Travel trends may come and go, but in Bali, family-friendly tourism will always prevail as a mainstay of the local economy.
Easily one of the best destinations in the world for traveling as a young family, Bali is well set up to make sure that every member of the family, no matter their age, has a memorable stay on the Island of the Gods.
From family-friendly resorts to kids clubs, from babysitting services to child-friendly attractions and kids menus at the best restaurants in town, Bali makes it easy for families to travel together and actually relax while on vacation.
Whether traveling with a nearly newborn, toddler, little one, or a little bit bigger than little ones, Bali has so much to offer families.
It may be the case that Indonesia’s Ministry for Tourism and Creative Economies wants to focus on promoting adventure tourism, village tourism, sports and events tourism, and even wedding tourism in 2023, but family-friendly experiences will always be in high demand in Bali.

The Hard Rock Hotel
Staying at The Hard Rock Hotel in Kuta really is as cool as it sounds.
Perfect for adults and children, The Hard Rock Hotel is a truly unique getaway in the heart of Bali’s most famous beachside resort.

When it comes to a family vacation in Bali, it’s not just about the hotel.
Families heading on holiday to the Island of the Gods also want to make the most of their time away and experience day trips and all the must-do cultural highlights.
Fortunately, many of Bali’s most significant cultural landmarks are ideal for children.
Bali has a very family-oriented culture, and little ones are welcome pretty much everywhere. First-time travelers to Bali are often surprised to learn that eating out at restaurants with kids in Bali is far easier than at home.
On many occasions, servers in Bali have doubled to become friendly babysitters giving that loving and welcoming touch to the dining experience.
Top-rated family-friendly vacation experiences in Bali include a walk around Monkey Forest in Ubud, trying out the new skatepark in Kuta, taking an art class at Berawa Art House in Canggu, or going rafting through the jungle.
Exploring waterfalls and rice fields is all super easy with children and is an excellent opportunity to get outdoors as a family and learn about a new and exciting culture.
