Baliku is a special place with wonderful, hospitable staff. The ocean and mountain views are absolutely stellar and simply cannot be captured by camera. We were even graced with a full moon, which just lit the entire ocean and provided us with an unbelievable backdrop for our delicious dinners on the balcony. The food is fantastic! We did have some plumbing issues that sadly, did not get resolved. This resulted in some pretty terrible smells in our villa, throughout our stay, putting a definite damper on things. We also had some issues with linen that did not smell fresh. Still, our time at Baliku was some of our most memorable in Bali. Yes, there are a lot of steps at the property but if you are somewhat fit, it is not a problem and absolutely worth the view. The staff even arranged for a very inexpensive full body massage on the balcony. Great snorkeling right across the street, at the site of the Japanese Shipwreck. Baliku sits above a village, so you will experience noise and goings on of the town, including the prayers on the intercom, as well as the smells and sounds of the farm animals. We appreciated being connected / immersed in this way. I will dream of this place and our time at Baliku always.
