Take world-class food, add some serious pampering and, of course, finish with romance and you have the perfect couple’s getaway in Bali.

Try local food at Blanco par Mandif

This next level dining option in Ubud is one of the best and most intimate places to eat in Bali, not only due to its sophisticated and beautifully plated dishes but also because of the way in which chef Mandif Warokka draws on his culinary heritage to reimagine local cuisine. Book a table for two and linger over the dégustation. Dishes may include silky rock lobster with asparagus and salted egg or getuk lindri – a traditional dessert from central Java delicately balanced with raspberry, coconut, lime and cassava.

Pamper yourself at Lembah Spa

From the moment you both step into the warm bath with colourful and fragrant flower petals at this spa sanctuary, it’s impossible not to feel deeply relaxed and connected. A romantic couples treatment also includes a dreamy Balinese massage and a body scrub and mask that will leave your skin beautifully silky and soft. After your treatment, sip a fresh juice overlooking the Petanu River Gorge and the lush jungle below.

Rediscover romance with a walk on the beach

Long walks on the beach may sound like a cliché but on this coastline you won’t be able to resist flicking off your shoes and strolling hand-in-hand along the shore. If you want to go off the beaten track, head to the tranquil Bias Tugel Beach or, for a private frolic, it’s hard to beat Gunung Payung with its white sand and turquoise water.

Party on at Bali’s best bars

Let’s drink to the fact that whether you have a special occasion to celebrate or you simply want to enjoy being together, Bali has got the bar for you. From the concealed, moody Back Room at Mason where some of the world's best DJs play, to artisan negronis at The Slow or sunset cocktails at Ji Terrace by the Sea, Canggu is the spot for couples to sip in style.

Visit a temple

Make a spiritual connection at some of Bali’s amazing temples, sunset is one of the best times to check them out. Head to Uluwatu Temple for stunning architecture as the sun sinks into the glittering Indian Ocean, streaking the sky in dazzling pink, purple and orange. Or listen to the roaring waves at Tanah Lot Temple as the golden glow of the setting sun lights up the ancient shrine atop a rocky outcrop.

Trek up Mount Batur

One way to get your heart racing is with a trek up Mount Batur, one of Bali’s most spectacular sites. Setting off with your guide in darkness, only stars and torches light your way. But when dawn breaks, the active volcano is awash with morning light as you make your way to the summit. A spectacular panorama awaits at the top and your guide may even whip up a breakfast like no other – eggs cooked on lava-heated rocks.

Try something different at Totem Room Escape Challenge

For a fun bonding experience, couples can tap into their creativity to solve a series of puzzles at Totem Room Escape Challenge, a physical adventure game. You may be slaves of Egypt stuck in an ancient pharaoh’s tomb or professional thieves trying to crack into a vault containing a fortune in gold coins.
