We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful and friendly hotel in February. The staff is exceptional, the grounds are beautiful and peaceful and the rooms are clean, comfortable and well thought out. We could truly walk to the Monkey forest, temples, the market,the palace and all the restaurants and shopping you could ever want. It was also convenient for day trips. We both loved the spa and pool and the breakfast choices were delicious and varied and always freshly made. The free tea time was lovely too. We ate at the restaurant one night for dinner and had a delicious meal. I highly recommend a stay here.
Our room was gorgeous, the restaurant was good and the personal service extended by all was top notch. Mano Ayo, Ulan and Risma were especially helpful, but everyone was charming and helpful. So nice to be in the middle of busy and interesting town but off the street and quiet when it was time to go home. Hard to beat! Thank you all for a truly lovely stay!
Outstanding experience from check in to check out. Staff in all areas were friendly and attentive. Be sure to use the hotel driver service for daily tours. Rooms are large and comfortable - bathroom is big and well appointed.
Everything! Starting with the most important aspect of the experience is the staff. They are genuinely welcoming and would do anything to make your stay more comfortable. ! The villa is outstanding, very spacious and comfortable and has lots of storage and thoughtful details. The private pool and the view from the porch were fantastic gorgeous. The hotel is located in the center of Ubud (monkey forest street) yet is so quiet and peaceful when you’re inside. We loved that it feels every far away from the business when you’re inside, but step out of the hotel and you’re minutes away from all of Ubud’s best shops and restaurants.
I just got back from a girls' trip to Bali. We spent 7 days in Ubud and 3 days in Nusa Dua. We booked the Komaneka at Monkey Forest (there are several Komaneka locations) quite by accident. We had never been to Bali and really didn't have any idea of locations or how far apart things were. When we were met at the airport by Oka with cold towels, bottles water and even a cookie jar - we knew we were in the right spot! The drive from the airport is about an hour and the drivers are zipping around like crazy the whole time. Arriving at Komaneka was like finding an oasis in the middle of all the chaos of the streets of Ubud. We loved how close we were to everything, all the shopping/restaurants and of course monkey forest. But then we could sneak away to our hotel and it was all peace and quiet and the nicest staff. The staff took care of everything for us. We are not "crowd" people so we hired their transport most days and left early to beat the crowds at some of the locations. Our driver told stories, guided us through all the local customs and legends. There was always cold water in the car - it was amazing. We felt like royalty. The girls at the spa were fabulous - we each had 3 treatments over our 7days there! Our package included breakfast and dinner - the meals were delicious and fresh. We loved Komaneka so much that we tried to change our Nusa Dua hotel to a Komaneka beach location. I would absolutely stay at Komaneka again - with my family or friends. The location is idea. The staff was attentive. The food delicious. 5 star rating for sure!…
