Have just returned from 10 days - second time to a Club Med, first time to Bali. We ALL had a great time and I would highly recommend this resort to all kinds of families, but particularly those who are quite active. We have 3 children, a 6, 4 and 1 year old. The 6 and 4 year old went to mini-club most days. A typical day would start at 9am and finish at 9pm with a 'shower break' from 5-7pm and would include circus school (learning trapeze skills), archery, kayaking, beach games, tie-dying t-shirts, rehearsing a show, being in a show, painting etc etc. You can opt in and out of any of these activities if you/your child wishes and all activities are on-site so it's easy to pick-up your kids or watch them. The mini-club is extremely well run and organised. The staff are very friendly, engaged and really appear to enjoy their jobs. The option is there for your children to eat with their new friends in a supervised section of the restaurant with the mini-club GO's. SO basically you can realistically have large sections of the day to yourself to do as little or as much as you like. There is a fabulous quiet pool area (no kids) with lovely day beds to read, and other numerous well run activities. I took part in the power walk in the morning and tennis lessons which were both fantastic. Hubby played golf and had lessons each day, did the golf comps etc
The rooms are great, they are not 5 star luxury more like 4 star, but really comfortable and clean, serviced daily and nice products, including oil burners and incense sticks which I thought were a nice touch. No face washers. We were really concerned about the food, not being a fan of buffets in general and being a bit of a foodie. The food was fantastic. The clientele are Australians (40% approx), Japanese, Korean, French, Chinese and this is reflected in the food offering. The Asian food is really good, high quality food, cooked well and huge variety. There are the usual, pizza, pasta, roasts, chips, chops for those who really can't try something new, but the Asian food is fabulous. AND thanks to the French, delicious imported French cheeses and fresh bread daily, french sticks of all varieties. If you want a luxury, high end resort, and just want to lay by the pool, there would be better options in Bali. If you want a fantastic holiday with a mix of activity and relaxation and the children really having the time of their lives (not just being supervised, or watched by a nanny by the pool), then this is the place to go. All baby kit, including strollers, is provided by the resort. Baby sitting is cheap and provided by an off-site agency. The baby sitters arrive in a uniform and are well know to the staff. We had one in the mornings for our 1 year old and she would be taken to 'petit club' for a few hours (no extra charge if she's being supervised) and then be taken for walks, fed in the restaurant etc. I would highly recommend our sitter, Darmine (pronounced Darminey) through the agency (the reception give you all the details) and you pay them cash (she also did our laundry). Would defo go back again.
