I can't wait to return! Como Shambhala is a really special and nurturing resort, set in the midst of a lush, green rainforest. The hotel grounds within the rainforest are carefully maintained by a group of gardeners who are always pruning, trimming, cutting etc. The view of the valley and surrounding hills is just lovely. For me, it was a... More

I'm staying at the one bed room villa. the room temperature was really hot, even when we've turned on the ac to 10 degrees celcius. When we complained the manager was very unhelpful, giving excuse that it can't be colder since it was a balinese villa Using a sarcastic tone. should that be true, at that temperature it's pointless for...

I am about to release my solo CD entitled "Heaven on Earth" so to visit Como Shambhala for a second time was truly a privilege because it is truly 'Heaven on Earth'! The location is so peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful. There are sacred waterfalls and the whole site feels very spiritual. The staff are like a big family of 340... More

I have returned to this magical place four times now. It's difficult to describe the experience, so you must do it for yourself. It's quietly perfect and very classy. IMO, there is a huge difference in the management and staff effort necessary between a property that rates 95%, and one that rates 100%. Como Shambhala is a solid 100%. I... More

Visited Como in February of 2013 by myself. I am a 28 year old female and this was the first time that I was traveling by myself and I could not have gone to a better spot. Como was amazing. It’s not just a resort, it’s an experience. I participated in one of their week long wellness programs consisting of... More

Como is a wonderful mountain resort, providing extreme luxury in a peaceful setting. The staff are attentive and very warm. The menu is one of the healthiest I have seen in any resort. The villas are large and beautiful. The mountain hillside down to the river have private pool with fresh spring water.

This place is in a heavenly location and have all facilities one could imagine. However, it is managed poorly and lacks attention to details. Some professional staff is absolutely outstanding (such as Nutritionist and Qigong Teacher and Acupuncturist), while Meditation and Yoga are poorly led. Spa is no where close to what you might expect in 5 star resort. It... More
