I will start with the golf course as this describes the accommodation as well!

The resort golf clubhouse and organization was very good and we felt looked after from the moment we arrived but once on the course I got the feeling it wasn't the most important part of the complex. The course, aesthetically beautiful but it lacked the TLC which would make it into a great course. Greens were a little rough, fairways were patchy and the tees slopey and rough so you just felt let down.
This pretty much described the rooms as well, Large and spacious looked great from the outside but when through the door it all just seemed to have been unloved!

If I go back to Bogor I doubt I would play these courses again nor stay at the premises as there are better in the surrounding areas. Sorry...but give the place a little more TLC Gunung Geulis

Great place for family fun weekend. Golf course and views are really good. Rooms are big and clean. Children have a very good play area and mountain bikes while you are playing golf. Food is all local and not very good.y

Gunung Geulis is a Sunda words, means Beautiful Mountain, this is how the local peoples describe about this place. Gunung Geulis Golf Course located at the highest level of the mountain, from here we could see the whole city of Bogor, looks green in the day but bright and glittering at night. I came here with other golfers and we stayed at The Gunung Geulis Cottage type Eagle with 3 bedrooms. All the arrangement for golf and cottage reservation, i did direct to the management of Gunung Geulis via email. The price was very reasonable, i paid IDR361,000 per person for one round 18 holes golf and IDR 1,512,500 for the cottage. The Gunung Geulis has 38 luxury cottages with 77 rooms, located in one area seperately from the golf club, the place quite isolated surrounded by forest at the back side and golf course at the front side. At night the cottages area were very bright with light all over the place. I like this place very much, this is my second time stay here, i love the weather mild, windy, quite, and the scenery very soothing and the staff very friendly and accomodating. The cottage interior looks simple, nothing extraordinary, they have a spacious lounge with sofa, dining table, tv , refrigerator, hot & cold water dispensor. The lounge was quite stuffy because of no aircon and fan . All bedrooms aircon and with attached bathroom. For the breakfast, something special here that the staff served us at our cottage. After breakfast i called the front office for transport to the golf club. All of us transfered to the golf club about 1 km away from cottage area. The golf club looks grande, luxurious, big, spacious, well decorated, and very clean. I went straight to the golf registration counter located in the Pro Shop at top level, restaurant at middle level and the changing room at ground floor. The golf course looks beautiful, well maintained but very challenging. Gunung Geulis Golf Club has 2 golf course, they name it as East and West, my group played at East Course and at the same time they had tournament at West course. The golf course had many types of difficulties, the most challenging was hole no 1, when the tee box at the higherst level but the fairway in the valley and the green cannot be seen from the fairway, most of the hole with very narrow and sloppy fairways. My group were enjoyed with their game even though they lost about 4-6 balls. Eventhough my group was enjoyed with the game but very frustrated with their performance and scores, so they decided to play another round of golf paid IDR 275,000 per person (half price from the published rate). Even though they were very tired but managed to finished the game at 17.35pm, almost dark. They were happy because their performance better than the first round and not even one ball lost.

My husband played at this course during our recent visit to Bogor and rated it highly. Situated high up in the hills surrounding Bogor where the weather is cooler, the scenery beautiful and driving the winding road there you witness local Indonesian life. The 18 hole course itself is very challenging with beautiful greens and scenic outlooks from most of the holes. Golf carts are a necessity due to the hilly nature of the course and each golfer has his own caddy. The club house is enormous and serves lights meals and plenty of beer!

The Gunung Geulis Club has two 18 hole courses - the East Course (newer) and the West Course. Both were designed by the same golf course designer as the better known Jagorawi where many Indonesian tournament have been held. Located at a higher elevation than Bogor, there are interesting views of the lowlands from several vantage points on the course.

Playing off the blues means good accuracy over some of the fairways which tend to narrow to present greater challenges. The scenery is spectacular with rippling streams running by the fairways lending a charm to the ambience.

One is transported to the carts via a modified golf cart which holds 12 including 4 golf bags. The caddies are very knowledgeable especially around the greens and with the pleasant weather, a good golf outing was had by one and all, so much so that we're returning there tomorrow to play the other course!
