Hotels in West Bali for families

Bali Gecko Homestay​


Bali Gecko Homestay is excellent value for money. It's tucked into a quiet, leafy lane between the main road and the beach, and sits within an enormous garden. The two larger rooms (shown here) are exceptionally spacious inside, so there's plenty of extra room if you're travelling with small kids and would like to add another mattress or two.

Puri Dajuma​

near Medewi


Most of the bungalows at Puri Dajuma have inter-connected rooms; the new villas have been set up with a small kitchenette. The swimming pool has a shallow area for children, and the beach in front of the hotel is fantastic for building sand castles. There is a protected bay for swimming in, and lots of garden space in which kids can play. (Pictured here is Pondok Segara villa at Puri Dajuma)

Pondok Pitaya

in Balian


A groovy hotel right on the beach at Balian, Pondok Pitaya offers a range of accommodation, from double rooms to villas that sleep up to eight people. Its pool has a large shallow step, and there are big lawns on which to burn off some energy. Plus the beach is right there.

Gajah Mina Beach Resort

in Balian


Set in a large tropical garden, Gajah Mina has three villas that are suitable for families. Gajah Mina has its own private "Secret Beach" with natural caves, ancient stone carvings and beautiful trails along Bali’s tranquil west coast.

The Menjangan

The Menjangan


The beachfront villas at The Menjangan are really spacious, and extra beds can be added for children. Kids will love the beach and shallow bay in front of the villas, as well as riding in the open-air double-decker "bush buggies" that transport guests on the property. The resort offers horse riding, bird walks, as well as snorkelling and sea kayaking.

Medewi Beach Inn​

in Medewi


The rooms at Medewi Beach Inn are fairly large, and the staff are happy to arrange an extra single mattress for those travelling with kids. Beach Inn is a laid-back surfers hotel just 200 metres from the point in Medewi.

Gubug Balian Beach Bungalow

in Balian


The rooms at Gubug are simple, but fairly large and they do have triple rooms on offer. There is a big lawn area on which kids can play, and a fantastic pool (which is not fenced, however). 

Bombora Wave Lodge​

in Medewi

–$$ & $$$–

Bombora is a hotel that's absolute paradise for surfers – and parents. They offer free surf lessons for children who don't yet know how to surf, and they can arrange babysitters too. There's a special kids menu and extra beds can be added.
