With a fabulous location right in the heart of Seminyak, this stylish 5-bedroom villa offers a luxurious, tropical space ideal for family and friends wanting instant access to all the action of Bali’s cosmopolitan hub. An easy walk brings you to the buzzing district known as ‘Eat Street’, home to a plethora of world class restaurants bars, and designer boutiques. Fabled Oberoi Beach, with its legendary surf breaks, golden sand and iconic beach club, Ku De Ta, is less than a kilometre from the villa.
A unique design showcases traditional Indonesian aesthetics, with the adoption of Javanese joglos (traditional wooden houses) intricately carved from honey hued teak. Contemporary western touches include floor to ceiling glass windows that allow natural light to stream through, enhancing the rich detail of these beautiful, century-old buildings. The owner is an artist and jewellery designer, and some of her unique creations are on display at Shambala, and available for purchase.
The single story property includes a main building with two bedrooms, and a separate guest house with three bedrooms, set at either end of a majestic 20m swimming pool lined with stately palms and manicured lawns. A poolside spa pavilion sets the scene for traditional massage, and specialised Ayurvedic treatments by skilled therapists. Stone statues, tropical foliage and atmospheric garden bathrooms throughout the villa further evoke the spirit of the enchanted isles of Indonesia.
A stunning, customised kitchen makes a convivial gathering place, with a cutting edge design incorporating extensive breakfast counter, stylish fittings and every imaginable gadget one could possibly need to cook up a banquet of the highest order. However, with a talented in-house cook most guests are content to be spoiled with gourmet meals prepared from an enticing suggestion menu. Equally, a full contingent of housekeepers, waiting staff, gardeners and security staff provide a welcoming, efficient and unobtrusive service.

Villa Shambala is in one of the most sought-after locations in Bali, offering you a complete hidden paradise in Seminyak’s ‘Golden Triangle’.
The villa is just minutes from Seminyak’s main street, Jalan Kayu Aya (also called Jalan Laksmana, Oberoi or ‘Eat Street’), where an impressive array of dining and entertainment options abound. Trendy boutiques, supermarkets and ATMs are all within a short walk of the villa, as are some of the island’s best known entertainment and dining venues, including Ku De Ta, W Hotel, La Lucciola, Potatohead beach club and other glamorous Seminyak staples.
Villa Shambala is also just 500 metres from the beach, where you can enjoy a variety of water sports, long seaside walks and beautiful Bali sunsets.
Things to do
The villa manager will typically have a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the local area. Invariably some of them will live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of Bali life.
In the meantime, here is a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the villa.
- Sports enthusiasts should head to Bali’s prestigious Finns Recreation Club, with its state-of-the-art gym and tennis, squash courts, 25-metre swimming pool, multi-purpose hall for basketball and badminton and a myriad of other attractions for all ages . Round off your workout with some fine international dining, then stock up on gourmet goodies at the nearby Canggu Deli. Villa Shambala provides daily membership access for six guests.
- Catch a wave, or several, at some of Bali’s best surfing beaches, only ten to fifteen minutes away. Among the string of naturally beautiful beaches, don’t miss long-time surfers haunt, Echo Beach – but all are in prime position for Bali’s legendary sunsets.
- On Canggu Beach, be sure to visit mystical Hotel Tugu Bali. Listed in the Robb Report (the World’s Best of the Best), Bali’s first museum-hotel is studded with priceless Indonesian artworks and antiques. The boutique hotel’s award-winning spa offers age-old Eastern therapies.
- Make the de rigueur pilgrimage to sacred Pura Tanah Lot, one of Bali’s biggest tourist magnets. Perched high on a craggy wave-lashed rock, this ancient sea temple is most popular at sunset, but we suggest guests go early morning to enjoy the location in peace!
- Fashionistas and shop-a-holics should hotfoot it down to Bali’s most cosmopolitan enclave, Seminyak. From Villa Shambala, guests are minutes away from stylish, global-inspired restaurants – such as Sarong and Métis, chic boutiques and hipper-than-thou bars on Seminyak beachfront.
- Drive west to explore the unchartered West Bali region, where the charming Tabanan Regency reveals terraced rice fields of emerald green, volcanic mountains and black sand beaches dotted with fishing communities – the treasures that Bali is famed for.
- For a day of culture and dramatic landscapes, head north to Mount Batukaru with its major temple and the nearby rice-fields of Jatiluwih, a UNESCO World Heritage sight; or to the mountain town of Bedugul. From here, explore three volcanic lakes, including Bratan, with its photogenic and stunningly positioned Pura Ulun Danu – one of Bali’s most important temples.
- Ubud, the cultural capital of Bali, is around an hour’s cross-country drive away. An easy day trip to admire the workshops and galleries and maybe watch one of the many dance performances in the early evening, or enjoy one of the many restaurants perched over gorges or rice-fields.
- Pulau Dive Charters offers luxury boat charters around the beautiful islands and waters surrounding Bali. They specialise in private fishing, surfing and diving charters and also offer unique personalised day trips to Nusa Lembongan. Perfect for a family day out on the water or with a group of friends.

Thanks a lot.

TG, Australia, 24-Apr-2017 - 02-May-2017Villa Shambala has been like paradise on earth. It is a haven from the hectic streets of Seminyak. The staff are very attentive without being intrusive. They anticipate your needs and wants and are extremely efficient. Nothing is too much trouble and service is delivered with a smile. All the staff are warm and friendly and genuinely care. The facilities are fantastic and everything is beautifully maintained from the rooms, to the pool and the gardens. The pool is a perfect temperature and is refreshing without being cold. Make sure you have lots of in house beauty treatments as the recommended therapists the Shambala uses were incredible and always consistent. The meals prepared by Ketut were just divine especially the Indonesian cuisine. Everyday we were spoilt by amazing breakfasts which were the perfect start to the day. We are sad to be leaving Villa Shambala, our home away from home.
Patrick Y, Singapore, 20-Apr-2017 - 23-Apr-2017Very refreshing stay for everyone of us. As the villa really care to both the young and old. Food was nice and staffs are friendly.

Fiona T, Australia, 22-Feb-2017 - 04-Mar-2017I have traveled the world for 86 years and this has been the most wonderful 10 days where we have been treated as family. The location and environment is perfect and the staff have made our stay wonderful and unforgettable. I would never hesitate to return and most certainly would recommend Villa Shambala to all my friends in Australia and England. I wish management and staff best wishes from all my family and look forward to seeing you all again in the near future.
Ron G, Indonesia, 06-Feb-2017 - 09-Feb-2017An amazing, beautiful, tranquil place hidden behind the outside world. The food has been prepared with such love and enthusiasm, and presented the same way. To the staff at Villa Shambala, you have made our stay exactly how I dream my/our holiday would be. The beautiful smiles, happy faces and the way you embraced us with your kindness. Nothing was ever too hard. We especially found such peace here. I can't wait to tell everyone about our stay. I think the fish and turtles may have put a bit of weigh on from the many hands feeding them. Sad to say goodbye to dear Villa Shambala. Leaving with beautiful memories. So many thanks.

Merryn S, Australia, 05-Jun-2016 - 10-Jun-2016Our expectations were exceeded in every way. We will recommend Villa Shambala and plan to return when possible. Great location, close enough to all the action but still very private, secluded and peaceful. The staff were very warm, friendly and nothing was too much.

Thank you so much! That was awesome.

Most at all, all Villa Shambala staff are so nice, genuine and caring to our every needs. We are so sad to leave but feel blessed to have spent our wonderful holidays in this magical place. We hope we can be back soon.
Mark C, Australia, 30-Oct-2015 - 03-Nov-2015Villa Shambala was an amazing villa to stay at. From the beginning of the trip upon our late night arrival, staff met us with food and drinks and explained the villa to us. The staff was always willing to help in anyway possible. Food was prepared when and how we requested. The staff was more than willing to arrange taxis for our group and reservations at local restaurants. I was extremely impressed with the house and would definitely recommend it for anyone staying in Seminyak.
Hannah Michell, Indonesia, 05-Jul-2015 - 11-Jul-2015We loved Villa Shambala! Staff were amazing, we were so sad to leave . Will definitely stay again.
Nandeeta M, Australia, 30-Jun-2015 - 04-Jul-2015Beautiful Property, well layout and absolutely amazing staff. Great Service and very helpful.
Jill Fletcher, Australia, 06-Jun-2015 - 13-Jun-2015The Villa is exactly as shown on the website - if not better. There is somewhere to "get away" for everyone. We were an extended family ( from 70 to 2) and the separate bedrooms worked very well. The outdoor eating area made for many happy family meals. The pool was large with a shallow end for younger children and deep enough and large enough for a decent swim. The staff were outstanding. There was always someone there for meals and the chef did a wonderful job of cooking for the children as well as the adults. Butlers, room attendants, gardeners were all helpful and nothing was too much trouble. A wonderful week. We had to drag ourselves away.
Julie G, New Zealand, 10-May-2015 - 12-May-2015Thank you to all the staff at Shambala. Every person worked hard to ensure all of the guest were catered for. Great breakfasts, canapes and dinners. Beautiful property, beautiful kind Yoga teacher. Excellent massage therapist. We all loved our stay. Gorgeous bedrooms and wonderful flowers.
Henny W, Taiwan, 20-Feb-2015 - 23-Feb-2015All the staff are very nice so friendly and very good service
Gabriella S, Hungary, 13-Feb-2015 - 19-Feb-2015The villa is absolutely amazing just like heaven. The property location is incredibly private, but walking distance to the beach and Seminyak restaurants and shops. The service was excellent and the staff is just amazing. Thank you for everything! We miss you and can't wait to go back.
Michelle S, Australia, 24-May-2014 - 27-May-2014Best Villa I've ever stayed in. No need to leave.
Jodi O, Australia, 09-May-2014 - 16-May-2014We had a fantastic stay in Villa Shambala. The villa is stunning and the staff were amazing. Annie was the chef, we ate some fabulous food from all around the world. Six adults and four children, plenty of room for kids to run around and plenty of space to not feel like we were living on top of each other. Couldn't have been any better. Thank you
Genevieve Montgomerie, Australia, 01-May-2014 - 07-May-2014Oh My!! we can't rave enough about this place - although I want to keep a lid on it due to the fact that we don't want it to become too popular we can't get back in!!! We help my 40th poolside soire here and could not have asked for a better time! the staff could not do enough - the food impeccable - the atmosphere fun and fabulous when we needed it and relaxing and indulgent when things needed to be slow! our guests and ourselves were truly blown away with Wayan, Arya and his team!! well done to a fabulous bunch and a true gem of a villa!
Jane P, Australia, 15-Apr-2013 - 23-Apr-2013We had a fabulous time and would love to come again!! It is a stunning villa, in a great location with excellent staff. Highly recommended.
Paola Talamini, Italy, 11-Aug-2012 - 26-Aug-2012Stunning Villa in the earth of Seminyak, only few steps away from the beach and KUDETA's spotlights. Despite the central location, we enjoyed peaceful time only surrounded by palms and bamboos trees. Bedrooms are spacious, charming and really well decorated, only one of the five bedrooms does not meet the same standards and it's more suitable for children or temporary guests rather than for a couple taying long term. The outside area is dominated by one of the biggest pools you can find in a private villa in Seminyak. And for better enjoying this slice of paradise we have been supported by a kind, unobtrusive and smiling staff. For sure it was one experience we all would like to repeat in the near future!
