This was my second stay at the Komaneka Bisma. The first was on vacation with my son just over a year ago. Our first stay made such a positive impression (and I have traveled most of the world) that I went out of my way just to stay again for one night before traveling to Singapore for an important business venture in Singapore. After 36 hours of flight from the United States, nothing could be more relaxing than coming back to my now 'second home' on Bali. Every aspect of the resort is impeccable. It all starts with the staff who genuinely treat you as part of their family. You will get a smile from every person on the resort with a friendly hello followed by your name. And it is not an act, they truly care about you. For instance, when I arrived with little advance notice, Wis was there to greet me as I was exiting the car with a huge smile and asking, "Where is Taylor (my son)?" This after a year! I truly knew I was 'home' and all the tensions of the trip overseas immediately vanished upon check in. Wis and the staff even notified me that they had saved the exact Pool Villa where we stayed on our first visit. It's these small things that make such a difference. As I was sitting in the beautiful lobby that evening, the Resort general manager Surya came up and introduced himself and welcomed me back. We had a long discussion in which he asked all about myself and I did the same. I run a business of my own that demands hands on customer service and to Surya that I have modeled my approach in training to hopefully accomplish from my team to what I experience while staying at the Bisma. Now to the Resort itself. It lies on the most beautiful piece of land in Ubud (maybe all of Bali) overlooking the forest and river behind the resort with total seclusion. You cannot get this at any other resort including the other Komaneka sites. If you are going to stay at a Komeneka site, stay at the Bisma as you really do get the most beautiful experience without being any further from all the Ubud sites. The rooms are impeccably kept and clean. My bathtub was filled with flower pedals upon arrival as well as the bed. Also, if you're making the effort to come here, spend the little extra and stay in one of the pool villas. Words cannot explain how amazing these rooms are, each with a 10m or approximately 30 ft. plunge pool overlooking the edge of the forest. A refreshing way to relax after a day of exploring. The rooms have huge outdoor patios along the pools with very spacious interiors, indoor and outdoor showers, all the entertainment and technology you need, and tremendous food to go along. If you have special requests, the staff will tend to your every need. I was able to get early check in and a later check out due to a later flight to Singapore and was done in a snap. After just 28 hours at the Bisma, I was ready for my presentations the following day- thank you all at the Komaneka. We will be coming back again in August for an extended stay as my family was jealous I was there for just one day without them. Wis even had a special gift to bring home for my son upon departure! I can guarantee after you check in and are at the resort, you will find it hard to leave. Every place I stay while on travels tends to disappoint after staying at the Bisma as they have set a bar so high that it is impossible to match. Do yourself a favor and don't even think about staying at another resort if staying in Ubud! It is also great for families, couples, you name it- something for all.
