ABOUT THE VILLA

For a central-Seminyak property, Villa Shambala is exceptionally spacious, amazingly peaceful and totally charming. Set within a private walled garden, Shambala effortlessly fuses old and new, borrowing its eclectic style from the intricately carved traditional wooden joglo houses of Java, and blending it with today’s requisite comforts.

This single-storey villa comprises a main pavilion and a three-bedroomed guesthouse, set at opposite ends of a luxurious 19-metre swimming pool. The open-plan design of the main building allows natural light to flood into the space and accentuates the honey-coloured detail of the recycled teakwood that is the signature feature of Shambala. An ornate chandelier hangs from the soaring rafters of the century-old roof in the comfortable and stylishly furnished living room, which is adjoined by an elegant dining area where a table for ten makes the perfect setting for a dinner party. To the rear of the dining space is a chic, custom-designed kitchen incorporating an island workstation and breakfast bar.

Villa Shambala’s master suite features an exquisitely carved joglo canopy above the bed and a huge ensuite garden bathroom. The master and second bedroom sit beyond the living areas, to the rear of the villa, and both overlook a peaceful water feature complete with large stone Buddha and tranquil lily pond. The three guesthouse bedrooms, all ensuite, are arranged around a second TV room, brightly decorated and perfect for children. Villa Shambala features a fully equipped media room complete with large screen projector, surround sound system, DVD and satellite TV with an extensive library of DVDs, CDs and books for guests’ enjoyment. WiFi is also available throughout the villa.

Leading away from the main building, past circular outdoor lounge seating under a shady ‘sail’ canopy, is a double spa room where guests can enjoy massage and Ayurvedic treatments administered by skilled therapists.

Guests at Villa Shambala are served by a wonderful team of staff including a house manager, private chef, housekeepers, butler, gardeners and security guards, all dedicated to ensuring that you have the perfect holiday.

BEDROOMS

Master Suite

The regal master suite features an exquisite hand-carved teak canopy above its queen bed. Flowing white net encloses both the bed and ottoman at its foot creating the effect of a ‘room within a room’. Warmly decorated in natural materials, this luxurious bedroom’s wooden furnishings are complimented by exotic artefacts from around the world and accentuated with rich tones of purple and cream, inviting lazy mornings and romantic nights. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors can be opened onto the lily pond and tranquil water feature for relaxing, breezy afternoons. The master suite’s spacious bathroom features a semi-sunken stone tub and a rain shower.

 

Guest Bedroom

Villa Shambala’s four air-conditioned guest bedrooms are all luxuriously appointed with queen-size beds, courtyard bathrooms, plush interiors and natural finishings of wood, stone and glass. The first guest bedroom is situated in the main pavilion, across the lily pond from the master suite. This lovely room is furnished with a four-poster bed and plush cushions and linens. The large outdoor ensuite features a double slate-coloured stone bathtub, twin washbasins with ‘Hollywood lighting’ lining the mirror and a tropical rain shower. The three comfortable guest pavilion bedrooms all face onto a central TV room and are ideal for children or extended family groups as the beds can also be configured as twins.

 

DINING

Villa Shambala’s personal chef and kitchen staff are at your service to prepare daily breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The villa offers an extensive suggestion menu of delicious home-style meals featuring Asian and international dishes to cater to all tastes, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and children’s options. The chef is also more than happy to tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements and is always happy and willing to work with new recipes and ingredients to suit different palates.

Groceries and beverages are charged at cost plus a 20% service fee for shopping and transport. Guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance, and the staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan meals the evening before.

SPA

Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy Villa Shambala’s dedicated spa room by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:

Balinese massage

Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.

Foot reflexology

Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.

Body scrub

A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.

Manicure/pedicure

Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
