NUSA DUA, BALI
Explore the ‘other side’ of Bali, about a 30-40 min drive over the new (and visually stunning) bypass which takes your right over the ocean. If you’re already in Jimaran it’s only a 15 minute drive from there.
If your planning on splashing out for a few nights on your Bali trip, The Balé is the place to do it. Being only 20min from the airport, it’s an easy start or end to your holiday with a stay at this luxury hotel. Enjoy a welcome refreshing ginger mint soda on arrival at this tropical hillside resort. As you sit in one of the comfortably cushioned pool huts, a host will consult you about your stay to ensure your time at the Bale is perfect, next you are shown to your room, or should I say palace. Each ‘room’ or villa, has it’s own private pool, a giant bed framed by palm trees through a glass window, bathtub, complimentary mini bar and a poolside pavilion with an equally large day bed where you can chill, order a massage, read, daydream order breakfast (or any meal for that matter). The hotel also has a wellness spa, hotel and two restaurants.

The bale offers a wellness menu which includes water pilates, yep combinding two of my favourite things turns out to be quite effective. Using floatation equipment this flowing-water based workout uses core-stability to work on toning and definition, flexibility, strength and body awareness.
Yoga Day Spa
Another must-do on the wellness menu is the one-day set program of yoga practices (guided meditation, pranayama, and asanas) combined with healing massage at The Spa, or pool and sun bathing. Complete with wholesome vegetarian meals!
Nothing like a library right in the hotel lobby, books, magazins, CDs & dvds in a cute room with complimentary snacks at The Bale
