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. Villa Shamballa, 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 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, outdoor dining area, wooden deck area by the infinity pool plus the main bathroom featuring outdoor bath and shower. The outdoor dining area 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 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. The upstairs living area is furnished with a teak day bed, two sofas, a single chair with ottoman and a coffee table. Enjoy lounging back amongst the traditional batik cushions or use as an extra bedroom.
