COMO Shambhala is the premier Health & Wellness Resort in Bali, a boutique Spa Resort near Ubud offering a tranquil Balinese escape and a variety of programs designed for healthy living.

Opened in 2005, COMO Shambhala follows a healthy living philosophy that takes its inspiration from ancient roots: in ancient Buddhist texts, 'Shambhala' refers to a sacred place of bliss.

COMO Shamhala has a holistic, 360-degree approach to Health & Wellness, offering comprehensive wellness programs, signature massage therapies and tailored programs designed to suit individual requirements.

COMO Shambhala Estate has resident experts year-round, including a yoga teacher, Ayurvedic doctor and nutritionist and specialises in hands-on healing combining traditional Eastern techniques with the latest scientific advances.

The approach to designing a program for guests is consultative, empathetic, compassionate and proactive, making you feel nurtured and supported every step of the way.

Accommodation at COMO Shambhala consists of luxurious rooms and suites located throughout the spacious estate.

A state-of-the-art gym and outdoor activities such as hiking and climbing make the most of the Estate’s unique location.

What’s so Special?

Unique among Bali spa resorts, COMO Shambhala Estate feels very residential, like a home away from home and so suits not just those looking for a Health & Wellness Retreat or Spa Resort in Bali, but also couples, independent travellers, groups and families seeking a peaceful holiday in Bali.

COMO Hotels and Resorts’ owner Christina Ong, designed COMO Shambhala Ubud out of her personal pursuit of a meaningful spa experience. The owner’s passion remains key to COMO’s development today, with the company now owning and operating seven sanctuaries worldwide.

COMO serves meat, fish and vegetables with flavours ranging from Indonesian to Italian to Indian, combining indigenous food traditions and local produce with COMO Shambhala’s basic principles.

For those fasting, traditional items include juices, broths, elixirs, vitamin boosts and organic teas.

COMO Shambhala Cuisine was developed over a ten-year period by Amanda Gale and focuses on a perfectly calibrated mix of raw and cooked ingredients with very specific nutritional purposes, the resulting dishes helping to boost concentration and energy, and balance blood-sugar levels.

Living enzymes are retained in the preparation technique, all in order to help cleanse the body from the outside in.

A proper healthy diet requires enjoyable food, intelligent portions, variety and balance—not calorie counting. COMO Shambhala provides the healthy food facts without the hype.

Making lifestyle changes and adopting healthy eating principles is much easier in a controlled environment. On arrival at COMO Shambhala, guests receive a one-on-one health consultation with the in-house dietician, who will assist in devising a personalised eating plan.

COMO Shambhala Cuisine advocates local, organically sourced ingredients wherever possible. Menus feature little salt and avoid processed sugar. Instead, natural sweeteners like stevia are used, which doesn’t alter the body’s blood-sugar levels.

Traditional fasting items include juices, broths, elixirs, vitamin boosts and organic teas. We also make wheatgrass shots readily available.

Just because a meal is healthy doesn’t mean to say it won’t be important, substantial and above all, memorable.

Dining venues are flexible and can be a romantic dinner for two on the terrace, a family meal in-residence or a meal in one of COMO’s two estate restaurants.
