The Balinese are quite open and generally welcome visitors. You can enter most temples freely. Wear a sash around waist and preferably a Sarong.
Big temples can hire a sarong at the front gate but nice to have your own. You can buy a sarong in Ubud market.
Woman who are menstruating must wait out side the temple.
If you visit a holy spring like Pura Tirtha Empul and decided to try bathing, keep your cloth on and leave the shampoo behind. it is not a bath, but an immersion on holy water. for spiritual cleansing.

Overall our 6 night experience was very good. Having the pool was a bonus in the heat. The bedroom was air-conditioned and bed firm, bathroom adequate. Everyday the breakfast was a fabulous surprise, well presented with great variation. The Host Manager Wayan was happy to accommodate us for all our requests from adding furniture to our living area, home delivery of food from the associated restaurant in town ,& to driving us in and out of Ubud. This was our first Bali visit & first stop in the 2week journey. Great introduction to Bali.
Cozy, quiet and top service. We got transportation to were ever we wanted. We'd love to come back.
3박 4일간 있었는데. 이제 떠나려니 너무아쉽고 아쉽고 아쉬워요.
가격대비 너무 훌륭해서 ㅎㅎㅎ
위층 방에 사람이 없어서 완전 독채빌라처럼 사용했어요.
아침밥 느므 잘나오구요.
하루는 나시고렝. 미고렝으루 나오고
하루는 팬케익. 이런식으루 번갈라나옵니다. 에피타이져로 이쁘게 카빙된 과일도 한접시 그리구 생과일 주스도. 그리고 커피도 줘요. 젬장. 아침부터 배부름;; ㅋㅋㅋ
우붓 중심가와 떨어져 있어서
매일 마다 시골 집으로 돌아가는 느낌을 받았거든요.
스쿠터를 빌리면 이동. 투어등에 전혀 문제가 없는 오히려 더 좋울 수 있는 위치구요. 스쿠터는 하루에 5000원이면 빌리구. 기름(petrol) 은 1500이면 만땅 채워집니다.
아 진짜 한달은 그냥 눌러있고 싶네요. 이동네 (우붓).
We can fully recommend Gusde House. The place is nice, clean and quiet. The people took great care for all our needs incl. laundry, providing scooter, organizing a driver and much more. Nice breakfast and quiet pool area. The place is a little bit outside Ubud but with a scooter you can reach the center of Ubud within 3-5 minutes depending on your racing and traffic jam skills. They provide a shuttle twice a day to and back and even a driver cost you just some thousand rupies :-)
Staying at Gusde 's house made our trip memorable. They have been very accommodating since day 1. The house was clean and very cozy. Exploring the beautiful place of ubud was so incredible. Wayan and his friend who drove us around the area and to amed was so nice. If you are planing to explore ubud! Gusde is the best place. All in one, they can provide a service of day tour. We will definitely come back and stay at Gusde again.

The Gusde House located in the suburb so a car is necessary if you want to explore the Ubud Center. Generally speaking, the whole environment and the room was nice and clean, and they even make a small special decorations for our honeymoon, which is sweet. The people worked there were friendly and welcoming. Although they didn't offer hairdryer they try to borrow one from other customers. The breakfast was tasty and fresh. There's only one thing made us feel not so happy. After we had lunch at Bali Pesto restaurant in Ubud center (also owned by Gusde), we asked the waiter to call for a pickup, but we had waited for more than 40 minutes there's still no one came. We asked the waiter to recall, they just ask us to wait. Later I had to ask my hired driver to take me back to check-out and I found that there's no one in the front desk but leaving several baggages there. My driver helped to look for someone at the backyard finally. That really ruined my mood a bit.
Thank you for your review and I am sorry for any inconvenience. Here I will try to answer about FREE SHUTTLE, when you asked for shuttle it was not our schedule yet, as you know you asked shuttle back to villa around 2 a clock to 2,30 ( our shuttle back to house at 4 pm,7pm and 10 pm). We also flexible to change the time table as long as our guest willing to wait, moreover we normally do not offer shuttle when the guest already check out.
Secondly about your baggage, we only small house , we are not hotel and we are in safe area, my staff just left few minutes to help their friend and other staff having lunch just a cross of the street and he also called his friend by radio when he saw you were coming.
I hope in the next holiday we can provide you with better service and thank you for staying with us.
Everyone involved with Gusde house welcomed us and made us feel at home, including advising us and driving us where we needed to go.
