This is a truly fantastic property. Despite their $300/night rate, I would rank this hotel among my top 10 hotels for sure, putting it up there with hotels that run upwards of $1500/night.  You get that high end resort feel--extremely attentive staff and all the amenities you could ask for.

Check-in here is similar to most upscale hotels, where they ask you to sit in the lobby, offering you tea and snacks while they process your credit card and travel documents somewhere else. No standing around and waiting with your bags at a counter.  Then one of the hotel staff leads you down to your room (after the bags have already been taken) and goes through each of the amenities.


The rooms here are just to die for.  They are incredibly spacious, yet still warm and inviting.  We booked their Premier Villa with a private pool and the "valley view."  This was a great choice.  The giant room consists of an entire wall of windows on both sides of you--one side facing the valley (with no real ability for people to look in since there's nothing out there but jungle) and a lush courtyard on the other side, behind the bed and also behind the shower, which opens up to an outdoor shower as well.  The first part of the room contains a large king sized bed with mosquito netting (though we didn't really need it) and a large sitting area with a couch, coffee table, and breakfast nook where they have complimentary coffee, tea, and fruit, as well as a mini-bar.  There are two very large open areas in the bathroom so that there is a "his and hers" closet, vanity and sink area, and then in the last room is a large soaking tub and separate shower and enclosed toilet. The best thing about the villa was the large deck with private infinity edge plunge pool.

The staff at the Komaneka were incredibly attentive and so very sweet and polite.  They do a great job with the timing of cleaning and turning down the room; I'm pretty sure that once we arrived for breakfast in the mornings  they immediately sent someone down to clean the room because it was neat and tidy every time we came back after breakfast.  Then they did a lovely turndown service in the evenings, where they closed all the curtains (there are a lot of windows) and laid out slippers and a nightgown for each person (and the sleepwear they provided was actually really comfortable!).

Another great part about this resort is that the breakfast is included.  They offer almost what amounts to a 3 course breakfast.  You are offered a menu that changes daily, where you pick one thing from each of the three categories.  The first option typically consisted of either a fruit plate or fruit and yogurt. The second was an option for a basket of bread and pastries or a selection of cereal.  Then your "main" course category had four options, consisting of things like avocado toast, traditional Balinese porridge, eggs and sausage, and Eggs Benedict.  They also had freshly squeezed juices that changed daily and offered coffee or tea.   

One thing that most people don't know about the Komaneka chain of resorts is that they're actually owned by a local Balinese family.  Pretty neat, right? What's best is that you really get that family feel from the resorts.  Each of them are rather quaint, with only 20-30 rooms at each resort, so you not only feel like you have the resort to yourself but the staff is so attentive, again making you feel as though you are their most important guest.  

Room Tip: Get a room with a private pool and a valley view

What a hotel!!! The service, food, and rooms are as nice as all the reviewers say they are. I thought we were taking a little gamble in not staying at the Ritz or Four Seasons in Ubud. Save yourself some money and stay here. With Balinese ownership and all Balinese employees, this hotel concept really does support the local economy. Also for what you get in service, room, and food, this property is probably $200 a night cheaper than a big brand hotel offering the same things. This was the nicest property we stayed at during our Bali portion of the trip.

Pro-tip: Booking with Amex and using Amex to pay incidentals saved us 20% on food at the hotel. Given the already reasonable prices on food at the hotel, this was a very good deal. Had wonderful Balinese crispy duck for Thanksgiving Dinner. I am thankful for Komaneka! You will not be let down... this place lives up to the hype!

This hotel is wonderful. The staff are extremely friendly and embody exceptional service. They are willing to do whatever necessary to make your stay even better. The property is tucked away off the main road and provides awesome views from the pool/restaurant. The food is pretty good, they even rotate the breakfast menu every day. The dinner is good as well, but expensive compared to restaurants in the surrounding area.

The room we stayed in was the valley villa and WOW, it is a huge room with a decent sized private pool. We loved it. My only critique on the room was that the mattress was a little too firm for our liking as we prefer a softer mattress, but we overcame that by being active everyday and were very tired before going to bed.

The hotel also provides a long list of amenities for each room as well from bug spray to a hair dryer. They also have a N'espresso machine which is awesome for the morning. They also deliver food to your room at no extra charge which came in handy when we would need to leave before breakfast was open at the restaurant.

Overall, this place is beautiful and has a staff that proved a warm welcome and exceptional service.

Room Tip: Villa room was extremely spacious, private, and luxurious.

From start to finish, our stay at the Komaneka at Tanggayuda was fantastic. We were greeted upon arrival by several staff members, served a drink, then given a full tour of the pristine grounds. Our room was clean, spacious, and complete with thoughtful details like a cake and tea service! A full daily complementary breakfast and afternoon tea (no expense spared) was available in-room or outdoors, at guests' request. No shortage of food and treats while staying at the Komaneka.

Minor cons, which certainly did not detract from our stay, should be mentioned. Ubud is in the jungle so there were bugs around, though staff was prompt in cleaning up dishes to prevent ants. The room was a bit dark...romantic, perhaps? I believe that they have additional lights available, upon request.

While the grounds and amenities are stunning, the service and staff were truly the most impressive. Staff was available to bring mosquito repellent, provide drivers, daily itineraries, and fix any issue. I feel like this says it all: we were running late to catch our flight (our fault) via the hotel car service when the front desk called to let us know that we'd forgotten a pair of shoes. The car pulled over and waited while hotel staff DROVE TO MEET US ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WITH THE SHOES!!! What!? Who does that? These people are true professionals and take their jobs very seriously. Do yourself a favor and make sure to stay at this hotel. You won't regret it.

Dear E O,

Warmest greetings from Komaneka at Tanggayuda

Thank you very much for the great reviews to Komaneka at Tanggayuda, Thank you for share your great experience start from arrive until departure, That was fabulous experience for you and great compliment for our resort.
Our location is in the jungle and all must prepare for jungle experience specially for natural animal like frog, lizard, ants, wild rooster and etc but just do not worry to much because our family will take care about that. Our room not too dark but "romantic" like you said and of course we prepare the extra light based on request

Once again thank you for the excellent review and look forward to welcoming you back home in the future to Komaneka at Tanggayuda Family
