THE Balinese island of Nusa Dua is the very definition of barefoot luxury – five-star resorts line the stunning coast leading up to pearl-white sand, the lapping waters are clear and a shimmery blue, and well-heeled tourists saunter about in breezy dresses and sun hats.
It’s only apt that INAYA Putri Bali – overlooking the Indian Ocean – is located here among some of the island’s most lavish beach resorts. Conveniently, it’s only 12km from the Ngurah Rai International Airport and a mere three-minute drive to Bali Collection, a high-end shopping, dining, and entertainment outlet.
As much as Bali is a sometimes clichéd option for honeymooners, INAYA Putri Bali is exactly the kind of place you and your partner can truly feel like the only ones on the island. If you’re looking for some quality one-on-one time without the possibility of interruption by rowdy tourists, this is it.
It helps that the property is sprawling and includes 9.1 hectares of lush gardens, the more the reason to find a private nook without being reminded of other guests. On top of that, the resort’s central theme adopts the island’s rich history and mythology woven with aesthetic elements of traditional Balinese villages. Talk about mystery and charm to greet your honeymoon.
All 457 rooms have a running theme of Balinese elements but vary in local artistry. For couples, the Deluxe Pool Access rooms lead straight to the waters of the communal lagoon pool so you and your partner don’t need to step out of the room. This means pool time can be sanctioned right after breakfast or in the wee hours of the night.
Other lavish detailing include plush king-sized bedding, a marble bathroom with separate deep-soaking tub and rain shower, a private balcony, a view of the manicured tropical garden, a daily refill of the mini bar, an in-room Coffesso coffee machines.
Continue the parade of romance at Homaya Restaurant, which celebrates the archipelago’s high-quality agriculture and Indonesia’s rich culinary heritage. Feast on regional favorites such as opor ayam, bebek betutu, kaki kambing, and of course, a range of tongue-tickling sambals.
Weddings can be a tiring affair for the bride and groom but a visit to the INAYA Dewi Spa will sort out those tired limbs. Natural sunlight, soothing music, a welcome drink, a warm lemongrass-scented towel, and a complimentary footbath ritual help to set the mood before you submit to the experienced hands of the spa staff.
The signature Dewi Journey Package is inspired by the seven Hindu goddesses of Bali’s heritage and includes an energizing body massage followed by a luxurious facial treatment. After the session, feel the palpable plumpness on your face and the tightness in your joints loosen up.
INAYA is offering a special package for newlyweds booked into the property. Couples can choose between a two-night stay at the Deluxe Pool Access and the Ocean View Suite, and as a bonus, they’ll be treated to special arrival amenities, including heart-shaped flower petals and a fruit basket, a candlelight dinner, and a 60-minute Balinese couples massage.
