A hidden jungle retreat - this is the real Bali

Reviewed August 11, 2009

I stayed at Gubah Bali Villas for 3 weeks whilst volunteering in a nearby children's home with a friend. We got to know the 4 members of staff here very well and became one of the family! The hotel is situated down a (very bumpy) lane, right at the heart of a very typical Balinese village. The rooms are very spacious and are kept to an extremely high standard. The breakfast area is lovely and Ketut will make you anything you want! The pool is absolutely gorgeous and you can swim whilst looking into the jungle - a really amazing experience. The hotel provides a driver to take you to Ubud as it is about 15 mins away by car (the bumpy road takes up most of this time). I would definitely recommend staying here if you want to get out of the busy tourist route for a few days.
