Calmness, solitude and a life worth living.
Experience genuine serenity to your heart’s content at a truly “bali bali” (which means “beautiful” in the Pangasinan native dialect) close to nature delight.
Bali Bali Beach Resort takes pride of its uniquely positioned tourist-friendly attraction in the Island Garden City of Samal. Named after the famed Bali island of Indonesia, the resort is seemingly superior among other resorts in the region. It’s a semi-private one-hectare property at the southwest coastline of the Samal Island that is well-loved because of its exceptional guest services and amenities. The resort operates on pre-booked or pre-arranged accommodations; strictly no walk-ins. Exclusivity at its best.
Since December 2006 when it was formally opened to the public, Bali Bali Beach Resort has been the top-of-the-mind resort of lifestyle and vacation enthusiasts. Highly appreciated because of its stylish Asian-inspired six villas, the resort offers different Asian-themed ambiance of the Thai, Indonesia, Japanese, Filipino, Chinese, and Mediterranean cultures.
The resort is beyond doubt blessed with various flora and fauna; and an ingenious landscaping that preserves the authentic magnificence of nature. Guests coming in by land or by boat are warmly welcomed in The Pavilion, which serves as the main hall of Bali Bali where food is served. To maintain the serenity of the place married couple Mr. Romy and Mrs. Ester Garcia decided not to put television sets in the rooms, except only in the main sala of the pavilion. It sets perfectly the reflective atmosphere, where one can actually hear and appreciate the sounds of nature such as the calming sound of the sea waves, the cool breeze and the sweet songs of the birds and crickets.
Just right in front of the Pavilion is the major attraction of the resort – the highly inviting infinity pool, which extends its stunning sight up to the ocean. In the near end of the stretch from the Pavilion is the soothing beachfront where one can find two open huts or cabanas called the Bale Houses on both sides. These are ideal for a relaxing full body massage by the sea.
