Guru Ratna Homestay
Ranked #5 of 22 Specialty Lodging in Munduk
Reviewed July 24, 2013

There are many places to stay in Munduk, but if you book ahead, you could find better than Guru Ratna (it is very busy in July, so book a place early!). It's a nice looking place, but the breakfast is skimpy and there aren't very comfortable places to hang out. You can climb up to the roof over the restaurant for nice views for instance, but there's barely any seating. The service is okay, but not great. They made us pay for our room when we arrived, I'm guessing because they were afraid we'd leave after one night! (We stayed three nights.) Try Puri Lumbung Cottages instead - they looked terrific!

We only stayed one night in Guru Ratna to enjoy the region of Munduk before heading north of the island. The homestay is very well located on the main road and you can enjoy the view on the mountains from your room or the restaurant. The room was clean and the staff smiling and helpful. Last but not least : excellent quality for the price we paid!

We stayed for 3 nights at Guru Ratna just recently and can heartily recommend it to those traveling to Munduk. The room was elegant, bathroom capacious, water very hot, and the staff superb in their efforts to keep the place clean and dry (despite rather persistent precipitation). Everyone there was quite helpful in arranging guided tours to through the surrounding villages and giving great directions on easier walks that we did without a guide. The location is superb for exploring the north central highlands. And the price was very reasonable. Two thumbs up!

We stayed here 2 nights after leaving Pemuteran. Located right on the main road in town this place has a beautiful setting overlooking the area. We had a very comfortable room with a queen size bed and a single bed for our daughter. The place was clean and the bathroom was updated. Hot water shower was a plus since this area can get cool at night and there was at least one rain shower a day. The room rate included a nice breakfast in their restaurant. The staff is very nice and helped us arrange a guide for a 4hour trek in the surrounding villages and rice paddies. Water fall #2 does not require a guide since it is right off the main road. The other one is a little trickier and we were happy to have a guide. Wi-Fi was not the best and the noise from the road and all the motorcycles can take away a bit from the experience, but I was very glad to have spent time in this area. The drive to Ubud is about 2 ½ hours in a private car.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the back. There will be less road noise

At the moment we are sitting in the restaurant overlooking the stunning view. Have just eaten a delicious meal of spiced grilled pork, the staff cooked up a special dish of tempe for my vegetarian husband, also delicious. The rooms are colourful, with comfy beds, spotless and cleaned daily. It was raining today so we did a weaving class and made offerings for the Temple. Lovely people and just so nice here.

Spacious rooms and hot water. No AC, but it's not necessary.

Breakfast with the view was really nice. Staff was able to arrange us trekking guide, althoug the day was some kind of special ceremony day when all the villagers went to Lovina to celebrate.

Food was generally exellent.
