I would recommend you to stay around Kuta or Legian or Seminyak, so it would give an easy access for you to hang out at the beach. Besides, they do have Waterboom park around that area and I think your kids would love to have some fun there. If you prefer to stay in a more quite place, Ubud is the best! You could stay in a place next to rice terrace and enjoy the Balinese Art in this place. In terms of nature sceneries, you can visit Uluwatu Temple. It is recommended to go there in the afternoon, so you could enjoy the sunset and remarkable Balinese dancing performance at the same time. Enjoy your stay in Bali!
Places to stay: Sanur or Kuta. Places to visit:
One day Cultural Route (5 hours)
Village Batubulan for the 1 hour Barong dance every day 09.30am. Monkey Forest of Ubud, Palace of Ubud and its traditional market, Tegallalang for the beautiful rice terrace, Goa Gajah Temple for the sacred archeological temple from 9th century. Lunch around Ubud.

Nature Route (around 6 hours)
Ride through small streets along the villages and rice fields, then take highway to one of the best terraced rice fields of Bali, the fruit & vegetable market of Candi Kuning, Ulundanu temple at the very shore of Lake Beratan.
Lunch around Pacung.

However mainly activities of the Balinese self are already unique and rich in culture. We have our new year on March 26th (purfication ceremony is done on the eve of the new year, though) and 2 other great ceremonies.

Kuta is crowded yet offer more facilities and activities for the children and adults, while Sanur is quieter.
Hi, answering to your question...It depends on your need n interested in...such as : if you want a crowded area like closer to the beaches, restaurants and shops....easy to find a taxi or other transport...I suggest you to stay at Kuta or Legian area.....In this area, you can easily find many tours which you can compare the price. But if You want to stay close to nature sceneries or such a quiet place....you can stay at Nusa Dua Area ( a lot of four or five star hotels around here also have a beaches where you can play a paraceiling or banana boat ) or Ubud Area closed to mountain( Where you can see the Barong Dance or can find a lot of Original Hand Made Art from Bali ) ...You can arrange a tour to Tanjung Benoa ( in this area Children can see an eagle, snake,etc. Or to Garuda Wisnu Kencana where in here you can take a good picture or to Water Boom (at Kuta area)...where children can swim n play, or to Bali Zoo or Bali Bird Park....Also if you can you have to try Bali's famous food also such as Babi Guling (Pork) or other local food...it's Delicious.
Actually there is still a lot place to visit in Bali, such as Lovina Beach Area...its famous with dolphin in the morning...or To Sanur Area or Seminyak Area...
Each area have a different unique or special view.
You can email me again to ask or if you want me to help you to arrange for your trip to Bali...
Suggested Itineraries in Bali..

A visit to Bali is, as always, replete with kingly comforts, beautiful resorts, fine dining, and immersion in an ancient culture amid an island dreamscape. The following 2-week plan starts you off in Seminyak and then takes you to Ubud, Gunung Bakur, Menjangan, Jimbaran Bay, and Tanjung Banoa. The last stop is Nusa Dua, where you can treat yourself to a luxury spa.

Days 1-2: Seminyak

This hip, yuppie beachside enclave is a great alternative to the overrun Kuta just south of here. Lounge at the oceanfront pool at the luxurious Legian. The next day, take a surf lesson at the Rip Curl School of Surf, followed by a sunset cocktail and dinner at Ku De Ta. Dance late into the night at Hu'u Bar.

Days 3-4: Ubud

The 1-hour drive to Ubud takes you from the shore to the lush rice paddies and jungles of Bali. The stellar Chedi Club, a collection of boutique private villas with personal butlers, is worth every rupiah. Take a morning trek through the rice paddies and get a back scrub and rub at Ubud Body Works Center, a great value spa. The next day, peruse the numerous housewares shops on Monkey Forest Road and take a break at Monkey Forest, where you can feed the monkeys a few bananas. Late in the afternoon, take the 1-hour drive to Penelokan, a town that sits on the outer crater's edge of Gunung Batur. The digs aren't fancy here, but the best of the lot is the Lakeview Hotel.

Day 5: Gunung Batur

Make the 2-hour ascent of Gunung Batur, an active volcano. At the top, you can boil eggs in pockets of erupting steam and walk along one of the volcano's ridges. In the afternoon, hire a car for the 3-hour trip to Pemuteran, on Bali's north shore. The Matahari Beach Resort provides beachside bungalows and Michelin-star-worthy dinners.

Days 6-7: Diving & Snorkeling in the North

Enjoy a snooze on the north shore's less touristed beaches or canoe in the calm waters. The next day, take a dive boat to Menjangan, Bali's premier dive spot. Dive or snorkel in crystal-blue waters with ample coral, turtles, and fish of every color.

Days 8-9: Jimbaran Bay

Hire a car to the romantic yet local area of Jimbaran Bay, home to a number of the world's top resorts. The cream of the crop are the Ritz-Carlton Bali and the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay. Even if you don't stay at the Ritz, be sure to make an appointment at its world-class spa -- it features a unique therapy pool called the Aquatonic, which delivers a massage and light workout via jet streams. Visit the cliffside temple Uluwatu at sunset, followed by a grilled lobster and shrimp dinner at Menega Cafe, the best seafood hut on Jimbaran beach.

Days 10-11: Tanjung Benoa

A half-hour taxi ride away, this fishing village offers great watersports and world-class Balinese cooking schools. For cooking fanatics like myself, I recommend the Rumah Bali guesthouse, which offers lessons right on its premises. The next day, windsurf, water-ski, or take a catamaran out onto the sea. Relax with a poolside cocktail at Tao before enjoying a scrumptious Thai meal at this much-talked-about restaurant.

Days 12-14: Nusa Dua

End your holiday by winding down beachside or poolside at any number of the resorts in this five-star enclave. If you're seeking a peaceful and quiet alternative to the brand-name resorts, head to the pristine Balé, a series of minimalist villas with ocean views. The Westin Resort Nusa Dua offers fantastic restaurants and a top-notch spa.


Enjoy the paradise!!
you and your kids can visit nusa dua, kute beach, sanur beach and for the culture's knowledge you can visit buleuleung town.

Beaches in Bali are usually narrow, so don't worry bout your child too much :)
both Kuta and Sanur is crowded and dirty, I hate those place nowadays. For beach kindly try double six, it's clean and nice.
For cultural stuffs, Bali have plenty of it. If you have time try to visit Besakih and Uluwatu.

A combination betwen culture, schneries and also your children interest. should you need more information, please don't hesitate to contact me. my mail adresse : email
as simple as there's too many possibilities. email me at email and give me more informations. c y.
Since you mention that your children will get cranky when they walk or travel too long, then I assume your children are still very young if not babies. In this case I suggest you stay at Nusa Dua area (though hotels are more expensive), yet the beach are private and the sea are calmer. Thus, good for the children.
As for visit to culturaly important places, you can arrange a day tour from your hotels. Usually they will already have a route to visit important places, such as Uluwatu temple (beautiful sunset), Ubud (paintings), Celuk (gold/silver craft). You can take your children to Waterboom park at kuta area, bali bird park and elephant ride. At Sanur, you can do underwater walk or you can choose the submarine ride.
You can take your children to Ubud for a painting class or dance class. However, I think you need to spend a night or two in Ubud to do this. Catch a dance performance in one of the temple in Ubud too.
Hope this help! Enjoy your visit!

Am I too late in replying to this?
I think Bali is a great place for kids. You can go dolphin watching (even swim in pools with the dolphins), safe beaches, safari and marine parks, turtle sanctuaries, zoos and cultural activities.
I can help you organise everything at the cheapest prices. Just contact me on email.
Hi,
It is very easy to make your time enjoyable, just stay at the fair rate hotel. Kuta is the best placed . Dont spend to much for transport if you want to shop. There are many activities to do for kids, certainly they will happy. I recomend you places: Turtle conservation, Nuda Dua area,GWK cultural park,See the Sun set at Uluwatu before having dinner at jimbaran bay. So I suggest you not too far trip from the hotel. I have many option to offer you. Thank you
