Thousands of miles away from home, Taruna and Nitish experience a culture not so different, yet unique it’s own customs and traditions in a honeymoon trip to Bali. Read her invigorating account as she visits the serene temples, beaches, and forests the island has to offer. Their trip cost them a total of INR 1,10,500 which included their flights, transfers, accommodation, sightseeing, and breakfast.
I was fascinated with the stories of Bali and it’s natural beauty for a few years now. A honeymoon in Bali would be something memorable. While searching on the internet, I found out about TravelTriangle. They were providing a lucrative option of customizing tour package to Bali according to our needs.
I submitted a query with TravelTriangle and got a revert back from their representative. Amit understood my requirements connected me to various agents providing multiple offers for a honeymoon trip to Bali. I got the best deal given to me by ‘Happy Holidays’ agency.
So there we were, traveling to one of the most vibrant and colorful islands in Asia. An exotic vacation awaited us which would take us to see places we’ve never seen before in our lives.
Day 1: Arriving in magical Bali
We boarded the 1 am flight from Bangalore which arrived in Bali at 1 pm. The driver was present to receive and take us to the hotel in Kuta. After checking into the hotel, we decided to go for an evening walk at Kuta Beach. Our hotel had a drop service to Kuta beach which we used.
It was a mild evening which welcomed us to Indonesia. After having a romantic dinner at a beach side restaurant, we walked back to the hotel for the night taking in the sights and sounds of Bali.
Day 2: Cruising in Lembongan Island

The next morning we had breakfast and got ready for a 7 am pick up from the hotel for Lembogan Island. The cab dropped us at the beach and we boarded the cruise. The early morning cruise was pretty refreshing as the waves which hit the boat sprayed a sprinkle of water over us. We reached the island in 45 mins.
Lembongan Island was very beautiful and clean. To add to that, the water was crystal clear. We did some water activities like snorkeling, banana boat ride. Lunch was also included in our day tour. Saw some amazing fishes like clown fish during snorkeling. We left Lembomgan Island at 5 pm. We were really tired after an adventurous outing at Lembogan so we skipped the village tour and proceeded back to the hotel in Kuta for the night.
Day 3: Visiting the scenic volcano Mount Batur

The next day we woke up and got ready for Kintamani temple tour at 1 pm. It was compulsory to wear the traditional Hindu clothing (lungi) to enter the temple. Luckily, our driver was very proactive and helpful as he had already arranged the requisite clothing for us.
Post lunch, we went to Batur Lake. The scenic view of the lake was enhanced with the view of Mt Batur from a great vantage point. Although, the volcano is dormant for many decades, the destruction it left in Bali 50 years ago can still be seen. On our way back we visited a coffee and tea plantation. Over there, we tried different types of tea and coffee, some of them were indigenous to Bali.
On our way back, we visited a Traditional house of Indonesia. Our driver, who at that point felt like the smartest person in Bali, explained us the significance of customs and the way of living in Bali. The houses on the island were made of stone. We returned back to the hotel at 9 pm and called it a night.
Day 4: Feeding friendly monkeys
The next day, we woke up late as there was nothing planned for us early morning. Superman (cue- cab driver) was present to pick us up as promised, sharp at noon at the hotel. First up, we visited a local house where we saw how Sarees, also a traditional dress in Bali, are made.
Next up, we visited the Monkey forest in Ubud. It ws funny and refreshing to see how friendly the monkeys were to whom we fed Bananas. After spending an hour over there, we moved to Tanah Lot temple. When we reached it was drizzling. However, it cleared in a few hours to make way for a fantastic sunset. The view was beautiful, as the setting of the temple located on a rocky beach was very scenic. Post dinner, we returned back to hotel at 8 pm and rested for the night.

The next day, we checked out of the hotel and checked into private villa for 2 nights. After enjoying in the Villa pool for a few hours, we visited the Uluwatu Temple in the afternoon.
Post lunch, we saw the portrayal of Ramayana in a theater, near our villa, which was different from India again. We found it really interesting how they follow Hinduism and their worship of Lord Krishna and Radha which was different from the way we’ve worshiped the gods. We returned back to the villa at 8 pm and rested for the night.
Day 6&7 : Body healing spa and Shopping in Bali
At 9 am we visited the local theater in Kuta to see Barong and Keris (traditional Balinese) dance performances. After all this traveling, it was time to reward ourselves with a Spa session at 11 am. In the afternoon, we arrived back at the villa completely relaxed and energized. We explored the Denpasar market in the evening for some souvenir shopping for the evening.
On our final day in Bali, we decided to spend some time in the pool. We went for some quick shopping in the morning and came back to the villa to check out. Our flight was at 6 pm, so the driver was present to pick us up at 2 pm.
A romantic adventure that left us with an indelible impression of Indonesia in our hearts. Surely we couldn’t have had a better beginning to a new chapter in our lives. The people in Bali were nice, kind, and helpful which made our honeymoon trip to Bali even more impressive.
- Sunset at Tanah Lot was truly memorable.
- Lembogan Island and the cruise leading to it was amazing
- It was tough adjusting to limited food. Although, the locals helped us a lot with meals.
