Set amongst the tranquility of a rainforest and eastern culture - you might think you have made the penultimate choice in accommodation!! Think again - a 'polycarbonate roof' - apparent insulation, a tree hoisted against the frame of the studio (Shiva in our experience), that squarked in resistance against the timber when the wind blew. An air conditioner that was... More

Beautiful, well appointed accomodation with excellent facilities ( including barbecue, sun lounges, hammock, sauna, steam room and spa bath ) and access to a stunning beach. Very friendly and helpful staff.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted with happiness and open arms. Jo, the owner of this magical place took us on a tour of the grounds. From steam room to the gym, sauna to our own spa bath this place offered us everything that we required to have a truly relaxing holiday. Shambhala is located around 15min walk... More

If you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all but still be close enough to great restaurants, shops and explore all Byron has to offer then this is the place. My husband and I Just spent 4 nights here in the "honeymoon" apartment (Samadhi) to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary and we couldn't have asked for more.... More

Unfortunately, I am staying here until Sunday because they made me pay in full a month before arriving. Now I understand why. This is the WORSE hotel I ever stayed in! The "Shiva" is a tiny bedroom that they decided (according to the manager...) to add on a kitchen that connects to a yoga room (which is supposedly our "loft/TV... More

This was an incredible place to stay! Dierk was so lovely from start to finish- giving us a thorough tour of the grounds and ensuring we had everything we needed. The 'hut' was spacious and beautiful. Air-con was perfect and the projector screen was a nice surprise. The grounds are so tranquil and relaxing. The best bit for us was... More

I don't usually write reviews however this place surpassed all expectations. A beautiful and calm entrance with stunning statues of Buddha and Ganesh. All senses awaken with the incense sticks, soft music. With private areas for each cottage inclusive of loungers and hot tubs (and of course the private beach). A great get-away for some peace and quiet. Good facilities,... More

Chose Shambhala with the intention of creating the perfect setting for a surprise proposal to my girlfriend on the deck of the Samadhi Retreat. What I found in Property Manager Dierk was nothing short of AMAZING - he helped / arranged / photgraphed and at times even waited his way to the most magical night that my partner and I... More

The resort is beautiful, green and tranquil with a constant scent of incense through the air (that did tend to find it's way inside the accommodation, however we did have the windows open at times). The beach the resort backs onto is beautiful and convenient to reach! The manager, Dirk, was just wonderful. Charming and friendly you can have faith... More

Stayed at the Shambhala for my 50th birthday weekend, 12 of us in total. This IS the best location and the most perfect layout , catering for both an intimate and a group gathering. I hired the entire property which was sensational, very peaceful and private, and we all loved the whole outdoor relaxed atmosphere which is what this property... More
