“One of a kind, this exquisitely elegant hotel is set on its own estate overlooking thickly forested hills, steep misty valleys and monumental moss-covered stone walls.
Its 30 suites are split between nine individually styled villas, each with its own pool. The hotel encourages a holistic approach to life focusing on wellness but does this in a relaxed manner – unless you knew you wouldn’t even notice. The spa treatments are sinfully pleasurable and so is the food. Perfect to rest, recharge and develop new good habits, it is also a convenient location from which to visit nearby Ubud or take part in adventurous mountain biking, trekking and rafting.”

“Shambhala, the sacred place of bliss.”
"Part super-slick hotel, part spiritual retreat, this is a place to come for complete self-restoration. Encircled by jungle and waterfalls, patrolled by monkeys and frequently shrouded in river mist, it is like a valley conjured up in a dream. But one that can also produce real results."
