Hi, hope you guys are doing safe and well.
So, my fiance and I are getting married in June and looking to plan our honeymoon well in advance. We've decided to do Bali for about 2 weeks. We wanna make this trip a mix of chilling, fun activities like diving, snorkeling, relax by the beaches, get some good pics, drinking at sunsets and beach clubs, etc. We're not people who want to party a lot, we don't mind partying but are not heavily into it. Get a few massages, explore the local food scene, explore various places, drink and have fun. We would prefer to visit the places that are not too crowded or filled with tourists. After a tonne of research, we've decided we wanna visit the following places (in no particular order):
Ubud – Mt. Batur, Monkey forest and just general chilling.
Gili Air – Chilling, relaxing and scuba diving.
Nusa Penida – Kelingking beach, diamond beach, lots of other spots to explore.
Nusa Lembongan – Good stay options plus lots to see around and chill.
Seminyak – Stay by the beach, party a lil. Good stay options.
Komodo Islands – not very crowded, silent and relaxing. (not sure if we want this in our itinerary, open to advice for or against this, heard lot of good stuff about this place, getting there seems a little bit of a hassle)
First things first, how's the weather going to be in June/July? Is it season or off season? Will things be cheaper compared to other months or more expensive?
What places would you add/remove/replace? What about places like Canggu, Kuta, Candidasa? I've heard Amed has some good dive spots? Should we include that? Or will Gili Air do?
How should we plan in terms of logistics? Land and head to Ubud, then chill there for a day or two and then head towards Nusa Islands, finish about 4-5 days there then come back to Sanur and head to Gili Air? How can I plan this to get the least travel time? Please give suggestions on this.
Please recommend places to stay at each place around $120-$150 a night.
Lastly, how many days/nights should we expend at each place?
Thanks for all your inputs.
