Komaneka at Monkey Forest
Ranked #15 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for the first 3 nights of our holiday to Bali and it lives up to every good review on here. The staff couldn't do enough for you and the afternoon teas well and truely dragged me off the cake wagon. We had a day out with the driver who took us to see a couple of stunning temples, a waterfall and some beautiful rice fields in the foothills of the mountains further north on Bali which was unplanned but fortunately he wasn't booked out that day. We stayed in the pool villa 102 (if memory serves) had a wonderful view of the valley and, much to our delight, had a tree frog which seemed to have taken up residence on the support post in the outdoor seating area, where we enjoyed our breakfast on the first day. So anyone who is lucky enough to get this room, please be kind to fred ( my husbands name for the tree frog) :)

We stayed in komaneka monkey forest for 3 nights, I am very touched by the level of service of the staff in this hotel. The staff are all very helpful and are always very attentive to our requests.
I am very impressed also by the variety of breakfast options in this hotel. It is also very handy they have Apple TV in the room.

The location of this hotel is very convenient too. It's around 10 mins' walk to the Monkey Forest. If you are interested in trekking, you can also walk from the hotel to a beautiful trail, overseeing the valleys and rice fields in Ubud. This particular hotel does not have a panoramic view of the rice fields and valleys but I think the location is perfect for convenience.

If you prefer a more scenic option, I think the Komaneka has another hotel up on the hill which offers nice scenery.

Is it possible to have a Love Affair with a hotel?? Lol. This was our third stay in 3 years, again we had the same Pool Villa as last year - so it definitely seemed as if we were 'coming home'. The staff was, as always, perfect. A special mention to Yuli, a beautiful lady who is an excellent ambassador for the Komaneka Group. We cannot recommend this hotel enough - the accommodation, the service and the location is just amazing considering the very fair price. My only complaint is that I didn't stay there long enough...

Our first trip to Bali and we were very anxious about our stay but we quickly realised that Komaneka was like stepping into a relatives' home where nothing but the best was laid on for us. All the staff knew our names even if we hadn't been introduced. The attention to detail whether it was in the way the bed was decorated on our arrival, to the drinks and biscuits in the car that met us at the airport to the insect repellent in our room was beyond anything we have experienced before. The setting was superb and incredibly relaxing. The contrast to the noise and crowds on the streets of Ubud was totally unexpected and almost a spiritual experience once we entered the lobby and gardens. We will return and we will stay longer next time. Special thanks to Yuli.

We had 3 night stay here as a happy accident after accommodation we'd booked elsewhere was unacceptable.
Komaneka is like a balm to the soul and It had me at "Art Galley at the entrance". You have to know the adjoining boutique resort must be something a little different and it is.
Beautifully and mindfully placed into the local, natural landscape - attention to detail is outstanding.
We had 1 night in the suite (wonderful, huge bathroom) and 2 in the slightly smaller deluxe room (flower petal bath to greet us...sigh) which had a picture perfect views of a rice paddy.
Breakfast in the main open air pavilion and complementary afternoon tea by the pool was excellent.
Room service was well priced and delicious.
The spa is beautiful with treatment rooms opening to the surrounding gardens - a nice change from the usual dark rooms.
When it was noticed my friend was unwell one day, congee and fruit were bought to her with get well wishes.
All staff were gently solicitous.
Absolutely no negatives just a suggestion of slightly stronger light bulbs.
If the other properties of this group are anything like Komaneka Monkey Forest, you are in very good hands.
Too many other delightful touches to list - discover then youself.
So...stop looking, pay the very reasonable tariff and just book!

Room Tip: All rooms wonderful but probably preferred the slightly smaller Deluxe room for the beautiful rice p...

The hotels we stayed at in Bali just got better and better as we travelled around and this was probably at the top of the list. Ubud is a pretty busy town but this hotel although on a busy road has almost no traffic noise to disturb you. It is fairly close to the centre of the town and there are plenty of places to eat and drink (avoid Dirty Ducks restaurant - awful). It is a fairly small hotel and the rooms are all at ground floor level but the rooms are just perfect - large, clean, comfortable and very well designed. We only had breakfast here but there was a huge choice of freshly prepared food and it was a perfect start to the day. When checking out you can leave your luggage at reception and all in all the staff could not be more helpful in arranging taxis or offering general advice. There is a small pool at the far end of the site though we never had the chance to actually use it.
