Club Med Bali Review

Club Med Bali Reviews

Our stay at Club Med Bali in Nusa Dua was the first time we have stayed in Nusa Dua and the first time we have done All-Inclusive at a Bali resort. We loved our stay and to be honest, it is probably the first time I truly relaxed the whole trip! Club Med Bali was perfect for both adults and kids. Families are well looked after and the staff were all so much fun!

Club Med Bali Overview

There is only one way to explain the grounds at Club Med Bali, huge! I highly recommend taking a village tour on your first morning at Bali Club Med. This will help you understand where everything is and how the food/drinks work at the resort. Also where to find activities at certain times like the afternoon family fun event.

When you first get a quote from Club Med Bali it can seem expensive. But the value for money that Club Med inclusions offer definitely make up for this. I am a terrible at keeping to a budget on holidays, so it was nice to know that there wasn’t going to be a huge bill at the end! It was a fantastic place to stay.

I also love that kids up to the age of 18 get a discount when you book and that kids under 4 stay free! You can then choose if you want to pay for the kids under 4 to access the fantastic kids club or spend time with them, I love the flexibility of choosing!

Kids Pricing

  • Tots under 4 stay FREE
  • Kids from 4 to 11 are up to 40% off
  • Teens from 12 to 17 are up to 20% off

Also make sure you download the Club Med App to your phone for during your stay. The WIFI is strong throughout the resort so this is easy to do when you arrive. The App provided up to date information on what was happening at what times during your stay. They also had the bulletin posted for each day near the entrance to the buffet breakfast at Agung Restaurant.

Please note: All the details provided in this blog post were relevant during our stay in April 2019. Things may change but it will give you a general overview of what to expect.

Pools at Club Med Bali

There are 3 separate pools at Club Med Bali plus the splash area within the kids club area.

  • Main Pool
  • Adults Only Zen Pool
  • Spa Pool

Main Pool

9am-7pm a lifeguard on duty

Located near the lobby and Kintamani Bar, this is the place to have fun and cool off. A great pool for the kids, it is not deep so it’s easy for the kids to swim around. Features a toddler area for the younger ones to have a splash.

The main restaurant at Club Med Bali, this buffet style restaurant is where the buffet breakfast is held each morning from 7am. They have a huge range of foods and if you have any special dietary needs just chat to the chefs. Each night they have different themes for the dinner food to indulge in, check out the schedule above of what was on offer the week we stayed.

The Deck Lounge

We loved dining at this a la carte restaurant and I would always have a light early breakfast with the kids at Agung, then head to The Deck for another morning latte and breakfast. The dinner each night was amazing! You need to book for dinner at night but make sure you do as the food was delicious. You can choose to sit in the air conditioned areas or outside by the water features. We had some great times with Evie and Emmie from Mum Pack Travel, was so lovely meeting these 2 gorgeous girls x

This was the place to enjoy those delicious cocktails! The main bar area also has food at certain parts of the day. The food here tended to be more snack food to keep you going in between meals.

Club Med Bali Kids Club

The kids club at Club Med Bali was fantastic! So many things for the kids to do and you could also join in on the daily activities for just a period of time. I loved watching the kids have a go at the trapeze and archery.

Kids from 4 months to 17 years are catered for at Club Med Bali Kids Clubs

  • Baby Club: 4 to 23 months – at additional cost
  • Petit Club: 2 to 3 years – at additional cost
  • Mini Club: 4 to 10 years – included!
  • Passworld / Junior Club: 11 to 17 years – included!

The staff were amazing and I was very impressed with how the whole program was run. The kids club operates more like a day care, rather than roster of activities, as it includes all-day care (if you want it) nap time, food etc.

This was the kids club that my 2 kids that are aged 5 and 8 years used. So much fun and there was always something to do!

We always find it difficult with Mason to leave him at kids clubs as with his autism he can be extremely challenging at times. Club Med was perfect for this as he could participate in the trapeze and other activities with us watching him. All the staff were fantastic and often our nanny would take him for a play in the kids club room.

A great way for teens to make friends on holidays, the kids in this age group were free to choose from the activities in the resort. They had friendly staff members guide them to try different activities or to just hang by the pool.

Activities at Club Med Bali

There was always something to do at Club Med Nusa Dua! So many activities and we especially loved the Amazing Family Program that was scheduled each afternoon. One afternoon Mason walked out of our room to discover the gardens had been set up with jumping castles and slippery slides! So much fun x

The program is designed as surprise activities for parents and children to play together. They’re about ‘touch play’, learning about the local culture, and mixing with people from all over the world. Activities include: kite making and flying, treasure hunts, giant board games, family yoga, bubble party, Balinese offering making, and more.

Club Med Bali Shows

There was never a lack of entertainment for both the adults and kids at Club Med Bali. Every night there was a family show at the main stage at 8:15pm followed by a later show at 9:15pm. Easy access for prams and you could come and go as you pleased. They also had an on-site nightclub for the adults! Downstairs from the Agung Restaurant, you could party the night away after drinks at the Kintamani Bar.

Rooms at Club Med Bali

During our stay at Club Med Bali we stayed in the Interconnecting Deluxe Terrace Rooms. These rooms have so much space and were perfect for a family travelling together. These rooms can sleep up to 6 people and if you have 5 + kids or questions about the rooms, contact Club Med Bali directly.

The beds were really comfortable, international power points but only showers in both bathrooms. I loved the beautiful grassed terraces that our rooms opened out to. It was so easy walking to and from the pool. We stayed in rooms 2002 and 2003.

Club Med Bali Spa

So what else is there to do when the kids are being well looked after in the kids club, a massage of course! The Club Med Bali Spa is in a quiet location near the beach and I visited the spa twice, once for a 80 minute Balinese Massage and once for the Spa Discovery package which consisted of a massage and facial. Very relaxing and to give you an ideas of prices, sorry I forgot to take a picture of the price list as I was so relaxed, the 80 minute Balinese Massage was 1,000,000rp or approx. $100AUD including tax. The discount card when we checked in helped to make this cheaper.
