“In my 15-year experience of traveling outside India, I had never purchased a package from a travel company. But I happily made an exception thanks to the excellent expertise and know-how of TravelTriangle that guided me towards a relaxing and rejuvenating 5 nights/ 6 days romantic vacation in Bali.”
Having been married for seven years, this was the first trip alone for my wife and I since we had our daughter three years ago. We had a rare chance to relax and unwind keeping aside all the parental responsibilities temporarily.
About Our Romantic Vacation In Bali
I found out about TravelTriangle on Google while searching for online travel portals. Initially, I was unsure between Maldives- where I wanted to stay in a water villa or Singapore and Malaysia with a two-day cruise on our itinerary.
However, after understanding the type of trip we were looking for, the TravelTriangle representative suggested Bali as the ideal destination. I was very impressed by the appeal of Bali as a holiday destination. A romantic vacation in Bali had us under budget, spending more days, and doing more activities. And just like that, we quickly booked our Bali package without any hesitation whatsoever.
Trip Cost: INR 55,000
Trip Duration: 5 nights/6 days
Agent Name: Shoes On Loose
Inclusions: Transfers, accommodation, breakfast, sightseeing, water sports, and taxes

Day 1: We kicked off with a beach-side dinner!
After taking a flight from New Delhi, we landed in Denpasar, Bali at 1 pm. From the airport, our driver picked us up and dropped us at Risata Resort in Kuta. We decided to rest for a few hours to get rid of the tiredness from our long flight.
In the evening, we walked for 5 minutes and reached the Kuta beach for our beachside candle-light dinner. This was the moment we immersed ourselves completely into a romantic vacation in Bali.
Day 2: Ubud shopping & monkey mania!
The next morning, we had breakfast and got ready for our Kintamani and Ubud tour. First up, we saw the picturesque Kintamani volcano on a clear morning and followed that up with a visit to the Monkey Forest in Ubud. The forest, a sacred land for the Balinese people, was where we saw hundreds of Balinese long tailed monkeys living in their natural habitat and being looked after by forest guards.
Our tour ended with a visit to the vibrant Ubud street market. A lot of things caught our eye during our short shopping visit in Ubud. Later in the evening, we dropped by at the Kuta market to have dinner and then proceed to the resort for the night.

Day 3: The dolphins brightened up our day
This day, we woke up very early and got ready by 3 am to depart for dolphin sightseeing on Lovina Beach. It was an incredible experience seeing dolphins at sunrise all around us in their natural habitat. Seeing dolphins not bound to any zoo, national park, or oceanarium was immensely pleasing to the eye.
In the afternoon, we decided to skip Tanah Lot tour because we felt exhausted from our early morning exploits. Also, there was an extra motivating factor in returning to the hotel as we were due for a spa session in the evening. The time spent at The Orchid Spa was truly incredible as we received much-needed relief from the mental and physical tiredness in our lives.
In the evening, we celebrated my birthday by going to an amazing pub in central Kuta. The nightlife was supreme and the club had an electrifying vibe to it.
Day 4: We even had our very own private luxury villa!
This morning, we checked out of Kuta and moved to Transera Grand Kancana Villa in Seminyak. After settling into the villa, we proceeded for water sports at Nusa Dua Beach.
Parasailing, jet skiing, banana boat ride, or underwater sea walk. You name it, and we did it! Although we couldn’t see much of marine life as expected in the underwater sea walk, we had a cameraman clicking underwater photos and videos that made our time during this activity memorable.
After the water sports, we were scheduled for a half day sightseeing tour in Bali, which we asked the agency to alter it to only beaches in Bali. Cutting down on a few places to visit every day was done on purpose, as we realized that focussing on quality rather than quantity would give us the most enjoyment on this romantic vacation in Bali.

Day 5 & 6: Ended the trip on a perfect relaxing note
The fifth day of our trip to Bali was a leisure day. That day, we mostly enjoyed relaxing in the amazing villa we stayed in by getting up really late and skipping breakfast. The pool and the interiors of the villa were mind boggling.
In the evening, we set foot out of our villa and visited the Kuta market to buy some gifts and souvenirs for our loved ones. We ended the evening by having dinner at our favorite Indian restaurant – Spice Mantra.
On the final day, we checked out of the villa at 9 am and proceeded to the airport for our flight back to New Delhi. My wife and I were so excited to go home after an immensely successful romantic vacation in Bali. We couldn’t wait to share the experience with our friends and family, and meet our daughter after six days!

Taking a package for a vacation instead of planning everything myself turned out to be a successful experiment. Although I knew I could have planned this trip myself, but to not have the stress and anxiety that came with organizing a vacation was liberating. It helped me enjoy a great deal more with my wife as this vacation was all about putting aside all responsibilities and just letting ourselves free for a week.
At the end of it all, we came back home with beautiful memories from an island that was spoilt with natural beauty. The hospitality of the people in Bali along with their faith in the gods above was truly remarkable to see.
Why I chose TravelTriangle and recommend the same to the others
- For us, choosing TravelTriangle proved to be the best thing due to the many little things that were perfectly streamlined by their agent and supplier.
- The honest holidaying advice given to me by TravelTriangle made complete sense. The reason why I purchased a package from them was that unlike other travel portals who just left an email with me, they understood my needs, gave me proper guidance, and finally left enough room for me to build a customized package.
- Our driver in Bali was well-versed in English with good factual knowledge about Bali ,and he double timed as a guide for us too. Therefore, I felt that we got a very luxurious romantic vacation in Bali at the price we paid.
- Throughout the trip, the driver was very punctual in picking us up and taking us wherever we were supposed to be. At all times, there was a local agent just a phone call away to solve any of our problems or to advise us regarding any matter.
- Risata Resort was just a five-minute walk from the beach and the main market in Kuta. The food served at the resort was delicious, and the rooms were very comfortable. We saved a lot of money by hiring a taxi. The hotel turned out to be a very good recommendation.

High points of our trip:
- Taking part in water sports at Nusa Dua beach was an incredible experience on our romantic vacation in Bali.
- The easiest thing to find in Bali were beautiful beaches.
- The private villa in Seminyak was extremely luxurious and it was more than what we hoped.
Low point of our trip:
- The third day could’ve been planned better. After the early morning dolphin show, the number of temples covered should be less.
