“Beautiful Villa with One Drawback”

This villa is really beautiful and exactly as pictured on the website. It's well maintained and nicely decorated. We loved the open floor plan...no walls. You really feel part of the outdoors. The staff were fantastic. The food was so good we had dinner at the villa every night. You order in the morning, tell them what time and enjoy a nicely served meal by the pool with a gorgeous view.

It is possible to walk to Ubud and also to the local village, but realistically, it's not that easy. Almost any place is a long walk with some hills, no sidewalks and it's hot. (Note that generally we really enjoy walking and hiking both at home and while on vacation) The villa will arrange for a driver but you do need to make arrangements in advance.

The one drawback that keep us from giving Villa Shamballa a 5 star rating is the traffic noise. The location on the side of a ravine is really beautiful, but just across the ravine (and only about 200 yards from the villa) is a road. While you can only see a small portion of the road due to the trees, bushes, etc. it's a 2 lane road with traffic all day long from morning until evening. Much of this traffic consists of motor bikes and there us also the occasional truck. So while you are relaxing by the pool, or in either of the lounge areas, you will almost constantly hear road traffic.

In summary, we would give a conditional recommendation to Villa Shamballa. If you are used to traffic noise and can tune it out, then this is a beautiful private villa with an exceptional staff and we would recommend it. If you are not used to traffic noise or are looking for a really quiet place, then we suggest you book elsewhere.

“Extreme Satisfaction”

If stay at the villa then stay there.
If you think there is something wrong with the villa then it's more than likely to be you.
The experience was holistic (a way I never feel)
You will have PEACE!
You will have the most amazing meals cooked with love.
The staff the villa actually care about how you feel & where it seems your enjoyment becomes theirs, after all it's not only the villa but the people that make the experience.
Our warmest & sincere thoughts are with Iluh, Dewa & Gusti for their extremely high level of care.
