Ekta Bhanushali and Gaurav Dixit – Singapore and Bali
Ekta and Gaurav decided on a honeymoon in the Far East to recoup from their hectic wedding preparations. The new bride tells us all about their experiences here.
Gaurav and Ekta met through a common circle of friends. Ekta says, “It wasn’t a love at first sight but as we kept meeting and started conversing, we grew fonder of each other. After six years of courtship and a lot of effort spent getting my father to agree, we got married. We’re living the most beautiful phase of our lives now! I don’t want to know what life feels like without him.
Ekta and Gaurav got married on the 3rd of January ’16 in Mumbai. A week after, they flew out for their nine day honeymoon in Singapore and Bali. The couple wanted a city experience and then an exotic hideaway, Ekta explains, “… where we could relax and rejuvenate after our long period of wedding preparations.”
In Singapore, we visited the famous icon, the Merlion. Sentosa is very happening. There is Universal Studios and the Marina Bay Hotel where you get the best drinks and amazing views. And don’t forget the infamous Singapore Flyer which grants you the best city view! We stayed at the Grand Corpthorne Waterfront Hotel
In Bali, we chose the Bali Rich Luxury Villas and Spa Seminyak for its strategic location in the vibrant resort area of Seminyak. We visited the Beratan temple, rice fields and Padang Padang beach. Discovery Mall is one of the finest shopping areas in Bali for brands (and copies too!) You should also check out the street collections at Seminyak and Ubud Street Market. The butterfly park was major fun as well.
Best meal of the trip
As vegetarians, finding food was a big hassle but sandwiches in Bali and Indian street food in Singapore were our saviours!
Most romantic moment
Time spent relaxing in our pool in our Bali villa.
In Singapore, Universal Studios, the cable car and Underwater World in Sentosa.
In Bali, we recommend the Beratan temple, Ubud Street Market and the butterfly garden.
