If you think Bali wouldn’t be as fun if you’re traveling with the kids – these family-friendly beach resorts will make you think otherwise! In fact, it might actually be a great choice for a family vacation.

True, kids have a different definition of fun compared to us adults. But, when you are getting pools and facilities that are specially tailored for kids, combined with everything we adults love about resorts – who’s complaining?

So, if you’re considering going to Bali with your family and are looking for places that will maximise your fun quotient to put up at – take a pick out of these family-friendly resorts you can stay at! From affordable to luxurious options – your family fun would be guaranteed!

Note:The prices reflected below are the low season rates, and they exclude tax and service charges. Accommodation rates often change with room availability, and low or high seasons. We recommend double checking for the final prices before confirming your booking.

1. 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!).

For lunch, we recommend Starz Diner with indoor and outdoor seating and serves international cuisine. Kids who are members of Roxity Kids Club can have lunch for free!

And this has to be favourite part for every child (or child-at-heart) – ultimate foam party, held every Saturday 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.

2. No matter your age or who you travel with, let everything be taken care of – Padma Resort Legian

Travelling with kids can be quite a hassle, it becomes even more of a challenge if you’re travelling with various people of different ages! You need to make sure to find rooms that will accommodate everyone (or at least which have interconnecting doors), a place which will preferably have lots of activities for the little ones, beyond that though, you need to find a resort which will allow you and the rest of your crew to enjoy yourselves as well!Travelling with kids can be quite a hassle, it becomes even more of a challenge if you’re travelling with various people of different ages!

Located just a stone’s throw away from the beach, and incredibly close to the airport, Padma Resort Legian isn’t lacking in all things sun, sand and sea.

Their best feature though? The swimming pool, or should I say ‘pools’! Decked out with five different pools, you could easily spend the whole day hopping in and out from one to another!

Not only that; this gorgeous resort seems to have endless greenery, great for kids to run around and perfect for a post-breakfast stroll around nature!

Coming back to the essentials – while the main pool is the perfect place for the family to base themselves, the lagoon pool is great for transporting yourself to a tropical paradise! The family pool will be the apple of all the kiddo’s eyes, featuring multiple slides, and a colourful mushroom fountain for endless fun!

For those who are a little older and looking to get away from all the commotion that the little ones cause, there’s an adults-only infinity pool which serves as the ultimate sunset location.
Relax by the swim-up bar with one of Padma Legian’s giant martinis in hand as the lowering sun makes the waves glitter around you! Don’t worry about letting the cocktails flow too much, your little ones will be safe and sound at the kids club.

Now, if you happen to be there on a Friday, you’re in luck as you can party it up with their live music sessions! And when it comes to food, Padma Legian doesn’t exclude either; whatever your dietary needs they’ll accommodate!

They even provide gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options or any other dietary requirement you might have. If you’re feeling a bit more creative, make your own sandwich or salad in the Deli where they cater to your meal completely to your liking!

Photo Via Mrssharena, Jen-McNab

Probably most essential, you also get to enjoy a departure lounge that welcomes guests for free – an absolute comfort when you have a late-night flight and in need of a shower and rest after having explored the last bits of Bali! Clearly, Padma Resort Legian understands when it comes to travelling with the whole family!
