Surely a relaxing stay in a luxurious villa in Bali and a tribe of excited kids in tow do not go hand in hand… Well, think again! Yes, dreams can come true with these family friendly villas in Canggu and Seminyak. With the help of full-time staff, children’s activities and games, and perks like special kid’s club memberships, you can ensure the children are having a ball whilst also fitting in those much-needed poolside cocktails! Here are our top five villas that are perfect for a family vacay to the Island of the Gods.
Located in the bustling hub of Seminyak, Villa Jajaliluna is a peaceful oasis and a welcome escape from the crowds. Seminyak is a great spot for family holidays due to its endless variety of restaurants and cafes, its sandy beach, and its awesome shopping, but it is a welcome escape to have your own private sanctuary just minutes down the road.
Villa Jajaliluna is a gorgeous 4-bedroom property with plenty to keep you and the little ones occupied. Spend your holiday splashing in the private T-shaped swimming pool or indulging in freshly prepared food made by your very own in-house chef. Take shade under the coconut palms and relax with a book, whilst the friendly staff challenge the kids to a game of Nintendo Wii in the media room. The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down either – we all know how excited kids get when they see bunk beds, and there are four of them at Villa Jajaliluna!
And if you think that won’t keep everyone busy, you also get complimentary guest passes to the popular Canggu Club, where you can eat pizza, have a family game of bowling, and even challenge the kids to a game of basketball on trampoline’s at Bounce!

The Layar is a stunning villa resort located in the heart of Seminyak, comprising of twenty-three 1-4-bedroomed villas. Each villa has its very own swimming pool [complete with a shallow end and pool fence if needed], plus a landscape garden perfect for the little ones to run around and play on.
There is a fully functional kitchen in each villa, so you can prepare meals for the fussy eaters easily, or alternatively there is the option to call room service and get your food delivered [well, you are on holiday too!]. And if the little ones fancy some pasta or pizza, head to The Layar’s very own on-site Italian restaurant, Settimo Cielo.
We all know that the amount of luggage you need to bring on holiday seems to triple when you have kids in tow, but fear not! The helpful staff at The Layar can hire you anything you need so that it is waiting for you when you arrive. What more could you ask for!

After a morning of splashing around in the separate shallow pool [for safe swimming], the kids can chill out on a bean bag in their very own playroom and watch some TV, play the PS3 and get out a board game. There’s even a tree house!
Later on in the evening why not challenge the kids to a game of pool or table tennis in the games room, before the babysitters come so you can enjoy a night on the town with your partner!
