We’ve also put handy links to book each activity, so look no further for your Bali Adventures!!

#1 Cultural Tour in a VW Safari

Exploring Bali is more fun in a soft top Volkswagon Safari. There are tons of different tours you can do, but this one around East Bali is one of my favorites. You’ll take in tons of natural beauty and stop at some of the island’s most interesting historical and cultural sites.

 

With an English-speaking guide you will learn about Bali’s mother temple Besakih, visit one of the oldest villages and see the biggest banyan tree on the whole island. Lunch and drinking water is included, but you’ll definitely need a hat and sunscreen to keep from getting burnt.

#2 Bali Island ATV

If your looking for the most fun on 4 wheels in Bali you have to book a Bali Island ATV tour. Ride through rice paddies, villages and have a burn down a quiet beach.

Tours are either 1 or 2 hours and English-speaking guides will tell you about the area and culture as you ride. Kids can ride on with a parent, or those over 12 can ride alone depending on their ability.

Some tours include food and drinks and pick up/return transfers. Have a look at the options to pick the right one for your family. Mention that you follow Bali Kids Guide and you’ll get 20% off the published price!

#3 Half-Day Wakebaording

Have you ever wanted to try wakeboarding? If you haven’t, this is your chance! Bali has a world-class wakeboarding park perfect for any level of wakeboarder. Professional instructors are on hand to help with technique and safety whether it’s your first lesson or 100th.

 

Kids from 7 years old can wakeboard or kneeboard to get used to the feeling. For those not wakeboarding there is a pool and restaurant where you can relax and watch the action.

#4 Morning Food Tour & Cooking Class

Foodies get ready for a Balinese feast! Experience Kuta traditional market to buy fresh produce and then head back to the kitchen for breakfast of Balinese treats. You’ll then learn to make 9 Balinese dishes and 1 dessert and have an amazing lunch of all the delicious things you’ve cooked.

This activity is 100% kid friendly and is an amazing family experience.

#5 Mount Batur Dirtbike Adventure

Not kid-friendly, but if you love adventure and want to get out for an adults only day, this is the tour for you.

You’ll head into the mountains of Bali and meet your guides who will get you ready to ride a 250cc Kawasaki KLX. The professional guides will lead you up amazing dirt bike trails on the slopes of Mount Batur for an adrenaline rush.

The tour also includes coffee at a plantation and return transfers.

#6 Stand Up Paddle Lesson

Stand up paddle boarding is a great way for all ages to get out on the water. During this lesson you’ll learn about the equipment, basic paddling skills and get out on the water to practice on flat water. By the end of the session you’ll be able to balance an paddle as well as make turns on the board.

 

This is really a fun family activity that will bring you together, laughing at each other falling off and cheering as you all head off into the waves.

#7 Kids Perfume Workshop

Rainy days in Bali do happen, so why not book this kids perfume workshop for a great inside activity. Of course it doesn’t have to be rainy to learn something new!

This 1-hour workshop introduces kids to various smells and encourages them to mix and create their own unique fragrance. They’ll even be able to take home their own bottle of perfume and a diploma from the class.

Downhill cycling is a great way to see a bit of Bali. It’s 100% family friendly and kids from 7 can ride on their own bikes. Younger ones go in a seat with a parent.

On this tour you’ll take in coffee and cocoa plantations, villages, and Bali’s natural beauty with jungle, rice field and river valleys. Your guides will lead the way as you slowly ride down from Kintamani volcano to Bambang just north of Ubud.

Try Something New at the Kids Summer Holiday Camp at Novotel Lombok

Try Something New at the Kids Summer Holiday Camp at Novotel Lombok

Novotel Lombok Resort & Villas

Lombok, Bali’s closest neighbor to the east, is best known for the ‘Gilis’, the three islands off of the northwest coast, but stay on the mainland and it’s a different world. Kuta Lombok bares little resemblance to Kuta Bali, as it is still a small coastal town with gorgeous stretches of white sand and glistening blue water. Novotel Lombok Resort and Villas opened their doors in 1997 and remains one of the only major resorts in the area. This means plenty of space, sea breezes and quiet you rarely find in Bali these days.

Starting this year, Novotel Lombok and Rinjani Indah School will be running a Summer Holiday Camp for kids aged 4-12 years old. If you’re looking for a place to relax and explore, but also have the kids entertained and stimulated, this could be the perfect place.

Summer Holiday Camp Fun at Novotel Lombok

The Summer Holiday Camp will run Monday – Friday with a half day on Saturdays from the 18th of June – 27th of July 2018. The program will be held on the grounds of the Novotel Lombok but will be fully supervised by qualified teachers from Rinjani Indah School.

Kids will be stimulated with fun learning activities both inside and outside, games, water play, sports, arts and crafts and plenty more. Kids will get a healthy and delicious lunch (full day) to keep their energy up for all the exciting things they’ll be doing during the day.

Fees are paid on a half or full day basis, Rp200,000 and Rp350,000 respectively. This means you can enjoy the summer camp whenever for a few days or the whole month. However, spaces are limited so get in touch with Novotel Lombok as soon as possible by email or phone +62 (0)370 6153 333 to reserve your spot.
