Certain places like Bali seem custom-made for great proposals, thanks to the island’s wealth of naturally romantic settings. So many locations on the island are blessed with breathtaking views and areas, and often couples can be assured of having these places entirely to themselves. This makes the weightiest challenge of how and where to ‘pop the question’. Well, if you’re looking for where to propose in Bali, have a look at this list of romantic spots. Choose carefully, and good luck!
Maya Ubud Resort & Spa is favoured by couples for its luxurious facilities in a special piece of untouched Bali, where they can experience peace and tranquility in beautiful, natural surroundings. The resort allows privacy for couples, ensuring an evening of quiet seclusion and seduction on an upper pool deck above the river valley and under the open sky. This gives the ultimate chance for you to ask that most important question in your life. Getting a “Yes” as the answer should be easy here. You can complete the seduction with “Romance at Maya” that includes a private candlelit dinner at the resort’s Maya Sari Restaurant.
For another romantic proposal that she’ll never forget, there’s a stunning private jetty at Ayana Resort & Spa. Entry to this magical location starts with a descent to sea level and a path that leads to a wooden jetty stretching 30 meters out over the water. At the end of the pier, a beautifully set up table awaits with soft music from bamboo xylophones to accompany the sound of the ocean, making for a perfectly romantic scene. Once voted as the “Most Romantic Dining Venue in Bali”, here you can also lure her with an equally beautifully presented five-course lobster dinner with marvellous dessert prior to popping the question.
Now this is a way to propose and add a touch of magic that leads to your big day: A proposal in the air, flying over your message on the ground. The Helicopter Engagement Tour by Bali Adventure Sky Tours can help you create a lifetime memory – something that will be very hard for her to forget. You can fly to your chosen beach or grass areas where the “Will You Marry Me” message will be laid out. Upon landing, there will be champagne waiting for you. Alternatively, you can land on a mountain top, a secluded lake or stream to pop the question. In case she has acrophobia, you can still be on the ground while the helicopter hovering overhead parades a big banner with your message written on it.

Pampering yourself and your lady with freshly prepared light bites along with healthy juices is not a bad idea at all. At Mandapa, you may choose between the riverside picnic, next to the Ayung River, or at the resort’s iconic Lumbung (rice barn) with stunning views of the resort’s rice terrace. The picnic alone is a romantic affair in itself, especially amidst the manicured natural environment that surrounds Mandapa.
Now, with the romantic picnic and an equally romantic surrounding, the chance for her to say “yes” is quite big. Of course, Mandapa can always arrange an offsite picnic; just let them know, and you’ll receive recommendations of the best picnic spots around Ubud.

To make things more special, Awarta also offers a private performance of the charming ‘Oleg Tambulilingan’ dance, also known as the dance of love.
