Scheduling a Christmas trip in Bali is difficult at the last minute. But based on one TripAdvisor Review and pleasant communication with the booking staff we chose this resort over other villa type accomodations. Upon arrival we were greeted with Hawaiian style hospitality and were amazed at the space our Balinese Bale afforded us, two adults and two children.
The rooms were exceptionally clean, finished well, the layout superb and the staff always warm and friendly. I had planned lots of activities for my family, having not been to Bali in 7 years but all agreed just relaxing in our villa 'compound' was more than pleasant enough. The onsite restaurant served excellent food at very reasonable prices, however, the wait was rather long and we often thought to order several hours ahead but never actually did.
The sense of openess, yet privacy is not clearly evident in online photos, but I've included a few candid shots here to show our villa.
The street it is situated on has several convenience stores and some limited shopping, but after a week, many of the local vendors came to know us. At night, on Fridays and Saturdays the booming rendition of Beatles music from across the way at a few pubs did make for a not so quiet evening relaxing in the bale.
A good tip we discovered: Walk across the street and down the alley to the beach. Pay 20,000 Rupiah at Puri Santrian and have all access to their private, beach, water sports, pools and a towel all day! The spa is to die for!
The staff at Puri Santrian as well as Natah Bale always willingly watched the kids for a few hours at a very modest rate.
We'd definately return.
