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.
A friend and I attended the Bale for a Cooking Class with Benni, it was a great experience and the food we cooked was absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend this experience if you love cooking or if you're just looking to do something a little different. We we given a brief look around the the resort after our lunch and the rooms and grounds of this resort are wonderful. Thank you Benni from Miss Kim & Mr Kevin. 10 out of 10

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
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.
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.…
