Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay

First on our list of the best family hotels in Bali is Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay. We’re big believers that a family day out to the beach is the best kind of way to spend some quality time together – and this resort has one of Bali’s most beloved beaches right on your doorstep, Jimbaran Bay.

By day you’ll be lounging on the white sands building sandcastles or surfing in the waves of the Indian Ocean. There are even surfing lessons available if you’re a family of novices who want to learn the basics with a helpful and friendly pro instructor.

For dinner, make sure you book a table at Taman Wantilan, the resort’s super family-friendly restaurant serving up all your classic family favourites, just with a Balinese twist – even the fussiest eaters will find something to tickle their fancy. 

Plus, a children’s play area is just a few yards from the main dining room, meaning you adults can enjoy your food in peace whilst the little ones entertain themselves.

Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve

The island of Bali boasts all sorts of natural wonders waiting to be explored, from the sacred flowing waters of the Ayung River to the mountainous rainforests home to a variety of exotic fauna and flora.

If your family has come to Bali wanting to feel immersed in the incredible sights and sounds of Mother Nature, a stay at Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is perfect. 

Must-try things to do in the resort’s local area include a family bike ride around the charming neighbouring villages, a thrilling white water rafting experience along the Ayung river, or a visit to the Sangeh Monkey Forest just a 30-minute drive away.

Plus, there are plenty of things to keep the little ones occupied on site too, including an exciting array of nature-based activities at the Mini Explorers kids club – such as scavenger hunts, gardening, kite-flying, and an educational hike around the nearby rice paddies learning all about the island’s unique agriculture lifestyle.

The hike’s spectacular views alone mean parents should definitely come along too – you won’t want to miss out on the photo opportunities.

The Ritz-Carlton, Bali

One of the best family hotels in Bali for educational and cultural experiences is The Ritz-Carlton, Bali.

As a sustainability-driven resort, guests both young and old have the opportunity to learn all about the eco-friendly operations taking place in and around the resort.

Don’t worry, they’re not boring classroom lessons – the activities at the designated kids club help the family learn via an inspiring hands-on approach, including things like Balinese cooking classes, hikes through the jungle, explorative swims around coral reefs, and lessons in how the resort responsibly recycles its waste. 

After using so much brain power and creative juices, your family will need somewhere to rest their heads – and we think the Ritz-Carlton Oceanfront Villa is the ideal accommodation. With its three large bedrooms and private beachfront pool, It's an absolute haven for sun-seeking families.

The St. Regis Bali Resort

Last on our list, but certainly not least, is The St. Regis Bali Resort. For the ultimate stay in grandeur, we recommend booking your family into The Strand Residence. Luxury family-friendly resorts in Bali simply don’t get more elegant and lavish than this 2,906ft2 villa…

Every inch of the residence is designed to make you feel like a VIP, including 24/7 butler service, three large bedrooms boasting stylish decor, private access to a stretch of Nusa Dua beach, and your very own private pool perfect for family-bonding days.

However you spend your time here, just make sure you head to the shore for a spot of water sports action too – older children and teenagers will love ticking off the menu of adrenaline-pumping activities, including jet skiing, windsurfing, snorkelling, and the must-do holiday classic, white-knuckle banana boating.
