Stayed at the Shambhala for my 50th birthday weekend, 12 of us in total. This IS the best location and the most perfect layout , catering for both an intimate and a group gathering. I hired the entire property which was sensational, very peaceful and private, and we all loved the whole outdoor relaxed atmosphere which is what this property... More

We stayed in the Shiva Studio and had the most wonderful weekend. Joanna was incredibuly accommodating and I would highly recommend Shambhala to anyone -- I even hope to go back as often as possible. We arrived early and Joanna was so welcoming and even let us check in early and late on our last day. I cannot say enough... More

We booked last minute at Shambhala and were only able to book 'Shanti' for our honeymoon. However, when we arrived and Joanna realised it was our honeymoon and there was obviously a cancelation or something, we were very kindly moved to 'Samadhi' with a bottle of champagne. This is possibly the ultimate place for a couple to hangout for a... More

Please note this review is based only on Shiva Studio. My husband booked the Shiva Studio underestimating the room size based on the high price of the room. Shiva Studio is tiny with approximately 1m room around the bed before you hit the wall. It was a little rainy on the weekend we went and we found it exceptionally claustrophobic... More

I've stayed in some great resorts in Asia, Europe, the Pacific etc... and this is a gem in my own back yard - only an hours flight from Sydney. Shambhala is a great boutique resort, I think there are 7 or so suites, each with there own character - we booked the "Shanti" room. Some of the suites are absolute... More

We stayed at this boutique accomodation for 3 days - we wished it could have been a few days longer. We rented the one bed deluxe couples treehoue "Samadhi" which we found to be very private and on the whole well appointed. Our treehouse was one of only four in the retreat. It is the only one with a connected... More

My wife and I stayed there for our honeymoon and words cannot describe how breathtaking the resort is...the privacy, the tranquil, the beauty and most importantly the friendly staff means we'll definitely be going back...Ibrahim & Suban
