A dating app is useless if your dating game is weak. Impress your date with this guide to the most romantic places that only existed in your wildest dreams.
WARNING: The following article contains some terribly romantic gestures and venues, so don’t venture further unless you are absolutely ready for a passionate evening. This one’s for the Bali lovebirds. BYO diamond ring!
‘Cause I’m Going to… Marigold Fields
Strawberry fields are so yesterday. This stunning landscape with marigolds are perfect for your wedding pictures or selfies. Located at Desa Belok, it can be found along the roadside between Kintamani and Bedugal. You can frolic in the flora while delighting in the fact that this flower is significant to Balinese culture.
Happy Bellies at Sunset
After your romantic stroll on the beach with your shoes off, you can rest over a scrumptious spread of seafood with a magnificent view. You can do this easily in Jimbaran, which is renowned for its quality catch delivered fresh from the fisherman and its beautiful sunsets.
Power of Love
If you want a secluded affair outside the bedroom, this might be it. With the power of love package, you will dine at a private beach at Samabe Resort, and if that’s not enough isolation for you, don’t worry, you two will be alone in a cave. This candlelight dinner will be unforgettable as you won’t be disturbed by anything other than the sound of waves, and occasionally your butler, of course.

One candle? How about a 100?
If you are a romantic that prefers 99 red roses to one, you will want to have a hundred candles for your candle-lit dinner. This meal at Swept Away Restaurant at The Samaya Ubud only offers one table a night for this bright experience. You will be surrounded by not just candles, but the river and a delectable 6-course dinner with your choice of wine.
I Love it When We are Cruisin’ Together
You can sing this romantic song (or get the band on board to sing it) when you bring your bae to dine on a ship. Bali Hai offers sunset dinner cruises onboard their luxury catamaran that sails around the Benoa Harbour in South Bali. Don’t forget to pose for a Titanic moment while you are onboard for the complete classic experience.

Just a Food Basket and a Blanket
Forget chalking up a bill for a meal. A basket of goodies and a mat are all you’ll have to bring to the hillside to enjoy a simple but romantic experience. Don’t forget your darling of course. One favourite place of ours is at Bukit Asah in Karangasem. The slanted slopes allow you to have a panoramic view over the Indian Ocean and the surrounding little islets.
