Perks for the Parents

This spacious Bali villa with a pool has luxurious bedrooms and a team of 6 superb staff to help parents have a relaxing stay. Take a break while the wonderful cook prepares meals; book a personal driver to explore the island and enjoy a massage with a masseur who drops by daily. The property is well staffed and includes a nanny, Ketut, who has worked with the owners for 26 years. Often 1 of her 3 daughters comes to play dress up with children. The house includes room for all to play, large bedrooms and a lovely swimming pool overlooking rice fields. The closest beach is 10 minutes away.

Why Kids Love it

Nothing is too much trouble – and with plenty of activities and kind staff on hand to help make a vacation fun, kids will love a stay here. There is lots of space to play and explore and plenty of activities to arrange. They include: surf lessons, swimming lessons in the private pool, skateboarding, Balinese dancing, blessing ceremonies, yoga, temple tours and beach days. The Rainbow playgroup is 5 minutes away and the Canggu sports club 10 minutes away. Anything you need can be arranged – just ask the owners.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. Rates include staff but there are set extra fees for overtime such as babysitting and driving. Tips are extra: it is customary in Bali to leave a gratuity tip to staff upon departure. The pool is unfenced but a pool safety fence can easily be erected on request. There are stone steps outside in the garden – young children may need a little help. All necessities such as high chairs, cribs, car seats, etc can all be hired for a minimal fee from Bali Baby Hire – please ask the hosts for details. Extra nannies can be booked when required. The owners have great access to kids activities in Bali from their favourite kids sites and a detailed guidebook for insider tips for your stay. All bedrooms have TV and DVD players plus air conditioning. There are ceiling fans throughout the villa, along with WiFi and stereo with surround sound. Two bikes are available.

Style Notes

Modern bohemian. This beautiful villa draws inspiration from interiors all over the Indonesian archipelago, and has been lovingly decorated with treasures and collectables. A regular feature in design blogs and magazines (including Garance Dore, Belle Australia and Danish Elle), it is a large open grass thatched roof villa with indoor-outdoor flow. There are 1.6 acres of tropical gardens, including a pool and lounge areas. We love the luxurious, tropical spaces, the semi-outdoor bathroom and the divine wooden day bed beside the pool.

Hi my name is Jane and I am an Australian born traveller with great interest in design and interiors. I built Villa Bella for my daughter Bella in 92. I have been visiting Bali since I was a little girl and my knowledge of the beautiful island is vast and I share some of my secret places, things to do and spots to visit in my guide book. My staff are incredible and are like family to me. Our nanny Ketut started working for me when my daughter Bella was just 5 days old! Ketut and her husband Nyoman make a wonderful team and their sweet souls will make your stay a treasured one. I decided to join Kid & Co because I feel that Villa Bella is so suitable for kids, babies and families. If you read through our guest book you will see the wonderful comments and drawings from all the kids who come and stay and the happy parents. I am based now in NYC but return to Bali a couple of times a year... I am a beach lover and nature enthusiast.

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Bella. Ketut, Nyoman and the rest of the staff looked after us so well. They were so friendly and kind to our children - nothing was too much trouble. The villa is beautiful, we were taken care of so well, enjoyed delicious food and had a lovely holiday. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend and hope to return again one day.

Our family of 5 had a wonderful time at Villa Bella. The villa's staff and family did a wonderful job taking care of us and the house and made our first trip to Bali really memorable. The house itself is stunning and styled beautifully. There would be enough space for 2 families to share and the garden and pool is a real asset to the house. The housekeeper Ketut is an amazing cook and her and her daughter also helped us look after our three small children so we could go and explore the local sights a bit. I would definitely recommend Villa Bella for a great family holiday, I just wish I lived a bit closer so I could visit more often!

The Villa Bella exceeded our expectations in every single way. From the amazing villa design and surroundings to the friendly staff that made our stay just that extra bit special. We cannot wait to visit The Villa Bella again!

Bali, Indonesia

Paradise island

This tropical paradise isn’t just for backpackers and honeymooners: imagine what fun your kids could have playing on the beach, spotting colorful birds and jungle bugs in the Balinese jungle and riding elephants on safari. There’s always the beach - great for sandcastles and even better for surfing, if they’re old enough. Browse art and eat in local cafes in Ubud, the center of the island, and pick your way carefully around the floral offerings. Sybaritic treats come in the form of those famous spas, private yoga and meditation lessons and time well spent together.
