My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights whilst in Ubud and were blown away! The Villa is beautiful and the staff were super helpful. It’s about a 10 min drive out from ththe town centre which we found perfect as it’s close enough to pop in quickly but far enough away to feel totally secluded! Wendy and Astu were great in the lead up to our trip helping arrange every last detail!
Will certainly be back!
5 days at Shamballa residence and it was perfect. Gorgeous peaceful setting. Perfect views - mornings from upstairs were incredible. Attention to detail was amazing. The staff were friendly. Always available. Helpful. We had meals cooked in the house - incredible Balinese food. We also had the inhouse full body massage. Perfect. Every evening - candles lit for us all over the house - and insect coils. Reliable transport too. Drove us where ever we wanted to go. Loved it !!!! Thank you !!!
Me and husband stayed in the villa for 3 nights for our wedding anniversary in March 2018 . It was absolutelly beautifull stay , the villa is very nicelly done , with comfi furniture and lovely pool . The view is breathtaking and it seems so remote but in fact is very well located in a quete neghbourhood of Ubud , may be just 10 min drive from center .
Kadet and Mini have done all the possible efforts to make us feel comfortable and pampered . The dinner was so tasty and well prepared .love the fried banans from the afternoon tea . The candles every evening all around the house - that was really speacial . The driver Wayan have given us really good tours of the area , great driving and service .
Finding the villa is little tricky since there is no sign on the street and the internal road is very rought .
Perfect place to unwind in very lovely accommodation surrounded by nature. There is some noise from a road in the valley but nothing that would cause any problem at all. We ate every dinner in the villa cooked by the the staff which were all delicious. The service is lovely not intrusive at all but available if you need anything. We had a couple of massages and flower bath after was provided free. the massage was easily organized and done at the villa around the pool. very private and excellent. Price for food, massage, taxi all very reasonable indeed. Candles were lit every night in all rooms. The bedroom that has its own lounge and bathroom aswell as a downstairs lounge, dining area, pool and main bathroom with bath and outside shower. We loved the rest.
Our second stay and we will beback again. Wonderful facilities and villa design. The upstairs bedroom with wonderful jungle vews is beautifully furnishef and supplied to a high standard. The staff are exceptional and the meals available are healthy and wholesome. A villa backed with exceptional management
It was very pleasant to find a Balinese style building hidden in a non-touristic traditional village environment. The narrow unpaved access path makes not the impression to find a luxury holiday retreat. But the wooden entrance door opens to a little well designed paradise with modern and traditional style elements.
To live in a house totally open to the outside nature was an exotic experience.
In addition to this comes the very friendly staff of the villa. Kadek, Minnie and Wayan made everything to make us feel at home. It was hard to leave them after 10 days.
As part of our belated honeymoon/1st yr wedding anniversary trip to Bali, I booked Villa Shamballa for myself and my husband.
Man am I glad that I did :)
The property is split over two floors with bamboo blinds wrapped around it (which you can leave up or down depending on your preference), has an indoor and outdoor bathroom and an infinity pool which looks out to breath-taking views of the forest.
That being said it is truly the staff who made our experience unforgettable.
Kadek, Minnie & Wayan are all so lovely.
Wayan picked us up just down the road from the villa on our first day (as our driver got a bit lost) and was so friendly. He also provided in house security each night so we felt very safe. Minnie would dress our room and light candles/lanterns every evening at sunset which made the villa look magical and Kadek was the lead when it came to our meals (I had the snapper two nights in a row and my husband tried pretty much everything on the menu).
During our stay in Ubud we had a few early morning activities booked so had to leave the villa for a few hours but were always excited to return. It was like a home away from home!
We only got back to London a week ago today and I'm already planning our return hopefully next year.
It was our first trip to Asia and being in crazy Hong Kong a week before we definitely saved the best till last in coming to Bali.
Thank you so much for making our experience so memorable.
