One of the most common questions we get asked seems to be variations along the line of "is Nusa Lembongan a family friendly destination"? In short yes, Nusa Lembongan is a wonderful destination for a family holiday with children of all ages, whether it be babies, toddlers, young kids or teenagers, there is plenty to do for the whole family. In this blog we discuss information particularly useful for families with children and we try to answer some of the more common questions. "Children" and "families" are quite broad topics and with us having guests from all over the world with different proficiencies and familiarities (particularly around water). We discuss topics relevant to a range of ages from babies to infants, to young children right the way through to adolescents and older teenagers, so as you read through, you will need to pick out the snippets of information relevant to your family. Why Nusa Lembongan is a great family friendly destination? Nusa Lembongan offers a very unique mix of characteristics that make it an incredible family friendly destination. 1. The island is not too remote and easily accessible. It takes approximately 30 minutes on the fast boat to get to Nusa Lembongan from Bali. Kids tend to find the boat ride quite an experience in itself! 2. The island is small, so no long car trips to go site seeing. There is hardly any traffic on the island, so getting around is either in a taxi (small trucks with bench seats in the back), or golf buggies are very popular for families. 3. The island is jam packed with activities and things to do for all ages - read on for more discussion on particular activities for kids. 4. There is a small community (almost country town) feel to the island. Everyone knows everyone. There is basically no crime on Nusa Lembongan and the locals are super friendly, welcoming and love children of all ages. This is great peace-of-mind for families with young children, and also families with older teenage children, where they are having a taste of freedom and might be doing some more exploring unsupervised. 5. There is decent access to medical in the event of the unforeseen.

The island offers excellent opportunity to introduce your children to new concepts, cultures, languages and activities that they may not have access or exposure to back home.

Ohana's beachfront resort & beach club for families

Ohana is a Hawaiian word that means family. Naturally, our resort caters to families. The owners of the resort created Ohana's really as an extension of what they enjoy in life and as a place for them, and others, to share wonderful times with their families. The resort (whilst obviously very beautiful), has been purposefully designed to have an informal, casual and homely feel to it. Families of all ages, from the newborn to the grandparents can all feel comfortable, and there are areas and amenities for everyone. The location Being situated on the absolute beachfront in the heart of the main town, means you'll be hard pressed to find a better location on the island of Nusa Lembongan. For families this means we have a beautiful ocean and beach out the front, and within walking distance are dozens of restaurants, cafes, boutiques, spas and local stores. You pretty much never need to get transport unless exploring the island, and even then the longest ride is about 15-minutes to the opposite side of the island.

The amenity The property caters for children of all ages. We have high chairs in the restaurant and cribs available for the accommodation. There is a kids specific menu at the restaurant, though the main menu also is very accessible to children. The wood-fired pizzas are often a hit too with the kids. Youngsters also love that we light the bonfire each night and cook marshmallows at sunset. We have the world's biggest pool and playground at our doorstep (the ocean and beach), and two pools at the resort. Both pools have shallow ends. For teenagers, they will love exploring up and down the beach and the local shops, paddle boarding and swimming out the front in the ocean, we also have the best surf breaks on the island at the outer reefs directly out the front of the resort. Our team can help you in organising all activities, for example go snorkelling (get picked up by boat right from our beach), or hire a golf buggy to explore the island.

The rooms We have great options for families, and our rooms have flexible bedding configurations to accommodate families with different numbers of children, and children of different ages. The Suites and Junior Suites are very popular for families with children. In this set up, the parents are typically in the main bedroom, and the living room of the Suites or Junior Suites is converted with bedding for the children. The beds in the living room are proper sprung mattresses for the children. The floorplans on the individual room type section of the website have images to better illustrate this. Sometimes parents will choose to put older teenage kids in one of their own rooms, and that is also fine. Often parents will stay in one of the Suites or Junior Suites (as they are a bit more luxurious), and older teenage children stay in the Deluxe Garden Rooms. The rooms are close by (within 20m of each other), though also give everyone a little bit more space if that is what they are after. The 3-bedroom villa with private plunge pool is a great option for larger families or those again wanting more space.

We were a little bit reluctant to include this section, as we are not able to provide an exhaustive list on child safety, and common sense prevails, though there are possibly some things to highlight that might not be as relevant back in your home country (if you are an international guest).

Give street animals their distance

Traffic can be unpredictable

Wear helmets on motorbikes - even if you're not the one driving

Keep an eye on kids around power points and electricity
