Palak and Bharat, Bali, Jakarta and Thailand
Fully loaded with romantic moments in the lap of nature, this couple’s Southeast Asian honeymoon was surreal, to say the least.
Palak and Bharat knew they were meant for each other from the first date itself. After a whirlwind romance that led to a quick marriage, both of them decided to celebrate their love with an adventurous yet romantic trip to the most famous destinations of South East Asia. Spanning over Bali, Jakarta, and Bangkok, this couple made the most out of their 16-day long honeymoon by enjoying romantic beach dates, stunning sunsets, and boisterous parties.
How They Met
Palak shares, “I first met Bharat when my family was busy searching for a husband for me. My constant complaints about not finding a ‘good’ guy were overheard by one of my friends at the gym who then set me up with Bharat. Coincidentally, Bharat was also in the same boat as me as his parents were on the hunt for the perfect bride for him.
We clicked from the first meeting itself, and we knew right then, that we were meant to be together. After that, there was no looking back, as five days later, we approached our respective families who willingly gave us their blessings.”
When it came to the Honeymoon, the couple had initially mapped out a trip to a few different destinations in the USA, however, as fate would have it, they had to change their plans last minute. Palak shares, “Our initial plans included a trip to the USA where we had decided to go to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and the Bahamas. But after a visa issue, we had to trash the plan. The honeymoon trip that we did however take, was literally planned four days before we flew out, as there were visa constraints and our families were anxious for us to take the trip.
Since both of us love traveling and luxury resorts, we decided to give several destinations a go at once. Owing to Bharat’s love for concerts we also added Jakarta to our list of destinations and attended the Djakarta Warehouse Project which spanned over 3 days. It was one of the most amazing experience of our lives!”
Expressing their love for luxury resorts, the couple chose to stay at prime properties that offered them the best of nature and opulence. At Bali, they had the time of their lives at OMNIA Dayclub Bali, where they reveled in the properties open-air setup. The Bvlgari Resort Bali also impressed them with its hospitality and stunning views of the golden beaches. They also enjoyed a boisterous night at the Full Moon Party, Kho Phangan where they danced under the stars all night long.
However, it was their experience at Capella Ubud, Bali that topped the charts. Palak goes on to share, “We had a beautiful time at Capella Ubud, Bali which has unique tented camps that sit in harmony with the lush foliage that surrounds it. The hospitality we received there was impeccable. Also, the natural beauty of the place spurred us to take a quick walk around the wooden pathways which actually turned out to be quite romantic.”
Most romantic moment
“We experienced the epitome of romance at The Library Koh Samui where Bharat had organized a surprise romantic date for me. The whole scenario looked like it was pulled right out of a romance novel. He had orchestrated the candlelight dinner to perfection and as we sat there staring at the moon and stars, I couldn’t help but fall in love with Bharat all over again!”, gushed Palak.
However, Palak also wasn’t far behind, as she too had organized a surprise date for her hubby at Bvlgari Resort Bali where they witnessed the magnificent sunset together while enjoying delicious treats.
“The Library at Koh Samui is one of those places that I would recommend to everyone visiting Thailand. OMNIA Dayclub Bali is also a fantastic place to let your hair down and enjoy the azure blue sea. Also, we had a great time at Bvlgari Resort Bali where we spent many a romantic moment together having dinner and watching magnificent sunsets.”, shares Palak.
