An oasis of calm in one of Bali’s major cultural centres
History & culture
Culture vultures and nature lovers will relish staying at the Komaneka Resort at the Monkey Forest in the heart of vibrant Ubud.
As one of Bali's major arts and cultural centres, there is plenty for you to explore from Balinese traditional arts and crafts to temple hopping to Ubud's natural beauty, highlighted by the Ubud Monkey Forest.
This sacred nature reserve houses hundreds of monkeys amid a jungle landscape reminiscent of the Indiana Jones films. Hindu temples within this forest, including Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal are still in use today for cremation ceremonies.
The Komaneka resorts have been developed by a local family who remain dedicated to the promotion of Indonesian and Balinese art. The Komaneka Fine Art Gallery reflects this ambition by showcasing local emerging artists.
Local Balinese touches are found throughout the site with alang-alang thatched roofs, paras and other Indonesian stones as well as rich locak furnishings to lend a Balinese vibe to add to the gracious Balinese hosplitality.
We like: The traditional Balinese artistic touches.
Best for: A relaxing break in the hustle and bustle of Ubud.
