Perched on the edge of a dramatic river valley gorge, Villa Vajra is a dramatic feat of contemporary architecture integrated into the existing contours of the slope as well as the surrounding jungle and rice fields.view
Romance is a given at Shamballa Moon, a peaceful getaway perched on the edge of a ravine above the Wos River. This luxury 1-bedroom two-storey private villa offers peace and serenity for those looking to escape the stresses of modern-day life. With rustic-chic design and decor, gorgeous indoor and outdoor living areas, modern amenities and warm and welcoming staff who attend to your every need while still respecting your privacy, you’re sure to fall into the relaxing rhythms of Shamballa Moon shortly after arrival.
Your day at Shamballa Moon starts when you wake up to the mist rising from the river valley and sunlight filtering through the treetops. Enjoy a fine breakfast spread at the elegant dining table before settling into a sun lounger by your private infinity pool and whiling away the hours with a good book. You might be tempted to stay here all day watching the birds and butterflies flit among the flowers, but Bali’s arts and culture capital of Ubud is just minutes away, so you will probably want to get out at least once to do some shopping, gallery hopping and stopping at world-class cafes and eateries. Head back to the villa for sunset cocktails on the daybed next to the pool, and and end your day with a candlelit meal on the wooden deck under the stars.
The ground floor of Shamballa Moon is where you will find the beautiful living room adorned with whitewashed wood furniture and large sofas with soft white cushions. For those who like to spend quiet evenings in, there is an entertainment system with a flat screen TV, DVD and CD player and a Bose iPod dock. To one side of the living room, there is an open-plan kitchen, and directly in front of the living room and kitchen there is a covered dining pavilion that overlooks the pool.
The infinity pool looks as though it spills into the jungle at the edge of the property, and it is flanked by a wooden pool deck with sun loungers, and a poolside bale (pagoda) with an oversized daybed laden in pillows. By day, the sun sparkles on the water, and at night the pool is lit with soft lamps, which makes it the perfect setting for a midnight swim.
There is also a beautiful bathroom on the main floor that has a large terrazzo bathtub and an outdoor rain shower. For your convenience and comfort, there are also natural aromatherapy products and plush towels.
Head up the wooden stairs, and you will reach the bedroom—a breezy living space that spreads across the entire top floor and features a balcony overlooking the treetops of the jungle ravine. A four-poster king bed takes centre place, and distinctive touches like wicker furniture, Chinese lamps and a gauzy mosquito net add a touch of the exotic. The bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom.

Villa Shamballa Moon is very conveniently located in a small traditional village called Payogan whose meaning is place to do yoga. Although just 7 minutes drive from the centre of Ubud one senses they are miles away in the middle of a tropical forest. This hidden gem allows you to experience seclusion whilst remaining a stones throw from all conveniences.
A few minutes drive from the villa is the Sanggingan area offering a variety of culinary and shopping experiences. Among them the world famous Mozaic restaurant for fine dining and other places popular with tourists and expatriates such as Nuri's and Fly Cafe. There are also many art galleries, antique shops, boutiques, spas and a yoga studio.
The villa is about one hour and fifteen minutes from Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport.
