We went there on honey-moon on 2011 and it is simply breath-taking. The villas with private pools just on the other side of the wooden-and-glass doors are brilliant (except the fact that the doors allow small reptiles to come inside) and the breakfast... uau!, simply the best muesli ever, served (along with as many other stuff that you ask for)...

We have just returned from a week at The Bale and what a wonderfully relaxing week it was. The staff were definitely the highlight - friendly, always smiling and helpful no matter the request. Chef Nadi's tour of the local markets and the cooking class were definitely a highlight. We had a Zen Ritual booked, but after a dose of... More

We loved having our own pool and the room was spacious and beyond comfortable. We had a room further from the road and didn't find the noise as intrusive (we were there a Friday night to Sunday). As absolutely beautiful as it was, it is starting to show it's wear a little bit. That didn't affect our stay though -... More

We stayed here in May 2014 for our honeymoon. It was the best holiday we have been on, that we've actually wanted to write a review. The manager (Luke) was extremely welcoming even though we had no booking due to a mix up by our agent. He sorted our issue out without us having to worry about it. All of... More

What a beautiful resort with friendly staff and a manger that will not only introduce himself but converse with you for as long as you like. All Bale staff is tentative but there are a few that really are exceptional. Our deluxe standard room was very spacious and well designed. The pool and daybed is simply lovely but the pool... More

We were meant to stay at The Balé for 5 nights on our honeymoon but we only managed 4. Our experience at this hotel was perhaps not as wonderful as some of the many positive reviews that you see here on Tripadvisor, which also helped us greatly in the decision making process. When we arrived at The Balé we were... More

While we only had one night at the Bale it was a great experience. Walking though the big wooden doors to our Delxue Pool Villa through the courtyard with lovely water features, a large daybed, grassed area and a huge pool I was blown away with the luxury. And this was before we opened the door to our beautiful room.... More

I will preface this by saying I stayed in Hanging Gardens and COMO Shambalah Estate in Ubud and the Bale was my absolute favorite. Intimate staff who anticipate your every need.
