7 Dreamy Bali Date Nights

If you and your loved one are thinking about taking a well-deserved break, you can’t go wrong in choosing Bali as your destination. This Indonesian island is chock full of options for romantic evenings and exhilarating dates with your special someone and you can stay in some of the finest luxury villas in the world without breaking the bank.

Whether you stay in Seminyak. Canggu or further up the coast you can easily get a driver to ferry you in air-conditioned comfort to any of the below spots. Consider spending a lazy afternoon canoodling in private beach caves, taking dips in the crystal clear ocean, or dining above the dense jungles and valleys of Ubud. Bali is the perfect place for lovebirds looking to spend some quality time together and we’ve got some incredible accommodation options to choose from.

1. Start things off with a romantic dinner

We had to start with the classic so if you’re dreaming of mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine by the beach then this is your number one stop. Seminyak pioneer La Lucciola offers all that and more without the high overheads. Head to this dreamy beach-side restaurant for an unforgettable evening with your partner. Arrive a little earlier and you’ll get to enjoy the famous Bali sunset while you sip on one of their gorgeous fruity or spicy cocktails. The menu is seasonal, the wine menu extensive and the service is always impeccable. This place is truly a gem in the Bali gastro scene and sure to impress your number one squeeze.

2. Have your cake and eat it too!

If you two find yourself a bit peckish in the afternoon, head to Metis for a perfect little daytime afternoon tea date. Gorgeous gardens and an adorable multi-tiered platter full of dainty pastries are a winning combination to reconnect at a time when you’d normally be at work. The ‘Melati’ package is ideal for those who prefer something savoury while the ‘Alamanada’ suits those with a sweet tooth. This luxurious little afternoon date will only set you back 210,000 IDR and the views are just as lovely as the food.

3. Enjoy lush couple’s pamper package

If you and your darling are in desperate need of some rejuvenation, a day spent at the spa is probably just what the doctor ordered. Seminyak is absolutely full of spas, but if we had to recommend one it would be the iconic Sundari Day Spa. It’s a top spot for luxurious pampering. Opt for the couples’ massage and follow that up with a scrub and then the ultra-romantic rose bath. We guarantee you’ll both feel reborn. Oh, and if they happen to be booked on the day, we’ve also listed some other top spa locations for your perusal.

4. Cozy up for a movie at Karma Beach

Since you’re in beautiful Bali anyway, don’t miss a chance to take a day trip to enjoy the gorgeous beaches on the other side of the Island. On the Bukit Peninsula lies one of Bali’s most exclusive clubs, Karma Kandara resort. This idyllic beach club is the ideal place to laze away together on a sunlounger. Located on a limestone cliff, Karma Kandara can only be accessed by a private elevator down a cliff, making it extra romantic. With infinite stretches of sea in the foreground and charming Aegean sea-inspired décor throughout, this venue is a feast for the eyes. And, every Monday at 6.30 pm, Karma Kandara host a movie night under the starry sky. It’s the perfect chance to cuddle up with your loved one and enjoy a film after that stunning sunset.

5. See a Kecak dance and lounge as the sun sets over Jimbaran

If we’re honest, the Bukit Peninsula is a must-see for couples while in Bali. The beaches along this stretch are some of the most stunning on the island and you’re guaranteed to have a memorable day there. During low tide, many of the beaches have rockpools full of intriguing marine left and beautiful shells. Whenever you feel like it, take a break from the sun and retreat to one of the many cosy, cool caves.
While you’re there you can visit Uluwatu temple during sunset for the legendary Balinese Kecak dance. This tells the thrilling story of Rama and Sita and makes the perfect backdrop if you’re planning on popping the question. Then, if a candle-lit seafood dinner on the beach sounds like the next logical step, head to Jimbaran which is only 15 minutes away by taxi. Clams, prawns and various types of fish have been barbecued to perfection and go perfectly with a bottle of crisp white wine. The soothing sea breeze and twinkling stars are perfect accompaniments to this ultra-romantic evening. If you want to make an evening of it we also have properties in this area which you can book for a holiday from your holiday.

6. Row a boat for two on Tamblingan Lake

Tamblingan lake is the perfect place to sit quietly and enjoy each other’s company in beautiful surroundings. Largely untouched and brimming with natural beauty, Tamblingan Lake would make for a perfect picnic location. Next to this stunning lake are a few great places for a trek and there’s even a boat rental place for fishing or simply rowing through the magnificent lake. The park nearby is serene there are lots of benches for sitting together and enjoying a snack

7. Step back in time with some Ubud history

Are you and your loved one knew for being a little adventurous? Enjoy a different side of Bali and take a trek through the sacred monkey forest or the most stunning rice terrace in Ubud. While you’re in Bali’s cultural centre, don’t forget to visit the oldest temple in Bali, Gunung Kawi, from the 11th century. Ubud is also full of healthy cafes so you can enjoy a delicious and nutritious meal with your partner in between activities. If you want a taste of Indonesian art and culture, there are several art galleries and a handful of museums to check out too. Think hand holding and quiet contemplation of life’s beauty.
