The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
Taman Ahimsa’s rambling garden makes a magical playground for kids, the perfect place to play hide-and-seek, or even just chase the butterflies. There are plenty of grassy areas to kick a ball around or throw a frisbee. The pool is unfenced but there is no shortage of comfortable places for parents to relax while they watch their toddlers frolic, and pool toys are available on request.
If the kids tire of that, the beach is right on your doorstep, lapped by the balmy waters of the Indian Ocean. Here, they can collect shells and build sandcastles. Parents should be aware that the surf in Bali can be tricky and the beach here is unpatrolled so constant supervision is necessary.
During downtime kids can watch one of the many DVDs on the 32-inch plasma screen in the TV room or play with the toys provided.
The team of friendly staff at Taman Ahimsa will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
