Tying The Knot

February 1, 2017 Life on the Island

There is no doubt that Bali is a very romantic destination; hundreds, if not thousands, from around the world have chosen Bali for their wedding ceremony and celebration of love. The paradise island with its lovely beaches, swaying palms, rice terraces, temples, warmth, welcoming people and highly spiritual atmosphere has indeed evoked a powerful ambiance of romance.

So when it comes to wedding venues, the Island of the Gods doesn’t disappoint. From chapels to beachfront lawns, your wedding venues are inspired by the most enchanting landscapes in Bali; set amidst breathtaking southern clifftops, exquisitely and naturally detailed with unobstructed views of the breathtaking central hills, or with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean as the backdrop.



An exciting wedding venue perched 35 meters above the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean at AYANA Resort and Spa Bali, with endless views melting into the horizon, SKY is designed to accommodate intimate occasions in complete privacy, as well as large events of up to 1,000 guests seated or 2,000 cocktail-style. The dramatic open-air design features ceremonial steps and multi-tiered fountains that ascend to a cantilevered deck extending 3.5 meters out from the cliff, where couples feel on top of the world as they exchange vows at eye level with the horizon. With capacity for up to 80 people seated for a ceremony on the cliff-edge deck and up to 1,000 for a standing cocktail party in the surrounding gardens.

In Tanjung Benoa you can celebrate your wedding in one of Bali’s most iconic chapels, Infinity Chapel.

The remarkable steel-framed glass wall that makes up the north side of the triangle embodies the delicate and nurturing characteristics of the bride as she supports the equally impressive marble south side, the stoic groom.

Up in Uluwatu, Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort’s cliff side chapel presents a one-of-a-kind weddings of grace, marrying innovative design with meaningful romantic concepts overlooking the dramatic Indian Ocean. Inspired by a surreal coastal setting, where endless blue skies greets a splendid surf, lapping a hillside of rugged natural beauty, Anantara’s wedding chapel encapsulates this cascading romance through a series of intuitive architectural feats which embody the essence of married life. Upon reaching the chapel entrance, an imposing gateway of two stone landmarks represents the presence of two different personalities, while a surface of water on top of each stone signifies that the couple’s separate entities will now become fluid, marking the beginning of their union.


Stepping between the stone gateway, an open air and palm tree lined bridge ascends to the elevated alter haven. At first the passage is flanked by two ponds, whose waters trickle from the gate stones, to flow in one direction as the couple begins their journey towards the same destinations.

Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort has revamped its beachfront wedding venue, Jewel Box. Since it’s launch in April 2015, the venue has been busy hosting dreamy wedding receptions, dinner receptions, and private cocktails.


The resort worked with Lasvit from Singapore for the ceiling design, which is known for its custom-made crystal glass art installations, matching them into the unique interior setups of each venue and space. The Jewel Box’s upper space is now adorned with ‘glass couture’ – a new ribbon-shaped chandelier. Around the upper panel of the floor-to-ceiling windows are floral-fractal motif window screens that add accents to the setting.
Brides and guests, while sheltered inside the pleasant climate-controlled space, are also treated to immaculate Nusa Dua ocean views with the sea and the outlines of the Nusa Penida Island on the horizon. The Jewel Box seats up to 80 guests inside. Surrounding the glass Jewel Box are leafy tropical gardens and a stretch of well-manicured lawns where exotic garden receptions can accommodate up to 200 guests.

Through the Jewel Box’s marble entrance, the polished granite flooring enhances the brightness of the interiors. At one side of the Jewel Box’s base is a water feature – water is highly regarded in Balinese tradition, aptly symbolising life and fertility. Wedding setups are greatly customisable. The expert Magnifique Meetings team at Sofitel Bali offer their highly personalized services, ensuring every detail is primed and every moment is flawlessly designed.

The ultramodern venue is located at the eastern beachfront of the luxury resort. The masterfully designed structure features all four walls comprising glass windows that offer clear views to the gardens and seascape, creating a sense of lucidity and cohesion. With the recently added features, its elegance and class sets it out as a prime beachfront wedding venue.
