Places To Visit In Bali In 7 Days
We had 7 days in Bali that means we had ample time to cover major attractions on the island. These are a few of the places we recommend couples if they have 1 week in Bali.
1. Tanah Lot Temple
Built on a dramatic rock formation in the sea, we were smitten by the beauty of the temple and its surrounding. Tanah Lot is a famous Hindu Balinese pilgrimage site. We visited the temple in the evening when the sun was about to set and the scenery looked
absolutely surreal at that time.
2. Alas Harum Rice Plantations
The lush green rice plantations of Alas Harum in Tegallalang was one of the best places we visited on our honeymoon trip to Bali. Walking hand in hand amidst verdant greenery was not only charming but also invigorating. Bali is beautiful and we had no doubts when we laid our eyes on the plantations.
3. Kuta Beach
Our day at Kuta Beach was filled with fun and frolic. It is one of the most popular beaches in Bali and we could see why. It was crowded with tourists. The ambiance of this place was pleasant and jovial.
4. Double Six Beach, Seminyak
Thank God to numerous beaches in Bali, we hopped from one happening spot to another. Double Six Beach in Seminyak was another beach we liked the most. It is famous for mostly watching the sunset and partying. We took a romantic walk on half a kilometer long stretch of golden white sand. Looking back at it, we were really making sweet memories.
Things To Do In 7 Days In Bali For Couples
Here are all the exciting things we enjoyed doing on our honeymoon in Bali. These experiences really made our trip from better to great.
1. Water Sports Activities At Tanjung Benoa
How could we call it quits on our Bali trip without participating in the water activities? We had a thrilling experience of river rafting at Tanjung Benoa. It added a dash of adventure in our lovey-dovey holiday.
2. Candle-lit Dinner
Could there be more romantic experience in Bali than enjoying a candle-lit dinner by the sea? I think not. It is one of the most cherishable memories from our honeymoon in Bali. not only did we get to spend some quality time together, but also taste sumptuous cuisine. It was hands-down the best night of our life.
3. Bali Cruise
The evening cruise in Bali was one of the highlights of our trip. There were live entertainment and a lavish international buffet. The tropical atmosphere and us floating on the water really took the experience up a notch.
Shopping In Bali
Bali has got some finest and largest stores for shopping. One of them is Agung Bali. It has very reasonable prices and a lot of options to choose from, right from clothing and accessories to day-to-day household stuff. I would suggest visiting this store at least once.

Hotels For 7 Days In Bali For Couples
Here are the places where we stayed on our 7 days in Bali. We had an amazing experience of staying at a hotel and pool villa which we recommend every couple to choose.
1. Ramada by Wyndham, Kuta
We spent the first four night of our honeymoon in Bali at Ramada by Wyndham. The plush property is located on the famous Sunset Road in Kuta. We chose a Superior room and the breakfast was included. We liked the hospitality of the staff. The service was great. We had a pleasant time.
2. New Pondok Saras Villas, Seminyak
We had a one bedroom apartment all to ourselves in Seminyak that came along with a private poo. We spent our time lazing around in the pool, the way any relaxing holiday should be. We made the best of our last two days in Bali. The holiday is over but I am still not out of the utopia.
Restaurant & Nightlife In Bali
These are some of the best restaurants and bars in Bali that we would like to recommend fellow travelers who are planning a trip for 7 days in Bali.
1. Queens of India
Since I am a vegetarian, we had a little bit of difficulty finding vegetarian food on the island. There are a few Indian restaurants in Bali and we even tried some places but none of them was as good as the Queens of India. It was where we had the best Indian meal on our vacation. The restaurant was a bit pricey but it was worth it.
2. Potato Head Beach Club
One of the most happening places in Bali, we had a great time at Potato Head Beach Club. there were no entry fees to get inside but if you want a separate cabana or gazebo, you would have to spend a minimum amount to get the place to yourself. All in all, we had a blast during our visit here.
3. Rock Bar
We had the best of our evening at Rock Bar in Jimbaran. Since the place was located by the sea, we got to enjoy our refreshing drinks with the intoxicating views of the ocean. With 7 days in Bali for couples, this is a must-visit place. No wonder it is one of the most popular places to enjoy the nightlife in Bali. the deck sat on a limestone cliff over the sea and I don’t think there could be a more awesome setting to enjoy the sunset.
Bali Travel Tips
Here are some important tips we would like to convey to other travelers visiting Bali anytime soon. Hope these make your holiday hassle-free.
- If you are a vegetarian, carry packaged food otherwise you will have to struggle to find vegetarian food on the island. Even if you do manage to find places, you won’t enjoy the taste.
- When going for water sports, carry an extra pair of clothes as the once you will be wearing will get wet and dirty in the water.
- Do carry adequate medicines and First aid kit for emergency situations.
