When travelling with kids, choosing the right accommodation is crucial. You need to choose a place where the design is both safe and suitable for children, but also offers them fun and entertainment.
It’s also important to find accommodation that’s close to the action, so that it’s easy to head out as a group and parents can slip away for a little alone time when needed (baby sitting services are a bonus, too!).
Luckily, the fabulous Villa Abakoi has both: great child-friendly design and an unbeatable location in Seminyak, Bali.
Stylish Living in the Tropics
Villa Abakoi has a chic yet playful design that mixes beautifully woven Indonesian textiles with vibrant modern art. As you step through the villa’s private gate, you’re ushered into to the spacious living and dining room. The dining table seats up to 10 guests and the generous sofas offers room for at least many people. In true tropical style, the living room has an open-plan layout which allows you to enjoy views of garden – and keep an eye on the kids playing in the pool.
The 16-metre pool offers plenty of room for splashing around or even clocking some serious laps. There are deck chairs for serious sun baking, while the covered gazebo doubles as an alfresco living room thanks to comfortable lounge seating. There are a few steps leading down to the pool, so the kids can dip their toes without plunging straight into the deep end.
Villa Abakoi has six bedrooms and can sleep up to 14 guests. Travelling with a bigger group? No problem! Villa Abakoi shares a connecting wall with Villa Tangram and booked together these two villas make up an 11-bedroom property. If you book the villas individually, you’ll be guaranteed absolute privacy as the villas are fully self-contained – but it’s good to know there are options close by.
A Kiddie Haven
In addition to the four double bedrooms and one twin, Villa Abakoi has one of the cutest bunk bedrooms in Bali. The beds have two double beds on the bottom and two single beds on top. What makes this room even more family-friendly is that it’s connected to one of the double bedrooms, so parents can check up on the kids with ease.
If you’re looking for more privacy, both rooms also have their own private entrances and ensuite bathrooms, so the configuration is flexible. If you’re travelling with an infant, a baby cot is also available.
But being family-friendly is not just about offering the right kind of beds. It’s also important to keep the kids happy and entertained. Every bedroom in Villa Abakoi has its own TV and DVD player and the villa also has an extensive DVD and book library. When the kids aren’t busy splashing around in the pool or watching movies, you can host a family game night thanks to the villa’s collection of board games.
Prime Location in Seminyak
Villa Abakoi sits in a quiet lane just of Jalan Drupadi in Seminyak. Jalan Drupadi is hoem to some great restaurants. We love Zibiru for Italian food and live jazz and Raffs for burgers and live sports. If the options on Jalan Drupadi are not enough, you can always walk over to Eat Street – the stroll over takes just 10 minutes. Seminyak Beach is a 10-minute walk away. If you’re looking to pick up some groceries, Bintang Supermarket is less than 10 minutes away by car.
The Dream Team
So you’ve got great location and great kid-friendly facilities. But a stay at Villa Abakoi just wouldn’t be complete without the super attentive staff. Nyoman and his team will go above and beyond to make your stay as blissful as humanly possible.
The in-house staff includes a villa manager and butlers and the villa’s rate includes a fabulous daily breakfast. If you need chef services or a baby sitter, or perhaps want to book a car and driver to show you around the island, they can be arranged at an additional cost.
