The Best Destination For A Wedding & Honeymoon – Ubud, Bali!

Hello! I’m Kelli and I run marketing for Merrime Bride & Soirée! I just recently took a vacation to Bali and had an INCREDIBLE time visiting 6 cities there in 14 days! There was one city, however, that could not have been more wedding and honeymoon worthy and I wanted to share everything about it with you…

Welcome to Ubud, Bali – only an hour north of their airport and home to one of Bali’s royal families known for its beautiful landscape and commitment to local artists. You may recognize Ubud when you see the rice fields that are often used to promote Bali as a ideal vacation destination but there is so much more that we experienced!

Ubud was the 3rd destination of our trip and although we are not engaged or married, when we experienced this city we understood why so many of our friends had come here for their ceremonies or honeymoons.

We each had our own motorbike to travel from city to city and upon entering Ubud we passed right by the Monkey Forest Sanctuary on the way to check in to our hotel. We didn’t expect that there would literally be monkeys on the streets as we drove through. What a surprise that was!

Blue Karma Resort – Overall Features

There are so many great things to say about Blue Karma Resort – Ubud. When we arrived we were greeted by all the staff who asked us where we were from, if we’d been to Bali before and expressed their joy that we were going to experience Ubud with them. As we waited for them to scan our passports (this is customary in foreign countries) we took a look around.

One of the most unique things about tropical locations is the openness – air conditioning is not usually needed and it gives the feeling of being outdoors at all times. There are no doorways to pass through, in fact most buildings don’t even have walls, they are simply held up by beams. This was the view directly behind the entrance building as we walked in.

The color scheme of this resort was gorgeous. Bright purple flowers, cobalt towels, blue-green water, coral umbrellas and of course the lime greens and evergreens that highlight the landscape. You’ll notice in the background of this photo is a small hut in the middle of the rice field used for packaging the rice.

Lucky for us, they provided large floaties in their infinity pool, you’ll notice I’m riding one as I took this video to give you a better view of what we could see.

After we checked in I also recorded a video for you all to see what our room looked like. This is a standard room – they had no idea I’d be writing a blog about them so we experienced it just as any walk-in would and we didn’t expect it to be so amazing.

They had a restaurant on-site and the ambience + food were both amazing. Check out the beautiful colors and the Nasi Goreng we ordered (every single day). Nasi Goreng translates to “fried rice” and is often accompanied with an egg and krupuks – traditional indonesian crackers.

The breakfast was included in the cost of our room and was accompanied by a buffet bar with homemade butter, jam and honey from local bee’s. We also had tea, coffee, fresh juices and filtered water.
