Planning the perfect family holiday can be tricky, especially when your fickle little ones tend to bore easily. But don’t worry too much if you’re heading to the tropical island of Bali with kids in tow – many of its five-star resorts have on-site kids' clubs to keep them occupied…

In fact, the very best of Bali’s kids' clubs go above and beyond to provide not just fun entertaining activities for young adventurers, but educational experiences too – from cooking classes to swimming lessons and mini trips around local villages to learn more about Bali’s wonderful way of life. 

So, if you’re heading to Bali with kids and toddlers, let’s take a closer look at the best kids’ clubs sure to keep them happy and smiling to the max on your family holiday.

Jimba Club at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay

Holidaying in Bali with kids is easy when you stay at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay, especially with the on-site kids’ club, the Jimba Club.

Available for all kiddo guests aged between 4 to 11 years old, the action-packed itinerary at Jimba Club changes daily – so chances are they’ll want to go back every day in order to not miss out on the fun. 

Some of the best things on the schedule include unique cultural experiences they’ve probably never done before, like coconut bowling, basket weaving, Balinese dance lessons, and fishing with a resident fisherman whose job is to provide much of the resort's freshly-caught seafood served on your dinner plates. 

For the ultimate day out, make sure you also book them onto a day trip to the local waterpark, Waterbom Bali – home to 22 splash-worthy waterslides, one of which is Asia's steepest. Only the bravest daredevils will take it on!

Next on our list of the best kids’ clubs in Bali is the Pici Pici Club. Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan is a super family-friendly resort, so come here if your little ones are mini adventurers with big hearts and curious minds. 

Translated to “little snail” in Balinese, the Pici Pici Club revolves around inspiring cultural experiences that aim to open up your child's eyes to the world and its diverse people.

Some of the best things on the schedule include sports, dance lessons, a tour of the on-site vegetable garden, or a play in the ultra-charming Rice Barn Treehouse tucked away in its own secluded corner of the surrounding jungle.

The programme is tailored for all children aged 4 to 12 years old, so speak to the concierge on arrival if you think your family will benefit from the exciting activities on offer.

Mini Explorers at Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve

Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is the type of resort that streamlines a Bali holiday with kids. Whilst you’re getting a massage at the pool or practising the art of doing nothing with a cocktail, rest assured they’ll be having the time of their lives too with the designated Mini Explorers programme.

The entire resort aims to bring peace and tranquillity to your stay – and the same goes for your kiddos too.

Book them onto the wellness and nature-based itinerary and they’ll soon find their own zen through fun and relaxing activities like walks around the local rice paddies, kite-flying, gardening, scavenger hunts, and even kids’ yoga.

In fact, they’ll be having so much fun you’ll be tempted to lie about your own age to join the club!

Ritz Kids at The Ritz-Carlton, Bali

Although there are plenty of family-oriented things to do with kids in Bali, there’s also nothing wrong with enjoying things separately for the afternoon – this is your holiday too after all. Sometimes you need a little adults-only time, and that’s exactly what the kids club at The Ritz-Carlton, Bali comes to the rescue for.

The programme here is based around discovering Bali’s rich heritage and adventuring through the island’s natural wonders, including snorkelling around vibrant coral reefs and trekking through lush rainforests.

Also expect arts, crafts, and cultural activities like painting, cooking classes with resort chefs, and lessons on the importance of recycling and sustainability.

Don’t worry, it's not like they’ll be back in the classroom. The team that runs the programme are super friendly and engaging so it won't feel like learning when they’re having a whale of a time in the sun.

The Children’s Learning Centre at The St. Regis Bali Resort

Last on our list is the Children’s Learning Centre at The St. Regis Bali Resort. With a compelling programme of teacher-led activities carefully curated for 4 to 12-year-olds, we’ve no doubt your little ones will be begging for you to take them back every day, no matter their age. 

Youngsters on the lower end of the age bracket will love taking part in art-focused activities like dancing, playing instruments, or painting. And older kids will enjoy the more thought-provoking lessons including patchwork, fitness and yoga, blogging, and cooking classes based on using sustainably sourced ingredients only.

Best of all, they can choose to spend the whole day at the club or just pop in for an hour or two. It’s up to them – give them the independence they need for a freeing holiday in Bali’s glorious sunshine.
