Great views but seriously that’s where it ended. Pool looked great purely because of the view, on closer inspection it was really dirty but thought we wanted that ‘special’ photo, we quickly changed our mind. Then we went to the toilet , one was totally...filthy the other two slightly better but given a choice we wouldn’t have used them but in desperation we’d committed. The towels that you pay for I wouldn’t have used to clean the floor, they were stained and filthy. You get half your entrance fee towards food , based on reviews we’d read we were happy to order food , the food was warm when it arrived, the duck was dry which is pretty hard to achieve and the two who had chicken in their meals now have Bali Belly . The trip up there will provide us with a talking point and nervous laughter for years due to the bald tires and a burnt out clutch and overall shocking driving ! This is a beautiful spot but our expectations were probably too high. I hope they sort it out, as it’s a real shame that this was our worse meal in Bali and the whole place needed a good pressure wash and bleaching !More

Our visit to Monkey Bar was very enjoyable. The views are absolutely stunning and the pool and bar are designed to allow full enjoyment of the vista. For 100000IDR ($10AUD) pp you get entry and you can either use all the entry price towards food...credit, or if you swim then half of it is your pool fee and you get a towel. We had a lovely lunch here, and the pool was very refreshing.More

Enjoyed stay at Bella Kita and time at The Monkey Bar - the food was good and staff were good - BUT, i queried the unusually HIGH total charges for 2 1/2 days tvia email - 5 weeks later, no response, no conclusion - the...Aust booking agent quoted 'karma' and that I needed to go to the Bar directly, to query and get copies of charges. The Aust booking agent at one stage, offered to pay me the difference - then appears to have put it in the 'too hard' basket. I was disputing the high amount, not the whole bill - I believe I was overcharged by $250-$300 - I've calculated meals for 2, 40 Bintangs, cocktail, rums and additional breakfast cost x 2 - on top of that - I have 2 x incorrect invoices/charges, for an additional nights stay at Bella Kita - BOTH amounts on invoice, are NOT the amount I paid in rupiah:) the difference was refunded and deposited into my account - They appear to have gone silent regarding the large food/beverage bill. If I was to be supplied itemised account, and found the charges to be correct, I would happily recant my review and apologise for any misunderstanding - Unfortunately, they have not been forthcoming - Was also told by Aust booking agent ' this enquiry is causing stress to the staff ' - what about the stress to me, having to continually contact for any updates, whilst i'm on holiday - and then expect me, to go there myself - and incurr further return transport costs and time out of my holiday. I'd been to the Monkey Bar on a number of occasions - I believe visit prior, the bill was queried also - (Not by me)More

We had no idea what to expect. 100,000 rp entry per guest. 50,000 for food and the other 50,000 for swimming in the pool. The place has the most amazing views, friendly staff, great food and just a genuine feeling of caring about what they...do. Fantastic coffee (even with a bit of latte art). Our kids loved it, we loved it. So very much worth the trip to nowhere.More

I have lived not far from the Monkey Bar for 8 years and had never visited until yesterday. What a dreadful short coming, on my part, that was. So today I hiked up to it from sea level. It’s such an idyllic location with a...fantastic view with a great infinity pool taking in the scenery and of course a splendid bar. For dinner I had fish of the day, which was cooked to perfection, presented well and delicious too. Prices were completive but given the isolation fair. The staff were on the ball, attentive, polite and efficient. You need to pay an entrance fee of 75,000 Rp, to deter sight seers, but you get 50,000 Rp off your food bill and you also get a towel for the pool. I shall be there again.More

This bar was recommended to us and it takes a bit of time to get there but is did not disappoint. The view from the bar and from in the pool is terrific. Such a lovely place to have a drink and relax. There was...not a lot to complain about here the service was excellent, the food good and the beer cold. Our only suggestion for those who come to this great bar is get there early as it does get busy and for good reasons.More

had a nice time spending a couple hours at the monkey bar. The view is spectacular and the whole place is lovely. Food on the expensive side, was nice but nothing to rave about. Kids enjoyed the pool but lack of shade was a let...down for people who need to watch the kids in the pool. Will love to come back again next tripMore

Hi there, I could say that it take only 1hr from Ubud by car, and from Nusa dua approximately 2.5 hrs but it is depends on the traffic as well.
