Good villa, no direct beach access
the villa is close to the airport and in a a good location. currently there is a construction happening near it, so in the morning it is not quiet. also, there is no direct beach access, you have to get out of the property, walk across the street and through restaraunts. it is not far at all, but still a bit dissapointing.
the food is ok, but a bit expensive, better to eat at the restaurants on the beach.
the beach is great, as in many other places on bali.

Bagus! Bali Baliku
Good Location and Services
We had good time in Bali Baliku Villa and our impressions are as follows.
*Very friendly staffs and good services
*Very close to good Seafood Restaurant
*Swiming pool in the court is good for children especially a baby or a little child.
*There is a construction site in front of the rooms. Anyone can see from there. And opposite side maybe noisy by the traffic. After completion of the building, will become more comfortable.
*Breakfast is the same menu everyday...

Better than it looks on in photos
just across the car park is the famous sea food bbq and beach. the hotel was great except the supposed wifi that we got the password for was not existent which caused much frustration trying to get it until the consierge told us that it doesnt really work! also the biggest and most outrageous problem this hotel has is the massive 5 storey le meridian hotel construction site that was only 2 meters from the edge of our villa garden wall. the new building facade wall was so close it loomed a huge shadow over our gorgeous little villa garden and the construction workers could easily grab an eye full if they wanted to but i must admit it was a pretty quiet site in terms of how much noise and disturbance it could of emitted due to the proximity and size of the building. the villa is fine for one night but don't plan your whole holiday in this one.
Closest to jimbaran beach BBQ

My first time in Bali, on Honey moon these private villas are perfect for this.we were luckey enough to be there on Neipy Day :))) The food was fantastic, also the staff are awsome, it is in Jimbarum Bay across the road from great beach dining.
I dont really have any tips but on arrival the front of the Bali Baliku is fairly ordinary, but once inside fantastic!!!

Great staff and superb villa
Villa, food and staff were fantastic
Villa had its own pool, separate dining and lounge to the bedroom making it easy to put the cot (complimentary) so our toddler could sleep without us having to sneak in and out of the room. Own grass area and gazebo overlooking the pool. This was a very realxing place to stay with it all in the comfort of your own backyard. Very private. Staff were fantastic. Daily transfers into Kuta for free. Food was great and room service was very quick. Only downside is that it was on a very busy road making it a little noisy during the day. Very close to beach with about 5 restaurants. Better to walk past the restaurants if wanting to relax on the beach as it isnt very clean. Just past the restaurants the beach is swept daily and is very clean and tidy. The villas food was very well priced so we ate in alot of the time and enjoyed our own pool and villa. It was out of the way if you wanted to shop though but could be taken by the villa to wherever you were wanting.

Great location with a very warm service...
Friendly staffs, great location, very convenient...
First of all, villa is only 15mins from Denpasar Airport.. it is also facing the Jimbaran beach which provided alot of seafood galore choices! Circle K which is open 24hours located only 7mins walk from villa. Staffs are very friendly and provided warm services. Breakfast is so-so. This 2 bedroom villa with a private pool suitable for family with older children. Rooms and pool are nicely decorated. Bathrooms are superb! Living room is so spacious. Overall, i must say that I had a good experience with Bali
Baliku Villa and definitely will come back again for sure!

Great for romantic getaway at Jimbaran beach
Most value for money for a villa with private pool
1. 2 minutes walk to the nearest F&B stretch at Jimbaran
2. Friendly staff, rather well trained.
3. Receptionists have good command of English
4. Local breakfast is acceptable
5. We got our villa upgraded for free when we complained about lack of privacy from the construction next door.
6. Staff seems trustworthy and doesn't take any money lying around in our villa.
7. Value for money, I took a long time to find this pool villa at USD149 per night
8. Far from the northern areas, but short distances to southern areas such as Tanjong Benoa (sea sports) and Uluwatu (temple on the cliff).
1. Taxi drivers can't really navigate to Bali Baliku, you need to tell them it's near Hotel InterContinental
2. Villas 1 and 7 to 12 lack privacy. Le Meridien hotel is being built next door, to the south and to the west, with 5 storeys high as of March 2012.
3. Staffs need to enter the villa to do housekeeping and turn on/off the lights, and you can't hear the door knocks.
4. Staff forgets timing of wakeup call and breakfast choice
5. Electric mosquito repellant does not keep away insects and mosquito net around the bed does not provide full cover.
6. Airport transfer costs IDR100,000 when you can get them to call a Bluebird taxi and pay IDR32,000 meter fare.
7. Hot water runs out at night after 10 minutes. Takes an hour to replenish.
8. While it is at Jimbaran, it takes some time to head north to visit the places of interest. 11am morning traffic took us 45 minutes to hit Seminyak area on a 7-seater
Souvenir shopping: Krishna Oleh Oleh Bali (fixed prices, locals shop there so you bet it's cheap)
Nightlife: Better stay in Kuta area
Trekking: Consider staying at Kintamani or Bedugul. If you're going multiple trekking spots and do not want to hotel hop, staying in Ubud will reduce your travelling times. North-bound journeys usually transit through Ubud.
Local culture: You may want to visit Singaraja (northern city) to mingle more with the less affluent locals.
Diving/water sports: There are many dive spots to the north and east of Bali

Beautiful villa with great service!
Private pool with jacuzzi, spacious dining room, washroom & bedroom.
The main lobby of the villa looked deceiving at first, as to what we saw of its pictures online. We became somewhat skeptical at first, but our thoughts changed when we were welcomed by their very friendly frontline staffs. We were given a welcome drink, and wet towel to refresh ourselves from our flight. We chose our breakfast menu for the next morning over at the frontdesk before we were led to our private villa.
The private villa we got, Melati villa was beautiful. The amenities were very clean as well.
There wasn't much construction noise. When we came back from our outing, we were surprised to see that our bed was being decorated with roses, and the room was all dim lit. It was a romantic moment.
The location of the villa was also good, and very accessible to town and shops. The staffs were kind enough to engage a personal driver to bring us around Bali the next day.
Not to forget, the beach was also beautiful..
It was indeed a very wonderful and memorable stay in Bali Baliku. We would definitely consider a comeback again.
Engage a personal driver to bring you around instead of going on a tour. Personal driver can just drop you anywhere that you request, (buy a takeaway KFC, stop by the side road to "shop & go").

Wonderful hotel with excellent facilities
Friendly and helpful staff, good restaurant, pool.
we had a very positive stay at bali baliku. we booked two houes and they have all the facilities, we could wish for.
all the staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay. the reception, housekeeping, restaurant and all other staff did their best to make our stay as good as possible.
the hotel is located in jimbaran, which is a rather quiet place compared to kuta etc. but is still has all the facilities necessary. the beach is only 50 m away with all the seafood-restaurants, jimbaran is known for.
i will give my best recommendation for bali baliku for all travellers.
