Bali’s best date nights

Bali may be the island of the gods, but it’s also the island of many weddings, honeymoons and even first dates. With this in mind, here are some of Bali’s best date night itineraries to scope out pre-Valentines Day.

Da Maria Bali Date night

La Baracca + Da Maria

Two Italian sisters, right across from each other on Petitenget. Start with dinner at La Baracca: think cosy Italian, flattering lighting, and amazing pizza and pasta. Follow up with a night cap wine (or two) across the road at the recently opened Da Maria (especially fun for a later night session on Fridays with their in-house DJ).

Ku De Ta + Sea Circus

Start the evening with a session at Bali’s Oberoi institution Ku De Ta which serves up some of the island’s best cocktails and sunset beats. Once the sun has set, wander down the road to enjoy the upbeat atmosphere and tasty fresh food and margaritas at Sea Circus.

the slow canggu bali date night

The Lawn + The Slow

The Lawn has emerged from a recent upgrade to be one of Canggu’s best sunset spots. Make sure to reserve a blanket on the namesake lawn since the place fills up. Enjoy some Aperol Spritzes then head to the new nearby and oh-so-stylish hotel and restaurant The Slow for dinner.

movida bali date night

Potato Head + Movida

The proximity of these two makes this combo a no brainer. Start with sunset at one of Bali’s most popular beach clubs; Potato Head’s creative cocktails (think: smoking volcano) will help any conversation-starting awkwardness. Follow up by crossing the road to Movida, located in the chic Katamama hotel for a meal of authentic Spanish tapas (with a local ingredients twist) accompanied by what is possibly the island’s best sangria.

707 beachbar bali date

707 Beach Bar + Warung Sobat

A more cheap and cheerful date option. Begin with sunset on a beanbag at 707, watching the dogs and people come and go. Then wander up Batu Belig to expat-favourite Warung Sobat for some Indonesian fare.
