Purveyors of good taste and design, Mr & Mrs Smith, select six of the world’s most chic and child-friendly hotels

Karma Kandara, Bali
Like the nest of a spectacularly exotic sea eagle, Karma Kandara’s 46 villas teeter excitingly on the cliff edges of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, with private pools jutting out into the horizon. This may not be especially relaxing if you have a tiny tearaway toddler, but you can leave unattended over-twos in the Karma Kids Club, where they’ll be entertained with Balinese puppetry, mask-making and beach larks. They’ll also love the funicular ride down to Karma’s private Greek-style Nammos Beach Club, where they can race along the crescent of white sand or snorkel in the tranquil lagoon. Villa kitchens are Smeg-fitted, restaurants are gourmet and the free-form swimming pools inviting. For high-octane addicts, helicopters, speedboats and jeeps can ferry you to exhilarating surf spots or, for a spiritual high, pay a visit Pura Luhur, one of Bali’s most sacred temples.
Jalan Villa Kandara Banjar Wijaya Kusuma Ungasan, Bali, 80362 Indonesia. Tel: 006 2361 848 2200. Prices from £693 per night for a Luxury Pool Villa. Cots are free; extra beds cost £48 per night.
