I am currently planning a trip to Bali and would like some advice on Nusa Lembongan. We are first planning 5/6 nights in Ubud where we will be mostly absorbing the culture, sightseeing/daytrips and activities.
Following this we would like to relax in luxury next to an idylic beach and from my research it appear Nusa Lembongan may be the best place for this? If so, would it be worth spending a full 7 nights in this location or would anyone recommend 4 nights here and then 3 nights in the Gili islands? I'm struggling to make up my mind whether Gili is worth the adding travel time and treacherous boat trip and whether we would love Nusa Lembongan enough to not want to leave after 4 nights?
I would also appreciate recommendations for the ideal honeymoon hotel in Lembongan (and the Gilis for that matter), I'm currently looking at the Batu Karang Resort? Ideally we would like a romantic small resort with amazing views and close to the beach.
For the final 2/3 nights we are currently planning to head back to Bali, probably around the Balangan area.
