Five reasons to choose Sheraton Bali for your next family vacation

Kuta Beach
Kuta Beach, Bali

Bali is a popular travel destination for a short, beach getaway.

Asher and I went on a father and son only getaway last month. This was the first time I traveled alone with Asher without Rachel. Usually, the mother is the one taking care of the child during a family vacation while the father takes care of the itinerary. For this trip, I had to do everything and it turned out pretty okay.

We stayed at Sheraton Bali, the only 5-star resort in Kuta and flew with JetStar, which offers two daily flights to Bali from Singapore.

The hotel is located in the heart of the bustling Kuta Beach where all the actions are. Jamie’s Italian is nearby and at the connected upscale shopping mall, Beachwalk, adjacent to the hotel, there is a kids’ amusement park as well as a LEGO shop:

Childcare Facility

There is a free childcare centre for kids, [email protected], provided for hotel guests. This was mighty awesome for me as I was traveling alone and get to go for a massage while I checked Asher at the childcare centre.

Kids Friendly Facilities

There is a nice little kid’s pool where Asher gets to swim at every morning while I jog on the treadmill in the gym. The gym faces the pool, so I get to keep watch on him while I exercise.

There are three restaurants within the resort itself – Bene which serves Italian cuisine; Feast Restaurant which offers international cuisine; and The Lounge, for bar and drinks. Most important of all for family travellers, they offer kids menus.

Friendly Staff

The service standard is top-notch. When I checked Asher in at the childcare centre, he got to know one of the service staff so well that he asked me to bring him back there before we leave the resort so that he can say bye to the guy! Some of the other reception and wait staff also made effort to remember Asher. He was greeting and even chatting with some of them like friends by the end of our two nights stay.
