Honeymoon Bliss at The Layar

in Destinations/Tips/Weddings by

The ideal honeymoon escape includes a sanctuary, a snug and divine welcoming space to celebrate, relax and appreciate your love in complete privacy. The Layar, located in the heart of Seminyak, hosts the perfect honeymoon villas, right on the doorstep of world-famous restaurants, beach clubs, shopping and surf.  Stay in and soak up Bali’s sun-kissed tropical ambience in your private pool, or mingle with fellow holiday-makers in this l’eldorado touristique. 

Imagine your perfect honeymoon in paradise

A romantic path draws you into the quiet and peaceful heart of The Layar.  Pass through lush manicured lawns and fragrant frangipani trees resplendent with exotic red lanterns framing the entrance to your villa hideaway. It’s the first welcome into a perfect honeymoon setting.

Stepping inside your private one-bedroom villa, the first thing you notice is its outstanding design. Each villa’s slanted ironwood-shingle roof frames a larger space which houses the living and dining quarters.

The bedroom is especially alluring, with a king-sized bed and a luxurious seating area.

A pair of sliding doors open up to a romantic pool deck. The garden bathroom contains special features such as a foliage-fringed shower, Palimanan stone counters and a spectacular stone bathtub. The inviting stone bathtub sits majestically in the center of a white-pebbled courtyard, against a lush backdrop of tropical rainforest plants.

The living room is set-up like a romantic dream haven, where the award-winning design emphasises a natural flow. It’s easy to relax in this graceful space.

If you want to spend time just lounging about, there is an entertainment centre at your fingertips, and sun loungers on the pool deck. The tiered, shallow section of the pool begs you to take a dip or splash about and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere.

A triangular galley kitchen lies opposite the sleeping area and its ensuite garden bathroom. It contains all the equipment you need to cook a special meal for your partner. But if you prefer to be pampered instead, order room service and  feast on spectacular food by Settimo Cielo, The Layar’s restaurant. All your gastronomic dreams will come true. 

Your honeymoon bliss is capped off with a floating breakfast on the pool.

The Layar’s special honeymoon package includes a bottle of Prosecco,

Hosting your wedding at a private holiday rental or villa estate has considerable benefits. Group accommodation is convenient all-around and lends to quality time with your dear guests before, during and after the big day. You’ll likely be required to book a stay of more than two nights anyway. Slow down and enjoy every minute of preparation, attention and celebration – it’s all about you (you two) sharing your promise.

Clifftop wedding villa Bali

Romantic and exotic Bali is an inviting island for destination weddings, where dreams of saying ‘I do’ with an ocean view come true.

These luxury Bali villas set on dramatic cliff-tops and exclusive beach-fronts are the best sea view event venues you’ll find.

Sohamsa ocean view Bali vwedding enueSohamsa Ocean Estate

Perched on the towering cliffs above Pandawa Beach on the southern tip of Bali, Sohamsa Ocean Estate is coveted by brides-to-be for its contemporary style and sweeping sea views.

With a grand entrance, spacious courtyard and gorgeous backdrop, this pair of villas is perfectly set up for an idyllic outdoor wedding.

Sohamsa Bali ocean view villaAt Villa Soham, the view is complimented by a 22-metre infinity pool and cliff-edge balé pavilion which works as a covered dining area, lounge or dance floor.

Next door Villa Hamsa is as convenient as can be for VIP guests to stay on-site, but in their own separate villa. It can also serve as a lavish behind-the-scenes dressing room on the big day.

Sohamsa Uluwatu ocean viewsFive-bedroom Villa Soham and four-bedroom Villa Hamsa host 50 people for seated events and can accommodate up to 22 overnight guests.

The multi-tiered property is landscaped with tidy lawns, lotus ponds, lush greenery and understated blooms to create an unbelievably romantic setting for a ceremony and reception. Adding your own wedding flowers and event décor is of course welcome.

Dusk heralds a ‘magic hour’ for photos in the villa’s indoor-outdoor spaces (and picturesque white sand Pandawa Beach is only a two-kilometre drive away, so zipping down to the beach for some shots there is an option too).

Sunset wedding villa bukit baliWeather remains sultry into the evening, and the whole venue is beautifully lit at night. Additional party lights and sound equipment can be brought in as needed. Both villas have high-speed WIFI, PABX room-to-room phone system, Sonos sound system and behind-the-scenes staff areas.

We can recommend expert event organisers, florists, decorators and caterers, so you can focus on relaxing and celebrating with your guests.

Before and after your special event, a personal team of villa staff are on hand to help ensure that you enjoy a worry-free wedding. Another bonus of staying at Sohamsa Ocean Estate for your wedding are its wellness facilities – a large gym,

What to Wear to a Wedding in Bali

Bali wedding ceremony at sunset

The legendary romance of Bali has long seduced celebrities when it comes to staging Gatsby-like nuptials. Thus, the ‘Island of the Gods’ is now a celebrated wedding destination. Perhaps you have already received your invitation? But what to wear to a wedding in Bali?

Bali simmers with wedding fever all year round and being invited to such a joyous celebration is not only an honour and an opportunity for a superb vacation – it’s also the ultimate justification to slip into something sensational.

DESTINATION WEDDING

International weddings, Bali style, are often set on luscious green lawns flanked by tropical gardens or jungle – a horror for high heels; or on soft white sand – shocking for stilettos. Selecting the right footwear can be a challenge for Bali wedding guests. While barefoot beach brides are bound to raise a smile, guests are expected to be suitably shod.

Be sure that your outfit works with flats or low-slung sandals. Super-light silk resort styles are the perfect partner for sexy sandals in the sultry tropics.

Whatever the dress code, frocking up for a Bali wedding should be fun. Think shoestring straps and flowing maxi-dresses; black & white prints and halter necks. Floaty dresses in feather-light silk do well with a stretch cotton underdress to guard against humidity. Another sizzling look is a frilly off-the-shoulder top paired with loose linen trousers or a slender skirt. Classic cotton sundresses, aptly accessorized, are an elegant choice, while the fashion-forward jumpsuit (which American Vogue has tipped to conquer this season’s cocktail parties) works wonderfully at a Bali wedding.

BALINESE WEDDING

If the wedding is traditional Balinese style, be prepared for some striking surprises and be ready to push out your fashion boundaries. Selamat menempuh hidup baru – is the polite way to say congrats.

Indonesian’s adore dressing up so choose something spectacular, formal and traditional. Given the extraordinary outfit the bride will be wearing – complete with a massive golden crown – it will be impossible to outshine her. And expect to see the groom bedecked in an equally magnificent costume; draped with jewelry;
