When it comes to aesthetically pleasing destination wedding venues, it’s hard to overlook Samabe Bali Resort & Villas.

Samabe Bali Resort & Villas is situated on the cliffs of Southern Nusa Dua, overlooking the gorgeous beach and the Indian Ocean. The stunning beach resort recently opened their doors to the public and is all about luxury.

They are located just 30 minutes away from Bali’s International airport and are blessed with some seriously stunning surroundings.

They are situated on 8 hectares of lavish land and have 81 suites and villas, 2 restaurants, 2 bars, a spa, fitness and outdoor gym track, a resort boutique, a wedding chapel, and a selection of venues for private functions such as the Royal Samabe Residence.

Samabe Bali Resort & Villas differentiates itself from other luxury Bali resorts by offering all-inclusive packages. For a set rate they offer “Unlimited Privileges” with benefits, which includes premium meals and beverages, a wide selection of Samabe signature activities, entertainment, and spa treatments.

We certainly love the idea of unlimited privileges, but we especially love the idea of lots of wedding options and wedding assistance. This is an area where Samabe Bali Resort & Villas truly shines. This resort offers everything a bride could possibly dream up!

You could choose to wed in the Pearl Chapel, which is a contemporary majestic glass wedding chapel that has a 180-degree view of the Ocean and can accommodate up to 80 guests.

On the other hand, you could wed at the Ring of Fire, which is a ring-shaped open-air area located by the pool and overlooking the spectacular Indian Ocean. This area is perfect for intimate weddings and can accommodate up to 8 guests.

Then again, for a truly private ceremony, you could wed in your Wedding Villa. A Wedding Villa ceremony is perfect for those that want the ceremony to only include the bride, groom, celebrant, and the sound of breaking waves.

You can also customize your wedding flowers, cake, and table decorations. Plus, you get a Director of Romance with an experienced Wedding Team to assist you through every stage of your wedding.

What’s more, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to reception venues. You could hold your reception at the Royal Samabe Residence, the TE.JA.CO Lounge & Bar, or the Rempah-Rempah Main Dining Room. We especially love the Royal Samabe Residence, which stands adjacent to Pearl Chapel. It’s a palatial two-story residence that can accommodate 80 guests. It has a sizeable party area, an outdoor BBQ, private pool and a mini stage for special entertainment.

Viceroy Bali 11.03.2013

When it comes to destination wedding venues we have three things that are high on our priority list: gorgeous venue, excellent service and convenience. Viceroy Bali has them all – it’s essentially the destination wedding venue that holds the triple threat.

Viceroy Bali is a five star family owned and operated resort in Ubud consisting of 25 luxuriously appointed private pool villas. The gorgeous pool villas are majestically situated in Bali’s “Valley of the Kings”. “Valley of the Kings” is a title given to the area by locals due to the many generations of Balinese royalty who resided in nearby villages.

From the moment you arrive at Viceroy Bali, it’s easy to see why Balinese royalty were attracted to the peaceful area. The lush surroundings make Viceroy Bali feel like a tropical hideaway. It also feels tremendously sophisticated, comfortable, and private.





When it comes to weddings, Viceroy Bali is quintessential and has an events team that can handle anything and everything. They are well prepared and super experienced in planning all types of weddings, from large traditional white weddings to intimate Balinese legal weddings. The team handle all customised activates for the event {photographer, wedding cake, band), whilst also creating a delicious culinary experience and providing superior attentive service.




The convenience factor is also extremely endearing, as Viceroy Bali has every facility under the sun. It has the Viceroy Bar, which has an exceptional view over the Petanu river gorge and is a perfect place to just sit and relax. It has CasCades Restaurant, which is an award-winning fine dining restaurant with a contemporary French menu influenced by exotic Asian flavours.

It has the Lembah Spa, which offers therapeutic body treatments developed by a certified Swiss therapist. It has a gymnasium where you can book yourself in for a private yoga class. It has a boutique full of casual resort wear, jewellery and artefacts. It even has a helicopter pad, perfect for guests that want to avoid the 45-minute drive from the Ngurah Rai international airport or for guests that want to tour neighbouring islands in style.

It also has a large infinity edge pool, library and so much more.



The accommodation includes the Garden Villas, the Terrace Villas, the Deluxe Terrace Villas, the Vice Regal Villas, and the Viceroy Villa. All the villas are spacious, beyond luxurious, and include a pool. Complimentary perks include daily á la carte breakfast, wireless internet connection, daily restocking of the mini bar with non-alcoholic drinks, an espresso maker, 24 hr room service and magnificent views of the Petanu River Gorge.


Viceroy Bali makes you feel special, valued, and appreciated. It was thoughtfully conceived and manages to reach deep into your soul and offer a treasured and memorable experience. In a nutshell, it’s a special place for a special day or a special honeymoon.

How to Decorate a Destination Wedding 16.12.2011

Packing the decorative items for a destination wedding doesn’t have to be a major chore. Today, we’re sharing wonderful destination wedding reception ideas and decorating advice.

After organising and packing your garments, accessories, and wedding favors, focus on the décor next. Delegate a separate bag or suitcase especially for the decorating pieces, so the table runners don’t get mixed up with your gown and the pom-poms aren’t lying beside your veil. Also, choose only those materials that are lightweight and pack flat, so that you don’t use up extra bags for them. Remember, extra baggage = extra effort and extra charges!

Here’s some wedding inspiration on five fabulous and affordable ways to pack your destination wedding décor:

1. Fabric table runners – pick a material that doesn’t need ironing, unless you want to be ironing (or looking for someone who wants to iron) when you arrive at your destination! Linen and burlap are not good choices because they wrinkle easily. But if you’re bent on using that cute burlap runner you bought online, go ahead—except you must roll, not fold.


2. Flags and bunting – these are very popular in weddings today. They’re really adorable and take up very little space when packed. But they tend to wrinkle easily especially if packed with heavier items. To make sure that they don’t get creases from the other articles in your suitcase, place the carefully folded flags or bunting in a large re-sealable bag or manila envelope before packing them with the other décor pieces.


3. Fabric chair slipcovers – ask the hotel or resort for their chair measurements to make sure that your slipcovers will fit. Bring only those that only go over the back (or only on the seat), because you will need a lot more room in your luggage if you opt for the ones that cover the whole chair. But hey, if you want to cover the entire chair, that’s fine, too! Again, consider wrinkle-free fabrics so that all you need to do is unpack and dress up the chairs.


4. Cardboard cupcake tower – Get cake boards and cake dummies from your local bakery or supermarket and decide how many tiers you’re going to have. Place the materials inside re-sealable bags to keep clean. Here’s a post from Cake Journal on how to assemble the tower when you’re at the hotel; don’t worry because it’s super easy! Although to save time, you might want to cover the boards with wrapping paper before packing.


5. Paper decorations, such as garlands and pom-poms – Make the garlands ahead of time. These are a bit time-consuming, so don’t think you can assemble them at the venue. Flat designs, such as leaves, are best for packing. Place them in a re-sealable bag or envelope, too, and make sure there are no creases. For the pom-poms, stack tissue paper, fold accordion-style, and secure middle with twine or wire. You can throw them all together in a plastic bag and fluff them up into full-fledged pom-poms just before hanging.


Finally, remember to check customs for the country we’re your hosting your soiree, as certain countries don’t allow certain items in. After all, it’s better to be safe then sorry.
