Best hotel I've been to (along with Katikies in Greece), not so much for the luxury, but for the location, surroundings, atmospher, guest service, understated comfort.
Everything was simply perfect. We spent only 1 night, it was worth it. We've been lucky enough to be upgraded to a 1bdrm Retreat Villa, which was simply fantastic. We has our own private infinity pool, private steam room, etc. Staff is everywhere, but very discreet. Gardens are somptuous, with jungle, natural spring pools. Food is simply excellent, from breakfast to dinner.
A once in a lifetime experience

While the place is very expensive, the "Vitality Package" we booked was well worth the money! It includes 2 nights of accommodation, amazing gourmet breakfast, and a 1 hour massage in a private clifftop therapy room overlooking the river. Como Shambhala Estate is such an unique retreat location that offers plenty of privacy and choice of activities with very professional instructors, such as Pilates, Yoga (both by foreign instructors), and a village bike ride lead by a local guide. It really deserves the title 'Estate' as the area the resort covers is HUGE.. the highlight was the natural spring pools about halfway down the mountain which is built and maintained by the estate. The only downside is that given the remote location (about 10 min from Ubud central) the place completely overcharges for transportation. So best you find a driver from outside and arrange side trips separately.

Dear Helenmeloness,

Greetings from COMO Shambhala Estate and thank you for taking the time to reach out to us.

The Estate is indeed a hideaway and it was great that your experiences spanned our various offerings from healthy cuisine, Spa services to Activities like Pilates and Yoga -- a well-rounded stay indeed!

The nature of a stay at The Estate is for one to arrive, unwind and restore and never want to leave for the bustle of the outside world.

We have however taken note of your comments about Transportation.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

With very best wishes,

We stayed at this property with our kids (ages 12 and 14) in July of 2012. It was an amazing experience that they will remember forever. The estate has a unique zen feel that even the kids sense. You are assigned a personal assistant upon arrival that seems to appear out of nowhere whenever you need something. The grounds are stunning and the rooms are well designed with access to the outdoor shower from both the pool and the bathroom. The food was very flavorful and healthy. I would not recommend this hotel for families with kids less than 12 as there are multiple places where a smaller child could easily fall over a cliff.

This place is well worth every penny. The estate is to die for gorgeous. Be careful, though, if you have any issue with stairs- the whole place is vertical and designed upon terraces. Being here was like being in a little bit of heaven- you will never want to leave. In fact, I didn't for my whole stay. Instead I feasted on fabulous, healthy food and took in all the daily activities which included guided hikes, rock climbing, yoga and water therapy. The Ayurvedic doctor is amazing and helped me with a lot of issues. I love this place and can't wait to go back! The rooms are chic, well appointed and the pools luxurious. Views are fantastic and service good. Definitely worth the splurge. And the spa...divine!

Especially recommend for anyone who is looking for detox holiday - great wellness programs and delicious juice menu.

Lots of activities are offered and most of them i.e. yoga, pirates, tai-chi are complimentary so you could have very active holiday too.

Beautiful estate.
