Golden beaches, misty volcanoes and spectacular sunsets are all part and parcel of romantic Bali. If you're in the mood for love, you may just want to elope to a sun-drenched beach in a haven for people seeking inner harmony.
Love in Bali
Being a romantic soul, I loved both the book and the movie Eat Pray Love, where Liz Gilbert (played by Julia Roberts) stepped out of her comfort zone and embarked on a journey around the world that became her quest for self-disvovery.

In her travels, she discovered the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and finally and unexpectedly, the inner harmony of love in romantic Bali.
The island truly is a sanctuary for lovers. If you want to follow in the footsteps of Elizabeth Gilbert, consider renting a villa in Ubud, a tranquil and spiritual village where you can focus on the sweetness of happiness. Ubud has a lot of yoga studios, quirky little cafes and restaurants, bookstores and spas - perfect for a couple who is yearning to enjoy 'being in the moment'. It is also the art centre of Bali and neighbouring villages are well known for unique bamboo crafts and furniture, wood and stone carvings and various other crafts.
Ulin Villas and Spa
For a wonderfully romantic Balinese experience, surprise your lover with a few days in the Ulin Villas in ultra stylish Seminyak. These beautiful villas are within walking distance of some of the best restaurants, nightlife venues and trendy boutiques and a few minutes from some of Bali's beautiful white sand beaches.
The Ulin Villas and Spa offers 14 boutique villas that ensure privacy within their walled courtyard and manicured tropical garden. In your villa you can relax in a private swimming pool and you can both visit one of the 10 spa therapy suites for a little piece of heaven as per their menu of spa rituals. Here you can discover Bali's best kept beauty secrets through the healing hands of superbly trained therapists using nourishing, natural products, pure oils, and herbs and spices to nurture the skin and satisfy the senses.
