“Definitely going back here! Top Class Hotel with the best staff!”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

Stayed here for 4 nights in January with 10 and 15 year old daughters. This is the most relaxing, quiet, beautiful hotel i have ever stayed in. The staff are simply sensational and are always available for any request. The food is to die for and whether eaten in the restaurant, by the pool or on your balcony, it is simply the best!
The rooms are very spacious and private and the decor is charming. The bathrooms are big with a shower that makes you feel like you are standing in the rain, and a walk in bath which is just divine.
The inifinity pool is beautiful and very inviting.
The massage and spa at this hotel are very relaxing and private. The view from the upstairs of the building is over working rice fields with birds, butterflies and dragon flies in abundance.
My daugther spent a lot of time catching frogs and taking pictures of the perfectly manicured gardens. There were some complimentary activities my daughters could particpate in too.
Hotel is just across the road from the famous Warung Cafe where Julia Roberts dined. Food there was great and very reasonably priced.
Definitely coming back here but next time will be with my hubby.........

We not were expecting this. This property with its friendly and remarkably kind and attentive staff made our visit to Ubud a trip to remember. Mika and his staff were amazing. They could not have been more hospitable and attentive. The room (103) with its private sitting area, private pool, and view of the jungle, was amazing. The attention to detail and cleanliness was impressive. We cannot recall ever (and we travel world wide - leaving for SE Asia this weekend) being so pleasantly surprised with our accommodations and service. Thanks again, Mika. Looking forward to our return.

Room Tip: Get 103 if you can.

We stayed three nights at Komaneka at Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali Indonesia last February. We traveled for 36 days in Bali and Australia and this was the finest hotel that we have stayed at ever. We have traveled to all seven continents and this is still the finest hotel we have stayed at. The other Komanekas are wonderful but this one has the perfect location in downtown Ubud---the cultural capital of Bali. The staff are amazing (about 4 to i guest I think) and the woman who built it is a designer/architect/art collector. There is not a thing out of place and the staff make a show out of virtually everything they do and they are all very beautiful people. They went out of their way to help us before before our flight out and even let us shower in the spa just before we left. This is the experience of a lifetime----do not pass it by.

My partner and I just returned from a stay at the Komaneka at Monkey Forest and two things in particular make this hotel stand out for us. First, the gallery in the lobby is outstanding -- displaying high-quality art that is of a similar quality to what you would find in other resort destinations like Santa Fe, Provincetown, etc. We purchased an outstanding piece by a local artist and he actually came to visit and provide us with a personalized copy of the program (with a caricature included that was a bonus!). Shipping back to the States was handled very professionally and the piece arrived completely intact via DHL.

Second, the property is outstanding value for its location, atmosphere (described in great detail by other reviewers), and attention to detail by its staff. Without exception, the staff was friendly, but efficient and professional. Unlike other more expensive resorts outside Ubud, one of which we dined at and had a superb meal, the Komaneka is right in the middle of Ubud, which was perfect for us, because as New Yorkers, we enjoy just leaving the property and wandering. One day the rain came down in buckets and it was nice just to run back to the hotel instead of having to scramble for a taxi or wait for the hotel car.

We loved this property....!

My husband and I are just finishing up our 3 night stay at Komaneka Monkey Forest and we very much enjoyed ourselves. Despite being located right in the middle of a busy street, the grounds are set back and provide peace and quiet as if you were away from it all. We stayed in pool villa #105 which was lovely. Bed was very comfy and bathroom was very large with separate shower and sunken tub. The villa looks out over rice paddies which was very nice but made me worry about excessive mosquitos. Just wear some insect repellent and you will be fine. Breakfast provided was adequate and overall the restaurant food was decent and well priced. My one gripe about the location of the pool villas and their proximity to the rice paddies is that you will often have farmers workin in the paddies literally 4 feet from your door. I know I'm just being an untrusting New Yorker but we found that a little alarming while sunbathing outside.

The shining light of this hotel is hands down the wonderful staff!! Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful and always had a smile for us. The sweet welcome drink on arrival, afternoon tea and turn down service in the evening was great as well. I did not experience for myself but my husband seemed to very much enjoy his massage at the spa which is also well priced. We would recommend this hotel to others looking for a quiet place that's still very close to the center of Ubud.

Right in the thick of busy Mnkey Forest Road, a luxury place with great service.
Perhaps a little expensive lfor Bali standards but great location.
