Bali has been a tropical holiday destination for many years now. Surfers, backpackers, families on a holiday, couples and many more kind of travelers have been visiting this island in huge numbers to enjoy its white sands and tropical sunshine, to see its beautiful temples, to surf on its famous waves and see the culture of Hinduism far away from India, the home of the religion.
Increasing tourist numbers have created increased in supply too. Hence, there is no paucity of finding a place to stay in any of Bali’s key zones, the most popular being South Bali. But, at the same time, having too many options causes a lot of headaches for the vacationing family with young kids. And it is for such people that Grand Mirage Resort offers a great value for money.
This five star resort property located on the Tanjung Benoa beach in South Bali has been around for close to two decades. During this time, they have understood the needs of their customers and have created a niche for themselves in the family friendly category. This niche ensures that families need not worry about their kids while on their holiday as their kids have enough activities to keep themselves occupied. All that is needed is a little supervision while continuing to enjoy their own holiday. As part of this niche, Grand Mirage provides swimming pools of different sizes and depths to cater to their customers of different ages and swimming capacities. Then, they promote water sports in their swimming pool and as well at the beach. Then, there are the playing grounds with an assortment of slides and various games for the kids to stay occupied.
For the adults, the specialties are in-house spa treatment facility, an aqua medic pool, a coconut bar by the pool, a variety of cuisines at their different restaurants including a seafood restaurant offering the day’s fresh catch on the beach, entertainment, themed night buffet dinner on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, great service and many things that is signature of any five star hotel.
In spite of all the above facilities, they offer their own private beach, sun bathing chairs and a lot of water sport options that include snorkeling, scuba diving, jet ski, catamaran ride and many more. And all of this for a very competitive price, which is what I think is a great value for money package as I figured it out for myself when I stayed with them recently a short while back.
Their accommodation, value for money, food, service levels and amenities and plus the fact that they are family-friendly makes it a hot favorite in my mind for families of all types who are looking to spend their holiday in Bali. The place is also good for newly wed couples on a tighter budget and also for backpackers who wish to splurge once in a while.
P.S. This property is pretty popular with vacationers from India.
