Bali offers an amazing amount of activities and sights for everyone, especially families with children of all ages. Although well-known for its surfing and wonderful spa treatments, the island also holds the answer to that challenging quest for the perfect family holiday. Imagine excited, happy children, well-rested parents and memories that will last a life time – it’s all here in Bali!
The unique Balinese way of life has an unlimited amount of cultural experiences to see and enjoy, from watching the daily ritual of placing offerings to the elaborate dance and shadow puppet performances. Or relish the superb scenery with an easy downhill cycle trip which wends its way through the rice fields and traditional Balinese villages. Cooking lessons are great fun and can be enjoyed by the whole family, even more so when you accompany the chef to the market where you can experience first-hand all the exotic fruits and spices on display. A day trip to visit anyone of the beautiful temples followed by a leisurely lunch and a swim in the ocean will certainly ensure everyone feels that they are on holiday.
Perhaps the above activities are too tame for the more active, adventurous ones in your family? Bali’s beautiful nature provides the perfect setting for a sunrise volcano climb, white water rafting, para-sailing and jungle trekking. Bali Treetop Adventure Park provides a fun outdoor activity and has carefully designed circuits for children of all ages. Horseback riding along the beach and surfing are also very popular activities.
Travelling with small children?
Safety first! We are happy to organise a pool fence and experienced baby sitters. We can also prepare quality strollers, baby monitors, high chairs etc. No need to drag along these items. Save your suitcase space for shopping.
All our villas can provide baby cots and high chairs, some already have pool fences and dedicated kids rooms with toys. If you need special equipment we can hire it in – car seats to sterilisers.
A lively and stimulating environment for children from 2 to 12 years old can be found at The Cubby House Kids Club. Young children will be accompanied by staff and have their own space where they can play with a huge range of quality toys. For the older ones there are Wii games, movies, dress ups and art and crafts.
Activities for the whole family are also easy to find. Meeting international safety standards, Asia’s No.1 Waterbom Park is located in Bali and provides more than just thrilling waterslides for children of all ages. Fun water game areas, spa treatments and private gazebos complete the experience for the less daring ones. Or visit the Elephant Safari Park and enjoy an elephant ride through the forest. Get really close to these magnificent creatures by feeding as well as washing them.
