Como Shambhala to reveal new global flagship in Singapore at Como Orchard

A new urban retreat, Como Shambhala Singapore, will open this December in the city's upcoming multi-floor lifestyle destination called Como Orchard
The 9,000sq ft wellness hub will offer a range of spa, fitness, recovery and mindful movement experiences
Milan-based designer and architect, Paola Navone of OTTO Studio, designed the space to reflect the flow and palette of healing water
Spa partners will include PSskincare by Dr Priya Sen and Sage and Ylang

International luxury wellness brand Como Shambhala will unveil its largest-ever urban flagship in Singapore on 20 December 2023.

The new space occupies 9,000sq ft on the fourth floor of Como Orchard, the new multi-floor lifestyle destination – which includes wellness, fashion, food and drink, and hospitality – created by the Como Group* in the company’s home city of Singapore.

“Wellness sits at the heart of my own lifestyle choices,” says brand founder and owner Christina Ong.

“Wellness is a way of life and I believe we all have to take ownership of our own wellbeing. Wellness needs to start from within.”

Introducing Como Shambhala Singapore

Founded in 1997, Como Shambhala started as an intimate yoga studio in Singapore. It has since developed into a signature Asian-inspired wellbeing retreat concept with a portfolio of 17 branded spas located in urban and remote destinations across nine countries and four continents.

The brand describes its latest urban outpost as a calm, contemporary space designed by Milan-based designer and architect, Paola Navone of OTTO Studio, to reflect the flow and palette of healing water.

Signature Como Shambhala spa treatments and wellness programmes will be available seven-days-a-week, including massages using the brand’s aromatherapy-based body oils (Invigorate, Shelter, Calm, New Skin, Purify, Harmony and Comfort).

Spa partners will include PSskincare by Dr Priya Sen, the Singapore-based dermatologist whose research-backed pro-ageing product line targets skin pigmentation, as well as Sage and Ylang – one of Asia’s first certified microbiome-friendly skincare lines – which will make its debut on the treatment menu.

Guests will have access to the weekly class schedule, which includes sessions in meditation, pranayama and HIIT.

In addition, private one-on-one teaching will be available in all these disciplines, as well as fitness, strength, body conditioning and mobility.

Como Shambhala’s commitment to holistic wellness will also be supported by healthy cuisine available from the Como Shambhala Kitchen menus at Como Cuisine on the building’s second floor.

Mindful movement meets recoveryTo cater to the global boom in demand for fitness, the location will be home to a light-filled 1,500sq ft gym fitted with modern equipment, weightlifting equipment by Eleiko, as well as a mini fitness circuit.

Como Shambhala Singapore is also partnered with the Strength Clinic Academy for physiotherapy services to assist with injury prevention and pain management, rehab and sport readiness.

There will also be a red-light therapy warm-up and recovery room for pre- and post-training sessions.

Meanwhile, two contrast therapy rooms will offer heat therapy: each will have an infrared sauna and a cold therapy ice bath.

To round out the offering, Como will introduce two medical-grade AirPod wellness devices for mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy to support the body’s natural healing process.
