I recently had an amazing 4 day trip to Bali and stayed at Villa Bali Impian. However, this is not my usual review as.. I didn’t take the kids! That said, I thought I’d review it anyway as Bali is an easy kid friendly destination
I used http://www.balivillas.com/ a company I have used before. They have a wide range of villas all over Bali and varying in price. If you book early you get a 10% discount. Villas are fully staffed with villa manager, driver, chef and houseboys. There really is no need to lift a finger…
It’s a 4.5 hr flight from HK to Bali. We were met promptly by our driver and it took about 25 minutes to get to our villa. You have to buy a visa on arrival so make sure you either have $25 USD or rupiah equivalent as they don’t take credit card. The trick to this is to have one member of your party take the passports to go and buy the visa whilst the rest of you line up in immigration
This was a spacious 4 bed villa. I wouldn’t recommend for adults who want young kids in separate bedrooms as there aren’t any on the same level. There are lots of stairs and balconies. Each bed has an ensuite, two with glorious outdoor showers. 2 of the bedrooms are on top of each other, 1 bedroom is out by the entrance to the villa and the other is separated down some stairs by the pool. The pool is large and there are 6 sunloungers. There is ample lounge space, an outdoor dining area and the highlight, a sala with a pool table. The food was of a high standard and the staff outdid themselves with a bbq by our pool one night.
If you are staying in Jimbaran area, I recommend a trip to Jimbaran Bay for seafood on the beach. If you’re looking to pose and be seen (highly unlikely if you are travelling with your kids!) then head to Potatohead in Seminyak. We also enjoyed sunset cocktails at nearby Karma Kandara where you take a little lift down to the beach (free after 6pm). Beware though, drinks are pricey
