We spent one week at Villa Shamballa in Payogan as part of our honeymoon. The villa is stunning - exactly as it looks in the pictures, but even more breathtaking when you see it in reality. We felt at home right away. The views from the villa are marvellous, and we spent hours just sitting in the lounge area or by the pool watching the greenery and playing with Mec, the house cat. What made our stay most memorable, however, were our hosts at the villa - two lovely Balinese ladies who looked after our every need and spoilt us with delicious home cooking! The villa is in a good location for exploring the local area; just a short taxi ride will take you into Ubud and plenty of local sites are easily accessed by car, and there are also numerous beautiful walking routes through rice paddy fields and opportunities for local bike tours in the area. We were excited about the villa's rural location; the only slightly negative point to mention would be the road that runs past on the hillside opposite the villa. While it is not a major road, it does get quite a lot of traffic, particularly in the mornings ("rush hour"?), so we initially found it hard to sleep as the bedroom has no external walls. The wildlife (crickets, frogs etc.) is also quite loud at night, so our airplane earplugs turned out to be real sleep savers!

We discovered Villa Shamballa through Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed for a minute. Emailing Wendy and Atsu was easy in our build up to the stay - all sorts of great advice was offered, including the organization of our first meal. We were met at Denpasar airport by their driver and driven the 1.25 hours to the villa. The driveway gives no indication of the paradise at the end of the road. Greeted by Iluh and Kedak, we were thrilled with what our eyes took in....sheer bliss! The villa is spacious, private and yet close enough to Ubud. A word about Iluh's cooking.....wow! So good! We easily walked to the nearest restaurants like Fly Cafe and Fuzion. A short 10 minute car ride takes you to central Ubud. Iluh helped us with our restaurant bookings to wonderful establishments such as Melting Wok Warung, Putu's Wild Ginger and Minami....all sensational eateries. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and breakfast by the pool is blissful. I fear our only problem will be getting another booking...so popular is Villa Shamballa that getting an available time is a real trick. The one concern that we had was the road on the opposite side of the valley....but it's very soon forgotten. Fireflies on our last night lit up the pool area, reminding us that we need to return soon and so we will!!

“Perfect 4 nights at Villa Shamballa”

We had such an amazing time at Villa Shamballa, it was the most luxurious accommodation we have ever stayed at with the most attentive and friendly staff.

Our highlights include-
-Morning yoga & massage by the pool, well worth it!!
-The sensational food - easily the best food we had in Bali (Seminyak & Ubud) - every meal we had we wanted to order again and again! (wish we had have done the cooking class to take home the chef's secrets!!)
-Happy hour by the pool & taking in the stunning view
-The open plan layout of the villa and service from the amazing & attentive staff - nothing was too much trouble for them and we are so grateful for them making our stay so perfect!

We would recommend making the most of lazing around in the sun by the pool in the mornings as the sun disappears from outdoor area in the afternoon - just be back in time for happy hour.
