We only stayed here one night as we'd unknowingly checked into a room with no hot water. We had booked for a week during high season and the guys there were really nice about us leaving. The room we had was really nice and clean. Just be aware when booking the majority of rooms do not have hot water, fresh water does not mean hot.

Me and my cousin spent one week at aaliku in the beginning of september and we just had a gorgeous time there! The staff is very friendly, competent and most of all: so funny!
We really felt at home in our beautiful, clean and always well- smelling bungalow with the spacious open bathroom. the hotel workers were always willing to help us, give further information and they even showed as the local beach house, where they went for dinner with us.
We will never forget this amazing time neither the uncountable funny moments with baryan and "tiger" ( 2 workers from aaliku, so amiable!!)...
We will come back!!

We stayed at aaliku bungalows with 7 other friends. We had a wonderful time thanks to the helpful and friendly staff. Rooms were great : spacious and clean. tip: during the ramadan, don't forget your earplugs.

Room Tip: All rooms are great with private balcony. However, the reception room is less charming.

Aaliku was a great place on Gili T. We got a room for 3 GIRLS, and it was still very spacious. The guys who run the show are super chill and friendly, the rooms are really clean (did I mention they are huge?), the shower is good (fresh water) and the breakfast is great. We got the banana or lemon pancakes every morning.

The location is awesome because you aren't in the noisy section of Gili so you can leave the party when you want to. I would have liked to stay on the beach, but it's always more expensive and we did that in other places. So, besides this one concession, there is nothing bad I can say about Aaliku.

Tip: I think you may have to ask to have your room cleaned (can't remember for sure), but this was something common in Asia. So, not a complaint, just a tip. :)

Friendly staff en good room. It's also very quiet as you're a bit away from the loud bars.

Aaliku bungalows is perefctly situated on Gili T. It is a 50m walk from the harbour and minutes walk to all the bars and restaurants. However, as it is 50m inland, there is no noise problems from late night drinkers and it is extremely peaceful. We stayed in 'A room with a view' which was just fabulous. We had 2 balconies- one where we were brought breakfast each morning, and another which had a double bed with a canopy which we laid down on every night to look at the amazing stars. The staff here are great, always there to help you but don't pester you one bit- sooooo chilled out it was perfect.
We had friends staying at a place much more expensive than this and they fell in love with it and wished they had heard about it so...pass it on, Aaliku bungalows was amazing and made our honeymoon just yummy!

I booked this bungalow at the last minute. I was happy that the owner was very prompt in returning my emails. This bungalow is behind Mantra Dive . It's less than 1 minute walk away from the beach so it's quiet. I loved this place. The furniture was modern, simple, chic and very spacious. I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again. There is no pool but why would you want one when the beautiful beach is right there.

Bonus- not too far from the boat landing so the walk with your luggage is not far at all.
