Bali: Review of Komaneka at Bisma in Ubud


I sought recommendations from Tripadvisor where to stay in Ubud, and Komaneka at Bisma came up highly recommended with many positive reviews. Glad I heed their advice for this place did not disappoint. In fact, without hesitation, I give this hotel a perfect score of 10, and here are my reasons why.

1) Warm hospitality and friendly staff, always calling us by our names, saying hello & good morning and asking how our day was. Excellent service from everyone we came in contact with.

2. Beautiful, quiet location, affording great views yet close to town about 20 min walk or use their complimentary shuttle. A comfortable and welcoming lounge at the lobby to hang out, have a drink, listen to local music or watch the sunset. And inviting infinity pool to cool off on a very hot day.

9) Discounted rate by booking direct on their website, I think they gave us either 5 or 15% off (can’t remember for sure).

10) Recognition of our wedding anniversary and thoughtful parting gifts of shawl and cookies in special tin containers. How sweet!

There you have it, my 10 reasons why this place earned a perfect score. Our stay here was special, memorable and very enjoyable.  We were sad when we left and said goodbye to our very hospitable hosts that made our stay truly special.

You bet, we’ll come back to stay here again if we return to Bali.
