We went to Balikana in 2003 and in 2006. In 2003 there wasn’t a swimming pool or hot water and in 2006 they started with the new accommodations but we had the swimming pool and hot water. We had a great time here and enjoyed our stay. We were looking for a accommodation to experience the ‘bounty island’ feeling. And...

Ok, I feel obligated to write this review since we booked this resort based on favorable reviews on Tripadvisor. My friends and I stayed for 3 nights during March 2008. We all left this place sharing the same feeling of disappointment. I will start with the positives and try to offer a balanced view of this place. Rooms & Facilities...

After a long trip to get to Gili, Made and Janis were awaiting our arrival and were very helpful and friendly as we checked into our room. It was nicely equipped with an outdoor bathroom open to the sky, and a large room with a bed and mosquito net, a refrigerator, and air conditioning. The pool area was quite nice...

Balikana has the potential to be what it sets out to, but hasn't got there yet, thus disappointing by leaving a gap between expectations and delivery. Janis was great at communicating re reservations although having to pay in full in advance you have to hope you like what you see when you get there, as its no refunds. We had...

My boyfriend and I initially booked this hotel because of all the positive feedback on this site, but our experience couldn't have been more different. I initially emailed the owner, Janis, who was very good at responding to emails and booked a room at a discounted rate because we were travelling out of season (this was advertised on their site...

After reading these reviews and looking on the balikana website I decided this looked like the best place to stay on the Gillis, and booked in to stay along with my partner and another couple over the New Year period. This is one of the most expensive resorts on the island, and I'm really not sure why. When we arrived...

If you are ever anywhere near the Gili Islands in Indonesia, this near perfect resort in the quiet north part of Gili Trawangan - the largest of the three Gili Islands - is a dream. For couples and those looking for a quiet few days (or weeks!) relaxing, eating fine food and snorkelling in the pristine waters (we saw 11...

Welcome to the other side of the world... If you are looking for a romantic retreat this is it. Gili Tranwagan is often described as the party island, which is true as every two days you can party all night. But Balikana is perfect if you like going for a drink and a bit of a party but going back...

Time, along with worries and stress, seemed to melt away while I stayed at the Balikina. Every morning I enjoyed being served my breakfast sitting on the veranda; gazing into the Bali Sea; listening to the waves crashing into the shore; savoring my Balinese coffee.
