Family holidays in Bali & Sumatra

Bali and Sumatra are the ideal Indonesian islands for family holidays. Kids will love cycling between rice terraces and visiting mystical temples, and there are plenty of activities to keep the whole clan busy, including a trip to Monkey Forest in the town of Ubud or relaxing on Bali’s famous beaches. For a taste of Indonesian hospitality, spend the night in a homestay where your family will enjoy home-cooked meals and hikes through green valleys with your hosts.

Family accommodation options

Bali and Sumatra have fantastic family-friendly accommodation with choices ranging from countryside hotels amongst lush rice paddies to welcoming homestays and traditional guesthouses with volcano views. These islands are well known as a family destination but we’ll help you get off the beaten track for a true Indonesian experience. We offer four different accommodation styles, ranging from simple to in-style. Our Travel Specialists will be able to guide you in the right direction for your budget.

Flexible trips packed with adventure

Our bite-sized 2-4 day Indonesia trips piece together easily, giving families the chance to create a personalised holiday. It’s well-known that kids need plenty of entertainment and we’re happy to advise on extra activities to keep them busy. Alternatively, why not browse our ready-made family itinerary choices which can be tweaked to your liking?


Getting around in Bali

With your own private car and driver or small minibus transfers, travelling through Bali and Sumatra is childsplay. The roads are well maintained and our private transfers give you the flexibility to stop where you like for a photo opportunity or a snack break. Bali is a relatively small island and transfer times are short (max 4 hours) meaning you’ll be at your next destination in no time.

Peace of mind with our local partners

We work with a local partner in Indonesia who supports our Meaningful Travel ethos and is dedicated to ensuring your trip runs smoothly once you arrive in the country. We only use local Indonesian guides and drivers during all excursions and the staff from our local office are available 24/7 should you need assistance at any point during your trip. Why not learn a few local words from your guides and drivers along the journey – ideal for bartering at the markets!
