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 is too cold to swim in although we expected warm in July the pools were just freezing. The ocean was much warmer with a designated area for The Bale only and a person to help you set up and get food and water for you when you need. We were also impressed with how picturesque the beach was, clear blue water and white sand. Some minor details were missed such as one night they missed our turn down service, didn’t refill the tea bags etc but like I said, they are minor.
As mentioned by another reviewer there are many stairs but at the side is a path, still up hill but it reduces the amount of stairs.
This was almost perfect if only the traffic noise was not so incredibly intrusive. Day and night, even inside the villa with everything closed we still struggled with the traffic noise. We were given a villa just behind the kitchen so the combination of the kitchen phone ringing with orders and the constant traffic noise we found we just could not relax as much as we wanted too. Pancha was very responsive to our concerns with moving us to a villa furthest from the front but we had to wait two days before we could move as it was occupied. This was an improvement but still some noise but at least I could start sleeping again! It wasn’t until Saturday; the day we left, the traffic went completely quiet!! I was informed the Balinese do not work Saturday or Sunday resulting in less traffic. The concrete trucks and motorbikes without mufflers finally stopped and then it was perfect!!
Based on this we would return but we would ensure our time there would be just over the weekend plus one day either side.
