“A gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

There're so many things about this place that make it so special & wonderful - from the breathtaking view of green rice paddies & jungle that greet you on arrival, to the wonderful hospitality of the people at Komaneka, to the luxurious comfort of the rooms. This is a place where you can relax & feel away from it all, yet still enjoy the convenience of being walking distance from Ubud town centre. Just relaxing on the grounds of Komaneka is heaven itself - we stayed in the Bisma Suite room, from which we could hear the river from our balcony & the birds in the morning, & look out to ricefields & jungle. Everywhere you walk, you are surrounded by greenery.
We also held our wedding there, and the Komaneka team was simply marvellous & professional in helping it go smoothly. I love the people at Komaneka - all the staff are genuinely warm & friendly, and demonstrate the best of Balinese hospitality. They are what gives Komaneka its soul, and makes it so special. We're definitely coming back here again.

This was absolutely the best place we have EVER stayed. The one bedroom villa was gorgeous with amazing views over the forest. The thoughtful things that they do really make it such a special stay, the little gifts, bedtime stories, flowers, pyjamas... every moment we found ourselves saying 'Wow'!
We finished our honeymoon at Komaneka and we were so sad to leave. We will definitely be back.

We stayed at this hotel as the second part of our honeymoon, and stayed in a Bisma suite. The room was huge, with a fantastic balcony overlooking the paddy fields. Almost as soon as we arrived we were given a honeymoon cake as a welcome gift, and later in the stay we were also given a free dinner in the hotel restaurant which was amazing! The room was set up every evening with the same decorations of the bed, rose petals arranged into a love heart! The hotel staff were very polite and couldn't do enough for us, there seamed to know all the guests by name. You are able to order room service breakfast a no extra charge which meant we could eat on the balcony over looking the paddy fields. The food and drinks are all good, a selection of Indonesian and western options, a great pizza oven by the pool. Great cocktails too ;-)
Highly recommend a stay here, you are a little out of Ubud town centre but a free hotel shuttle service takes you wherever you want to go, it has a set route and timetable but we found the tailor this to guests. There was a mixture of couples, friends and family's so a good all around hotel.
On departure were also given dressing gowns with our names embroidered on and a traditional scarf, which we were touched to receive. We were definitely made to feel special during our stay.

We stayed at the Komaneka Bisma mid October for our wedding anniversary. Our accommodation was a 1 bedroom pool villa which was stunning - beautiful room overlooking rice paddies and banana trees, infinity pool, deep bath with beautiful products. Felt like we were on our Honeymoon not celebrating 29 years of marriage. Breakfast was ala carte but a good variety of options including Indonesian and Balinese. One night we organised for a Exotic Seafood BBQ in our villa - this was one of many options offered to the guests. For 130US per couple this was incredible. From mid afternoon an army of staff created an idyllic scene for us in our villa. Candles in the pool and around the outdoor area, frangipani leaves scattered, taped music. It was too beautiful for words and that was before we ate. Oh my God - the BBQ was of such a grandious scale, so much food and then there was a bottle of wine and dessert and the individed attention of our own chef and attendant. DO THIS!!! One of our most memorable meals and not something easily done in Australia. When we go back we will also look at some of the other alternatives offered. We also enjoyed dinner at the restaurant which was beautiful. Aside from this had many meals at the Melting Wok Warung which was a bit of a fave of ours. Bridges Bali is very pricey but the location and the food were wondrous. The beauty salon is so beautiful and you have treatments listening to the roar of the river, just great - ofcourse it is cheaper to go for a walk and get a $10 massage but the Komaneka's massages are in keeping with Aussie prices but the value and ambiance wins hands down. An alternative away from the resort but a little pricier than the smaller massage places is Sang Spa www.sangspaubud.com which offered a very good 4 hands message. Easy to walk into Ubud from Komaneka but wouldn't do so at night - mostly because of the pot holes and limited lighting but also being safety conscious! Anyway there is a shuttle to and from the Komaneka every hour. Mind you for $3 you can get a cab back though some will try and get $10 off you for this three minute trip. The staff at Komaneka Bisma from reception, to waiters, room service, the beauty salon and the gardeners were always so beautiful and welcoming. A real credit to Komaneka Bisma is their staff - hope they are paid well as they certainly worked very hard, always with a smile on their faces.
I also visited Ketut Liyer (the spiritual leader mentioned in the book Eat, Pray, Love) which can be organised by the Komaneka. Remember water and a fan as I waited nearly 2 hours but then the couple after me waited 5 minutes so its all on how many are waiting. You are sitting cross legged on his verandah and it is very hot. He is special with the cheekiest smile. I think I paid $30 and felt privileged to have met Ketut.
All in all can't wait to return to the Komaneka Bisma and Ubud :-)

This was our second stay in this hotel and we're already planning to go back. The staff is very welcoming and well trained, nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. The setting of the resort is simply stunning, with the swimming pool next to the forest and rice paddies – the perfect place to unwind and relax. Rooms are spacious, equipped with many little personal details, a nice large terrace with dining table and sun loungers and again the beautiful view on to the rice paddies and forest. The only thing I would suggest is to provide duvets for the beds, but we will be back soon and thanks to the Komaneka Bisma team for a wonderful stay.

Quiet, utterly clean, wonderful food (a la carte! all day long), beautiful setting. Short drive to Ubud, free shuttle every hour or half hour. Yes, expensive, but worth every $.
Deco really beautiful! Good for kids and honeymoon. Remember that this is a quiet place.
Shuttle to/from airport 490.000R. Room is huge, big enough to 2 adults and 2 kids. Restaurant is very good and price OK.
Would stay there again and again.

Room Tip: always take shuttle to Ubud centre. Roads no good for walking, no lighting, etc...

FOR RECEPTION TEAM;
'Indonesian hospitality' comes from the heart and culture of Indonesian people. It should be proud of its roots; it should always treat all people with the same respect and grace. There's no Indonesian hospitality if there's no respect to fellow Indonesian.
