    A Lavish Yacht, beautiful greenery and a remarkable clifftop Chapel – Bali has them all for a memorable wedding ceremony...

    Being a paradise island, Bali never runs out of romantic locations for you and your loved one to tie the knot. Here are three of the best locations for you to exchange your vows...

    Vows in Paradise



    Bliss on the Sea

    Have your sacred wedding ceremony amidst the sparkling Indian Ocean aboard the Dragoon 130 Yacht, the modified traditional Indonesian wooden cargo vessel, more locally known as phinisi. With complete facilities covering six suites, a spacious dining area, a media room and a large upper deck, this versatile yacht is perfect for that seafaring nuptial celebration.

    Comfortably accommodating up to 40 guests, Dragoon 130 Yacht is the place to be for an intimate wedding. Have your vow exchange ceremony on the deck in the morning then continue with a hearty lunch on the middle deck dining area. As it sails to the neighboring islands – or any other destination you wish – everyone can get ready in the suites on the lower deck for the wedding toast in the middle of the ocean backed with Bali’s phenomenal pink sunset sky. Alternatively, you can also book the yacht for a couple of days where you can host a party on the first day, followed by an oceanic journey for your honeymoon getaway the next day.

    When it comes to the preparation for your special day, a dedicated event planner is available to help with all of the planning and logistics, from arranging transportation from your hotel to the marina and back, catering, and entertainment, to finding you the perfect off-the-beaten path locations both around Bali’s coastlines and the surrounding smaller islands. And should you be bored on the yacht out on the sea – which is not likely to happen –,don’t worry, a tender boat is always on the ready to take you to secluded shores to enjoy intimate moments with your loved ones.

    Luxury in the Jungle

    Tying the knot in the middle of the greenery in Ubud wouldn’t get any better than at the winner of TripAdivsor’s 2017 Traveler’s Choice Awards for top hotel in Asia, Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. Situated on the rolling valleys of the world-famous Balinese village, this exquisite resort boasts a number of wedding venues within its lush compound complete with dedicated team to ensure your special day is filled with meaningful memories that will last a lifetime.

    When it comes to wedding venues, Mandapa presents an array of options. From the private yet spacious Mandapa Villa or Reserve Villa, The Lawn or Kubu Riverside – where you get to exchange vows with a countryside ambiance at an intersection of Ayung River and the forest – to the quintessentially magical Balinese experience where your eternal commitment will be witnessed at the resort’s temple.

    Mandapa also offers three wedding packages – Mandapa in Villa Wedding, Mandapa White Wedding and Mandapa Balinese Wedding – each one will definitely make your life easier as they present a plethora of features. From a one-night stay in their Reserve Suite and a 60-minute couple spa treatment to a wedding celebrant and decoration, signature Mandapa bride bouquet and groom’s boutonniere and Balinese Rindik musicians. The packages also includes welcome drinks for 30 people and other lovely additions like special wedding gifts, printed liturgy and more.

    Opulent Clifftop

    When contemporary opulence is in order for your paradise island wedding, look no further than The Bulgari Chapel. Sitting atop the limestone cliff of Bali’s southernmost point, this gem of a wedding spot should always be in your list of options. Specially designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners, Bulgari Bali’s chapel is the epitome of the brand’s magnificent marriage between distinctive contemporary Italian styles with traditional Balinese design.

    Designed to embody the duality of ritual and joy, intimacy and exposure, The Bulgari Chapel’s exterior presents a simple hand-hewn Paras Kerobokan stone wall to protect and separate the space of celebration whilst opening it up to the heart of the resort. Pass the wooden door set in the stone wall, a mesmerizing gold interior highlights the chapel’s best feature – an elevated 180-degree view of the sparkling Indian Ocean – via its floor-to-ceiling glass wall that can be opened, providing fresh oceanic breeze to the 90 guests inside the space.

    In addition to the grand yet intimate space the resort offers, Bulgari Bali also provides a dedicated bespoke wedding planner that can help manage all the planning and coordination to create your most unique and unforgettable moments. Talking about unforgettable moments, Bulgari offers a one-of-a-kind experience where the bride gets the privilege – though only for a limited time – of wearing the extraordinary one-of-a-kind Bulgari tiara. The white gold tiara is embellished with a row of seven diamond flowers, each composed of delicate petals, and at the center of each flower is a round brilliant cut diamond – truly making a paradise island princess wedding.
