“Great hotel and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We wanted a hotel that was in the middle of the action and somewhere we would be able to walk to go out and this was perfect. We had a large room and bathroom and the property was spacious with a pool and bar in the back. We didn't get to use it as we were out seeing Ubud. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They did a couple drops for us at a dance show (and came back for us when done) and did the same for my friend for yoga one morning. Really helpful.

They also arranged a last minute tour to see the rice terraces and coffee plantations within an hour as that was our last day to see things and we also got out to have a cocktail at another property where a friend was staying. After driving the 20 minutes to get to the Four Seasons, I am glad we weren't staying out there as it was far enought to make you not want to leave the property. The Komaneka was wonderful (and if you wanted to get out to the further jungle property, they would take you there for breakfast, tea time or use of the pool), so you get the best of location on Monkey Forest and use of other properties.

I would stay again for sure and would return to Monkey Forest as we could walk to the Sacred Monkey forest, lunch, dinner and shopping.

Great stay!

We stayed here as a last stop in Bali. This hotel and the villas are beautiful and well located on the Monkey Forest Road. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Early check-in and late check-out were no problem.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Komaneka Monkey Forest. Our villa was lovely as was breakfast on the patio. Afternoon tea was also excellent and staff were very friendly. Recommended base for discovering Ubud's gems.

We stayed here for the first 3 nights of our holiday to Bali and it lives up to every good review on here. The staff couldn't do enough for you and the afternoon teas well and truely dragged me off the cake wagon. We had a day out with the driver who took us to see a couple of stunning temples, a waterfall and some beautiful rice fields in the foothills of the mountains further north on Bali which was unplanned but fortunately he wasn't booked out that day. We stayed in the pool villa 102 (if memory serves) had a wonderful view of the valley and, much to our delight, had a tree frog which seemed to have taken up residence on the support post in the outdoor seating area, where we enjoyed our breakfast on the first day. So anyone who is lucky enough to get this room, please be kind to fred ( my husbands name for the tree frog) :)

We stayed in komaneka monkey forest for 3 nights, I am very touched by the level of service of the staff in this hotel. The staff are all very helpful and are always very attentive to our requests.
I am very impressed also by the variety of breakfast options in this hotel. It is also very handy they have Apple TV in the room.

The location of this hotel is very convenient too. It's around 10 mins' walk to the Monkey Forest. If you are interested in trekking, you can also walk from the hotel to a beautiful trail, overseeing the valleys and rice fields in Ubud. This particular hotel does not have a panoramic view of the rice fields and valleys but I think the location is perfect for convenience.

If you prefer a more scenic option, I think the Komaneka has another hotel up on the hill which offers nice scenery.

Is it possible to have a Love Affair with a hotel?? Lol. This was our third stay in 3 years, again we had the same Pool Villa as last year - so it definitely seemed as if we were 'coming home'. The staff was, as always, perfect. A special mention to Yuli, a beautiful lady who is an excellent ambassador for the Komaneka Group. We cannot recommend this hotel enough - the accommodation, the service and the location is just amazing considering the very fair price. My only complaint is that I didn't stay there long enough...

Our first trip to Bali and we were very anxious about our stay but we quickly realised that Komaneka was like stepping into a relatives' home where nothing but the best was laid on for us. All the staff knew our names even if we hadn't been introduced. The attention to detail whether it was in the way the bed was decorated on our arrival, to the drinks and biscuits in the car that met us at the airport to the insect repellent in our room was beyond anything we have experienced before. The setting was superb and incredibly relaxing. The contrast to the noise and crowds on the streets of Ubud was totally unexpected and almost a spiritual experience once we entered the lobby and gardens. We will return and we will stay longer next time. Special thanks to Yuli.
