Interesting place to visit. Located near Paraty in the beginning of the road to Cunha, comfortable outdoors tables where you can have an exquisite fusion of asian and brazilian food. Very good caipirinha and a nice waiter made the stay a relaxing moment,More

Thanks Ricardo, for recommending us to fellow travelers. Unfortunately, we had to close down the Shambhala Lounge. This weekend (30-31 July) we organized a raving farewell party with over 200 friends and people that frequented at Shambhala Lounge. Thanks again for your comments, and we...More

走進餐廳第一眼就會被半戶外的用餐區吸引,色彩繽紛的吊床絕對是大家的最愛位置,可以看到大家非常享受這裏的氣氛。草地上還有一些讓大人小孩活動的設施,像是盪鞦韆。點餐的服務人員非常好,非常詳盡地介紹食物。可能是這裡太熱門,所以上餐點的速度非常地緩慢,我朋友的餐點很完美,非常好吃,我的義大利燉飯則是太鹹了。甜點非常精緻好吃而且特別,是值得再次造訪的餐廳。 The very first glance of this beautiful restaurant must be the bright orange hammock, definitely is the most popular spot to stay. People look super relaxing and joyful here. There are some playground instruments such as a swing for both children and adults. My...More

Thank you for the great review, Jelo! The Lounge is a branch of Shambhala Spa, an Asian 'day spa'. That's why we defined our gastronomy as 'spa cuisine' - exotic healthy food based on natural, local ingredients, with a slight Asian touch... The menu invites...More

The venue distinguishes itself from the conventional, with its gazebos, hammocks and bean bags, attracting people that are looking for a place to relax and unwind, surrounded by lush Atlantic Forrest. We offer a unique 'spa cuisine' gastronomy: healthy and exotic food with a slight Asian flair. Committed to our sustainability program, we give preference to fresh ingredients produced in the Paraty region. In addition to the conventional drinks, we serve a wide variety of fresh juices, herbal teas, different renown Brazilian coffee brands and an original wine tasting concept representing a Brazilian boutique vineyard. Everything is geared to relaxation and gastronomy: the gazebos in the garden with hammocks, sofas and bean bags, a bar on the deck with swings instead of conventional bar stools, the lounge music combined with the sounds of nature. In Shambhala Lounge, even your loyal four legged furry companion is welcome! We offer transport from and to the lounge and the spa - just give us a call!
