How to Stay Safe at Bali Family Resorts with Unvaccinated Kids

How to Stay Safe at Bali Family Resorts with Unvaccinated Kids

The vaccination program has been rolling on since the beginning of 2021 and now, many people are in the lookout for travelling again. However, not everyone can receive the vaccination—and children especially toddlers and young ones are among the ones who cannot be vaccinated yet. That doesn’t mean that families have to be forever trapped at their homes. You can still travel and book a stress-relieving getaway at the tropical family resorts in Bali if you pay extra attention to the safety rules. So, if you are travelling to the resort with young unvaccinated children, make sure to follow the guide below.

Pack the New Normal Essentials to the Bali Family Resort

If you have travelled with your kids before, you know the basic things to pack. Swimwear, extra clothes, toys, diapers, and emergency snacks come without questions. However, don’t forget the new essentials you need to pack following the pandemic outbreaks. Disposable gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, disinfection wipes (sanitizing hand wipes are also a viable alternative), and hand sanitizer are the new essentials for safe travel during a pandemic.

Research What the Resort is Doing During the Pandemic

Research What the Resort is Doing During the Pandemic

Head to the resort’s website/ social media to know what steps of protocols they do during the pandemic. Hotel websites generally include information about what they’re doing to keep their guests and employees safe. Find out what they do in particular. Check to see if contactless check-in is an option. See whether they provide masks for guests and staffs. Make sure they regularly disinfect the public spaces. If necessary, check whether they create physical separation following COVID-19 policies. Children have tendency to run everywhere and touch everything they see. You don’t want your kids to touch spaces that have high risk of virus contamination.

Always Wear Masks in the Public Spaces of the Bali Family Resorts

The importance of wearing a mask in public cannot be overstated. When going out, major health organizations have stated that wearing a face mask is required. The same health and safety requirements are being implemented in many hotels. When you’re in the hotel lobby or in a public place, you must wear your face masks. If your kids are old enough to do so, make sure they also wear their mask. It is one of the most crucial hotel safety recommendations that you should follow. Make sure you and the kids wear your mask till you reach your seat, not just at the hotel but also when you go out for outdoor eating scenes with your friends and family.

Wash or Sanitise Hands Frequently

We have said it before, and we will say it again. Kids love to touch everything they see. It’s part of their sensorics development. To minimise the risk, make sure to wash your and the kids’ hands frequently during your stay at the resort. The CDC and the WHO, two important global health organizations, established the norm of sanitizing your hands every 15-20 minutes. The resort usually provides hand sanitisers to protect everyone in the property. You can also find it in your room. However, just to be safe, you should bring hand sanitizer with you.

Be Mindful about Social Distance in Resorts Pool and Lobby

During your travel or hotel stays, social distancing is one of your top priorities. Because Bali family resorts attract individuals from all over the world, the risks are significantly increased. However, as long as you intentionally choose to follow safety practices such as hand sanitization, social distancing, and avoiding spending too much time in public settings, you’ll be fine. Swimming pools are quite tricky. We recommend you to and the kids to avoid swimming pools in hotels for your own safety. However, sometimes kids insist to play in the water. You should asses whether swimming in the resort is safe or not for your kids. If not many guests are staying, it’s probably safe. Lobbies that are overcrowded are also a no-no and must be avoided at all costs. Being extra cautious in a hotel during a pandemic is the best way to be safe.

How To Fly Comfortably Even If You Get The Middle Seat

How To Fly Comfortably Even If You Get The Middle Seat

Sitting in the middle seat for a flight is considered the worst thing to happen. Many people got bad experience from having middle seat during a flight. Some of annoyances include having nosy seatmates peering over your shoulder left and right, crawling just to get to the bathroom, not being able to stretch out, being squeezed by bigger seatmates, not being able to rest head the entire flight, and many more.

The middle seat is always seen as a doom for many air travelers. However, sometimes you have no choice but accept your fate. You can survive and still enjoy the flight even with your unfortunate seat. Here are some tips you can follow to enjoy your flight as middle seat occupier:

But make sure to arrive early as to not disturb the others. 

Make yourself as comfortable as possible

How to enjoy your flight even in the middle seat

It is important to claim your territory so you will stay comfortable throughout the flight. Ask the passenger in front of you politely to refrain from reclining their seat back if possible. Also, claim the armrests on both sides because you have the priority to do so with the seat arrangement. 

Know the timing

If you need to get up from your seat for example to get to the bathroom, do it before your seatmate gets comfy. Because it will be harder to so when they are already in the middle of watching movies, reading books, or sleeping. Also, do it before the person in the window seat fall asleep. Hence, you won’t get trapped when the person in the aisle seat falls asleep and won’t be bothered when the person in the window seat needs to get up. 

Try to rest fully 

Get yourself comfortable to sleep and rest easier during the flight. You can use neck pillow, eye mask, and ear plugs. You may have to sleep while sitting straight up because you have nothing to rest your head on. You can even use the tray table to take an in-flight nap. However, do not place your face directly on the tray table no matter what.

Make yourself busy to let the time flies

Being in the middle seat can make you feel like time flying so slowly. Hence, busy yourself with activities you like such as watching movies, surfing the web, reading a book, etc. Those can help distract you from all the annoyance of being in the middle seat. Make the best of your flight experience and know it will pass.
