To start planning your vacation to COMO Shambhala Estate
Located just a short drive out of Bali’s cultural hub, Ubud you will find the haven of Como Shambhala Estate. This is the flagship property of the Como group whose collection includes the Metropolitan London and Parrot Cay in the Caribbean.
Sitting amongst terraced rice fields and beautiful jungle, the Como Shambhala Estate is a fly-and-flop resort promising a more personalized approach to a spa retreat than its rivals. The spring water is sacred, revered by Balinese for its healing properties and is pumped uphill to the vitality treatment pool. In the center of the resort is the peaceful spa offering traditional treatments as well as alternative treatments including reflexology, ayurveda and iridology. On arrival a consultation is offered and there are different programs available such as detox, stress relief, rejuvenation or you can simply just make use of the many facilities on offer and follow your own program. Daily classes are offered as well as private activities to explore the mystical surrounding areas.
An array of accommodation is on offer including suites located in one of the residences, each slightly different in style based on the four elements of water,fire air and earth. For those seeking absolute seclusion and privacy, the chic villas with their traditional alang-alang roofs come complete with almost all white interiors and stunning private pools. Dining here is not all about just lettuce but delicious, nutritious meals. Guests are assigned their own personal assistant for the duration of the stay who will encourage achievement of any goals set or just simply encourage relaxation.
There are 21 rooms and suites (with private terraces or gardens) each located in one of the five Residences so you can take a whole Residence if traveling with friends or family or take one of the rooms and share the facilities of swimming pool and communal areas with other guests. For those wanting total privacy there are 10 freestanding villas with one or two bedrooms and private pools, some have spa facilities.
Children are welcome at Como Shambala but there are no specific facilities except babysitting and they are not permitted in the Spa area.

When to go
Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April) – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Bali at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.
