“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights. When we arrived we both had the flu :( The wonderful lady who was checking us in asked us if we would like some herbal tea and we said yes. It was so delicious and such a nice gesture.

Upon arriving into the beautiful room, there were flowers in a love heart shape on our bed, we thought this was a cute touch.

We were so surprised when we had a card in our room with a basket of fresh fruit hoping that we get better from our sickness. We were very touched :)

Overall I would recommend this place to anyone, and i would have to say that this place was one of the nicest places I have stayed at, with wonderful attentive staff who remember your names.
I had a massage there as well and whilst it was more expensive than one from the street shops, it was so lovely and worth every penny.

Thank you to the staff at Komaneka for making our stay wonderful :)

Komaneka at Monkey Forest is that kind of hotel when exquisite unbounded asian beauty is emphasized by a high-class service.24- hours room service and internet lounge with all the facilities at your request. Breadfruit trees, mango trees, tangerine trees just outside your door. And all this just in the middle of the town.
People who work there deserve a special praise.You stay there just for just 3 days- but they already know that you are vegetarian and that you like snake fruits- so pancakes without eggs on breakfast and a free plate of snake fruits every day. And that amazing girl Yuly gave us a really hot deal in their Spa (we really could't expect that much). By the way Conde Nast claims on of their hotels (all in Ubud) to be the best spa in Indonesia 2012.

I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship (c)

This was a truly great find! On the main drag but away from the hustle & bustle! Our beautiful room was on the ground floor with our own separate entrance & courtyard. It was our anniversary & a lovely cake was provided. The breakfast was yummy with freshly squeezed juices. Even the little computer room upstairs was great. The staff were friendly & happy! The afternoon tea did not look so appetising but some may like it. The flowers on the bed were a special effect! My glassed wall bathroom was exquisite!! Ubud is well worth a stay!!

Room Tip: My room on the bottom of a two storey building was great! I would happily stay there again!

We had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Komaneka at Monkey Forest in Ubud. Firstly the hotel is so intimate, you almost feel like you are staying in someone's home, your home. The location is central to everything, restaurants, bars, shops, warungs and local attractions. The staff really made the stay special, it was very personalised. We stayed for 7 days and would have loved to stay longer. We did the cooking school the hotel offered and as we had already attended another cooking school in Sanur, the staff arranged for our chef/instructor Sugariatha to show us the dishes we hadn't already seen and really wanted to know. These dishes we had eaten locally and weren't in their recipe book, so our chef/instructor wrote a book for us specially and the team in the hotel typed and bound it. We really had a fabulous time and whilst the Komaneka group has other premises in the area which are probably just as nice ( & they offer to show you whilst you are there ), this one holds a special place in our hearts. Never enjoyed a hotel so much. Do yourself a favour and stay there, we are so glad we did.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room upstairs if you are a light sleeper in case there are children in the room abov...

I have stayed at numerous hotels in Bali and in Ubud and this is one of my all time favourites. We selected this hotel because of the location on Monkey Forrest road and decided to upgrade to a pool villa, which I am so glad we did. Our room was divine and the little touches of this hotel make your stay truly special. The breakfast is the best I have had experiences anywhere. The pool villa has a large bathroom that includes sunken bath and hidden shower, toilet area. It is large enough to include space to store your suitcases. I just loved the bed canopy that overlooked the pool area and rice paddy. Our little outside dining area is where we had our breakfast and spent some time relaxing. I did dip in the pool which is small, but all you need. The little touches will make your stay special such as the cold towel you get on check in, the fact they remember your name and say "welcome home" every time you return, the slippers and night shirt at your bed, hand written card and welcome gift....it was the most expensive hotel on our recent trip but you could tell the difference and it was worth the extra to really spoil yourself. There is another Komaneka that is in very close walkind distance on the other side of the road, but I am glad we stayed here as the other one had lots of steps although it also looked lovely.

Room Tip: upgrade to pool villa

Two girlfriends and I stayed at Komaneka Monkey Forest in Oct 2012 for 3 nights. Room 103, a pool villa, was brilliant. We had a extra bed in the room and a hollywood twin and it was perfect for the 3 of us. The resort had a small, relaxed atmosphere - so different to the big resorts in nusa dua etc. staff were great. we had breaky at our villa at no extra charge. Small negative - the light in the dressing room was too dull to see properly when putting on makeup!! Afternoon tea for 2 hours was quaint also. Location was great - right in the heat of everything. Two doors down you must go to the laughing buddah bar (??) where they have a live band on most nights - get there early for seat. its standing room on the pavement only once the band starts. Had dinner at Bridges - was really lovely. Komaneka would suit all travellers. We spent a lot of time trying to find the perfect place to stay for this holiday and we were all extremely happy our choice!

Room Tip: the only room tips i could find were for pool villa 103 - so thats what we requested. we wanted som...

Fantastic resort with only 20 rooms in heart of Ubud. Great room, beautifully appointed, amazing bathroom in deluxe room. Nice breakfast, great pool, terrific spa in the property. Central to all of the shopping and monkey forest yet quiet. Highly recommended. We stayed in late October for 92 nights.
