How much do the romantic getaways cost in Bali?

There is no exact number of how much this costs. However it isn’t going to be cheap. A misconception that is going on, is that Bali is cheap. It really depends on the person coming here and their income. For some doing romantic things for 3 weeks non stop isn’t that expensive, and for others it might be. In general as a couple you can expect to spend around 120 US dollars per day. This is still keeping things modest. It can be cheaper of course, but it depends what activities you might want to do.
