We spent 4days 3nite in Gili T. And we chose Aaliku based on the recommendation from Tamara (M'adison Gili). Becuse it was a peak season, so many hotels from our list are fully booked.
Aaliku was our very last option but we didn't regret it all.
It was our honeymoon so I told Charlie and Aaliku gave us compliment dinner at the Thai Resto nearby. It was a small resto but nothing to complain about. We never expect anything fancy ever since we stepped in Gili. Gili is about being humble and united with the nature. So, NOTHING FANCY is the proper way to spend holiday in Gili.
We love the pool for sure. It was decent and what I love about Aaliku is that they don't have that much of rooms so we don't have to share pool with too many people. Mostly just us. It's like having private pool afterall. (But sometimes, you need to remind the staffs to close the main door because the pool position is at the front with direct view on the public street)
Location is the best. Very close to the harbour and to the main street (central). Easy access and you can just walk when you first arrived.
Breakfast was very basic. So it is better to order room without breakfast and you can explore restos nearby. Because so many great restos with great menus along the street, and it's pretty close from Aaliku.
We loveeeeee our room so much! The room with a view.
It was pretty dissapointing that i didn't find any sofabed at our balcony (as it mentioned on the website), so Charlie, my next visit, pleaseeee I want my sofabed upstairs hehehee :)
In case you need to get your room being cleaned up daily, you have to tell the staff and leave your key. In case you need towel, ask them. Just do not bother to ask, they'll prepare your request anyway, do not expect anything pros or fancy, because they hired untrained locals. BUT, i love the staff (untrained locals) because they are very helpful and got us hooked up with pretty much what we need during our vacation in Gili T.
Overall, we loveeee our stay in Aaliku and definetely will put Aaliku on our options again for our next visit :)
Room with a view ! The best!
