Nestled in the misty jungle-clad mountains of Banjar Selat, the five-star Buahan, A Banyan Tree Escape offers couples a chance to reconnect and retreat from the world. There are only 16 villas here, each with its own private pool and outlook over Bali’s seven mountain peaks. The designs of the villas contribute to what the resort calls the ‘Naked Experience’; all free-flow spaces, open decks and emphasis on a holistic guest stay. Villas, or bales, are perched over waterfalls, valleys and amid rainforest canopies to further emphasise your jungle oasis. Seek out the open-air Toja Spa for relaxation and wellness treatments, or take advantage of the hotel’s program of culinary, cultural and outdoor experiences.

The Kayon Jungle Resort offers a serene adults-only escape in the heart of Bali's lush landscapes, perched on the hillside of Ubud's mountain ranges. This Bali resort will sweep you off your feet with a stunning three-tiered infinity pool overlooking the valley and a romantic ambience, including at The Canyon Jetty Restaurant, where couples can indulge in intimate candle-lit dinners within secluded pod-like seating. Couples will also love the private pool villa, complete with jungle views, bathtubs and personal butler service. Some villas have tree-slung hammocks, providing the perfect spot to unwind amidst the natural beauty. 

La Reserve 1785 Canggu Beach 

La Reserve 1785 Canggu Beach is one of the top adults-only Bali resorts, perfect for couples and friends.

Bali's renowned surf paradise awaits at La Reserve 1785 Canggu Beach, a luxurious boutique adults-only hotel and spa. This Bali bolthole is a fusion of French elegance and Balinese charm. The resort collaborates with local surf experts to arrange surfing lessons, perfect for adventurous couples looking to wade into some of the world's most celebrated waves. Or, couples looking to indulge, can visit the Secret Spa, which promises treatments inspired by French and Balinese beauty. Looking to book an adults-only getaway with friends, not just a partner? La Reserve 1785 can be booked on exclusive-use basis, meaning the entire property is yours – perfect for a girls’ weekend or a bigger trip with friends. 

The Royal Purnama 

The swimming pool at The Royal Purnama is just one facility that makes it one of Bali's best adults-only resorts.  

 The Royal Purnama resort in Bali is the perfect five-star beachfront escape for grown-up families. This beachfront bolthole is more akin to ‘child-free’ than strictly adults only, as it only welcomes guests aged 12 years and above. However, that makes it a perfect setting for families with older children who don’t need kids’ clubs, babysitter services or paddling pools. For those seeking utmost seclusion, the Two- or Four-Bedroom Villa with Private Pool is the ultimate Balinese-style oasis, offering indoor-outdoor living, a verdant courtyard and a spacious kitchen. A Four-Bedroom Presidential Beach Front Pool Villa is available for groups wanting to splash out and into unrivalled luxury. Parents wanting pampering – or any other guests for that matter – can take time for themselves at the Black Sand Spa, with treatments using the black volcanic sand along the coastline. Among the facials and massages is the signature treatment: Bali’s first healing volcanic sandpit.
