Best For teen travel

Let’s be honest; holidays with teenagers need a little extra oomph. Hotels and resorts like these are jam-packed with boredom-busting activities that will have your teen raving to their mates about “the best holiday ever.”

the Low Down

The Santai Umalas is an exclusive retreat, nestled in a quiet neighbourhood close to picturesque rice fields and local temples but also just a short 15-minute drive from the shops, restaurants and buzzing nightlife of Seminyak. The Santai Umalas is an exclusive retreat with just 11 private and luxurious villas, all with pools. It offers something very different from the big hotels and resorts, expect a truly individual Balinese experience unlike anything else. They really do everything to make guests feel like this is their very own ‘home’ in Bali. The small number of pool villas means you experience highly personalised service from the staff who will pamper you from the moment you check in. You can be as private or as public as you like. If you want to hide away in your villa for the whole stay, they can bring everything to you, including delicious meals and blissful spa treatments.

  • It’s possible to forget the outside world entirely with meals and treatments available in the privacy of your own villa, massive private pools and open-air living areas.
  • Batu Belig Beach: If you’re looking for an alternative beach to visit, Batu Belig Beach is an excellent choice. With fewer crowds, the Batu Belig Beach feels more serene than its neighboring beach of Petitenget. The waters are excellent if you want to go for a swim, or just get your feet wet. Surfing is also another option, though conditions will vary depending on the tide.
  • Bali Beach Clubs: Beach clubs are a synonymous aspect of Bali, and Umalas has a few notable names for you to jump in and visit. Located right on the edge of Batu Belig Beach, is Tropicola Beach Club. It’s vibrant yellow tents, and contrasting blue daybeds and tropical pool are hard to miss when you arrive at Batu Belig. Sip your favorite drinks and soak in the sun with your group as you wait for the sun to set. If you prefer a quieter scene, another excellent option is Mozaic Beach Club, which is just a few minutes’ walk away from Tropicola. This is perfect for romantic dinners with your partner as you gaze at the sunset on the horizon.
  • Accommodation:
    Choose between the two types of villa. The Santai has 5 luxurious 350sqm Two-Bedroom Villas each with a tempting 5x10m pool with sundeck and daybed, elegant bedrooms, living room, dining area, and fully equipped kitchen, 24-hour butler service and a home theatre system including i-pod docks. Want more space? Choose one of the 6 huge and sumptuous 600sqm Three-Bedroom Villas with tempting 4x16m pool with sundeck and daybed, elegant bedrooms, living room, dining area, and fully equipped kitchen, 24-hour butler service and a home theatre system including i-pod docks.
  • Location:
    Sandwiched between popular Seminyak and hip and happening Canggu, Umalas has been long favoured by Bali travellers ‘in the know’. The laidback area is still streaked by green rice fields and offers a relaxing change of pace from busy Seminyak and is mostly filled with spectacular villas. As it gets slowly more well known, locals are opening restaurants and cafes and more things to do in this relaxed neighbourhood.
  • Getting there:
    The Santai is 30 minutes away from Ngurah Rai International Airport. If you would like an airport pickup, the resort can provide it on a complimentary basis, just contact the reservation staff prior to arrival.
  • What to pack:
    Summer clothes, hats, sunglasses, beach bags, swimsuits / beach cover-ups, sandals, evening dress and sundresses.
  • Restaurants:
    Open throughout the day, the Dining at The Santai Umalas centres on Gong restaurant which serves mouthwatering local and global dishes with a daily choice of specials, all using locally sourced ingredients. There is also a welcoming balcony bar for aperitifs and nightcaps.
  • Spa:
    The peaceful ambiance within the resort walls will help you relax and focus in choosing your preferred treatment among the comprehensive selection available in the privacy of your villa. Guests can also take part in massage class or talk further with their therapists about each different type of massage, oil and techniques.
