JIMBARAN WITH KIDS

Jimbaran was one of the first places we set foot in Bali three years ago. We made it to the beach for sunset and sat at a candle lit table with the waves just about washing under our table. Our little one was only ten months at the time, and it was there our love [...]

THE ULTIMATE BALI HIDEAWAY

Anyone that’s been to Bali will know it can be incredibly busy in paradise. From intense road traffic jams, to the full beach at sunset, there are plenty of people around. Bali is such a desirable place for many, but the ‘old Bali’ is harder to come by. Who doesn't want to experience the ultimate [...]

SANUR WITH KIDS

Throughout our Bali adventure we visited Sanur with kids four times in two months. It's a really lovely town on the East Coast of Bali. Attracting more Europeans than Australians, the demographic of tourists is quite different. Isn't it funny? Although it sees plenty of tourists it is far less than other places such as [...]

IS HOTEL INDIGO, SEMINYAK BEACH BALI FAMILY FRIENDLY?

I have to be honest, I hadn't heard of Hotel Indigo until a fellow blogger did a review of the Singapore branch. Recently opened in Bali's popular Seminyak neighbourhood, I was really keen to visit. There are only a handful of hotels that manage to combine luxury and family-friendliness, not to mention embrace and integrate [...]

CANGGU WITH KIDS

Canggu is a popular town based on Bali's west coast. It's particularly popular amongst Australian and Kiwi tourists. The expat community is notable in the area with hip cafes, restaurants, beach clubs and so on. I have to admit there are other areas that feel a lot more like Bali, Canggu is somewhat westernised in [...]

A PERSONALISED FAMILY YOGA RETREAT

After spending the last eight months travelling with our children, experiences can become a little bit 'same same'. That sounds incredibly obnoxious, I know. Unique experiences are hard to come by, the longer you travel. That was until we visited the Power of Now Oasis for a personalised family yoga retreat. In honesty, I hadn't [...]

GILI TRAWANGAN WITH KIDS

We spent a little over a week on The Gili's. Starting off on Meno we spent lots of time relaxing before moving onto Gili Trawangan with kids. If ever you are dreaming of a tropical paradise, Gili Islands are just that.  Deep blue ocean, vividly separated from aqua blue water, and white sand beaches with [...]
