Starting on the beach at 9 a.m., guests have the chance to to walk with the turtles as they make their way to the water. Children get first to go and receive a Ritz Kids T-shirt identifying themselves as ambassadors of the environment, and can guide the turtles to sea.

This dedication to conserving sea turtles is continued in the resort’s Ritz Kids club, where turtle-themed decorations build excitement for the hatch season and teach young guests about the importance of preserving the local environment.

Address: Jalan Bukit Permai, Jimbaran. Phone: +62 361 8466888. Le Méridien Bali Jimbaran website.

Pros: Trendy new resort with a kids club, a variety of resort restaurants and chic, modern and art filled spacious rooms.

Cons: It may be on trend but the resort is a a distance away from the hip and happening scene of Seminyak and surrounds. Classic rooms have two twin beds but only sleeps three (2 kids). The resort is not located on the beach but close to it.

There is a kids pool, garden lagoon pool and gorgeous rooftop swimming pool overlooking Legian Beach, which is across the road.  What we love about a Pullman property is that it knows families also enjoy accommodation with a touch of elegance and intimacy and it’s not just reserved for loved up couples. Making that so is their policy on free accommodation and breakfast for 1 child (the others have to pay).

Rooms are sleek in design with  with dark woods, parquet flooring and warm tones. They feature free WIFI, flat screen TVs, mini bar and fridge, safety deposit box and a yoga kit. Two bedroom spacious suites with separate bedrooms and a seating is also available and ideal for families wanting a bit more privacy.
