“Amazing”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stayed next door at Villa Balquisse and this is under the same ownership. Popped over for an inspection and this place is out of this world. The decoration, the gardens, the pool, the furnishings are all incredible. So elegant and amazing. My dream is to stay here with family and book the entire property. There was no one staying when we visited yet the staff on site were so lovely and kind and let us look around without hinderence. If you want a luxury experience out of the norm look here. We took so many photos, at every turn something beautiful and you will feel like you are in Vogue Living.

Stayed June 2013, traveled with friends

This hotel is just beautiful. The owners and staff spared little expense, both monetary and time in designing, maintaining and running this facility. Rooms are gorgeous, the staff are warm and friendly. There is little else to say other than if you are looking for a positive hotel experience here, you've found it. Enjoy!!

This was probably one of the nicest hotel experiences ever.
The entire place is decorated with so much attention to detail, the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly and the rooms simply incredible.
It is a perfect getaway if you are seeking relaxing vacation in Bali, us coming from Singapore really enjoyed our time there and are already planning our next trip to go there end of the month. It might be a little pricey but worth every penny!

The Shaba is such a beauty I hesitate to put this on review. An amazingly beautiful property, the owner has clearly spared no effort to make this place as gorgeous as it can be. It looks exactly like in the photos, its every corner immaculately decorated, providing a perfect backdrop for your photographs. From thoughtful gestures like color coordinated and sweet-smelling towels, to a beach bag provided in the room with sarongs and beach rattan hats, you almost feel like royalty harking back to colonial days. We had the whole mansion to ourselves the two days we stayed there, with wonderful breakfasts by the pool and warm service by the service staff Minar. It was indeed a peaceful stay and we almost didn't want to leave this beautiful gem of a place.

We found unexpected the Villa Shaba in Jimbaran,as we were looking for an exclusive location to marry 12-12-2012 , we gave the management Carte Blanche. We did not see any table decorations, flower,etc. before our wedding.
Mrs Zohra and her team blown us away on our unbelievable, unexpected, beautiful day! From the beginning till the end it was breath taking and amazing. the sea of flowers, table decoration with pearls,food , etc. They recommended us also dj.Karsten from USA , which played till late hours. The Shaba Villa is a place to dream away, it is even so silent that you even did not expect to be in Jimbaran.
We also hired the Balquisse for our family, their comment was also only compliments.
The management even arranged a rain priest, and believe it or not, we did not have any rain till the party was finished 30min. the rain and thunder started (do not forget its was the rain season in Bali), but it did not matter anymore. Thanks again for everything! Mark and Maddy de Koning

The Shaba is a romantic, private villa located in a tropical oasis just a hop, skip and a jump from Jimbaran Bay. With a full service spa, gourmet restaurant and gorgeous swimming pool onsite, there wasn't much reason to leave the property, but with so many exciting restaurants and a beautiful beach right down the road, The Shaba equaled the perfect holiday destination in Bali. Not to be missed.

Tucked away just behind Villa Balquisse is a gem of find - an entire extremely spacious villa with only 3 suites with its own kitchen, pool, dining room and library. The elegant interior furnishing is colonial French with a faint touch of Balinese influence.
Wife and I were welcomed into a huge suite with a bed piled with silk pillows and cushions, a stand-alone bath-tub filled with warm water and flowers, and the entire decor smacks of elegance. Down to the electrical outlets with old brass dimmer switches, the interior details are immaculate. We did find the room a bit dim though.
The staff was wonderful. Upon our arrival at around 2:30pm, we had a late lunch prepared in the villa's kitchen by own personal chef. He also prepared our breakfast the next morning. His attention to detail is superb but he needs to work on his cooking skills though. He did, however, created one of the best coffees I have ever tasted.
The private spa offered a fantastic massage at a pretty reasonable price (200,000 rupiahs for 1 hour) and we had all the facilities of the pool all to ourselves.
Don't expect room service or the front desk phone to be picked up should you require anything. Just ask the attendant on duty for whatever you require. This is not a hotel but more like a private residence.
We highly recommend The Shaba for its tranquility and elegance. We will definitely return.
Hint: Book directly through the hotel web-site for their package deals. Airport transfers are not included if you book through other travel web-sites.
