Begwan Giri was developed as a group of 'private' residences each with their own distinct architectural characteristics and unique furnishings. This individuality means the estate offers a personal and private atmosphere but with the facilities and services of a deluxe resort. Each 'residence' consists of four/five bedroom suites, pool, living and dining pavilion. Whether you choose one of the 22 distinctive suites or even an entire 'residence', you are assured of absolute luxury, impeccably discreet service and fabulous food, much of which is grown on the estate itself. You can dine in the suite, at the residence pavilion, in the gardens or in Biji, the estate's new restaurant where the chef creates New World cuisine with Indonesian accents, prepared simply and authentically, using the freshest ingredients drawn from the land.
The Como Shambala Retreat defines the hotel's unique appeal - a lavish spa dedicated to the complete relaxation of the body and mind where exotic treatments as Javanese Lulur and Balinese Spice are offered, baths are created from volcanic clays, sea salts and exotic plants, and massages are given in the privacy of your own suite of in the beautiful gardens. Yoga classes, fitness workouts and personal training are available.
A library, natural spring pool and lush tropical gardens all encourage blissful indolence, but this very elegant and stylish retreat is also an excellent base from which to explore the spectacular countryside around Ubud.
