Everyone can enjoy active and fun Bali family holidays, as long as you plan properly. Starting with your hotel, the location, and activities; you can map it out before you even get there. Because Bali is a perfect destination for singles, honeymooners, party seekers, and families, you need to think about the age of your children, the sports or other activities they like to do and also what You would enjoy doing.
If your children are still fairly small you might choose a hotel that offers a kid’s club. Pan Pacific in Tanah Lot is built on a golf course great for you if you are a golf aficionado. The children’s club looks big and fun.
Hard Rock Hotel is in Kuta right on the beach promenade and also has special children activities. This beach though is not that ‘safe’; it has lots of undercurrents and is known as the surfer beach because of its waves.
On this promenade, you will also find Pro Surf Club. They also offer special surf camps for grown-ups and maybe teenagers.
Along the beaches of Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and further make sure that you and your children are aware of the flags marking safe and unsafe spots and times and follow the instructions of the lifeguards. We stayed at Seminyak with my brothers family and friends, teenagers. They love tennis and learned how to surf and fly-board.
Sanur Beach, on the east coast, is the safe or family beach. There are plenty of beautiful hotels built right along the beach, no roads to cross. They also have beautiful gardens and stages where Balinese dances are performed during buffet dinner. Your kids and you will love the swimming pools right next to the beach with plenty of comfortable day-chairs even built into the reef protected sea. Our preferred hotel was always Sanur Beach Hotel.
Ubud the artist’s village offers a lot of different accommodation. Some of them are on high ridges overlooking rivers below. The view, location, and bungalows are stunning but not necessarily great for Bali family holidays.
The mountain reagent is also the area where you will find fun activities that older children love. For example river rafting, elephant rides, a bird park and much more.
The north coast offers quiet holidays, well known for diving and dolphin watching. The accommodations are varied, affordable and smaller more intimate in nature.
Balinese people are very welcoming, also to children; you can take them (almost) anywhere, or it is up to you to decide what is and is not appropriate for your children. If your children play at a swimming pool, make sure that you have an eye on them yourself at all time, the same is true for the beach.
Family holidays in Bali can be a blast for everyone if you choose the right environment and activities for you.
