When it comes to spa and wellness retreats, the COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali is up there with the best in the world.
The Estate is a unique residential health retreat set in Bali’s jungle-clad interior right on the banks of a beautiful river. With first-class style, service and spa treatments, guests can take in the breathtaking views of the gorge in total luxury. It is located just a short drive out of the cultural hub of Ubud, yet far enough to ensure it is a haven of tranquility.
The Como Shambhala Estate is the flagship property of the Como group whose collection includes the Metropolitan London and Parrot Cay in the Caribbean. They offer an exceptional approach to spa retreats with a personal consultant available upon your arrival to help you choose your spa programme during your stay. Bathe in sacred spring water (revered by Balinese for its healing properties, this water is pumped uphill to the vitality treatment pool) or enjoy traditional and alternative treatments such as reflexology, ayurvedic massage and iridology.
Different programmes are on offer, from detox, stress relief and rejuvenation, and there are daily classes you can choose to attend. You can also arrange private activities to explore your mystical surroundings, or simply kick back and relax at the superb facilities at the hotel.
There are 21 rooms and suites located in one of the four Residences, which are dotted around the property. These are styled around the four elements of water, fire, earth and air. For a group of friends travelling together, renting the entire Residence is a wonderful option. There are also 10 freestanding villas with one or two bedrooms and some with private pools.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Bali into a greater Indonesian holiday. Take a look at The Complete Balinese Experience as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
