There is an abundance of excellent plush spa venues on Bali and COMO Shambala Retreat at Uma Ubud is amongst the most impressive of these. Uma provides an array of holistic and Asian-inspired treatments.
Tucked conveniently on the outskirts of Ubud, the spa takes peace and quiet seriously by utilizing its serene environment while letting white dominate the building’s colour scheme so allowing for a clean and relaxed atmosphere.
I was welcomed by the receptionist at the spa lobby and was soon guided to a spacious treatment room complete with small garden. The Como Shambhala Massage was my choice of pampering and this began with a warm towel foot cleaning. This 60-minute massage uses Uma’s signature blended massage oil that produces a calming of the mind and a bodily rejuvenation. A combination of traditional Balinese massage and Swedish massage techniques including long flowing strokes, kneading with medium pressure were applied to ease knots and tensions. The treatment ended with a great head massage that helped to improve blood circulation.
For those who would like to escape from the daily routines of life for a short and relaxing spell of indulgence, COMO Shambala Retreat at Uma Ubud is the place to go. It is amazing just how much the body can be relieved of stress and tension in such a short time.
