With an enviable reputation for blissful beaches and warm hospitality, Bali is an Asian destination filled with natural attractions for families. Offering the perfect mix of relaxation, culture and luxurious family-friendly hotels, Bali is a great choice for a luxury family beach holiday. Here, we recommend where to stay and what to do during your luxury family beach holiday to Bali…
Why Choose Bali For A Luxury Family Beach Holiday?
Bali is blessed with a bounty of experiences and offers buckets of fun for families. From superb hotel facilities, to cultural performances and Balinese dance lessons, wood-carving, songket-weaving and basket-weaving, children can be introduced to a myriad of culture through local music, vibrant painting and craft. In addition to these artistic programmes, watersports, tennis and cooking classes, families can catch their first wave together, visit a local temple, head to Ubud for a spiritual connection or splash out at the thrilling Waterbomb Bali. Boasting 22 slides, this aqua park oasis in the middle of the famous Kuta stretch is a great way to beat the heat and entertain the children on a fun day out.
With a wealth of large villa accommodation available for multi-generational holidays, and a geographical location perfect for an Asia tour finale, Bali is a destination with attractions on many fronts. Whether during the popular high season summer months of July and August, or during the festive period, there is something to appeal to every age group. For those travellers less concerned with the best weather and more interested in the world’s best waves, then Bali’s dry season, from May to October, is the time to visit the western side of the peninsula for serious aqua thrills.
