Historical Traveller Reviews of Kamandalu Resort and Spa Hotel
Crumbling Charmfrom fishclic
My main gripe is that it would have been a fantastic hotel once but it's really falling apart, especially the older rooms. A rumour was circulated during our conference that it'd been closed for 10 years and reopened just for our meeting. Probably not true, but from the condition of the rooms, it was nearly believable. Sockets falling out of walls, broken drawers, motheaten tapestry and creaky floors. Showers with no hot water and slippery moss-covered outdoor showers. You don't want to know about some of the muck that floated up from the poorly maintained private pools....
All in all I'm not very sure that it's worth the rack rate.
Lovely Resortfrom yuyuho
The buffet breakfast was very good, however 2 of the nights we stayed, the resort had a lower occupancy so we had a la carte breakfast, but it was plentiful and delicious.
The pool has a swim up bar which was really cool and the lobby was like a palace. There was nothing we disliked about this property and I would definately go back if I go to Ubud.
The property has a shuttle to Ubud centre which takes about 10mins so we did not have problems getting around. Even if you need to get a taxi, it only costs about AUD4 to AUD5. There are many nice local shops and restuarants in Ubud centre, also there is a market and along Monkey Forest Rd there are many places where you can get very cheap massage, facial or hair cut - about AUD10 for 1 hour massage.
Overall, Kamandalu is a very nice and stylish property in a great location with a stunning hillside view The villas provides privacy and relaxation and would be great for couples.
Somewhat disappointingfrom Blankii
I guess the biggest disappointment with Kamandalu was that is promised a lot, but I don’t think it quite lived up to the 5 star status. The service, whilst acceptable, was certainly not 5 star standard. On one occasion we ran out of toilet paper and rang house keeping to ask for more. About 2 hours later the toilet paper hadn’t arrived, so I called again to find out what was going on and it arrived within 3 minutes! Obviously in this case someone just forgot and I’m reluctant to crucify people more making an honest mistake, but this was really just one example of the lack of attention to detail. Don’t get me wrong, the service wasn’t poor, it just didn’t wow me like many other places I’ve stayed in Asia.
One other big gripe I had was with the bathroom. It was small and cramped to the extent that two people would find it difficult to use it at the same time. Worse of all, the indoor shower had absolutely no water pressure whilst the outdoor shower had no hot water, making it virtually impossible to have a proper shower.
Having said all that, I can’t honestly say that this is a bad place to stay. Far from it. The grounds are lovely, the pool area fantastic, the breakfast was pretty good and the room was reasonably large (with the exception of the aforementioned bathroom). The private courtyard and outdoor daybed were also very nice – great for a relaxing afternoon nap.
All in all I think that if you go to Kamandalu without too many expectations, you won’t be disappointed. It’s good mid-level accommodation with some nice touches. If you’re expecting a wonderful romantic holiday where you’re pampered and treated like royalty, I’d recommend you find somewhere else to go.

Perfect Ubud Hotelfrom bbdeluca
When we arrived, the hotel had a better room available, so they upgraded us. We were impressed with the room. Private outdoor shower, comfy bed, outdoor day bed. It was dreamy.
We were there for Nyepi Day, which is a great time to be in Ubud to see the festivals. However, the power is shut off for this, so all the hotels run on generators. For some reason the power shortage was affecting the air conditioner in our room that night. Without hesitation, the hotel offered to upgrade us again.
I can't begin to describe the luxury my husband and I enjoyed for the next 2 nights. We were like two kids who had been given the keys to a candy store. Private villa with infinity pool overlooking ravine, huge outdoor living room, outdoor bed, indoor bed, outdoor shower, indoor tub, huge bed, private garden, etc.
Needless to say, the staff went out of their way to help us have a great relaxing vacation. Luckily for us, this was the end of our trip, otherwise they would have set the bar to high for us to have enjoyed the other places we stayed.
Pool Villafrom lubalips
decent hotelfrom dmitry2009
our garden villa was very nice - with huge outdor shower and nice bale and garden. the bathtube was in marble and all amenities were really nice. four poster bed was great. staff is wonderful
on the negative side, brkf is nothing special( rather on mediocer side) and tennis court facilities are horrible for such a level of resort.
I tried the spa and it was good even though one can find the same quality massage in the donwtown for 7$ rather then 40$ as changed by the hotel
overall - good value and nice place but I have seen at least 5 resorts in ubud which are much better

Try the Cascades Restaurant If you get a chance to eat at the Cascades Restautant at the Viceroy Hotel, you will not be dissapointed. Now rated one of the best restaurants in Asia
