For most of the people, traveling is all about exploring the world and its beauty, but for us it is the freedom of living one’s life to the fullest, each & every day. Going to new places helps us in gaining new experiences, and inspires us to push our limits. To be able to step out of our comfort zone and discover a new side of the world is a great feeling, and we want to cherish it for lifelong.
So luckily, since both of us share the same love for travel, when it came to picking a destination for our honeymoon, we finalized Bali as it had just the right kind of places and experiences that we wanted.

Best Things To Do On A Bali Honeymoon That Made Our Holiday Extra Special
1. Staying in a private pool villa
Our much-awaited romantic holiday in Bali kick-started when we touched down the Ngurah Rai International Airport. The view of Bali was breathtaking and it was difficult to hold our excitement now for long. We were soon picked up by our trip representative who drove us to our hotel in Seminyak.
The most special holiday of our lives deserves everything that’s extraordinary and so we had decided to stay in Kunti Villas wherein our room was actually a private pool villa. Everything seemed perfect and we spent the first day relaxing and soaking in the bliss of Bali.
2. Indulging in a spa therapy & watching sunset at Kuta Beach
One of the best things to do on a Bali honeymoon is to pamper yourselves well before you begin with the adventure, and that’s exactly what we did. Our Bali honeymoon package had a spa session organized for us at the Authentic Balinese SPA, which was the most soothing experience that we had on our trip. It was way too relaxing and it energized us completely for the rest of the day.
Soon after, we visited the nearby market and witnessed the sunset at the Kuta Beach. Needless to say, it was a sight worth capturing. Later, both of us came back to our villa, where a candlelight dinner was organized for us and our room was completely decorated with flowers. A day that started with pampering ended on the similar note, and our last night in the villa became even more special.
3. Scuba diving and parasailing in Nusa Dua

Amongst all the best things to do on a Bali honeymoon , indulging in water adventures in Nusa Dua is what we loved the most. Both of us did scuba diving and parasailing, of which the diving experience was absolutely heartwarming.
4. Visiting the famous Uluwatu Temple
Post our water sports session, we went for lunch to the Queens of India restaurant, and completely satiated our hunger pangs. Later, the two of us headed to the Uluwatu Temple, where we witnessed and captured its scenic beauty. It is undoubtedly one of the best places to see in Bali irrespective of one’s inclination to spirituality.

5. River rafting on the Ayung River
Our honeymoon in Bali was filled with both romance and adventures, and that’s what made it so unique and memorable. Even after indulging in water sports, we had rafting included our itinerary because both of just love tasting thrill. After having our breakfast, we headed to the Ayung River for river rafting, which indeed turned out to be the most exciting part of our trip.
We covered a distance of 10 km with a halt in between at a place selling snacks & drinks. The whole experience became more fun as it was raining throughout. At the end, we stopped by a waterfall for some photography and enjoying the local Indonesian cuisines for lunch.
6. Visiting the Monkey Forest and coffee plantations
Our Bali honeymoon also included a visit to the Monkey Forest, which is a popular tourist attraction on the island. However, it wasn’t something we enjoyed in comparison to the other experiences. But, it is a great place to spend an evening if you’re a wildlife enthusiast and an animal lover. We interacted with the monkeys and even clicked a few pictures together.
Later on our way to our resort, we stopped by at the Luwak coffee plantation, where one can taste a variety of coffees for free, and even buy them. But, not the most expensive ones as they can only be bought. It was definitely an enriching experience to have in Bali!
7. Taking an adventure-filled tour on the Bali Hai Cruise
Bali Hai is famous all across the world and we didn’t want to skip having a cruising experience at all. So, we had a full day tour in the Bali Hai Reef Cruise till the Nusa Lembongan Island. The cruise also took us to the pontoon and offered fun activities like the water sliding, scuba diving, mini submarine, banana boat ride, and more.
Later, we also went to tour the island with the guide. Our lunch was at the cruise itself and the live music added to the whole impeccable experience that we had been having.
8. Exploring the other popular places like Tanah Lot, Gitgit & more
Last but not the least, we also ticked off a visit to the Gitgit Waterfall, Ulun Danu Bratan Temple, and witnessing the Tanah Lot sunset from our bucket list. To reach the Gitgit waterfall, we walked from the car park and through many cloves plantations and other waterfalls. It was undeniably a blissful sight.
