The Bale

TripAdvisor Review
Indonesia, South East Asia
Nusa Dua

This elegant boutique resort is located on the hillside of Bali's fashionable Nusa Dua area and offers its guests 29 charming pavilions. The complex overlooks the Indian Ocean and is a 10-minute walk from the secluded Geger beach, where guests can find unspoiled white sand and wonderful opportunities to sunbath and swim. Those guest who prefer a little more privacy can grab a book or a newspaper from the library located near the hotel lobby and lazy around the private swimming pool, with which each of the villas is equipped. For a total relaxation they can request a full-body or a special massage that will surely revitalize their bodies and increase their well-being.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Beautiful boutique property in Nusa Dua

Review by MOZBOB North Pole, Alaska

We stayed at The Bale for 3 nights. We had a little hiccup where Agoda removed our booking at the very last minute whilst we were travelling. The Bale nevertheless sent their driver to pick us up from the airport in the evening, rather than being caught by surprise with nothing arranged...

Obviously we were displeased by the fact that Agoda was selling us a rate (without warning or checking) that wasn’t applicable to us and then just removed the booking. All was resolved thanks to the GM, Jose, the next morning so that we could go back into vacation mode.

The property is about 20 years old, but the design could also fit any property just recently built. The Villa (deluxe) was very spacious and the bed super comfy. We loved the privacy of the walled garden with pool, loungers and a bale, so that even during rainy weather you’d be safe and dry outside. The Villa itself is quite large and the AC is doing a very good job. It’s nice that there also a large two-level communal pool next to the restaurant to get a change of scenery, or have your lunch there. The breakfast is a la carte, but very extensive and tasty. We also enjoyed our Indonesian dinner at the same restaurant. The beach is a 5-minute walk. Their own private section isn’t in operation at the moment, but there’s plenty of loungers with food and beverage service there to use. When we had dinner reservations or plans outside, they were ways keen to drop us off anywhere in the Nusa Dua area and also dropped us off at our next destination in Jimbaran. Would be go back to The Bale? Absolutely, without hesitation….we would just ensure to book directly with them next time.

We had a very nice 2 nights here at The Bale. The staff were polite and helpful, the food was good and the villa it self was spacious and comfortable. The perfect spot to wind down and relax with complete privacy!

Review by X5096HPjohns Auckland, New Zealand

We visited in September 2019

Prior to booking with Luxury Escapes we requested via Lux escape to accommodate us in Sep to coincide with another booking in Bali.

The Bale were happy to do so (Original condition was to complete our stay til 30th June 2019).

Secondly our in laws were also staying close by. The Bale staff were happy to allow them visit us regularly to our villa.

The room was great

Pool was superb, the day bed was so cosy and the food, cooked to order was sublime...

We had a wonderful stay and wish to come back soon as soon as this pandemic is behind us.

Thank you guys and wish you all the best.

Need to improve the property but good service

Review by Jeanontrip Jakarta, Indonesia

Now i understand why this villa is only for honeymooners. I came with elder and kids because they open for family due to the pandemic situation. They just open a few days ago so there are lots of things to improve on the property...

I was lost because no security on the parking lot and the sign of the lobby is not clear. Need to walk the stairs to get into the villa. A bit difficult when its raining. But once you get into the villa the service is fast apart from the tv and wifi need to be fixed. All requests handled smoothly. They are also very accomodating for the guests needs. For example they provide my mom the buggy because she cannot walk the stairs. Breakfast is delicious. Thanks to Jose, the manager and all the staffs.

Privacy and luxury in one package

This is my third stay at lifestyle retreats property. Stayed at the menjangan and phnom penh. Looking around for a place to stay in nusa dua and lifestyle retreats reminds me of their excellent service, that's why i decided to come here.

  • Its unbelievably huge...

Everywhere you go, it feels spacious. It takes a while to get to your villa which is nice short walk. I can properly swim going back and forth without a problem here.

  • The villa design is just top notch and it feels like we're entering the house that won design competition. You can feel luxury and simplicity here. Really like direct access from the pool to the bathroom.
  • Staff gives excellent service for you. They even remember who you are. Pretty difficult when everyone is wearing a mask these days. And even with limited resource in pandemic, they still do their best.
  • Food is just amazing, somehow for breakfast my nasi goreng taste pretty much like the one on the street. Ate several food at the tapas restaurant and all tasted good. Especially the scallop.
  • The bale bengong is just amazing. Comes with a fan and comfy bed to help you stay there doing nothing for the whole day.
  • The equipment in the building are just top notch. Gotta give credit for yamaha amplifier and powerful Honeywell aircon.
  • bathroom is just excellent. 6 soaps to choose from, bath amenities is just so good. The best part of this i can watch tv from the bathtub
  • There is a private space for you to lay down on the beach. No worries for the beach lovers.
  • The maintenance they did to keep this building is just amazing. It's not a new building, but this is in a better shape compared to another newer villa and resorts.
  • It's nice to have a short talk with Jose luis calle (founder of the lifestyle retreats) about the feedback and tourism in bali these days.

There is some negative aspects but i really don't care about it either.

  • Parking space is a bit limited. But who cares? Next time i will use their shuttle. Their shuttle is just amazing and will help you move around.
  • I wish the TV could have HD channel. but again i never watch the tv here, because i spend my day at bale bengong and looking into the clear sky of bali.

If you're looking for privacy, serenity, luxury and top notch service, look no further. I planned to visit another property from lifestyle retreats.
