“Just perfect.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

This was the second time Myself and my wife have stayed at the Komaneka Monkey forest, And we have already booked our next trip. This place cannot be faulted, Dewi and her team are the best in Bali, and we have stayed in many places. The feeling of this place is very Tranquil and yet the main road is only a short walk away, but you would never know it. All the staff go above and beyond and are a caring and professional team. Do yourself a favour and try this place on your next visit to Ubud....

Room Tip: All the rooms we have stayed in have been Fantastic.

Our first impression of Bali was a positive one thanks to all the staff at Komaneka Monkey Forest. We enjoyed 7 nights here and were sad to be leaving this great family. We moved on to Gili T and Jimbaran and the service did not come close to that of Komaneka @ Monkey Forest. We would highly recommend this place on excellent service & clean amenities. Everything was just easy and made the start to our holiday a great one. The hotel is situated in the centre for easy access to cafes and shopping. Everyday we were greeted with a warm smile and all staff made us feel like family. Nothing was difficult. BIG THANKS to Dewi & her team for their kindness & in making our stay a great one. A BIG THANKS also to our breakfast waiter Nyoman Swastika (I hope we got that right) - outstanding service and also for the balinese teachings. Will definitely be coming back xx thank you.

So cheap to get in to see the monkeys, was 2000 rupiah or $2 Australian (bargain!). Monkeys absolutely everywhere & plenty of opportunities to get some great photos of them. If you want photos of them on you, you will need to invest in some bananas at the front where the sell the tickets. They come close to all people, but much closer to those with bananas. Beware they will come up to you & try & pluck then out of your hands themselves. There was lots of screaming girls when we went! Well worth seeing if you enjoy animal attractions :)

This is a very good hotel right in the heart of town. If you like crisp, clean, international modernity, and don't mind the noise from the nearby bars, it will probably suit you. For me, it lacked character and felt more like a business hotel than a romantic destination. Rooms are spacious and pristine. Breakfast was well presented an there was good choice, but I didn't like the flavours in my omelette or banana bread. My girlfriend liked both. Service is good, but not exemplary. I found the bed too soft, and having gone to bed early was kept awake by the bass guitar next door. For your money, in my view you can do much, much better in Ubud and get a more 'Balinese ' experience for about half the price.

Room Tip: As far toward the back as possible. Bands at the Laughing Budda bar are pretty loud though finish ab...

Location, great food & nice room setting. For me...the people who make this place so special, polite, friendly, helpful.

Beautiful...beautiful staffs & i guess since people who works there are so nice, it makes everyone stays in this place automatically switch into friendly mood. If you're a Angry Bird..this is the right place for u. You find peace & lots of love, it calm you down & make you fall in love all over again.

Thank you Komaneka, AWESOME.

An oasis of calm and comfort - pampered and massaged. Splurge for a pool villa!

The staff are all very pleasant and helpful, great food in the restaurant, right in the center of town.

We were in pool villa 103, our friends in 101, both excellent.

Room Tip: Any pool villa, it's worth it!

Stayed here for 4 nights and prolonged the visit since we liked the place... Loved the ambience, location and the fantastic service. The afternoon tea was an unexpected and appreciated feature. The staff loves kids and pampered our 11 month baby who would disappear into the kitchen at every meal :)
I would definitely stay here again...
