10 Reasons why your next family trip to Bali should be in Umalas

The tropical island of Bali is one of the most sought after travel destinations in the world. The combination of Bali’s rich heritage, history, and culture draws many visitors from around the world to experience the island of the Gods. From solo travelers, honeymoon couples to family retreats, Bali has something to offer for everyone.

With so many popular locations to visit in Bali, it can be daunting to choose which one to list in your trip itinerary. In this article, we’ll be highlighting ten compelling reasons why you should consider Umalas as the next destination during your family trip to Bali.

Surfing in Batu Belig Beach

Located just north of Kuta Beach and on the border between Seminyak and Canggu is Batu Belig Beach. This beach is a favorite destination amongst surfers both local and foreign due to its excellent swells and vibrant community.


Sunset at Petitenget

For those wanting to catch the magical sunset of Bali with their family should consider listing Petitenget Beach on their itinerary. Petitenget Beach is located along the center of the Seminyak coastline, allowing visitors to have a scenic view from the Jimbaran Peninsula to the northern coastal areas of Canggu. Once the sun sets, you can take the family and kids for a meal in one of the many excellent beachside cafes and restaurants.

Batu Bolong Beach

Batu Bolong Beach is located just north of Batu Belig Beach and is slightly quieter than the latter. This beach is perfect for those wanting to spend quality time with their family and kids. Also, the sunset is just as amazing as any beach on the western coast of Bali with the added perk of being less crowded compared to somewhere like Kuta Beach.

Dine at Nook Restaurant

Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to have brunch in the middle of rice fields? The Nook in Umalas offers you exactly that. This open-air cafe is surrounded by local rice fields that will make for a memorable dining experience for your family and kids.

Breakfast at Monsieur Spoon

For a wholesome breakfast, treat your kids and family with the fresh artisan pastries in Monsieur Spoon. Choose from a wide selection of French pastries, eclairs, macarons, and more as you plan out your day in this cozy cafe in Umalas.

The Santai Spa & Wellness

Perhaps you’ve spent the day exploring Bali, and are in need to rejuvenate your mind and body. Choose from our wide selection of spa package deals here in our very own villa at The Santai.

Potato Beach Club

There’s a good reason why Potato Head is commonly recommended by both locals and foreigners visiting Bali. With a super chill ambiance, atmospheric tunes, and views overlooking the Indian Ocean, Potato Head Beach Club has got your evening plans covered.

Cafe Del Mar

Recently opened in late 2019 is the iconic beach club from Ibiza, Cafe Del Mar. Enjoy iconic chill music as you soak in the tropical Bali sunset with your favorite drink at hand. This picturesque beach club will have you feeling like you’ve been teleported to the Mediterranean Sea.

Dine by the Rice Fields at Sardine Restaurant

Located just under 10 minutes from The Santai is the French-Asian Sardine Restaurant. This is another excellent choice for those who want to experience dining in a unique restaurant in Umalas. In addition to the excellent cuisine, your kids and family will enjoy the scenic views overlooking the vista of lush rice paddies.
