My husband recently surprised me with a four night stay at this very stunning property. Upon arrival, with each & every footstep, we instantly felt a shift, as Mother Nature scooped us up in her arms! Tiered rice fields & meticulously kept tropical gardens all cocooned amongst steep rainforest with cascading waterfalls spilling into the picturesque River Ayung below, transfixed... More

We kept hearing many unbelievable things about this place and the comments were just too good to be true. We decided to spend a few nights to enjoy ourselves in luxury. Totally blown away. Food was shockingly good, unpretentious and totally delicious with healthy portions. The rooms were not modern glamorous nonsense but deep comfortable quality and staff were solid.... More

Every time I return to this paradise I say exactly the same thing -"everybody should experience this for a least one day in their lifetime. " From the minute you arrive every decision is taken from you- its relaxation and pampering at level you probably have not experienced before. The environment, the accommodation, the food, the butler, the spa, the... More

We loved Como Shambhala Estate and cannot wait to be back. Grounds: stunning. There is endless magic to this location, from fresh water rock pools to small waterfalls to terraced grounds reminiscent of rice terraces, not to speak of the elegant residences. At night you hear frogs, cicadas, birds and running water. It was very therapeutic. Service: the warmest, friendliest... More

Was fortunate enough to be able to return to Como estate in July and it was the same if not better experience than last time! We were upgraded to one of the villas which was, literally, breath-taking. The day started with morning juice and coffee delivered, followed by 1 hr yoga and then a long relaxing breakfast. After that it... More

I stayed here for 5 nights on the recommendation of a friend and it was the best experience of my life! My room was part of a compound of 4 residences but you would never believe it as it always felt like you were the only guest. The Estate is situated on 9 hectares of land with superb views of...

We stayed 4 nights here in January for post-surgery rest and rehabilitation, having heard so much of the Estate's beautiful setting and wellness programs. We went with high expectations and left feeling somewhat let down. First, the garden room that they put us in, Bayugita 2, showed a lack of attention to safety details. The indoor shower room had a... More

If like me , you are burnt out, mentally exhausted, I would highly recommend this place. The solitude and serene peacefulness was a welcome tonic for me. The staff are wonderful, the acupuncturist does a great job, not only with the needles, but he also helps with the mind , he is a great listener. The view from our room,... More

I have been there for 5 days of holiday one month ago, and we concluded that COMO Shambhala Estate is another peaceful paradise to us !!! We were glad to be upgraded to COMO Shambhala Suite, the room is very spacious, with a huge king-sized bed, and a garden view balcony. Also we have a private jacuzzi in our room,... More

Perfect is the word I kept repeating. The rooms are perfect, the grounds are perfect, the food is perfect, the classes are perfect, the people are perfect, the bed is perfect. Although it is a health retreat, you do not even notice you are working on yourself because the environment is all so perfect that it feels like the best... More
