ya, me too. my second visit will be next month.
Bali to me is not for honeymoon or whatever, it's for rest & relaxing. I enjoy staying in Ubud, peace & quiet.
Just that last visit i missed out lovina & bersakih, then next trip will cover it. The rest of the day i will enjoy spa & massage, reading & jogging near beaches, walk around, eat & shop.  whistling.gif

I didn't go those two places as well. But lovina really no plans to go there. My friends told me its just not as nice as what ppl say about the dolphin sighting. Atleast for me I felt its really not that entertaining furthermore to drive all the way there.

But definitely the next time I go, I will make sure that I know how to drive a bike. It will nice to rent a scooter to drive around ubud. In and out of the hotel, just to chill around the area.

Ya.. I wanna learn when I was in Nusa lembongan, but our resort owner say its too dangerous to learn there coz road condition is not good for beginners. Same very evening while on the way for our dinner, we bump into a mat salleh that accident and had his arms and leg bandaged lol.

Last week was in bali. for 4 days. Managed to go most of the must visit places.

Danusaputera's guide was good. Met His brother Miko and Bowo (our Driver) Young and sporting person. Wherever you want to go. just tell him. he will bring you there. They did suggest on our agenda also. Enjoyed our trip to Bali.

Maybe will go there again. Still got places that we havent visit. Not enough time. And sunsets most of the time raining. cant see the beauty of the bali sunset.

Will try to upload some photos, if its nice tongue.gif

Thankyou for coming ! biggrin.gif

just came back from Bali last sunday....if ur a temple (ancient) fan, it should be fun.

bear in mind, the travel distance from 1 location to another will take 2-3 hours 1 way (Bali is a 5000km island). so, you need to really plan where you want to visit. we wasted a lot of time sitting in the bus.

things to do:
1. surf
2. clubbing
3. kopi luwak
4. Mount Agung and Mount Batur (volcano's, chilly weather)
5. kuta beach
6. shopping (quite cheap compared to phuket, krabi)

btw, I got the best TT services I've ever experienced from http://www.pandawalimatour.com/

I also just came back two weeks ago but first time went there. However what u really enjoy the most?

For me it's just so so, I just like staying in ubud. If there is a chance for second visit I will make it 5 days stay in ubud. Just eat sleep and lepak around there just like those mat sallehs

Puncak Bagus is nice.. so cooling. Danau Bratan & Ulun danu is very beautiful.. Cheap painting at Tanah Lot also is a plus! (cheaper than those at Krabi)..
Ubud layback environment also is a plus-plus.. thats all I can say icon_rolleyes.gif

I'm going to Lombok in August to explore the other side of the island next.. rclxm9.gif

I stayed at Puri Sebatu at Tegalalang. It's about 30 - 45 minutes drive away. Damn nice!

p.s. anyone has any nice driver to recommend who don't mind to bring guests to different silver shops & wood carving shops, not only those shops that give commission to the driver? planning my next trip there to hunt for silver & wood carvings, but most of the drivers only willing to bring us to shops that they have deals with. mad.gif

my previous driver was a nice guy, recommended us to a lot of cheap good food, but for these wood & silver shops, we noticed he drove us straight to very expensive shops, bypassing a lot of others along the way. when we asked him about those other shops, all he said was, not good quality.

But keep in mind the place is not near any shops or restaurants ya.. however, if your purpose to bali is to relax and not be disturbed by people, then this is the place to go..

the villa is great, the bathroom is even better!! it's very large, with rain shower facility and a HUGE fabulous bath tub with a beautiful view...the bathtub can easily fit 2 large adults and still have ample space to move around.. i'm so in love with the bathroom!

the shuttle service is supposed to be every 3 hourly to Ubud, but the staff were very nice and can help to arrange car transfer to ubud as & when you need. needless to say i spent an entire day just lazing in the villa. thumbup.gif

by the way, if you choose to stay in other villas in Ubud, please do a review & recommendation if its good.

Guys,

Need your valuable feedback/advice/suggestions, etc.

Next year February 2014 I am getting married and plan our 1st honeymoon, Bali. Thought going there by Air Asia (got better suggestion?). My future wife loves nature scenery especially jungle, rivers, mountains, etc. I like both scenery (sea view and nature view). So it’s like 3 nights at mountain jungle scenery and 2 night’s sea view (total 5 nights). My question;

1.Is there any sound reasonable resort provide these 2 scenery features (romance package)? Quite keen on Alilahotels and Thesamayabali but expensive sweat.gif . Please advise.

2. Any must visit place for honeymoon couple in Bali?

3. Is there any ancient Hindu temple that can visit for tourists? Quite like the ancient architecture.

I can accept any feedback/suggestions from you guys if have better ideas for our honeymoon.

Thanks for helping.

What is your budget per night? The Samaya quite expensive but Alila Manggis are affordable. You can take a look at Kayu Manis, Komaneka or any private villa.


Add : Normally Orient Express hotel have a romance package which include both of their resort one in Ubud and another in Nusa Dua.
