Normally I would have saved the best to last but I had no idea how amazing our first stop of our Bali trip this year was going to be. The Balé has been open for more than 10 years but it has the feeling of a modern or newly renovated unknown gem. It was the most calming and relaxing experience I have ever had travelling. The hotel is a part of a group of resorts by Lifestyle Retreats, located a short drive (provided by the hotel) from Geger beach. Chosing a hotel in Nusa Dua can be quite frustrating with the amount of hotels to chose from but this really is a new favourite for me, we will be back!
