Twelve days at Shambala was indeed magical. A breathwork teacher training so we stayed there most all the time. To work and sleep in these great apartments with the ocean pounding in a totally magical way, ahhh. I love the peacefulness and magic instilled in the place, and the possibility to do my own watsu - peaceful resting in the...

It was a very beautiful place to go to. Service is always nice and freindly. The room was so close to the ocean that you felt embraced by it. Food was always a good choice of different vegetarian choices. I did some snorkeling directly in front of the hotel. We drove with a rented car and found the place easily...

Just arrived home from a yoga retreat at Shambala. Such a relaxing lovely place. It is located on the north coast of Bali so getting there is not completely simple. The drive is long and full of adventure but that is what makes it interesting. It is located in Bondelem a sleepy little non touristy village. (Another plus) the staff...

This pearl was a beautiful oasis in a quiet and unexploited area of Bali. The owners are conscious, caring friendly. The local staff so welcoming and warm. The gardens are heavenly and the rooms so creatively done down to the last detail. Food excellent. Right on the ocean so water and waves ever present. Highly recommended.

We entered the main gate and ….got showered with the flowers! This is how the wonderful staff at Shambala greets their guests. Lush gardens, spa, yoga & meditation hall, comfortable accommodation, delicious food, sound of the sea waves … a paradise was found! I can’t believe that there could be a person who would not fall in love with Shambala....

I was looking for a place to hide from the world and reduce stress. This place was fantastic and idealic. The staff were really great and friendly. We had a nice time. The rooms are beautifully appointed and I loved hearing the sea at night.

“Oceanside rooms are a winner for me. Less ocean sound further behind.”

“Ask for a room by the ocean”
sar2120, 18 Sep 2016 | Read review
“Amazing room. Like a picture. Loved it!! The bed is very comfortable, relaxing chair, another bed that can sleep another person, even a pillow for your feet If you are using the table. The music was amazing, the stereo system provided in your room with the music. Also, your own water cooler is provided, so you always have access to water. 30 seconds walk to the pool, one minute walk to the ocean. And the flowers in the garden, so beautiful. The staff are amazing, the food beyond anything I could have imagined. Definitely a place I would love to visit again! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away, treat yourself to massages, these ladies are very well trained in what they do, and the cost is very minimal. ”
