Located in mystical Ubud, a world famous centre of spiritual and physical wellness, of painting, performing arts, literature, carving, ceremonies and traditional culture on Bali.
This romantic hideaway magically perched atop a ravine overlooking the mystic Wos River is the ideal secluded location for a couple or small group. Many centuries ago Hindu priest Maharishi Markandya came from Java and upon discovering the healing properties of the area settled in for meditation and healing practices.
Villa Shamballa, situated in the midst of a charming small traditional village, is truly blessed with all the gifts that mother nature has to offer. Our guests enjoy seeing colourful butterflies and birds whilst taking in the fragrance of the frangipani trees on the gentle tropical breeze. At night marvel at the stars and watch the fireflies. In the morning absorb the spiritual energy from the mist that rises up from the sacred river deep down in the valley below.
The perfect escape to revive and cleanse your soul and undoubtedly a unique retreat to experience the closest place to heaven on earth. There are many places you might visit but this is the only one you will want to come back to time and time again.
Villa Shamballa caters for each guest’s needs offering abundant ambience and luxury with a touch of classic elegance. Dramatic river gorge and breathtaking tropical jungle valley setting, friendly staff and rustic charm provide total comfort making it a relaxing retreat for all.
Each guest is assured of a real holiday with peace and serenity to recharge their batteries, especially for those getting away from modern busy urban life.
Unlike a hotel or a hotel-managed villa, most of the private villas in Bali are originally designed and built for individual owners to enjoy staying themselves. Each private villa has more distinctive characteristics reflecting upon the owner’s taste.
What is different from staying at a hotel? The answer is it makes you feel at home as if it is your own holiday house!
Imagine this, you have your own private infinity pool, lounge room and dining area with staff exclusively catering for your needs and no other guests. Enjoy warm and friendly interactions and hospitality from staff possessing a full understanding and appreciation for your privacy as well.
This whole experience makes your special holiday so much more memorable.
