At COMO Shambhala Estate, amidst Ubud’s lush vegetation, each Ayurvedic programme is customised based upon a thorough consultation. The programme will include detox and body treatments, a COMO Shambhala Cuisine diet, meditation, yoga lessons and panchkarma. A six-day retreat at this splendid oasis will have you feeling completely restored and refreshed.
