Shamballa Moon is a 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 above the mystic Wos River is the ideal secluded location for a couple wanting a long or short term stay. Many centuries ago Hindu priest Maharishi Markandya travelled with monks from Java and upon discovering the healing properties of the area settled in for meditation and healing practices. Shamballa Moon, situated in the midst of a charming small traditional village, is truly blessed with all 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.
Shamballa Moon was easily the best place we stayed in during our trip to Bali! The place has to be seen to be believed. Waking up to the sunrise, delicious meals by the pool, and naps on the day bed - heaven! The outdoor bathroom was a personal highlight - so relaxing and a great way to start the day.
Stayed in Shamballa Moon for our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier. We arrived to flower petals decorating the entire villa both inside and out which was a very nice touch. Had never stayed in a villa before with outdoor bathrooms which was very cool, especially the rainfall shower and soaking tub. The service level of the staff was very high and meals were very good.
There are a hundreds of places to stay in Bali that look like a slice of paradise. I can honestly say that Shamballa Moon truly was a little piece of paradise. From the secluded location in the dense jungle, to the stunning decor throughout and wonderful staff we felt very spoilt!
The villa was like an oasis; always amazingly cool and tranquil even in the summer heat of Bali. My husband was at first very sceptical about staying so close to nature, being extremely susceptible to mosquito bites but the insect repellent came home untouched, without a single bite sustained. Thanks for the hospitality which we cannot fault.
