Stayed here with a friend in October. The rooms are huge, and the pool is large for a villa. Great to have complete privacy and the opportunity to take a dip without leaving your own space. The enormous bathtub and outdoor shower are a highlight. Bed was comfy. We enjoyed the large garden courtyard and outdoor space. Would love to see a ceiling fan installed for the day bed. The internet connection was okay but not ideal if you want to use it as a base for work. Better for a chance to disconnect and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Lovely staff.

Beautiful room with our own pool. There was an outdoor daybed, shower, lounges. We never even used the indoor shower. The staff are amazing. Always wanting to please you, no matter what. My hubby had an accident the day before we arrived so it was difficult when we arrived. They added padding to the bed, got him cushions. Always being thoughtful. One of the restaurants was being renovated which was disappointing as we didn’t know but the chef did his upmost to make meals upon request. Honestly we wouldn’t bother with the beaches as our own space was so beautiful. The staff are exceptional thank you to all your efforts.. even when we were grumpy on arrival! We wish you all the best for the future. 🙏

The Bale was absolutely incredible. My wife and I stayed there on our honeymoon and had an amazing time. The Villa was beautiful and clean, as well as being very well resourced. The hotel staff were amazing and very accommodating. I would also highly recommend doing the cooking class and make sure you include the market tour. Our chef instructor Beny was the best and made sure we had the best time. Loved The Bale and will definitely be back.

Just back from a glorious 7 night stay at The Balè. Truly fantastic stay! The private villa was a haven. Quiet, beautiful with a pool large enough to swim. Loved the breakfast - perfect start to the day. A la carte with a great selection. The pancakes and eggs Benedict were my favourite. The Balè team are amazing - friendly, attentive and very proactive. Great location - 5 mins walk to the beach. 100% recommend and look forward to returning.

Loved the Villa with private pool. Loved the a la carte Breakfast either in your villa or overlooking the main pool. None of this buffet nonsense. A great selection western dishes, I preferred the local selection some days. Good coffee, great poached eggs. Dinner and lunch are also wonderful.

Reviewing our stay at The Balé in July of 2019. We spent the last four nights of our honeymoon at The Balé. We were welcomed by the general manager and got a welcome drink and a complimentary 15 minute massage. It was the perfect start to a great stay. Amazing property, beautiful and spacious villa, great service, wonderful food and drinks. Complimentary shuttle service to and from the beach, as well as all over Nusa Dua area, was very nice. The Tapa restaurant belonging to the hotel cooked up some mouthwatering tapas and the cocktails were out of this world. We would definitely come back. Thank you for your hospitality! With love, Mr. & Mrs.Myrland

Dear Stikkam .... or probably better, M/M Myrland, thank you soo much for taking time to share with readers details of such special trip... spending the last few nights with us at The Bale. The resort is indeed perfect for honeymooners and / or those wanting to unwind and relax in style. With such limited number of villas, we aim to pamper everyone individually. Glad to hear that you also enjoyed Tapa, which we are currently working on a new concept post pandemic. exciting times ahead. thanks again and look forward to welcoming you back!!!

I do not wish to write a bad review, but I think people who may stay should be warned. We booked The Bale at a discounted rate in February 2022 to stay in June 2022. They took a non-refundable full payment. Less than two week prior to our arrival they have cancelled our booking. Very poor service. Do not trust this hotel to hold your booking. They may give it to someone else at short notice.

Responded 21 Jul 2022
Dear Familyholiday71, Thank you for sharing the details of your unfortunate experience with The Bale. It was indeed surprising that your booking was indeed cancelled but actually not by the resort. We actually received the cancellation from the platform with whom you made your booking at the resort back on February 2022. Such booking was made using a heavily discounted rate applied exclusively to domestic market (Indonesian Nationals and expatriates holding working permits or permanent residency in the country) given the travel restrictions at that time. At that time we were very much relying on such market as you know. Consequently the terms and conditions of such rate were subject to clients complying with those requirements. It was unfortunate that when borders re opened and we started welcoming guests, in several cases guests would arrive from abroad holding similar reservations only applicable to domestic market so that the respective agents were asked to settle the difference since it was clearly misleading information to clients by extending rates (to overseas clients) that were restricted. In some cases, agents cancelled the bookings and referred to the resort as the source of such cancellation, which is far from true. Who would not want business after more than 2 years loosing money ? Sadly the handling of this situation was indeed troublesome and unfair to guests, that , like yourselves, were only expecting a blissful return to Bali after such long pandemic and to us, that we were looking forward to provide only the best to our clients... instead we had to witness how bookings were cancelled not giving us a chance to connect with clients directly. I am sorry for such long explanation but I felt compelled to reply personally considering your unfortunate experience which I hope, you appreciate now, it was not known to the resort. On a related note, I noted that you made such booking on non refundable basis for which I would like to ask whether you ever received any funds back since I believe no charges were made from our side. We would be delighted to make it up to you for such unfortunate experience or at least meet personally next time you are in Bali.. Yours Sincerely, Jose Luis Calle Managing Director Lifestyle Retreats

We stayed at The Bale for 3 nights. We had a little hiccup where Agoda removed our booking at the very last minute whilst we were travelling. The Bale nevertheless sent their driver to pick us up from the airport in the evening, rather than being caught by surprise with nothing arranged. Obviously we were displeased by the fact that Agoda was selling us a rate (without warning or checking) that wasn’t applicable to us and then just removed the booking. All was resolved thanks to the GM, Jose, the next morning so that we could go back into vacation mode. The property is about 20 years old, but the design could also fit any property just recently built. The Villa (deluxe) was very spacious and the bed super comfy. We loved the privacy of the walled garden with pool, loungers and a bale, so that even during rainy weather you’d be safe and dry outside. The Villa itself is quite large and the AC is doing a very good job. It’s nice that there also a large two-level communal pool next to the restaurant to get a change of scenery, or have your lunch there. The breakfast is a la carte, but very extensive and tasty. We also enjoyed our Indonesian dinner at the same restaurant. The beach is a 5-minute walk. Their own private section isn’t in operation at the moment, but there’s plenty of loungers with food and beverage service there to use. When we had dinner reservations or plans outside, they were ways keen to drop us off anywhere in the Nusa Dua area and also dropped us off at our next destination in Jimbaran. Would be go back to The Bale? Absolutely, without hesitation….we would just ensure to book directly with them next time.

Dear MOZBOB, thank you soo much for taking time to share your experience with readers. We were surprised when we received the cancellation yet we decided to proceed as normal so we would welcome you at the resort and updated you on the situation. Similarly to someone that have recently posted, the rate extended was not meant for international travelers which caused unfortunate circumstances (and in some cases, negative perception). Fortunately we were able to remediate the situation meeting you personally and making things work so that you could enjoy what The Bale is all about. Thanks for your kind words regarding the resort itself. Despite being 20 years we still do the utmost to keep the property in good shape. Bale as i shared with you is very closed to my heart since I was here from the early days and the family, as we refer to the team, has been working very hard all these years to make guests dreams, reality while with us. thanks again and look forward to welcoming you back here or at any other property within the group. warm regards! Jose Luis Calle MD Lifestyle Retreats
