Straight out of a dream -- beautiful views, service, friendly welcome, excellent food, wonderful private excursions. It is wonderful to be in Bali but away from the touristy, mundane places. Should have written this review when I visited a year ago but I was reminded of the place today when a friend asked for a recommendation in Bali.

My partner and I stayed in Balam Bali Villa for a night only, because we need to continue our road trip to another places. It's too bad actually because we might have more opportunity to enjoy the scenery in the neighborhood. During our stay, we didn't see another guest, just the owner and the staff, so we felt like being... More

Thank you so much for your review. We are indeed a bit far away... from the South of the island, not a quite place, but close to many Balinese treasures. Easy to spend a full week with us. More

My partner and I just spent a week at Balambali villa. Balambali villa is a beautiful boutique hotel in an amazing tranquil setting in the middle of the rice paddies.

Stay in Balam Bali Villa was a great experience. It means to plunge in real Bali far from the touristic sector. It was great to stay inside the rice fields in quiet place.

Dear guest, We are always happy when the guests are happy ! We try to show the "real" Bali, far from the sea: Balinese are farmers, they are dedicated to the rice, fertility and water. The first religion in Bali was most certainly a freshwater cult. The sea ?.... it is where impurities go. You did the right thing with... More

Hands down, Balam Bali Villa was the best part of our Bali vacation.

I am writing this from beside the swimming pool at Balam Bali waiting to leave to get our flight home. It’s described as a B&B, but it’s perhaps more small boutique hotel.

As this was my fourth stay there is little I can add except I just love staying here. Consistently great staff, attention to detail and a beautiful setting all contribute to an enjoyable experience.
