Bali is a great destination to enjoy the first days of marital bliss and unwind after your wedding. However, deciding where to stay in Bali for your honeymoon can be just as difficult as choosing where to say "I do." It could make your head spin! There are many resorts, hotels, and private villas and a variety of luxury-filled choices to consider.

When choosing where to stay in Bali for your honeymoon, you could compare prices and amenities to narrow the search down. There are other important considerations, as well. For example, you don't want to end up in the middle of tourist central unless it's a conscious choice. Location matters even more than price when planning where to go in Bali for your honeymoon.

Here are some of the top choices for a great Bali honeymoon. This list is not in ranking order because all of these are great places you should consider in Bali! With that in mind, let's go over where to stay, area-wise.

Honeymoon in Tabanan

Rice fields in Tabanan Bali

The regency of Tabanan is located in West Bali, and it's known for its amazing green. In case you wonder if there are any beaches, yes! There are many spectacular beaches there, and they are quiet and secluded—no loud music, no hordes of tourists-- just nature at its best.

What makes Tabanan special is that it is located away from the hustle and bustle of more tourist-heavy places. If looking to enjoy the culture, temples, rolling hills, and hidden beaches of Bali, then Tabanan is the perfect Bali honeymoon destination.

While many other popular parts of Bali are filled with resorts and hotels, Tabanan has a light infrastructure. This has helped keep its pristine beauty intact. Tabanan has more private villas than large resorts, and The Cove Bali is a great example of such private villas.

Tabanan is a perfect location for newlyweds to fully enjoy the romance of the new marriage, surrounded by the beauty of the real Bali.

Lovina Love

Temples in Lovina Bali

This resort area on the North coast of Bali is home to black volcanic sand as well as its 5-mile beach and fantastic temples. The area, dotted with several small villages, is a great place to go snorkeling and scuba diving. If you are searching for calmer areas and underwater adventures, this is a great spot for a honeymoon in Bali.

Near Lovina, you will also find Menjangan Island's protected marine natural park, a treasure trove of coral and colorful fish. The scuba diving and snorkeling here are second to none. The villages in the North of Bali retain a quaint and laid-back quality, conducive to romantic dinners for two.

Kuta Beach

Kuta Beach Honeymoon destination

If surfing and great nightlife are what you enjoy, then Kuta Beach is where to stay in Bali for your honeymoon. What was once a small fishing village has become one of the premier vacation destinations in Bali.

Kuta Beach is home to the bustling nightlife of the island. There are plenty of places to stay while enjoying one of Bali's most scenic and well-maintained beaches. Due to the awesomeness of Kuta Beach, there is always a crowd here. Tourists, both local and foreign, day-trippers, surfing enthusiasts, and beach lovers are constantly around in big numbers.

If you are looking for shopping, dancing, people-watching, and well-known chain stores and restaurants, then Kuta is the place for you. However, if you dream of a romantic stroll on a deserted beach, stay away! Kuta is tourist central, and you can't escape the crowds.

Do you love going out to see people and be seen? Then search for villas and resorts in Seminyak when deciding where to stay in Bali for your honeymoon.
