“The Best Hotel in Ubud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

After staying in many hotels in Ubud,
I personally think that this hotel is the best in many ways.

The location is in the centre of Ubud.
The view is a combination of rice terrace, jungle and river view.
The artworks are superb.
Staff are so friendly and helpful.

Thanks to Dek Sri, our new friend that help us getting everything we needs.
Perfect Double Macchiato, Nice juices and options of combo breakfast.

Will be back here soon...

Room Tip: Ask for the Fourth Floor...

Although the resort is near the center of Ubud, it is hidden and tucked away from the hustle and bustle. The scenery from our balcony was breathtaking, overlooking a private rice terrace. We were pleasantly surprised by the rose petals and plumeria that were arranged on the beds, as well as the beautifully scented wash towels that were offered when we arrived. If you are looking for serenity and some rest and relaxation, this is the place to go. We enjoyed the pool area, listening to the sounds of the flowing creek below and the surrounding birds nearby.

Breakfast was delicious, and the service was great.

We had a lovely experience!

This was our second stay at a Komaneka resort. They do it so well! The location of Bisma is excellent. I preferred it Tangayuda. We stayed in a Pool Villa overlooking the valley and the setting was magical. The staff are extremely helpful and the shuttle bus in and out of Ubud is such a great service. The only thing I would say in the negative it the food could be improved slightly for a hotel of this quality. It isn't terrible but it isn't superb. Luckily all that Ubud has to offer isn't far away so you can dine out most meals.

We upgraded to the Bisma for the last 2 days of our stay in Bali. The Bisma did not disappoint. The hotel was everthing we had expected. The staff was very friendly and helpful with our needs. Whenever we returned from a day trip, they greeted us with "welcome home", and that's what it felt like. The rooms were huge and the water pressure in the shower was awesome! We were on the second floor which gave a great view of the rice fields.

The breakfast in the morning was also good, we had the eggs benny every morning. The service was quick and the staff were attentive. The view from the restaurant was great as it gave the feeling of being away from the busy town.

If you decide to walk to the monkey forest or Ubud, it is about 15 minutes from the short cut and you will need to walk down the unpaved farm road. The walk was interesting and we are glad we make the trek. There is also an "alley" that is wedge between 2 buildings that is no wider than 3 feet, just be care ful and watch out for scooters as the road is actively used to get to the retreats.

We did not get to try the restaurants around the Bisma but I am sure they are very good.

We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Bali.

We stayed for our honeymoon in a 4th floor bisma suite. Arrived very late (after midnight) and were greeted at reception by name, and still given all the welcoming drinks and towels. Our room and bathtub was filled with rose petals, and there was a wonderful honeymoon cake and personally signed card from the hotel. A wonderful start to a wonderful stay.

The room was well appointed with not a thing left to want. We loved the sunhats, insect repellant, nightgowns, thongs and all the bathroom amenities. The balcony provided full afternoon sun when the pool was in shade and we spent many late afternoons on the loungers reading as the sun went down.
The pool is fantastic, clear and relaxing with the most serene views of the rice paddies and jungle.
We enjoyed breakfast and afternoon tea daily, and service from all staff was impeccable and friendly. There were daily activities for guests and we took up the offer of complimentary 1.5 hr yoga, which was very professional and a nice break from the pool for us.

The shuttle into town was very convenient, and they even dropped and picked up from locations not on the shuttle map if required. I recommend getting dropped at the end of the street (Jl Bisma) and walking across the road and through the rice fields to a little restaurant called Sari Organik. A highlight of our time in Ubud.

The only thing we were left wanting for was a happy hour, as there was a lovely bar at the lobby but not very busy.

I thoroughly recommend the Komaneka hotels for visitors to Ubud. It is very nice to be able to stay in a hotel that is owned and run by a family from Ubud (albeit a very wealthy one), as it offers a much more Balinese and heartfelt experience than a Hilton or Hyatt chain hotel. Entry to the Neka museum was complimentary for guests and we enjoyed learning a bit about the history of the family and Balinese art.

We are a couple that have have first booked at Komaneka at Tanggayuda for one week during August 2013.
After the disappointment from our suite there (see my review for Komaneka at Tanggayuda) they have transferred us at Komaneka at Bisma.

(+)Our suite was what we have dreamed of. Very nice view of the forest as well as of paddies. Very spacious and nicely furnished. Very clean, always we had fresh fruits and water in the room. The staff is very polite, the shuttle service is very convenient.
We loved the coffee time in the afternoon as well as the spa service.
We also has a very difficult day from food poisoning from a local restaurant and the staff was very helpful.

(-)The breakfast could be better. We had to select from menu. No buffet so no variety. If you stay there for one week as we did you get a little bored.
The wi-fi connection was not good at the hotel. We could do only basic things.
We would definitely return at Komaneka at Bisma!

The hotel is close to the Ubud markets and the 'heart' of Ubud but is so incredibly serene and beautiful. The hotel staff are almost all Ubud locals and have the true Balinese spirit. During a casual conversation with the hotel manager he discovered I was covered in insanely itchy bites and he mentioned the locals usually use eucalyptus oil to soothe the itch. I was shocked the next morning when another staff member arrived at our table at breakfast with a bottle for me to borrow for the remainder of our stay. The rooms are enormous and beautifully detailed. The staff are so genuinely welcoming and happy, and greet you with a 'welcome home' every time you return from your wanders around Ubud - they genuinely want you to feel comfortable and 'at home' while on your holiday. I really can't say enough good things about this hotel - I'd definitely stay there again.
