The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
The Shinta Dewi villas in both Seminyak and Ubud are great for families: their large swimming pools are sure to be the focus of the kids’ day and, unusually for Bali, safety fences are available at the villas for families with younger children. When its time to take a break from the sun, kids and adults alike will enjoy watching films on screens in all the bedrooms and in the villas’ many living areas. The beach is just five minutes away from Shinta Dewi Seminyak, and there is plenty to occupy adventurous children just beyond the Ubud villa: rice field walks, batik classes and – a short drive away – rafting and elephant rides.
Shinta Dewi’s friendly staff will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Baked beans for breakfast? Chicken nuggets for tea? No problem. The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, highchair, baby bath and children’s cutlery and plates) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page – there’s plenty around both Seminyak and Ubud to keep all the family amused throughout the holiday.
