Want to travel with the grandparents and the kids? Bali is the place to go. 

Why Bali?

It’s close, it’s cheap and it’s luxury. 

Flights leave for Bali every day. You can pick up a return flight for less than $500. The flight only takes a few hours and then, you’re in paradise.

Luxury villas are affordable in Bali. You can score a three and four bedroom pool villas for around $500 a night. When you split the cost you can upgrade the luxury level. 

Bali has plenty of villas that fit big families, multi-generation families or multiple families. Families who come here can stay together and still have their own space. 

What you get for your money in Bali is simply incredible.

Most Bali villas have plunge pools, butler service, exquisite furnishings and deep baths. You can book beachfront or jungle villas. Three bedrooms or four. You can find villas in isolated spots or smack bang in the middle of town.  Whatever you want – Bali has it. This place will make you feel like a millionaire.

For grandparents, Bali may come with a dash of nostalgia. It was the place to go to tune out, surf and commune with nature. They love sharing their memories of their adventures with the grandkids. And the grandkids love hearing them. 

For kids Bali is paradise. It’s warm, it has stunning beaches, it has monkeys and cheap souvenirs and pools they can swim in every day. If you travel with friends, the kids will love playing together.

For parents, multi-generation holidays mean they can share the load of child-minding. Leave the kids with the grandparents and take time out to get a massage. Or walk the beach. Or read a book without interruptions.

What can you do in Bali?

Besides swimming in the pool and lazing on the beach? Just kidding. Bali has plenty to offer all ages. 

Kids love Waterbomb Bali. This waterpark has rides of all sizes and levels of adrenalin rush. Chill out on the Lazy River or attempt to reach speeds of 70km an hour as you smash down an eight-story slide on Smash Down.

Go whitewater rafting down the beautiful Ayung River with Bali Adventure Tours. Or try mountain biking through lush green forest down Mount Abang or along the slopes of Bali’s volcanos. 

If you take a day trip to Nusa Lembongan you can go snorkelling with manta rays through the beautiful coral gardens of Crystal Bay.

Cooking classes are another great way for grandparents and grandkids to connect.
