While Bali flaunts its beaches as top-tier, it’s not just these that make the island a dream wedding location; it’s the sense of balance that the island portrays. As bars, restaurants, expatriates, and mega-labels call the island home, so do the lush rain forests, towering volcanoes, sprawling temples, and colorful culture and traditions of the Balinese people. This speck of green in the 17,000-island-strong Indonesian archipelago is a medley of old and new, a combination of the realistic and the idealistic, and a union of the past and present—and what better place to start your lives together than an island that is a representation of what many seek in marriage itself.
For those seeking the subtle, yet only-in-Bali celebration, The Legian Bali offers some of the island’s finest wedding packages. With room for 60, the hotel’s arrangements offer a private ceremony that is unique in both its presentation and setting, personalized to the couple’s requests. Whether it is pursuing a traditional Balinese decoration, finding traditional outfits for the big day, incorporating local traditions, or simply arranging tux rentals, brides and grooms are sure to have their needs taken care of.
Couples are also offered a plethora of locations in planning their big day, from a ceremony at the hotel’s exclusive Beach House (its most esteemed stay) overlooking the rolling waves of Seminyak Beach, to other stunning venues outside of its premises, which the The Legian Bali can also help organize. There is the open-air pavilion of Hendra Hadiprana’s private family estate at Bumi Duadari on the banks of the Petanu River in Ubud and the Balinese amphitheater overlooking working rice fields at The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah—ceremonies have been carried out in various locations, and the hotel highly recommends couples pay the island a visit to explore their options.
Whether your wedding overlooks the oranges and pinks and yellows of a Seminyak sunset on the beach, or the terraced green rice paddies of the Balinese countryside, a union conceived in Bali is sure to be something special.
