Bali Family Holiday October 2019

Bali Family Holiday

Our family holiday to Bali and Singapore in October 2019 was so much fun! We spent 2 nights in Singapore then 12 nights in Bali staying in Nusa Dua, Seminyak and Canggu. We share below the things we did day to day including our short time in Singapore.

For more detailed reviews of the resorts we stayed in and the activities we got up to, see the blog posts below that are listed in order of where we stayed.

Wednesday 2nd October: Flying to Singapore & Furama Riverfront Singapore

Once again we chose to park our car at Ace Airport Parking near Melbourne Airport as we always have a good experience with them and the kids know the routine. It helps to keep the stress down with Mason knowing that he has a booster seat set up in the van and we don’t have to contain him like we do on the bus from the long term car park.

We arrived at 8am as our flight to Singapore was due to depart at 11:10am. Allowing plenty of time is important to us so we don’t have to rush. Toilet stop then I headed up the lift to level 1 to get Mason’s hidden disability lanyard. If you would like to know more about this program at Melbourne Airport check out this link. Other airports in Australia also have programs if you have family members that need extra assistance.

We then headed to check in with Jetstar at their desk as I had asked for disability access like I did in April. Ear muffs on, Mason strapped into a wheelchair, bags checked in and we were ready to tackle immigration. We were able to take the disability line and it took us 10 minutes to get through to the duty free area! Not sure the hidden disability lanyard helped that much but the wheelchair helps so much to keep Mason contained and to prevent meltdowns.

We then found a quiet spot looking out over the planes to have a coffee and food before we boarded on time. I had chosen the upfront seats on the Jetstar Dreamliner plane and boarded first. The Jetstar staff were so lovely and Mason had them all charmed ;-) When the 4 of us are travelling together I select 2 window and middle seats. Jed and Charlotte sit in the more forward row and then Mason and I sit behind them. This helps prevent Mason upsetting the person in front by kicking the seat. We were very lucky on this flight to not have anyone sitting next to Mason and I so we had 3 seats for the 2 of us!

The flight left about 20 minutes late and I had ordered food as the flight is longer to Singapore. The kids loved their mac and cheese plus my salad was nice! The flight went quite smoothly with the Plane Play bags a hit and the kids travel journals including My Awesome Bali Adventure and My Big Adventure Bali edition. iPads also kept them entertained and I also had to swipe my credit card so Mason could use his screen in his seat.

We landed about 15 minutes late in to a wet Singapore and were met at the door of the plane by a lovely airport worker with a wheelchair to escort Mason through the airport. He was so nice and guided us to where we needed to go. From the time we landed to collecting our bags it took 30 minutes. We found the taxi rank and took us about 1 hour to drive to Furama Riverfront Hotel. The taxi was quite good value and it cost $20SGD for the trip.

Arriving at Furama Riverfront Hotel we made our way to the temporary lobby as the main lobby was undergoing renovations. We were allocated room 1003 in a Theme Room and the kids loved the underwater theme.

After we settled into the room we headed downstairs to the Square Restaurant for dinner and sat right next to the kids area. It worked a treat as we could enjoy our dinner while the kids had a play once they had finished their food. Ice cream and popcorn for dessert and then we were all ready for bed!

Thursday 3rd October: Furama Riverfront Singapore

Mason obviously didn’t get the time zone difference memo, awake at 3:30am Singapore time! So Jed and Charlotte could get some more sleep I went for a walk with him to the local 7 Eleven that was open 24/7 according to Google maps. I wanted to get a local SIM card and had read that in Singapore this could be done at 7 Eleven’s. It was easy to do, I just took my passport with me and Mason loved his kinder surprise ;-)

Charlotte and Jed woke up at 5:45am so we got ready to make it to breakfast for 6am open time, I love an early breakfast when travelling with kids ;-) Breakfast was good but not awesome and we did miss the usual Bali friendly smiles.

Next it was pool time and the kids loved the unicorn floaties! The weather was perfect for swimming at 7am and I also love an early opening pool.

While the rest of the family chilled out back in the room I went in search for a good almond milk coffee. Just over the river I found Common Man Coffee Roasters and the coffee was great! It would want to be for the price of $7SGD ;-)

I used the Comfort Del Gro app to order a taxi to take us over to Sentosa Island. The app was so easy to use and the prices were good to have the comfort of a taxi to drive us around. We could have caught the metro but Mason can often have meltdowns so taxis definitely work better for us! For the ride from Furama Riverfront to near Kidzania on Sentosa Island it cost $18.90SGD. This included the entrance fee to Sentosa.

We arrived at Kidzania at the opening time of 10am. We were working with Klook to explore Kidzania and the staff let us know that there was a huge amount of school groups that had just arrived too. They did suggest that we come back after 12:30pm but this wasn’t possible for us as we had made the trip especially across!

Kidzania is a indoor mini-city for kids to have a go at independently trying out different occupations like being a doctor, movie proudcer, fire fighter etc.

It was very, very busy at Kidzania and I recommend not trying to go when there are a large amount of school groups. Mason coped very well with how loud and busy it was but sitting in a line for up to 45 minutes was not our idea of a great way to spend our day! The kids did manage to have a go at being a pilot which was a great amount of fun and I was able to accompany Mason to guide him through it.

The lines had definitely gone down when we went to leave!

After we had been there for 2 hours we decided to leave and get some ice cream. It was hot and staying on Sentosa looked like a lot of fun! We didn’t have a chance this trip but would come back another time to explore Sentosa more. We jumped on the free Sentosa Express at Beach Station and took it over to the mainland to VivoCity Station. A fun spot with lots of shops and even more things for the kids to do.

On arriving back to Furama Riverfront we enjoyed lunch at the Kintamani Indonesian Restaurant. The food was yummy and it was getting us excited for the Bali food to come!

After lunch the kids had a chill out in the room with Jed and I went in search for a money changer. I walked up to Chinatown and easily found one then tucked into some hawker food. This was the cheap way to enjoy Singapore!

We then headed over to Gardens By the Bay for the kids to have a play in the Far East Organization Children’s Garden. They have a fantastic playground with a splash park to cool down. We hadn’t pre-ordered tickets to go in the domes as I wasn’t sure how Mason would go and then when we got there the lines were long!

We took a $10SGD taxi back to Furama Riverfront and ordered pizza via the Chope App. Mason was too tired to go out and Charlotte and I were keen to get back to the light show at Gardens By The Bay. We had the taxi drop us off at The Promontory on Marina Boulevard so we could check out the light show at the Marina Bay Sands at 8pm then we walked through to the Gardens By the Bay for the 8:45pm light show. It was beautiful and a great thing to share with Charlotte.

Friday 4th October: Flying to Bali & Novotel Nusa Dua

We managed a 5am sleep in and headed down to breakfast at 6:45am. Similar breakfast as the morning before and the kids were kept happy with pancakes. While the kids went to the pool with Jed, I went on my morning walk to explore and find coffee. This time I headed over to Tiong Bahru Market and had a look around at the food and clothes for sale. A great spot for a cheap meal and market shopping.

Next I found a strong but another expensive coffee at Marcel which was right next to the famous Tiong Bahru Bakery.

Back to the room to pack up and to take a few more photos and videos around the hotel.

We then walked over to Waka Waka Playground which is next door to the Furama Riverfront. We happen to choose to visit on a public holiday in Singapore for kids so it was chaos getting in! Once we were in the kids loved running around and playing. They have a cafe and even a party area out the back. I asked the staff to open up the ropes course area as we were there to help promote Waka Waka for Furama Riverfront and the kids loved the ropes course.

Once the kids had a snack we went back to the hotel to check out and make our way to Jewel at Changi Airport. It cost $21SGD to get a taxi to the airport and they drop you close to the entrance of Jewel. We checked our bags in at the kiosks and then went for a walk around Jewel taking in the beautiful waterfall in the centre. Lunch was at Coffee @ Works and set us back $100SGD but it was delicious!

We then walked across to Terminal 1 and found the Jetstar counter where we had to get the final boarding pass for Jed. They do this before you make your way through immigration if you have used the kiosks at Jewel. Getting through immigration was easy and then we found a playground for the kids while we chilled before our flight.

The flight to Bali with Jetstar was easy and on time. Flying over Bali as the sun set was beautiful and the quick flight time was awesome!

When we landed I remembered that we had organised VIP Airport Fast Track with Klook. What a difference this made as Mason was getting very tired by the time we landed. You can check out our full experience at the link here.

We had a Bali SIM card ready to pick up from a Klook representative and our Klook driver was also waiting for us with a sign to take us to the Novotel Nusa Dua and the drive took about 40 minutes. Arriving at Novotel Nusa Dua we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom pool apartment which was huge! The kids were getting tired so we ordered room service before getting to bed early.

Saturday 5th October: Novotel Nusa Dua

Mason actually slept in this morning until 5:30am ;-) The bonus of having a 2 bedroom apartment with living area is that Jed and Charlotte could easily keep sleeping even though he was awake. Around 6am we decided to go for a stroll around the gardens.

Such beautiful gardens

It was straight into the apartments pool when we got back and the other 2 were still sleeping! Once they woke up we were straight to breakfast. I had heard mixed reviews about the breakfast at the Novotel but we found it had everything we needed. There were plenty of tables when we arrived at 7am but I noticed at 9:30am there was a line up to be seated.

Back to the room for a swim again in our private pool and then it was off to explore the main pool at the resort. Love the pool area at the Novotel, huge pools and a shallow area for the little ones in the main pool plus a toddler pool near the kids club.

After a swim the kids went back to the room with Jed and had chill out time. I used this time to go for a walk out the back gate of Novotel Nusa Dua. It was great to find a great range of shops including a laundry, 24 hour minimart, spa and restaurants.

Our gorgeous nanny Monica arrived and the kids were so happy to see her. Berta our regular nanny was busy and we have used Monica previously and enjoyed her company too.

Great seeing Monica again

Next it was time to visit the Novotel Beach Club and it was easy to catch the short ride on the shuttle bus. The kids loved the ride in the bus and then were straight into the water. There was quite a strong undertow in the water so we didn’t let the kids go out far. The beach club was well set up with lounge chairs, restaurant and you could organise water sports that you were keen to do.

It was then back to the Novotel Nusa Dua for lunch by the pool. We all enjoyed our food but they did forget my dessert but brought it out promptly when I reminded them.

We were booked in for 6pm dinner at the beach club which was one of their theme nights and Saturday nights are BBQ on the beach. It was a beautiful night and the food was yummy! The kids especially loved the dessert ;-)

Sunday 6th October: Fun Wheels Bali, Hyatt Regency Brunch & FuramaXclusive Ocean Beach Seminyak

I was looking forward to sunrise breakfast on the beach and was hoping it would be good weather for us! It was a beautiful morning and we made sure we were ready at the lobby at 5:55am to be driven to the beach club. The sunrise was gorgeous and the kids loved having a play in the shallows while we waited for our breakfast to be ready at 6:30am. There was so much food and we were all so full! Such a great experience and highly recommend if you can get a good sunrise!

After our huge breakfast we went back to our room to pack everything up and for the kids to have a swim in our private pool. While we were busy, they could have time to use their My Big Adventure Bali books. So handy when you are trying to get stuff done!

We met our driver Dewa from Bali Smart Tours at the lobby at 9:10am. We drove across to Sanur and arrived at Fun Wheels Bali near Mertasari Beach at 9:45am.

We all had a great time at Fun Wheels, the pedal carts were awesome for the kids then we went for a ride around the village. Sunday was a great day to go as there were lots of locals using the carts as well but it would have been quieter through the week.

After we had spent 2 hours at Fun Wheels we drove to Hyatt Regency for Sunday Brunch. It was great to see the beautiful gardens once again and the brunch was very yummy! Such a huge selection of food and directly on Sanur beach. The dessert selection was amazing and Charlotte went back for 3 trip chocolate mousses!

Once we had finished brunch Jed, Monica and the kids had a swim in the pool while I had a look around the resort with the public relations lady. She showed me the kids club that is being built and the outside playground was finished. It was a great space with a very cool pirate ship! The kids club room was built but nothing was inside. They are hoping it will be completed in the next few months. We also had a look at a range of rooms, the temporary kids club and the spa. Such a beautiful space, I didn’t want to leave!

After I had a quick swim to cool off, it was hot, I called Dewa to come and pick us up to take us across to FuramaXclusive Ocean Beach Resort in Seminyak. I say Seminyak losely as it is actually located on the border of Seminyak and Legian. We checked in at the temporary lobby as the main lobby was being renovated and shown to our spacious apartment.

The apartment had everything we needed and lots of space for the kids. It wasn’t a 5 star room but the kids didn’t care! Jed and I both found it a bit weird that people could see into our apartment if we didn’t have the blinds down.

After chilling out in the room we then ventured across the street to the watch the sunset on Seminyak Beach. A beautiful way to end a great day and we enjoyed a drink from local beach vendors. After the sun had set, we walked the short distance to Coffee Club Legian and had a yummy dinner.

Mason was up early again so we went for a walk along the beach and then wandered up to Coffee Cutters on Jl Werkudara. The coffee was strong and good plus Mason loved his babycino.

Jed and Charlotte were awake when we arrived back so we went to breakfast. I was quite impressed with the range of food, plenty for the kids to eat and fresh croissants.

After breakfast Monica arrived for the day and the kids were keen to check out Waka Waka Playground. It is located right next to the breakfast area but we had to wait until it opened. Once we got in the kids had a blast! So much fun running around and testing out all the play equipment. See more pictures in our Furama review.

After running around the kids needed to cool down so we headed to Furama’s pool. The splash area is a lot of fun but the main pool was very deep so you could only relax and swim around with a pool noodle supplied. Our kids loved it at ages 5 and 8 years but they can swim really well and are confident in the water.

Next we had lunch at the Deck Restaurant and everyone really enjoyed their meals. A huge menu to choose from, the kids menu was a lot of fun for the kids with names like ‘Donald Duck Fish and Chips’.

Next Charlotte and I visited the resorts spa and it was such a great massage! Highly recommend the Ocean Beach Spa and you can visit as an outside guest too.

Jed and I then went for a walk up to Bintang Supermarket while Monica looked after the kids in the room.

  • Bintang Supermarket Seminyak burnt down on 15/01/2020. Hopefully they can rebuild!

The streets were pretty quiet but it was extra hot! We had photos booked with DAR Photography and met Didit at 5:45pm at Double 6 Beach. He was fantastic to deal with and he took some great photos!

The kids were pretty tired so we cooked up some pasta and pesto in our apartment and Monica put them to bed while we enjoyed dinner at the Deck Restaurant. We had the best waiter Wisi and both had great meals plus happy hour cocktails.

Tuesday 8th October: Climbing Mt Batur & Canggu Villa Merah

It was an extra early morning for me as I was being picked up at 2am to go climb Mt Batur. In our van was myself, as Jed stayed back with the kids, and a couple from South Korea. It was supposed to be a 2 hour drive but our van broke down in the middle of nowhere about half way to Mt Batur! Our driver frantically tried calling people but at 3am that proves a bit tricky. In the end he waved down a bus and gave the driver some rupiah.

As we arrived later than expected, we were driven to the halfway point of Mt Batur. This meant we avoided the first hour of walking on the road! The climb was hard but not impossible, I would think that kids above 10 years old would be ok at giving it a go. The climb to the sunrise point took about 50 minutes and we decided to watch the sunrise there rather than doing the final climb to the busy top of Mt Batur. Tip: Take a light jacket as it gets fresh on top!

The sunrise was beautiful but just after it fully rose, the clouds came in and we couldn’t see a thing! Very lucky that the clouds held off for sunrise. The descent took about 40 minutes and we were picked up by the car at the half way point.

We then drove back to Seminyak via a coffee plantation. It took approximately 30 minutes to drive to the plantation north of Ubud then a further 2 hours back to Seminyak due to the bad traffic. I was well and truly ready for a big breakfast and coffee at Sacred Ground when I got there at 11:30am.

Really good coffee at Sacred Ground

Jed had been getting all our bags packed while they waited for me to arrive back as we needed to check out at 12pm. Our driver Made arrived, he works with the Epo Bali Driver team, and our next stop was Canggu Villa Merah in Berawa, Canggu. The traffic wasn’t too bad and it took us 30 minutes to drive there. I love villas and it was so nice to have some space and spread out!

Not long after we got to the villa, Jed’s sister Lauren and her daughter Ava arrived. It was so great to see them and they had an easy flight across with Jetstar from Melbourne.

Cousins happy to see each other!

After they had settled in and enjoyed a swim I went for a wander around to Canggu Plaza and Canggu Station to get some supplies. Canggu Station had a good range of groceries but they weren’t the cheapest. Right next door to the villa at Canggu Plaza was a spa, pizza place, Savage cafe and ATMs. Across the road from Canggu Plaza was a medical centre.

We rose early to be picked up by Alex from Epo Bali Drivers at 6:30am to go surfing with Santai Surf School on Double 6 Beach. It would have been easier to do it why we were staying at the Furama but Charlotte was keen for Ava to go surfing too. The best part about driving early morning is the traffic is good. It only took us 20 minutes from Canggu Villa Merah to Double 6 Beach. While we had a surf Alex waited around to pick us up and take us back. This was the second time the kids had surfed with Santai Surf School and it was great to also meet Henney, Gede’s wife and co-owner of the surf school.

Traffic on the way back was not as great but still only took us 30 minutes. It was time to relax by the pool and read a book! Who am I kidding, I’m terrible at sitting for very long especially in Bali so the girls and I jumped in a taxi to drive to Poule De Luxe in Batu Belig. A French patisserie with the most delicious treats, it was a pleasure to come and enjoy their hospitality.  I also organised the design for Charlotte’s birthday cake for Saturday.

Lauren was keen to get a SIM card so we drove to a shop on Batu Belig that stocked them. Also a great spot to get chargers or anything else you may have lost or forget to bring on your trip to Bali.

When we got back it was time for my hair creme bath at Esthetic Day Spa right next to the villa in Canggu Plaza. The girls also had their hair braided but it wasn’t the best job, don’t think they do it very often! Lauren said her massage was good.

It was looking like it was going to be a good sunset so we ordered a couple of taxi’s via the Bluebird App to take us to Finns VIP Beach Club. Platinum Membership cards were complimentry with the villa which allowed us no minimum spend on a day bed and included towels. Such a great bonus! The sunset was amazing and we had a great time swimming in the family pool and enjoyed a drink each.

We had a booking at Ulekan for dinner but Monica and Mason stayed back at the villa as he was so tired. The food was so great at Ulekan and the Balinese dance show was beautiful. A great night out and highly recommended.

Thursday 10th October: Bali Buddies Village Experience & Canggu Villa Merah

An early morning wake up for me as Mason woke at 5am so I took the chance to go for a walk once it was daylight and explore what was nearby. This would have to be my favourite time of the day. Solo walking around the Bali streets with no agenda but seeing what I come across. I walked up Jl Pantai Berawa and ended back at Milk and Madu for a coffee and breakfast.

Arriving back us girls got ready to be picked up by the driver from Bali Buddies to drive north to a village for the Bali Buddies Village Experience. The driver had some issues getting to us but a replacement driver arrived at 9:45am. Such an amazing day and highly recommend. Check out our review for all the details.

We arrived back at the villa at 4:30pm and had a relax before Jed, Lauren and I caught a taxi to Billy Ho for dinner. Monica, our Bali nanny, stayed back at the villa and ordered pizza from Trattoria next door to the villa. Billy Ho was fantastic with yummy food and drinks plus really good service.

Friday 11th October: Splash Water Park & Villa Joju Bali

As breakfast wasn’t included at Canggu Villa Merah, we walked to Milk and Madu with the kids for breakfast. I love that they open early and the playground helped to keep the kids entertained while we waited for food. The kids menu is great value and the food is always yummy.

We had organised a late checkout at 2pm with Canggu Villa Merah so we used the Finns Platinum Membership cards to visit Splash Water Park. This gave us free entry to the park, a towel each and a discount on food/drinks plus a spa discount. The kids had an absolute blast once again, the food was delicious and I enjoyed a pool side massage.

After arriving back from Splash we packed up ready to move villas. We arrived at Villa Joju and there were many squeals of delight! This was the most amazing villa we had ever stayed in and we had 3 nights to enjoy it. The kids loved the jumping castle and fish spa plus it wasn’t long before they were jumping in the pool. We got to know the staff and were welcomed by the manager Ayu. She let us know all about the villa, times of breakfast and if we needed anything just to ask!

Prior to our stay we had organised to have a BBQ dinner at the villa. Ayu had provided us with a menu to choose what we wanted the chef to cook. We paid for the ingredients which for the 6 of us came to $80AUD. It was such a yummy dinner and even better that we didn’t have to leave the villa!

Saturday 12 October: Villa Joju Bali & Unicorn Cafe Bali

Today was Charlotte’s 9th birthday. Every year it also comes with reflection and thoughts to the Bali bombing victims.

We had so many things planned and the day began with another early rise from Mason. I didn’t mind as it was a beautiful sunrise and then we got to enjoy our first breakfast at Villa Joju. A coffee delivered to us as we relaxed in the sunken lounge, absolute bliss.

It was time to head back to Villa Joju and the staff had decorated the villa in traditional Balinese birthday decorations. I had organised all of our Bali nannies that we have used over the years to come to the villa and celebrate with Charlotte. Berta, Monica, Kadek S, Kadek W and Komang are such beautiful souls and it’s a pleasure knowing them. Charlotte’s birthday cake arrived and we had the mascot of the villa, Marshall from Paw Patrol deliver the cake. Was such a fun day and the staff had prepared a few nibbles for us to share.

Sunday 13th October: Villa Joju Bali & Parklife Bali

A slow and easy morning enjoying the villa. We then ordered a Bluebird Taxi via the app and drove to Parklife for a play. Such a fun spot for all ages, they have undercover slides, jumping pillow, toddler play area, cafe plus an AC dining area. Well worth getting a taxi to Parklife and we just let the girls at the front desk know when we needed them to order another taxi to get back to the villa.

When we got back to the villa the kids were keen to go back to Splash Water Park and Monica very kindly offered to take the kids for a couple of hours. As Villa Joju had Platinum Membership to Finns we once again had free entry, such a bonus! Lauren enjoyed a massage in her room and Jed and I had a wander down Jl Pantai Berawa. Jed had a massage at Jinah Bali Spa and said it was fantastic for the price! I had a coffee at Macan Cafe and dim sums at Dim Sum House while I waited.

Once the kids got back with Monica, Jed and I attempted to go to watch sunset at Naked Coconut but Mason wasn’t impressed so we had to abort that idea! Instead we enjoyed sunset by the pool, the joys of travelling with kids and at times you just have to be flexible! I put Mason down to bed early and then the rest of us went out for dinner at Macan Cafe. I had mentioned to the staff earlier that it was Charlotte’s birthday yesterday and they surprised her with a birthday dessert and sung her happy birthday! Lovely food and great service.

Monday 14th October: Villa Joju & Canggu Family Escapes

Mason once again woke me up early but I decided that it was a great morning for a walk around Canggu. I set off from Villa Joju, walked north along Jl Pantai Berawa then left onto Jl Karang Suwung which leads into Jl Tegal Sari. I then went over to Jl Raya Semat finishing up at Milk and Madu where I got a take away coffee and ordered a Go Jek motorbike back to the villa.

The girls wanted to experience a floating breakfast so the staff at Villa Joju made them the most lovely breakfast to enjoy in the pool. They actually ate all of it in the pool, I was sure they would get out after 2 minutes ;-)

I had organised for the ladies from Klhan Spa to come to the villa and rebraid the girls hair. I find having it done at the villa is so much easier, it gave me the chance to pop around to Billie’s for a shop and a coffee at Jikka, a cafe right near Villa Joju.

It was finally time to say goodbye to the beautiful staff at Villa Joju, they had made our stay the very best! A taxi had been called to take us to Canggu Family Escapes a villa located near Canggu Plaza once again.

On arriving at Canggu Family Escapes, we collected the key from the security staff and settled into the 3 bedroom villa. So family friendly, they have now made it even friendlier with the conversion of the playroom to a kids bedroom making it a 4 bedroom villa. The kids loved the unicorn floaties and I loved relaxing outside on the day bed.

Tuesday 15th October: Canggu Family Escapes

Our last full day in Bali and it was going to be a rest day with nothing planned! I was up early again so my morning walk took me past LV8 Resort, Berawa Beach, a look at the Haven Suites, walking up Gg Anggrek and I stopped for a coffee at the Daily Grind and had breakfast at Eighteengrams.
