The Melia Bali Indonesia is an upscale resort right on the beach on Bali's southeastern coast. The 494 rooms and suites feature elegant, contemporary decor, and have patios or balconies. Several on-site restaurants serve cuisine from around the world, and there's an extensive selection of event spaces for meetings and weddings. The kids' club has activities for children ages four to 12, and while the property is definitely family-friendly, kids are not the main focus here. All-inclusive packages with food, drinks, and entertainment included are available but not mandatory.
The Grand Aston Bali Beach Resort is a luxury property located on the Tangjung Benoa peninsula, in an area dominated by similar resorts. The 188 rooms and suites are elegant and spacious, and all have terraces or balconies, many with views of the Indian Ocean. On-site facilities include a spa, a fitness center, a kids' club, and six bars and restaurants, and a lagoon-style pool -- the resort also has its own beach area. All-inclusive packages are available but not mandatory. Regular activities range from village tours to beach volleyball, and the resort offers a number of water sports, including Jet-skiing and parasailing. Bikes can be rented, and the resort operates a free shuttle service to nearby Kuta.
The 393-room Club Med Bali is an enormous, upscale all-inclusive chain resort. Rooms and suites are small and nothing spectacular, though they do have large marble bathrooms and most have balconies. It's the multitude of activities -- for all ages -- that attract visitors to this beachside resort. Along with multiple pools and sports courts, there are golf classes and water sports, even trapeze lessons. Families make up the majority of guests here, and there are activity clubs for babies, children, and teens. For adults, there's an excellent spa with its own pool and a couple of bars (though certain premium liquors and wines aren't included in the room rates).
The 301-room Grand Mirage is an upscale all-inclusive beach resort in the quiet Tanjung Benoa area. It caters to families and couples with a wide array of daily activities for all ages, free non-motorized water sports, a pool with a swim-up bar, and an excellent spa with a large hydrotherapy area and treatments also for kids. Spacious rooms have flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and free minibars (replenished daily), and all have furnished balconies, some overlooking the ocean. But the property is starting to show its age, and some rooms have maintenance issues. Those not set on staying at an all-inclusive may want to compare rates at Novotel Bali Benoa.
The 150-room Bali Tropic is a family-friendly, upscale all-inclusive with gorgeous traditional Balinese architecture and beautiful tropical gardens. Rooms are spacious and charming, with four-poster beds, lots of ornate wood and stone carvings, and amenities such as flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi and lightly stocked minibars. All units have furnished terraces and large bathrooms with walk-in showers and separate stone tubs. The property has three restaurants, including one by the beach open 24/7, and two bars, but food gets mixed reviews. There is also a decent fitness center, a relaxing spa, and a large pool with a swim-up bar and a kiddy section. Those looking for something more contemporary may want to compare rates at Sadara Boutique Beach Resort.
