And no, that’s just the tip of the iceberg of fun for the kids. At the Wolly Kids Club and Kids Party, they will go wild. With various indoor and outdoor activities like cooking classes, art & craft, fun water aerobics, Bahasa Indonesia lessons, Cartoon time and more, they will make new friends and be completely and happily occupied the entire day!
The older ones would appreciate the Games Centre, which is equipped with the latest electronic games such as PlayStation 4 and many more favourite games like air hockey, table soccer and even a mini billiard!
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget you adults. Tenkai Japanese Restaurant has something even for the biggest gourmands – their popular Japanese buffet will undoubtedly satisfy your tastebuds!
To savour some well-deserved couple time while the little ones have fun, go for the signature -2 beer at S.K.A.I. Beach Club and watch the sun go down over the infinity pool – time to rekindle that romantic spark!

Now we wouldn’t say this is a family-friendly resort if there’s no rooms specially designed to provide the best comfort for both parents and kids. At the dedicated Family Block, the Kids Pool, Kids Club and Kids Juice Bar are located close to one another, and the Family Room in this block comes with a connecting children’s room with bunk bed so kids can have their privacy but you can still keep an eye on them. It also comes with easy access to the family pool (for ground floor rooms) so you don’t even need to go too far to splash into the water!
2. Your perfect vacation soundtrack: Hard Rock Hotel Bali
Let’s get the party started at Hard Rock Hotel Bali! All the little and big rockers rush to the paradise of music, fun and family parties where everyone becomes a rock star!
To get access to all the fun activities such as rockwall climbing challenge, your young ones have to join the Roxity Kids Club for the special adventures. Take part in the Kids Olympics and maybe you’ll bring a medal home with you!
For the tired parents, get that well-deserved rest on the Sand Island, surrounded by the largest free-form swimming pool in Bali. Find shelter in the cabanas, order food and refreshments from Splash Bistro and enjoy it under the shade with your feet cooling off in the pool.
Meanwhile, you can watch your kids go down the waterslide ecstatically, splashing into a supervised, child-safe pool. They would love walking on the water in a giant zorbing ball and other pool activities! Kids get to have their own swim-up bar too, so let them paddle off to The Shack Junior for their juice fix after excessive fun (if this can even be excessive!).

And this has to be favourite part for every child (or child-at-heart) – ultimate foam party, held every Friday and Sunday at 4pm! Have a family foam fight and see who gets lost under the foam as first!
Your littlest babies (6 months to 3 years) can now have their fair share of fun at the newly opened Lullaby Kids Club. The experienced nursery teachers will take care of your babies for 2 hours a day as though they were their own. That gives you enough time for a romantic sunset cocktail or a movie night with your partner!
After that long day of excitement, retire for the night at the Roxity Family Suite, which is piled full of children’s entertainment such as PlayStation 4. Teenagers can even rent a guitar and take a TV guitar lessons or become DJs with a rented mixer and iPad! Here at Hard Rock Hotel Bali, music is everywhere.

Fun never ends for them with the Kupu-Kupu Kiddies’ Club, which is free of charge, with daily organized activities like a watermelon-eating contest, water-pillow fighting, duck feeding or kids yoga.
There is something for teens as well! At The Den, a club with free entrance for teens 10-16 years old, they can beat the best score at the X-Box and PlayStation, watch movies, play pool or table tennis. But the best thing is, there are no parents here!
After all the fun and games, head to the H2O Restaurant, where all kids below 12 years old eat for free from the buffet when accompanied by same number of paying adults. Every evening comes with a different themed buffet from around the world. And there are many more restaurants to choose from – Golden Lotus where you can taste Chinese cuisine and Gracie Kelly’s which has an interior of a 100-year-old Irish pub!
If the kids want to try something cool, they can get a funky hairstyle or 3D nail art at Cutz4Kids hairdresser. While getting their hair done, they’ll be seated in a race car and watching their favorite cartoon! And Moms, now’s the time to pamper yourselves at Flair Hair Salon or Ashoka Spa, which offers various types of treatments and massages (they even have one specially for kids!).
When the kids are finally resting after a day of fun, adults can head for a drink at one of the 5 bars. For the ultimate sunset experience, we recommend a cocktail at the upper deck of H2O and savour the precious moments of your holiday!
