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
Surrounded by lush tropical jungle, Villa Nag Shampa is an 8-bedroom oasis of serenity near the traditional Balinese village of Taro, which is about a 20-minute drive from Bali’s arts and cultural centre of Ubud. Here multiple pools surround pavilions that were built by hand with natural materials like local wood and stone. The interiors are richly decorated with Indonesian textiles and colonial style furnishings, and outdoors there are plenty of places to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings. Perfect for group retreats or those looking for a peaceful hideaway far from Bali’s busy tourist areas, Villa Nag Shampa is a true hidden gem.
Villa Nag Shampa was built with peace, privacy and rejuvenation in mind. Although just a short drive from Ubud, the villa enjoys a seductively secluded location amid the natural terrain of central Bali. Traditional Indonesian architecture and design can be found throughout from the gorgeous timber flooring and ceilings to the elegant artefacts and artworks, and open-air pavilions that blend into the tropical environment. The luxurious stand-alone suites ensure the utmost privacy, while the spacious lounge, dining room and al fresco living areas are ideal for social gatherings. Adding to the experience is a yoga bale, luxurious spa, and a full complement of professional staff on hand around the clock.

The social heart of Villa Nag Shampa is the spacious main living area with sumptuous sofas, colourful daybeds and intimate corners for one-on-one conversations. The living area is open on all sides to allow fresh air to flow through and offer views out to the garden. Next to the living pavilion is another open-sided pavilion that houses a huge wooden dining table and a walkway that leads to the kitchen with its restaurant-quality equipment. Both pavilions can be re-configured for small or large events and gatherings. For pure pampering, there is also an on-site spa with a tranquil relaxation area, massage bed, and a huge bathtub hewn from a solid piece of rock.
At the centre of the property lies the lagoon-like pool, which encircles the open-air yoga bale and is encircled itself by a vast wooden deck with cushioned sun loungers and umbrellas. For those who prefer dining outside, the pool deck is the ideal spot for al fresco meals made with fresh ingredients from the organic garden and sunset BBQs. Lush gardens radiate out from the sundeck with paths that lead to the stand-alone suites, three of which have private pools and wooden decks with additional sun loungers.
The master suite at Villa Nag Shampa is simply spectacular with rustic-chic furnishings, a canopied king-sized bed outfitted in crisp white linens, and a lounge area with a TV and DVD player. A walk-in closet provides plenty of storage, while the huge ensuite bathroom has a separate rain shower and a stone bathtub that looks out to the lush greenery of the forest. The master suite also has its own private pool surrounded by manicured lawns and swaying palm trees.
The seven guest suites at Villa Nag Shampa were designed for connecting with nature, so each includes a spacious terrace, patio or balcony that maximises views of the gardens and forest. Huge windows and sliding glass doors also help merge indoor and outdoor living. Four of the suites have king beds and the other four have two twin beds that can convert to a king, which is ideal for families or larger groups. Each suite also has a beautiful ensuite bathroom with a rain shower, a huge stone bathtub, and bath products made with organic essential oils.
