I have been reading through this forum and would love some help in planning our 2 week holiday in May.
We have 2 children aged 2 and 4
We would like to move a couple of times probably staying in 3 different areas, so can anyone suggest where to go? We do no want to stay in the heart of Kuta we would prefer smaller places that are great for exploring (as much as we can with 2 young ones).
Things we would be interested in are Massage, good food (but on a budget although a couple of nice nights out with good seafood would be great), facials and manicures, animal type activities for the kids... any recommendations on places that are animal friendly(with reference to the treatment of the animals) would be great. We visited Phuket last year and got some great advice of the forums to avoid the bad places. We would also like to visit some lovely cultural places. MY husband would alos love to go fishing.
Where ever we stay has to have a goo pool though, as we tend to spend alot of time in it with the kids!
I would alos prefer spacious rooms as our youngest still sleeps during the day so it would be horrible being couped up in a tiny room trying to get her to sleep.
I have looked at Lovina, is it worth while travelling there to stay for a few days??
Also can someone advise on the costs for babysitting and the most reputable resorts for this??
Budget wise we would sit fairly low i guess max $A120 a night?? Can this be done??
Gosh i think i have covered everything. Thnak you to all in advance for looking through this. I plan to do everything myself as I am not a fan of travel agents.
I am planning to travel virgin blue out of Brisbane because they r the only ones from brissy who fly directly. I am not wrapt in the idea as i hate the cramped seats on virgin but i do not want stopovers with the kids, lets get the pain all out of the way at once!!
