If you are looking for kids friendly vacation spots in Bali, then you’ve come to the right article! Here are 7 destinations that are not only exciting for your whole family, but also have been granted CHSE certification for their remarkable health protocol implementation.
Fancy an exhilaratingly fun and kids-friendly activity? A waterpark ride at Waterbom Bali might just be what you and your family needs. Spanning 3,8 hectares, this is considered as Bali’s most popular waterpark. It is located in the Kuta area and only a 6-minute drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport.
There are so many exciting rides you can experience at Waterbom Bali, but we strongly suggest you try the Smashdown 2.0, which is a slide ride of 26 meters high! After spending time splashing around, you can dine at The Shack: a Caribbean-inspired beach hut amongst the pool where you can choose plenty of mouthwatering cuisine to eat.
There’s nothing more exciting than bringing your kids to see wild animals and seeing how curious they are. Therefore, we recommend you visit Mason Elephant Park & Lodge. Set within 4 hectares of area, this park was established in 1997 as a sanctuary to the 32 Sumatran elephants due to the devastating past situation which endangered the species. Therefore, this park has been carefully designed to mimic the original habitat of the elephant’s native home in Sumatra.
Located not far from Ubud, you will be welcomed by a cool breeze, lush environment, and tranquil atmosphere as you arrive at the site. Aside from mingling with and bathing the elephants, you can also try its adrenaline-rushing white water rafting activities and buggy driving through the jungle. For a more slow-adventure experience, you can trek over the scenic hinterlands and the ancient Hindu village of Taro.
Most kids love to play with dolls. Therefore, bringing them to Bali Doll House will simply make a memorable experience for them. This doll gallery is located in Gianyar and specifically built to bring fun and excitement to the conventional museum experience. Bali Doll House is a home for around 1,000 dolls worldwide, which are segmented into 12 individual chambers with each chamber having its own educational story. There are many kinds of dolls here, including the ones that represent provinces in Indonesia, popular movies, and also superheroes.

There are many exciting rides in Krisna Funtastic Land, such as Singaraja Flyer (a 30-meter high ferris wheel), Star Tour (a bicycle-themed tilt-a-wheel), Carousel, and many others. There are also selfie areas for you and your kids to take pictures in. Most importantly, this place has been granted CHSE certification for its health protocol implementation.
