“"Simply the Best - a hidden gem in Ubud"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

For starters I'm a retired 5 star international hotel General Manager. You don't get more picky than that. Komenaka staff are first class, with a cheeky sense of humour that made every contact point feel that we were very special. From the greeting on arrival and allowing us to get into our room a little earlier than expected, throught to spacious well appointed spotless rooms, fantastic infinity pool overlooking the ravine, the free afternoon tea and top class breakfast were impossible to critique. Free Wifi fantastic.We were even allowed to saty a little later for a late checkout. The owners and management of this resort should be justifiably proud of their first class affordable property, but the real hidden gem is the amazing staff service culture. Well done, we'll be back and sure to tell others. If you found this review helpful please tick so. Cheers Owen Cook

The staff at Komaneka Monkey Forest are the most courteous, most hospitable and most welcoming people in Bali. They really go above and beyond what is expected, not a day goes by during our stay that we have not felt so spoilt and special. My special thanks to the front desk staff -- Juli, Juni, Ade, Miarta, Dewi and Yoga -- you guys are hands down the most amazing people we've met. We will come home to Ubud and come home to Komaneka at Moneky Forest each and every time we visit your beautiful island!

I broke a tooth a couple of weeks before I went on my already planned holiday to Bali...and horror of horrors, it was one of my front teeth. Long story short, I had to have the whole thing removed, here in Australia, and was told I would have to wait six months to get any kind of 'filler'...I was soooo self concious.
When I asked the staff at the hotel about dental care they couldn't have been more helpful...they found a local dentist (who saw me on a Sunday) they made sure that any kind of bridge, plate, filler would be completed before my holiday ended (it actually took only 3 days) and they provided a driver to take me to the clinic (free of charge) for both days (initial consultation and fitting)...and look SANTA, no more gaps...they were simply wonderful.
I would like to thank Hera, the resort manager, and her terrific staff for making this not only possible, but as 'easy' as possible.

We stayed at Komaneka at Monkey Forest in Ubud for a week. From the moment that we arrived to the moment that we left our stay was awesome. We travel quite a bit and we felt like the room, all of the amenities in the room, the grounds, pool and food as well as its central location was just the best place that we have ever stayed. Internet is great too. The beauty and comfort with the attention to every detail addressing asthetics was matched by the hotel staff. Every person on their staff from garden workers, chef, restaurant servers always greeted us with beautiful smiles, requests to let them know how we are finding our stay and what more that they could do for us to make our stay better. They gave us a complementary dinner one night replete with personalized menus with our names on them. Their food is varied and delicious and presented always with bright smiles and a genuine wish that we enjoy their food...which we definitely did. They gave us a gift when we left and they made us feel like we were very special guests for them. I cannot say that for the many types of places that we have stayed. After our stay in Ubud we stayed in other parts of Bali and nothing came close to our experience at Komaneka at Monkey Forest hotel.

This was a marvellous place to stay and we were simply delighted by the warmth of the hospitality provided. The rooms are well-appointed and comfortable, the food very good and the location very handy for Ubud attractions, but it is the customer service provided that stood out here. From the moment we arrived (having had a long trip up the mountain) we were simply made to feel very welcome. The hospitality provided to us over our stay simply exceeded expectations - a consistently warm, friendly and generous attitude that would be the envy of many others. It is one thing to train staff to greet guests and be helpful, but this came across as a step above - the staff seemed simply to want your stay to be as enjoyable as possible.

we spent three nights at Komeneka during december 2012. What a pleasant experience. We were greeted with such warmth from the inception of our stay. The resort is absoulately clean and the service is excellent. We even noticed staff removing brown leaves from the trees. The breakfasts were very good as well. It is located in the heart of the town and we could walk to the restaurants and shops. Thank you Neethi, for going out of your way to make my daughter feel special on her 16th birthday by having a cake for her. If ever I come back to Ubud, Komeneka would be the resort of our choice.

I stayed here for 6 days. The location is perfect for getting around in Ubud. The room was big and nicely furnished, but it is the service at this hotel that is amazing. Everyone went out of their way to learn my name, and the things that I liked. If I was sitting around reading, they'd bring me a glass of water and a cool towel. They really go out of their way to make your stay perfect - whatever your perfect might be.
