We chose the Baleka after reading the positive TA reviews. We were not disappointed. We stayed 7 nights but would have been happy to stay a month. We were in room 368, this room was large and comfortable, the bathroom was as good as anything we have seen in 5 star hotels.
The included breakfast was a relatively simple, but nice affair. At night the restaurant served all the regular favourites for a reasonable price.
The staff are what makes the Baleka. Within a day or so they would remember your name, welcoming you each time. Scoobie went to great lengths to remember our names individually, a really nice touch.
We felt that the location was perfect, centrally located between Kuta and Seminak. After a couple of taxi rides we discovered that the metred fare is only $2.50 AUD. Some asked up to $10.00.
We later met a local driver with his car waiting at the front of the resort. We used him for all our transport needs ie: drop @Waterbom then phoned him 10 hrs later to be picked up, brilliant.
Baleka is what's known as a Balinese style resort because it has gardens and water features within the grounds. Newer hotels tend to be concrete multilevel boxes that lack character.
