Hi hellokitty26.

Bali is predominantly beach-oriented and there are a lot of hotels that are all-inclusive for you and your toddler. Most of these hotels are in the Nusa Dua area, and some of them have their own private beaches. Going from point A to B in Bali (as it is in many other SEA countries) can be a hassle, especially with a toddler. Your best bet is to rent a car and not use public transport. There's a few waterboom (pools) you can go too as well for activity. Although I personally haven't gone, there is a marine park and a bird park in Bali you can also go to with your toddler.

With Yogya, the atmosphere is more of a traditional/cultural destinations. Same like Bali though, I also recommend you to rent a car to go places with your toddler (if I am not mistaken, the price is around 400thousand rupiahs per day with a driver). There are more museums and palaces you can go to. The zoo is nice to go to, beaches are also nice although a little father away than it is in Bali from the city center.

Just a side note, Indonesia isn't exactly a stroller-friendly place so it's advisable to have carriers if you plan to take your toddler around.

Hello Cnoezar,

thank you! thanks for the advice, appreciate it.

I think Bali might be a better option for me, am looking for a place to relax and wind down.
My tod would love the water activity areas.
Noted on the baby carrier, am surely bringing it along! :)

Hope you have some nice travel adventures soon ;)
