“We felt Bali was the perfect destination to unwind, relax, and cherish each other’s company post our wonderful wedding celebrations.”
Bali had always fascinated us. My husband and I knew it was a famous choice for honeymooners and upon our research, we soon found out why. Breathtaking natural marvels, amazing places for sightseeing, cultural shows, and a lot of luxury – made Bali an ideal choice for couples and needless to say, we all the more wanted to experience this place now! All that was left now was package for our honeymoon in Bali and that too was soon taken care of by TravelTriangle.
We booked our 6 Nights 7 Days Bali honeymoon package from TravelTriangle.com which we had found on the internet. The USP of this travel platform was they they could customize our Bali tour package as per our needs via the special agents that they had on-board. And upon raising a request for the same, a TravelTriangle representative soon got in touch with us and further connected us to various specialized travel agents for Bali. These agents understood our requirements and started sending us quotes and itineraries as per our needs. We finally selected the best among them – “Perfect O Holiday”, who not only gave us a budget friendly quote but also did not compromise on any luxury features in our package.

We took a flight from Mumbai to Singapore with a stopover of 3 hours at Changi International airport. Our connecting flight was with Garuda Indonesia with a journey of approximately 2 hours. Visa is free on arrival (for Indians).
Day 1: Hello Bali
We reached Ngurah Rai International Airport in the afternoon and on checkout, were warmly greeted by our tour guide who transferred us to the The Kana Kuta Hotel by a private cab. Here, once again, we were welcomed with refreshing drinks, snacks, and cold towels. Since it was already afternoon, we had no activities planned for the day and thus we decided to rest for a while. In the evening we spent some time soaking in the beauty of the hotel and explored the nearby local area and shopping mall.
Day 2: White Water River Rafting, Mount Batur, Coffee Plantation, Ubud rice terrace fields, & Balinese Spa and massage
Our day 2 was action packed and it began with an incredible river rafting experience in the beautiful Ayung River. It’s a 10 km stretch with 2 stops for relaxation. Gushing waters of Ayung river further added a pinch of thrill to our rafting experience and overall, we loved it! Next we proceeded to visit the famous Mount Batur and on our way came across several beautiful landscapes, waterfalls, and rock sculptures from Ramayana and Mahabharata. In the end, we had to climb a long flight of stairs which was difficult and by the time, we reached the top, we were already panting.
However, the view and scenic beauty of Mount Batur washed away all our tiredness and stood there for a while, soaking in all the visual natural delight that was in front of us. We then had a delicious lunch in the background of the semi active volcano. It was a phenomenal experience and we loved the setting.
After spending some quality time together we moved on to Coffee plantation farms where we tasted many varieties of coffee and tea like Balinese, ginger, mango stein, lemon, lemongrass, vanilla, cocoa, coconut etc. We also saw the famous “Luwak” and process of manufacturing the world’s most expensive coffee “Kopi Luwak”. We have to pay extra for tasting luwak coffee but we didn’t have the heart to drink coffee made out of poop. (Haha!)
We visited the aesthetic Ubud with its lush green landscapes and rice paddies. It reminded us of our hometown in Udupi, Mangalore. Our last stop of the day was an authentic Balinese spa experience which was very rejuvenating. Our day was spent well, and back in Bali, we completely relaxed and at peace.
Day 3: Shopping in Kuta
This was a leisure day for us and we decided to indulge ourselves in shopping. We availed the free shuttle service from our hotel to Beachwalk shopping mall. It is located bang opposite to the Kuta Beach and has many brands to shop. We also explored the markets of Kuta which has wide varieties clothes, souvenirs and cafes. Our day came to an end with a romantic dinner date next to the pool at our hotel and the amazing Indonesian food comprised of rich and spicy chicken satay, nasi goreng, chicken kung fu, and shrimp crackers (slurp worthy!).
Day 4: Turtle Island, Dreamland Beach, Uluwatu Temple, & Kecak dance
After a heavy breakfast today, we headed to Tanjung Benoa for water sports. At Benoa, we further proceeded to the Turtle Island on a private glass boat tour. We took many pictures with Turtles, Eagles, Bats and Snakes and it was truly a unique and beautiful experience. Post lunch we headed to relax on Dreamland beach where we had lot of fun in the pearl white sand and blue waters. In other words, we spent quite a lot of quality time here and in the end promised ourselves to come back here once again in future.
In the evening we visited Uluwatu temple built on top of a cliff. The name is derived from two words ‘Ulu’ means head or top and ‘watu’ means rock or stone and it is an apt name for the incredible temple. Our guide had warned us about the monkeys who were busy stealing sunglasses, slippers, and perfume bottles and we made sure we followed it. Afterwards we enjoyed the traditional Kecak dance which is based on Ramayana. The sunset was surreal and watching the performance with oceanic background was magical experience. We especially enjoyed the performance of Hanuman and Ravana as they were very interactive with crowds.
Our day ended with a romantic dinner date at Jimbaran Bay where we kicked off our sandals and walked around barefooted in the sand. However, the food was overpriced and not good but the ambience of the place was lovely. So overall, we did have a great time here.

Day 5: Shopping in Legion and transfer to a private pool villa
After a sumptuous breakfast today, we checked out of our hotel in Kuta and proceeded to Legion where we checked into our new hotel – Legian Kriyamaha Villa. Here we were allotted our villa which had its own private pool with Jacuzzi bath tub. And although the villa was located at an isolated place in the property yet the service and ambience were commendable.
Agung Bali is good for shopping and has variety of souvenir collection. Post lunch we headed to the Tanah Lot Temple. It is surrounded by sea and view is breathtaking during the high tides. Even though it was drizzling slightly, yet there was a steady flow of tourist here. We also captured pictures of the incredible sunset and the magnificent beauty of the surroundings.
Day 6: Shopping in Seminyak Square and a visit to the village
I found Bali isn’t as fantastic place to shop as compared to Bangkok. Things aren’t cheap and there is not much scope to bargain for clothes. Yet I found the best stretch of shopping in Seminyak square with lots of boutiques and street shopping as well. This was a pretty cool place and we had the best lunch date here at The Breeze at Samaya amidst a perfect backdrop of sun, sand, and sea. The food and ambience were absolutely perfect.
Day 8: Goodbye Bali
We just didn’t want to leave this paradise and our villa but time has come to bid adieu and go back home. After enjoying one final breakfast at the hotel, we headed to airport for our flight back to Mumbai.
Overall our honeymoon trip was a grand adventure and our most memorable trip ever! It was so surreal and tantalizing that we feel like going on another vacation again! Truly, a paradise for honeymooners!
Tips for travelers:
- One Indian rupee is roughly about 200 Indonesian rupiah. So if you want to convert currency in India itself and take along it would be too much as you will end up carrying lakhs. We carried money in dollars ($100 notes will get good rates on them compared with $10 or $20 notes). There are plenty of money exchangers in Bali who give good rates and they are easily available throughout the place.
- Bali has limited options for vegetarians; however there are Indian restaurants chains like Queen’s and Mantra. Another alternative is chains like McDonald, Domino’s, Burger King, KFC.
- Bluebird taxis are best to explore around in areas like Kuta, Seminyak, and Legian
- Carry light breathable clothes as the tropical weather is hot and humid. Comfy footwear and sunscreen is a must too.
- Dreamland Beach – Perfect spot and it isn’t as crowded like Kuta, Legian and Seminyak. We spent amazing time together as a couple and it’s a photographer’s fantasy location. We both feel it is the most beautiful beach in the world.
- Splendid lunch date in Breeze at The Samaya. So glad we explored this spot.
- River Rafting was a mind blowing experience.
- Highly recommend couples to experience private pool villas. Incredible experience.
- Wifi facility was not good at The Kana Kuta hotel.
- We had planned for a trekking trip to Mount Batur but due to some landslides in that area we had to skip this.
