Amazing

The villa was fantastic. The staff at the villa were wonderful. We wanted for nothing. They were attentive, yet discrete. They were kind, and their service outstanding. The facilities were excellent and we would go back in a flash.

Sublime villa secretly nestled in the heart of Seminyak.

The villa is tastefully decorated, with personalized surprises wherever you eye rests. The relaxing furniture, beautifully manicured garden, made for a relaxing stay away from the hustle and bustle of the Seminyak lanes. The friendly and professional staff always ready to serve. We never ate out as the kitchen chef and his staff made us amazing menus every day. Only negatives were the beach although within walking distance is unclean to swim in, and the area around the villa is very busy and contested.

Amazing villa but terrible Bali belly

Stayed at this amazing villa that you have to see to believe. Took my family of 12 to celebrate my 6oth birthday. Staff were so attentive with our every need including any ironing we needed doing, gin and tonics at our beck and call.... We could have just stayed in the villa and not ventured out. However we were so close to Ku deTa and a walk along the beach to La Lucciola ( my 60th birthday dinner party venue) and Potato Head. A must visit to Seminyak visitors. Only problem was that 7 of our group contracted Bali Belly on our 2nd day at the villa after not venturing from it so the chef had obviously neglected something...perhaps washing the salad. However the food was spectacular. The Bali Belly was so bad we needed a doctor with injections ($270 each) Great doctor though. And unfortunately it put a real dampner on our trip as it took awhile for people to recover. Aside from that we loved the way the staff loved our children ( 10,6 and 5 months) and looked after them during everyone’s recovery. Also blown away after we got back from my birthday dinner at La Lucciola ( amazing food) with my bed adorned with a huge happy birthday flower garland. They really tried to make our stay perfect. A spectacular way to celebrate my 60th birthday. Just avoid Bali Belly!

Love Love Love!!!!

Stayed here in December for a week with my family to celebrate my mum's 60th. Have got to say, this place exceeded expectations! Staff are fun, very friendly and accomodating; always bringing us drinks as we floated around in the massive pool. They even make cocktails by request if you have the alcohol required. Butler, Jack makes a fantastic espresso martini. The rooms were clean and well presented. We had dinner at the villa a few nights and the food was fantastic! Our chef, Katut did a delicious BBQ for us one night and the staff decorated the villa with traditional decorations. We were also treated to our own cooking class which was absolutely delicious. I also have to note that butler, Ayu is a champion! Always ensuring we were comfortable and catering to all requests - taxis, drinks, dinner reservations, ironing - you name it! Would definitely recommend this place. You won't be disappointed and you won't want to leave the villa!

Amazing staff, older-style villa

My family celebrated Christmas (and my birthday) at the villa and the amazing staff went above & beyond to ensure we had a wonderful stay. The chef, Katut, created delicious feasts for us - no request too difficult. Normally restaurant people, we opted to stay at home more often than not. We had some vegan guests well catered to. Our butlers, Abu & Dewa, were fabulous, ensuring we organised, anticipated our needs and always ensuring drinks in hand. Decorated my bedroom for my birthday as a surprise with a fresh flower mural. We went to a larger modern villa for 2nd part of holiday to accommodate more guests (Villa Anam) and were sorely disappointed in comparison. Villa is older style, but it meant the gardens were more luscious and ebstablished. Gorgeous pool, private & quiet location - less than 10 min walk to heart of Seminyak if you didn't use supplied scooters (another bonus). Shower pressure (for the master bed at least) was non-existent. Highly recommend due to the incredible staff.

Description

A private hidden oasis

Villa Shambala - Bali's best-kept secret of sophisticated luxury. This exclusive five-bedroom estate is charmingly nestled off a secluded laneway in the heart of bustling Seminyak. A private, hidden oasis offering guests the convenience of a glamorous locale, yet the feeling of complete seclusion amidst spacious, tropical grounds. Boasting five bedrooms, spread across generous grounds with a separate guest wing for additional privacy, Villa Shambala seamlessly integrates both modern and traditional design blending the charm of original Indonesian architecture with the luxury and comfort of modern conveniences and interiors.

Villa Shambala's thoughtful use of space throughout its single story building makes this beautiful, elite villa the perfect choice for large groups or families sharing. Villa Shambala's privacy and exclusivity sacrifice nothing for its enviable location in the centre of trendy Seminyak with Bali's best dining, nightlife and shopping as close as the sweeping sands and world-class surf breaks of the beach nearby. Escape the hustle and bustle of Bali's most fashionable neighbourhood and enter your own idyllic tropical paradise inside Shambala's walls, where a full service team of friendly staff is dedicated to ensuring your every need is attended to.

Villa Shambala is a uniquely spacious property in the heart of Seminyak boasting an eclectic fusion of old and new, borrowed largely from the traditional wooden joglo houses of Java, but with a stylish blend of contemporary comforts. Set on a large estate, the single -story building comprises a main pavilion and a separate guesthouse, set at opposite ends of the dramatic 19m swimming pool.

Villa Shambala boasts the distinctive trapezium-shaped roofs of the antique joglo style, but does away with the enclosed, dark walls of this conventional design in favour of floor-to-ceiling windows and folding glass doors blurring the lines of indoor - outdoor space and offering guests a choice of alfresco or enclosed living. The open-plan design of the main building allows beautiful natural light into the central living and dining areas and accentuates the honey-coloured detail of both recycled teak and ornate carvings that are the signature features of Shambala. An ornate chandelier decorates the main living area sitting poised above a plush U-shaped lounge for the ultimate in relaxation. The living area spills onto a large alfresco dining area which can be fully enclosed and air-conditioned, or open to the breeze. The expansive full-service kitchen is a key feature of Villa Shambala giving guests the option of cooking for themselves, or utilising the villa's private chef and service staff. The modern, communal kitchen is integrated into the main living area - perfect for dinner parties, socialising and private events.

The master bedroom features a hand-carved teak joglo-style canopy, with huge outdoor ensuite, open- air stone tub, separate shower and double vanity. The master and second bedroom sit beyond the living areas, to the rear of the villa, and both overlook a peaceful water feature complete with large stone Buddha and tranquil lily pond. Villa Shambala features a fully equipped media room complete with large screen projector, surround sound system, DVD and satellite TV with an extensive library of DVDs, CDs and books for guests' enjoyment. Wifi is also available throughout the villa.

The living room incorporates the hand-carved teakwood core of an antique joglo, while timeworn statues from the eastern isles have been fondly placed in well-lit settings along with various beautiful pieces from all over the world - a testament to the owner's travels. Leading away from the main building, and past a circular, shaded outdoor lounge, sits a private double spa room where guests can enjoy massage and Ayurvedic treatments administered by skilled therapists. Beyond the pool sits the second pavilion, which houses three queen-sized rooms, surrounding a common living area which is fully equipped with an entertainment centre - perfect for children. Each of these queen bedroom features its own outdoor ensuite bathroom and the beds can be configured as queen or twins for guest flexibility.

Flanking the 19m rectangular swimming pool is a wide, manicured lawn featuring sun loungers and daybeds and is lined with tropical palms, frangipani trees and beautifully landscaped gardens for the ultimate in relaxation. Opposite, sits Villa Shambala's private double spa therapy room with two massage beds, air conditioning and folding glass doors for the option of open-air spa treatments. On either side of the main living pavilion are two outdoor entertaining and relaxing spaces. To one side, is a large circular lounge which is shaded by a discrete sail - perfect for afternoon cocktails or curling up with a good book. On the other side, is a beautifully designed outdoor dining area complete with massive twenty seat table and full stainless steel outdoor cooking facilities including a BBQ. The tranquil water garden sits quietly behind the living area and between the two main bedrooms offering peaceful sounds of trickling water. A large stone Buddha is the central feature and offers yet another area for guests to meditate or relax.

Villa Shambala has a wonderful team of staff including house manager, private chef, housekeepers, butler, gardeners, security guards and trained therapists on-call.
