Bali calling? If you are heading there with the little ones in tow, this handy list of the Top 5 kid friendly hotels across Bali, is a keeper. Promising hours of entertainment, amazing facilities and limitless fun; we guarantee you and your kids, won’t be disappointed!
With the Kid’s Club open every day till 9 pm, a well-shaded series of pools and a clean, shallow beach - be rest assured the children will be all smiles, through your stay. Add parent and child spa dates, hair braiding and activities such as pizza making to the mix, and you have a spectacular holiday on your hands.
Got two kids or more? There’s no need to book two rooms for the family anymore! The Adventure Suites at Holiday Inn Resort Bali Benoa feature a separate parents and kid's room in fun sea-themed décor. There’s even a separate dedicated kid’s bathroom with a bathtub and special children’s amenities. Travelling with a baby? Ask for sterilisers, baby bathtubs, toiletries – truly, nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this family hotel.
Parents can spend their days at the spa, cycling into the sunrise, trying different water sports or simply relaxing on the generously large number of beach beds. And if that doesn’t please you – the daily happy hours, certainly will!
Chocolate buffets, movie screenings and a pirate theme kid’s club, make the Movenpick Resort & Spa in Jimbaran, one of Bali’s favourite family destinations. We love the family sized loft-style rooms and a free-form swimming pool with its own artificial beach. Should you want to build sand castles at the Jimbaran beach instead, it’s a mere 10-minute walk from the hotel. With every amenity provided including plenty for the little ones (child-sized bathrobes, bamboo flip flops et al), you will have enough room in your luggage to take back some of that Bali shopping instead. Forget something? Don’t worry, the hotel is linked to the Samasta Lifestyle Village which has an array of dining options and a very handy gourmet grocery too!
Explore the fine sandy beaches of Nusa Dua while staying at the Westin Resort – a great mix of top hospitality together with one of the best-equipped kid’s clubs in the region. The Westin Family Kids Club comes with an indoor, outdoor and separate toddler area as well as a dedicated teen zone. With F&B options aplenty, a wide range of recreation programs and an award-winning spa, there’s enough to keep you and the kids busy through their holiday. Don’t forget to ask about the SPG Kids pass, which at a flat daily rate allows children all you can eat dining options through the length of their stay!
Don’t miss out on Bali’s cultural centre, Ubud if you are travelling with the children. Padma, Ubud offers fabulous facilities for family stays, and that ‘get away from it all feeling’ with stunning views of the bamboo forests. A dedicated kids club, massive free-form infinity pool, one and two-bedroom suites, make this an easy family pick. Sunrise yoga, a 1.5km jogging track overlooking the forest and a swim-up bar; you’ve got fun stuff sorted for the adults too! Also promising a culturally immersive experience with the kids, the hotel organises Balinese dancing, trips to the nearby village and plenty more.
If you have your heart set on Kuta and its wonderful shopping and dining opportunities, the Hard Rock Hotel is a great family hotel to consider. With the Hard Rock Roxity Kids Club offering endless play, music and dancing opportunities for kids of all ages, there’s little doubt your children will ever want to leave! Family rooms with options for bunk beds, an on-site climbing wall, beach challenges, cinema and even a clinic for holiday emergencies – we could go on and on. Need more? Jamie’s Italian is on the hotel grounds too!
