Villa Shamballa is a spiritual and tranquil haven that offers an intimate and indulgent private villa experience. Located in mystical Ubud, the arts, crafts and cultural hub of “The Island of the Gods” - Bali.
Unlike a hotel or hotel managed villa, most of the private villas in Bali are originally built and designed for each owner to enjoy staying for themselves. Therefore, each private villa has more distinctive characteristics reflecting upon the owner’s taste. What is different from staying at a hotel? The answer is it makes you feel at home as if it was your own holiday house! Imagine this, you have your own pool, a whole house and villa staff to cater exclusively for your needs only. This enables you to enjoy warm hospitality from the friendliest of staff who have a full understanding of the importance of your privacy. This will make your holiday very special and a memorable experience that you can take with you.
Villa Shamballa is very conveniently located in a small traditional village called Payogan which means “place to do yoga”. Although just 5 minutes drive from the centre of Ubud one senses they are miles away in the middle of a tropical forest. This hidden gem allows you to experience seclusion whilst remaining a stone’s throw from all conveniences.
A few minutes drive from the villa the Sangingnan area offers a variety of culinary and shopping experiences. Among them is the world famous Mozaic restaurant for fine dining and other places popular with expats such as Nuri’s and Fly Cafe. Also, many art galleries, antique shops, spas and a yoga studio.
The villa is about one hour and fifteen minutes from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.
The Villa is a large two story home with tropical gardens and pool offering indoor and outdoor living.
Tropical LivingGround Floor:
An indoor living room which is equipped with a large screen TV, DVD and CD player for your entertainment. Outdoor dining area and two wooden deck areas by the infinity pool. Main bathroom featuring indoor bath and outdoor 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.
