Bali continues to capture the world’s attention, earning the prestigious title of the best honeymoon destination globally, securing its position at the summit among a distinguished list of ten destinations. The distinguished Travelers Choice Awards 2024, unveiled by the renowned travel website Tripadvisor, bestowed this accolade upon Bali.
The Travelers’ Choice Awards celebrate the best destinations, hotels, restaurants, and activities based on reviews from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Bali, described as a living postcard, invites travelers to revel in the sunshine on its exquisite white sandy beaches, explore underwater wonders through diving, and immerse themselves in the rich cultural tapestry by visiting temples.
The enchanting town of Ubud, hailed as the ‘art capital,’ beckons with traditional art performances, intricate silver craftsmanship, and serene yoga classes.
Tjok Bagus Pemayun, the Head of the Bali Provincial Tourism Office, expressed his delight, interpreting this recognition as a testament to the safety and comfort that Bali offers to tourists. He noted that Ubud is a preferred choice for honeymooners, while other areas such as Candidasa, Tulamben, and West Bali are gaining popularity.
“With the influence of movies like Julia Roberts’ Eat Pray Love, shot in Bali, couples seeking to strengthen their bond are drawn to our shores,” stated Pemayun in Denpasar on Thursday (18/1/2024).
Beyond being a honeymoon paradise, Bali emerges as a favored backdrop for pre-wedding photoshoots, attracting couples from Korea and India. This burgeoning trend not only immortalizes pre-marriage moments but also significantly contributes to hotel occupancy rates in Bali.
“Indian tourists, for instance, often book entire hotels for their weddings, showcasing the immense potential Bali holds,” emphasized Pemayun.
He underscored the comprehensive facilities and outstanding service that Bali offers to tourists, highlighting the adept human resources with standardized skills in handling and arranging the needs of diverse visitors.
Bali’s allure goes beyond its stunning landscapes; it embodies a haven where travelers can create lasting memories, whether embarking on a romantic honeymoon or capturing the essence of love before marriage through picturesque pre-wedding photoshoots. The island’s recognition on the global stage further solidifies its status as a premier destination that seamlessly blends natural beauty with cultural richness.
