Real Honeymoon: Mike and Cate in Bali

Real Honeymoon |

header

Mike and Cate wanted a honeymoon filled with adventure, relaxation, and no rain, and Bali was the perfect fit! Read about their amazing honeymoon below.

From Cate and Mike

“Katie was incredible in helping us plan our once in a lifetime honeymoon. We started the trip in Uluwatu at the Bvlgari. We were picked up in style, swept through customs, and taken to our paradise for the next few days. The hotel was i.n.c.r.e.d.i.b.le. Katie was able to get us an upgrade to an Ocean Cliff Villa. We mostly relaxed and indulged (they have the BEST Nasi Goreng for breakfast!) but really enjoyed getting away to the Uluwatu temple for the Balinese Kecak fire dance at sunset.

Our next stop was the Oberoi in Seminyak. It is a true Balinese style resort and the oldest in the area. In Seminyak we indulged in amazing restaurants and body surfed in the Indian Ocean. We took one daytrip to the Nirwana Golf Club for a breathtaking golf experience (there are 13 temples on the property with three holes running along the Indian Ocean, not to mention the rice patties… simply breathtaking). The concierge and General Manager at the Oberoi made fantastic recommendations; it didn’t hurt we got upgraded to a Luxury Villa with an ocean view and complimentary breakfast!

Our last stop was the Uma Ubud. We got another private transfer (one of the only things in addition to booking our flights and hotel we actually planned!) and spent the day stopping at batik and wood carving shops. The Uma Ubud was beautiful, very different from the first two ocean front resorts but the best place for more adventure. We got another upgrade, this time to a Pool Villa overlooking the Balinese jungle. The sleek and modern hotel was the perfect setting to relax from our days of touring the Monkey Forest and exploring Ubud. We experienced a purification ceremony at the Tirta Empul, an authentic Balinese cooking class, and ended our time in Bali with an amazing dinner at Mozaic.

Romantic Honeymoon Dinners in Bora Bora

Honeymoon Perk |

What could be better than enjoying the sunset on a private island while eating an amazing dinner for two in Bora Bora? Not much! Four Seasons Bora Bora offers a variety of private dinners that range from a complete private island experience to a catered dinner at your bungalow. Below are a few of my favourite private dinner options for newly weds in Bora Bora!

1

“Imagine the two of you, seemingly miles away on a private white sand motu dotted with palms. The most romantic and private dining experience begins with a canoe ride from the shore to our sunset motu – your private island dining location. An array or canapés are enjoyed alongside rose Champagne. Our Executive Chef will cater to your every whim, with decadent flavors such as Wagyu beef, lobster and local specialties are enjoyed, while your private server tends to your dining needs. A Polynesian fire dance concludes your special evening, before your canoe ride back to the shore.”

2

“Enjoy sipping Champagne with canapés on a private palm lined area on the beach as you marvel over the incredibly romantic sunset. You will then be escorted down the beach to your private table for two as the candlelight shimmers on the waters of the lagoon. Enhanced by local flowers, your surroundings are set for a three-course meal prepared by our Executive Chef.”

3

“Experience your romantic dinner in the comfort of your own overwater bungalow. Your terrace table will be set for two with candlelight, Polynesian flower décor, a half bottle of chilled Champagne and canapés. A three-course meal prepared by our Executive Chef will be served by our in-room dining specialist.”

Don’t all of these options sound amazing?! Email me to begin planning your Four Seasons Bora Bora honeymoon today!
