Fantastic holiday, cannot fault anything. Highlights to me were: peace and calm, the food, the beauty of the location and the variety of activities. I’m telling all my friends about it and saying: embrace the opportunities, go with an open mind, take the calm home with you as much as you can whether it’s through yoga, stretching, whole food, or the memory of the lovely people you will meet there! Thank you Health and Fitness Travel for recommending COMO Shambhala to me! It was a life-changing experience.

Thanks to a system error during the reservation process with their sister resort, we were upgraded to this huge beautiful resort that I have always wanted to stay in. Stayed here for a total of 3 nights in their 2 bedroom private retreat pool villas. Their retreat villas are more modern than their reaidences. But having walked past their residences, they looked more local and unique but less private.
On arrival, we were greeted warmly and brought on a tour of the grounds of the estate and then to the villa for a in-villa check-in. Our personal assistant was already there waiting to check us in and with our welcome drink. He helped to ensure that all the activities we booked are arranged. He was also helpful to answer all our queries. And greet us at our breakfast and remind us of our schedules.

This is a one of a kind resort with unmatched service and attention to details. We loved our stay here so much. The residence we stayed in was perfect. If feels like your own private home in Bali with a full time staf to keep it impecibley clean and meet your every need. The food, spa, grounds, service, pools, hikes and incredible natural beauty are not to be surpased and all in a magical and mystical location. This should not be a once in a lifetime experince because you will want to return long after you have departed, as I do. But, if you only have one opportunity to visit this should be that once in a lifetime destination in Indonesia.

My wife and I were staying at the sister property, Uma by Como, and decided to come by Como Shambhala for a visit and lunch. Boy are we glad we did!
Como Shambhala is immediately relaxing...it is just so beautiful, well appointed and the staff is highly trained and clearly service oriented. We were delighted to return for lunch down at the river and a day of relaxation. Makes us wish we had booked at Como Shambhala instead of Uma (which is a fine hotel, but not remotely comparable).

I first stayed at this estate in 2004 and eleven years later I still remember how I enjoyed my stay like it was yesterday. The first impression surely lasts forever. COMO Shambala Estate is a resort like any other resort in the area. It feels like it has its own atmosphere and its own charms. You can immediately feel it the moment you step in. This is my third time staying at the estate and its excellent service with its attention to detail are really unmatch with any resort I have stayed before. The appointed butler will help you in anything you need. The healthy menu will offer you the freshest ingredients you've ever tasted. The stay at COMO Shambala Estate will not only relax your body, but also your mind.
