COMO Shambhala Estate

A luxurious wellness getaway in Bali’s jungle
VERIFIED LUXURY
Tucked away a short distance from Bali’s cultural center of Ubud, COMO Shambhala Estate invites you to take up residence and embrace both luxury and wellness.  This ultra-luxe health-focused getaway bills itself as a “retreat for change,” a place where you can leave with healthful lifestyle habits firmly intact.

The estate sprawls across 23 acres nudging a jungle-covered riverbank where you can find a natural spring locally revered for its healing properties.

It takes a personalized approach to health with resident experts, including a yoga and Pilates instructor, an Ayurvedic doctor and Oriental medicine masters in tai chi, qigong and other martial arts.

The purposeful healing programs are complemented by state-of-the-art facilities, including a vitality pool with underwater soaking jet beds, beautiful outdoor treatment areas overlooking the Ayung River, nine indoor treatment rooms and a Pilates studio.

To complete the holistic approach to your health plan, a sophisticated nutritional menu is individualized for you, too.

The Rooms
