Reviews: Family Accommodation, Flights, Airports

When we travel I always try to take care and choose the best possible family accommodation and flights (and transits) that suits our little family the best.

Whilst I do write reviews for “Trip Advisor” I am also going to write detailed reviews for you with lots of pictures. To help you to decide if this is the right family accommodation and flight (with transits) for you.


Frankenstein’s Laboratory Bali – Are You Afraid? 16

I am a little disappointed as we are guided to a polished wooden table that is located near the waiter station behind a support column – ensuring I have an obstructed view of the Frankenstein’s Laboratory stage. We have arrived on time at 4:30pm for the family session, having been enticed by the Frankenstein’s Laboratory website statement, […]

My Review of Bali Dynasty Resort’s Family Facilities 4

It’s been voted in Holiday with Kids  Top 10 Family Resorts for the last seven years.  Little wonder that 90% of their clientele are from the family travel market. Which family friendly resort is it? The Bali Dynasty Resort located on the popular Kuta beach front on the Indonesian island of Bali. Last week we checked […]


My BIG4 Beachlands Holiday Park Review 6

During the recent school holidays of April 2016 we took a welcome family getaway/holiday to Busselton with kid(s) with the aim of exploring the entire Margaret River Region. I quite like using Busselton as a base for our family holidays to the Margaret River Region as: Busselton is only 2½ hours from Perth I consider […]

Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites

My Say: The Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites Review 24

After much deliberation selecting a suitable accommodation for our family holiday to Bali, I choose the Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites. The Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites are continually voted in the top 10 family resorts on Trip Advisor and Holiday with Kids. But do I think the Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites is really worth all those […]


An Airline Review: Virgin Australia to Bali 31

I’m not a fan of discount carriers! There I’ve admitted it – which is why it has taken me so long before I have been willing to fly with Virgin Australia. Virgin entered the Australian market in 2000 under the brand of Virgin Blue -it was a discount carrier. However as of May 2011 Virgin […]

Photo Flashbacks: Busselton Mandalay Resort (Review) 16

As the summer holidays are rapidly approaching I am starting to think about a short getaway to escape Perth’s heat, just 2 and half hours south to Busselton.  As such I am considering the different accommodations available and this has made me reflect on our family getaway to Busselton in 2013 with my sister and her family […]


Photo Flashbacks: Outrigger Laguna Beach Resort Phuket Review 12

During August 2013 we ventured on our first TWO week family holiday to Phuket with kids. When you are planning on spending so much of your holiday in one place it is really worth investing your time in choosing the right family accommodation for you. So did I make the right decision for our family of […]

Shangri-la rasa sentosa review

Photo Flashbacks – Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Review 8

In 2011 Steve wanted to revisit Singapore, a destination he had visited in his early 20’s.  I was happy to see this bustling city, but I also wanted a relaxing beach family holiday. But where to stay in Singapore that’s on the beach? Then I stumbled upon information about Sentosa Island.  A small island to […]


Photo Flashbacks: Grand Hyatt Bali Review 20

Our first ever trip abroad with our son was in 2010, he was 2 and a half.  We chose to travel to Bali with a toddler due to Bali’s close proximity to Perth – only a 3 and half hour flight. When it came to choosing the right family accommodation for us, we looked for […]

In 2012 we took a family holiday to Kota Kinabalu the capital of Sabah a Malaysian state on the island of Bornio. We stayed at the beautiful Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa about 5 minutes drive from the city centre. Back then I never wrote up a review of the resort on the Toddlers […]
