All elitist superlatives apply: sublime, gorgeous, exquisite. It should come as no surprise that it's crazy expensive. Yes, you can get a massage cheaper in Ubud. But what you're paying for at Como is the whole package: an excellent massage in an incredibly well designed environment where literally everything (including the toilet bowls) are pretty.
If you're willing to pay for it then go for it, and let it take you away. The rooms are not rooms, they are villas. You will feel like a rock star here. We did the yoga and mediation classes and those were excellent and accessible. The food was outstanding, not only healthy but very delicious.
Our only complaint was the 'upselling'. The staff never stopped asking us if we wanted more: dessert? more drink? massage? -- even after we declined. It seems they should find a classier way to do this.
