Komaneka at Monkey Forest began as a residence for artists behind the prestigious Komaneka Gallery, specializing in fine contemporary Indonesian and Balinese art. Now recently renovated with luxurious suites, an infinity pool, open-air restaurant, spa, and pool villas, all in a lush garden with mature shade trees, this is a very special oasis. The resort's location on the Monkey Forest Road gives immediate access to the Ubud market and all the cultural activities of the Ubud palace, Puri Ubud, residence of Ubud's ruling family. At the other end of this bustling street, lined with restaurants and boutiques, is a sacred monkey forest.

Fantastic location just off the Main Street but set way back in jungle so no noise apart from frogs and cicadas:-) lovely and spacious room with pool. Great breakfast. Best of all, the lovely welcoming staff. No nice to be called your name throughout. We would like to return.

Wonderful stay at Komaneka Monkey Forest thanks to the service provided by staff. We had a Villa with private pool, which was well maintained daily, and ‘turn down’ service provided. Our Villa was adjacent to the gorge which gave us front row seats to monkeys on their daily travel through the trees. Although we went to Monkey Forest National Park, we probably didn’t need to with how close we could see the monkeys. They did travel along our balcony, however, so just a word of caution for anyone nervous around them. The provided breakfast is adequate but as the location is central Ubud, you have many different options from metres away of the entrance. Staff were very polite and helpful, including arranging a local driver for transport. Would recommend a stay.

The staff here are absolutely wonderful! They are so friendly, polite and helpful and it just made the entire stay feel like home rather than being at another hotel resort. Rooms are comfortable and clean but just remember you are in a natural surrounding so typical things like mosquitoes, insects and such are common and you will notice them around here and there but this is outside their control. The only other thing that really bothered us were the geckos roaming on our roof as they seemed to constantly call out all day and night. Having thin walls this would drive a person made but luckily we had some ear plugs so we were still able to get a good sleep. We didn't get the chance to jump into the pool however we did walk by a few times. Very beautiful pool with a beautiful natural backdrop. Breakfast a la carte menu was limited however sufficient and a bit repetitive if you were to stay there for a long time. The accommodation was extremely well located within walking distance to almost everything so you won't really need to catch a taxi if you are ok to go for short walks! Overall very happy with our stay and would stay again.

Instantly a sense of peaceful welcoming bliss. This small boutique hotel in the middle of bustling Ubud feels like home away from home, our second time here. Apart from the spacious rooms, super comfy beds, and tranquil gardens, the staff are so genuinely caring and helpful. Nothing is too much to ask for. If I have to find a fault it would be the coffee at breakfast perhaps, just ok. Afternoon tea is great though, tasty local treats! And I can recommend the spa services - expect to pay a little more than some of the street spas, but really lovely pampering.

I stayed at Komaneka Monkey Forest for four nights in August 2022. Komaneka is a small, centrally located resort on Monkey Forest Road, right in the heart of Ubud. It is a surprisingly peaceful sanctuary right in the middle of the hustle and bustle. From Inside the resort I could Neither see nor hear the chaos of the Main Street. It was blissful. The staff are really lovely and will go above and beyond to help you with anything and everything you might need, from different pillows to extra water or day tours or supplies from the pharmacy. They were really welcoming and helpful. My suite was large with a comfortable king size bed, day bed, desk and a garden terrace to sit outside. The bathroom and dressing room were enormous and I particularly loved the glass roofed bath with its garden wall. The pool area is small but beautiful and surrounded by lush tropical jungle. Beware the monkey that sometimes visits - he dropped some fruit in the pool and, unable to reach it, turned his attention to my water bottle. No harm done though I didn’t really hang around to find out what other mischief he might get up to!!

Komaneka Monkey Forrest has been my go to retreat for over 18 years. I have always loved the soul and Magic it offers. Although the oldest of the Komaneka resorts it has always been the most magical. I let me take you on the journey. From the airport pick up the Komaneka staff greet you by name and recognise you straight away, take you to the car where cold beverages and fragrant cold towel await,they drive you to the resort and the journey is always filled with pleasant conversation. On arrival you are greeted with a refreshing drink, another fragrant towel and a huge welcome back to your home in Ubud, everyone knows you and greets you by name. You are escorted to your room which is impeccable with a lovely stocked minibar and all your needs catered too. The delightful turn down service with the wonderful Komaneka sleeping gown makes going to bed special. The breakfast is spectacular and the service warm and welcoming and the utmost is done to make sure your stay in Ubud is wonderful. The abundant afternoon tea is amazing and enough to see you through to dinner . The Komaneka staff have always been considered part of the family and we’re always consistent. That is the Komaneka Monkey Forrest I fell in love with, it epitomises Ubud and why it let coming back. It’s no longer anything like that. The breakfast is still spectacular though the Indonesian speciality must be ordered in advance. The rooms are still nice but the magical extras are gone along with the minibar and after 18 years I no longer recognise many of the staff or them us. The wonderful manager Dewi is no longer there and her presence is notably missed in all the details. After repeated attempts to book our stay directly with Komaneka ( no replies to emails sent) I had to use booking .com and then ring the hotel to confirm and arrange airport pick up, which is now just a regular taxi. I know Komaneka monkey Forrest is very small and not as new as the others in the Komaneka brand but it was the soul and the place the bigger hotels grew from , sadly it feels like it’s a little neglected.

It's been too long since my last visit, and I must say I'm feeling a little homesick for Komaneka. The welcoming staff really do make it feel like a home away from home. It is one of my favourite places, and it's truly special. You feel the warmth and hospitality from the moment you arrive! The staff are absolutely incredible! The restaurant is wonderful, and dining at night in amongst the lizards and the balmy tropical air is sublime. I've spent many happy evenings this way. Complimentary afternoon tea here is also another highlight. My first visit was nearly 10 years ago. It was my first solo trip, and my birthday, and they really made it one to remember - from singing me happy birthday with a cake, to checking my room for lizards, I always felt looked after. The day spa is also a treat, with a view! The location is perfect! You're right on Monkey Forest Road, yet once you walk through the gates you wouldn't realise it! It's serene and peaceful. I will forever continue to visit Komaneka Monkey Forest. I miss you all and can't wait until I can get back there!

After much hesitation we finally decided to stay in this great hotel. We hesitated with the more prestigious hotels of the Four Season & co... we have no regrets! Of course the hotel is more a boutique hotel than a luxury palace but its location is unbeatable! Currently with the situation post Covid-19 Ubud knows very big problems of circulation... but the hotel is hyper centered and everything can be done on foot! A real plus! Moreover the hotel is comfortable and well maintained! Last but not least, the staff is extremely dedicated and friendly! They organized for our daughter a workshop of making offerings! A magical moment! In short, a great option in the heart of Ubud.

We stayed in a standard room, which was quite large, with a sofa and desk in addition to the sleeping area. The bathroom was also large and well stocked, with a nice glass shower. They service the room twice day, once in the morning and once in the evening. At the latter they gave us 2 additional bottles of water, a nightshirt (heavenly!), turned down the bed and laid out slippers for us. We had a balcony with not much of a view, but monkeys came by and gave us a show. Beware, though, they can bite! The restaurant was kind of average, but shopping, an ATM, and trustworthy restaurants were right outside. So why such a low rating? The bed was so hard I couldn't sleep on it. It was a thin mattress over a very firm box spring, and for me it was like sleeping on a rock. Fortunately, the sofa was comfortable, and large enough for me to stretch out, so I slept there the other nights. Other than the bed I'd recommend Komaneka highly. Especially the night shirts!
