A Romantic Getaway
- Sun Salutation.
Start your morning off with one of the daily yoga classes offered to guests at The Ritz-Carlton, Bali. Yoga and meditation are important components to the lifestyle of Bali, and you’ll connect to the omnipresence of ceremony in the culture as you work through your own yoga practice.
- Pura Geger.
This quiet and ancient temple is only open to worshippers, but the beautiful carved architecture of the building exteriors and its prominent place on the headland above the white sands of Geger Beach still make it worth a visit.
- Water Blow.
Imagine being surrounded by water in a 240-degree view as it rushes up from the ocean, breaking over the tops of cliffs. The dramatic views (and splashing) of the ocean waves up to Water Blow make this an adventurous stop, especially for those bringing along a waterproof camera to capture the spectacular crashing of the waves.
- Eat, Drink, Rest.
Sea Circus brings a dash of wit and a splash of high style to Seminyak, the chic Southern city. Order multiple small plates to share, go healthy with a bowl or dig into the options on the taco bar menu.
- Shopping in Seminyak.
Seminyak has a mix of designer boutiques and local artisanal shops, so you can choose the perfect mementos from the trip. Get richly colored garments at Paul Ropp, on-trend accessories at Le Petit Cartel or delicate lace from Uluwatu. If you’re looking for something more substantial to remember the trip by, stop into John Hardy, who produces his fine jewelry line near Ubud.
- Romantic Dinner.
Watch the sun set over the open lounge at Métis, as you sip cocktails before settling into a multi-course dinner. For a decadently delicious dinner, order from the foie gras menu, including specialties like the Trilogy of Foie Gras.
- Take a Swim.
The pool at The Ritz-Carlton, Bali faces the ocean, so you can watch the sun rise over the deep turquoise water while you splash around. Start your morning with tranquil laps or just soaking in the water, and the atmosphere, together.
- Uluwatu Temple.
Pura Luhur Uluwatu is perched high above the sea on a 250-foot cliff. Considered to be one of six temples that make up Bali’s spiritual pillars, this temple is equally renowned for its spectacular view as it is for its sacred qualities. Stay at the temple later in the day and watch the sun set over the ocean behind, or visit midday for the cooling breezes that come off the water through the temple complex. Enter through a small forest filled with hundreds of monkeys, which are believed to be the protectors of the temple itself.
- Surf Spot.
Green Bowl beach is notable for the cliffs protecting the secluded beach and the quality of the waves, attracting a loyal surfer community. If you don’t want to do the 300-plus steps down to the beach (and back up), settle in at a warun at the top for a cool drink and gorgeous views.
- Dinner on the Sand.
Dinner for two in a secluded setting by the beach — what could be more romantic? With dedicated service, a bouquet of red roses and a bottle of wine from The Ritz-Carlton, Bali cellar, the resort sets up a perfect evening for you, complete with a specially designed menu. Choose from delicacies like Wagyu steak, slow-cooked salmon or lobster linguine along with a champagne toast to your wonderful weekend in Bali.
