Our Amazing Holiday Experience In Bali

balangan bali

My family and I rarely take vacations. Money is a little tight sometimes so we choose to opt-out going on vacation for most years. It’s also finding a nice place that is fun for my kids and for my husband and me. I have a boy and a girl and I never felt that there is a place we would all enjoy together. My husband and I got talking and finally we decided it was definitely time for a vacation since we both thought we all needed one and we had some extra money for a change. Thinking for weeks where we should go that would be appropriate and fun for us all, we decided on going to Bali, Indonesia. Before deciding on the place, I have heard such wonderful things about people going there when browsing the internet. People were saying that it was really beautiful and wonderful for families and even kids. I was sold when I read that, because I wouldn’t want my children to be bored on any vacation. I heard there would be a lot to do, so my husband and I bought our plane tickets for the family and we were more than thrilled to start packing and soon to be relaxing in Bali, Indonesia.

When we arrived, the weather was absolutely pleasant. We ended up staying in a luxury villa rental in Seminyak. First dLuxurious villa rental in Baliay we just stayed in the villa and it was very relaxing. I took the day to myself as my husband and kids swam in the private pool and napped throughout the day. I was very excited to learn that my luxury villa featured a spa. I enjoyed the entire day getting massaged, getting a manicure and pedicure. The employees were so nice and seemed to really care. There was a small restaurant outside of the villa that we went to for dinner, and the food was incredibly amazing. Freshness in every bite, and you could tell everything was freshly prepared to order which is a huge plus for my family.

We ended up staying in Bali for two weeks, and there wasn’t one day that wasn’t filled with fun and entertainment. We saw so many different attractions and each one was so amazing. We took many pictures throughout our trip and the kids were smiling the entire time because they were just as interested in the attractions as my husband and I were. One thing that I personally really enjoyed was visiting a couple of temples. We first one went to was called Pura Tirta Empul. It is a Hindu temple in Bali with holy water and it is said that it is sacred and it is where people go to purify themselves. I found this very fascinating as I’ve always been intrigued by the Hindu culture, and this temple was breathtaking. We were there when the sun began setting and it was so amazing. This was definitely one of my favorites, and I would highly recommend making a stop here. The next temple we visited was the Goa Lawah Temple. I learned it’s also called the “Bat Cave”. It was a really nice place, and the facts I learned was really amusing.

The next place we really enjoyed was the Bali Safari and Marine Park. Now this place was the perfect place for my son and daughter. The animals were incredibly fascinating and we took picture after picture! This wasn’t just an ordinary zoo, you really got up close and personal to these animals and we had such an adventure. I really loved their many attractions throughout the Park. There was this wonderful restaurant where you could eat next to all of the cat family animals! It was so amazing, and it had my husband and I feeling young again. We are all animal lovers in my family so this was the perfect stop for us. The weather was perfect and the tour was great as well, and the tourist did a phenomenal job at keeping everyone entertained the entire time. I would definitely go back to this Safari Park!bali-safari-marine-park

Another place I’d recommend would be the Waterbom,  a water park in Bali, and we had a blast there. There were numerous waterslides that were appropriate for all ages which was a plus for my family. I stopped first at their fish spa for a relaxing time soaking up my feet in the fish pool, it was something new, yet so relaxing and comfortable. There were also gazebos and cabanas that were for rent. My family made use of one so my husband and I could enjoy some adult things separately from our kids sometimes and so our kids could relax a little too if they needed to when we went in our villa. My husband especially loved the Sunken Pool Bar. They had a huge menu of delicious drinks that you walked up and ordered while still in the water, it was very nice! Then my kids loved their temporary tattoos from Island Ink which had people of various ages getting Henna tattoos. That was really nice because my kids met some kids their age to play with throughout the day as well which was important to me. This place just had so much to offer, there was never a dull moment, and we were surely tired by the end of our day!Bali waterbom park

Overall, my family and I loved our two week vacation. We did so much every day and even when we took a day to relax, we were enjoying every second of it. Bali just has so much attractions in the area that are safe and children friendly, it’s the perfect vacation for families and for anyone at that. Our villa in Seminyak was amazing and there was so much to do there as well to enjoy the day, and everyone was so friendly. This is one vacation that I can definitely say I would love to come back and visit again, and very soon!
