Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia
Grand Design, Close to beautiful white beach, Privacy
The Balé is the flagship resort by Lifestyle Retreats and for good reason. Located in Nusa Dua, close to one of Bali’s most beautiful beaches, it’s a Resort with huge grounds, expansive private villas, and a resort pool that reminds of ancient roman times. During the day and at night the design of this place is stunning, it’s very symmetrical and one can see a lot of thought went into it’s architecture.
The mini villa we occupied was expansive and had everything one could want in a relaxed and reviving holiday experience. There was an awesome daybed in the garden, which was perfect to do some light reading throughout the day. Each villa also comes with it’s own private pool and a massive bathroom with french doors that open up to the pool. During our stay the resort was kind enough to install some mosquito nets over our bed just for us, which showed a level of service that really impressed us.
The Balé features a pool side restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For breakfast they offer a full a la carte menu, with Balinese as well as international options. For lunch and dinner the restaurant has a selection of fine seafood that won’t disappoint. The in room dining is another great way to enjoy the resorts menu.
We couldn’t fault the resort on anything. The staff were absolutely lovely and very attentive. We had a full time butler that saw to every wish we posed (Mosquito net to Airport transport). I also needed to extend my visa at one stage and a lovely driver took me to the embassy, all the while entertaining me with a very enlightening conversation about his family and the islands history. It was a magical stay at the Bale and we would return in a heartbeat.
The internet at the resort sufficed for Email and general Browsing, though if you’re looking to watch youtube etc, it’s recommended to get one of the local data sim packages for your phone, which are fast and very affordable (8GB for AU$10 if i remember correctly)
