We stay 5 nights in Como Shambala Estate and can't recommend enough this lovely estate. First the property is magnificent, beautiful halls, majestic garden, stunning views etc… I recommend the estate walk and 45 minutes long walk around the estate all the way down to the Agung River just to get a better view of the size of the property....

Finally got round to staying at Como Shambhala Estate after previous stays at its sister hotel Uma Ubud. I will preface my review by saying that I'm glad I finally got to experience a stay at CSE, but I will have to think hard about whether I will return. Why? For this price point, expectations are high and I feel... More

Came to Shambala with high expectations and all were met and exceeded. The staff are attentive and genuinely care. The programmes are comprehensive and top quality.

From the minute you drive in, there is a peace and tranquility at Como. The grounds, the people, the food- all above and beyond. I've never tasted better raw food, or even healthy food, in my life. Even after just 2 days, I felt revived and refreshed. Words cannot describe the beauty and magic especially the walk down to the... More
