Spending 4 days at Como Shambhala really reenergised my husband and me. The entire experience was just perfect, made even more memorable by the warm and generous attitude of our personal advisor, Ayu. A grateful thank you.

I wasn't a big fan of the design of the bed (quite difficult to get in & out as there was a huge wooden border around the bed), but... More

Great location, facilities, friendly staff etc etc. Not so great for the lone travellers as its a huge estate so you rarely see other guests to mingle. Ideal for a couple wanting to chill out on their own ...

We spent an amazing five days at Como to detox and take some time to recharge the batteries. We were not disappointed. An amazing experience. Fabulous staff, nothing was too much trouble. We chose to endure the five day raw detox, two days of juicing only followed by raw menu for the remaining three days. The food was absolutely amazing.... More
