If you have always dreamed of a destination wedding, look no further than Bali, the Island of the Gods. Picture exchanging vows with your special someone on a clifftop, against the backdrop of the shimmering sea, with the sound of the surf crashing below. Or go barefoot bohemian and declare your love on the beach, with the sand between your toes and the setting sun sending flames across the sky. Or perhaps enveloped by the seclusion of a rural oasis, on the rim of a mountain ravine, surrounded by rice terraces. Sounds unbelievable that so many options could exist on one island, doesn’t it?
Visualise the details – delicately woven palm frond decorations and penjor flags framing the ceremonial space; three-tiered temple parasols and tropical blooms; flaming bamboo torches and candles amidst a garden of colossal foliage; the hypnotic sound of Gamelan music; a lattice of party lights strung like pearls illuminating the darkening sky. And amid that enchanting setting, imagine being in the arms of your partner, dancing together for the first time as husband and wife.
If you want a magical Balinese wedding, the first step is to pick the ideal villa as the venue. Once you have your perfect elite haven, the rest is easy from thereon. Here’s a glimpse of some of our favourite wedding villas in Bali. Which one would you pick for your special day?
Noku Beach House
Noku Beach House is considered to be the glamorous queen of Seminyak’s beachfront. Its chic all-white aura and lavish living spaces make it a favourite with youngsters, and those with a taste for the finer things in life. If you have an eye for design, you will absolutely love the avant-garde art pieces that dot this celebrity-style villa.
Made for the stylish set favouring outdoor living, Noku has a cosy entertaining bale, a great spot for sunset-watching, as well as decks and lawned gardens stretching alongside the sparkling 27-metre pool. Its fabulous beachfront location makes for an idyllic wedding venue, with rooftop gardens overlooking the ocean and covered terraces offering spaces for smaller set-ups.
The lush lawns are large enough to accommodate 150 people for a formal wedding breakfast, lunch or dinner.
A beautiful wedding ceremony can be held at the beachfront deck, right in front of the ocean, whilst the dinner reception can be set up around the pool if there are less than 50 guests. For larger numbers, the villa’s manicured lawns are available, with a separate upper deck for bands and DJ setups. It’s a sensational space, overlooking the vast ocean. Dance the night away on the beachfront deck or enjoy elegant sunset cocktails with the only sound countering the tinkle of glasses, is that of the waves rolling onto the shore.
If you want to say your vows celebrity-style, it doesn’t get classier than Noku Beach House.
A Noku Bride’s testimonial:
Thank you for hosting our wedding party! It was an awesome stay and we will definitely be back. Thanks for taking care of our family and guests.

Host your intimate wedding party at Taman Ahimsa, a special beachside designer villa. Your wedding will be the talk of the town, given the villa’s unique architecture. A beguiling and harmonious space, the villa’s buildings are designed to resemble boat hulls and seashells, while Indonesian artefacts and ornate handmade fabrics lend character to its interiors. Materials like thatch, coconut husks, bamboo, rattan and recycled wood enhance the nature-inspired look.
Taman Ahimsa means ‘Garden of Peace’ – a wonderfully apt description. This seven-bedroom beachfront retreat offers an enchanting setting for a wedding celebration, under swaying coconut palms and surrounded by nature. Villa Taman Ahimsa can accommodate up to 100 guests standing or 80 guests sitting. Gardens tumble onto the beach, making Taman Ahimsa the perfect location for those seeking an event venue which captures the tropical essence of this beautiful island.

Villa Anucara promises comfort and fabulous ocean views. With chic, white-walled, contemporary grandeur, this five-bedroom villa is located in the seaside village of Cemagi in south-west Bali, a five-minute stroll from the beach and the remarkable sea temple of Pura Gede Luhur Batungaus.
The villa features a sunken poolside lounge, a rooftop terrace, a 35-metre swimming pool, secluded bedroom pavilions and mesmerising tropical landscaped gardens. The grand entrance, large garden and terraces combine to make Villa Anucara an ideal tropical setting for weddings and parties.
In the words of an Anucara Bride:
We cannot thank everyone at Villa Anucara enough for our incredible stay. We had our wedding here on 4th May and it was an absolute dream. From the beautiful villa to the amazing staff, everything was just perfect. We are already thinking about our next stay here and cannot wait to return. The staff are professional, lovely and friendly, and the food is beyond delicious. The villa location really speaks for itself. Thank you from the bottom of our very full and grateful hearts.

Pandawa Cliff Estate
With its dramatic clifftop setting overlooking the Indian Ocean, it is no wonder that Pandawa Cliff Estate is one of the most sought after wedding venues in Bali, hosting up to 100 weddings each year. Wide lawns, large decked garden areas and superb living spaces characterise the four interconnected villas set within this exclusive estate.
When all four villas are rented together, the estate offers a total of 21 double bedrooms and can accommodate up to 42 adult guests, with the option of extra beds for children. This makes Pandawa particularly attractive to those wishing to provide convenient ‘on-site’ accommodation for guests attending their wedding or special event. The accommodation options also make it a favourite with corporates for meets and retreats.
Each villa in the estate is steeped in luxury. The Pala has an amphitheatre where guests can be entertained with a dance or musical performance, and its garden links through to those of Villa Rose and Markisa – allowing separate areas for cocktails, dining and dancing for up to 400 guests. Villa Markisa’s cliff-edge master bedroom featuring a private pool is a dream bridal suite, and its ocean view garden is the perfect setting for sunset nuptials. The four villas also share a sports centre with a full-size tennis court, squash court, gym and spa.
Plan your upcoming wedding at Pandawa Cliff Estate and get 50% off on event fee, for stays between 1st Nov to 15th March every year, if booking all four villas together.
For more details, get in touch with our Head of Events Rara Suprastini at email@example.com who will not only help you pick your dream villa, but will also be happy to connect you with the best wedding organisers in Bali. All you’ll need to do is to find the perfect dress and look forward to the day you start this journey with your special someone.
