Top Places to Rent a Family Villa in Bali18 January 2020 by Ade
A villa is perfect accommodation for a family on holiday, because it is typically spacious and private. At best, it includes a swimming pool and is centrally located to popular spots. At worst, it’s a holiday home to share the joy of vacationing together as a family.
Checklist for A Family-Friendly Villa
When searching for family villas, you must also consider whether or not the location is family-friendly. If you have small children, it is best not to rent villas that are too close, or even directly on, the main street. Bali can be hot, so the area should have a great abundance of greenery, and not many cars passing by. Also, to avoid a lot of noise at night, it is best to find villas that are not too close to bars and big restaurants.
Villas located near the beach can be a treat for older children. Bali’s shorelines are relatively safe. You only need to make sure that your children respect the safe boundaries, and don’t swim too far out to sea.
Canggu is one of the most family-friendly places in southwestern Bali. Terraced rice fields that gently roll from Mengwi, are sought-after natural features for the location of yoga retreats and restaurants.
The roads are not too busy for families to cross safely. Even the main road, Jl Pantai Berawa, is not crowded with vehicles, so families can enjoy a healthy morning walk on most of the roads in Canggu.
On Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong, you can find Tarukan Equestrian Center where you can take your children to ride horses, and Taman Segara Madu Water Park – something you can all look forward to! For your parents, The Canggu Studio offers relaxing yoga for the elderly.
Although Seminyak has attracted an increasing number of crowds over the years, it is a very friendly place for families. The area surrounding Seminyak Square and Seminyak Village shopping centers, has crowds that are typical when locals and foreigners congregate to find family entertainment here.
Even at night, it is unlikely to find bars with heart-pumping music and drunken people in Jl. Petitenget and Jl. Kayu Jati. In fact, most people come here to spend an evening with a positive vibe, and perhaps to try out some gelatos, like Gelato Secrets.
Uluwatu is the destination for cultural lovers and surfers. While the area is not as developed as Kuta or Seminyak, it attracts a different, calmer crowd altogether. You might not see a great collection of bars and fancy restaurants, but this location is just perfect if you want to settle down in a quiet villa with nothing but a brilliant view of the sunset from the famous Uluwatu clifftops.
There is a good reason why the Intercontinental Resort was built in this area. The quiet atmosphere, coupled with a beautiful beach, is exactly what you need for precious shared moments at a family barbeque, with swimming by the sea.
If there is one place closely associated with family gathering, it’s seafood restaurant. Especially in Asian cultures, seafood restaurants are known to be a hub for family gatherings. Jimbaran has an abundance of these, so you always have many options to choose from.
