Been meaning to write this for awhile but just couldn't find the time till now. I found very little faults during my stay in Como. The estate was breathtakingly serene and beautiful. Was totally in a different world. The staff were all friendly and nice. The specialised treatments were not up to my expectations unfortunately but the spas were divine.... More

I was celebrating my 48th birthday in Bali so my family and I went to COMO Shambhala for a nice dinner. The grounds and restaurant were lovely and the food was very good. We are foodies so we were determined to eat at all the top restaurants in Ubud during our 10 week stay and COMO Shambhala was right up... More

COMO Shambhala is the most breathtaking hotel I have ever visited! It was always my dream to stay here, and I was not let down. The grounds are stunning, the rooms are spacious and relaxed, the spa treatments are incredible, and our personal assistant Dewa Ayu was the best ever! We even left the hotel to tour Ubud with their... More

After having stayed at four other Como hotels, I didn't hesitate in choosing Como Shambala for my visit to Ubud earlier this year. I should not have been so confident with my choice. I was familiar with the property having had lunch there with my husband when we stayed at Uma Ubud. I stayed for six nights on the cleanse... More

From the moment the car picked me up at the airport until I was ushered back through customs seven nights later I felt as though I had arrived in heaven. The "nothing is too much trouble" attitude of every staff member was something I have never experienced before anywhere in the world. My personal assistants Mica and Purna were ready... More

Spending 6 nights in peaceful, beautiful surroundings. With amazing food, personal attention by a personal assistant, excellent spa treatments and a very solid, professional well being program I did the Ayurveda Program) was just perfect. I loved that the accommodation was in clusters, around a pool, with their own unique styles. I could spend as much time alone or be... More

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.

Just a few words to sum up our experience: calm, peaceful, relaxing, very friendly service, very good food, beautiful gardens, excellent spa, romantic, a treat for body and soul. A remark? 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

I first visited the Como in 2009 when I stayed at the Chedi in Ubud. A friend recommended the spa and when I arrived I thought it was jaw droppingly beautiful and made plans to return for a personal retreat sometime in the future. Fast forward to 2014 - I just returned from my 4 day stay and sad to... 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 ...
