No matter what day it is during the week, it’s always a fun day at Novotel’s Kids’ Club. From crafts to sports, cultural to outdoor activities, each day has its own theme not to be missed. Parents can plan the family’s itinerary according to the kids’ interest and the club’s schedule. If, for example, your kid digs traditional dance lessons, sign up for the club’s next cultural day and you’ve got yourself some off-duty time to use however you wish. Novotel Nusa Dua also has great facilities for some quality time together, including the spacious pool and fun beach activities.
Grand Mirage has kid-friendly activities even adults will envy. The vast and lively kids arena consists of indoor and outdoor playing areas, well-equipped with everything the kids could ever imagine—a trampoline, slides, fireman’s pole, to the newest video games. But no island getaway would be complete without some water attractions, and this resort delivers exceptionally with a large waterpark that will spark joy in children’s eyes instantly just by the mention of it. We’re talking water fountains, 15-meter slides, water cannon, and water geysers. Kids can also join a supervised day out at the beach and take their adventures to a whole new level with various water sports, speedboat rides and more.
Located at the heart of the sleepy beach town of Sanur, kids can still maintain their zestful active days with a lot of entertainment to choose from while parents laze the day away in the laid-back Sanur atmosphere. From some freeplay time in the well-equipped Kids’ Club to surf lessons (organized by the renowned Rip Curl School of Surf), your kids are guaranteed to have a great time while you embark on your own adventures. When it’s time for some quality time, there are also many activities to do together, including family sports, cooking classes, excursions, and yoga.
The wide array of fun programs and activities offered by Patra Jasa Bali will keep the kids not only busy and entertained, but also educated and enlightened. The Kids’ Club alternate (and often blend) playing and learning, such as learning to make kites then flying them afterward. In between playing and exploring the large property area with other holiday-goers, kids can also sign up for more formal lessons, such as Bahasa Indonesia, tennis, and more. Families can also enjoy some bonding time while cycling along the beach, relaxing in the spacious rooms or building sandcastles at Patra Jasa’s own beachfront yard.
At Ayodya Resort’s Kids Club, children are offered a rounded experience, from cultural, educational, to recreational. From morning games, nap-time movies, to afternoon classes, your kids will have too great a time to complain. Meanwhile, parents will have no problem enjoying themselves in and around the spacious establishment, whether they opt for the opulent pool, stylish lounges, lush gardens or the cozy rooms. Even after a fun day spent separately, families can still join together for a casual stroll by the beach just in front of the resort while waiting for the glorious sun to set.
At this family-friendly resort, kids’ adventures start right from the moment they open their eyes in the morning. The Kids Adventure Suite is merrily decorated with calming blue hues and marine creatures—think Nemo and adorable dolphins attached on every side of the wall. Things get even more exciting outside the bedroom. With all the games and facilities, your kids couldn’t ask for more. Parents are also welcome to join in for a game of darts or play on the consoles (make sure take turns with the kids, though!).
If you’re looking for an intimate family getaway with a touch of luxury, Hilton Bali provides everything you could ever need to go home satisfied. Together, families can enjoy activities such as camel safari, cooking classes, water sports, and more. When the parents need some alone time, there is the renowned Jungle Camp Kids Club that will welcome kids with open arms. Trained staff will be supervising while the children enjoy themselves playing around the jungle-themed playground and the older kids learn to make crafts or read from one of the club’s book collection. This luxe resort also has four interconnecting swimming pools, including the spacious children’s lagoon pool.
With various group activities in the Sofitel’s Kids’ Club, your kids will not only have fun but quickly make friends with other guests their age. From cooking to yoga and traditional dance classes, children are guaranteed to go home with more than a tan but with new skills to mark the trip. For those who prefer to be indoors, the on-site console games, books, and art programs will add equal value and amusement for kids of any age.
