***Top Vacation Rental***
***Rated Excellent*** based on guest reviews.
Rustic Elegance in the lush tropical forest, Perfect Hideaway for a couple/honeymooners.
Shamballa Residence is a spiritual and tranquil haven that offers an intimate and indulgent private villa experience.
Located in mystical Ubud, a world famous centre of spiritual and physical wellness, of painting, performing arts, literature, carving, ceremonies and traditional culture on "The Island of the Gods", Bali.
This romantic hideaway magically perched atop a ravine overlooking the mystic Wos River is the ideal secluded location for a couple or small group.
Many centuries ago Hindu priest Maharishi Markandya travelled from Java and upon discovering the healing properties of the area settled in for meditation and healing practices.
Shamballa Residence, situated in the midst of a charming small traditional village, is truly blessed with the gifts that Mother Nature has to offer. During the day enjoy seeing colourful butterflies and birds whilst taking in the fragrance of the frangipani trees on the gentle tropical breeze. At night marvel at the stars and watch the fireflies. In the morning absorb the spiritual energy from the mist that rises up from the sacred river deep down in the valley below.
The perfect escape to revive and cleanse your soul and undoubtedly a unique retreat to experience the closest place to heaven on earth.
There are many places you might visit but this is the only one you will want to come back to time and time again.

“BREATHTAKING SCENIC VIEWS”
I am a travel agent at Flight Centre, and I was lucky enough to stumble across this villa recommended to me by my Team leader. If you love privacy, tranquility and laying around the gorgeous infinity pool gazing into the greenest and most serine forest while tanning and being attended to by your own personal butler. This villa is for you! Every morning they go to the markets to arrange for the meal you have pre ordered so you know that everything you eat will be fresh! Try the Watermelon fruit crush - it was to die for! I lived off of them! The staff are so polite and helpful and really made my partner and I feel at home! On arrival they will give you a sort of xylophone instrument to play when you would like to be attended to which was cool because i love all the little things and was pretty fascinated by this haha!! Just remember, it is a PRIVATE villa, it is about 15 minutes from the centre of UBUD, so if you're planning on doing any tours or shopping, just remember to book them earlier rather than later or you may find you'll be too lazy to get up and venture out. haha! It is open living, an experience you can rarely find in a villa, when you arrive your mouth with drop as you walk into this modern but very cultural place. It gives you a lot of time to litterally do what you want to be doing on a holiday - RELAX, REJUVINATE AND EAT! lol Overall, I will recommend this for majority of people although this may not be ideal for people who don't like nature and are more suited to the city life as you will see an abundance of living creatures; frogs, baby geckos, mosquitos etc.
my husband and I spent our honeymoon at Shamballa Moon and had a great time. The villa was beautiful, the staff was amazing, and the food was incredible. We had breakfast and dinner there every night and were never disappointed. They also helped us when we wanted to drive around Ubud. I would recommend this place to anyone. Although we are from the US and Bali is a very far travel for us, we would love to come back here someday!
“gorgeous villa with amazing view”
Villa Shamballa is absolutely stunning, slightly too remote maybe but the view makes up for it. The staff was lovely, a door or curtain to their entrance would add even more privacy. Overall, this is the perfect romantic stay, strongly recommended.
My husband, young daughter & I recently had the good fortune of holidaying at Villa Shamballa & Shamballa Residence. Our stay was fantastic. The villas are both gorgeous, very comfortable & tastefully decorated. A beautiful leafy location & outlook. The staff were very friendly, very obliging & unobtrusive. They were great with our daughter, who loved all the attention. The food was very good as well, as we mostly dined at the villa. All In all, great staff, great food, great service, great location. We highly recommend both Villa Shamballa & Shamballa residence. We'll definitely be going back.
“Dream come true!”
We can't even being to describe how incredible our stay was at the Shamballa Residence! It was by far our favorite of the 4 different hotels we stayed at in and around Bali and Lombok. We definitely recommend it to all ages of people- families, couples, friends. My boyfriend and I came to Indonoesia from the us for 2 weeks and the whole trip was truly a dream come true. Ubud was so magical and definitely our favorite stop in Bali. We highly recommend Sari Organik for a delicious lunch and beautiful walk through the rice villages. We also loved the Monkey Forest, the rice terrace/Campuhan Ridge walk and the Tegalalang Rice Village. Our meals at the Shamballa were absolutely wonderful and some of the best food we had the whole trip. We've been craving the delicious poolside jungle breakfasts and dinners since we got back home (especially the pumpkin soup and banana pancake). Nothing would be complete without the kindness and hospitality that Kadek and Kurnia showed us. They were outstanding and truly made us feel like home! The grounds and the decor in the residence are unbelievable. The open air concept made us feel like we were in the jungles of Bali (oh wait we were :)) and no accommodations will ever compare to Shamballa. We definitely hope to come back and stay here whenever we can fit in another 2 week getaway. All in all we fell in love with this secluded hideaway and know you will too!
“Romantic & Spacious Private villa”
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Shamballa Residence, which is about 5min drive from Ubud market. As in the description, the property is surrounded with greenery. The owners have great tastes in decorating the house. We like how the place is rustic yet modern at the same time. The highlight of our stay is the level of service that they have. Kadek and her team were truly helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed our conversations with them and really felt at home even in the short 2 days. Please do have lunch/dinner at the villa. Everything tasted so delicious, especially the Jimbaran prawns and the Soto ayam noodle soup! We also had massages by the pool. The masseuses were quite friendly and quite skilful. It felt especially good after a tiring day of activities. And it was quite reasonably priced. While the ambience is very serene and romantic, we brought up suggestions of adding more lightings in the villa. Currently the living room is quite well lit, but most other areas are too dim for reading. So families with young children or older folks may need to take note on this. That aside, everything else was very good. We really look forward to staying at Shamballa again!
“Shamballa Residence - A Romantic Hideaway in Ubud, Bali”
Recently my wife and I had the privilege of staying at Shamballa Residence in Ubud. This secluded and private enclave is located at the end of a long driveway that opens into the paradise of Shamballa Residence. The Residence is based on a traditional Balinese open house with alang alang roof and bamboo blinds. Greeted by polite and smiling staff, you immediately have the feeling of tranquility and homeliness as you enter the villa through to the luxuriously appointed lounge room overlooking the large infinity swimming pool. Next to the lounge is the large dining room, breakfast bale and powder room. A the other end of the pool are the lounge chairs for sunbathing and a massage alcove for your indulgence. Very enjoyable! There was also an enormous indoor/outdoor bathroom on the ground floor with a large shower and outdoor bathing tub. Upstairs was devoted entirely to the master bedroom and ensuite. The size of the master bedroom and lounge retreat is enormous and so relaxing. Open up the bamboo blinds and you let the world into your bedroom. The view over the tropical jungle down to the river below is breathtaking and serene. The ensuite like the downstairs bathroom is enormous. Also open air with roof cover is the jacuzzi spa bath tub with a view over the swaying palm trees and distant hills. We could have stayed there all day being pampered by the massaging air bubbles. We spent lazy days by the pool, having massages and the occasional trip to Central Ubud for shopping but it was always good to get back to the villa for the cooler air provided by the surrounding jungle and to swim in the crystal clear waters of the pool. At dinner time we sampled the beautifully prepared and tasty meals at the villa. Iluh's Chicken Curry was our favorite! In all we would have no hesitation in recommending a tranquil stay at Shamballa Residence to anyone. The villa, staff and location are all superb! Thank you for the memories. Stuart
We loved our stay at the villa and the personalized service we received. The villa is situated in a private, secluded road few miles away from Jalan Sangingan (Major street with very nice restaurants) & Ubud central (10 min drive). You can also walk to the river trails through Champuan Ridge to go to Ubud center for a picturesque hike. Although the fabulous pool & lush garden is hard to leave. The service staff are extremely friendly & attentive. Kadek makes excellent Balinese food and I would highly recommend eating a couple of meals right here. It was so easy to get a taxi at short notice, which is important because you will need a taxi to get anywhere from here.
“A truly magical experience”
The villa was set in the bush with beautiful views of the surrounding area. The staff were fantastic, very obliging very friendly and gracious. The food they prepared was devine! The villa itself was exquisitely furnished and very tasteful, beautiful and comfortable and very pleasing to the eye. The pool was fantastic too! We can't wait to come back again as we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Ubud.
“Refined luxury & seclusion in the hills of Ubud”
There is not enough superlatives to describe the accommodation, services, attentiveness & warmth of staff and not forgetting the amazing scenery that you're nestled within. I came away feeling pampered, relaxed and wishing that I could stay longer. Thank you for enabling us to share this Ubud experience.
