Lovely location but such a low service for the money you paid for. In fact we are not looking for service, but only kindness, anyway the luck of understanding who runs the Shambala is showing us it is a very materialist place which does not suit the ambience of Kabak .

We visited Kabak on the recommendation of a friend who had visited earlier this year. We were looking for a relaxing week long break, Kabak and The Shambala was certainly that. We were collected from the airport on the first night and driven to the resort, we arrived too late for the evening meal but the manager gave us two... More

Such a fantastic view! We just wanted to switch off and relax. Silence...Only you can hear waves voice.. We really liked boutique hotel concept . Your expectations shouldn`t be like 4 /5 stars hotel.

We just left Shambala after a wonderful (unplanned) 2 weeks. We were only planning on staying 3 nights at Shambala as we were heading down the coast, but upon arriving to the breathtaking view, friendly staff and hearty food we changed plans to stay longer! The staff were very helpful in organizing boat trips and sharing the way to the... More

I stayed at the Shambala ‘resort’ from 26th July 2012 to 29th July 2012. I was going to stay until the 31st July 2012 but I cut my stay short because the Shambala was just plain revolting. I stayed in Cottage One, and the view was indeed magnificent, as long as you were looking outwards at the sea view and... More

I visited Sambala in May and would happily reccommed this hotel. The location of Sambala is amazing. Incredibly beautiful nature and sea view. People are very friendly and helpful and food are delicious. (lot of vegatarian options) Our cabin was decorated nicely and was clean and comfortable. This is one of the best place where I have been.

The Shambala has got an unique strenght: an amazing sea view. However this is due to the nature... not to the venue itself. We had been there for 3 nights during the summer 2012 and we will never repeat this experience anymore. We slept in a wood cabin with an amazing overview on the valley but it was really expensive!...

Walking down the Kabak valley towards the beach we stumbled, hot and thirsty, upon The Shambala. We were immediately hooked! The beer is ice cold, the setting tranquil and the view is second to none. It;s only a small hike down the valley to the beach, and the hike back up in the evenings is just tough enough to work... More

We had an amazing trip in Turkey but Shambala was a lowlight. The setting is glorious, but everything else about this hotel is miserable. In an otherwise very affordable country, the cost of Shambala is outrageous. It is teeming with dreadlocked 20something staff who are utterly uninterested in helping you. There is very loud, very bad music at the pool... More

To visit Shambala three times in a row speeks for itself! If you want to relax you find the best Spot in Shambala, especially in June, when its not that hot and calm.
