About the neighbourhood
Villa Shamballa is very conveniently located in a small traditional village called Payogan, Ubud which means 'place to do yoga'. Although just 5 minutes drive from the centre of Ubud, one senses they are miles away in the middle of the jungle whilst remaining a stone's throw from all conveniences. A few minutes drive from the villa the Sangingan area offers a variety of culinary and shopping experiences.

Also, many art galleries, antique shops, spas and a yoga studio. Only 7 minutes by car to get to the Ubud centre and 5 minutes to the large super market and ATM. At the villa, we can arrange in house massage, private yoga, taichi a...
