Samantha’s Snapshot Review of Uma by COMO

Review of Uma by COMO


A modern twist on the traditional Balinese hotels, COMO Uma Ubud is a tranquil haven on the edge of the bustling village, just an hour away from Denpasar International airport and 5 minutes from the city centre you will find the 46 contemporary rooms, suites and villas, poised on the side of the lush green Tjampuhan Valley, the Uma Pool Villas offer mesmerising views to the river below. All rooms are elegantly decorated and infused with the signature scent of eucalyptus and peppermint complemented by the softness of lavender and geranium. It’s perfect for a solo spa retreat or an indulgent healthy honeymoon.

The two on-site restaurants, Kemiri and Uma Cucina, offer a variety of dining options from contemporary Indonesian cuisine to hearty Italian and you can enjoy the signature healthy Shambhala menu throughout the resort. Room service is available and a complimentary transfer to Ubud make this the ideal base for a day of exploring or your Bali Discover Recover holiday.

The COMO Shambhala Retreat focuses on holistic wellness, with active pursuits including temple visits, biking and trekking. There is small fitness room and yoga pavilion where you can enjoy daily complimentary yoga with mesmerising views. You’ll be spoilt for choice no matter what you’d like to do from luxury spa treatments, yoga or mountain bike riding, Balinese cooking classes or white water rafting, the team will happily arrange for you.

I would recommend this property to busy travellers looking for a luxury lifestyle retreat with more flexibility to dine, relax and explore as well as the option to indulge at the open air bar with a freshly made martini or relax poolside after a full day of activities, exploration and world-class spa treatments.
