A year between family holidays is a long time. By the time we depart for this Bali family vacation in the September school holidays we are more than ready for some warm weather, relaxation and fun family times.
To get to this years Bali family holiday we fly with Garuda Indonesia again. We last flew with Garuda Indonesia in early 2015. On my new travel tips blog Tips 4 Trips, I review them once more and show why
This year (2016) we return to the Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites – the resort had been so good the year before (you can read about what we thought of them last year HERE.) But this year it is a different story. The main features we loved are still there, but overall the quality of the service has deteriorated. You can read all about this years stay on my new travel tips blog Tips 4 Trips.
We actually wished that we were staying at one of their other Prime Plaza Hotels and Resorts, in particular:
One of the most disappointing parts of our stay at the Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites was the poor quality food. Fortunately, there are plenty of other fantastic restaurants throughout Sanur.
One evening we even go across the island to the town of Seminyak to eat out.
- Fortunately, we aren’t too afraid to eat in Frankenstein’s Laboratory.
It is actually quite easy and affordable to hire a driver to get around the island of Bali. We get to know one of the driver’s at our resort and hire him a couple of times. He takes us to:
- Waterbom Bali to enjoy all the thrills and spills of the Kuta splash park
On the days we aren’t out exploring we just enjoy meandering about Sanur. We love walking along the shaded boardwalk, hiring bicycles at a cost of 75 000RPH (2 hours for 3 bikes) to explore further up and down the coast and getting massages.
We even pop over to another Prime Plaza sister hotel in Sanur the tranquil Sanur Paradise Plaza Hotel – which had better quality food.
Whilst the resort didn’t live up to our expectations this year, we still have a wonderful Bali family vacation. Thanks to all the other fantastic places we visit, explore and sample. I can’t wait to start planning another family holiday to Bali.
