“Brilliant hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The Komaneka at Rasa Sayang is sited right in the middle of Ubud, a short walk from all the main attractions, restaurants and bars yet being set back off Monkey Forest Road means it is a haven of quiet. Relaxing by the kidney shaped pool overlooking the forest doesn't get any better.
The rooms are spacious, extremely well equipped and with wonderful bathrooms. There's an abundance of choice for breakfast which is served until 11am, ideal for those staying out late.
The spa on the 4th floor is a haven of calm and the Balinese massage both relaxing and good value.
But what elevates this hotel from really good to excellent are the staff. From the friendly welcome on the front desk to the staff serving at the pool,they are attentive, charming and will go out of their way to help and ensure your stay is perfect. We had some luggage problems at the airport and they sorted it straight away and without any fuss. Couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough. It may be more expensive than many others on the Monkey Forest road but it is well worth it. Maybe that it is owned by Balinese rather than the big chains is what makes the small but important differences.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the quieter.

If you are looking for a place in central Ubud which is yet tranquil and has beatiful lush views, this is the place to go. The service was really lovely. As a nice surprise we got upgraded to the rooftop villa, which was really beyond expectations - a spacious, elegant and private escape overlooking the roofs of Ubud. Breakfast was served to our own terrace, with no extra charge. And even the 30 min massage which was included in the price, was upgraded to 60min. Perfect and unforgettable stay in Ubud!

As a first time visitor to Bali, we arrived at the Komaneka at night directly from the airport - and our beautiful experience started immediately! From the wonderful warm welcome at Reception, to the introduction to our splendid room perfectly laid out with orchard petals on the bed, this was the perfect accommodation for us. The hotel boasts fabulous facilities in the spacious bedroom and around the hotel. The breakfasts at the infinity pool were outstanding and served with grace and poise. We really appreciated the free afternoon teas and transport to restaurants and museum. Above all the staff were excellent, friendly and an absolute pleasure. This is truly a marvellous hotel, well positioned close to shops, markets and restaurants, to experience the heartbeat of Ubud.

We stayed for 3 nights last week. The central location is fantastic. The staff are simply lovely. Being a small hotel they get to know you by name quickly. Breakfast is wonderful and flavoursome. Didn't try the spa as ran out of time but we used their free shuttle service and they were excellent picking us up from a show and recommending a restaurant to go to afterwards. The driver even checked we could get into the restaurant before leaving us! It was my husband's birthday and they went the extra mile by making a fantastic birthday cake, one of the best I've ever tried! Try getting a room on level 2 or 3 as we found level 1 a bit dark. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a memorable holiday in central Ubud.

Stayed 3 nights. Great location in heart of Ubud. Means you compromise a bit on views vs other places perhaps, but for a stopover it's a great bet. Staff amazing, in particular Lionk on guest services who went out his way to help - even on his day off. Couple of things - we travelled with young kids (2,4,6) and its not the most child friendly of places eg a precipitous drop by the side of the pool. Also the interconnecting rooms connect by balcony so bear in mind. Food was good, though breakfast ever so slightly underwhelming - could probably do with some improvement on bread and pastries - but frankly that was picking holes. All in all a great place and fully merits its great reviews.

I have just stayed here and it was the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff were so accommodating and friendly. It is a small boutique hotel with personalized service. The food is great, it is in great proximity to central Ubud, and the rooms are delightful. The attention to detail is what really makes this a great hotel. The staff are outstanding and simply can not do enough for you. It is importantly, very quiet and and you certainly don't feel like you are in central Ubud. The pool is really lovely, and the afternoon teas are a must. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

After a long flight and an overnight stay in Jakarta this was the "proper" start to our honeymoon. What a perfect start! Beautiful Ubud is reflected perfectly in this hotels architecture and decor & the hospitality was exceptional. We enjoyed first class treatments in the spa and the menu in the restaurant. They treated us to honeymoon gifts and could be more helpful, making us feel very special guests. Highly recommended! World class.
