I struggled with the decision of giving the Komaneka at Rasa Sayang 4 or 5. So I will start with the couple of brief negatives first during our 4 day stay. The wireless internet throughout the hotel was almost unusable due to its slow speeds. We were informed that it was having maintenance issues (which is fair enough) though it stayed broken our whole trip. This also meant that the Apple TV system installed in each room with hundreds of preloaded movies did not work either.
Asides from these, everything else we experienced was fantastic.
The staff were extremely friendly and thoughtful, and let you know that no request was beyond their attempts.
The rooms were huge, beautifully appointed. The air-conditioning worked perfectly. The bathroom was a standout with a huge two person bathtub. When we checked into our room there was a floral petal arrangement on the bed which was nice. We decided to throw the petals into the empty bath to have a bath with them later. We didn't get around to it, so expected that housekeeping might clean them out. Instead when we arrived back the petals were yet again beautifully arranged, but this time in the tub.
The swimming pool area was small, but just right for a small place the size of Rasa Sayang. The view overlooked rainforrest and a small creek, with another resort also visible in the back ground.
The location of the hotel was perfect, smack bang in the middle of town. About 5 minutes walk either direction to the markets or to Monkey forrest.
The Komaneka Resorts also offer free transfers in and aorund all of Ubuds attractions (complimentary). This service was great!
Perhaps the greatest part of the stay was the delicious and wonderful food provided at both breakfast and when we chose to eat their for Lunch or Dinner. Clearly all cooked fresh to order, the indonesian options were a particular standout. It was so good we in fact wished we ate there more often rather than trying to discover other places in town.
The hotel also provides a complimentary afternoon tea with snacks of all kinds of varieties at 3:30.
Overall I would definately recommend this hotel if you want to be in the centre of town, and want somewhere that feels like as soon as you are behind the gates that you are in the middle of the rainforrest. Wonderful staff, food, rooms.
The other great option is that you can use any or all of the other Komaneka resorts scattered around Ubud. We went to the Bisma resort a couple of times because its pool, restaurant are out of this world! And it also has a small gym studio. The Bisma is only about 10 minutes walk away down a rocky path inaccessible to cars, but it would also be worth a look at.
