Komaneka at Monkey Forest
Travel Blogs from Ubud
Another early morning flight, waking up at 3am, whisking through empty streets to the airport. After a layover in Kuala Lumpur for a few hours, I suddenly find my self looking out the window at the island of Bali a piece of lush land protruding out of the mass of blue ocean surrounding it. From the plane sandbars and coral areas can be seen I …
Embarcandonos en la lancha en Gili Trawangan, nos dejo solo hora y media en Padangbai, Bali donde la gente de Gilicat nos esperaba para llevarnos al centro de la isla. Mas precisamente a la localidad de Ubud centro religioso y cultural local.

The trip from Denpasar to Ubud takes about an hour, and the last part of it at least is quite pretty. The Komaneka Resort where we are staying is on Monkey Forest Road and a great find. We were upgraded to suites on arrival and so have the two best rooms in the house. They're very big, near the pool and on the 2nd floor with large …
... the town, and as we arrive at the gateway to the forest we can see a fair number of the Balinese long-tailed macaque monkeys already, seemingly waiting to pounce on unsuspecting tourists looking for food. We head in, Linda somewhat wary after our encounter with aggressive monkeys in China a couple of months ago, but it’s a busy place (hence there are more targets available for the monkeys!) so things seem like they’ll be OK. There are quite a few of ...
This morning, Wayan picked me up and I went to Studio Perak where I'd previously booked myself onto a silver jewellery class. Some of the other volunteers were there too (even though they didn't say they were doing it) so it was nice to see them too. Last night I was musing as to what I was going to make and decided on making a ring (despite already owning 25 very beautiful silver rings). I had an idea of what I wanted to make so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Komaneka at Monkey Forest Ubud
This was my second stay at Komaneka, intentionally. The facilities are extremely well-maintained and comfortable, the elegance is understated, and the staff is almost overwhelmingly friendly, helpful, attentive and responsive.
my wife and i where travelling with our 6 children and needed to get away from the shopping and hussel of kuta, so we all travelled to ubud for a few days in jan 07.Not having booked anywhere we looked at some hotels but didn't really like them .We wanted something looking over rice fields and with a nice pool and friendlly staff.
Treated like Royalty!
Having just stayed at the Komaneka, Ubud for a week, we would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. The room with private pool was nicely decked out! It is a serene, beautiful hotel well situated in the heart of Ubud with all modern amenities. The staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast included was delicious with a few good choices (including eggs). We tried the restaurant for dinner on two occasions and the food was delicious and fresh. Best hotel we've stayed at in Bali!
Have just returned from 3 days at Komaneka Resort and having travelled extensively both on pleasure and leisure, i must rank it as one of the most pleasant 3 days of my life!
I just returned from a 5 night stay at the Komaneka Resort in the center of Ubud.
We stayed in a Valley View Pool Villa and it was the equal of all the competitors in Ubud. The Amandari and the Four Seasons Sayan may have the name but this little known gem is their equal.
Wonderful place!! Would go there again!
We were recently in Ubud for a three night stay at the Komaneka Tanggayuda (Valley View Pool Villa) and had a wonderful time. The room was immaculate, tastefully decorated and most importantly - clean! Service at this hotel was fantastic and all the hotel staff were friendly and respectful. We could not have asked for better accomodations or better service! In-room dining or dining by our private plunging pool was not at all a problem for room service. If you are looking for a small, quiet, romantic, and private place to stay for you and yours - this is it!
Very noisy, not recommended
We stayed only one night at KOMANEKA Resort which is considered in UBUD (BALI) as a high standard hotel. At first sight, it's paradise : beautiful rooms and swimming pool.
In our room, we could hear all the films our neighbours were watching, all their conversations... We did not sleep all night. When we closed our bathroom door, it made such a noise (SLAM). One of our neighbour told the hotel her bathroom doesn't work properly. Our tap water had problems too.
We will not recommend that hotel.
Never mind the Ants !
Nice resort with perfect location in the very center of Ubud, shops, restaurants and cafes, the market, the palace, monkey forest ... just around the corner. Balinese style, spacious rooms with private courtyards and traditional open air bathroom (the disadvantage: by night you have to share the bathroom with thousands of ants - but no worries, they disappear at sunrise). Nice pool to relax after exhausting hours of shopping and sightseeing. Spa looks very nice too, but didnt try out. A bit pricey like all upscale hotels in Ubud.
