THINGS COME AND GO, BUT MEMORIES LAST A LIFETIME. PLAN A FAMILY HOLIDAY OF A LIFETIME AND HEAD TO WONDERFUL INDONESIA TO MAKE MEMORIES YOU’LL TREASURE FOREVER
Bali has long been a favourite family destination, and for good reason. Stunning weather, beautiful beaches and landscapes, exquisite food and all the culture, relaxation and adventure you can handle. Whether you do everything together as a family or divide and conquer, one thing’s for sure: there’s something for everyone in Bali.
INDULGE YOUR SENSES
If day-long spa treatments, massages and yoga are your tribe’s idea of heaven, Bali beckons. Beauty seekers should try a lulur - a body exfoliation with spices and ground coconut husks, or a cream bath - a 30-minute head and shoulder massage followed by a hair conditioning treatment. Foodie families can try a cooking course in a traditional village compound. Try “Dapur Bali Mula” with Hindu Priest and part-time Chef Yudi in Les Village, Buleleng Region. While you’re there discover janggu – a mouth numbing root used in Balinese salads and unknown elsewhere. Retail therapy abounds in the homeware boutiques of Seminyak and the new art and antique boutique Toko Kim Hin in Canggu.
ADVENTURE AND THRILLS
Get active and hike Mt Batur for sunrise; go off the beaten track and swim at a waterfall like Aling-aling in the Buleleng area. Head to the hills for some two-wheeled dirt bike action and to enjoy dramatic terrain from black volcanic soil to beaches, jungles to rice paddies. Surfers should try the break at Keramas in East Bali, or take a three day detour and head to Lombok. Check out Ekas and Selong Belanak. Or cool the kids off in the water parks of Kuta and Canggu.
BEFORE YOU GO
We have a few handy tips to make the planning phase easier. Use a travel agent to take care of the details like booking flights, tours and accommodation. They can find you great deals and save you considerable time. Consider villa accommodation - it’s great for families. Some comfortably fit up to four families, most have a private pool and you have space to relax and hang out. Chefs, yoga, massage, drivers, tours; everything can be brought to you. If you stay in a hotel, ask for adjoining rooms so you can move between them. Consider hiring a van so you have a driver on standby and you won’t waste time negotiating. Ask them to pick you up from the airport when you arrive. Finally, try something different. Explore new places, try new things and make memories you’ll cherish of your incredible holiday experiencing the magic of Bali and Wonderful Indonesia.
