Fiji has some amazing deals on at the moment because it's the wet season. Yes it rains but it's lovely tropical rain and you don't mind getting wet.
Really didn't care too much for Bali. I stayed in Kuta and found it stressful. I just didn't feel like I could trust people there. But the Thais I found lovely. Pedicure every day!

It's a really nice hotel if you can grab a room on sale

We stayed in Bali for our honeymoon, it was amazing! We stayed at damai villas in Lovina and the Samaya in Seminyak. Definitely don't stay in Kuta if you want relaxation.

Anyone stayed in Nusa Dua in Bali?

We went to Bali recently just after it went on alert. There was security everywhere. Apparently it is quite normal but mil who is a frequent visitor there said it was higher than usual. We didn't realise at the time bit we were there for the anniversary of the bombing. If you decide to go then sanur is a good spot. It's quieter than kuta but still close to small markets and a supermarket/grocery store/clothing store (hardies). We stayed at the besaki hotel (on the beach literally) in a classic bungalow which is a premium unit and it was beautiful. Expensive I think though.
As for needles, mil never mentioned needing them but we found out that rabies is highly prevalent and the dogs run free in the streets over there so it is highly advised to get immunized before going. Wish we knew that one but mil is lax on that stuff so we discovered.

As a West Aussie I travel to Bali regularly. I also work in travel medicine
Bali is truly beautiful and one of my favorite places...it's cheap, the people are lovely and it is very diverse. For honeymooning definitely stay out if Kuta, if you still want access to the bustle then look at Legian/Seminyak/Tuba (where Bali Garden is). Sanur is lovely, away from Kuta a bit, but quiet and relaxed. Nusa is more upmarket, bit if a drive..more "resorty", less culture. All just depends what sort of holiday you are after - just remembered traffic can be bad, so it's nice to have some shopping and restaurants nearby.
With regards to health :-
1) Dengue - daytime mozzie - wear repellent at all times - 30% DEET
2) Rabies - no real need for vaccination - but you MUST get post- exposure treatment if you are bitten or scratched by anything with fur and teeth. DO NOT go to the monkey forest!!
3) Hep A - recommended vax - food bourne disease through poor hygiene /faecal contamination of food. Make sure your childhood vaxs are up to date esp Tetanus and MMR.
4) Water - bottled only.
That's the basics really - remember Bali, Thailand and Fiji are all developing countries.
