Nothing says dreamy island wedding quite like a private luxury villa with a breathtaking sunset backdrop, so we’ve combed Bali’s sunset coast to find 6 of the very best.
We have to admit, we’re a little obsessed with Bali’s stunning collection of beachfront wedding villas. Throw in a sensational sunset backdrop with brilliant streaks of oranges, pinks and purples above a glittering horizon, and you’ve pretty much found our idea of nuptial heaven. And though Bali is brimming with countless six-star villas that’ll make both bride and groom swoon, finding this winning combination is harder than you might expect…
So we’ve searched the length of Bali’s sunset coast [from the bottom of the Bukit peninsula all the way up to Tanah Lot temple] for the most outstanding beachfront villas ideal for weddings, complete with those all-important sunset-meets-sea views. And to save you the hassle of finding the best deals, they’re all available for direct bookings exclusively via Elite Havens’ luxury villa rentals. You’re welcome!
Villa Bayuh Sabbha – The Bukit, Bali
Guest Capacity: 150 seated, 175 standing
Situated on the Bukit Peninsula, fifty metres above sea level on the cliffs overhanging Bingin Beach, Villa Bayuh Sabbha commands heart-stopping panoramas of the ocean and southern regions of Bali. Unsurprisingly so, this expansive castle in the sky has become an immensely popular wedding and events venue that we simply LOVE.
The gorgeous Sunset Bale is perfect for ceremonies and can later be transformed into a cocktail bar for a post “I do” evening soiree, whilst the manicured lawns and paved area surrounding the swimming pools make for the perfect dance floor to really get the celebrations started.
Villa Atas Ombak – Seminyak, Bali
Guest Capacity: 150 seated, 200 standing
There are no other beachfront estates quite like Villa Atas Ombak in Seminyak. This wow-factor residence perfectly captures the essence of traditional and tropical Bali living, complete with five bedroom suites and generous living spaces below three alang-alang thatched pavilions, all of which boast magnificent ocean vistas. After all, its name translates to “on top of the waves”, and it delivers exactly that.
In the centre of the grounds, the beachfront pavilion is a fabulous entertaining spot and can be doubled up as a dance floor, or, during the dry season [from April to September] add to your invitees list and host a larger al-fresco wedding beneath the sunset and stars.
Arnalaya Beach House – Canggu, Bali
Guest Capacity: 100 seated, 150 standing
On Bali’s sunset coast in hip and happening Canggu, Arnalaya Beach House makes for a spectacular wedding venue with 35 dazzling metres of ocean frontage. With sunset-facing terraces, a romantic ocean-front bale, and a pathway of candles cascading through the immaculate lawns dotted with flower petals – it’s a favourite wedding venue for breathtaking “I Do’s”.
Though its sprawling size makes it ideal for an all-out affair, a smaller soiree can be held on the villa’s sunset deck as a stunning cocktail venue, while the back courtyard can host an intimate dinner occasion.
Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa – Pererenan, Canggu, Bali
Guest Capacity: 150 seated, 200 cocktail (Main House and Guest House)
A rare find along Bali’s south-west coast and just 10km from Seminyak, the unique and fabulously flash Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa comprises a four-bedroom Main House and a charming two-bedroom Guest House, as well as 100 metres of private beach frontage amidst lush tropical landscapes that border Canggu’s verdant rice fields – it’s a picture-perfect paradise!
With such impressive scenery, the villa provides an ideal setting for an out-of-this-world wedding, party or any other special event with its sweeping lawns, glorious 18-metre infinity edge pool, open-sided living and dining pavilion, purpose-built coconut grove event space and balé, and its idyllic beachside location. Heaven!
Seseh Beach Villas – Seseh, Bali
Guest Capacity: 70 seated, 100 standing (if front villa only)
Beautiful by day and spectacular by sunset, Seseh Beach Villas see traditional Balinese design melting into modern luxury, topped off with glittering ocean views. For a larger wedding, hold your ceremony on Seseh II and thereafter move to the front villa for easy, breezy sunset cocktails and a glamorous dinner reception.
For the after party, the villa can cater to almost every request. A custom built stage for dancing on top of the pool? No problem. Floating bamboo or foam structures for candles and flowers? You bet! This villa is guaranteed to make your wedding a roaring success.
Villa Kailasha – Tabanan, Bali
Guest Capacity: 100 seated, 150 standing
Villa Kailasha is situated a mere three-minute-stroll from Kelating Beach with its sparkling black sands, sweeping coastline views and charming Balinese neighbourhood that’s bordered by rice fields for as far as the eye can see. What’s more, the extensive and stunningly manicured lawns and garden, combined with the spacious living pavilion, al fresco terrace, and glorious views of the sea and dramatic black-sand beach, lend Villa Kailasha a fabulous tropical setting for romantic weddings and other special celebrations – and we can’t get enough!
With so much love in the air, we’re a little head over heels for these stunning venues, but if sunsets aren’t your thing, there’s plenty more tropical wedding villas from Elite Havens that’ll make you weak at the knees. Check them all out HERE!
