If you have read any of my other reviews, you might guess that we own timeshare with Royal Beach Resorts. We do. When on holiday in Bali for the fourth time, with our then 2 yo daughter, my husband organized to go to the spiel, and get a free week in Bali. Well, now she is 10, and has a 7 year old brother, and we have converted to points and have the equivalent of 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom villa. Useable at any of the resorts in south east Asia, and bankable for a couple of years, or we can swap for other resorts. The annual maintenance is steep. The plus is that it makes us take relaxing holidays and it Is the best style of holidaying with kids, which is why we did it. All the Royal resorts in Bali are smaller, intimate, with various styles of accommodation, from 2-3 br villas to hotel rooms. I even recall giving feedback at some point that they should get a resort in Sanur. Bingo. They bought and renovated a cute little place, tucked behind buildings on the bypass. Cleverly positioned fountains disguise the traffic noise, which, in Bali tends to quiet down after 8-9pm. The pool is right out front of the building, and the restaurant is the time we stayed, tucked behind it at the rear of the block. Sunken bar off the pool. It really was perfect for a family with kids. Can see them from the rooms easily, great pool, as always great personal staff, and spotless. Once you get used to crossing the bypass, you can walk to the beachfront or the Jalan Tamblingan restaurant and bar strip. The food is great, of course, and not as cheap as outside. But how nice to dine a few steps away from your peacefully sleeping kids, from where you can see the door to your self contained villa, at a table in front of the pool, in the moonlight, the fountains playing, the fragrance of frangipani in the warm air....Bliss.
