When it was 5K Hyatt points a night it was worth the risk   :)

Does anyone know of any other destinations with great villa rentals (with pool etc..) closer to the US (but not in) that would be worth visiting with young kids in June/July?

Was in Bali this past summer and was great...

Nicely done. I wonder if we were in Seminyak at the same time.

Anyone try and have kosher meals delivered to DPS? I'm thinking of reaching out to an outfit in Australia. I think Kleins delivers to MLE, so I don't imagine it'd be an issue to get food delivered to DPS.

@Fan of Dan -- how was USAT Liberty? I think I've slotted 2 full days for diving, and I think that'll be one day.

Anyone ever take the fast boat to Gili islands? Supposed to be other worldly.

As of now we're doing three nights in the Grand Executive Suite at the GH and three nights in a Conrad Ocean Suite at, well, the Conrad. I could have done a airbnb villa, I guess, but my wife prefers hotels.

Last, aside from spending some time in Ubud, and doing the monkey forest, and perhaps diving, anything else a must-do/see?

Kleins supposedly will do MLE and SEZ. They said they can't do DPS

Interesting. I wonder why not.

Anyone have any other ideas for delivery of food into DPS? I'm trying to avoid having to shlep food.

Ubud villas are highly recommended. I haven't seen any chain hotels there yet, and you'd be missing out on a lot of the natural charm if you stay in hotel.

They have some stunning looking bike rides north of Ubud, around volcanoes and in the countryside.

And we schlepped food.

Yeah, we plan on doing a bike ride or two in and around Ubud.

Trying to avoid having to do that,  but if we must,  we must.

Enjoy!
It's on my list for a 2nd visit, along w/ Vietnam perhaps.
Just depends if the AA deval holds off long enough and we can work it out w/ the kids schedule.

Northern Bali also has good reviews and seems to be much less traveled. Perhaps check that out as well.

What kind of question is that?

ETA: I.e. who would vote against that?
