If there’s one thing that I am way too passionate about, it is traveling. I love visiting new places, indulging in fancy experiences, and getting home everything that I can from there. And so even after getting married, I wanted to make sure that both my husband & I keep exploring new places as it gives an opportunity to spend quality time together and keeps the spark in one’s relationship alive. So, we decided to celebrate our first anniversary in Bali!
Bali had been on my mind for a very long time and our first anniversary seemed like the perfect occasion to live this dream. So, when we came across TravelTriangle on Facebook, we immediately raised a trip request and got an instant response from them, which was really impressive.

Things To Do In Bali That Made Our 1st Anniversary Super Romantic & Memorable
1. Indulging in water sports like banana boat ride, jet skiing & more
Upon our arrival in Bali, we were pretty tired, so we decided to take a day off and rest as soon as we reached our hotel. This helped in energising us for the adventures that were waiting for us at the beach next day.
Bali is known for its water sports experiences like surfing, jet skiing, and banana rides, and we ensured that the celebration of our anniversary in Bali started similarly on a thrilling note. So, from enjoying a tube ride to a banana boat ride, we did everything together on the second day of our trip.
2. Watching the Kecak Dance at Uluwatu Temple
One of the famous things to do in Bali is visiting the Uluwatu Temple and watching the Kecak Dance there. Soon after we got drenched in some adventure at the beach, we came back to the hotel, freshened up, and left for our visit to the temple. Post sunset, this dance performance looks like an absolutely a dramatic yet mesmerizing affair, and it left both of us spellbound. One should definitely include this in their Bali itinerary.
3. Enjoying a romantic dinner on the beach

Apart from sightseeing and adventurous activities, Bali is also famous for its beach side dinners. And since we wanted to celebrate our first anniversary in Bali in the most special way, our travel agent got a special dinner organized for us on the beach near our hotel.
Needless to say, the breathtaking views around and the elegant decoration left us speechless and it became our best night in Bali.
4. Chilling on the Kuta Beach & shopping
After having breakfast on the third day, we got ready to visit the Kuta Beach. Spending moments of bliss together on the white sand and amidst the turquoise waters was an experience of a lifetime.

Post this, both of us also went for shopping where we bought a lot of different souvenirs before we finally returned to our hotel to tick off the rest of the experiences mentioned in our itinerary for the day.
5. Witnessing the sunset near Tanah Lot Temple
Another romantic thing to do in Bali that we too did was witnessing the sunset near the Tanah Lot Temple. The beautiful view of the orange sky with a few blue hues made it a wow moment of our trip.
If I had to describe our experience in a few words, then I would say that we were captivated and totally in awe!
6. Staying in a beautiful ‘villa with a private pool’
One of the most important factors behind an extraordinary experience is a romantic stay, and we ensured that we experienced nothing less during our anniversary holiday in Bali. Our stay was booked at Kampoeng Villa where we had an entire villa to ourselves with a private pool. After soaking in such bliss and luxury together, we not only fell in love with Bali, but further more with each other.
7. Enjoying a scooty ride & exploring the beautiful beach clubs
While holidaying in Bali, we also wanted to have some ‘our time’ together, and our holiday planner ensured that we did. After reaching the villa, we took a Scooty and went for a romantic ride together, exploring the beauty of Bali. After a while, we also stopped by at the Finns Beach Club for a meal before we finally returned to our villa. In the evening, both of us also enjoyed a swim in the pool. All in all, it was one incredibly romantic day!
It was only due to these experiences that our first anniversary in Bali became one of its kind. With such beautiful memories & a lot of souvenirs, it became a bit easy and a bit hard at the same time to bid a final adieu to this paradise. But ultimately we had to, else we would have missed our flight.
