9 Reasons Why Villas Make the Perfect Family Holiday Accommodation When You Have Small Children

Sponsored post

Have you ever been away for ‘a break’ with your family, and come home feeling exhausted and like you need another holiday just to get over that one! Trust us, you are not alone! Having small children can be tough, and sadly they don’t turn into little angels just because you are on a tropical island somewhere. But, with a little careful planning, it is possible to get that all important rest and relaxation that most of us crave so desperately when we are in the early years of raising little people. We’ve got one word for you…villa!

If you are used to booking a package holiday to Bali, there is a good chance that renting a private villa hasn’t even occurred to you. In which case, it is very possible that we are about to change your life and the way you choose to holiday with your family in the future.

Here’s 9 excellent reasons why villas are perfect when you are traveling to Bali with small children.

  1. Let’s face it, most hotel rooms only have room for 2 adults and 2 children (with very limited privacy for parents). The beauty of renting a villa is that there is the options of having separate rooms.
  2. Villas also have plenty of living areas, inside and out, so you and your family have lots of space to make yourselves at home. No more squashing past the pram or the luggage on your way to the (shared) toilet in the middle of the night.
  3. It can be far more cost effective to rent a villa than to stay at a hotel, especially for larger families and even those traveling with three or more children.

  4. Babies and toddlers often still need to nap during the day. Heck, so do their parents! In a private villa you don’t have to worry about whether the maid will come in and disturb your siesta or if you’ve popped the ‘do not dusturb’ sign out on the door.
  5. Similarly, there are no neighbouring holiday makers in the room adjoining yours, waking you and your little ones up at god knows what time, as they stumble home from a night out.

  1. In a villa, you can do everything to your own schedule. You don’t have to be at breakfast, lunch or dinner at during certain times, and you don’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn to try to get a sun longer near to the pool…because you’ll have a pool all to yourself!
