7. Escape to (another) paradise
Bali is filled with romantic experiences, but nuthin’ lights that fire quite like a weekend getaway. Luckily, Bali is just a hop, skip and a short boat ride away from a handful of paradisal islands, from Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, to the Gili Islands on neighbouring Lombok.
8. Brunch with bae, Bali-style
They say that food is the way to one’s heart, so why not start the romance early with a luxurious brunch spread? From fine-dining brunches with Champagne and mimosas, to laid-back brunches by the beach, Bali’s best cafes and restaurants cater to all kinds of brunch dates. And if you’re not in the mood to leave your love nest? Most of Bali’s five-star hotels and resorts offer romantic floating breakfasts and weekend brunches, so be sure to check there first!
9. Dress to impress
As the saying goes, “love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind” – but if you ask us, a fabulous frock or smart suit helps move things along in the seduction department. So this V-Day, treat bae to a nifty new outfit to paint the town crimson-red. Need some shopping inspo? Check out our guides to Seminyak’s swanky stores and Canggu’s boho boutiques.
10. Go glamping and retreat to your own romantic bubble
If a blissful day out in nature is your kinda romance, then take your Valentine for a night of glamping. Glamping is one of the most popular things to do in Bali, and lucky for you, there are countless outdoorsy hideaways all over the island. Think beachside glamping beside quiet beaches, and breezy jungle glamp-sites surrounded by chirping birds and fresh air. Whichever you choose, you’ll feel like you’re in a world of your own…
