I asked around a lot before booking a family holiday to Bali everyone had their favourite go to hotels they visit year after year but one hotel kept getting mentioned time and time again. After researching it online I took the plunge and booked the Dynasty Resort for our first family holiday to Bali.
The hotel is much like others in Bali from the outside and there is the hustle and bustle of Kuta on the doorstep however inside was spacious and welcoming. I wouldn’t call it luxurious but its charm was yet to come.
The family rooms were standard but fabulous for families with a separate kids room with bunk beds and their own TV and DVD. Every morning after returning from breakfast there would be a new towel origami waiting for them on their bed.
The two main restaurants where a generous buffet breakfast was displayed, were both top quality. One was outside by the pool and the other inside which had a café style feel. Having gone in the school holidays both were very busy at breakfast but the amount and selection of breakfast foods were never compromised and everyone left with very full tummies. In addition to the two main buffet restaurants, there is an Irish pub, an Asian restaurant and a café. The main restaurant had a theme night every evening which rotated throughout the week and included an Indonesian night with traditional Balinese dancers and headwear for the guests to wear.
One of the deciding factors in choosing this hotel was the reputation of the kids club. Occupying a building of its own the kids club was well managed with a full program of activities. Whilst there my children took part in fishing from the beach, crab fishing, frog hunting and then frog racing later in the day as well as movie nights, language lessons and local craft making.
There is a separate kids pool with slides, water guns and a big tip up bucket that kept them entertained for hours every day. Even children who can’t swim by themselves are safe to play and are under the watchful eye of the kids club staff. If they stay in for lunchtime for a small extra charge the children are taken to one of the main restaurants where they can choose lunch from a kids menu and eat all together at the restaurant which was an awesome independent experience for my 8 and 5-year-old.
Within the grounds, the Highflyers trapeze school operate lessons most days with guests receiving a free trial lesson each. If they enjoy the experience you can go on to book a course with a t shirt and certificate for completion at the end.
In addition to all the great kids’ facilities, there is a spa, gym, a fish spa, a gift shop, a teen club and adults only chill out pool area. There is no nice beachfront to speak of so the pool area is busy most of the day with lots of pool side activities to keep everyone entertained if that’s your thing.
I would recommend the Dynasty Bali to anyone travelling with young children to Bali. The reception was very welcoming and every effort was made to accommodate our needs. The hotel isn’t as luxurious as some I’ve seen but for fun times its worth a visit.
