Kaftans at the ready for lush respite at the gorge-y COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali. Set in 23 acres of forest, this ultra-secluded, world-class luxe health retreat hovers atop the beautiful Ayung Gorge in the verdant hills of Ubud.
Along with natural wood and rattan rooms, suites and villas (some with private Jacuzzi), lucky guests will find an entourage of yoga masters, Ayurvedic doctors, nutritionists, Tai’Chi and Qigong teachers available around the clock to complete the transformation from stressed out to blissed out.
The sensational spa – one of Asia’s best – offers individual treatments in rainforest splendor, while the healing hydrotherapy uses water from CSE’s very own Holy stream, ‘The Source’. Up for a work out? Expel those toxins with mountain biking, pilates, hiking, climbing, whitewater rafting or just a spot of local sightseeing. After a long day in the forest, your body will rejoice courtesy of the signature ‘raw-ganic’ and lightly cooked eats at Glow, or there’s excellent regional Indonesian cuisine at Kudus. If there’s been too much work (or play!) on your agenda, this retreat will help you hit reset and have you back on top in a jiff!
