8 Mellow Family Activities in Bali


Splashing in cool water while rolling down fun slides is always a good idea, regardless of age. And it’s also a great way to cool off on a warm day. Splash Waterpark has six aquatic attractions, a half-Olympic-sized pool, and poolside pizza to curb that hunger. The park also has four thrilling slides, a lounging area, a gentle water play section, and a zone for the little ones to play in.

You can also check out the Waterbom on your family trip to Bali, which has Asia’s steepest slide within its 3.8-hectare park. They have a range of rides that kids of all ages can enjoy. Rent a cabana to enjoy a little downtime while the children grab a tube and float down the Lazy River. 

Check out these beautiful Seminyak villas within close range of the waterparks.

Bali Safari and Marine Park

This is not your typical zoo. With 4×4 safaris and Africa-style lodges, you’ll feel transported to the Mother Continent. You can encounter over 1000 animals, such as lions, tigers and giraffes, and endangered species, such as the Komodo dragon and orangutan. 

While the Safari tour is a thrill in itself, you can amp up the fun even more by lunching with the lions. The children can also watch educational presentations and interact freely with rabbits and meerkats.

Bali Treetop Adventure Park

The Treetop Adventure Park is situated in the Botanical Gardens in the Bedugul area and can be a fun adventure around your family accommodation in Bali. If all your children are 4 and above, you can enjoy any of the seven adventures, twelve challenges, suspended bridges, Tarzan jumps, and more in this family obstacle course.

White Water Rafting

The Ayung River is the longest waterway in Bali and hosts one of the most exhilarating whitewater rafting tours. You’ll cruise over the rocky shallows and past temples, mossy shrines, and bamboo-clad villas. If you’re trying out the 12km cruise, you’ll see rice paddies, waterfalls, rainforests, and more. And finally, you’ll conclude the tour with a delicious lunch buffet. But children must be at least 5 years of age to enter the cruise.

Surfing in Nusa Lembogan

No family trip to Bali is complete without a surfing session. Explore the Southeastern islands and catch one of the world-class surf breaks. You can also go snorkelling, on bike rides, mangrove cruises or just relax in one of the laid-back beach clubs. 

These luxurious Nusa Lembongan villas will be perfect to enjoy your slice of tropical heaven even more.

Frankenstein’s Laboratory

If your kids are a fan of Hotel Transylvania or probably anything creepy, then they would love Frankenstein’s Laboratory. The dining venue has live cabarets every night. Watch your kids shriek with glee and maybe a little fear as the monsters, mummies, and zombies go on stage and dance to live music. 

If you’re about it being too gruesome, there are family-friendly shows every day.

Bali Bird Park and Reptile Parks

The Bali sanctuary near Ubud mirrors the natural habits of the estimated 1000 birds living there. The birds cover over 250 species, with 40 of them being protected Indonesian species. It’s an excellent opportunity to get up close to this species and learn more about wildlife conservation. 

Adjacent to the bird park is the Bali Reptile Park. They have the most amazing collection of reptiles in Southeast Asia, such as the largest reticulated python in captivity. 

Begin by booking your luxurious Ubud family villas.

Swim with Mantas

You do not want to miss this activity on your family trip to Bali. But you would need to wake up early not to miss this once-in-a-lifetime snorkelling opportunity. This is because the manta rays descend every morning, and you can clean and feed them in the stations that are set up.

Enjoy Your Family Trip to Bali

Most family resorts have an array of activities for the little ones to enjoy, such as outdoor movie screenings, water plays and cultural events. Bali Villa Escapes has a wide range of family accommodation across different popular Bali destinations, allowing you to access multiple fun activities and adventures during the day. The villa has staff on call 24/7 to handle everything you may need for your next getaway to this amazing island.
