Magnificent - Better than 5 star - Villa and staff are amazing

Our family has been to Bali more than 10 times now, and this is by far the best villa my family and friends have ever stayed in. The staff are wonderful, they really help you step into holiday mode. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and they are fantastic with kids as well. To be honest, you could spend a week at the villa, and not step outside the villa's walls, the quality / service of the meals and drinks was first class. Thank you again for a lovely stay, we will be back!

Tropical Paradise

Villa Shambala was everything we hoped for and more! The villa is stunning with a mix of traditional Balinese decor and modern amenities with living areas surrounding the huge central pool, a fantastic meeting area for our family. It was an absolute haven to come home to each day, immediately relaxing when you wander into the enclosure and enjoy the luxurious surroundings (and in-house massages and facials!) As much the villa was beautiful, our stay was made even better by the wonderful staff, all of whom quietly go about their duties but make you feel so special. We would like to make a special mention of our great butlers, Aju and Jack who were both sensational, Aju's warmth and personality made sure we had everything we needed and Jack made the best cocktails! Nothing was too much trouble and their courteous and professional service made our stay at the Villa absolutely PERFECT! We celebrated my 60th birthday with a BBQ dinner at the Villa, all the staff went to so much trouble to make this a very special event. We enjoyed breakfasts, lunches and dinners prepared by the chef which were all fantastic. I will never forget this holiday and is probably the best ever. Everyone loved this villa and hopefully we can come back one day! Highly recommend, you wont be sorry!

A 60th Birthday to remember

My first impression of Shambala was Wow. We arranged friends and family to come to Shambala for my 60th birthday. The staff made our time here very special and catered to our every need no matter how small.On the special day we had a special dinner in the villa that we prepared by world renown chef Ryan Clift based on the menu from Grow, his local restaurant, featuring all local produce. It was a one of the best meals I ever had and was supported by the staff's attention to detail on that night. In fact the whole week will be one I never forget. The tropical grounds were a haven from the real world. I wish I could stay for another month. Thank you to Ministry of Villas and the staff at Shambala for making my 60th birthday so special.

Absolute luxury. Feel like a rockstar, chill like a Yogi.

Perfectly situated in the heart of Seminyak, the more stylish part of Bali, Villa Shambala was perfect for travelling as a family of 6 for two weeks with 3 teenagers who had their own bedrooms and bathrooms up one end of the 19m pool and a littly up the other in the main house who felt like a true princess in the garden suite. All staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive without crowding our space. You really don’t know they are there until they suddenly appear offering a fresh towel or a cold drink. Menu selections were varied and delicious. The convenience of booking massages in the poolside spa room (although more expensive than the $6 ones down the street that our sons went to) were well worth it and having a private yoga instructor attend each morning were the icing on the cake. Villa Shambala is a stunning oasis that we truly enjoyed hanging out in, and returning home to after a day of shopping or dining which we would highly recommend to others who expect only the best and most luxurious of accommodation and service.

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.

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.
