A long time DNA Hotels' favourite, The Balé is a luxury adult-only resort in Nusa Dua, Bali, a few minutes' walk from the beach. It offers spacious villas with butler service, private pools and outdoor showers. The style is minimalist, perhaps more Japanese than Indonesian.
A balé is a traditional Balinese pavilion, and it’s a fitting (if prosaic) name for this hotel. These pavilions are anything but traditional, though; sharp, clean lines, sleek dark woods and Zen-inspired furnishings. Facilities include air conditioning, a flat-screen TV, ✅free daily replenished minibar, and tea and coffeemaking facilities. Selected villas have a choice of select spa treatments or meals at no charge. 24-hour room service. The pavilions are surrounded by sandstone walls for privacy, and come with private pools, an open-air pillared veranda with a daybed, and an outdoor shower.
Faces Restaurant has an open kitchen serving Continental fare, while organic cuisine is available at Bliss Restaurant. The poolside Fluid Bar & Lounge provides a casual setting to enjoy drinks, and Tapa Bistro serves cocktails and tapas-style dishes from around the world. ✅Breakfast is included in the rate.
The Balé's spa features a relaxing menu of body and face treatments, while the well-equipped fitness centre ensures a refreshing workout. The resort also provides private yoga rooms and a quiet library.
