Gusde House & Villa
Ranked #225 of 585 Speciality Lodging in Ubud
Reviewed 8 November 2012

Our stay was wonderful. It is just outside of Ubud though so most taxi drivers do not know the hotel. Our driver from the airport had a very difficult time finding it, though he managed. Upon arriving, we were disappointed since on here it says "bathtub, refrigerator, microwave, kitchenette, coffee/tea maker, fan". None of those were in the room. Since we arrived late at night, the man at the gate did not speak much english and did not know what we were asking. We ended up just going to bed and said we would deal with it in the morning. The next day, we met Gusde who is the owner. We then realized that the whole little villa was ours - upstairs and downstairs, with the kitchenette area. We did not have a fridge, but they had one there by the time we returned later in the afternoon. We also did not have a microwave, but I am pretty sure they would have got us one if we needed one (which we did not!)
The free shuttle to downtown Ubud was great and we were able to take it there and back. The following day, the staff was nice enough to drive us to Elephant Cave and again, pick us up at no additional cost.
The breakfast was the best. Each day we got a LOT of food. Always had a huge plate of fresh fruit, along with fresh juice, coffee and/or tea. Then you would also have either a western breakfast or the Balinese breakfast, which we definitely preferred since it was different and delicious! The chef was the nicest man!
The room was huge and clean with a big balcony overlooking the rice field. Bathroom was also large with a rain shower. Bedroom had mosquito net and a locking closet with huge high ceilings. The downstairs area had a kitchen table and chairs, kitchenette area, wooden couch with cushions and the fridge. Pool was private but we were told we could use it since the villa was unoccupied. Wifi worked well for our whole stay, as did the hot water.
We had a great stay here and would definitely go back if we were to visit the Ubud area again.

I don't know where to start cause there is just so much thing I would like to say about our wonderful experience at the Gusde House & Villa in Ubud.

First, the villa was very beautiful and clean. The bed was very comfy and huge. It is located 5 minutes outside of Ubud in the rice fields so the view from the villa is amazing and it is very quiet. The free breakfast were just delicious. There is also a free shuttle to go in town so it is the best way to enjoy the backcountry and the life in the center of the city.

Second, the host and his wife were just amazing, and so were all the staff. They helped us with so many things and gave us a lot of helpful advices. They also helped us to book a motorcycle at a very good price. Through them and with them, we had the chance to discover the amazing Balinese culture.

We loved that place and we will go back anytime for sure.

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing but the villa with the private pool is just perfect!

Gusde was present to greet us on arrival which was a nice touch. As there was no one else we got upgraded to the family villa. This is the only villa with a pool. The remaining villas are of a different design with a lounge to hang out on the ground floor. The family villa has a bale instead. Be sure as to your selection of villa.

The villa is about 10 minutes by car south of Hanoman Street and the villa does provide free shuttle back and forth to town. This is necessary as there are no restaurants nor shops near the villa. Walking it is a possibility but only for the fit and hardy - there's a steep slope to overcome. Not good if you have elderly folk with you.

For the price it was a bargain and if you're out and about then it makes more sense as its just a bed for the night. And a comfortable one at that too. But if you choose to stay make sure you have a good book to read or good company as there's little else to do.
