COMO Shambhala in Bali advocates holistic health, combining modern science with ancient healing, offering signature massage and beauty treatments. The team includes a range of resident experts, including an oriental medicine consultant, an Ayurvedic doctor, and a yoga teacher. Guests can enjoy a number of outdoor activities at the estate such as hiking, climbing, yoga and aqua therapy. Many guests enjoy alone time or come with their partner. Residences are also ideal for families and groups.
The resort offers a 360-degree approach, with wellness programs tailored to your individual needs, all designed to heal mind, body and spirit. Guests can choose from three key wellness retreats, such as the “Ayurveda”, “Cleanse” and “Be Active” programs, with an additional “Bespoke” package designed with your specific needs in mind. They are all full board, and in each one you will have a private wellness consultation to kick-start your healing journey. The programs come with a number of therapies, such as private qigong, tai chi, meditation or yoga lessons, as well as customized massages and aqua therapy sessions.

WHAT WE LOVE
- The resort is breathtaking. Even though there aren’t that many rooms, the property is quite vast. Spend at least three days here to explore everything.
- The natural spring pools are magical, and the water is said to have healing qualities.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
- COMO Shambhala Estate is surrounded by jungle. There can be the occasional monkey, snake or squirrel that come to say hi.
- Each room/villa is unique in its design. If you spend more than a week here, you should definitely try out other rooms.
30 rooms (including 5 residences, 5 retreat pool villas, and 5 private villas).
There are two main pools; the aqua therapy and the lap pool. Guests can also enjoy the natural spring pools on their way down to the Ayung River. And residences also have their own pool.
Because of its 360-degree approach to wellness, the spa plays a key role in achieving the guest’s goals of relaxation or optimal performance. All treatments are tailored to one’s specific needs.
