We went to the Ritz Carlton in Bali last year and LOVED it. Didn’t have a LO then but saw lots of families there on vacation.

Phuket is pretty good as well. Some of the resorts even have a daycare/organized children activities, but I believe it’s more geared to kids? My sis dropped off her 6 year and 10 year boys while we were at the pool. They were never far away and could always come look for us if they wanted to.

For those that are observing yom kippur, have an easy and meaningful fast. For those with Jewish people on your teams, don’t wish them a “happy Yom Kippur” or ask them to “enjoy the time”- it’s a solemn holiday. It’s also not the responsibility of the Jewish person on the team to teach you about the holiday - you have Google. And it’s really terrible to guilt them for signing off early/taking PTO to observe.
