They says family who travel together stays together. But nobody tells you how much it takes for parents to maintain their sanity during their family trip to Bali. While it’s the dream of parents to see the kids happy and make precious memories to cherish for a lifetime, Mom’s and Dad’s patience can quickly run thin with all the drama and shenanigans at every unexpected times. It’s difficult to travel with children under the age of five, and no one likes to be outnumbered by little children at the airport, on a plane, or at the beach. This is why finding a Bali family resorts with kids club can be your saviour. We’ve seen many families haven’t use this service for years and asking where on earth they’ve been upon trying the kids club for the first time.
Kids Club Give Parents A Necessary Time-Out
Resorts often advertise a kid’s club as a place where kids can have all the time to themselves. While it’s true and kids do have fun, what kids club actually gives is time for yourself. So you can breathe and actually relax while you’re on a well-deserved, hard-earned vacation. The kids club at Holiday Inn resort Bali, for example, is a happy place with lots of things to do. For parents, however, it’s a valuable perk that they can drop off their little, beloved trouble-makers from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm. During that time you can try riding a waterski, bike around the Nusa Dua, getting pampered in Balinese spa, sip a cup of coffee, and reading in peace.

Maintaining the Perfect Balance for Your Vacation in Bali Family Resorts
Holidays are great for family time, and we had plenty of that, but being able to balance it with time alone to sunbathe without having to keep half an eye on the kids, read your book without interruption, or simply sit and have lunch with your spouse/ parents while knowing the kids were having a good time was such a revelation. It turned out that spending some time separately turned out to be the perfect balance we needed from our vacation in the Nusa Dua family resort.
It maintains a fair level of balance. Holidays are a great time for families to reconnect and spend time together. However, let’s be real; it’s impossible to do this every year. Separation time is still essential. Parenting is the most difficult job in the world, and taking a few hours to yourself to refuel may make a huge difference in your family’s life. We parents are re-charged and ready to play in the pool, spend hours making sandcastles at the beach, or spend the evening playing cards and giving our children and family our entire attention since we have the luxury of being able to relax when the kids are in kids club. It’s the best of both worlds.
Dropping the Kids to the Club
It’s almost a rite of passage for kids to resist the kids club. Experts recommend making a compromise with your little skeptic—they must at least try a half-day—and then planning a fun activity together later. However, a lot of kids leave the kids club feeling good about themselves. Some parents also note that they become more social and bump into new friends at the resorts’ restaurants during the vacation.
The Professionals at Kids Club Keeps Kids Happy
The staff is always in ‘fun mode,’ which is more than a tired mother and father can say. The staff are always so full of energy and put so much effort into ensuring all of the kids have a great time and are happy. There are so many activities to choose from, and most of them are free. You can find ranges of activities from bouncy castles, wall climbing, face painting, drawing, mini car riding, crafts, movie time, and many more. For the kids, it’s something thousand times more fun than what their parents can do.

Managing the Guilt About the Kids Club
If you feel guilt about leaving the kids at the club, frame is as a necessary and constructive break for the whole family. Sometimes you spend too many times fighting with your own kids and that’s because you’re with each other all the time, 24/7. The time away from the kids and quality times with yourself will make you a better parent. Then, both you and the kids can enjoy a happier family vacation in the Bali resorts together.
Some parents were also pleased to notice that their children were making new acquaintances at the dinner buffet.
