“Tranquil location, VIP treatment - perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We spent eights nights here for our honeymoon in August 2012. We stayed in a valley view room (#108). This meant that we had our own private plunge infinity pool, daybed and two sunloungers. The pool was far too cold to use, despite the weather being very hot - well apart from dipping our feet in. However, it was still a lovely treat. As part of our room we also had an outside volcanic carved free standing bath tub, big enough for two people, which was next to our own private pond complete with fish! Not only this, we also had our own indoor bathroom complete with monsoon shower (as well as a regular shower) and two his & hers sinks. The feature of the main room was the beautiful bed, which has a mosquito net. We also had a sofa in our room, tv, dvd player, music system etc. The pictures on the website don't do the room justice - it is bigger than it seems. Everything is finished to the highest quality and the conemporary design is a really smart finish. You get the use of a hairdryer, slippers, PJs, dressing gowns, all toiletries (which by the way smell lovely - lemon and ginger). They also happily brought an iron and ironing board to the room for us to use.

Every morning whilst we were out at breakfast the staff cleaned our room, which also included topping up the homemade cookies and fresh fruit in the room - really nice touch and the cookies are mourishly good!. Every evening whilst out at dinner the staff also tidied the room, including laying out Komaneka PJs, pulling the mosquito nets round, drawing the curtains and even laying bedtime stories and love quotes on the bed - much classier than the usual tacky towel animals! We were also given complimentary mineral water in the room, which they topped up regularly and they were happy to provide more water if requested.

Breakfast was included and wow, was it a feast! The menu contains about six different four course choices. However, they are happy for you to skip a course or mix up the choices, effectiovely creating your own menu. I can highly recommend the banana pancake, the orange waffle and the pastry basket. Actually, we tried most of the breakfast choices and all were amazing. You can also have a variety of freshly made juices - melon, pineapple etc. Tea also extends to herbal choices - green/jasmine/peppermint etc. The restaurant it is served in is beautiful - lovely wooden carved panels. However, you can have the same breakfast choices served in your room if you'd rather - this is at no extra cost. The breakfast was so filling that we never even had to go for lunch - we lasted until dinner. Though complimentary afternoon tea is provided everyday and was hard to resisit! Tea/Coffee of your choice served with different fresh cakes - either in the restaurants or in your room.

We had dinner in the restuarant quite a few nights and it was just as great as the breakfasts, They even created a personalised vegetarian menu once they realised one of us was a veggie. This was a very sweet touch and just shows one of the many reasons why Komaneka deserves 10/10 for customer service. It isn't as cheap as some of the dinners you can have in Ubud main town. However, it isn't all overpriced and is still cheaper than England. We had starters/mains/deserts and a drink for about 290IDR. Deserts included lemon cheesecake, banana fritters, ice cream etc. Lots of balianese choices for all the courses.

The views around the hotel are lovely - beautiful rice fields, lots of greenery. The grounds of the hotel themselves are also very pretty. There are only about 17 villas at the moment and although they were booked up, we hardly saw anyone else, which to be honest was quite nice. There is a nice, quiet, relaxed atmosphere. They are currently building a further 15 villas, one of which will be a two bedroom villa. The manager showed us round the one finished villa and wow, it was impressive - it made our amazing villa look inadequate and that's saying something! Apparently they will be ready for 2013 and we would definitely want to stay in one of them. There is an art gallery onsite and lots of wooden carvings/sculptures on display. We brought an A4 print out of one of the paintings for 100IDR.There is also a shop, which is pricier than the ones in maintown Ubud, but it is much classier.

We used the shuttle bus to main town Ubud on most days - it takes about 20 minutes and is in a seven seater people carrier vehicle, complete with air conditioning. They provide you with the schedule of pick up/drop off locations/times - it's all very simple and worked really well. Most times we didn't even share the vehicle with anyone else.

We used the spa at the hotel - we booked before our visit via email and the staff responded to all of our emails within 24 hours, speaking in fluent English which was very helpful. We had a massage and scrub for $60USD and a massage for $40USD. Again, you can pay a lot less in maintown Ubud, but the location would not be as nice and I don't think the quality of the treatment would compare. When you arrive for your treatment you are given a welcome drink, fresh fruit and after your treatment you are given a lemongrass and ginger drink and vegetable cookies. You can also use the jacuzzi and steam room afterwards (or even if you don't have a treatment). Again, we had sole use of the spa when we were there which made it feel extra special.

We also paid $40USD between both of us to do a cycle tour with the hotel. It was just us two and Eddie from Komaneka. We were provided with high quality mountain bikes and helmets. We cycled through the rice fields, to the next village and were so lucky as it was Independence Day - we saw lots of celebrations at various points of the route - cockrel fighting, temple/offering preparations, climbing up the greasy palm trees to try to win prizes etc. We visited a Balianese compound (home) at the end, which gave a very truthful insight into the Bali life. We were a litle worried that we may have been pressured into "tipping" the family as a thank you, but this was not the case. They were very friendly. The cycle trek follows a pre-planned route, however, it is pretty much open to options - depending on what it is going on that day! Eddie was really informative and he spoke great English. He was really friendly. There is a part of the route where you have to carry your bike for a minute or two because the pathway is so thin, so bear that in mind.

We also treated ourselves to the Redlight Dinner - $150USD between us. It is worth every penny. It's basically a dinner in your villa, whereby you have a personalised menu (with enough food to feed the whole island!!), food served by a private waiter, red roses, the pool is filled with petals, the whole place is filled with candles, music etc - it is very classy & romantic - such a lovely experience, so if you can, make sure you do this "add on".

Finally, we also did a volcano trek for 450,000IDR each which the hotel organised for us, but it was operated by a different company.

The hotel also organises a weekly special dinner for $35USD, such as a market place film night or Balianese Dance night. There are also other trips/experiences you can add on at extra costs - they provide all of the details in the room - as well as a few free activities like yoga. We used some of the free DVDs (English and some in the top 40).

The staff at this hotel are absolutely amazing - they make you feel so important and special - they helped give us a honeymoon that we will never forget. They all speak great English, are always smiling and are genuine. They remember your name, your food likes/dislikes. When we arrived they greeted us with welcome cocktails (this continued everytime we had dinner there as well!), they provided us with a recipe for the delicious banana cake, they gave us a leaving present of matching dressing gowns when we were leaving, they gave us a bag of sweets that we had said we liked etc (all free of charge).

We would most definitely recommend Komaneka at Taggayuda for a honeymoon. We saw the location of the other Komanekas (main Ubud) and were glad we had picked this one, as it is a lot quieter and serene, but you still have the choice of going into Ubud via the shuttle - best of both worlds. We cannot fault anything and had the most amazing experience here. We have travelled a lot and stayed in some beautiful places, but this tops them all. We booked our trip here in December and visiited in August - we checked the reviews in here at least weekly and never read anything negative. If you're thinking about booking a trip here - DO IT! :)

Spent three days here with a friend and was sorry I could not stay longer. KTY is an outstanding hotel in all respects. Luxurious without being ostentatious, cosy yet spacious, warmly welcoming and yet discretely respectful of your privacy.

Took a fantastic 2 hrs cooking class with one of the cooks, Putu, and had a ball preparing Balinese food and, of course eating it later! Wonderful 1 hr massage session with private steam bath and jacuzzi to follow.

Free wifi could be a little faster but is adequate. Breakfast is excellent, many options served at the table in a great terrace.

I loved their payjamas so much I bought one to take home!

Hourly free shuttle to downtown Bali.

My friend and i stayed all in all 8 nights at Komaneka Tanggayuda in June 2012! We had the absolute time of our lives there! Beautifully situated in the quiet and pituresque Ubud away from all the "Feralness" of Kuta etc! We were treated like absolute queens the entire time, they were so lovely, caring, considerate and attentive the entire time. From remembering what drinks we had at breakfast, and always calling us by our names, regardless if we had met them or not! There FOOD was brilliant, massages out of this world and the facilities in the villa far surpassed any i have stayed at anywhere else! Overall we are planning on returning to Bali, and heading no where else but Komaneka Tanggayuda! 10/10!

Room Tip: Definiely book a Villa!!!

We stayed at Komaneka as part of our honeymoon in Bali and on arrival it met all of our expectations and more. Every member of staff we met, whether it was to order some food, ask a question of, or simply pass as we walked around the grounds was warm, welcoming and always prepared to go the extra mile in any situation. Every member of staff helped to provide services that were prompt, efficient and discrete.
The villa was extremely well presented and comfortable with even the tiniest of details considered carefully. The rooms were really clean and this was maintained throughout our stay. The only negative comment we have is that our villa (villa 111) was advertised as having 'a valley view' but trees and foliage have grown tall, obscuring the view somewhat.
The food was excellent and good value for money, considering it was a hotel. The ability to have any meal served in our villa, with no extra charge was a real treat, which we took advantage of. Upon ordering our meals, they arrived promptly and were clearly freshly cooked.
We enjoyed the facilities and activities offered by the hotel, including a traditional Balinese cookery class given by one of the chefs. This was really good fun and we learnt a lot about the local cuisine, however it would have been even better if we could have been more involved with the actual cooking, rather than observing the chef.
All in all a fantastic resort to stay at, especially special if you are on honeymoon!

We stayed at this hotel on the second stay of our honeymoon in August 2012 for four nights. It is INCREDIBLE! We can't praise the place enough.
We had a valley view pool villa and it was decorated and finished to the highest standard. Everything is thought out and managed superbly. The bed is super comfy. They have a DVD player, tv, hifi, outdoor bath, gorgeous pool, outdoor four poster... It goes on....
The staff are OUTSTANDING. No where else have we experienced service like that. If you leave your room for half an hour, you come back and everything is spotless and tidied, many times a day, it's like they have a swot team of cleaners! They put homemade cookies in the room each day that are sooooooo good. And afternoon tea is included which makes you try some weird and wonderful foods!
The shuttle service to town is great going down and because of Bali traffic, not ideal returning, you can be waiting over an hour which isn't great, but not the hotels fault.
The spa at the hotel is the best we found. Their massages are unreal.
We just can't find the words to express our thanks to this magical hotel, but we hope to be back one day.

We stayed at Komaneka for our honeymoon, and it was simply amazing! the whole staff was top notch, the food delicious, they really made our stay perfect!
The pool villas were so amazing, the whole property is really beautiful! But honestly the staff makes this hotel! Gundek the resort manager, was awesome, giving us tips and also a little bit of history behind this magical place that is Ubud...
Also the resort is really secluded but since they offer a shuttle service to Monkey Forest road, it was really perfect. Even the staff at their sister hotel in monkey forest was great! I highly highly recommend this resort for honeymooners as its simply amazing!
AH! the spa! although pricier than what you would get in town, the service was amazing and location beautiful as well...i got a facial there, and it was hands down the best facial i had in my life! truly amazing! Thank you so much for an amazing honeymoon Komaneka!

Room Tip: If booking a pool villa, try to stay between villas 101-104 as they are the most private ones :)

We stayed at komaneka for part of our honeymoon in February and I am so glad that I chose this property. From the moment we arrived (which was actually at 10 pm) we were greeted by warm smiles and outstanding service. Our check in only took minutes and we were taken to our lovely valley facing pool villa which was exceptional. Since it was late we ordered room service and I have to make a special mention about their food specially one dish namely iga-babi ( sweet roasted pork) which I still can't forget. The property , service, attention to detail and the staff make this hotel an unbelievable package. I highly recommend this to everyone wanting a quite, comfortable and relaxing getaway.
