About this listing
Gunung Merta Bungalows is a collection of 8 unique guest rooms set within a traditional Balinese home compound of a high caste family in the cultural village of Ubud. Overlooking the Mas River and rice field view
Gunung Merta literally means ‘tree of life’ and travellers choosing to stay here have the opportunity to experience an authentic Balinese lifestyle by interacting with the family and participating in their daily activities.
Ideal balian garden with fantastic swimming pool. Very good service and attention. Lovely staff. Perfect situation. For sure...I recomend this place.
Gusde was very welcoming and the staff were friendly and attentive. The garden and the pool was beautiful and serene, perfect for a relaxing getaway. Location was good as it is located in a quieter area and it only takes a 5-minute walk to get to Ubud centre. The breakfast served was excellent in taste and presentation and I wished for a bigger portion! Thank you for the lovely hospitality.
The bungalows were even better than what I excepted, the property is very traditional and has a lot of charm. We were very well welcomed, advised to places around and served by a very kind staff. I definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Ubud and seeking for traditional and peaceful atmosphere. Thank you very much Gusde.
Such a beautiful room in a very charming environnement. Very well located near to the center of Ubud but in a quiet place. Gusde and his family are very kind and very helpful, they arranged for us a moped rental. I strongly recommand this accomodation ! The best we had in Bali !
Had a great stay in this family compound. Our room was comfortable and it wasn't too far from the center of Ubud. Gusde was a gracious host and took the time to answer my inquiries.
Lovely place run by a friendly family and their staff. Walking distance from the center of Ubud. The swimming pool was very nice and breakfast was very good as well. Would definately recommend going there!
We had the most wonderful time at Gusde's home stay. Gusde's family is extremely welcoming, and the service here is impeccable. A lovely breakfast can be delivered to your room; our breakfasts were the most authentic Balinese breakfasts we had on our trip.
The grounds are stunning and immaculately maintained. The complex has a tranquil atmosphere as it is fully enclosed and off the main drag of Ubud. The rooms are comfortable and although the bathrooms are basic they are clean, fully functional with hot water and good pressure. The photos do not lie; the pool is sublime.
One thing to note is that it is a 20 minute walk into central Ubud; this didn't pose much of a problem for us as we don't mind walking but it might for some.
Overall, staying here was a highlight of our trip, and we will definitely be coming back next time we're in Bali!
