A late afternoon fire on Friday, March 5, 2010 at the Como Shambhala's Uma Ubud in Ubud, Bali resulted in significant damage to the Resort's spa facility.
Three units of the Gianyar fire department assisted by the Resort's fire brigade responded to the blaze. According to the Bali Post, the fire consumed the spa building which stands apart from the rest of the hotel. Firefighters reportedly encountered difficulty in accessing the spa which is tucked away in a corner of the Resort property, managing in the end to access the burning building via the grounds of the adjacent Neka Museum complex.
The fire, which lasted for about one hour, destroyed the two-storey 10 x 8 meter spa.
Local police and fire officials continue to investigate the cause of the fire.
No injuries were reported.
According to the Resort's management, hotel operations continue uninterrupted with damage limited to the spa. The Resort's spa services will be housed temporarily in another part of the popular resort while repairs are undertaken.
