Since you will be staying in Balinese village in the middle of rice paddy, we will be appreciate if you could stop using pool by 9 pm and also no music played.
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.
Expect to pay a small donation before entering a temple. This donations are put to good use and help with the upkeep of the grounds and the temple itself.....
Everyone involved with Gusde house welcomed us and made us feel at home, including advising us and driving us where we needed to go.
The Gusde house is so beautiful! I had an absolutely wonderful time there. I stayed one week and was so glad I chose to stay in Ubud and the Gusde guesthouse. The room and the whole place is just breathtaking. It was more beautiful than in the pictures and the surrounding area of Ubud is just incredible. They serve a great breakfast every morning at their small restaraunt which also has lunch and beer, and is on site at the guesthouse.
I traveled to Bali alone, but they were so kind and welcoming and made getting around to see all the sights I wanted to see so easy. Their driver Wayan works just for Gusde and took me to Ubud center or anywhere in Ubud everyday and back home for free. To take you outside of Ubud they charge you a reasonable amount depending on how far or how much you want to do. Having Wayan as my driver made my trip so much better than expected. He speaks very good English and knows everything there is to know about Bali. And I got to see way more than I expected.
Ubud is a great central location to see many surrounding sights. I was so glad i didnt stay in Kuta and the South near the airport it was so commercial and hectic definitely not where you want to be if you want to relax and take in the beauty of the island.
It was absolutely great!
I was traveling on my own and when I arrived to villa I felt so welcome!
On all of my questions I've always got an answer: "No problem"! it is very cosy and very safe there.
they looked after me like if I was really a member of theirs family or a very special guest.
I enjoyed every minute there. And if there were any problem before, they improved all 200%.
I still love that blue handmade cup which I had morning coffee from (I couldn't find it anywhere else. I would love to buy it. I wish I had the same...) anyway,
Thank you very much
I will come back for sure (or at least I plan to do so).
The 10 days at Gusde were perfect. The property is located in a quiet street, all the staff were very friendly. Every day we got a delicious breakfast. Gusde besrgte a scooter for us and he also organized our transport to the airport. Each time you could ask him and get immediate response and assistance. Since we were in the off season, the other houses were not occupied and we had the pool all to ourselves. We would stay there again anytime.
Endroit idéal pour visiter Ubud et le nord de Bali. L'endroit est propre. Le personnel est sympathique et attentionné. Je recommande cet hébergement pour tout le monde qui souhaite faire une visite culturelle à Bali.
Our stay at Gusde House was wonderful. Situated in Mas Village, about 5 minutes drive from central Ubud, it was perfect for us as we didn't wish to be right in the middle of things. If you don't mind a bit of a walk (about half an hour), it is possible to walk to Ubud from the villa. Our room was beautiful, the pool & gardens divine, and Gusde, Wayan and the rest of the team were most helpful and lovely people. Breakfast each morning was delicious.
We absolutely adored our stay at the Gusde villa. We had the most peaceful stay. I personally enjoyed my mornings reading on the breathtaking balcony in my room and morning swim, along with fresh fruit and coffee in the am. Oh and the banana pancakes! Yum! I really appreciated the wonderful accomadations from the kind hearts of the staff. The shuttle service into the main part of Ubud is also great. It's about a 5 min drive away. I would glady love to stay at the Gusde house again and again. Mahalo again Gusde and staff. You all offered us a lovely vacation.
