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.
