An Island Romance: The Best Places to Say “I Love You” on Nusa Lembongan

Love never goes out of fashion so we’re making it easy to turn up the wow factor in your love life. Here is our dreamy guide to the most romantic things to do on Nusa Lembongan for honeymooners, couples getaways, anniversary celebrations, marriage proposals or vow renewals.

  1. Arrive in Style

Instead of jumping on a boat to get to Lembongan, why not treat your lover to a breathtaking helicopter ride to the island. Only 20 minutes flight from Bali, you’ll get a private birdseye view of THE most stunning part of Indonesia (yes, we might be a touch biased), and arrive in absolute style. Air Bali organises daily flights.

  1. Sunset Sailing

Lean back, take a sip of champagne and let the warm ocean breeze gently ruffle your hair. We think a sunset cruise on your own private yacht would be nothing short of heaven!  Watch the sun slip behind the horizon while you enjoy that magical time of day with your lover. Pure Lembongan bliss! There are a number of local businesses that can arrange this for you including Waka Sailing or Alexa Private Cruises.

  1. Romantic dinner at one of Lembongan’s best restaurants

Stumbling across a fine dining restaurant on a tropical island would normally be pretty difficult however Indiana Kenanga on the island’s main beach, ticks all the boxes. Stunning French-inspired cuisine served in a relaxed setting with exceptional service is what this little gem has become famous for. If you’re keen to make a night of it, we recommend kicking off your evening with a drink at Lembongan’s very own speakeasy, The Howff.

  1. Couples Massage

A sensual massage is sure to set the mood. Visit one of the Island’s day spas, then float back to the 353 Degrees North villa rooftop deck and enjoy a fresh juice or cocktail (or two). Then see where the mood takes you!

  1. A Romantic Picnic

Take full advantage of the balmy weather, spectacular sunsets and secluded beaches on Nusa Lembongan by organising a picnic for you and your better half. The wonderful staff at 353 Degrees North are always on hand to help you prepare a lover’s feast.

  1. Create a Treasured Memento

Since you’re likely to stay a few days in Bali before or after your visit to Lembongan, why not surprise the most important person in your life with a trip to the silversmith region of Ubud to design some beautiful couple rings together. If you’re already married, this is the perfect way to celebrate an anniversary or renew your vows. Enjoy a class together or ask the jeweller to create a custom design for you and leave with a memento that will last forever. Find out more at Chez Monique or John Hardy Silver Making.

  1. Private, romantic dinner at our villa

What could possibly be more romantic than a three-course candlelit dinner for two on our rooftop deck? Give up? Easy….there isn’t anything!! Mention at the time of booking or speak to the villa manager and we’ll set the wheels in motion. You can get a chef in to cook or use the villa mobile to order take-out from one of the restaurants that deliver.  Sunset, tropical island, great food, good wine, a sprinkling of stars and your beloved. What more could you ask for?
