Ubud With The Family

When most people think about going on holiday, they don’t think about bringing children. But when coming to Ubud it’s just the opposite. There are many activities for the whole family in this authentic city in Bali. Be prepared to pass a calming holiday in Ubud. Ubud is known as the cultural hub of Bali, and kids will thoroughly enjoy a getaway to this beautiful place. Well known for its lush, green rice paddies, rich farmland and traditional Balinese arts. The kids will see a whole new world full of food, culture, dance, music, language and different perspectives. These will be memories that the whole family will cherish forever.

Where To Stay?

The first big question when travelling abroad is where to stay and how to find comfortable accommodation that is exactly like the photos. In addition to finding some child-friendly activities, we also found you a great villa finder site that offers a multitude of options. When a small hotel room with a single bed just won’t do, why not make an unforgettable experience out of your stay? Stay in an Ubud villa and you will experience private luxury and Balinese hospitality for the whole family.

Beautiful Pool, Beautiful Bali

Parents can eat and drink in style, and the kids can play until they are exhausted. Ubud’s first family pool club! Titi Batu Ubud Club welcomes families looking to have a fantastic time together while doing different activities. A day pass grants you access to their studios with classes for kids and adults. The facility is well equipped with a gym, squash court, playroom, and an extravagant pool. A family steam room, sauna, and cold bath round out the generous offering of diversions to enjoy. There is also a restaurant serving both western and local Indonesian flavours. From healthy, local, sustainable food options to burgers and pizza. Your little ones will be thrilled with a day at the pool!

Everyone Loves Monkeys

Ubud Monkey Forest is one of the most well-known attractions in Bali. You can’t leave Ubud without saying hi to the monkeys in this nature reserve and sacred temple. Home to almost four hundred monkeys and located on the southern border of Ubud. Around three kilometers from the city center makes it an easy Go-jek ride to spend a day monkeying around.

Temple On A Cliff

Picture this, eight-metre tall carvings made from the cliff face rock. An ancient temple with a collection of shrine reliefs that has become an important archeological site. The original purpose of these shrines was to worship King Udavana Warmadewa. Visit Gunung Kawi for a historical experience that will educate and fascinate you.

Swing Swing

Ride a swing high above the jungle floor, ten to seventy meters high depending on your thrill level. Recently very popular with young thrill seekers. All safety precautions are taken to ensure your kids have an adrenaline rush and you have a sound mind. A glorious view of tropical greenery and waterfalls awaits the rider.

Simple Is Often The Best

Tour the rice fields and terraced rice paddies in Ubud. Rice and Ubud are one and the same here and nearly every restaurant or home seems to have a spot to look out and contemplate nature. Admire the innovative cooperative irrigation systems known as the Subak. Feel the charm and rest your eyes on the lush green beauty. The villages of Pejeng and Campuhan have rice terraces that are perfect for photos. Take a tour where the farmer will invite you to taste the rice that grows there.
