We enjoyed our five night stay at Baliku very much. Our private Villa (#1) has an amazing view, the staff is wonderful and so eager to please, and the food was very good (try the black rice pudding for breakfast!) The snorkeling or diving right off of the beach is amazing and the dive shop staff very eager to help. So it has all the trappings of a five star rating, except for the little things that would make it so. For example, at all of the other places we stayed in Bali, there was a book in the room which talked about the area and gave examples of things to do. Since Baliku is in a remote area, we had to figure it out by ourselves, and while the staff is awesome, English is not their primary language, so it was sometimes difficult to know whether we were successful in making ourselves understood, and as a result, we probably didn't do as much as we might have. At the other places, the owners were around, so they were able to help us. The villa was wonderful, but again there were little things that need attention - the paint was peeling off of the wall in the bathroom, none of the dispensers for the shampoo, conditioner or bubble bath worked, and there was confusion about the ride we had arranged through the owner as the staff didn't seem to have a record of it, as examples. But again, we absolutely would recommend Baliku and would come back again, it just didn't quite get to the five star mark, but certainly a strong four!
