We stayed here for 10 days in July in a wonderful BG1 villa . The resort is the most exotic, virgin nature place i ever could imagine in my life. The property has huge area which is located in the forest. The words which best describe this are luxury, relaxing and chilling. The villa is so beautifully designed with everything... More

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

I have stayed at many of the top hotels all over the world, but none compare to my one week stay at Como Shambhala.

The people are so warm, friendly and helpful... More

This was my first trip up to Como Shambhala and definitely not my last! The beautiful location surpassed my expectations. I completed the 3 day Wellness Retreat and loved every minute.

I was looking for an authentic design-led wellness retreat with all the bells and whistles and found it at Como. Stunning jungle setting, divine food, exceptional staff and your own personal assistant. Yoga, pilates, meditation, spa treatments and massages - all by expert staff and all in blissful surroundings.

This is my 3rd visit to Como Shambhala Estate (previously Begawan Giri) since 2002.
