COMO Shambhala, a private estate located amidst the serenity of Bali’s stunning landscape near Ubud, is a sustainable and holistic retreat that takes rest and relaxation to a whole new meaning. Each of the five luxurious residenses are dramatically inset into the Balinese jungle, in jade green clearings and above the River Ayung. Honestly, I have a feeling a stay at Como is an absolute must for my wellbeing. How about you?

Kolmanskop, a town in the Namib desert in southern Namibia, was once a rich diamond mining village. Within a 40 year span the town lived, flourished and then died. Richer diamond deposits were discovered further south, operations were moved, nature took its course and the desert sands reclaimed their space. Thank you, Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés, for capturing these hauntingly beautiful images!
