“great villa and staff! Private and relaxing accomodations”

This was my first time in an open villa and would've stayed here much longer. The two story villa has lots of living space with a view over the gorge. Upon entering the villa we were greeted by the lovely staff and entered a paradise lined with plumeria flowers and a soft glowing pool. What a great first impression!
The meals prepared in the villa were the best we had while in Bali. I loved the green beans with coconut and also nasi goreng for breakfast. Fresh and delicious.
We felt treated like we were Balinese and were invited to join our hostess at the local temple. Loved the community.
The property is kept very clean inside and on the grounds. Loved the sounds of our little frog and geckos in the evening with our cocktail. Loved the smell of incense floating through the air. Loved the sight of early morning fog lingering in the gorge. Loved the freedom of the outdoor shower.
The Wi-Fi had a fast enough connection to Facetime to the States with little issue. Since it was vacation the electronics were really shut down other than to check in.
My only word of caution would be that the stairs are a little steep for maybe the elderly or small children.

“Exquisite beauty”

My partner and i stayed at the heavenly Villa Shamballa in Ubud for a romantic 5 nights in July 2012 and it was indeed a magical experience. The views are simply breathtaking and the villa itself is stunning. It truly is as beautiful as viewed on the website!!

Upon entering the villa we were treated with kindness and love by the friendly natured staff. Tending to our every need, they were pleasant and planned all of our activities with ease. Almost acting like friendly ghosts - we barely came into contact with them whilst they would draw blinds, light candles, prepare meals, clean... the list goes on.

The sunset massage, followed by a luxurious frangipani bath was an absolute treat and morning yoga on the pooldeck is also a lovely way to welcome in the day. We also enjoyed our afternoon swim in the glorious pool and cocktails whilst lazing in the sun.

Ubud is a peaceful (quiet) place, but there's still plenty to see and do - We hired a scooter and cruised around the picturesque rice paddies. We walked through central Ubud. Lunch at Sari Organik was a wholesome and lovely experience. I also enjoyed a class at The Yoga Barn.

The food at the villa has been nothing but superb!! The corn fritters, grilled fish, nasi goreng, chicken curry and banana pancakes all a highlight for us.

Villa Shamballa's beauty is truly mind-blowing. It has a peacefully warm energy surrounding it and you will love every minute spent here. We will most certainly be back!

We spent one week at Villa Shamballa in Payogan as part of our honeymoon. The villa is stunning - exactly as it looks in the pictures, but even more breathtaking when you see it in reality. We felt at home right away. The views from the villa are marvellous, and we spent hours just sitting in the lounge area or by the pool watching the greenery and playing with Mec, the house cat. What made our stay most memorable, however, were our hosts at the villa - two lovely Balinese ladies who looked after our every need and spoilt us with delicious home cooking! The villa is in a good location for exploring the local area; just a short taxi ride will take you into Ubud and plenty of local sites are easily accessed by car, and there are also numerous beautiful walking routes through rice paddy fields and opportunities for local bike tours in the area. We were excited about the villa's rural location; the only slightly negative point to mention would be the road that runs past on the hillside opposite the villa. While it is not a major road, it does get quite a lot of traffic, particularly in the mornings ("rush hour"?), so we initially found it hard to sleep as the bedroom has no external walls. The wildlife (crickets, frogs etc.) is also quite loud at night, so our airplane earplugs turned out to be real sleep savers!
