Lovely boutique hotel. Rooms were comfortable. Staff very accommodating. Food was excellent. A nice alternative to the big box hotels nearby. Does require an 8 min walk to get to the beach, although hotel will furnish a car to drive you there. Was very lovely and quiet. Only downside is that the hotel could use some refurbishment.

Waoow ! We were expecting something great, and we were surely not disappointed ;))) We went to Bali for two weeks in March, and decided to stay for 10 days at the Bale. We choose the Deluxe Villa with Half board/1h daily massage option. The villas was fantastic. Huge, Spacious, confortable bed, Bathroom opening directly into the outdoor pool... big... More

Have been staying here for years and it never fails to impress. It is a true chill out zone where the villas are the centerpiece of relaxation. I could (and do) spend all day laying on the outdoor day bed reading book after book overlooking private pool big enough to do laps in. The interiors of the room are contemporary... More

We have just returned from two nights at the Bale, and it was an absolutely spoil. The staff all work together as such a good team, to ensure they understand - and meet - all of your requests. In essence nothing is too much trouble. Food at both restaurants was exceptional, and despite being booked out, it feels like you... More

As a secluded retreat to get away from it all, the Bale is a great place. Impeccable service, tranquil and discreet, once you arrive you know you are getting good service. From online booking to emails, the staff are in touch with you and make an effort to know your requirements air pickup arrangements etc before you step into the... More

For those of you who have read my reviews, you know I tell it like it is and explain the good and bad features as we saw or experienced them. From the moment you enter the Bale, you know you have arrived at a very special place. The Balinese bungalow set in a tranquil and secluded position was just the... More

Four of us, including two adult children stayed for five nights in one of the two villa compounds. I wasn't sure I'd like having a private pool, but it turned out to be perfect. The staff are all incredibly nice and the available complimentary transportation makes the "off beach" location work just fine. The included breakfasts are great and unlimited.... More

My partner and I celebrated our anniversary at The Bale. From the outset, our experience was blissful. Our flight was delayed by 1.5 hours, but our lovely driver was patiently waiting and welcomed us enthusiastically as we cleared customs. When we went to the car, we were delighted to find chilled water and hand towels, a beautiful fruit platter, and... More

Really enjoyed our stay at The Bale. What a great staff, super friendly and very helpful, the service was always great!! The villa is super clean and very roomy. A few mosquitos, but nothing that one shouldn't expect in the tropical climate of Bali and nothing that disturbed our stay. Our AC was fine during the entire stay, but we... More

Visited as a couple. This was my fourth trip to Bali and fourth resort. The Bale is located in Nusa Dua, which, frankly speaking if you ask me has the better beaches in town. Location-wise it is about 45 minutes away from the airport (with light traffic under consideration). They offer complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport which... More
