“Oasis of calm in the middle of Ubud”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights after much research on where to stay in Ubud and were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived, we were treated with great courtesy and kindness. We were lucky as it was low season, we were offered a complimentary upgrade from a room to a luxurious suite! We were thrilled with the suite, amazing four poster bed and view overlooking the paddy field. The bathroom was great too, with a sunken bath. We also had our own terrace where we enjoyed breakfast (go for the 'komaneka' breakfast - delicious!) and private pool. The reception staff, in particular Yoga, catered to our every need. The great thing about this particular Komaneka is the location. It is in the middle of monkey forest road, so you only need to walk a few minutes to areas such as the Water Palace, yet once you're inside, it is pure tranquility. Perfect for seeing Ubud and relaxing when you return by night.

5 Star Balinese hospitality - warm, classy, understated, friendly. The location was central, on Monkey Forest Road, between the Monkey Forest and the Market. The staff were friendly, efficient and warm. We stayed in a luxurious room overlooking a rice paddy which was beautiful, near the swimming pool. Highly recommended.

We stayed here three nights in late April. Myself, partner and one child.
Sensational staff. So considerate and lovely. Always looking out for you and tending to your every need. Never experienced anything like it. My 9 year old got a tummy ache one day. They rearranged our day trip for us. He got better and we went out that afternoon. On return was a hand written card to get well and a bowl of fruit. Villa was clean and luxurious. Architecture and gardens simple but absolutely beautifully Asian. Breakfast good. It's not a top notch 5 star grand experience however, a perfect "Ubud" luxury experience right in the cut and thrust of the centre of Ubud - with exceptionally friendly staff. Great for couples and the thinking family. Too quiet for multiple high energy kids.

We spent 3 nights in a suite for our honeymoon during low season and came back for another a couple of days after leaving. The atmosphere is peaceful and the service is simply incredible.
The staff is extremely professional and helpful.
The room was very clean and large. The afternoon tea by the swimming pool is always nice and renewed everyday. The breakfast's salmon poached eggs are very good though we would have preferred a buffet for the breakfast.
The hotel is located rather high up in the monkey forest street and is close to shops, restaurants and cultural centers such as the Ubud Palace.
The massages were astounding and extremely reinvigorating, well worth the extra buck compared to say the Nur Salon Spa.

We would come back for sure, if not for another nearby Komaneka hotel.

We stayed here after recommendations from Tripadvisor. We originally booked into the Komaneka Rasa Sayang but realised we had made a mistake as we wanted the one at Monkey Forest which although only 200m away had villas rather than hotel rooms. We mentioned this to management and they had us moved straight away which was great.
Service is fantastic. The complimentary afternoon tea and use of all 3 hotel facilities in the area is a nice idea.Breakfast choice is very varied and the quality is good. The hotel is very central and very good restaurants are located close by.

I researched the hotels in Ubud to great extent before deciding on Komaneka Monkey Forest, and we were very happy with this choice.

The staff at the front desk were very welcoming, and we loved our villa that included a small pool at the edge of a small valley with a stream/river down below. It was such a pretty area with the lounge chairs on a small raised platform next to the pool, with a tree above for shade. Loved this space! The staff would come and put sheets on over the pullows on the lounge chairs, making you feel so special. The water in the pool was sooo cold, would only get in basically when I was pushed in, then for photos. There was a table and chairs outside in a covered area by the pool, where we had our breakfast a few days.

The room itself was on the rustic side but in a good way, with lots of charm. The room wasn't too big, and seemed a little dark. The bathroom was outdoors (bali style) with a shower and separate large tub that we used. The room was very private with the outer doors (bali style) made our space feel exclusive. The place was very quiet and at night the path was lit up with torches...took so many photos...

In terms of location, you walked out of the hotel and you were right on the main street, with all sorts of restaurants, shops, and massage parlours, art galleries etc to choose from. At night there was live music...and nearby were balinese dancing venues. Such a great spot, no need to worry about a taxi- as you are right in the middle of the action. I was especially impressed by a band that played some latin music (Mana) down the street.

The staff were great, and very coordinated. The main hotel pool was very pretty, but we didn't need it. Breakfast was good.

Felt like we were the only people there, but we did see others when we had breakfast in the restaurant. Boyfriend walked down to the monkey forest.

We each got a free massage at the hotel, and they were excellent...we took them on the last day, and they were better than most that we had in town (which were already good), and the technique was a little different.

I love Ubud and really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Recommended.

Would highly recommend. Someone told us about gslace and we were very happy with staying there
Service and attention to detail excellent
Great location- in the heart of the city but rooms are positioned far away from the city noise
Small but nice pool
Beautiful garden and surroundings
Yoga ( front desk staff member) was helpful and very nice
Have tasty and wide variety for breakfast, afternoon tea is also included
Would recommend staying there maybe after a long and tiring trip to relax and just enjoy the city
