“Amazing Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I must say that when we first arrived in Ubud coming from Lovina we were disappointed by the crowds of tourists. After one night at the Komaneka, we totally changed our mind. The staff are nothing short of amazing. They cater to your every need and make sure that you are taken care of in every way. Some things not to miss at the Komaneka: definitely go to breakfast and eat Indonesian (the food is wonderful); it may seem odd, given the number of restaurants in the area, but eat dinner at the restaurant at least once and eat Indonesian (the food is great and the atmosphere is very relaxing); get a message (the staff are great and the massage experience is one of the best I've had); go to afternoon tea (the food is always interesting and you get another chance to have Kopi Bali); take the staff up on their offer to take you to one or more of the local performances.
We have continued our trip to destinations through Thailand and Vietnam and frankly we have lamented the whole way that none of the places we have stayed have even come close to measuring up to Komaneka in terms of the the rooms, the staff, the overall experience and the great price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the third floor for the best experience.

From the moment we arrived, the greeting is the pleasant, authentic, warm and gentle full-service-with-a-smile perfection, as you are presented with clear instruction, a comfy open-air seat at reception and a welcome drink and cold towel. Because we arrived a little early we were happy to wait for our room so made our first venture to the open-air restaurant with a great breeze which overlooks the infinity pool (looks like a big lagoon!) overlooking the jungle below. Simply magic! The music playing was soft enough to be a beautiful local compliment to the scenery before us. When our room was ready, we were also pleased to find how spacious it was, with a balcony facing some greenery and in the bathroom, a large shower as well as bathtub and separate toilet area.

All of the staff was professional and super-helpful/friendly. We also enjoyed spa treatments at the Spa on the scenic upper floor, and found the prices reasonable and the spa staff/therapists seemed knowledgeable. Would definitely come back here.

I chose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews. From the moment I initiated contacted with the komaneka group, the service was fantastic. My husband and I stayed in a roof top villa, they were superb, excellent design, fit out and furnishings. We have stayed in several villas in Bali, and this has to be one of the best. Even though we were staying in a hotel, they were very private. The location is good despite being off a busy road, we didn't hear any traffic and the views make you feel as though you're in the countryside. We asked to see a standard room and these were large and again beautifully appointed. The staff were lovely without being intrusive, we think they all knew our names within thirty minutes after our arrival! We will stay here on our next trip. Not sure if I should share this review as I don't want it to get too popular and busy!

Room Tip: The roof top villas are very private. They consist of a private terrace with outdoor shower, lounge...

This is certainly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The customer service is amazing. My friend was ill and the staff could not have been more caring, hospitable and helpful. They rang often (but not too often) to see how she was doing, drove me to the Pharmacy to pick up medications, offered to call in the Doctor, sent up cups of herbal tea and fruit platters - it was like the whole hotel knew she was ill and was genuinely concerned.

The hotel is beautiful, located perfectly in Ubud - you can get to everything easily by foot - anywhere that you can't get to the staff will offer to drive you for a small fee. The food is great, the turn down service is amazing (they give you pyjamas - awesome!), the whole establishment is cared for and so well maintained. SUPER CLEAN, which is fantastic - I am a little bit of a neat freak and seriously could not fault the hygiene standards of this place.

If you are looking for a romantic hotel this is also for you, with a few little surprises thrown in for couples. The rooms are superb and the bathrooms are fantastic.

Highly recommended - I'll be returning!

We only stayed for one night but it was great. The afternoon tea and breakfast was of a very good standard. The room was big and lovely. The location on Jl Monkey Forest was great. We really loved Ubud and would stay much longer next time!

This wonderful gem is located right on Jl Monkey Forest, at the heart of Ubud. Lots of local places to eat and shop at, right at the end of its driveway or within walking distance (otherwise rent a bike to ride around Ubud or use the hotel shuttle car). And the nature reserve Monkey Forest is just down the road, so the area is luscious and green.

Yet, the design of the hotel is such that the rooms are built away from the bustle of the road, so you can still enjoy the serenity and beauty of Ubud. The rooms at Komaneka are spacious and luxurious and for the price we paid, I thought it was good value and worth it considering some of the über high-end resorts and villas around Ubud that cost an arm and a leg. It makes for a romantic getaway or if you're just looking for some calm.

But the best part of our stay was the staff. They remember your names. They helped us make local calls and other travel-related enquiries. They remember any requests that you made during your stay. And they are not just friendly, they are sincere, the epitome of Balinese hospitality and the reason why I love this place and return visit after visit.

Will definitely recommend this place to friends and can't wait to return myself.

From the moment we arrived at the Komaneka at Rasa Sayang to the moment we left there, my husband and I had a very positive experience. We were fortunate to have stayed at the very private Rooftop Garden Villa. It was very spacious, clean, stylish and modern. There were fresh flowers in the room every day and on our arrival there were fresh rose petals and frangipani flowers on our bed in the shape of a heart. The room was serviced everyday to a standard of a first day arrival. I was pleasantly surprised one day at the poolside by being presented with a fresh and delicious birthday cake with my name on it!! We found all the staff to be very pleasant and obliging, we had initial problem with the Apple TV, but the problem was rectified in a timely manner. We have travelled extensively around the world and in particular in South East Asia, we always stay at top end hotels and I can honestly say that the level of service, attention to detail and genuine wish to please we received from the staff at The Komaneka at Rasa Sayang was second to none. The hotel is very well located on Monkey Forest Road, many quality shops and restaurants/cafes within easy walking distance. Reception staff arranged a reservation and a car (free of charge) to take us to and from The Bridges restaurant, which we can also recommend. We enjoyed a meal, and on several occasions drinks at Three Monkeys, almost opposite Komaneka. We would definitely return to Komaneka at Rasa Sayang without any hesitation and would certainly recommend staying at The Rooftop Garden Villa. Thank you to the management and wonderful staff for a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: The Rooftop Garden Villa is very private, spacious and stylish.
