Stayed at this amazing villa that you have to see to believe. Took my family of 12 to celebrate my 6oth birthday. Staff were so attentive with our every need including any ironing we needed doing, gin and tonics at our beck and call.... We could have just stayed in the villa and not ventured out. However we were so close to Ku deTa and a walk along the beach to La Lucciola ( my 60th birthday dinner party venue) and Potato Head. A must visit to Seminyak visitors. Only problem was that 7 of our group contracted Bali Belly on our 2nd day at the villa after not venturing from it so the chef had obviously neglected something...perhaps washing the salad. However the food was spectacular. The Bali Belly was so bad we needed a doctor with injections ($270 each) Great doctor though. And unfortunately it put a real dampner on our trip as it took awhile for people to recover.
Aside from that we loved the way the staff loved our children ( 10,6 and 5 months) and looked after them during everyone’s recovery. Also blown away after we got back from my birthday dinner at La Lucciola ( amazing food) with my bed adorned with a huge happy birthday flower garland. They really tried to make our stay perfect. A spectacular way to celebrate my 60th birthday. Just avoid Bali Belly!
The villa is tastefully decorated, with personalized surprises wherever you eye rests. The relaxing furniture, beautifully manicured garden, made for a relaxing stay away from the hustle and bustle of the Seminyak lanes. The friendly and professional staff always ready to serve. We never ate out as the kitchen chef and his staff made us amazing menus every day. Only negatives were the beach although within walking distance is unclean to swim in, and the area around the villa is very busy and contested.
The villa was fantastic. The staff at the villa were wonderful. We wanted for nothing. They were attentive, yet discrete. They were kind, and their service outstanding. The facilities were excellent and we would go back in a flash.
12 of us stayed at this property. It was in the heart to Seminyak but once inside you felt like you were in your own oasis. All the rooms were well thought out and and incredible attention to detail. The pool area was relaxing and great to do laps. Great open air living room/ meeting room for the end of day to sit and talk. Their chefs were great and prepared beautiful and tasty gourmet meals everyday for our group. We had a person in our group turn 65th and the manager organized a birthday party. The staff brought in 12 musicians and 3 dancers! The staff spent the day decorating the property and preparing a special dinner and birthday cake. We danced the night away! Highly recommend this villa and staff Willie Baronet
My 4 girlfriends and I just had a 5 night stay at Villa Shambala. It was incredible. A true Oasis in Seminyak. We felt safe and really struggled to leave the Villa as it was so enjoyable. The staff were very good a special shout out to Dewa who really shined as he was very pro active and helpful. Budi was also excellent. The chef Katut cooked wonderful good and we were impressed with the quality of the ingredients. I would happily return in a heartbeat. The pool was magnificent and great sound system to create a great atmosphere. A dream vacay!
We stayed to celebrate a milestone birthday, the villa is a fantastic place to stay. All the rooms are great, plenty of space to celebrate together & to have privacy. The staff go above & beyond for their visitors. The villa was quite yet easy walk to eat street, shops & beach. If you want a holiday to remember this is the villa for you.

We stayed here in July-Aug 2014 for 8 nights and re-booked 2015 almost as soon as we got home. It is ideally located near the beach, close to Ku De Ta, and all the shops and eat street of Seminyak. It is not noisy at all. The staff at Shambala are nothing short of amazing. The Villa is beautiful, always clean, always comfortable, and always a happy face there to greet you. The staff are just amazing, they really do make the holiday just amazing. A highlight for us is the meals, there is no need to go out when you have an amazing chef right there to cook anything you like. Elite havens management are also extremely helpful, and the staff are just wonderful. The Villa comfortably sleeps 10, and there is an opportunity to add roll away beds. We had three families, 6 adults and 5 kids and a baby. The grassed area is great for the kids and the pool is the perfect temperature, is kept very clean and has a shallow area for the littlies. The gardens are kept immaculate and there is 24 hour security so you feel completely comfortable at all times. We love it, love it, love it and will return for sure.
