There's a reason why Bali is one of the most popular overseas travel destinations for Australians. Put simply, it's paradise. The friendly hospitable locals, incredible cuisine, rich history and culture and dramatic, breathtaking landscapes make it a destination that you'll never want to leave.
And there's nowhere better to immerse in all that Bali has to offer than The Mulia and Mulia Resort & Villas which you'll find nestled in the pristine coastline of Bali's Nusa Dua.
Luxury, culture, cuisine and first class hospitality ensure that all Mulia guests experience the very best of Bali, even the youngest members of the family.
This is not a one-size-fits-all accommodation. Spread over a sprawling 30 hectares of tropical paradise, there really is something for everyone in the three property types on offer. From regular families, to uber-celebrities, there is an accommodation style to ensure every guest has their needs met.
I recently had the pleasure of trying out all three accommodation types on offer, and I can assure you that each one is more spectacular than the next!
The Mulia itself is made up of 111 one and two bedroom ultra luxurious suites for those looking for the ultra-luxury experience.
The more family-friendly Mulia resort, has 526 sophisticated accommodations including lagoon pool rooms and suites.
And for those looking for ultra-privacy, one of the 108 Mulia Villas, featuring private pools and tropical gardens might be more enticing. Ranging from one and two bedrooms villas, all the way to the six bedrooms of the Mulia Mansion.
For families enjoying a stay here, there are so many ways to relax and enjoy the facilities together. From glorious pools, to delicious eats and friendly faces there's a reason families are booking to return after each visit.
And for parents looking for a little alone time to enjoy the facilities, the gorgeous staff at Mulia Kidz can help. Offering a fun and exciting playtime for children, Mulia Kidz is a premium childcare service that allows parents to fully immerse in relaxation, child-free.
Aside from the glorious accommodation, something that stood out to me on my stay was the hospitality on offer.
From the highly trained butler services, to the friendly faces throughout the resort and the super-helpful concierge staff, there is nothing that is too much trouble, which is particularly useful when you're a family travelling with children.
Clearly happy to spend their days in such a incredible place, the staff throughout The Mulia are simply nice to be around. It really is a family, and in no time at all guests know that they are now part of the Mulia family too.
