My husband and I had the most amazing stay at Casa Mali! The open-air villa was so serene and gorgeous. The hospitality at Batik was fantastic - from the groundskeeper and housekeeping staff to Dahlia, their super cool concierge. The kitchen was fully-equipped - though the only one who took complete advantage of that was the private chef who cooked an incredible meal on our final night - throughout the week we enjoyed amazing meals at local restaurants (on Dahlia's recommendations). The bathroom is indoor/outdoor but completely private and a cool experience. The bedrooms are the only completely enclosed rooms but have plenty of windows and option for tons of sunlight. The living area has fun furniture options and a great private pool for cooling off or just relaxing. We coordinated all of the activities of our stay with Dahlia, who was extremely helpful and easy to reach. We rented a quad for the week - which was much better (and more fun) to drive through the town than our rented SUV (but beware of dust). Batik is a very well-maintained hidden gem and the town is a charming slice of paradise. We enjoyed awesome meals and lots of local activities (surf lessons, horse riding on the beach, zip lining and nature walk tour). The beach is a very short walk from Batik - but a nice one through a tree-lined path. We can't recommend Batik/Casa Mali highly enough!! We have the best memories of our trip and hope to get back to Batik again in the near future!
