The family-friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that your kids can run around happily, independently and safely without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means you are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
Villa Shambala is set up for families with children of all ages. Teenagers will be delighted to have the excitement of Seminyak on their doorstep; youngsters will love being close to the beach, and all will appreciate the independence of the guest bedroom pavilion and its cosy TV lounge. The garden offers plenty of open space and the pool is big enough for everyone to enjoy, with a shallow end for the little ones.
The team of friendly staff at Villa Shambala always make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives you plenty of flexibility and freedom to do your own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
The staff understand that children can sometimes be fussy eaters, and will happily prepare meals to cater for them. They can also prepare babies’ meals. Just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or cook and they will take care of the rest.
Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, highchair, books, games and toys) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy Villa Shambala’s dedicated spa room by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, this massage will have you totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet that correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines a gentle abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
Villa Shambala’s three single-storey pavilions all face the 19-metre pool. The villa’s main living pavilion lies at the far end and houses the master suite, garden room, living and dining areas, media lounge and well-appointed modern kitchen.
The guest pavilion is situated in complete privacy at the opposite end of the pool and comprises three ensuite bedrooms and the second TV room.
At the side of the pool is a private air-conditioned spa room with two massage beds, while comfortable outdoor seating and sun loungers are thoughtfully arranged poolside and throughout the gardens.

The master suite in the main pavilion invites romantic nights and lazy mornings with its luxurious queen bed under an exquisite hand-carved teak canopy, spacious bathroom with rain shower and a semi-sunken stone tub, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening onto the tranquil lily pond garden.
Also in the main pavilion, the garden room is perfect for relaxing and romancing with its four-poster queen bed with net canopy, ensuite garden bathroom with stone tub and rain shower, and outlook to the lily pond and water feature.
The three bedrooms in the separate guest pavilion are beautifully appointed with queen beds, ensuite courtyard bathrooms, plush interiors and natural finishes.
These bedrooms face onto a central TV room and are ideal for children or extended family groups as the beds can also be configured as twins.
All bedrooms are air-conditioned.
Villa Shambala offers many delightful options for socialising with your group, relaxing with that special someone or taking some time out on your own.
The light and breezy living room features a huge U-shaped couch set around a coffee table and glass doors opening onto the shade-dappled deck, where you will find more couches and lounges.
There are two dining options – the elegant indoor dining area where a table for ten makes the perfect setting for a dinner party, or, for alfresco meals, there’s a generous twenty-seat table in the barbecue area.
The chic, custom kitchen is designed to be as pleasing to holiday cooks as it is to guests who would prefer to take a back seat at the breakfast bar and watch the villa’s private chef do the work.
The media lounge in the main pavilion is fitted out with deep sofas, a massive digitally projected screen, DVD player and satellite TV with surround-sound, and an extensive library of DVDs and CDs. Or, if you want to go low tech, there are shelves of books and games.
The TV lounge in the guest pavilion features comfy couches, large screen TV and DVD player. WiFi is available throughout the villa.
Double spa room
The delightfully private spa room has two massage beds for in-house treatments, which can be easily arranged by the villa manager.
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.
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 Canggu Club, fifteen minutes away, with its state-of-the-art gym, tennis and squash centre. Round off your workouts with some fine international dining, then stock up on gourmet goodies at the nearby Canggu Deli.
- 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!
- Alternatively, view Tanah Lot from the 12th hole of Nirwana Bali Golf Course. Bordered by ocean and rice fields just down from the sea temple, no wonder this championship-standard course (designed by golf legend, Greg Norman) is frequently voted number one in Asia.
- 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.

We spent 7 days in Shambala Villa in Seminyak and I can say the stay was wonderful. Perfect service provided by Arya and Susi, tasty and nice food prepared by Ketut.

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.

Villa 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.

The 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.
Jill Fletcher, Australia
