A good place to go to if you go to uluwatu it is walking distance to single fin (good party on Sunday) and has a nice pool rooms were clean and not expensive the Mexican food they served was really good. You can rent scooters and drive around uluwatu it has beautiful beaches value for the money was good

Dirtiest bathroom I've seen, didn't even throw away an old razor that was left in the shower. Insects on the floor/near the bed. Staff seemed careless and only sometimes friendly enough. No idea why it has such good reviews...Maybe surfers don't care (it IS close to Uluwatu Beach!)? Breakfast was good but relatively expensive, rest of food (lunch/dinner) terrible.

It could be so good, but it has seen better days. The staff are lovely as ever, but the rooms are not mossie proof. Slats in the windows (which don't lock) and no mossie nets. I have had dengue fever twice and am quite nervous about a third bout. Cockroaches crawling over us at night, not good. The place could... More

Don't hesitate to come here. There is a nice pool, it's close to the surfspot of Uluwatu, friendly people, clean rooms. If you come with at least 4 people defenatily ask for the penthouse room! It will get you the best sundown of the neighbourhood.

Incredibly warm hearted staff with beautiful souls. The rooms are clean, pool is refreshing, location is perfect (beaches and temple bery near), scooter rentals, and of course FUN surf lessons are a must do. Do not pass through Uluwatu without experiencing this wonderful space.

We chose this place based on the amazing reviews and the location close to the temple and the beaches. The room was super clean and we had a front balcony overlooking the pool and another one which was perfect for watching the sunset. Renting scooters is a must! We had a lot of fun riding to various beaches and the... More

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
