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 have stayed twice at Villa Joju, in October 2019 and August 2023. 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 is a great depth for the whole family. There is a shallow section for babies and toddlers plus the pool gently slopes to a deeper depth for the older kids.
A pool fence can be organized like the one that we had for our stay in 2019. It was very sturdy and the pool gate was difficult for the kids to get in. The fish spa was a favorite for the whole family with lots of squeals of delight as the tiny fish nibbled at our feet! The staff can also cover the Fish Spa if you are concerned about toddlers going for a splash.
Villa Joju Bali Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The bedrooms and bathrooms are pure luxuries. 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 for teenagers and even a husband after he was kicked out of the master bed in the middle of the night!
The kid’s bedroom sleeps 6 kids and the doors on 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 kid’s very own playroom during the day. Air conditioning kept the room at 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 kid’s bedroom and the media room. It has the largest bathroom in the villa and I spent a lot of time chilling out in there and even enjoyed a bath once the kids were in bed. The wardrobe has plenty of space for luggage and the air conditioning keeps the room at a great temperature.
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 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 favorite spots in the villa. The perfect spot to read a book or sit together as a family and chat.
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. Featuring the only TV in the villa, we could log into the Smart TV into our Netflix account and watch a movie of their choice.
The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need and even included a first aid kit. The powder room next to the kitchen was great for easy access to the toilet.
Watching the sunrise from the upstairs deck made me forget very quickly about the 5 a.m. wake-ups from Mason! A beautiful spot to sit back and enjoy a morning coffee or a drink as the sun goes down.

Food and Drinks at Villa Joju Bali
To be honest you never have to leave Villa Joju! You can organize 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 it 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 he would eat!
The staff organized 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 we enjoyed a plate of eggs and bacon. Coffee was delivered to us prior to breakfast while we relaxed in the sunken lounge.
Villa Joju Alit
Next door to Villa Joju is the lovely 4-bedroom Villa Joju Alit. The 2 villas are connected by a beautiful Balinese gate and each villa has a separate entrance gate.

The master bathroom features a king-size bed with an interconnecting door to the kid’s bedroom next door.
The kid’s bedroom features a bunk bed with twin beds underneath. The twin beds can be made into a king bed if you would prefer. The bedroom has 2 doors, one leads into the master bedroom and the other door to the enclosed living space so the kids don’t have access to the pool area making it extra safe with kids.
This bedroom is the only bedroom in Villa Joju Alit to have a bath. A beautiful space and plenty of room for a kid’s bed to be set up on the floor.
The Ikat bedroom is located next to the lounge area and is the perfect room for the teenagers in your family.
Kitchen and Lounge Area
The entrance door opens up onto the fully enclosed lounge, dining and full kitchen. This area also features a powder room with a toilet.
The media room next to the kitchen has a smart TV to enjoy and is located next to the kid’s bedroom.
Pool area at Villa Joju Alit
Villa Joju Alit has a great-sized pool for the kids and adults to relax by. It features its very own BBQ plus pool toys to keep everyone entertained. A pool fence can also be erected.
The connection between Villa Joju and Villa Joju Alit
Villa Joju Alit has its own laneway entrance to the door entrance and it is also to access the Balinese gate into Villa Joju. If you don’t book both villas you won’t notice the other people staying in either villa and you may never see them unless you walk down the gang outside Villa Joju at the same time.
Villa Joju Bali Staff
As you can tell by now we love staying 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 7 am-11 pm 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 11 pm-7 am 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 organize 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 a great job of decorating the villa for Charlotte’s birthday and organizing for Marshall from Paw Patrol to bring in her cake from Poule De Luxe. I feel very blessed to have met such lovely people.
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 laundromats 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 the Atlas Beach Club. The location was also easy to get to Seminyak which is about a 45-minute drive from the airport.
We loved our stays at Villa Joju Bali 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 the Villa Joju website with all of the details and prices. If you would like to receive a discount or find out prices for use of only a couple of bedrooms, contact the villa directly via email and mention Rolling Along With Kids.
We were hosted by Villa Joju Bali for our stays but all thoughts in this review are our own.
