“Wellness sits at the heart of my own lifestyle choices,” says the brand’s founder, Mrs Christina Ong. “Wellness is a way of life. I believe we all have to take ownership of our own wellbeing. Wellness needs to start from within.”

Founded in 1997 as an intimate yoga studio in Singapore, COMO Shambhala has organically burgeoned into 17 spas spanning nine countries and four continents. This newest venture signifies a zenith in its evolution—a serene, contemporary space envisioned by Milan-based designer and architect, Paola Navone of OTTO Studio. Navone’s design echoes the fluidity and hues of healing waters, a homage to the essence of rejuvenation.

Within these hallowed halls, members can immerse themselves in a comprehensive weekly schedule offering meditation, pranayama, Gyrotonic, pilates, and high-intensity interval training. Individualised attention is paramount, with private sessions available across these disciplines. Here, HIIT classes are conducted in a state-of-the-art functional fitness centre spanning 1,500 square feet, bathed in natural light and adorned with cutting-edge Eleiko weightlifting equipment and a compact fitness circuit. Pilates and yoga classes are held in their respective studios furnished with contemporary gears.

Wellness extends beyond the fitness studio. An oasis for recovery and preparation awaits, featuring a red-light therapy and recovery room housing infrared saunas and invigorating ice baths.

Innovation takes form in medical-grade AirPod wellness capsules, elevating healing through a unique blend of oxygen and molecular hydrogen, enhancing blood flow, reducing inflammation, and fortifying the body’s resilience against free radicals. In turn, it helps to improve sleep quality, heighten alertness and mental acuity, and help stress management.
