I don't usually write reviews however this place surpassed all expectations. A beautiful and calm entrance with stunning statues of Buddha and Ganesh. All senses awaken with the incense sticks, soft music. With private areas for each cottage inclusive of loungers and hot tubs (and of course the private beach). A great get-away for some peace and quiet. Good facilities,... More

Chose Shambhala with the intention of creating the perfect setting for a surprise proposal to my girlfriend on the deck of the Samadhi Retreat. What I found in Property Manager Dierk was nothing short of AMAZING - he helped / arranged / photgraphed and at times even waited his way to the most magical night that my partner and I... More

The resort is beautiful, green and tranquil with a constant scent of incense through the air (that did tend to find it's way inside the accommodation, however we did have the windows open at times). The beach the resort backs onto is beautiful and convenient to reach! The manager, Dirk, was just wonderful. Charming and friendly you can have faith... More

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
