Bali has plenty of fun family resorts that offer everything from amazing kids’ clubs to pools with water slides.
Family rooms, with their spacious sizes, are also the perfect alternative to expensive villa accommodations. But what if you want some privacy to yourself? We think adjoining / interconnecting rooms will be your next best friend.
The convenience of having a connecting door between two rooms makes it easy for you to check on the little ones, while making sure that you’ll have your own private space with your spouse as well. Sometimes, interconnecting rooms might even be a more economic choice compared to family rooms…
Especially in hotels that have so many activities and facilities available!
You won’t even have to step out and spend big bucks to make this holiday a special one for both yourself and your children.
We’ve curated some of the best family resorts in Bali with adjoining / interconnecting rooms, and so many activities they’ll make your head spin. Get ready to rediscover the family side to Bali!
PS: Do note that interconnecting rooms are limited. We recommend emailing in to make your booking well in advance to reserve these rooms for your upcoming holiday.
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. Fun family vacation at ease: Padma Resort Legian
Imagine you are in the middle of an alluring tropical garden, sunbathing by a huge winding lagoon pool. This is an oasis where parents unwind and kids have fun with their newfound friends – your ultimate family vacation awaits at Padma Resort Legian!

Your little ones can’t miss the Wolly Kids Club, where they will find a big doll house, dinosaurs, fluffy plush animals, puzzles, little kiddie kitchen and much more! They can also enjoy various fun and educational activities, such as cooking classes, art & craft, making offering baskets, learning Balinese dance or learning how to play traditional bamboo instruments. Don’t forget the Kids Party where your little ones can make new friends while having fun with games and movie night!
The Games Centre is here for the restless teens who want to beat the best score at PlayStation 4 or play a game of mini biliard. And if you have little princesses, their girly fantasies will become reality by the poolside pampering corner, where they can get their hair braided and have a mini manicure!
To end your day with delicious perfection, head to DONBIU restaurant for a themed buffet dinner. It’s a different theme every night, and you can enjoy Balinese-themed evenings, Italian, tropical BBQ and Indonesian-themed buffet evenings. The Japanese themed buffet takes place at Tenkai Japanese Restaurant.

At the end of the day, it’s time to find comfort in the Family Room – Mom and Dad’s bedroom is interconnected with a children’s room. So while the kids will be happy to get their privacy in their own room with a triple bunk bed and beanbag seat, parents will be glad they are just a few steps away from them too! The room also has an easy access to the family pool, so you can jump right in for a refreshing swim in the morning!

2. Live like a rockstar: Hard Rock Hotel Bali
Do you or your kids have rockstar dreams? Hard Rock Hotel Bali is where you can truly lead that celebrity life with your family! While travelling with the little ones, where best to stay at than interconnecting rooms, where your kids get the privacy they need but you can still keep an eye on them at the same time?

Parents, while you swim up to the half-submerged The Shack Bar to enjoy your cocktails, kids can enjoy their share too at The Shack Junior, a swim-up bar for the kids where they can get a refreshing juice and rest after too much fun (if you can even complain about this!).
The excitement doesn’t end – your kids will meet new friends at Roxity Kids Club where they’ll get top-star treatment and fun programmes and activities – let them challenge themselves at rockwall climbing, attempt to win a medal in the Kids Olympics or join a pillow fight!
The youngest ones (6 months to 3 years old) can join the Lullaby Kids Club, where experienced nursery teachers will help to babysit your precious babies while you sneak off for some well-deserved couple time at the spa or pool with your partner.
Don’t miss the foam party every Friday and Sunday at 4pm too – both adults and kids love it!

At the end of the day, retire to the Luxury Kids Suite, which comes with a fancy soaking tub and a walk-in wardrobe for parents. The kids’ room is a little paradise packed with entertainment such as PlayStation 4, and comes with their own room and ensuite bathroom. A big bonus – the room is located near the Chill Out Pool!
Or opt for the Roxity Family Suite, which is similar to the Luxury Kids Suite, except without the ensuite kids’ bathroom. But regardless of which you choose, you know that your entire family will surely enjoy a whirlwind of fun!
3. Home away from home: Bali Paragon Resort
Nestled in a romantically landscaped garden, Bali Paragon Resort provides serenity, and yet is still located near seafood restaurants in the heart of Jimbaran. It’s a little paradise under the Jimbaran sunset!

Resorts like Prime Plaza Suites Sanur are an absolute steal for families, and we’ll tell you why – kids’ club and pool slides (yes, as simple as that)!
The stay resolves all of your decision-making stress when travelling with kids to Bali – where to eat, what to do, where the kid-friendly spaces are, and where to get some adult time.
These questions are answered as you get to stay at a family-friendly accommodation that doesn’t only cater to kids’ happiness with exciting features, but also to parents’ privacy with the availability of family interconnecting rooms!
The 2-Bedroom Suite is the perfect retreat for families; it is spacious, airy and sure does not disappoint! You can even opt for one with a balcony.

5. Family holiday stay made in heaven: Conrad Bali
Luxury, romance, family fun, magnificent ocean views and outstanding facilities are what you can expect with a stay at Conrad Bali. An unforgettable experience for the whole family!
Located in Nusa Dua, in the southern tip of Bali, you are close to the island’s most beautiful beaches as well as the famous Jimbaran Bay where you can go for a family seafood feast in the evening.
The Deluxe Family Room can house a family of five, and is spacious and luxurious, complete with interconnecting rooms if you have a larger family.
When you wake up in the morning, soak up the morning sun and gaze at the calming ocean view from the private balcony. The room is fully equipped with an LCD satellite TV with a video player and speedy wifi, and the marble bathrooms are fitted with large soaking bathtubs where you can relax in at the end of the day.
And of course, you must bring the little ones along – kids up to 12 years old are treated to complimentary breakfast, lunch and dinner from the children’s menu when dining together with their parents. The resort also features a wonderful Kid’s Club where the 3 to 12-year-olds can happily play at for free.
While the kids are kept busy, it’s time for you to enjoy some well-deserved quality time with your partner. Indulge a pampering massage at the onsite Jiwa Spa, or go for a fitness workout at their Yoga Session!
Conrad’s Family Connection is a perfect tailored package for families, including two interconnecting Deluxe Rooms, daily breakfast for two, one-time lunch or dinner for two, 5 hours of nanny service (while you are enjoying a romantic dinner by the sea, perhaps?) and airport transfer.
6. Your very own theme park – Holiday Inn Bali Benoa
Sure, plenty of hotels have connecting rooms, but few are as tailored for family fun as Holiday Inn Bali Benoa’s Tanjung Family Connecting Rooms.
Not only are the rooms fitted with fun beddings that are sure to tickle your kids’ fancy, the little ones will even have special bathroom amenities prepared just for them.
On days when you feel like staying in, the family can gather in front of the wall-mounted TV and enjoy a quiet movie night together.
But, we doubt you’ll ever want to “stay in” at this hotel – not when there’s lots of fun waiting out there for you!

Holiday Inn has a whooping total of four pools, including one with an outdoor jacuzzi and a gorgeous pool. Children will love the kids’ pool – how could they not when it even comes with a slide and fountains?
Think it’s too hot to be out there all day at the pools, getting burnt into ash? The hotel’s Resort Centre comes with a library, Games Zone and computers that will keep the rowdiest kid busy in a comfortable environment.
The littlest ones will also get the chance to learn how falling into a pit is something to celebrate, at the Kids’ Club’s humongous ball pit.
And while your children are learning independence in the best way possible, you’ll be making some great memories at the beach, where you can indulge in a game of volleyball or soccer.
And that’s not even all that this place has to offer. Check out the Daily Activity Programme Board for more fun experiences that the whole family can enjoy.
With a hotel like this, why would you ever pay to enter an amusement park again?
7. For families who want to move it move it – Ramada Bintang Bali Resort
Are your kids hyperactive little monsters? Are you a hyperactive big monster?
If there’s any place in Bali that could drain the energy out of you and still leave you feeling super satisfied, it’s got to be Ramada Bintang Bali Resort.
Set your kids loose at the Panda Kids’ Club, and watch them tumble into bed obediently at the end of each day. The kids’ club is jam-packed with fun activities like ring toss tournaments, Balinese dance lessons and even burger-eating competitions.
If you’ve got a kid who can be described with the word “glutton”, it’s time to let him go out there and make the family proud.
Don’t worry – parents won’t be left hanging high and dry while the little ones have all the fun. In fact, we reckon the competition for the title of “Most Happy Person in the World” will be a close one.
Activities such as scuba diving lessons, yoga, bicycle tours and many more are available at the Health Club from 7:30am to 4pm every day.
After you’re done here, you won’t just be tired – you might be able to become the next triathlon champion.
When you can’t keep up, the hotel’s large swimming pool – along with a waterfall and jacuzzi – are ready for you to spend a relaxing time with your kids.
The hotel’s rooms also offer spectacular garden views, perfect for a quiet day in.
What, you’re still up for more? Simply walk a short distance to Discovery Mall and Waterbom Bali; this definitely isn’t a place where you’ll have time to get bored.
8. Satisfy your competitive streak – Kuta Paradiso Hotel
At Kuta Paradiso Hotel, you’ll be kept busy all day winning (or at least, trying to win).
The hotel’s rooms might be comfortable, and some even offer gorgeous views of the free-form pool and tropical scenery below, but you definitely won’t be standing up on your balcony looking down.
Not when daily pool activities are waiting for you to slay all your competitors, and win some great prizes while you’re at it!

Challenges of all kinds can be found going on beside the pool – Chopstick Challenges, Best Shooter competitions, Ping Pong Tournaments…
It’s time to prove that you are the very best, that no one ever was. You’ll also win some prizes while you’re at it, and we would never reject any freebies that come our way.
Thankfully, you won’t have to bear the title of Irresponsible Parent as well, because Kuta Paradiso offers your kids the very best care and fun at Mickey Kids’ Club.

Children from 5 to 12 years old have complimentary access to the club, where they’ll have a blast with face painting, movie times and plenty of other activities.

When you return as a proud winner, the family can have a celebratory dinner at the hotel’s restaurants, and bite into some yummy seafood or Japanese cuisine.
Or, you could head to all the shopping and fun spots right next door at Kuta’s most happening area, and continue to be a winner at bargaining, bowling, and Tourist Who Had the Best Time in Bali.
Note: Interconnecting rooms availability can only be guaranteed upon arrival.
9. Stuff yourself (with food and entertainment) – Patra Jasa Bali Resort & Villas (from USD $134)
Eating isn’t all about eating at Patra Jasa Bali Resort & Villas. Here, eating can be a form of art as well.
Themed dinner nights are available on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Ranging from Fisherman Nights and Balinese Nights to the fusion East Meets West Nights and Barbeque Nights, all your meals will be accompanied by fascinating performances.
Special dinners are also organised according to various festive occasions, so if you’re dropping by Bali during Christmas or Easter, you definitely won’t want to miss out on them.
Luckily for you, all the calories that you stuff yourself with here can be easily worked off.

Complimentary activities, such as Water Volleyball, Ketupat Making and Pillow Fighting, are available at the hotel’s Main Pool every single day.
Kids will also be able to have their share of fun at the Kids’ Club, where they’ll do all kinds of things from colouring to frog hunting.
Eat, sleep, wake up, eat, sleep… usually, this would be the dream life. But at Patra Jasa, you can eat, have fun, sleep, wake up, eat, and have fun again.
Better yet, the sleeping will be done in the Deluxe Family Room, which consists of two adjoined Deluxe Rooms.
With 43 sqm of spacious comfort and sliding doors that lead out to a scenic garden, we reckon this is the true dream life.
10. Water babies’ fun haven – Prama Sanur Beach Bali
If splashing around the pool or sea for a whole day is your family’s idea of fun, then Prama Sanur Beach Bali could be your hotel of choice.

The hotel’s partnership with Rip Curl School of Surf gives your children the chance to enjoy surfing lessons with the renowned surf school. Just a few steps away from the hotel is the beach, where plenty of watersport activities are also available for that fun day out on the beach.

Prama Sanur also has two beautiful pools for the adults to relax in (along with a swim-up pool bar). There’s also a Splash Zone pool for children, complete with waterslides that will keep them occupied for days.
If you feel like stepping away from the water, there are also plenty of on-land activities that families can do together, including basketball, tennis, cooking classes, yoga and many more.
And if you’d like to take some time to relax and unwind by yourself at the spa, just drop your kids off at the kids’ club.

It’s hard to imagine your kids not loving this place when it has a kids’ pool with a 56-metre Caterpillar Splash water slide and a Water Fun Zone.
We doubt you’d hate it either, especially when you’re chilling out at the adults’ pool and lazy pool, or downing a cool cocktail at the swim-up pool bar.
Kids will love the Enchanted Garden-themed Kupu-Kupu Kiddies’ Club, which has a programme that fully makes use of the Water Fun Zone.
It also includes activities like Watermelon Eating Contests, Highest Splashing Contests and Kids Treasure Hunts. Every kid likes to make a mess, and here, they can do it with no fear.
