COMO Shambhala Estate | Payangan | Gianyar Regency | Bali
COMO Hotels and Resorts celebrates the individual spirit. Our properties worldwide are entirely different from each other while sharing respect for exceptional cuisine, meaningful wellness, contemporary design, local culture, environment, and service. We strive to deliver experiences that are unique to you and the country you are visiting, from our city hotels in London, Miami Beach, Perth, and Bangkok, to island retreats in the Maldives, Turks and Caicos, and Thailand, from wild lodges in Bhutan’s Himalayan valleys to resorts in Bali and Italy. This distinctive COMO approach is what makes our special events stand apart, from high-profile weddings on one of our private islands to corporate events or incentive trips. Whatever the scale, we obsess about the details, turning ambitious ideas into precious memories worth reliving.
COMO Shambhala Estate is a residential health retreat, set in a spiritual enclave of jungle, river, and sun-rich clearings just north of Ubud. This ‘retreat for change’ combines holistic wellness with state-of-the-art facilities and exceptional villa accommodation. Specialists in yoga and Pilates work in harmony with guides for mountain biking, hiking, climbing, white-water rafting, and outdoor circuit training, offering a 360-degree approach to wellness. Asian therapies and healthful cuisine form part of dynamic packages created according to personal requirements, helping guests make informed life changes that will last well beyond their stay.
Unique among Bali wellness resorts, COMO Shambhala Estate feels truly residential, like a home away from home. All of the individual rooms and suites at our Ubud spa resort sit within one of our freestanding Residences. Every room is different but has access to its residents ‘ pools, lounge areas, and shaded pavilions. For this reason, it appeals not just to those with specific wellness goals in mind, but the dramatic accommodation in villas and suites is suited to couples, independent travelers, groups, and families seeking a peaceful holiday.
5 Residences – Guests can take an individual room or suite in a Residence, and share some facilities (such as the pool) with other guests while still maintaining privacy. Alternatively, the Residences are well suited to a family group or friends when taken over on an exclusive basis. The five Residences, comprising of a total of four rooms and 17 suites, each have a large swimming pool and reflect the natural environment. They feature expansive lounge areas for escaping the sun and a study room which may also be configured as a private treatment room, library, or bedroom.
5 Retreat Pool Villas – These villas are ideal for guests wanting to experience our COMO Shambhala treatments in the comfort of their own villa, with spacious lounge areas, private steam room, and infinity pools that overlook the lush forest.

In each of these two-bedroom villas, the second bedroom has its own private entrance.
