• About - COMO Shambhala Estate

You are here


COMO Shambhala Estate is a residential health retreat combining holistic wellness with state-of-the-art facilities and exceptional villa accommodation. The location is unique, a spiritual enclave of jungle, river and sun-rich clearings just north of Ubud. Specialists in yoga, Pilates and qigong provide inspiration and nurture, working in harmony with guides for mountain biking, hiking, climbing, whitewater rafting and outdoor circuit training. Asian therapies and healthful cuisine form part of the dynamic packages created according to personal wellness requirements. The idea is to help guests make informed life changes that will last well beyond their stay.


Address and Contact

Our retreat for change is near Ubud which is a 20-minute drive from this bustling artists’ town towards the centre of the island. Life is village-based, relaxed and largely rural, the landscape made up of rice paddies, distant volcanoes and forest, with COMO Shambhala Estate nestled in a clearing above a jungle-covered gorge beside the River Ayung.

Bali is located in the tropics and enjoys a balmy year-round climate. Temperatures average a very pleasant 80°F (27°C) in the Ubud area and a little lower at around 71°F (22°C) in the central volcanic region around Kintamani. The best time to visit (the high season) is May through to September. The humidity is much lower at this time, although there is still the chance of rain. However, it is much more likely to be an hour-long downpour, rather than all-day drizzle.


At our luxury Ubud spa retreat, Cheong Yew Kuan—an architect with conspicuous respect for the environment and indigenous styles of building—worked with interior designer Koichiro Ikebuchi to create COMO Shambhala Estate, combining local stone, wood and traditional alang-alang roofing to build sophisticated spaces that are at once contemporary and thoroughly traditional.
