Overview
More
Shambhala is an Asian Day Spa, offering a stress reducing, beauty enhancing and mind relaxing experience. Every aspect of Shambhala Spa has been designed to soothe - from fragrances in the enriched air and the mood music wafting quietly, to the muted colors of the interior, the natural materials and the fluffiness of freshly laundered towels. You can enjoy your treatments inside our stylish spa, get a relaxing massage in one of the oriental gazebos in our Balinese garden, or just sit and relax and enjoy the view. Shambhala Asian Day Spa is located at 10 minutes walk from the historical center of Paraty, with a beautiful view on the mountains and the Jabaquara bay.
