I've been traveling to Bali since 1989 and The GONG has become my home away from home. There is no other place I would rather stay while in Bali. The GONG is minutes away from the beautiful beaches of Uluwatu & 10 minutes away from the famous Padang Padang Beach. You want to be minutes away from world class waves... More

This is an excellent hotel for the price. From outside, it's beautiful. Nice pool, palm trees, nice architecture. Rooms are simple and there is no AC but it's worth the price. We stayed during Nyepi Day, and the kind (but a bit cold) staff gave us two free meals. It's 10 min scooter from beaches, temple, and restaurant.

The Gong Restaurant is my favourite place to eat breakfast in Bali. Good service and good price comparing to other restaurants I tried in south Bali. Good value for money. You won't regret if you get the burritos, mixed fruit porridge and balinese coffee! :-) If you are up for a healthy breakfast head down!

After doing sufficient research and reading reviews below we were expecting great things from this hotel yet were left wanting. The room first seemed perfect with a great sea view, however we quickly found an ant infestation, cockroaches and a hole in our bathroom roof. The rooms seemed to get cleaned each day yet towels were never recycled, not entirely... More

Very genuinely friendly and helpful staff who give a personable service. Plenty of motorbikes available to rent. I would seriously only stay here if you are going to rent one or have a car. I think the room price was high in comparison with what you were getting due to location. The windows would not close and there were pellets... More

We had the best time staying in this hotel. Got the room with a lovely sea view, everything was clean and pretty, oh and a pool area is great. Hotel is located in perfect place, 3 min drive to Uluwatu beach and 5 min drive to Padang Padang. Definitely coming back here 🍃

Stayed at the Gong with a friend in February 2014. The people who work there are lovely and make you feel right at home. One of the girls who worked there took us to the temple and met us after which was really kind. The food was also good and reasonably priced. Easy to rent scooters and a short ride... More

I have stayed several times at The Gong, as I liked how close it is from Uluwatu. The girls working there are very friendly, smiling and make you feel like part of the family, with kids around and the tiny dog. The quality of the rooms is quite random though. The first and 2nd times I stayed there, the room... More

The Gong was a great place to stay. Our booking had been mixed up but they did make a plan for us. I've stayed in places with better service but the service wasn't bad at all. There were no travel brochures, tours or even a map of Uluwatu / Bali which was quite disappointing. The owner didn't really help us... More

We didn't use their accommodation but did eat in the cafe out front. A good variety menu and very friendly service. Even sell jaffles which takes me back to the 70s. The menu is affordable. It's not fine dining but the provide a very pleasant place to eat.
