“Very special hotel was a real treat to stay here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

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.

Our first trip to Ubud, we were so lucky to have chosen this amazing hotel.
It is right in the middle of the action but so peaceful that you would never know it.
I cant say enough about the service and how amazing the staff are at this establishment, it was humbling to be treated so well by these beautiful people.
Our room was awesome, the bed was made up with towel swans surrounded by rose petals and frangipani flowers and the bath set in the outdoor space was so romantic.

Loved it, we will be back.

Spent three nights on a family trip to celebrate my parents' 50th anniversary. From the moment we arrived at Komaneka we were treated like family. The staff was very warm and accommodating. I had a villa that was lovely with a very large bathroom. However the highlight was the private patio with a plunge pool and koi pond that overlooked the jungle. I've never had a room in such a beautiful setting. Breakfast, which was included was very good as well.

The hotel is set right off of middle of busy Monkey Forest road in Ubud. However, it is so quiet you would never realize you are in walking distance of everything in town.

Highly recommend the Komaneka Monkey Forest for your stay in Ubud.

Room Tip: A villa is definitely worth the

We stayed here for a week and it is absolutely the best holiday I have ever had. From the moment we turned up it was like a second home, the staff could not do or help us any more. They were all so friendly and spoke excellent English so it was easy to ask for help in finding what we needed. They even went out of their way to drive us to the Neka Museum (which was awesome, and full of amazing stuff), brought me a cake on my birthday and sang happy birthday to me! Along with all the other free add-ons we received while staying there. Cannot recommend this place more. If you want to stay in the middle of Ubud, with a peaceful beautiful hotel to come back to then this is the place!

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a suite room from a deluxe and the only complaint I had was that it is a lower r...

Have stayed 4 times. This a great little hotel. Good location right in the heart of Ubud. The staff are the best so friendly and helpful. The massage is fantastic. Rooms are spacious, old Bali style.
Will be back again. Soon I hope!
