A hideaway in the Balinese hills, The Damai is perfect for food-loving families.

Away from the crowds of the south, the rural retreat that is The Damai Bali hugs the hilltops of the north, overlooking the unspoilt coast of Lovina Bay. Damai means peace in Indonesian, and a stay at The Damai proves it’s more than possible to enjoy some peaceful R&R, even with children in tow. Consisting of 14 secluded villas, each uniquely decorated with Balinese antiques and traditional textiles, The Damai features outstanding panoramic views and great, nourishing food. This eco-friendly boutique resort sources most of its meat, vegetables and herbs from its own organic garden and local farms. The result is a gourmet treat. Balinese culture embraces family dining, so don’t be put off by the intimate feel of the award-winning hotel restaurant; children of all ages are encouraged to enjoy their delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner.

For You -

Upgrade to a pool villa and you’ll enjoy your own private plunge pool – keep an eye on really little ones, however – the water is deep and the edges are steep. In line with the foodie vibe of the hotel, restless adults can visit a food market with the hotel chef and learn how to rustle up an authentic Balinese dish using the fresh, local ingredients.

For Them +

There’s no organised kids club at The Damai, but staff will enthusiastically organise local trips to make sure your children are happy and involved. Early risers can take a dawn boat ride to spot Lovina’s dolphins playing in the ocean and Balinese dance classes can be arranged for mini movers and shakers. When you unwind with an evening drink, bar staff will happily whip up a bespoke non-alcoholic cocktail for the kids too.
