Bali’s Nirjhara is a Haven for Honeymooners

A family-owned retreat in the Balinese countryside offers newlyweds laid-back luxury and a range of activities, all underscored by an eco-conscious ethos.

Encompassing a wide swath of west-central Bali, Tabanan regency is best known for sights like the iconic Hindu temple Pura Tanah Lot, built atop an offshore rock formation. Here, amid the bucolic rural scenery, Nirjhara serves as the perfect backdrop for just-married couples to begin a new journey together. Just 20 minutes’ drive from vibrant Canggu and about an hour away from Ngurah Rai International Airport, this boutique eco-resort puts guests within reach of the island’s varied natural attractions, including the picturesque Jatiluwih rice terraces and many hidden waterfalls.

With just 25 villas and an attentive team of staff members, Nirjhara has all the ingredients for a truly personalized stay. Honeymooners can relish the soothing views of verdant rice paddies as they soak in a freestanding tub on the rooftop deck of the Canopy suites. Styled as a contemporary treehouse clad in reclaimed ironwood and teak, the 60-square-meter suites come tastefully appointed with artisanal bespoke furnishings, original artworks, and Axor bathroom fittings designed by Philippe Starck. Nirjhara also offers three types of one-bedroom pool villas, each one at least 200 square meters in size. The largest is the Jungle Pool Pavilion, which is set in a private garden and boasts its own infinity-edge pool.

Through the Honeymoon special, lovebirds will enjoy a three-night stay in selected suites and villas with daily breakfast along with an array of benefits. These include a special cocktail at sundown followed by a sumptuous five-course dinner for two. Held at the riverside Shala, a bamboo-built yoga pavilion designed by eco-architects Ibuku, or the pergola facing the waterfall, this romantic dinner merges modern cooking techniques with traditional Indonesian flavors.

Also featured in the experience is a complimentary one-hour couple’s treatment at The Retreat, the on-site spa featuring four treatment rooms, two Finnish saunas, a yoga deck, and a fully equipped gym. In addition, newlyweds at Nirjhara will get to pick from a daily program of complimentary activities both on- and off-site, like a sightseeing excursion into Tabanan’s lush landscapes and quaint villages by mountain bike. Couples will also get free usage of the in-house private cinema with a selection of Hollywood classics, blockbusters, and indie films.

Visiting honeymooners can rest well knowing that Nirjhara is actively doing good for the planet. Its commitment to sustainable luxury is evident in the use of locally sourced construction materials like recycled wood, natural stones, and traditional sirap roofing. The resort also taps into renewable energy through eco-friendly heat pumps and solar-powered water heaters, while the water purification system supports a no single-use plastics policy. In a similar spirit, Ambu — Nirjhara’s stylish yet laid-back restaurant — embraces a “slow food” philosophy, with 95 percent of ingredients sourced from the resort’s own vegetable garden, nearby farms, and trusted local suppliers.
