Komaneka at Monkey Forest
Ranked #13 of 199 Hotels in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 October 2017

Wow. I just returned from two weeks in Bali and my final 3 nights were spent at Komaneka at Monkey Forest. Ordinarily, I am very particular about hotels and identity a bunch of things which can be improved. Komaneka at Monkey Forest is potentially the closest thing to my perfect hotel.

From the moment I arrived at the hotel I was greeted by Dewi and provided a Welcome drink while the paperwork was prepared (the ginger tea was so delicious I bought some).

The feeling of "home" was felt throughout my stay. It made such a difference being addressed by name by many of the staff and receiving a "welcome home" whenever returning to the hotel. Other hotels attempt this, but the cynic in me often feels it is over-rehearsed and fake - This was NOT the case at Komaneka at Monkey Forest. All of the staff took a genuine interest in how my day was and wanted to ensure that my stay was as perfect it was.

My room was totally incredible and overlooking the pool area (209). Every detail in the room was present including international power adapters, Apple TV, cookies (which were delicious), insect repellent. Certainly my favourite hotel room I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Huge bath with glass roof, large shower, dressing area and lovely patio area.

On my return to the hotel after a sunrise hike to Mount Batur Volcano I was greeted by staff offering to bring breakfast to my room immediately so I could then get some sleep. Outstanding service and delicious breakfast was served within 15 minutes.

The hotel was also super quiet and relaxing despite being so centrally located - perfect!

I racked my brains on how it is possible for such a perfect hotel to improve further and it was a struggle so I had to scrape the barrel; Maybe an upgraded Apple TV (currently a couple of generations old)

Thank you again to Dewi and all of the staff for being absolutely amazing and if I am ever in Ubud again I will certainly stay - Please open more Komaneka hotels around the world too!

Room Tip: Near the pool was great and quiet unlike some hotels where poolside can be a little noisy

Not our usual accommodation for a stay at Ubud, but a little luxury at the end of another visit to Bali was the perfect ending. Excellent accommodation complemented by friendly, hospitable staff and great food at reasonable prices. Loved the spectacle of the ducks being herded through the adjacent rice paddies morning and afternoon. An oasis of good karma in the centre of the hustle and bustle of Ubud. Suksma (thank you) to all the staff, particularly to Wistri.

Room Tip: A room with a view of the rice paddies is recommended.

This hotel is one of our favorites in Ubud. It's right in the middle of the centre and also really close to 'monkey forest'. So a lot of restaurants, shops,... everything is very close! The villas are located way from the busy street so you don't have to bother about the noise. The property has an amazing garden and pool. The villas were outstanding, true luxury. They have a big bathroom en have all the luxury items like apple tv ect. There is also (free) afternoon tea. You can chose if you want your breakfast in the restaurant or in the villa. The breakfast is really delicious and everyday they have other options. Something special about this hotel (this is for every Komaneka resort), is that they are really familiar. So they call you with your first name, what is something we appreciated because it really felt like home. We really enjoyed our stay here! You pay a little bit more, but it's worth it!

We had three nights at Komaneka at Monkey Forest this September and it was the best three night stay I have ever had at any hotel.

When we arrived at Komaneka we were greeted by the lovely Balinese staff who brought us Ginger & Lemongrass tea and cold flannels. They took us to our suite which was incredible. A king size bed with a heart of petals on top. The bathroom itself was as big as the bedroom itself with a huge free standing bath and walk in shower. We had a lovely balcony that we could sit out on in the evening and listen to all the wonderful sounds of Bali.

The breakfasts where wonderful and they alternated the menu each day, nothing was too much for them.

The pool area was almost in the jungle, it was a wonderful experience to swim in there.

Would definitely come back!!
