Bali With Kids: Accommodation Options

Family-friendly villas offer the opportunity for parents to remove a lot of the stressful aspects of travel. Visiting a site like Villa Finder is a great way to ensure that your specific needs related to ages of children, accessibility features and amenities will be well-met by the facilities. Rather than combing through reviews of different Air BnB’s and hotels, a resource like Villa Bali can help you really fine-tune what you’re looking for.

Villa Bali can also assist you with a lot of the finer details of Bali travel that might be overwhelming in your decision-making process. Airport transfers, drivers, babysitters and even pampering services all come under their professional umbrella. There are many great places available – including Villa Wiana Seminyak that comes highly recommended as a family-friendly accommodation choice. Enquiries are obligation and cost free.

Bali with Kids: Things to See

Bali is a bit of a party scene and has a reputation as a backpacker destination but that doesn’t have to match up with your family-friendly experience! You can definitely go to Bali with kids and make sure that the trip is fun for everyone of all ages whilst being able to avoid the types of party-elements that you’re not interested in (at least while the kids are awake).

This is a great site that offers you some fantastic ideas for things you can do in Bali with kids. Some of them are cheap or free but some require a bit of a budget – that’s definitely something that you’ll have to determine when you’re planning!

You can find:
• Water parks with slides, swimming and games
• Surfing lessons
• Bali Safari and Marine Park
• Ayung River Rafting (definitely for older kids)
• Bali Wake Park (high octane adventure for older kids)
• Ubud’s Kemenuh Butterfly Park (a beautiful adventure for younger kids)
• Banana Boat Rides (lots of fun but definitely for older kids)
• Bounce Bali Trampoline Centre (similar to Australian versions like Bounce and Inflatable World)
• Dream Museum Zone Trick-Eye Gallery (a 3D gallery experience that’s sure to spark wonder and amazement)
• Bali Treetop Adventure Park

In addition to these organised activities, there are also a wide range of natural wonders like beaches and caves to explore and unwind.

Things to note about Bali travel with kids

Lastly, there are a few things to note about making sure your Bali adventure is a positive one.

Be wary of accommodation and drivers who approach you off the street. Do your research first and make sure you are staying in a legitimate venue that’s appropriate for your needs.

Streets can be very crowded and busy so if you have little kids you may want to ensure that you bring your pram or baby-carrier to make the experience safer.
