Looking for a comprehensive review of the COMO Shambhala Estate Welness Retreat Ubud Bali?
Ubud, Bali - a name that resonates with tranquility, natural beauty, and a profound cultural richness. It is within this serene realm that the COMO Shambhala Estate finds its home, promising a wellness retreat that goes beyond the ordinary. Here, the murmuring rivers and rustling trees are not just silent spectators; they are part of your immersive wellness journey, a refreshing counterpart to the resort's contemporary luxuries.
Sitting elegantly within the Tjampuhan Valley, the estate claims seven acres of lavish greenery as its own. The landscape here feels like a hidden paradise, untouched by the outside world. The resort's 30 individually furnished rooms, suites, and villas are designed to echo the lush surroundings. Traditional Balinese decor is beautifully juxtaposed with modern amenities, creating an atmosphere of refined simplicity. Thatched roofs, sprawling private pools, and the spectacular views of the valley below make each villa feel like an isolated sanctuary.
For those with a taste for the culinary, two on-site restaurants are ready to tantalize your taste buds. Kudus House, inspired by Indonesian cuisine, gives you an authentic taste of local flavors, while Glow serves COMO Shambhala's signature healthy cuisine, a symphony of nutrition and taste.
The estate's wellness facilities provide a holistic approach to rejuvenation. The tranquil spa offers treatments from hot stone massages to Ayurvedic therapies. Yoga classes and Pilates in the health club add to the restorative offerings. There's also a large outdoor pool, perfect for a soothing swim under the Bali sky, and a high-end gym with cardiovascular equipment for those keen on maintaining their workout routine.
But the COMO Shambhala Estate is more than a luxury resort. It's a gateway to the cultural and natural wonders of Ubud. Embark on an estate walk that takes you through the heart of the jungle to a hidden water garden. Or receive a water blessing at the estate's sacred spring. Explore the streets of Ubud, learning about Balinese culture, spirituality, and trade. For the more adventurous, the surroundings offer opportunities for rock climbing, hiking, and mountain biking.
While COMO Shambhala Estate presents a high-end wellness retreat, it isn't without its quirks. While some say the abundant nature around the property might bring you face-to-face with local fauna like frogs and geckos, and there are a fair number of steps across the property we see these as pluses. These are small prices to pay for a stay that so brilliantly bridges luxury and nature.
If the costs seem daunting or if you desire a slightly different flavor of luxury, consider the Komaneka at Tanggayuda. Yet, for those in pursuit of an unmatched wellness-focused retreat, the COMO Shambhala Estate's blend of lush nature, superior facilities, and cultural immersion offers an experience like no other.

Overall Score: 8.8/10
In comparison to its peers, the COMO Shambhala Estate emerges as a standout. While Fivelements draws strength from its immersive spiritual journey and Bagus Jati from its emphasis on physical wellness and connection with nature, COMO Shambhala offers a harmonious blend of luxury, comprehensive wellness, and engaging outdoor activities. This unique combination creates a distinct space for the Estate in the vibrant tapestry of Bali’s wellness retreats.
A fair score for COMO Shambhala Estate, considering its wide-ranging wellness offerings, luxurious accommodations, personalized services, and idyllic location, would be a well-deserved 9.7/10.
In the symphony that is Bali's wellness retreat scene, COMO Shambhala Estate delivers an enchanting melody of serenity, luxury, and holistic rejuvenation. It's more than a retreat - it's a sanctuary where one can dissolve into the natural harmony of life. A journey towards health and happiness awaits within its nurturing embrace.
