The name Wanakasa means ‘forest in the mist’, which is a fitting name for this impressive 5-bedroom residence fashioned like a five-star treehouse on the renowned COMO Shambhala Estate, an award-winning residential health retreatview
Set on the lush grounds of the award-winning COMO Shambhala Estate residential health retreat, Umabona Residence is a spectacular 5-bedroom hideaway with sweeping views of Bali’s Mount Batukaru volcano. This is the grandest residence at COMO Shambhala Estate with ample space to spread out over two levels including spacious light-filled suites, a stunning infinity pool, and an expansive living and dining area with a wood-fired pizza oven. Guests also have access to the estate’s five-star facilities and services including steam rooms, spring-fed pools, wellness consultations, healthful cuisine, and a personal assistant.
Umabona Residence was inspired by the majestic Majapahit palaces and pleasure gardens, so there are intricate hand carved reliefs, antiques, and elegant furnishings throughout. A sparkling swimming pool looks out to the jungle and is surrounded by sun-dappled decks, and the indoor and outdoor living and dining areas offer plenty of space for entertaining. All of the suites share the common areas, while the COMO Suite has its own private pools, lounge, and dining room. Guests can take an individual suite in the residence or book the entire space for an exclusive experience.
Umabona Residence’s stylish interiors include cool air-conditioned lounges where guests can escape from the sun, a peaceful library for catching up on some reading, and a dining area for indulging in COMO Shambhala’s nutritious cuisine. There is also a study that can be converted to a private spa treatment room or an extra bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom. Mod-cons include complimentary Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a DVD player, and access to 24-hour concierge services.
THE COMO SHAMBHALA SUITE
The COMO Shambhala Suite is the largest and most luxurious at Umabona Residence with two generous king-sized bedrooms, a private infinity pool, Jacuzzi, and indoor plunge pool. This gorgeous suite also has a spacious living room and dining room set apart from the main common areas. The extra space and privacy makes this an ideal option for couples looking for an intimate escape or families with children.
THE TERRACE & GARDEN SUITES
The two terrace suites and the garden suite have tastefully appointed bedrooms with either a king-sized or queen-sized bed and beautiful ensuite bathrooms designed with natural stone. The terrace suites have private outdoor areas surrounded by lush greenery, and all have access to the residence’s common areas. And like the COMO Suite, these living spaces also have luxe amenities like mini-bars, yoga mats, and COMO bath products.
The turquoise infinity pool spans the front of the residence and is flanked by sundecks with cushioned loungers that rest on either side of a stone wall with a gently trickling waterfall feature. The decks offer views through the jungle canopy to Mount Batukaru and make for the perfect spot for sundowner drinks or meals under the stars.

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.
