Como Shambala in Bali is an incredible place with one of the best spa I have ever come across. I stayed there last October, on my own, for about ten days. I was in the Tirta Ening villa and I had a wonderful aquatic garden in the back of my room. The hotel is situated right in the jungle, close to Ubud, faraway from the sea, overlooking the sacred river of Ayung. At night there is no sound apart from the river, the nocturnal birds and the wind blowing gently through the trees. It's truly magic!
There is an open hall for meditation or yoga, very inspiring and peaceful, but the best is the spa: I had a different massage almost everyday (I recommend Tari, my wonderful therapist!). The food is also excellent, different from 'normal' hotel food, very well presented, a mix of indonesian, healthy, alkaline dishes with an excellent juices and smoothies menu. I think they are going to publish a book with all the recipes. Everything is good, including my wonderful butler Mika and I have no fault to report. If you ever have the occasion do go there and you wont regret it.
