We enjoyed a truly magical stay at Shambala. The atmosphere is very relaxed, and its decorated beautifully. The lay-out allows you to enjoy the privacy of your own bungalow, while enjoying the communal stunning pool and the bar area.
Shambala is in an ideal location for daily excursions up north or down south. The local beaches are a bit rocky to swim, but perfect location for those looking for some surf.
I have to say, the host, Pierre, is one of the best things about Shambala. So lively and such fun, while offering insight into the island and organising all opportunities that you'd want to indulge in. Also they offer an amazing breakfast.
All in all- a First Class venue!
Trip advisor. Shambala Lodge
Pierre and Deborah have created an exotic and tranquil environment at Shambala Lodge. The accommodation is superior with a Balinese feel. Each bungalow has a large comfortable bed with crisp linens and a mosquito net just in case. There is AC but if you open all of the doors you get a lovely breeze flowing through the space. The bathroom is outside with plants and some little frogs and insects. Lots of hot water in the spacious shower. The outdoor kitchen is very well appointed with every little detail from a salad spinner to a juicer. Coffee tea and rum are provided as are mosquito coils and dish soap. All the little things that are often forgotten were available. We often cooked a simple meal and enjoyed listening to the ocean waves and tree frogs as we ate. The reception area has good Wi-Fi and is a great place to hang out and chat to Pierre and Deborah or meet other guests. The pool also has Wi-Fi and is so refreshing. It is a salt water pool with more than sufficient sun loungers and umbrellas. From there you have s view of the sea. We took advantage of the yoga class and went for several walks from the property to different beaches. Shambala is a place to go and totally chill out. But it is also well situated for visiting Grande Terre and Pierre will give you lots of ideas of where to go. Very sad to leave after 9 perfect nights.
Shambala is a slice of paradise! The setting is beyond serene. Pierre is a doll, couldn’t be more helpful! Do not hesitate, every detail is perfection in this spectacular location. We will be back!
