Komaneka at Rasa Sayang
Ranked #33 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We stayed at Komaneka Rasa Sayang out last night in Bali. The rooms are very nice and the staff is very helpful. We enjoyed our time at Komaneka Tanggayuda more as we felt the property was more impressive. However, Rasa Sayang is in the heart of Ubud so if you are looking to be in the middle of everything this is a perfect hotel. The food is very good- Indonesian and Western food options. Breakfast is especially good. The pool area is very nice and since it is in the back of the hotel it was quiet.

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.

Komaneka Rasa Sayang may be small, and some facilities are small too (small swimming pool, small cafe). The buildings next door are do not provide the nicest view or ambiance either (they're just regular houses and another hotel).

But what the hotel lacks in size and sophistication, it more than makes up for both with its extremely pleasant services & friendly staff.

It is also located in Ubud's most active road, so it's easy to reach all of Ubud's main attractions from here.

Room Tip: The upper floors have stunning view of the Ubud area

The hotel is very central which is convenient to the monkey forest, restaurants and shopping but means that you are stuck in traffic a lot of the time and in the very busy monkey forest road. I was travelling with teenagers, so it was worth forgoing the views at the hotels slightly out of town for the convenience of being central. The hotel rooms are beautiful and the view not bad considering where you are. The reception staff are delightful and often have a car service available. The restaurant staff are also fantastic and the breakfasts great. I would be happy to stay again but maybe split the time with another site out of town. You can use the pool at the Komaneka's other site in Bisma St. It is a beautiful pool in a beautiful setting but there is some construction going on. It didn't disturb us when we went there. I have 2 minor complaints. The towels were quite thin and the airconditioning not too effective. They give you lovely night shirts to sleep in but most nights it was too warm to use them. The site next door has been demolished and the building debris is still there. I do not know when construction is due to start there, but it would be worth knowing if you intended staying there.

From the moment we pulled up to this hotel, it was fantastic. The staff was extremely helpful and welcomed us to Ubud. The restaurant at the hotel is delicious - we had breakfast and dinner there. The coffee is out of this world! The hotel is close to all the attractions in Ubud and offers you a jungle oasis of relaxation at the pool. We loved hanging in the infinity pool after a day of sightseeing and looking into the jungle. We had an amazing driver that was able to pick us up and drive us to the hotel (300 rupiah) and we also arranged a day of sightseeing (500 rupiah) with him for an incredible price. His name is Gung Pong and his email address is gung.pong@yahoo.com. He really helped make the experience a combination of seeing the sites, relaxing and getting useful information about Ubud and surrounding areas of Bali.

Our stay was absolutely worthwhile and this is a recommendable hotel. There are a few things however which we experienced as over the top. Staff is overly friendly actually up to a point of being intrusive in conversation with non-relating topics really. We, at times, did experience the friendliness a bit disturbing. It is of course totally harmless; but nevertheless we prefer service which is less noticeable but yet there. There is this subtle difference in how service can be provided.
Asking for refills when glasses are still half full is not really what is needed either.

And then there is this nowhere mentioned construction site next door; the complete building was levelled to ground and certainly there will be something starting next door which can be causing construction noise levels. It did not make the view from floor 3 any better; not from the rooms but walkways only. It is just that we do not enjoy those views; other than that there was no disturbance.

The rooms are good size and do show a lay-out with open bathroom; the large sliding doors to a huge balcony are a treat. There is nothing to wish for in these rooms; comfortable but not overly luxurious.

The hotel location is really good for exploring Ubud; plenty of nice restaurants and shops.

Apart from the above mentioned the hotel offers a very nice stay.

We stayed here for the final 3 nights of our honeymoon and it was amazing! We'd come from Gili Meno on a slightly bumpy boat journey and were in need of some TLC which is exactly what we got from Komaneka!

As soon as you pull into the driveway you are instantly relaxed and happy. The location is brilliant - just off Monkey Forest Road, so really close to the action - and we couldn't have asked for more on our honeymoon.

When we arrived we had petals in the bath, on the bed and a lovely cake arrived for us as well as lots of pampering from the excellent staff. This did not stop throughout our stay and we were blown away by the friendliness of everyone who worked here.

We went to the Monkey Forest which was a 5 minute walk away and great fun! The brilliant hotel reception also organised a trip to the Elephant Sanctuary and White Water Rafting. Both were fantastic and definitely recommended.

Cafe Lotus was a nice spot for tea and a snack. Also, Indus is a fantastic restaurant with breathtaking views (so go before it's dark and enjoy a cocktail in happy hour!) and delicious food.

The hotel itself has a fantastic and huge selection of food on offer which we enjoyed too. We only wish we had more time in Ubud as it was a trip of a lifetime.

Thank you to everyone at the hotel for making our stay so memorable!

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room which was massive and very nice
