Kid Friendly Safety
We know that children safety is important for many guests, and so we regularly check our villas for child safety and recommend and make improvements to the villas listed on kidfriendlyvillas.com all the time to make them as safe as we can. It is impossible however to make any villa 100% safe for children of course, and this is particularly true in Bali where those great views and beautiful architecture, often go hand in hand with potentially dangerous drops, or water features that you have to watch out for with little children.
Although the general standard of safety features in Bali is less than you would find in countries such as Australia, the approach to safety is also different. In Bali families with small children use maids and other staff to watch over children and ensure they are safe, rather than relying on the construction of physical barriers such as pool fences and stair gates for safety.
All of the villas listed on kidfriendlyvillas.com have staff who are used to, and have many years looking after small children, and they are happy to help watch over your little ones if you want them to, or to baby sit if you require it, all included in the price although we do ask for guests to consider a small tip to the staff if they are asked to work later than 9 pm.
The safety villa ratings here therefore are a guideline based upon the physical safety features at the villas, rather than the softer approach of using staff to look after and keep children safe that is the usual way in Asia and that in our view is as good, and can often be better than, the physical barrier approach preferred in the West.
