Imagine having your own private villa perched on a stunning ravine overlooking a river valley and surrounded by jungle. You wake up in the morning and watch the mist rise off the river, dine on your own private outdoor patio next to the pool and recline in luxurious open rooms open to the gentle tropical breeze. Welcome to Villa Shamballa, an intimate private villa located in the village of Payogan, just minutes outside of Bali’s arts and culture capital of Ubud.
This tranquil 2-story, 1-bedroom luxury villa is the perfect spot for couples looking for a peaceful and romantic place to call your own during your holiday in Bali. Villa Shamballa rests on a ridge overlooking the Wos River and is surrounded on all sides by lush tropical foliage. The villa itself is an appealing mix of modern day amenities and rustic exotic charm, with state-of-the-art electronics, appliances and fixtures, stylish yet comfortable furniture, a gorgeous private pool and covered dining pavilion and plenty of outdoor space to connect with nature.
As you enter Villa Shamballa on the ground floor, you are immediately drawn to the chic indoor living room with its soothing natural wood accents and calming white decor. Large windows and open spaces in the walls allow the sunlight to filter in and there is a large flat screen TV, DVD player, CD player and plush sofas to settle in and enjoy some entertainment.
From the living room you can head outside to the clear turquoise infinity pool for a swim, or to one of the two wooden decks that flank the pool for some fresh air. There is also a covered dining pavilion outside next to the pool, so you can enjoy your meals looking out over the river valley or dine under the stars.
On the ground floor you will also find the main bathroom, a beautiful mixture of indoor and outdoor space with a large terrazzo bathtub and a rain shower that are open to the gentle breezes, yet still secluded for privacy. Guests are supplied with natural aromatherapy products, including one complimentary bath bomb, as well as high-quality towels.
The second-floor bedroom is where you can really kick back and relax. This spacious room has a soaring thatched roof, large windows that open to the treetops and offer views of the surrounding jungle, a comfortable lounge area with two teak daybeds, a sofa, coffee table, and iPod dock, and a lovely four poster king-sized bed set back from the lounge area with superb mattresses and pillows and fine Egyptian cotton sheets. The entire room is decked out in a colonial theme, with wooden floors and furniture, Chinese lamps, batik cushions and a mosquito net draped like a canopy over the bed. There is also a coffee and tea making station here for guest’s convenience and ensuite bathroom and dressing room.

Villa Shamballa 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 stone’s 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.
