My husband and I stayed here(Nirwana Apartment)upper level for our Wedding Anniversary. From the moment we arrived and met Grant we were impressed. Lovely gentleman who even offered us late checkout.Upon entering the apartment we were greeted with lovely Balinese music,incense and candles. Champagne,strawberries and a cheese platter were provided including breakfast for the next morning . Intricate detailing in... More

Villa is within a new estate and fenced off from other surrounding houses. Very safe area and villa is nice and parking is great. however all house utensils had to be re-washed and the floor didn't look like it had been cleaned besides the cleanliness not bad for the price we paid. Also wouldn't be good place to stay in... More

Great venue for a couple. Such a lovely fit out - the Balinese theme really is tastefully done. It's one of the best places in NSW we've stayed in. Essentially it's the last house in the street so overlooking a beautiful park and only moments from the beach. When we were there it was a rainy weekend but it was... More

My husband and I stayed on the top floor for 4 days at the end of summer. It was lovely. Being across from all the gum trees, being able to sit on the balcony and read and drink. Bliss. The apartment had all the modern amenities you would expect plus a lovely big spa bath and a great DVD collection.... More

Our initial reaction arriving here (perhaps a bit unfair considering we'd come from the amazing Berenbell in Hunter Valley) was disappointment as it was right on the road with no view of the sea (there's a eucalyptus grove in between). To be fair I don't think they claim a sea view on the website but in any event it didn't... More

Our ratings say it all, nearly! Our hosts (Sharne and Grant) at Bali at the Bay just couldn't do enough for us to make our stay carefree and luxuriantly enjoyable. Our first whole day there was our 1st wedding anniversary; my wife knew NOTHING in advance of where we were staying, but her utter delight upon entering the upper floor... More

Six of us gals had a great time! There has obviously been a lot of attention paid to detail. The spa tub was divine with big fluffy towels to dry off with after. We all loved the beautiful white robes to wear around in the morning. There was comfy furniture throughout. The accommodation is a five minute walk through beautiful... More

Had a truly excellent and relaxing stay at the Bali at the Bay - the perfect escape from the stresses of everyday life. You're left to your own devices to relax, indulge, have fun…. The accommodation is comprised of two self-contained self-catering apartments. Both have car-parking, there are laundry facilities (with washing powder supplied). The upstairs apartment has two large... More

I am sitting here surrounded by utter luxury. There are literally tens of thousands of dollars worth of additions that this place offers over and above any place I've stayed. The carved veranda posts, the authentic statues, the freshly oiled teak fittings, furniture, the curved timber window heads, the massive bamboo lounge, the over-abundance of cushions and on the verandah...

I can't believe anyone would give this place a bad review. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially through the complications that happened during the time that we were booking. When we arrived, we received a guided tour through the stunning lower apartment and several suggestions for local activities. The room(s) is/are to die for. Between the private location... More
