We knew about this place from a tweet RT by LiburanAnak and as the hotel we stayed in Seminyak was close to El Parque Bali, we visited this place before going to the airport. We read travelfish review on El Parque that the cafe opens at 8 am. So we thought we'll have two hours before our departure time to the airport.
When we arrived at El Parque, the little shops as the entrance to the cafe still closed and we read that it opens at 9 am. Our kiddos were really disappointed, as I have told them early in the morning that we were going to a playground. We went back to our hotel to have our final packing done, and thereafter went back to El Parque. We arrived at 9 am sharp and yes it was already open:)
We had to pay IDR 65,000 per child, expensive compared to our fave Kemang Playground in Jakarta, but hey it's Seminyak:p We paid the entrance fee and our kiddos went straightly to the pool. We were the only customer and this place was very peaceful, looks lovely with the domination of my fave purple color:p
It's quite expensive to order food and drink from the cafe. Kiddos get free juice in a child glass, you may choose melon or watermelon fresh juice. Rene ordered an ice coffee, and instead of sitting in the cafe we enjoyed ourselves sitting on those blue pillows chair around the pool area.
There weren't many choice for the playground, and our kiddos prefer to play in the pool. There was also a sands corner, but again our kiddos were not interested to play sands here.
Actually there weren't much to do for the kids here, but this place is so lovely that it inspires me somehow to make one in my parents' house in Bandung:)
