Set on the edge a jungle-clad ravine just a short drive from Bali’s arts and culture centre of Ubud, Tirta Ening Residence is a peaceful escape where the stresses of the world seem to slip away. Natural materials like stone and wood pay homage to the tropical surroundings, and the contemporary furnishings, cutting edge technology, and 24-hour concierge services ensure you want for nothing. Guests can book single suites and share facilities like the lengthy infinity pool and spacious living and dining areas or book the entire residence for a more exclusive experience.
The main living and dining pavilion at Tirta Ening Residence spans an impressive 113 sqm and has open-sided spaces that allow for views of the lush gardens and forested ravine. Luxe touches like hand-carved doors and Chinese antiques add a chic ambiance. Inside there is also an air-conditioned library and elegant study with its own ensuite bathroom. Cross a stone bridge over the pond and you reach the covered lounge area surrounded by water and fragrant frangipani trees.
THE COMO SHAMBHALA SUITE
The COMO Shambhala Suite is the jewel of Tirta Ening Residence with over 90 square feet of space and a stunning Japanese water garden with a private waterfall that tumbles 25 metres into a pond. This suite also has a king-sized bed, private Jacuzzi, outdoor shower, and a huge bathtub carved from a single rock. Mod cons include complimentary Wi-Fi, individually controlled air-conditioning, satellite TV, and a private bar.
THE TERRACE SUITES
The three Terrace Suites at Tirta Ening Residence are relatively the same size, ranging between 63 sqm and 68 sqm. Each features either a king or queen bed, smooth polished wood floors, and huge sliding cgass doors complemented by curtains and roll-down screens for privacy. The suites also have private ensuite bathrooms with rain showers and luxe COMO bath products.
The main pool is the focal point at Tirta Ening Residence, as it looks out over the jungle ravine and offers plenty of space to spread out on the surrounding wooden sundecks. The loungers are perfectly positioned to catch the sun, and can be moved if guests want to create a space for outdoor dining and entertaining. Guests at the estate also have access to the resort’s main pool, gym, sauna, and steam rooms, and are welcome to sign up for activities such as cycling, river rafting, rice field walks and water purification ceremonies.

COMO Shambhala Estate is near Ubud, which is a 20-minute drive from this bustling artists’ town towards the centre of the island. Life is village-based, relaxed and largely rural, the landscape made up of rice paddies, distant volcanoes and forest, with COMO nestled in a clearing above a jungle-covered gorge beside the River Ayung. The Estate is a 90-minute drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport.
