Bali Holidays

Laidback luxury

Fascinating culture; serene spirituality; blissful beaches; Bali has it all. Perfect for a laid back, luxury honeymoon, Bali boasts beautiful beaches and temples as well as trendy restaurants and the chance to see breathtaking sunsets in Seminyak and not forgetting the lush rice fields. It’s an island dream you’ll wish to never wake up from. We recommend twinning a relaxed beach break with a few nights in Bali’s cultural hub, Ubud. Or, why not island hop to the Gili Islands to enjoy a few nights of rustic, quirky island life with amazing snorkelling and diving.

With no direct flights to Bali from the UK, this is the perfect time to stop over in another one of our luxury destinations. Choose from the glittering skyline and shopping malls of Singapore, the bustling, vibrant streets of Bangkok or the desert metropolis of Dubai.

Top Tips from our Experts

Christie

Destination Executive

If you have time, spend a few nights in the Gili Islands. These tiny islands have such a cool, rustic vibe and the snorkelling is amazing - the waters are crystal clear and you have a really good chance of seeing turtles.

Emma

Destination Manager

To see more of the island I recommend booking a car and driver for the day, we can arrange this before you travel. I did this on my honeymoon and it was great because we could choose exactly where we wanted to go and how long we wanted to spend in each place.

Frequently Asked Questions

The beaches in Bali are very varied. Nusa Dua and Sanur beaches are palm-fringed, white sandy beaches occupied by hotels and resorts, while Uluwatu Beach boasts dramatic cliff scenery. Eastern and Northern Bali beaches such as Lovina and Amed boast an off-grid feel and striking volcanic black sand. 

The Tanah Lot Temple is located on a small islet off Bali’s southwest coast, at the end of Jalan Raya Tanah Lot in Beraban village, Kediri. It’s around a 45–60-minute drive from Kuta and Seminyak, and a 75-minute drive from Ubud. It’s possible to take an organised tour or taxi here.
