For many reasons, Villa Shambala stands out from the crowd. Shambala presents a modern-day Balinese architectural design, tropical elegance and earthy natural tones without the usual rustic overload. With five elegant ensuite bedrooms, numerous lounge and living spaces, Villa Shambala is the perfect choice for large groups or families sharing. Laze by the pool, get a Balinese massage in the spa room, catch a movie in the media lounge, then come together with your group to sip sunset cocktails, followed by a gourmet meal in the elegant dining room, cooked by your own private chef. Eclectic style teeming with charm, intricately-carved wooden joglo finished with oversized couches and cushions, hammocks and spaces everywhere designed for laid-back luxury – and all hidden in an exquisite walled garden in the best part of town. It is hard to believe that this tranquil luxury villa is just a short stroll away from the bustling Seminyak. (www.villashambalaseminyak.com).
