“Impeccable Service! LOVED IT!!”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

We had originally booked the Deluxe Room, however after checking in they also gave us the option of staying at their sister Komaneka hotel, Rasa Sayang, just a min's walk down the road. They were doing maintenance works at Monkey Forest, so thus they were looking after guests to offer Rasa Sayang. After viewing both rooms, we preferred the boutique-ness of the green grounds and outdoor-like wet bathroom of the Monkey Forest hotel. My partner also cheekily asked if we could upgrade to a villa!

So upon our return after lunch to check-in to our room, they had organised an upgrade! The pool villa suite was absolutely gorgeous, romantic, spacious, luxurious, private and so so honeymoon like!

The service at Komaneka is second-to-none. Usually the Balinese are already quite accommodating people, however, we grew very fond of a few of the service personnel there. We were brought our afternoon tea twice, after requesting for it (outside of the afternoon tea service hours). They knew when we returned, and within 5 mins of arrival, the doorbell sounded and our food delivered complimentary. Also, every we walked past the lobby to our daily scooter adventures, the staff would willingly offer us two small bottles of water to take with us. There's many more instances, but we felt so very taken care of, smiles all the way, and with these hotel staff, I was eager to tip (ie they didn't linger around for more). I was blown away, and my partner and I said we'll definitely return to another Komenaka (either Bisme or Tagalalang) for our honeymoon.

Worth every minute of our stay! LOVED IT!!

We initially wanted to stay at a place with a private pool for our two day trip to Ubud. So we found Komaneka at Monkey Forest and decided to make a reservation after seeing some pictures posted by other travellers.

We knew it is a beautiful place to stay but didn't realise its full extent until we checked in. When we were escorted to the private pool at the back of our room, the absolutely stunning view had us wow-ed a million times!! The pool is directly facing a forest and overlooking a creek. You could get a lot resort with private pool, but a pool surrounded by a forest??

But the good thing is not just the room settings. The service, the location and even the communal garden area are all satisfactorily fantastic. We actually arrived at the resort one hour before check-in time and after we went out for a stroll around the town, our luggage had all been kindly placed in the room. It was this personal touch that has won our decision of going going back some time sooner in the future.

A friend and I recently stayed at 2 of the Komaneka properties in Ubud and found them to be in a great location and to offer great service. Firstly the staff were all so friendly, professional and helpful. The rooms were very clean, of a very modern high quality standard with nice luxurious touches (best bath ever!) and the hotel food was great as was the spa service and treatments. The location is really central, close to great nearby restaurants in easy walking distance. The pool at each property and gardens were amazing with beautiful views. Would definitely stay again, I can't think of a single fault. The welcome present was a very nice touch, wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy even more of the property! A special thanks to our driver from Ubud back to Denpaser who couldn't have been better!!

Room Tip: The villas with private pools are worth it!

We stayed in one of the villas for 2 nights during a recent trip to Ubud. The hotel is located in the centre of the main road of Ubud, so excellent location. The villa was beautiful - very luxurious. The staff were fantastic. We felt truly pampered - especially when they came & turned down our bed each night & put out some complimentary PJs & slippers! The staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable & enjoyable. We also had a couple of massages in the spa located at the hotel - the sweedish massage was divine. The stay was a lovely way to finish off a 9 night stay in Ubud. All in all, we'd definitely go back next time we visit Bali.

We chose Komaneka at Monkey Forest for the second week of our honeymoon, and so glad we did! The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms are furnished to a high standard with gorgeous bed and romantic bath refreshed with fresh petals every day if you want to put them in your bath. The location and the staff really set this hotel apart, being right in the heart of the action and close to some great bars and restaurants (Cinta Bar and Grill, turn left out of the hotel for Mojito happy hour 4-7, mango mojitos great! 3 Monkeys lovely food, Laughing Buddha good for cocktails), but as soon as you step back from the road and into the hotel it is like entering an oasis of calm. A few steps back from the reception and you get to the pool, which is so sheltered and cool, it was very welcome after the heat of the busy streets.

We stayed in a pool villa, and the plunge pool was great for cooling off. The welcome from the staff, the fantastic spa treatments, we got a free Balinese massage (which is intense!) and they also gave us a free dinner one night to celebrate our marriage which was delicious. It's a shame the restaurant doesn't get more custom as the food is lovely but as there is so much choice on the doorstep it was often quiet in the evenings.

We also spent an evening at the sister hotel in Bisma, which was a buffet evening with Balinese dance and very enjoyable, free shuttle was convenient.

Can't say enough good things about the hotel, and not to spoil it for anyone, but those who have stayed there will know that the little touches in the room every night make it even more special.

I chose Komaneka at Monkey Forest after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and I am very glad I did.

The immaculate resort is run by a highly competent team who were very professional yet genuinely, naturally friendly. They were also extremely attentive yet somehow remained totally unobtrusive. The staff here really care about their guests and their experience and gladly did everything they could to ensure my partner and I were able to let go, unwind, relax and focus on enjoying our holiday.

The resort itself was stunning. I really liked that it has had time to become established, with lovely gardens and walkways. We stayed in two of the pool villas (we wanted to try a couple of different views which the staff were more than happy to accommodate) and they were both breathtakingly beautiful and extremely well laid out and set-up.

I wanted to be in the centre of Ubud, which this hotel is, so was prepared to sacrifice total peace and quiet to have the benefit of being so close to the culture and action however the resort was so well laid out (and it backs on to a river valley) that, once in the resort, we could have been a million miles away from anything.

I'm trying to think of some negatives to balance my review but...I can't!

I could go on and on about this wonderful place but the other positive reviews on here speak volumes for the resorts strengths and I would recommend the Komaneka at Monkey Forest to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in the cultural heart of Bali at a very highly regarded (by other tourists and the locals) resort.
