The monkey taking a selfie of us was my favorite part. I love the sacred monkey Forrest. Stunning and beautiful. The monkeys are cared for. And friendly. Be respectful of the monkeys. Although friendly they are still wild animals.

From Kuta, it takes 90min, better to leave early, bring raining nylon poncho , it will rain heavily so mo need to stop just watch out your steps, at main entrance get fish food with less than a a dollar, enjoy fish feeding, don't take any food with you, it is a snall jungle, follow instructions and dint lose your way.

Be careful Of taking up the additional option of having a selfie taken with the monkeys. Aside from issues with potential animal exploitation one of our group was bitten and needed rabies shots. The first aider in the park said they had had no cases of rabies but the Dr in Ubud told us they see 6 - 9 cases a week and have rabies shots available in the practice in case you need them

The monkeys are absolutely adorable but please note that the review reflects the fact that the monkeys here and at other temples and sanctuaries do scratch and bite. I was literally standing three feet from a monkey minding my own business (I did not make eye contact) and a monkey ran over and bit me. Please do not take photos with these animals, pet or handle them as you will be encouraged to do by the staff. These are wild animals and the doctor at the clinic I went to admitted that monkey bites are on the rise post Covid as the monkeys are no longer used to so many people. If you must go, please wear long sleeves and long pants. My attire mitigated the severity of the bite. But monkey bites are not unusual in Bali so please think twice before visiting.

Be VERY CAREFUl……..
Me my husband and two boys. went on a day tour which included the Monkey sanctuary with our tour guide. We sat on a wall nearby a guide who was feeding the monkeys. The monkey playfully sat on my shoulder. I stayed very still as instructed however the monkey must have got scared which led to it bitting my hand.
I also saw that another lady was bitten on her shoulder within a few minutes of me.
My guide took me to the clinic on site where they put idodein on the wound and wrote my name in a book. They told me that when the monkeys die in the forest they check them for rabies and no monkeys have been found to have it and not to worry. However when you have been bitten by a monkey you do worry ! Our insurance was great and arranged an agent to track down the rabies injection which we found in Omsa Medic in
Ubud. (Nr the monkey sanctuary) The dr there said that they have had 5 people in a week have been in with monkey bites from the sanctuary. They told us that with Covid the monkeys aren’t used to being around humans and have become scared.
Be very careful going here…… I don’t blame anyone they are wild animals. If I could re wind the clock I wouldn’t have gone it’s been stressful trying to sort this all out……..

I am very wary of animal related tourist attractions, especially in South East Asia, on the grounds of welfare & exploitation, but I have to say I was impressed with this place.
The monkeys have lots of space, the are well looked after & could easily leave the Sanctuary if they wanted to.
Not sure why tourists complain about a monkey bite, when clearly they are wild animals & there are signs everywhere telling you not to touch?
Along with the monkeys there are some really ancients trees, monuments & statues to look at. Well worth 80,000 RP.

Fun and entertaining afternoon.
Monkeys are very well look after and cared for.
Watching them was a treat to see how they interact with each other.
Despite warnings not to feed monkeys, tourists still do for selfies and them are in sheer shock when bitten.
These are wild animals and should be treated as such.
They are not petting animals.
Was a wonderful experience and "shout out" to staff that are viable and always assist when needed.

We enjoyed our tour through the monkey forest. It was enjoyable and we were able to feed the monkeys and that sat in our lap. I would recommend only doing this with staff at the forest.

This is an interesting place to visit. Obviously there are lots on monkeys and some cute little baby monkeys.
It also has temples, and a really nice series of board walks.
It was better than I expected.
If you are in Ubud put it on your list
