    It's the ocean, but in an enclosed area. It's called Bali Dolphins and can be hard to get a booking but worth calling to see if they have a spot. They mention age restrictions on the web but are fairly relaxed about them.

    We LOVED it! Friends of our took their 2 yr old and whilst he wouldn't come in the water with us he loved looking at the dolphins and the staff were amazing with him.

    We got back from Bali a week ago with DS (18months), a couple of the things we done:

    *waterbom park
    *safari park - DS LOOOVED this. He oooed & ahhed the whole way around and had the whole bus in stitches laughing at him. He enjoyed the animal show & baby orangutan too. (heads up though, the lion restaurant only has one highchair so if you use one for DD it may not be available like it was for us. however the chair are fairly easy to sit a toddler on)
    *indoor play centre. Yep, not very touristy at all. But after a couple of days shopping and hanging out at the villa it was nice for him to be boisterious and kid like in a safe environment for an hour or two.

    Next time we would like to go on a submarine tour, I picked up the brochure on the last day so did get time this trip.

    and apart from that one of us (we had 6 adults) just used to take him for a wander. He loved all the bikes so he would walk up and down the streets pointing at them.

    have fun!

    You will love it!! Take a waterproof camera if you have one, they give you heaps of photo opportunities kissing and cuddling the dolphins!

    I am planning our trip over atm and using the tripadvisor website and I am pretty sure that on the forum it mentions that the little kids area of waterbomb park is closed atm so you may want to check that out before going if this will alter your decision to go.

    If you have not used this site yet you may find it useful for some ideas and the forum is very active.

    I was there 2 weeks ago, a part of it is closed for upgrading but there is still a decent size pool with playequipment, hosey things, and the big bucket that fills and drops. Its not got everything that but its got plenty for a toddler. We enjoyed a day there, DS also sat in DH knee down a calm tube ride and around the lazy river.

    We were at waterbom 2 weeks ago, and they are currently upgrading the kids area with a opening date in June this year, though there are some things for toddlers and was impressed that they offered toddler sized life jackets around the park too!

    Bumping this thread and wanting to ask if any one has any recommendations for places to stay, particularly around Seminyak? We will be taking 2 year old DS with us in October for a week. I'm overwhelmed by the variety of places to choose from so thought I'd ask here!

    We stayed with some friends at a Villa just near Seminyak with our 18mo. Called Villa Kula. It was fabulous and very toddler friendly. There are so many hotels around the area though.

    I really recommend that you look up the tripadvisor website and the very busy forum on Bali and you will get heaps of info on places to stay and things to do with a toddler
