In 1986 we had a dream…
Our dream was to create a
paradise within a paradise. Not only as a home for ourselves and our son
Daniel, but also a place to feel “at home” for our guests.
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.
Guci Guesthouses started
off as a small homestay, but now, more than thirty years later a lot has
changed. Ubud has grown and now has an amazing selection of shops and
restaurants. Also our small homestay has been modernized, but has not
lost its charms that attracted visitors from the beginning on.
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 Nyoman went to his grandfathers house in Denpasar and saw this beautiful jar, which was once used to store drinking water. The Balinese word for this jar is ‘Guci’ and when we started Guci Guesthouses we named it after grandfather’s jar.
