My fiance and I stayed at Bala's for 3 days and 2 nights. The grounds are BEAUTIFUL - we took our engagement photos here! Service is good, and the property is very quiet and serene - it's off the main road and situated on top of a private road. Accomodation is very comfortable and clean / as pictured. Wifi is intermittent though.
It took us about 2.5 hours to get to Bala's from Ipoh airport by Taxi, but that was on a Sunday, when the traffic down and up the mountain was really bad. Our journey back took around 1.5-2 hours. The location is also very convenient -- 5 minute drive to the nearby town which has lots of good eateries, a 20 min drive to Barat's tea plantation, and about 35-40 minutes to the Mossy Forest.
Bala himself came round to welcome us when we checked-in. He's a great guy! We were also served lunch in the garden. It was heavenly! Their Indian food is great =)
DEFINITELY staying here again if we visit Cameron again in the future!
