Travel with children does not need to be a hassle. And it can be one of the best experience you have as a family. The key ingredients to a smooth trip with kids is finding the right balance between keeping your kids entertained, giving them rest times between, and ensuring you and your spouse also enjoy some much needed time off.
Parents share their tips here…
#1 Budget talks
First and foremost, sit down with your whole family and discuss your ideas and interests. Discuss budgets, expectations, weather conditions, and how you can work with the budget available to plan an exciting family trip and avoid someone’s interest being neglected and ignored to make way for another’s.
#2 Where to stay
Pick the perfect hotel that caters for both parents and children’s needs. They do exist… And ask about Family Deals — Enquire about special rates or even complimentary meals for children, and an upgrade at check in. AYANA Resort and RIMBA Jimbaran checked YES on most of the things above. The 5-star resort offers an excellent family deal… the perfect family holiday with recreation for the kids, relaxation for you. The deal includes two rooms with a 50% saving on the second room, and daily breakfast for four people.
#3 Unplug for children
Pick hotels that offer on-site babysitting. The hotels mentioned above have them. And the children pool with waterslide and Kids Club activities will be a good bribe if you want to sneak in extra time for a romantic dinner or spa treatment with your partner.
#4 Check the Dining Options — Does the hotel restaurant and room service have a kids’ menu? Is there enough variety on the menus to please everyone? Luckily AYANA and RIMBA offer 15 venues to discover. Even the most picky eater in your family will not complain!
#5 Last… Sit back and enjoy the ride!
