The Balé is a rare gem in Bali. Close enough to Nusa Dua resort enclave, a mere 15 minutes from the airport, and yet in a corner of Bali offering total seclusion away from the hustle and bustle. Overlooking the sweeping ocean and within walking distance to the beach and to the adjacent Bali Golf and Country Club.
With just 29 blissful pavilions, on an intimate scale each with its own private pool and modern, stylish furnishings, The Balé offers the ideal romantic getaway. The feel is more private estate than a hotel, a minimalist temple of sweeping steps, bleached limestone and a central cascading waterfall.
Architect Anthony Liu applied his clean-cut palette on an impressive scale. From the moment you arrive at the resort, water elements are omnipresent, creating a relaxing and pleasant ambience while helpful personal butlers will meet your every whim. Personalizing your stay, from recommendations on dining and shopping, to the latest clubs or the funkiest cocktails at Fluid, the resort’s bar and lounge. The no-children policy allows you and your significant other to spend real quality “couple time”.
With its zen appeal, you can also indulge in the unique collection of The Spa’s wellness and holistic programs while dining on the freshest organic produce.
For fine dining, Brandon Huisman and his culinary team are on hand to create personalized meals at Faces restaurant. You decide what you want to eat, when and where. Located poolside and features an open kitchen, which gently awakens guests with inviting aromas of freshly baked goodies and brewed coffee for breakfast. Room service is of course also available, so after a long night of clubbing, you can have breakfast in the privacy of your villa. Life doesn’t get any better than this.
Drinks and tailor-made cocktails are available at Fluid in the evenings, while chill-out music complemented by candles after dark creates an intimate yet elegantly refreshing ambience.
The Balé is all set for your next getaway trip to Bali, and it will not disappoint. On the contrary, this chic abode will beckon for more visits.
