Taking a family holiday to Bali is a perfect way to introduce your young adventurers to the delights of South East Asia.
This magical island welcomes all with wide and warm smiles, a real sense of community and charm, and oodles of exciting locations to explore, from beach to rainforest. Along the way, you’ll find all manner of fascinating experiences, from temples to bird sanctuaries, and monkey forests to safari parks. You’ll notice straight away how the Balinese take your little ones to their heart; this is an island where children are really adored.
Coupled with this warm spirit, your family will all be looked after at some truly spectacular resorts. Two of these are those proudly owned by the internationally renowned Ritz-Carlton group. As Jean-Michel Cousteau says; “All kids start out as scientists, constantly asking ‘Why? What’s that? How does it work?’” Ritz Kids resort experiences at The Ritz-Carlton, Bali tap into that innate curiosity by introducing the resort’s youngest guests to both the natural wonders and the rich cultural traditions of this child-friendly hotel. Immersive and adventurous, the resort’s experiences provide your child with enthralling activities to reward their interest in the beauty and workings of the world we live in. With a diverse collection of vacation activities based on the four pillars of the program — water, land, environmental responsibility and culture — kids are swept away by everything from coral reefs and forests, to recycling and sustainability, storytelling, art and even food.
Welcome to the world's most exciting playground. For kids, the coastline and the ocean is a world of limitless possibilities, just waiting to be explored. The Ritz-Carlton Bali is here to help your children discover them.
The Ritz Kids program has a range of activities that brings local Balinese culture to life and draws inspiration from the resort’s coastal setting. From kite-making and surfing classes to beach bonfires and sandcastle building competitions, the resort can help children have fun and engage with their environment in ways they never dreamed of. The fun begins from the moment you check in. Kids will discover a safari-style tent pitched in their room, complete with a flashlight, compass, drink bottle and lion toy. Everything your children need for an in-room camping adventure.
We’d also absolutely recommend a twin-centre stay in Bali, by teaming the Ritz-Carlton Bali with a few days in the beautiful countryside in centre of the island, in Ubud. At the wonderful Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton reserve, your family will be wowed with the resort’s “Mini Explorers” offering. This club introduces younger guests to both the natural wonders and the rich cultural traditions of its beautiful location, featuring an organic farm and an educational Jungle Hut, tucked away from the rest of the resort.
The program offers your children the chance to learn new skills, make new friends and take part in a wide range of creative activities, all under expert supervision. A learning adventure inspired by nature, the club’s offerings combine opportunities for the entire family to explore Balinese culture and enriching eco-based activities together.
Amongst the nature-based education activities are kid’s yoga, jungle gym, a scavenger hunt, nature walks, organic gardening, colour making, chocolate making, Balinese kite-flying and rice paddy exploration.
