Destination Guide

COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali is a luxury resort and wellness retreat located just a few miles from the artists’ town of Ubud. The Estate occupies a lush location next to the River Ayung, where it boasts its own sacred spring revered by locals for its healing properties, while activities make exceptional use of the great outdoors. Bali itself is part of the Indonesian archipelago and very accessible. It is known for its lush topography, golden beaches and highly developed performing and visual arts—to which COMO can provide knowledgeable access through its highly trained English-speaking guides. Bali has been called ‘the Island of the Gods’ because of the estimated 20,000 Hindu temples and shrines that are found here. Indeed, every aspect of life on Bali is accompanied by religious ritual. Nature is also at the culture’s core, as well as physical adventures including walking, biking and rafting.
