That guy from Wellington wrote a review May 2020

The facilities, staff and food were first class and I was very satisfied. The location is not the best in Ubud, and Ubud has become too commercialized and lost its appeal. Very friendly and efficient service. Would love to return one day!

Dear That guy from Wellington, Warmest greetings from COMO Shambhala Estate. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience in this forum. We are particularly glad that you made a special mention of the Estate location. The Estate is located approximately six miles from centre of Ubud, in a cultural-centric village called Begawan. Our lush and pristine location next to Ayung River allows us to create a haven, a sanctuary some might have said, where our guest can enjoy their new experience and draw strength from the environment, the care offered to them, and even themselves. Reading your first sentence, we feel that we have managed to create the place where you can enjoy yourself. Please do let us know when your plans bring you back to Bali. We would very much like the opportunity to welcome you back to COMO Shambhala Estate. Till then, we wish you the best. Keep safe and healthy. Kind regards, Ram Hiralal

I stayed here for four nights in February and I have to say it’s one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. The menu is brilliant and whilst if you try hard you can have the standard meals you should still to what looks odd on the menu and you will really enjoy it. When your picking drinks try the Green Chum Chum but do it at the beginning of your stay ! The Yoga, Palates and all the other activities are just fab in the setting and you really end up not needing to go anywhere.

My wife and I stayed at the Como in Ubud for our 30th anniversary. We intentionally divided our time between the Ritz Mandapa and Como to try and enjoy both vibes. We are glad we did, although we easily could've stayed all 8 days in one or the other. The coolest thing at the Como was the half-day Purification Ceremony that we did immediately upon arrival. We had an entourage that led us step by step through a genuine and lovely traditional Hindu water ritual that included music, a Hindu priest, and dunking in a sacred water source on the property. It was amazing and fun, but also a learning experience. The seating for breakfast overlooked an expansive forested valley, including monkeys that were swinging about. The food was satisfying and unique. My wife felt that the gluten free options were sufficient. The entire staff was lovely. As opposed to the Mandapa, one can easily walk around the Como grounds, though getting down to the ritual pool can be a challenge because of the many steps. Even so, it was totally worth it, especially for the private lunch that we had inside a curtained perch/bed cabana following our ceremony! Picture Cleopatra snacking on fruits, a Balinese lunch, and tropical beverages. The spa treatments were superb. Our secluded river villa was lovely. We did use incense to cover a mothball odor, but that was inconsequential. Interestingly, we learned that many of the RItz staff had worked at the Como in the past! Our butler was always available and was friendly. We underutilized his services, since we made most of our own plans. But he was clearly willing and ready if needed. I am forever grateful to the hotel manager, who enthusiastically rallied her staff to help extract an untold number of micro thorns from my leg using strapping tape. I inadvertently brushed against some vicious plant on a hike 2 hours away from the Como earlier in the day. I was in misery until she came to my rescue, bending down and patiently doing the "40 Year Old Virgin" tape rip until all the thorns were finally out!!! Thank you...

Dear E27continents, Warmest greetings from COMO Shambhala Estate! It was such a lovely review to read. We truly are grateful that you have taken the time to write and post it. Our ultimate goals are to ensure your satisfaction and try to create experience worth reliving for our guests. Delighted to know that we have accomplished that. As a resort, we are a big advocate of creating a wholesome experience - combining Water Spring Blessing and private lunch definitely fits the bill! Should you find your way back to us, you can always elevate this experience by having massage in outdoor treatment rooms in Kedara (meaning ‘Water Garden’ in Sanskrit). It is a perfect setting to have our Warm Muscle Wrap treatment – our take on ancient Balinese treatment where we apply remedy made from warming spices all over your body and then wrap your body with cloth to let the remedy works its magic. It took us couple of minutes of googling to understand your “40 Year Old Virgin” reference. Hopefully you were not in such pain as the character in the movie. Nevertheless, It was an uncomfortable situation, but all’s well that ends well. All our team and I are hoping to welcome you back to our little Paradise in the near future. Till then, we wish you the best. Kind regards, Ram Hiralal
