I want to write a different type of review for The Bale, as there have been different reviews of late. When I rate accommodation it depends on how it rates with my experiences both in other countries with differing service training and the actual level and price of the property. The Bale is less expensive than Alila Villas Uluwatu (stay this year)but is in that genre of building and service but is about the same price as a large and opulent suite at the nearby Intercontinental Hotel or a smaller suite at the IC Sydney. So, in light of recent stays at these properties....
The architectural aspects of common areas are very pleasing. Super neat and clean. The food and bev staff are similar to all such staff on Bali in high level properties - they try hard, come forward, but do not take ownership of the whole experience (for example, afternoon turndown staff wont clear the room service leftovers - this happened in 3 properties). You also need to be a bit pro-active in Asia sometimes - if it isnt right - ask - they will work hard to rectify. The Bale did this regarding those mozzies with a good outcome. They were fine in my opnion.
The actual Villa is indeed very nice in aesthetic. The pool and outdoor area better than Alila. I also must say the beach nearby is actually still very much worth visiting, in spite of the large new hotel being built. There is plenty of beautiful sand and water up toward the St Regis one can enjoy.
I did not have any evening meals at the property but the setting is lovely. I do agree the air-con units may need a bit of boosting up. But the Villa Pools were wonderfully cool and the property is elevated and catches a breeze. I think if you like privacy and are keen on calm and soothing - The Bale suits the bill.
