“Really nice and simple close to Uluwatu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

The Gong is very nice with clean, cute and simple rooms. Perfect for low budget. Uluwatu beach and Padang Padang beach are a few minute motorcycle drive away.also the famous Pura Uluwatu temple is around. The Gong has a pool. Shower has cold water only.

Only stayed one night, but nice guest house with pool. 10 minutes to beach and temple.

Good location for surfers, wifi is strong. Family is nice.

Only cold shower and fan, but I didn't mind.

Would stay there again, if you stay longer definitely rent a scooter! Very convenient.

Good little cheap hotel near the surf ideal for surfers. The grounds are immaculate and well looked after as is the pool area and pool. The only thing I would have to say is don't stay here if you are after anything above a 2 star hotel as it is not that at all its just cheap, good location and friendly staff. The rooms are a little run down and don't expect a hot shower as most cheap places in Bali don't have hot water. Near a few good restaurants and the one around the corner upstairs of the mini mart has a great view and they do an awesome pizza.

The Gong is close to the surf break at Ulu Watu, and a friendly, happy place to stay.Staff all excellent people. Fan was enough to cool room down. Food was good, also pool. Only stayed a few days as planned, but if you are surfing and staying longer, it would be ideal. Free WiFi worked well. Transport onwards organised by The Gong was reasonable rate and good driver.

the best place i could find in uluwatu!
the familie is so sweet and caring. stayed there for 10 days! when me and my friends left for a party the owner would come say goodbye and tell not to drink and drive! t
its a good place to travel solo because you meet a lot of nice people but is also a nice plays for families.
wifi works good swimming pool perfect and nice clean rooms! loved it! i will defently come back

Room Tip: the rooms in tha back (the old builing the call it) are bigger

We stayed at The Gong as a group of 8. It's is a very welcoming resort. It rained ALOT while we were there and the main reception/restaurant area was basically a flood area but the owners were ever patient and calm and couldn't do enough to help us. Our rooms were dry though. The rooms didn't have a/c but the breeze and fans kind of helped.
The pool area is excellent and the bar is very close. The owners will come out and ask what you need and happily bring it to you.
All in all it was the service that was the real winner. Good food and great drinks. I recommend the 'Suckling Pig'.
Hopefully next time we go the rooms will have a/c and perhaps a bit of a revamp.
Stay here if you have a low budget, don't care much about the rooms but expect lovely hosts and nice food.

We have stayed at the Gong for the past 11 nights and could not recommend it enough. Not only is it a fantastic place to stay it is also well within budget.

The room we stayed in had a fly net and simple fan but remained cool throughout the day and night. The room was cleaned daily and has been the first place we have stayed in a 2 month tour of Indo that felt well maintained. On my husbands birthday we came home to find flowers on our bed. We also had a view of the sea and watched some beautiful sunsets. The Gong sell Alcohol but you may also choose to visit one of the many local shops that also sell Bingtang and snacks.

The restaurant makes good fresh wholesome food. Their Papaya fruit juice is yummy, and the banana smoothies are great for a treat!!

The Gong is about a less than 5 min motorbike ride (which you can hire plus helmet from the Gong) from the famous Break Ulu Watu and within very easy distance to all the Bukit Penisula spots.

The best part of the Gong is the family. They are the kindest most gentle people we have met in Indonesia and are a pleasure to stay with.

We highly recommend the Gong and would definitely come back.
