The number one question before we travel to Bali is what things to do in Bali with Kids? We often find when staying in villas or hotels in Bali without kids clubs, that Charlotte loves playing at the different play centres that are available to all. She loves the interaction with the other kids and has made great friends. Bali resorts with kids clubs can be expensive but the following options can help out if you choose to stay in a villa or cheaper hotel. Most mentioned below would suit younger kids under 6 years but check out the websites to see if it might suit your older kids too. As is the case in Australia, be sure to take socks with you to indoor play centres or they can be purchased quite cheaply at each place.
RECOMMENDED BY US
Such a great place in Sanur for young kids to have some fun in air conditioned comfort. The on site cafe does good coffee and snacks with free Wifi making it a great place to let the kids run wild for a couple of hours. I was really impressed with the cleanliness of the place with hand sanitiser and temperatures checked with an ear thermometer on arrival.
The Garden Kids Club in Canggu is a fabulous place to leave the kids in very capable hands for a couple of hours. Charlotte loved playing in the indoor space and we returned on the Saturday to explore the outside area. The on site cafe Sprout also has delicious food and Wifi.
Back in 2013 when the Cubbyhouse kids club was located at Semara Resort, Charlotte had a fun couple of hours playing and painting. It has since moved to Canggu Club and is a great indoor option for kids aged 2-12yrs. Kids under 2 are allowed but must be accompanied by a parent and not a nanny.
