Como Shambala Estate at Begawan Giri, Ubud, Bali $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
The Como group spared no expense on its flagship property, nestled amid jungle greenery outside Ubud—and the results are spectacular. Ten buildings are split into 21 expansive suites, each with a sky-high cane-thatch roof, gleaming wood floor, carved teak furniture, Victorian bath, and canopied bed. Each building has a spacious common dining and lounging area, and a terrace with chaises and an infinity pool overlooking the Ayung River valley below. (For maximum fabulousness, book the Royal Suite—more than 3,000 square feet filled with stunning antiques and artworks, and a multitiered pool with views over Mount Batu Kara.) The ten stand-alone villas are similarly outfitted and rented in their entirety. Spa treatments are a big part of the experience here; there are nine treatment rooms and four pavilions where guests are massaged, wrapped, soaked, steamed, and purified. Nutritionists and mind–body practitioners tailor specific exercise, healing, and diet regimens (there are two health-conscious restaurants). Perhaps the only downside to this place is its remoteness; it's a half-hour drive from Ubud, and once you arrive, you'll be pretty much confined to the property.
