Located on the South East side of the Indonesian island of Bali, Hotel Komune Resort sits on top of the black sand beach and world class surfing wave, Keramas. Equipped with two pools, a beach club, spa, two restaurants, day excursions and a yoga and fitness center you could spend your whole vacation at Komune and be completely satisfied!

Hotel Komune was our first stop in Bali and we had never been to Indonesia before! We arranged for the hotel to pick us up at the airport (and I highly recommend you do the same – the airport is madness) and it was about an hour drive to the resort.
On the outskirts of the resort it doesn’t look like much but just wait until you get inside! Hotel Komune is a jungle oasis perched on top of a black sand beach with the most amazing sunrises and vibes!
Side note: the Balinese people are some of the nicest people I have ever met and that especially includes the staff at Hotel Komune. Every single staff member is extremely friendly and helpful. They really want you to enjoy your stay – and come back!
We stayed in a standard resort room which included a queen size bed, couch, air conditioning, television, large shower, bathroom and board rack outside your door. The rooms are pretty small but if you are on a budget it won’t really matter because you will want to spend all of your time enjoying the resort amenities.
Other accommodations at Hotel Komune include the family suite. All of the amenities of the resort room but 30% bigger with a separate living room. The beachfront suits each have their own private pool, marble bath and insane views! And lastly, the private beach villas. You have the choice of a one, two or three bedroom villa. Each villa has its own lounge area, pool, and kitchen. Plus there is more privacy if you opt to book one of these.
The main pool and beach club are right on the black sand beach called Keramas. This is a great thing considering you can’t sit on the beach during the day because the sand is HOT. I mean really hot! You’ll most likely end up splitting your time between the beach club and the spa 🙂 (more on both below!)
Eat at Hotel Komune
The Health Hub
Situated in the center of the resort, The Health Hub is surrounded by lush jungle. Each meal is prepared with the freshest ingredients (some grown on site) and the menu caters towards vegan, vegetarian, and pescatarian diets.
We had some seriously delicious and healthy meals here on multiple occasions.
Come down early and watch the sunrise while you drink your coffee at the Beach Club restaurant. After yoga or a dip in the pool come back for a smoothie or full breakfast.
During sunning hours, alternate between sipping coconuts poolside and floating on the florescent floats in the pool all day.
And in the evening, sit down for happy hour or dinner as the stars come out to dance across the sky!
Activities at Hotel Komune
Keramas is your backyard while you are staying at Hotel Komune. The best time to score waves here are from November to March when the swell is coming from the East.
Situated on a lava reef, Keramas is tide and wind sensitive! Best early in the morning and on an incoming high tide.
The Beach Club
Where you will spend your days unless you opted for a suite or villa with a private plunge pool. We came to Hotel Komune during wet season, in February, so getting a lounger at the pool wasn’t trouble but I would suspect if the hotel is at full capacity you would want to get here on the early side to claim your spot for the day!
The circular pool sits right on top of the beach. You can use the really fun florescent colored floats in the pool. Order drinks and food right from your lounger… this is paradise!!!
There are two yoga chalet’s. I opted for a early morning yoga practice at the beach chalet. Warm breeze and the sound of the ocean waves really made this practice special! Plus the yoga instructor was amazing.
OK, you’re in Bali. You can not leave Bali without getting a massage everyday. (Kidding! But I think we had one almost every other day.) The Day spa includes all types of services you would expect at a regular full service spa. (note: I recommend bringing your own nail polish color – their color selection was bare and with not the best colors…)
Fitness Center and Pool
There was an amazing lap pool we swam in a few mornigs during our stay at Hotel Komune. There are even loungers slightly submerged in the water… need I say more. The Pool area (next to The Health Hub) is very tranquil and relaxing. Also not super popular like the Beach Club pool!
We didn’t have enough time to do anything else but bum around and relax while we stayed at Hotel Komune but they have multiple day excursions or special events you can sign up for daily. These will cost you extra but they take care of everything for you!
Overall, we really loved staying at Hotel Komune and thought it was the PERFECT first stop to relax and recharge after a long travel day and before we start exploring the rest of Bali!
