The perfect combination
Consistently rated one of the top holiday destinations in the world, Bali is renowned to cater to all travellers, and in particular, families. Its close proximity to Australia makes for a relatively quick and pain-free journey in comparison to a lengthy flight to Europe or the USA. The tropical surrounds, laid-back vibe and all-round affordability ensures a seamless holidaying experience.
With its year-round warmth and humidity you won’t have to juggle specific dates to adhere to ideal seasons, instead you can plan the trip with ease around school holidays. The tropical weather and endless stretches of beaches are not the only drawcards; parents will also enjoy introducing their children to Bali’s diverse culture, cuisine and local customs.
The first consideration when planning a trip is usually in regards to the accommodation. There is a plethora of hotels, resorts, apartments and villas to suit family needs whether you’re looking for a beachfront studio with panoramic ocean views, or a five bedroom villa encircled by lush surrounds, away from the hustle and bustle.
Apartments and villas provide you with ample space, multiple bedrooms, private swimming pools and full kitchens– a luxury for families preferring to self-cater. A range of family-friendly hotels including Bali Dynasty Resort also offer superb facilities, from expansive outdoor pools, kid’s clubs and a range of equipment for water sports and activities.
Between swimming in the pool and exploring the surrounds, you’ll no doubt still be looking for different activities to entertain the whole family. All of the beaches offer a range of equipment for hire so you can spend the day kayaking, surfing and windsurfing, while you could also opt for a day trip to go snorkelling, deep-sea diving or fishing.
Waterbom Park is the perfect outing for families, offering a medley of thrilling waterslides and games that span across nearly four hectares, alongside a range of pools and a lazy river that you can enjoy at a leisurely pace. The Bali Safari & Marine Park is also a popular and educational experience for families, showcasing hundreds of species of native wildlife.
