Shamballa Residence in Ubud, Bali
Shamballa Residence is a spiritual and tranquil haven that offers an intimate and indulgent private villa experience. Located in mystical Ubud, a world famous centre of spiritual and physical wellness, of painting, performing arts, literature, carving, ceremonies and traditional culture on “The Island of the Gods” – Bali.
This romantic hideaway magically perched atop a ravine overlooking the mystic Wos River is the ideal secluded location for a couple or small group. Many centuries ago Hindu priest Maharishi Markandya came from Java and upon discovering the healing properties of the area settled in for meditation and healing practices. Shamballa Residence, situated in the midst of a charming small traditional village, is truly blessed with all the gifts that mother nature has to offer. Our guests enjoy seeing colourful butterflies and birds whilst taking in the fragrance of the frangipani trees on the gentle tropical breeze. At night marvel at the stars and watch the fireflies. In the morning absorb the spiritual energy from the mist that rises up from the sacred river deep down in the valley below.
The perfect escape to revive and cleanse your soul and undoubtedly a unique retreat to experience the closest place to heaven on earth. There are many places you might visit but this is the only one you will want to come back to time and time again. Shamballa Residence caters for each guest’s needs offering abundant ambience and luxury with a touch of classic elegance. Dramatic river gorge and breathtaking tropical jungle valley setting, friendly staff and rustic charm provide total comfort making it a relaxing retreat for all. Each guest is assured of a real holiday with peace and serenity to recharge their batteries, especially for those getting away from modern busy urban life.
The Villa is a large two-story home with tropical gardens and infinity pool offering indoor and outdoor living. An indoor living room equipped with a flat screen TV, DVD and CD player for your entertainment, indoor dining room, outdoor dining area, wooden deck area by the infinity pool plus the main bathroom featuring outdoor bath and shower.
The covered outdoor dining pagoda is the perfect spot for breakfast whilst enjoying the fresh morning air and dappled sunlight. In the evening indulge in a romantic candlelit dinner by the pool and listen for the traditional gamelan music that might travel across the valley.
The main bathroom is for pampering. Imagine soaking in a large terrazzo bathtub surrounded by candles, millions of stars shining above and the sound of bamboo leaves rustling in the balmy breeze. Luxuriate with our natural aromatherapy products and thick plush towels.
The bedroom and living area is the ideal place to relax and chill out. Enjoy reading over a cup of refreshing ginger tea and Balinese cake that our staff will gladly prepare for you. Surrounded by many tropical trees you have the sense of living in a tree house.
For your ultimate comfort the four-poster king size bed consists of top of the range mattress and pillows covered with crisp Egyptian cotton sheets. Chinese lamps and mosquito net create an exotic and colonial atmosphere respecting the fusion of beauty and classic charm with the subtleness of modern sophistication.
From this exclusive location, view the vista of the sunrise over the valley each morning as you wake.
