    “Perfect place, perfect service! HEAVEN ON EARTH...”
    5 of 5 stars TRIP ADVISOR

    I brought a yoga group there to Shambala and we were all really happy. Such a wonderful place - like Heaven on Earth (which "Shambala" means...). The rooms are uncredibly beautiful. You rarely find such beautifully decorated places - with soo much love in really ALL THE DETAILS!!

    And the Staff is so kind and heartful. I never saw something similar anywhere else. They are all really spiritual. We had the possibility to attend in a local fulmoon-ceremony in Bondalem's temple. The security man plays guitar and sings Mantras on the beach. The gardener is part of the local Gamelan orchester. And so on. The welcomed us with Young coconuts and a rain of flowers... We had a great farewell ceremony - which the staff gave us on our last day in Shambala - with a flower mandala and mantra chanting and dancing... so gorgeous!

    There is a beautiful Yoga-Temple (octagonal - as all the rooms / huts in Shambala). And a nice pool under palms... And it's own Spa. You can go with the fishermen of the neighbourhood to a spectacular sunrise-dolphin-tour in the morning... we were blessed and saw nearly 100 dolphins that morning... (and even without dolphins it's absolutely worthwile).

    For me Shambala is really an Insider Tip. A place I recommend to everyone who goes to Bali. Also for individual trips it's highly recommendable!

    And the food!! I forgot about the DELICIOUS food! It's vegetarian and sometimes there is fish. Such a variety and freshness. We LOVED the food!

    In the sea in front of Shambala you can go snorkeling.

    There are three houses in front of the ocean. And more in the second raw. The oceanfront-houses are really beautiful! But you may need earplugs for sleeping (the ocean can be noisy...).

    We were in Shambala (now called SHAMBALA) once with my family and this time with a yoga group. We loved both! And will surely come back.

    My Dear Ilona,

    Thank you very very much for offering the paradise Shambala (now called SHAMBALA). We had a wonderful time!

    The group loved it so much, the staff, the Yoga hall, the rooms, the food, the gardening and everything!

    I can't fully express my gratitude to you and Shambala. Thank you very much for making it happen, for all you done for us!

    I would like to say Shambala is the best place in Bali so far as I know.

    Ilona you do a great job to build up such a beautiful place. I really appreciate your energy and hard working. From your staff I can see how you lead them.

    I'm looking forward to going back again, and next time hope I can finally meet you beautiful woman~

    Again, endless appreciation!

    Words of appreciation from German Seminar leaders:
    Dear Ilona and Don

    After having landed safely back in Germany, we want to thank you from our hearts for a truly fantastic and dream-come-true like stay at Shambala. (now called SHAMBALA)

    We experienced the week at Shambala as a small eternity in which Heaven on Earth became visible.
    Your dream-team received us with great heartfelt energy and attended to all our needs without ever feeling obtrusive. With full attention to all our needs they took great care with us.

    The food was wonderful and very varied and tasty for our vegetarian needs. I also thank you for the additional fruit and drinks.

    The accommodation in the dream-houses was beyond comparison to other accommodations! We had felt so great in our wonderfully, individually and with much attention to details decorated homes. We gratefully received all the messages and the good energy of the wall-hangings in our bodies, minds and souls.

    Christian and I loved our Temple and daily before sunrise we got up, and swayed in the sounds of the ocean. We especially celebrated the hours before breakfast as our sacred time.

    It is truly enchanting on this northern coast of Bali to experience the sunrise and the special atmosphere of sunset time.

    We also loved and used the Pool a lot. The extra heated water (we had the water-level lowered for our WATZU Treatments) was perfect for our participants and they all lavished in the bliss of Aqua-Sound-Floating, as we call it. The floating beyond gravity, being carried and being supported, and being able to dance and move under water weightlessly truly opens doors to another dimension.

    We really did use the Spa, and enjoyed letting go of stresses, tensions and old issues.

    For our Good-bye we were overwhelmed by the flower magic, the music and the festive celebration of your staff, which we were offered in the Temple.

    Again a great Terima Kasih and wishing you at Shambala all the very best.
    We hope of course to come back! We will let everyone know and recommend Shambala.

    We are hoping to meet you and Don maybe even in Germany.

    with lightful and resounding good bye,

    Jutta und Christian


    Liebe Ilona, lieber Don,

    Nachdem wir alle wohlbehalten wieder in Deutschland gelandet sind, möchten
    wir uns nochmals sehr herzlich bei Euch für unseren wahrlich traumhaften
    Aufenthalt in Shambala bedanken.

    Wir haben die Woche bei Euch als eine kleine Ewigkeit erlebt indem sich uns
    der Himmel auf Erden offenbart hat.

    Eurer liebevolles Team hat uns mit grosser Herzlichkeit aufgenommen und uns
    unaufdringlich, umsichtig und aufmerksam umsorgt und alle unsere Wünsche
    erfüllt. Das Essen war sehr fein und bei unseren vorwiegend vegetarischen
    Bedürfnissen vielseitig und bekömmlich. Danke auch für das Obst und die

    Die Unterkunft in den Traumhäusern war mit anderen Unterkünften
    unvergleichbar. Wir haben uns alle sehr wohl gefühlt in unseren
    wunderschönen und  individuellen, mit viel Liebe zum Detail ausgestatteten
    Heimen und haben die Behaglichkeit, Harmonie und Schönheit samt guter
    Botschaften der Wandgehänge als gute Energie mit Leib und Seele dankbar

    Christian und ich haben unseren Tempel sehr geliebt und sind morgens immer
    schon vor Sonnenaufgang aufgewacht, gewiegt vom Klang des Meeres und haben
    die Stunden bis zum Frühstück inklusive Ozeanbad als andächtige Feier
    besonders genossen.

    Es ist wirklich zauberhaft von Eurer Küste aus sowohl den Sonnenaufgang
    erleben zu können, wie auch die Stimmung des Sonnenuntergangs.

    Den Pool haben wir auch ausgiebig genutzt. Die Wärme war nachhaltig und wir
    konnten alle unsere Teilnehmer in die Wonnen des Aqua-Sound-Floatens, wie
    wir es nennen, einführen. Das schwerelose Schweben, Gehaltensein und auch
    unter Wasser bewegt werden öffnet ja nochmal eine ganz andere Dimension.

    Die Spa haben wir viel wahrgenommen und sehr genossen und viele
    Verspannungen und Altlasten konnten gelöst werden.

    Beim Abschied waren wir überwältigt von dem Blütenzauber im Gruppentempel
    und dem tollen freudigen klangvollen Feiern mit Eurem Team.

    Nochmals ein grosses Terima kasih und viele gute Wünsche für Euch und
    Shambala. Wir werden Shambala natürlich weiterempfehlen und möchten selbst
    gerne wiederkommen.

    So hoffen wir Euch ein anderes mal in Shambala anzutreffen, auch wäre es
    eine Freude Euch vorher mal in Deutschland zu begegnen,

    mit lichtvollen und klingenden Grüssen,

    Jutta und Christian

    “Our stay could not have been more perfect”
    5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

    I brought a group of 9 women here for a retreat, and we could not have been happier with our stay. Even before our arrival, all of my communication with the owner, Ilona, was very clear and easy (many places in Bali this part is difficult). Ilona was extremely helpful, and made organizing our retreat a breeze.

    From the very moment we arrived, we were welcomed and felt as if we were part of the family, and this continued throughout the week. The staff was so friendly and helpful, and anything we asked for, we were happily accommodated.

    The food was delicious, fresh, healthy and plentiful. The accommodations were so beautiful, with traditional Balinese style and very comfortable beds. The grounds were equally beautiful and well maintained. The temple where we did yoga each morning with Sandra ( we love Sandra!!) and had all of our meetings, was truly magical.

    We were right on the ocean and could walk right out to snorkel, which we did most every day. This is not a white sand beach and turquoise water, as you might expect in this part of the world - black sand from volcano, water a darker blue/grey - but it's very warm and easy to swim in, and the coral and fish are plentiful and beautiful.

    We are already planning out next retreat at Shambala, and this time we'll stay a little longer. We loved everything about this place and the people! THANK YOU!!

    Room Tip: The oceanfront rooms are spectacular!

    FROM a GROUP LEADER from PERTH AUSTRALIA received 2. Sept. 2014

    Hello Ilona & Sri,

    Thank you both so very much for your lovely Birthday wishes.
    Ilona the Kwan Yin card is beautiful.

    I'm struggling to find the words to thank you & all of your staff at Shambala for supporting Julius & I
    in providing such an amazing Retreat for our 10 ladies.

    Ilona your Retreat Centre is exceptional, the location perfect.
    The facilities are beautiful, comfortable & provide the perfect support for people doing deep healing & processing.
    You're staff are loving, devoted, efficient, friendly & absolutely wonderful.
    The food your staff provide is full of love & goodness.
    The girls in the day spa complimented what Julius & I were doing with our ladies perfectly.
    We have received nothing but very positive feedback from all our Ladies about everything provided at Shambala.

    On a personal note.
    Both Julius & I found it very easy to 'work' at Shambala.
    Your staff went above & beyond caring for us both. Making sure we had what we needed so that we could
    teach & support our Ladies - facilitate our Retreat to the best of our abilities.

    Julius & your staff were also very sneaky thoroughly spoiling me for my birthday.Laughing
    Our last night - Friday night I was showered in flowers & cake lovingly made & prepared by Edy & your staff.
    Edy, Made & Dewi are wonderful.

    Thank you!!
