Pavilions with pools and alfresco showers dot this sleek spa retreat, where the hip and healthy come together
The Indian Ocean is only minutes away, but it’s not really the main attraction at the Balé. This luxe 29-pavilion retreat scores high on the hip factor, with its subtle attention to detail. Relaxation and decompression come easy here, especially at the spa, where world class yoga teachers share space with renowned healers. Geger Beach is within walking distance, but most guests prefer to stay on the property and lounge around the multilevel infinity pool.
Bed and Bath
The minimalist pavilions (the smallest of which measures 2,583 square feet) are designed for indoor/outdoor living. Each has a private garden, pool, outdoor daybed, sleek hand-styled furnishings and Zen-inspired touches, such as orchids and indoor and outdoor showers.
Upon arriving at the spa, each guest meets with a consultant to customize a program suited to his or her needs. Yoga, meditation, pranayama, healing massage and energy treatments are all offered alongside full-on detox programs, tai chi and martial arts. In keeping with the wellness theme, Bliss restaurant at the spa offers cuisine infused with local healing herbs. And Faces, the alfresco and healthier-than-you-know restaurant, is run by a charismatic chef; or enjoy tapas and signature cocktails at the newly-opened TAPA Bistro. You don’t have to be a spa aficionado to fall in love with the Balé, but chances are you’ll leave feeling energized and healthier than when you arrived. The ambience inspires you to surrender completely to the stress-reducing offerings at this smart lifestyle retreat.
