Spent 3 nights at this luscious resort and wish I could have stated longer. There are barely the right words to describe how immaculately designed and run this resort is.

What a place! My friend and I met here to do a week of the "Stress Management" wellness program. This included, among many other wonderful things, 8 massages in 7 days. It was glorious.

This spa resort defies expectations. OK, it's very, very expensive, however it rewards in every way and more. From arrival you're cosseted by a level of care and attention that is beyond imagination.

This was the last stop on our honeymoon and unfortunately we found it a little disappointing. We arrived after staying in Mandapa about ten minutes drive away, I don’t think this helped our view of Como Shambala as Mandapa was the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The location for Como Shambala is lovely and the fact that you... More
