COMO SHAMBHALA: A WAY OF LIVING NOW

COMO Shambhala is a healthy living philosophy inspired by the mythological kingdom of ‘Shambhala’, which in ancient Buddhist texts denotes a sacred place of bliss. The belief is that everyone can find tranquility within themselves by exploring body, mind and spirit. COMO Shambhala continually asks what the synergy between these different modes really means in order to refine a holistic approach balancing the head, heart and physical being through the intelligent combination of modern science and hands-on healing. Carefully attuned wellness experiences therefore derive knowledge from both East and West, with the nurturing inspirations of world-class experts helping direct individuals towards better health.

THE COMO SHAMBHALA DIFFERENCE: THE PASSION OF EXPERTS

Christina Ong, owner of COMO Hotels and Resorts, designed COMO Shambhala out of her personal pursuit for a meaningful spa experience — something she felt must be possible in the right environment while counselled by the very best teachers. Every therapist or expert therefore has to meet the founder’s exacting standards, from massage therapists to doctors and counsellors.

These are special people: intuitive, empowering, driven by a deeply held belief in the healing of an individual’s potential. They share the same desire for results: the long-lasting value of a better balanced body, mind and spirit.

In addition, COMO Shambhala’s expert advisory panel — including yoga teacher Rodney Yee, fashion designer Donna Karan, and Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman — ensures the company remains at the forefront of holistic wellness practices and ideas.

Yoga, however, is the activity that rests at COMO Shambhala’s heart. Whether an absolute beginner or an experienced practitioner of a specific style, COMO Shambhala provides nurturing tuition. Specialist tuition in Pilates is also offered to improve core strength and flexibility.

COMO SHAMBHALA ESTATE: A FLAGSHIP WELLNESS RETREAT

COMO Shambhala Estate, located near Ubud, Bali, is where the company’s holistic, 360-degree approach was born. Every aspect of the Estate answers to a greater purpose — the design, facilities, staff, treatments, cuisine, accommodation and community all working in measured balance to make real and lasting improvements to the way guests live their lives.

The Estate is where many of COMO Shambhala’s experts are based, including a naturopath and an Ayurvedic doctor. The very private accommodation includes villas and suites, some of which feature their own ensuite therapy rooms. Outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and climbing make the most of the Estate’s inspiring location on a jungle-covered riverbank.

COMO Shambhala now offers a taste of the Estate’s wellness concept and ethos in an urban setting, here in Singapore.
