One of the world's most idyllic island destinations, Bali is perfect for a family vacation. Among its many resorts, the InterContinental Bali stands out for its beachfront location on Jimbaran Bay and an environmental themed Planet Trekkers children's center. This dedicated kids' program, which is complimentary for Club InterContinental guests, includes sections for children ages four to seven and eight to twelve. Run by all-female club hosts and lifeguards trained in child care and first aid, the center includes a clubhouse, outdoor pool and activities such as kite making, Balinese language lessons, beach walks, yoga and shadow puppet crafts. Professional nannies for children under four and extended evening hours at the center (a healthy dinner included) mean parents can enjoy spa treatments or a quiet night out at one of the enticing on-site restaurants — and with peace of mind, since parent pagers are provided. As for family meals together, our top pick is Taman Gita, with its seafood buffet and traditional Balinese Kecak dancing every Wednesday night.
