    I took my 16 month old over xmas.We did a day at water bom park which has a great kiddy area. Also went to the safari park for the day and she loved that as well!!If you were going to both would recommend having at least 1 rest day in between, they are both BIG days

    We went last year with then-2yo and a 4yo. They did love the Safari Park, we had a driver so we went in a nice a/c car and DH had the younger one in the carrier when we were walking around.

    They both loved Waterbom Park, there is a little kids area but maybe more for 2-3+ than 1-2yo's...

    There was a small kids club in our hotel which was ok. They really just loved going in the pool, eating out and wandering around seeing the sights and markets

    We took DD (2.5 at the time) to the zoo (I think it's the same thing as the safari park??) and she loved it. It was a big day but was worth it.

    We would break up big days with rest days in between. We'd swim in the hotel pool, walk on the beach, search for shells at low tide, go for lunch etc. it wasn't hard to fill in a day.

    We also did a day trip to ubud to the monkey forest. The forest was great and DD still talks about it (1.5 years later) but the trip there sucked! We hired a driver who wanted to take us to every tourist spot along the way. If you're clear with the driver then I think it's worth doing it.

    Have fun! We're going back at the end of this year with a 4yo and a 18mo and a group of friends and their kids and we cannot wait!!!

    You could do:

    - Day trip to lembongan island
    - Butterfly park
    - Waterbom

    - Go to Lovina and swim with the dolphins - its an overnighter but I HIGHLY recommend doing this!!

    Is that in the ocean or a pool? I'm interested to know for our trip in May. I lived there for 7 years but never with a toddler so am living these suggestions too! Lovina is in a pool ... *** end of transmission ***
