The Bale is a beautifully designed hotel with rooms that are secluded for excellent relaxation. We had a double pavilion, which to our surprise was two completely separated buildings and two private pools as well as a covered outside bed area by the pools! Everything about the layout of the hotel is well thought out so that everywhere you are, whether by the pool, in your own room, at the restaurant, etc., is a tranquil experience. Highlights of the room include very comfortable beds, a nice bath tub and an indoor and outdoor shower, a selection of 6 different kinds of soap, daily fresh fruit and cookies in the room, and complimentary sodas in the mini bar (it's the little details that make the difference). The staff are all very friendly and eager to help out.
The hotel has its own roped off area of beach that is a few minutes drive away (the hotel shuttle will take you there). It's not an especially nice area of beach and there are a lot of people that approach you to sell things, but it is fine.
A couple things to keep in mind: Nusa Dua is a bit removed from where most of the sites in Bali are so it takes a while to get anywhere. Also, the internet is too slow to really do anything with, so if that's important to you you'll need a backup plan. The area is quite buggy and the rooms have a space beneath the door that bugs can get in so we ended up with A LOT of mosquito bites. We heard that they are planning on doing a complete renovation of the hotel though so maybe this is something that will be fixed?
Overall, a fantastic stay at a beautiful hotel.
