Most impressive experience
We had four nights in two villa's. This accomodation is set up by a German Antropology professor. It is ran by locals. We booked this accomodation to visit the Dani tribes. From this compound it is a reasonable walk to Dani tribes. The ressort will assist you with a locale guide on your expedition to the tribes. You can choose from a few hours till five days of walking to tribes. We dit two expeditions and we found it amazing. Visiting the tribes is one of our most impressive experiences ever. If you are an adventurous type than this is a must for you. ......... Then about the accomodation: the (local) management is excellent. They help you in any way. They realy do their best to serve you. The villa's are what you can expect in rainforest. Not of the five star luxury but functional, suitable, safe and Ok. This is the heart of Papoea. This is way back from the modern world. If you like adventure than we highly reccomend the Baliem Valley Resort. We will never forget this visit, is was amazing. We are a family of four, two daughters 14 and 16 of age. It's a long journey to get there but it is certainly worth it. Thank you dr. Weinglein for this unforgettable experience.

nice facilitys, rooms but poor meals
This is a resort, which gets nice huts with good facility. The room and bathroom is clean and for papuan standards very good quality. every hut has a view over the valley. The Setting of the resort is nice but not in the forest. Behind it a degraded forest starts, which is ok for birding but is very good for orchids. The meals in the restaurant have to be orderd in advance, at dinner it is not easy to make new orders. You can´t pay with credit card, so take enough Money, because the rooms, meals etc. are expensiv. The Manager speaks english

Great location, but that's it
I usually don't like to write negative reviews so let's start with the positive stuff. We stayed 4 nights at the resort, two nights with 6 other guests, two nights as only guests. The location is great, the main house provides a fantastic view over the Baliem Valley, the rooms are spacious with a veranda and also offer partial views. The road to the resort is a disaster. It takes you 30 to 40 bone breaking minutes from the main road to reach the resort. If you plan excursions be aware that you have to take this road twice a day. The resort owners should do something about the road or warn potential guests. Service and food was disappointing. The manager (from Sulawesi) excused everything with "this is Papua, everything is different". Simple food is fine for us, but if you get bland food presented loveless and without a smile for four nights in a row and almost have to beg to get some chili or soya sauce or god beware tissues it becomes very irritating. We left with the impression that the owners want to maximize profit and don't care to train the local staff to become better in what they are doing. I recommend to visit the resort on a day trip to enjoy the view but stay down in Wamena.

Spirit of adventure
Three essentials: bug spray, flashlight, poncho and umbrella during rainy season The electricity does go out so have a good strong flashlight for the resort and if you go exploring in caves. We were there during rainy season which means off and on rain sometimes and definitely muddy hikes and slippery rocks but everything is green and lovely flowers. One stays in comfortable huts, unfortunately sometimes they leak and the resort are fixing the roofs. The showers are spacious and made out of rocks. Plenty of hot water but need to wait about twenty minutes between showers for hot water to heat up again. There is no shampoo or conditioner provide but they do provide a hair dryer but you must ask for it. We had incense going every night in the bathroom and bedroom and it definitely helped the insect situation. You must ask for it. Beds are comfortable...mattress on a platform and provide adequate blankets for cool nights. Though the blankets are a bit worn and fuzzy looking. The closet was missing the handles and had only three bamboo hangers. We did not use the closet as it smelled of mold and was musty. There are no shelves for clothing though there is a desk there. No WiFi. We had a beautiful view of the valley and the mountains beyond. The food was good with lots of rice and sweet potatoes which are the speciality here. Afternoon teas with fried bananas or fried sweet potatoes were delicious. The manager, Mr. Madi is very helpful and tries to honor all your request. The staff is friendly and works hard for you.

Unique experience
Was at the resort for 9 days. Took many hikes that lasted 4-5 hours. They are very strenuous because of excessive mud and wet rocks. The views are spectacular. The huts are quite large with large full length windows over looking the valley. The bathrooms are large with large showers. We were very pleased with the daily housekeeping. The food was very good with a good variety changing daily. After a day of hiking we were welcomed back with coffee and tea and a snack of freshly made fried bananas or sweet potatoes. You must be aware this is Papua and even more remote than PNG. Considering that, the accommodations were much better than expected. We found them very comfortable. The view from the resort across the Baliem Valley is spectacular. I advise booking thru Dr. Weiglein in Germany. I found it much easier than going thru the Bali agency. Marc did a great job customizing the trip. As other reviewers said, the Pig Roast is an unforgettable experience. This trip will change your perspective on the people of the world.
