One of the most important questions that one is faced with is the decision of the vacation destination. It was extremely baffling to decide where to go in the world, since there are so many places that both of us wanted to visit. We chose Bali as our destination since we were looking for a trip that offered us the perfect balance of leisure and luxury on one hand and adventure and nature on the other hand.
We booked our Bali Honeymoon package via Smart Holiday Shop; and were impressed with their customer service! Their agent who was assigned to us was very helpful and helped us in customizing our Bali Honeymoon Package at an amazing price!
Our memorable trip began with taking an overnight flight from New Delhi to Bali. My husband and I took comfortable seats and rested ourselves well during the flight in order to brace ourselves for the magnificent days that were waiting for us! We reached Bali at 11:00 a.m. and checked into our Hotel, Fontana Bali in Kuta district. On our first day, we wanted to relax and unwind and went to spend some time together at the Seminyak Beach. After getting a great tan and sipping on some refreshing cocktails with a lovely view of the sunset; we headed to the nearest Shopping Mall, The Discovery Mall to purchase gifts and souvenirs for our friends and family. We returned to our hotel for a scrumptious meal and called it a night.
On our second day, we decided to explore the best places to visit in bali for honeymoon and headed to the Gitgit waterfalls. They are located on the northern side of the famous South Asian island. It is one of the most acclaimed tourist attraction in Bali and is praised for its walkaway bridge and chilly water which was fun to play with! Then, we headed to the Tanah Lot temple and while enjoying a view of the sunset, we took sips from the holy water that flows at the bottom of the temple. It is constructed on a large rock amidst the ocean and is popularly known as the “Sunset Temple”; and is a treat to the eyes! After this, we enjoyed a dinner of seafood at a local restaurant and went back to our hotel to get some rest!

The third day was carved out especially to chill at the Seminyak beach, which is one of the most popular and high-end areas in Bali. We looked at all the luxury properties in Seminyak on our way to the beach and had a great time! After chilling on the beach for a while, we headed to Potato Head Beach Club which deserves to be one of the best places in Bali for sure! There are two infinity pools and many lounge chairs and bean bags that are colorful and vibrant. The atmosphere at this place is what tourism in Bali is all about! We chilled in the pool and after the water made us salvate for food, we gorged on mouthwatering dishes served here and enjoyed cocktails the whole time! In the evening, we went back to our hotel and got dressed for dinner in the town. We went to an authentic Indonesian restaurant to have dinner and after having our tummies full, headed back to the hotel for a good night’s sleep.
We woke up to a decadent spread of continental and Indonesian breakfast at our hotel’s dining hall and after eating enough to get energy for the day and not drowsing off to sleep. Then, we decided to do something adventurous and headed to Mount Batur and kintamani volcano for sightseeing. This is an active volcano and hikers love to climb on it. It is a beauty at sunrise and offers some spectacular views as well and we would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Bali for 5 Nights and 6 Days.
On the 5th day, we had an early morning and headed to Ubud, from the “Eat, Pray, Love” fame for a fulfilling day. We started with the famous Tegallalang Rice Terraces in Ubud known for their beautiful scenes of rice paddies involving the subak (traditional Balinese cooperative irrigation system), which according to history, was passed down by a revered holy man named Rsi Markandeya in the eighth century. Tegallalang forms the three most splendid terraced landscapes in Ubud’s shared region, with the others being in the villages of Pejeng and Campuhan. The Tegallalang rice terraces alone offers a scenic outlook that spread down before you and away to the rice paddies on the slopes across the valley. The high roadside location is cool and breezy and it is a well-known spot for tourists to stop and take photos. Painters and nature lovers also enjoy visiting this 7 spot, and there are numerous art kiosks and cafes near the ledge offering their ware.
After that, we headed to taste authentic Bali teas and coffees at Satria Coffee Plantation, located in a lush jungle setting. This plantation remains best known for offering kopi luwak or civet coffee, produced with beans previously eaten, partially digested, and then excreted by the Asian palm civet, a small tree-climbing animal. Despite–or because of–this undeniably unappealing production method, kopi luwak remains among the most expensive coffees on the planet. Take a guided walk around the jungle plantation to learn more about the unusual production process.
On the sixth and our last day of exploring Bali, we decided to seek some thrill on our third day by indulging in water sports in Nusa Dua. Both us us are harcore adrenaline junkies and experienced jet skiing, banana boat ride, and paragliding. After which, we went and tried scuba diving and snorkeling as well! Activities of the entire day got us famished and we proceeded to a well-known Indian restaurant, Atithi in Kuta for dinner.

We woke up to a morning that looked rather gloomy since it was our last day in Bali. It was time to say goodbye to the beautiful country and head back home. We checked out of our hotel and proceeded to the airport to take our flight back to New Delhi!
Now that we look back on it, our vacation in Bali was dreamy and breathtakingly beautiful! It was very romantic as well as packed with adventure. We spent moments amidst nature, luxury, adventure and most of all, each other’s love that we will cherish for the rest of our lives together.
