With pristine beaches, volcanoes and hillside temples Bali is the perfect destination for families with kids. The ‘Island of the Gods’ is as relaxed or as adrenaline-fuelled as you choose to make it, with plenty to do for kids and teens alike. From a dawn volcano hike (perfect for tweens and teens) to a day of feeding and swimming with sharks at a conservation centre. There is also a chance to learn about Balinese music, dance and cooking and of course there are endless beaches and places of incredible natural beauty.
When planning Bali family holidays, accommodation options include hotels, resorts and villas. Resorts tend to be the most family friendly and offer facilities like multiple pools, restaurants, kids clubs and more. They can be all inclusive meaning that meals and other activities are included in the price of your stay. Most resorts offer family suites or villas which include two bedrooms and a living room, some even have bunk beds.
The Melia Bali is a fantastic choice for families looking for an all inclusive resort with lots of facilities and activities. Located on the beautiful white sands of Nusa Dua it has everything that a family could want from a beachside holiday. The kids can play in the splash pool, fly on the trapeze or make new friends at the kids club, while Mum and Dad can graze on snacks at one of the five restaurants and relax in the spa.
Another great option is the Four Seasons Sayan Resort.
