Choosing Mountains Over Mayhem – Ubud For Families

Bali holidays need not be all beach clubs, Bintangs and battling crowds. While popular tourist areas in the south continue to draw the party crowd and beach lovers, many visitors are now seeking a more real and relaxed Bali experience.

About an hour’s drive from the international airport and into cooler climates, Ubud has become a firm favourite for families and xenophiles who are after an alternative to beaches and noisy bars. Originally famed for being the island’s artisan’s hub, there’s much more to Ubud than galleries and workshops with its impressive list of sights, activities and experiences for every age group.

Outdoorsy types will love the many walking trails that crisscross Ubud area such as Campuhan Ridge offering stunning views of rice fields, river valleys with quaint open-air cafes that beckon for stops along the way! A short drive from Ubud town centre affords views of one of the world’s most iconic rice terraces along with adrenalin fueled attractions such as swings to propel you up and over the valley below! Many of Bali’s most picturesque waterfalls are located close to Ubud along with many other culturally significant sites and temples.

For families with a day of action in mind, the Ayung River is home to a number of top rated white water rafting companies or you can opt for quad biking adventures, downhill cycling tours and even a sunrise mountain climb. Ubud boasts some of Bali’s best culinary offerings from family friendly casual eateries and cosy coffee shops to fine dining from Michelin star chefs!

While there are abundant villa options for families, many of these are located on the outskirts of town and can pose a strain the purse strings. Bisma Cottages is a boutique property located within walking distance of Ubud’s must see attractions and offers family friendly accommodation at an affordable price. Despite its central location, Bisma Cottages is situated on a quiet no through road fringed by rice fields. Just five minute’s walk and guests will find themselves at Ubud’s renowned Monkey Forest with a fifteen minute stroll in the opposite direction landing them at the Ubud Royal Palace, Ubud Market or Campuhan Ridge walk. Central Ubud is ideal for pedestrians with accessible footpaths and plenty of opportunity for retail therapy!

Providing a refreshing and affordable alternative to some of the larger, less personable accommodation options, Bisma Cottages is well suited to families of all ages. Their Deluxe cottage features a queen size four poster bed and separate living area with a large day bed and ample room for another extra bed to accommodate a family of four in comfort. It’s an ideal choice for families with smaller children while Bisma’s two bedroom adjoining cottages are perfect for tweens or teens needing a little more privacy and space to themselves. The cottages frame a delightful pool area ready for RnR after a day out and about! Check out Bisma Cottages’ Family Package deal including 3 nights in a 2 bedroom cottage and FREE Ubud Highlights Full Day Tour.
