We went to Bali for our honeymoon and as we had spent soooo much money on our wedding didn't do our normal amount of trips however we did splurge on a 1 night trip to Lembongan, friends had recommended it (especially the underwater walking).
To some peoples annoyance we were part of the daily boat trip group but for our luck we got to stay the night and must admit it was extremely peaceful once the day trip boats had gone. We paid an extra $15 to stay in a beach front hut which was worth every penny.
The location is amazing, we hired bicycles from the resort but didn't see much of the island. We also hired a kayak and went out in to the bay. Mushroom bay alone was incredible enough. The huts are basic but the view is incredible, the best part was going to bed with the curtains open and seeing the lights across the bay and then waking up in the morning to the sound of the waves crashing.
For us this was incredible however we didn't experience much of the island or the resort so can not really comment on that. We had dinner at the restaurant on the end of the bay and watched an amazing sunset. I'm not sure there would have been alot to do if we had stayed longer than 1/2 nights unless you really did just want to relax.
(tip - I got a little sea sick travelling there, remember pills or just stand outside on the deck for the duration).
