To save time, please read Antonio V review as its spot on. Before moving to live in Bali, we stayed a few times at this very big Hotel and found overall it was okay. Our Family style rooms were very large and well set out, although they needed refurbishing and really our only complaints were that in one bathroom it always stunk of sewerage and on two stays I had to get them to fix the air-condition as was producing no cool air at all. Unless your a very good sleeper, don't stay at any pool side rooms, we did, but had to move next morning owing to the noise being made by inconsiderate drunken Australian guests and even though the poll is roped off at a certain time, at night, "some" guest take no notice of this and the Hotel staff don't enforce the poll open times. We found that for midday and evening meals the restaurant to the left when exiting on the beach side, was far taster, better selection and the beers were far colder and the cocktails were very good. We recently visited friends that were staying at the Baleka and discovered that major renovations and additions had been carried out, which included another poll and the whole complex looked really great and our friends who were staying in the new section commented that their room was very good. Overall, except for a few hiccups?, we have enjoyed our stays at the Baleka and going on our friends report about this Hotel, they will be returning.
I have always stayed in Seminyak but was travelling with a friend who wanted to be closer to Kuta so Legian was the compromise. I chose Baleka based on the glowing reviews people have left on here. I'm not sure if my standards are different, but I was less than pleased with my Superior room. My friend had a lagoon view room which was in the new section and was a nice, new clean modern room. Reception has been moved to the Padma Utara side of the complex and all the signage on Jl. Werkudara side has been removed which made finding it a task even though the taxi drivers knew where it was. Bali doesn't seem to be big on signs. The superior room I had was dark, gloomy and with a bathroom well in need of renovation. The lighting was so dim it was actually giving me a headache. I resorted to buying some brighter light bulbs for the lamp just so I could see. The other issue was lack of power points. It's obvious these rooms were built in the days prior to mobile phones as the only power points in the room were hidden behind the bedside tables and the only other power point for using the kettle involved unplugging the fridge and putting the kettle on the floor. After 2 days of that I went and bought a double adaptor. I couldn't use the wardrobe as the doors would not slide. Shower was reasonable but could have done with a soak in some descaler as half the holes were blocked and others squirting in different directions. Hot water was touch and go, but worked most of the time. Air conditioning worked well though. Although the room and furniture were very dark and gloomy, it was clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was rather good. It consisted of the usual dishes such as bacon, sausages, fresh fruit or fruit salad, yoghurt, coffee, tea, juices, pastries, toast and and egg station made to order. There was a variety of "special" dishes offered which always made breakfast an interesting start. My only frustration was the restaurant is a little small and finding a table was tricky sometimes. The staff were all very friendly and made you feel very welcome. Based on the grounds, breakfast, staff and location, the hotel was nice, but I would have been better off saving the extra money I paid for the superior room and taking one of the classic rooms. Alternatively, spend the extra and get the lagoon view (My friend was in 3208)
Staff brilliant , rooms beautiful, pools AMAZING, couldn't have been more friendly and relaxed thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will most defiantly be coming back Thankyou toni and the rest of the staff for such a great first experience
The hotel is situated the street behind the Jayakarta. The rooms have just been refurbished and the enterance was still being worked on. All rooms have views of the 2 pools. Great value at $60 a night (May 2017) It may change in the high season.
awesome, clean, friendly hotel. only downside was, we had to change rooms after our room type (that was booked and accepted on the hotels own website) wasn't available for our 1st night. this was the case for a couple of other people I had spoken too. not a great start, but they did try and rectify this as best they could. breakfast was good as well as the other food we had at the restaurant and room service. the room(s) were so lovely, and great beds too.
Stayed in Deluxe Room 4302 - top floor with balcony. Very spacious room with bigger than king size bed. Very comfortable bed with good quality bedding. The room smelt dry and fresh (we had stayed the previous 2 nights at the Grand Istana. Kuta Beach - very average & rooms smelt damp and musty). My older daughter stayed in a Lagoon Room Pool View Room 3111 which are newly renovated. This was a smaller room than mine but it was poolside and basically a new hotel room. Very flash. This room would be great with kids as pool is a couple of metres from the room. The Deluxe rooms are much larger & quieter (not being poolside) but entail an easy walk up 3 flights of stairs. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The pictures don't lie - bathrooms were top notch with abundant hot water and water pressure great (a rarity in Bali perhaps?). Aircon was A1. Buffet breakfast was good & we ate many times in the hotel restaurant - the beef burger was great. Hotel is in a good safe area with some fantastic restaurants located nearby. You can access Legian Beach easily via the Jayakarta Hotel about 50 metres away (under 5 minutes to beach). We will definately return and would probably stay in a Deluxe Room.
Baleka is one of rare local hotels (not a chain hotel) with a nice service. Located in Seminyak, made this place strategic. Approximately you only need 15 minutes to Seminyak beach and about 30 minutes to Legian and Kuta on foot. The room of mine was good since it just got renovated. Unfortunately, as I had a lot of activities outside, I didn’t really notice all of the facilities, except the swimming pool. With the good price and sufficient room size, for me Baleka is worth the money.
I was travelling on my own and I felt very safe and welcomed at this hotel. Staff always ready to have a chat and help you. Thanks to Kadek, Scooby and Net for your friendliness and great service. The room was clean and of a high standards. I was in a lagoon room and the only improvement I could suggest would be to make the placement of the shower head higher on the wall. It is too low. There are two pools and they were fantastic. Always sun beds available. Thanks for everything. I will be back to stay again.
New pool is great. Rooms are first class. Gardens are well kept. Breakfast is well done. The position of this resort is superb with many eating places nearby. Staff are so good. Infact why would you stay anywhere else, this resort has it all. Pool water temp. just right.
I stayed at Baleka Resort after it was recommended by a friend and I was so happy I did. The location is great, close to good restaurants and the beach. The staff are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were a good size and very clean and there are two lovely pools to enjoy. There is also a Buffet breakfast which changed daily. Will definitely be staying again soon.
