Our next stay in Bali was in the lovely Ubud area. We stayed at the Komaneka Rasa Sayang and were amazed at the beauty of the hotel. As we arrived at night, the driveway was covered with beautiful lights in the trees all the way up to the entrance of the hotel – it was magical! On arrival we were handed a welcome drink – a delicious fresh fruit mix which was also a lovely surprise!
Stepping into the room was out of this world – a large, beautiful bed decorated with rose petals, a relaxing area with sofa and TV, a storage room, a writing table, a very large balcony with seating, and a gorgeous large bathroom with a shower and bath.
We were provided with everything we could possibly need and more. When we arrived in our room, we were shown where everything was from water, the famous Komaneka cookies (which were delicious!), travel adaptors, room service (great, extensive menu), pyjamas and slippers, flip flops, bathroom amenities and more. They also provided us with a scented mosquito spray, which was one of the nicest I’ve ever smelt! I loved that we had these gorgeous pyjamas, robes and slippers to wear – it made our stay that little bit more special.
The Hotel Grounds
The pool area was underneath the restaurant of the hotel, with a convenient outside bar and seating area next to it. The pool was surrounded with loungers and fresh towels were provided on each bed for us. It had beautiful views around the grounds of the hotel which made you feel like you were in the middle of a jungle!
Food & Drink
We made our way to dinner, which was delicious – the food, wine and service were one of the best I’ve had. We both went for chicken satay served with pineapple rice and each had a dessert – I went for the chocolate lava cake which was amazing! I loved the way they presented all of the food and drinks we tried – everything that was served to us looked first class.
After having one of the most peaceful nights sleep, we made our way to breakfast which also did not disappoint. I had fresh fruit with yogurt and muesli, followed by poached eggs with salmon and bacon on an English muffin – delicious!
The staff made the whole trip extra special from the moment we arrived – everyone was extremely friendly and did everything to make our trip perfect.
The hotel is on Monkey Forrest Road, and the hotel provides free transport to and from most of the locations within Ubud town. You can also travel to any of the other Komaneka resorts to use their facilities if you wish. There was lots to do around the area with lots of bars, cafes and restaurants, however we spent most of our time relaxing at the hotel during our stay, as it was so peaceful. I felt like I was miles away from everything which was just what I needed for my holiday!
Safe to say we had an amazing trip here and would recommend to anyone who is travelling to Ubud anytime soon! As always, let me know if you have any questions 🙂
