A small tropical paradise where the waves are unending, the views are breathtaking and the ambiance heartwarming – there’s no better place in the world to express your love. And whether you’re lit by the romantic moonlight or bathed in the lively sunlight, there’s no other answer than “Yes”. Here are the most romantic spots to propose in Bali
Kupu Kupu Barong
Kupu Kupu Barong
There’s something symbolic about proposing in the Birdnest, a romantic restaurant at Kupu Kupu Barong Villas. It’s as if you’re asking your loved one not just to spend your lives together, but also to build a family together and make a house your home. Tucked inside the lush greenery of the Ayung River Valley, getting cozy before popping the question won’t be hard; it’s like nature is conspiring to let you lovebirds have the best night ever. Providing the perfect view and ambiance doesn’t mean Kupu Kupu Barong discounts their meal preparation, as the food also tastes wonderful, completing the perfect night you will want to remember forever.

Samabe’s Private Cave Dining
At Samabe, you can start with a casual stroll down the stairs or a drive in a Jeep to the stunning beach where you can surprise your loved one with a private dining table all set up with candles and meals deep inside a cave. While the cave feels hidden and protected from the outside world, the wonderful beach view is still visible. Enjoy the stunning and romantic view of the sunset while the butler serves delicious courses of your choosing. As the sun sets, it’s time for you to ask your loved one to settle down with you as well. Afterward, you can celebrate together with a glass (or two) of champagne.

If you’ve always been an adventurous couple, Bali offers a special opportunity to shout your love from the mountaintop. Mount Agung is not only a wonderful place to see the whole island, but it’s also a sacred place for the Balinese. Embark on the journey together like it’s life, taking care of each other all the way up. Set up a tent for the night in one of the mountain’s campsites 1,700 meters (5,577 feet) above the sea level, giving you an unrestricted view of nature. Your loved one most likely won’t suspect that you have an engagement ring with you, so it shouldn’t be hard to add an element of surprise as you get down on one knee under the stars or at sunrise on the mountain’s peak.

AYANA’s Kisik Jetty
Away from the busy and crowded world is your own sublime heaven, on a private wooden pier extending toward the calm ocean. At the end of your relaxing stroll down the dock awaits a table all set up, accompanied by soft romantic instrumental sounds that accentuate the music from the ocean and its breeze. And there you will enjoy the best meal and beverage for two while beholding the last rays of the sun, and nothing else could make that evening better but a romantic, sincere proposal. Take your time to enjoy each other’s company as AYANA’s Kisik Jetty is only available for one couple each day.

Maya Ubud Resort & Spa may be one of the best wedding or honeymoon destinations, but romance starts way before that, right? Just being in the lavish but natural place already makes your proposal quite exceptional and unforgettable. Couples love the resort’s strategic location, tucked in a lush landscape with private pools and a romantic deck above the river and under the promising sky. The resort has a special package to help you pursue your romantic goals, complete with a perfectly arranged private candlelit dinner at its most romantic spot.

On Air Bali’s Flying Helicopter
There’s nothing that says, “My love for you exceeds everything” than a proposal in a flying helicopter. As the vehicle soars up to the sky, be ready to ask the most important question of your life. You decide whether you want your proposal to be spoken or written, as Air Bali can arrange giant letters on the ground that will achieve the same or even better response from your loved one. Afterward, they organize a sensational trip to Bali’s untouched places, starting from the Benoa Heliport toward the stunning Taman Bhagawan, where you can enjoy the exclusive and unrestricted view of Bali’s best coastlines from above.

Padang Padang Beach
The romantic ambiance on Padang Padang Beach comes partly from its own natural charm and partly from its association with the movie Eat Pray Love. The movie starring Julia Roberts depicted the beach’s beauty perfectly, with the brilliant blue-greenish water and gracious rocky landscape scattered around the coastline. The beach gets crowded during the afternoon, but if you come early in the morning, the place is almost exclusively yours.
