We have found the ultimate Bali family villa! Villa Joju Bali was designed by a Bali loving family for parents and kids to enjoy especially families with younger kids. We spent 3 nights at this gorgeous Canggu villa in October 2019 and can’t wait to share with you all of our photos and videos of our stay. For more photos and details about Villa Joju Bali check out their website. It includes a floor plan plus all the details of what the rate per night includes.

Villa Joju Bali Pool and Gardens
The gardens are perfect for the kids to run around and the pool a great depth for the whole family. There is a shallow section for babies and toddlers plus the pool gentle slops to a deeper depth for the older kids. A complimentary pool fence can be organised like the one that we had for our stay. It was very sturdy and the pool gate difficult for the kids to get in. The fish spa was a favourite for the whole family with lots of squeals of delight as the tiny fish nibbled at our feet!
Villa Joju Bali Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The bedrooms and bathrooms are pure luxury. I’m going to make a big call, they are the best beds I have ever slept in Bali! The sheets were of the highest quality and the beds extra comfy. International charging points, WIFI that works well in each bedroom, a great sized wardrobe and block out curtains. Each of the king bedrooms also had a safe in the wardrobe.
Kids bedroom next to the master suite
It’s not often that I find it hard to get the kids to leave their bedroom in Bali but Villa Joju’s giant kids room did just that! The bunk beds were extra comfy and big enough teenagers. The bedroom slept 6 kids and the doors either side of the room were locked with a key. The only access point to the room was through the master suite bedroom making it extra safe with the kids. The trundle beds can also be moved to other bedrooms if the kids would prefer to sleep with their parents.
The range of toys and books meant that this bedroom also became the kids very own playroom during the day. Air conditioning kept the room a great temperature and there was a night light for when the kids went to bed.
Master Suite Bedroom
The master suite is located adjacent to the kids bedroom and the media room. It has the largest bathroom of the villa and I spent a lot of time chilling out in there and even enjoyed a bath once the kids were in bed.
This bedroom is located upstairs and has the most amazing views over the villa and Canggu. The floor to ceiling window brings the outside in and the bathroom has a beautiful stone bath to enjoy.
Located on the ground floor this bedroom has the most gorgeous bathtub with a view up into the sky.
And finally the green bedroom that is located on the ground floor close to the fish spa end of the garden. The green bathroom is similar to the blue bedroom en-suite and has a gorgeous stone bathtub.
Villa Joju Bali Living Spaces
There are so many different living spaces in Villa Joju that you can always find a quiet spot even with the kids around! The sunken lounge was one of our favourite spots in the villa. It was great to read a book or sit and chat about our day. The air conditioned media room located next to the master bedroom was a place the kids liked to go to chill out mid afternoon after they had fun in the pool. We could log into our Netflix account and they could watch a movie of their choice. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need and even included a first aid kit. Watching sunrise from the upstairs deck made me forget very quickly about the 5am wake ups from Mason!

Food and Drinks at Villa Joju Bali
To be honest you never have to leave Villa Joju! You can organise Sri, the villa chef, to cook the most delicious meals. We enjoyed a BBQ dinner one night and a selection of Asian dishes another night. Ayu sent us the villa menu prior to our stay so we could have a look through and work out what we would like to eat. They had fantastic kid meal options that were both yummy and healthy. This was especially great with Mason as we could order exactly what we knew he would eat!
The staff organised drinks in the fridge that we requested like Bintangs, wine and juices. We paid for these drinks and the staff would deliver them to us while we relaxed poolside. The kitchen was free for us to use as well and we stocked up with supplies from the local mini-mart for those times that the kids were hungry between meals.
We loved having breakfast cooked each morning, the kids loved the pancakes and fruit while us adults enjoyed a plate of eggs and bacon. Coffee was delivered to us prior to breakfast while we relaxed in the sunken lounge.
Villa Joju Bali Staff
As you can tell by now we had an amazing stay at Villa Joju. The interiors, pool and gardens were just so beautiful but the one aspect that made our stay perfect was the staff.
The villa is fully staffed during the day from 7am-11pm but it never felt intrusive as they have their own staff area. This made it super easy to get help with booking a taxi or asking any questions we had but not feel like we had staff around us all day. At night from 11pm-7am there is a security guard to make sure the villa stays secure and if you have any issues during the night.
Ayu, the villa manager, is so lovely and easy to chat to. She will literally organise anything you need. She kept a detailed record of groceries that were purchased by the staff during our stay and we then could just pay her cash.
The staff did such a great job of decorating the villa for Charlotte’s birthday and organising for Marshall from Paw Patrol to bring in her cake from Poule De Luxe. I feel very blessed to have met such lovely people and I’m already planning the next time I can get back to stay at the villa!
Villa Joju Bali Neighbourhood
We loved the area around Villa Joju and found lots of places around the villa. There are restaurants, spas, mini marts, ATMs, money changers and laundromat all within walking distance. A short drive from the villa were places like Parklife Bali, Finns Recreation Club, Milk and Madu, Bali Equestrian Centre, Finns Beach Club and Cafe Del Mar. The location was also easy to get to Seminyak and is about a 45 minute drive from the airport.
We loved our stay at Villa Joju Bali so much and can’t wait to visit again. If you too would like to stay at Villa Joju or Villa Joju Alit or perhaps you have a large group that needs both villas, check out their website with all of the details and prices on this beautiful villa. If you would like to receive a discount or find out prices for use of only a couple of bedrooms, contact the villa direct via email and mention Rolling Along With Kids.
