Ubud Retreat Offers Relaxation For The Whole Family On A Bali Vacation

Share The Article

Bali’s Ubud is one of the world’s top destinations for honeymoon couples and lovers on a romantic retreat.

Many of the most family-friendly resorts can be found along the coast of Badung Regency, but there is one hotel in the jungles of Ubud that is offering a nature-filled retreat for the whole family.

The Westin Resort & Spa, Ubud, offers families on vacation a unique opportunity to rest and relax, surrounded by the verdant rice terraces the region is oh-so-famous for.

Guests are treated to calming views of nature and have their every need catered for, whatever their age or interest.

For families seeking a mix of adventure, culture, wellness, and relaxation, The Westin Resort & Spa in Ubud is a must-visit. Whether as holidaymakers venturing to Bali from homes far away, or as a quick little staycation, The Westin ticks all the right boxes. 

A family vacation is not always an easy dynamic to manage. As much as spending quality time together is important, sometimes, in order to ensure quality time is exactly that, everyone needs a few hours to do their own thing. The Westin Resort & Spa has this covered. 

While parents and grown-ups can unwind in the world-famous Heavenly Spa by Westin, little ones (and just a bit bigger than little ones) can head over to The Westin Family Kids Club, where they will be kept busy with a fantastic range of creative, cultural and educational activities.

Grown-ups can return when they are ready, with nervous systems freshly reset, feeling pampered and prepared for the high vibes of the little ones. 

The Westin believes that wellness is for everyone, children included. Family yoga sessions are a hugely popular activity for guests and really help set the tone of the day and the vacation overall.

The expansive pool is perfect for playing, relaxing, and swimming, and there’s plenty of shade and sun loungers for those unexpected afternoon snoozes!

Ubud is a travel destination ideal for families. Bali’s culture is very family-friendly, and little ones are always cared for with such consideration and generosity.

Children are welcome to take part in cooking classes, cultural dance classes, and all kinds of artisan workshops. 

For a big adventure with the whole family, an activity day on ATVs is well worth organizing. The Westin Resort & Spa Ubud sits just minutes from the Banjar Kengetan in Singakerta Village, where many of the outdoor adventure tour providers start their tours.

Many ATV experiences are catered towards families, though it’s important to check before booking what each provider’s policy is regarding age restrictions for rafting and ATV riding. 


Top activities for families with young children in Ubud include day trips to the many waterfalls and rice terraces that surround the town.

No trip to Ubud would be complete without a mission to a waterfall; one of the best waterfalls for families is Suwat Waterfall.

Located a quick 30-minute drive from The Westin, Suwat Waterfall is a top first stop on a day trip chasing waterfalls around Ubud.

The walk from the parking spot to the waterfall is not arduous, and there aren’t too many stairs for little legs. 


For something a little more magical to add to the day trip, be sure to visit Taman Sari Waterfall & Natural Pool.

This stunning little hidden gem can be found just 9 km from Suwat Waterfall and is a cool spot to hang out for a whole afternoon.

The natural pool is perfect for swimming, and the site rarely feels busy; time it right, and you could even have the waterfall and natural pools to yourself!
