My 3rd very happy stay in this dear, beautiful place (the "Magic").
And each time I want to stay longer and leaving gets more difficult (the "Curse").

Places like Cilik's - keeping high professional standards without losing their intimacy and grace - are hard to find, also on Bali.

Cilik's is so much more than the total of its wonderful gardens and houses, dedicated staff, dolphins in the sea, sunrises and sunsets, etc.

It is the true Balinese spirit that permeates it all.

To the ENTIRE staff:
THANK YOU for so many beautiful moments, conversations, jokes and advice: either "on the road" (Putu and Ktut) or "at home" (everybody).

To beautiful Diah and baby Gde: for making my happy and sharing the wisdom of the young,

To Nyoman for again spotting hundreds of dolphins (while catching my diner) and remaining always patient,

To Jro Mangku Dalang (and his team) for taking me to the wonderful wayang kulit,

AND to Rudy: for being there !

Stayed in the Oktagon for 5 nights and had as amazing time! It was really nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of southern Bali and enjoy the real Bali of the north!

Amazing room, sensational food and really friendly staff and locals.

Do yourself a favour and give Ciliks Beach
garden a try - it's a little slice of Bali heaven!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ciliks Beach Garden. It's very quiet and relaxing. The food was great. We also had an opportunity to participate in the baby naming ceremony while we were there. It was a blessing for us to be there and had a great cultural experience. All the staff were so friendly and hospitable. We felt very much at home there. Thank you for everything. We had the best vacation.

Our stay at Cilik's Beach Garden was the highlight of our visit to north Bali. Memories of the experience are sure to live on with us for years. To start, the location under the trees and facing northward is ideal because there is always shade from the tropical sun. A steady breeze from the sea during the day and from the hills to the south coming in the evening made the site exceptionally pleasant. Staying at Ciliks Beach Garden was unlike any hotel experience. We felt more like guests staying in the owner's tastefully curated vacation bungalow, The Oktagon. Our bungalow's attendant, Wayan, was readily available and kept the Oktagon beautiful for us. Our meals seemed home-cooked with great skill. The pineapple / ginger jam served at breakfast was superb, made by our server's wife. There were various food options available at mealtime, making the private dining even better than eating with a family. Swimming or wading at the small black-sand beach is a great pleasure, and even more relaxing is an outdoor massage, in the shade under the trees, with steady cooling sea breezes and the mesmerizing rhythm of surf breaking on the sea wall just meters away. Heaven should be so lovely.

BLISS

How to describe Ciliks Beach Garden when words as Paradise, Heaven and Perfection all have been used so many times before?

My first stay (June 2014; review To share or keep a secret) was extended on the spot and I have been homesick ever since.
This year my base for the entire 3 weeks was again the Octagon: "my lovely home".

The dreamlike gardens, the beauty of the houses, the great food, the lovely trips, the high standard of service and genuine warmth and grace of the entire staff: all had remained the same!

This is the place to come for real peace, to enjoy the changing light of the day in your own tropical garden, be put to sleep by the voice of the sea and be cared for by the kindest, funniest and charming people (I cannot praise them enough!).

Meeting Jersan, new junior manager and son of the Balinese founder, ensured me that the future of this unique place is in the right hands: a most charming, capable and very helpful young man (and recently married to a very sweet and beautiful girl). A joy to get to know them both!

Ciliks Beach Garden: thanks to the dreams, vision and hard work of Rudy, Cilik, Putu and all others - Pure Magic!

Until we meet again in April…

Wir freuen uns und sind glücklich, wenn auch unsere Gäste empfinden, was wir selbst erleben, sobald wir - die ausländischen Partner - in Bali sind : dass unsere balinesischen Freunde durch ihre Arbeit geschaffen haben, was wir erträumt und gemeinsam geplant haben, und dies nun mit grosser Sorgfalt erhalten und pflegen.
Manche Gäste suchen mit wenigen Internet-Klicks schlicht einen Platz zum Übernachten. Die sind bei uns fehl am Platz.
Andere suchen in langer Recherche einen Ort zum Entspannen, zum Auftanken, zum Glücklich-sein. Wenn die uns und wir sie finden, dann kommt es zu Erlebnissen, wie sie aus dem obigen Review sprechen. Glück auf beiden Seiten !
Rüdiger (happy, because the vision became true)
for Cilik and the entire CBG family!

We are very pleased and happy when our guests feel, what we - the foreign partners - experience ourselves when staying in Bali : through their work our Balinese friends have created what we have dreamed and planned together, and this is now obtained and maintained with great care.
Some guests are looking - just with a few internet clicks - simply for a place to stay overnight. They are out of place in CBG.
Other guests research carefully a place to relax, to refuel, to be happy. If we find them, and they find us, then experiences occur as they become apparent in the above review. Bliss on both sides!
