Guci Guesthouses
Pengosekan - Ubud - Bali
" A place to feel " at home "

Selamat datang. Welcome to Guci Guesthouses Bali. We are happy you found your way to our website. 

First, let us introduce ourselves. We are Nyoman, a Balinese man and Ulli, my wife of German origin. In 1986 we had a dream... and our dream was to create a paradise within a paradise. Not only a home for ourselves and our unborn son Daniel, but also a place to feel "at home" for our guests who were soon to arrive.

As a location for our paradise we choose Pengosekan, a small community a short walking distance from Ubud. We are close enough to shops and restaurants to fulfill all your needs, but located just off the center so you can enjoy the peace and quietness.

Ubud is ideally placed for day trips to numerous places of interest both locally and slightly further away, and it is easy to arrange various forms of transport. In Ubud you can rent pushbikes, motorbikes and cars for independent travel. You may prefer to get a car with driver, sign up with one of the many organized tours which are offered in Ubud, or explore the area on foot. All is possible, and you'll soon find that Bali is the perfect island to spend a couple of weeks or more...    


Guci Guesthouses started off as a small homestay, but now, more than twenty years later a lot has changed. From the outside Ubud has grown and you'll find many more shops and restaurants while you slowly stroll towards the center. Even here at Guci Guesthouses, returning visitors will also find many changes. The three guest bungalows have been totally rebuilt and now boast electricity and warm water. Also two houses have been built in the garden, as well as an art studio, please feel free to give them a visit. Lately we have noticed that lately many of our guests bring their laptop, tablet or smartphone during their travels. Therefore we are pleased to inform you that free WIFI is now available within Guci Guesthouses for all our guests who wish to use it so you can surf the internet or stay in contact with family and friends from the comfort of your own bungalow or house.

Many guests have enquired to the origin of the name of Guci Guesthouses. This goes back a long time, even long before we started dreaming about our little paradise. One day I went to my grandfathers house in Denpasar and saw this beautiful jar, which was once used to store drinking water. I fell in love with this jar and asked my grandfather whether he would be willing to part with it and he agreed. The Balinese word for this jar is ‘Guci’ and when we started Guci Guesthouses we named it after my grandfather’s jar. Even today you will still be able to find it in our garden, next to a small temple. If interested we’ll be more than happy to show you this piece of family history.



Once you follow the path from the street you will find our reception and get a glimpse of the lush garden. If we're not around please ring the bell and we will come to welcome you. Sit down, relax and make yourself comfortable.




While waiting for us you may meet one of our friendly long term staff, Wayan, Ketut and Desak, who not only keep Guci Guesthouses spotlessly clean but will also prepare and serve your breakfast in the morning.




We strongly believe a day on the island of Gods has to start with a treat, a good breakfast accompanied by tea or coffee. Every morning between 8.00 and 11.00 we serve a two course breakfast. To start freshly selected tropical fruits wet your appetite for the main course, which varies daily. Egg and vegetable jaffle, french toast (Balinese style) and pisang goreng (fried banana) are just some of the main breakfast courses we serve. Every day it'll be a surprise what Wayan, Ketut or Desak will serve you. Of course the breakfast would not be complete without a floral decoration which comes straight out of our own garden, yes the one that you will be surrounded with whilst enjoying your breakfast. Selamat pagi, hope you'll have a nice day on Bali! 



But for now from the comfort of your home, explore the Guci Guesthouses website to learn more about us. If you require more information, or would like to make a booking, please feel free to contact us. Once you're in Bali it would be wonderful to have you with us so we can share our dream with you. We are looking forward to meeting you.


Sincerely yours,

Nyoman, Ulli and Daniel.
