We entered the main gate and ….got showered with the flowers! This is how the wonderful staff at Shambala greets their guests. Lush gardens, spa, yoga & meditation hall, comfortable accommodation, delicious food, sound of the sea waves … a paradise was found! I can’t believe that there could be a person who would not fall in love with Shambala.... More

I was looking for a place to hide from the world and reduce stress. This place was fantastic and idealic. The staff were really great and friendly. We had a nice time. The rooms are beautifully appointed and I loved hearing the sea at night.

At a time when most of Bali has become over-developed and congested, ShangriLa offers a true escape and simple living, with dedicated and kind staff to cater to your needs. It really is simple living, so if you're the high maintenance sort, as with some other reviews, you will want to look elsewhere. I was here as part of a... More

Loved everything about it! The rooms so carefully put together and thought through. Each room has its own color, and everything well matched. The massages are a must, the staff amazing, the food out of this world. The ocean footsteps away. A place of paradise away from the chaos of every day life. I hope to visit it again!

I stayed here for 3 weeks, doing a retreat - It was one of the best experiences of my life. It is really hidden away from the outside world, which is wonderful as Bali becomes more and more crowded. There is a wonderful open pavilion/shala which is perfect for hosting large groups for yoga, dance, meditation etc. The kitchen has... More

Very homely, green and authentic. The owners are very special and welcoming people. The place is cosy and quiet. I was there on my own for 5 days just to relax and switch off my brain. Beautiful SPA. I hope to come back one day soon.

This really is a wonderful refuge in North Bali. The place is peaceful, food is very good, accommodation is inspiring and I would highly recommend their spa for massages. Right next to the ocean! We could get snorkelling equipment and go in right fem the shore to absolve the blue stars in the ocean.

“Ask for a room by the ocean”
 of 5 bubbles sar2120, 18 Sep 2016 | Read review
“Amazing room. Like a picture. Loved it!! The bed is very comfortable, relaxing chair, another bed that can sleep another person, even a pillow for your feet If you are using the table. The music was amazing, the stereo system provided in your room with the music. Also, your own water cooler is provided, so you always have access to water. 30 seconds walk to the pool, one minute walk to the ocean. And the flowers in the garden, so beautiful. The staff are amazing, the food beyond anything I could have imagined. Definitely a place I would love to visit again! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away, treat yourself to massages, these ladies are very well trained in what they do, and the cost is very minimal. ”
