If you are coming to the islands of love on a romantic jaunt – whether for a honeymoon, the renewal of your vows or just quality time with your loved one – we have the perfect romantic destinations. Both stunning in their own rights, The Oberoi, Bali and The Oberoi, Lombok offer luxurious stays for couples looking to up the love-ante in Bali.
The Oberoi, Bali, is known for its glamorous yet authentic Balinese style. The beautiful island charm can be seen throughout the whole resort, through the trees, various temples and holy lotus pond that all sit within the expansive grounds, which have been designed to recreate that of a Balinese village (complete with natural stone amphitheatre for cultural performances for guests). Besides being located on one of the holiest beaches on Bali’s west coast, the resort is also set within acres of lush tropical gardens, creating that oh-so-perfect ambience for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Our tip? Organise a candlelit dinner on the beach, complete with fine wine and the sounds of authentic Balinese instruments, such as the Rindik or Gender.
Its sister hotel, The Oberoi, Lombok, is located in a secluded location on the enchanting Medana Bay, on the neighbouring island of Lombok. This resort is the perfect hideaway, where couples seeking some R&R can enjoy exclusive white sand beach, turquoise ocean access, and stunning views of Bali’s volcano Mount Agung and the Gili Islands. Here’s your chance to go on an underwater adventure with your loved one and explore the best of Indonesia’s coral reefs!
So we have surely sold you on why you absolutely need to experience The Oberoi way of life, and if that wasn’t enough, just wait until you hear about their special romantic packages. Our tip would be to combine the two resorts with a stay at both the Bali and Lombok locations, especially as you get an inter-island complimentary transfer (by air or sea) when you book (with a minimum of 6 nights stay).

This is the perfect place to renew your marriage vows – what could be more romantic than doing so in a true Balinese Hindu ceremony?

To impress your love, why not organise the perfect sunset dinner on the private beach of The Oberoi, Lombok?
