Q: What Should I Consider when Booking a Hotel?

A: Some easy identifiers, serving as great additional options to consider, include:

  • Presence of a kids’ club or playground as part of its facilities
  • Kiddie pools complementing its main pool
  • Babysitter or child care services upon request
  • Dining venues have laidback choices, sometimes with kids’ menus available
  • Cribs or baby cots upon request
  • Connecting or adjoining rooms

Q: How Safe is Bali?

A: Very safe. Naturally, no destination is without issues, though Bali's are mostly limited to pick-pocketing and methanol poisoning, so you just need to keep an eye on your drinks and a hand on your wallet. Flight delays and cancellations because of volcanic eruptions on neighbouring islands can be a major disruption, but are very rare.

Generally speaking, taking basic precautions will keep you and your family safe. Most popular resorts practice good security measures, as do the many famous bars and restaurants that put mandatory inspections in place. If you’re using a taxi, take note of the driver’s ID or vehicle number in case you accidentally leave something behind. Keep your child near in large crowds at tourist hotspots. On the beach, always swim between the red and yellow flags, which designate the safe area. Do not swim where you see solid red flags, which mean there is a danger of strong tides or undercurrents.


Q: Should I Consider Travel Vaccination for My Kids?

A: While they are not essential, medical organisations do reccommend them. Usually, children from 18 months to five years of age are already administered with most standard vaccines by your paediatrician. Older children may require booster shots, administered six to eight weeks before travelling. Recommended vaccinations for Bali are Hepatitis A and Typhoid. Normal precautions, such as using mosquito repellant and being careful of what you eat and drink, should prevent any serious illnesses. Please consult your doctor for more information.


Q: Is Food and Water in Bali Safe to Consume?

  • Don't drink water from the tap
  • Water and ice at hotels and restaurants are safe
  • When eating out, a good rule of thumb is to choose a busy restaurant as their ingredients are typically fresher

Q: Are There Recommended Pharmacies in Bali?

A: There are pharmacies all over the island’s main resort areas. There are Guardian drugstore outlets in most of the major malls, while the state-owned Kimia Farma pharmacist has many chemists (referred to locally as ‘apotek’) spread throughout the island.

Q: Are There Babysitting Services in Bali?

A: Having the helping hand of a babysitter can greatly assist you for that much-needed timeout in the midst of your Bali holiday. Your family hotel in Bali, especially those with kids’ clubs onsite, should be able to provide babysitting and child care services from their team of well-trained staff. Some private babysitting services, available upon request in Bali, are as follows:

  • Karsini Services
    Open: 09:00 – 17:00
    Location: Jalan Sudamala No.15, Sanur
    Tel: +62 (0)812 4692 984

    Tel: +62 (0)812 3654 977

Q: Are There Baby Equipment Rentals in Bali?

A: Similar to babysitting service providers above, there are also places in Bali that hire out baby equipment such as strollers, to take off the stress of hauling your own expensive (and usually unnecessary) baggage on your flight to the island. Some of these services also add convenience by getting all your pre-booked baby gear delivered to your hotel or villa upon your arrival. Here are some great services to check out:


Q: How Do I Get Around With Kids in Bali?

A: Taxis and hired cars (with drivers) would be the best and most popular way for getting around in Bali. Asking for one from your hotel concierge will almost always get you one for a prearranged trip. If with a baby, it is best to also arrange for baby car seats from a baby equipment rental to be fitted in the car you’re hiring (which should also feature reliable rear seatbelts to secure the baby seat in place). Bemos, motorcycle taxis, and renting a car to drive on your own are not recommended.


Q: What Should I Pack for my Holiday with Kids in Bali?

A: Packing for travel with kids can be quite a task. Taking only the essentials is key. Non-essential stuff can be found in Bali, so should not take up more space and excess baggage for your flight.

  • Essentials:
    - Diapers (for the flight and through the first days)
    - Clothes and underwear (the younger, the more frequent changes: roughly at least six sets for two days)
    - Swimsuits
    - Non-allergenic sunscreen
    - Baby food
    - Milk powder (unless breastfed)
    - Footwear and socks
    - Small volume toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, mild body wash and shampoo, baby wipes, etc.)
    - Favourite toy or book
  • Non-essentials, which you can find at your hotel or purchase in Bali:
    - Extra diapers (most international brands sold at malls and supermarkets)
    - Towels
    - Snacks
    - Stroller (hire)
    - Kid’s car seats (hire)
    - Hats
    - Bibs
    - Multivitamins
    - Bottled water
    - Hand sanitizer
    - Extra toiletries
