Como Shambhala Estate, Ubud Indonesia, Bali
The luxurious Como Shambhala Estate, seemingly carved out of the jungle, is known for its impeccable service and a wide range of rejuvenating activities and treatments, all curated to make your stay as relaxing as possible.
There is a wide range of beautifully decorated rooms, villas, and suites. Choose from 11 villa options that all come with their own private pool and unique design, including a treetop villa that looks over the Ayung River below, and the Umanona villa with views of the magical Mount Batu Karu styled on traditional Majapahit palaces.
Indulge in daily yoga, pilates and meditation classes or sample the Como Shambhala’s signature massage and beauty therapies. Or take a morning trip to the nearby temple and watch the sunrise over the Balinese volcanoes for a truly unforgettable experience. Dining at the estate’s restaurant will introduce you to a fresh take on healthy Balinese dishes but, don’t fret, you won't be missing out on any authentic flavours.
The estate is far larger than it initially appears and we really recommend you take a bike to leisurely explore the surrounding marigold fields and rice paddies.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
10 out of 10 for the service we received... The organisation and planning of our trip was excellent. The first week involved quite a few activities and due to his planning everything went like clockwork. We never had to think about anything which made the holiday stress free!
