Komaneka Resorts is a collection of boutique hotels in Ubud, in the central highlands of Bali. Once known as a sleepy rural village of artists, Ubud today is a busy hub where world travelers flock to experience both traditional Balinese culture and the pleasures of a modern international lifestyle. The streets are crowded by both visitors and fabulous ceremonial processions.
Ubud brims with temples, small palaces, galleries, museums, spas, shops, and culinary experiences from market stalls to first-class restaurants. Under the patronage of the ruling noble family, Ubud's traditional Hindu Balinese rituals are among the most splendid on the island, and its traditional musicians and dancers are among the most renowned.
Komaneka is a family-owned business, founded, designed, and run by a young couple from Ubud. It all began as a fine arts gallery, specializing in high-end Balinese and Indonesian art. Rooms were added as an artists' residence. But it soon attracted visitors, and the founders decided to make Komaneka a hotel, today known as Komaneka at Monkey Forest, named for its address on the famous shopping-and-eating street Monkey Forest Road, which stretches from the main Ubud palace at the center of town to a sacred monkey forest at its southern end. The Komaneka Gallery remains one of the most important in Bali; and the hotel, which has been recently renovated, is still a tranquil oasis in shady gardens.
Next came Komaneka at Tanggayuda, beautifully situated amidst five hectares of tropical forest at the edge of a neighboring village, with views to a sacred volcano. Komaneka at Bisma, also on five hectares of forest, is remarkable for its vast unspoiled views near the center of town. The youngest resort is Komaneka at Rasa Sayang, also on the Monkey Forest Road, offering a fresh, contemporary lifestyle. And under construction now is Komaneka at Keramas, on the beach, some 20km east of Ubud.
Komaneka Resorts are distinguished by their handsome architecture, gentle Balinese hospitality, and outstanding value. The architecture and décor are simple but strong, natural yet stylish, where timber and chandeliers exist in harmony. The suites are large with luxurious bathrooms, and are designed as living spaces with five-star comfort. The resorts are furnished throughout with fine Indonesian art. Many of the suites have private pools. Both Komaneka at Bisma and Komaneka at Tanggayuda offer luxurious two-story residences. Every resort has a handsome spa with a wide range of spa and beauty treatments using natural ingredients.
Komaneka is a way into the magical world of Bali. Its hospitality arises from the Balinese Hindu practice of treating their gods like honored guests, with offerings of food, flowers, music, dance, and splendor. For this reason, many ordinary Balinese are accomplished dancers, musicians, and artists. The staff are happy to share with resort guests their skills in wood-carving, dancing, and making offerings, with free classes every afternoon. Komaneka also introduces the rich and savory world of Balinese and Indonesian cuisine. Guests are welcome to move freely among the resorts — perhaps going for swim at Bisma, breakfast or afternoon tea at Tanggayuda, a spa treatment at Rasa Sayang — making expanded use of the invitation to let Komaneka be 'your home address in Ubud'.
