Destination Wedding in Bali: Ubud or Nusa Dua?

In recent years, the Indonesian island of Bali has become a growing paradisiacal hotspot for travellers, couples and newlyweds on their honeymoon. Everyone seems to be heading there to explore its rainforests, rice paddies, volcanic mountains, coral reefs and stunning beaches. So if you’re planning on getting married there, it’s no surprise! 

However, when planning a destination wedding, it’s often hard to choose the exact location of the event, especially if you’ve never been to the country before. Well, at Zankyou we’ve got you covered. In this article we’ll discuss the mystical uplands of Ubud and the beachy resort district of Nusa Dua, comparing the luxury Kayumanis hotels in each location. One amazing hotel, in two distinctly different parts of the island… which one will you choose?

Ubud

Ubud is perhaps one of the most well-known parts of Bali, popular with travellers who seek authentic cultural experiences and a lush tropical atmosphere. Located in the heart of the island, just one hour from the airport, Ubud is a centre for artisanal crafts and traditional dance, and boasts beautiful holy sites.

If you’re looking to get married surrounded by jungle, then Ubud is for you. Here, Kayumanis Private Villa & Spa is a charming and luxury setting for your rainforest wedding. You’ll be able to choose your romantic backdrop with a variety of options for the all-important ceremony.

Their latest option is a glass bottom stage that feels like it’s floating on water: walk along a glass aisle surrounded by exotic greenery, candles and fragrant flower petals. You’ll say your vows under an exquisite, handmade arch, and will never forget the spectacular scenery that surrounds you.

The other option that Kayumanis offer in their Ubud retreat is a poolside celebration, where your event will run flawlessly under a lovely bamboo roof. Splashes of colour decoration and hanging lanterns will create a warm atmosphere against the deep greens of the jungle, and you will have the option of having a delicious dessert table set up – love is sweet!

 When it comes to the food here, you can expect authentic Thai cuisine with a modern twist, with thanks to Kayumanis’ Ubud restaurant, Dining Corner.

Using the freshest possible ingredients, all sourced locally, Dining Corner delights every guest with extraordinary flavours. This stylish restaurant, overlooking the river valley and surrounding woodland, is open daily, so you can indulge before and after the special day, too.

Nusa Dua

If you’re not tempted by a romantic wedding in the jungle, then how about on the beach? Feel the sea breeze and the sun-kissing rays with a stunning wedding in Kayumanis Nusa Dua.

Kayumanis Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua, unlike the busy and cultural jungle town of Ubud, is an exclusive area of luxury resorts situated right on the beach. The area was built in the 1970s to rival international beach resorts worldwide, and it certainly does. A pristine location with everything on your doorstep, away from the hustle and bustle of the island, its relaxing, romantic, and the perfect place to say your vows.

The team at Kayumanis Nusa Dua will handle all the fine details, and their professionalism will have you celebrating worry-free under the twinkly stars or in their villa or restaurant.

As an alternative to an alfresco sunset for your ceremony and celebration setting, you could opt for their Green Patio as a venue. It’s a magical garden environment, shaded from the beach yet still warmed by the tropical sun, intimate and exclusive for a small vow ceremony.

Kayumanis Nusa Dua also have mouthwatering catering options for the big day. Their restaurant, Piasan, mainly specialises in gourmet Italian cuisine, with pizza, pasta, fresh seafood and prime cuts of meat. But it doesn’t stop there, the chefs at Piasan will create your wedding menu according to your personal tastes as a couple, so you will be spoilt for choice when selecting from their Indonesian, Asian or Western specialties.

So now the decision is up to you. Would you love your Balinese wedding to be high in the jungle, within the bustling culture of Ubud? Or would you prefer an exclusive beach wedding in one of the world’s most beautiful resort complounds? Perhaps, it’s the food that makes you tick, and your drawn either to the tantalising Thai dishes on the Dining Corner’s menu in Ubud, or the hearty yet modern Italian cuisine that makes Piasan in Nusa Dua so popular?

It’s a difficult decision – we know. But at least there’s no doubt that, with whichever Kayumanis retreat you choose, you’ll have the most magical wedding day.
