Balesin Island Club – Bali Village

Balesin Island Club - Bali Village-001

This is my last post in the series about Balesin Island Club. Bali Village is actually the 6th of 7 villages in the exclusive members only resort in Quezon province in the Philippines. Toscana Village is still being built.

This is the clubhouse/restaurant of Bali Village.

This is the only village with two swimming pools, one on each side of the clubhouse.

The villas were set away from the beach.

These villas are also very popular because of the big wrap around porch.

The room’s layout was the same as Balesin and Phuket villages.

The bathroom also has an additional outdoor shower.

When we weren’t at the beach or the pool our favorite place to lounge around was at Nusa Dua, the big open air bar.

The bar was surrounded with comfy couches perfect for lazing around and reading a book while enjoying the view and sound of the water on all three sides. It was quite breezy here that’s why we loved hanging out at Nusa Dua.

We noshed on delicious kropek (prawn crackers) and a bit too spicy crunchy dilis (anchovies).

A gorgeous view, soothing sounds of waves, an ice cold cocktail and cool breeze is my idea of relaxation.

We had a late light lunch at their restaurant. Too bad they won’t serve food at Nusa Dua other than snacks and drinks.

It was my first time for me to try nasi goreng and I loved it! The rice was so well flavored that I didn’t even need to pair it with the chicken or beef sate. It was just a tad too spicy for me.

I didn’t care for the laksa since I found the taste lacking in oomph.

Bali Village has two water villas and it’s the hottest place to stay in Balesin Island Club. These two villas are always the first to be booked. Each villa can sleep 4-5 comfortably and costs P10,000.

On our last morning we went back to Nusa Dua and saw the effects of low tide.

We saw the staff cleaning one of the water villas and requested to take a tour. I was so happy they agreed.

The first thing that caught my attention was the vaulted ceiling.

The room was basically the same but had 2 sofa which converted into single beds. I tried lying down on it and it was quite comfy.

What made this villa different was a wrap around porch with numerous seating for you to enjoy the view.

I gave the couch a try and I believe I could easily fall asleep here specially with the sounds of the water lulling me to sleep.

Need more beds? Sleep outside on the day bed with mosquito net.

The bathroom was the same too except for the door which led to the outdoor shower.

The outdoor shower was huge! It occupied almost a quarter of the back area. It was easily three times bigger than the ones in the regular villas.
