The Experience

COMO Shambhala Estate

A luxurious residential health retreat that promises total commitment to your improved well-being. We present you with new challenges, providing perpetual inspiration in your lifelong journey towards better health.  We have a holistic approach. Nothing we offer at the Estate is devoted entirely to the exterior physique without taking a closer look at the hidden elements. This 360-degree experience is key to our proactive philosophy.

All of our individual rooms and suites exist within the setting of a Residence (Bayugita, Tirta Ening, Tejasuara, Wanakasa and Umabona). Each suite has one bedroom except the Royal Suite at Umabona which features two bedrooms.  We can advise on which room is suited to your particular needs (sizes vary, so please refer to detailed floorplans and descriptions relevant to an entire Residence. Whatever option, you get access to your Residence’s pools, lounge areas and shaded pavilions.

Immerse yourselves in the tastes of the Estate enjoying our healthful approach to cooking.  Dining at the Estate is flexible and easy, with various options available to suit different moods and tastes. We focus on nutrition to maximise personal performance by increasing concentration, energy levels and addressing blood-sugar imbalances. To address your specific needs, our resident nutritionist assesses your diet during an initial wellness consultation. Recommendations are made, working with the Executive Chef and our Ayurvedic Doctor (for those on a specific Ayurvedic diet).  COMO Shambhala Cuisine – designed to maximise energy and wellbeing with the use of raw, organic foods rich in vitamins and living enzymes – is available on all the Estate’s menus.

The buzzing heart of the Estate is Glow, a contemporary, open-sided, all-day dining restaurant featuring our healthful COMO Shambhala cuisine. There’s an open kitchen, so you can watch your fresh food as it’s prepared.  Dishes might include lime leaf, chilli and coconut curry of fern tips and cherry tomatoes and seared mahi-mahi with baby zucchini, chickpea and mint salad with preserved lemon and sumac dressing.  

Kudus House serves breakfast and dinner and showcases the diverse influences, flavours and spices of Indonesia’s regions. It is a more intimate space, occupying a 150-year old former Javanese residence. At night, it offers a quiet, gourmet experience.

Engage with COMO Shambhala Estate’s purpose by immersing yourself in a complete wellness experience.  Our holistic approach means taking care of mind, body and spirit. We listen to you, your needs and ambitions, each guest receiving an initial wellness consultation that’s then developed into a plan of treatments and activities. This is because we believe issues of wellbeing are as manifold as our guests are individuals, and involve diet, activity, education and relaxation. We also want you to enjoy Bali in your pursuit of better health with our daily complimentary schedule.

Our therapies at the Estate are delivered by expert staff who are trained in specific modalities, from Ayurveda to hydrotherapy. Many of our treatments are Asian-inspired, paired with cutting-edge advances in holistic healthcare. 

The Estate offers different bodywork that improves not just body, but mind and spirit. All are available to you on the Estate’s complimentary daily Schedule, including an enlivening morning walk through the local landscape, as well as Yoga.  Mountain bikers can choose from gentle cruises along easy backroads to a bash down muddy tracks and rough village byways, detailed on our Activities Planner. Trails are mapped by staff.

The Estate is located a 15-minute drive from Ubud, the town regarded as Bali’s cultural hub. The name is derived from ‘Ubad,’ or medicine in Balinese.  Our environment, occupying 23 acres, is all about state-of-the-art health facilities.  Moreover, the Estate is located in Bali’s spiritual heartland known for its healing waters.  Join Retreats and Wellness Programmes, engaging with the landscape in the pursuit of better health. As always, the experience is enriched by our healthful COMO Shambhala Cuisine.

Regretfully we ask all visitors to make pre-arranged appointments if they wish to view the Estate. This allows us to protect the privacy and peace for our guests on retreat.
