I am a single American who has been to Bali. You can see my photos in the picture section of the Bali site here. I have also been to other Asian clubs like Phuket and Cherating. Americans are uncommon at Phuket and Cherating, but when I was at Bali (probably the most beautiful of the clubs) there were about 20 Americans. They have a kid's club there, but the kid's clubs in the Asian clubs are different. They are a lot more unobtrusive. They are there, but you don't notice them as much.
This is certainly not a Turks atmosphere, but it is not a strictly family atmosphere either. You find singles and families here, but they do their own thing. Bali is a tremendous island to explore on your own or on an excursion. BTW, English is the common language at the club. Also, the food in the Asian clubs is stunning. Of course, there are plenty of activities right outside the club as well, and within walking distance.
I had a great time there, but getting there from the US is more than a one day flying trip. You will probably have to layover in Singapore. I highly recommend the Ambassador Transit Hotel right in Changi Airport, especially if you arrive late at night and have to leave in the morning.
