A bit hard to find but once there its beautiful.Not a lot to do in the area but nice beaches not far would recommend this property to everyone.The staff are very nice and helpful
Really enjoyed our time at LaBalian, staff were so friendly and accomodating. The house, gardens and pool were beautifully kept.
In search of a less hectic Bali break than our usual Legian/Seminyak experience, my husband and I ventured a little further afield to Tabanan and the beautiful La Balian.
Set amongst emerald green rice paddies and jungle, yet only minutes from an internationally famous surf beach, the location suited us perfectly.
Our host Polly, had thought of everything to ensure our late night arrival went smoothly and we were greeted by wonderful staff and a stunning meal.
All the suites are beautifully appointed, comfortable and stylish, set amongst the lush gardens. A classic understated elegance resonates though the whole property. We were looked after beautifully by the staff and the choice of menu and quality of meals provided was first class and to be applauded.
We had a fantastic and relaxing stay and will definitely be returning with other family members to enjoy the beautiful La Balian yet again.
We are from Germany and got married in Bali and rented LaBalian Villa and Retreat for a week to host our family. All in all we were 14 people and occupied all 8 bedrooms.
The villa is about a 2h drive from the airport and lies within lush green rice fields.
We were very warmly greeted by the staff with welcome drinks and refreshments and our first impression was even better than we had expected from the pictures online. The rooms are modern and furnished in a simple, minimalistic style with outdoor bathrooms surrounded by jungle. The AC worked well and was very quiet. The staff cleans everyday and changes towels and linens (two very sweet girls who will take care of you and organize everything from daytrips to Ubud to massages at the villa).
The infinity pool is beyond awesome, also very clean and from the edge you have a great, relaxing view over the rice fields.
Breakfast was included, we could choose from different options: American style with bacon and eggs or healthier, with fruit, cereals and banana pancakes. Indonesian style breakfast was also available. Of course we tried everything and it was all delicious ;)
For dinner we had Vicky, the local chef, cook for us. Her food was among the best we had tried in Bali. We paid around 60€ for a dinner for 14 px, including ingredients and the service fee for preparation, cooking, laying the table and cleaning up afterwards.
The beach is about a 20 min walk away with beautiful black volcanic sand and ideal for surfing. It's actually a very nice walk through the rice fields and balian village.
If you're looking for a luxury getaway that is not overrun by tourists, very reasonably priced and with all the comforts and amenities anyone could wish for, then this is the right spot for you.
And don't make the mistake to book only 1 or 2 nights. You most certainly will regret it ;)
We were 10 Adults and 5 children ranging in age from 88yrs - 5mths. We have been to Bali many times are were wanting to experience the Bali of old with mod cons. This beautiful Villa could not have been more perfect. It is set in blissfully quiet rice paddies in the countryside. The 8 bedrooms are all lovely and have great aircon, fantastic bathrooms and their own TV's. The infinity pool is very large with a great swim-out for the little ones. We dined on the outdoor patio every night. Vicki prepared beautiful lunches and dinners all very reasonably priced. We did venture down to the local beach for lunch twice which was enjoyable. All the staff are amazing, we wanted to take them home with us! Polly, the owner, was great to deal with, nothing was too much trouble. It is a long drive from the airport (2-3hrs) but well worth it. We dream that we will return again one day.
