Como Shambhala


After the thirty-something hours and three flights it took to get to Bali, perfectly 12 hours ahead of New York (and my natural body clock), we needed a resort just like Como Shambhala. Tucked away at the end of a very local road is this explosion of natural wonder. On the edge of a jungle vista descending down to the rapid Ayung River (Ayung meaning beautiful) there are endless ways to pass the day, from hiking the 250 stone steps down to the stunning natural spring pools to yoga and spa treatments to wonderful afternoon naps on outdoor beds. The juice menu put all my favorite New York haunts to shame. Everything was amazingly fresh and organic, light and natural, mirroring the environment this special place was nestled in. My mind and body were healed being here and for once in a very long time I felt as though I could simply breathe

  • I was skeptical of Bali at first. I thought it would never live up to the hype. I was glad to be dead wrong! Bali is everything it promises and more.

    How can the food be that delicious AND healthy AND cheap? It’s a dream.

    I shot a million pictures there: Can’t wait to see the photo shoot you turned out!

    Classic style set to an indie soundtrack

  • Oh, these photos are such a dream! I’d love to visit Bali (and Thailand!) someday soon, and your photos have me daydreaming of a scenic escape!

    Jamie, I got so much respect and admiration for all that you do. Not only do your photos make me want to get my camera and go outside and shoot every time… But the way you write and your story telling is just so engaging. Having your newsletter being sent to me everyday is a big highlight of my every day.

    How funny. I worked on the brand + collateral designs for all the COMO Hotels & Resorts. And I have IG’d the exterior of your studio before. What a coincidence since we are neighbors in FiDi. Glad you enjoyed, and next time, go to Parrot Cay — 3hr direct flt from NYC.
