Spa therapists, teachers, and activities guides are all dedicated to giving guests at COMO Shambhala Estate a full immersion in a healthful experience. The staff includes a resident nutritionist, a naturopath, an Ayurvedic doctor, and a physiotherapist, as well as fitness, yoga, and Pilates instructors. The selection of personal programs includes detoxification, stress management, weight management, therapeutic nutrition, "be active," and skin revitalization packages. Yoga and Pilates retreats will be held throughout the year.
The extensive, recently built spa facilities include nine treatment rooms, three of which are for couples, an outdoor hydrotherapy area, swimming pool, yoga room, Pilates studio, separate male/female steam and sauna, fully-equipped gym with dramatic views, and consultation rooms. The Kedara (a water garden whose name translates to "meadow of water") that occupies a secluded area above the river consists of four pavilions, each with expansive rest areas and outdoor baths and showers. The Vitality Pool is 603 square feet. The spa, like the entire resort, is supplied with water from The Source, a natural spring revered by locals for its healing properties.
The spa's architectural plan, overseen by Cheong Yew Kuan (who conceived the original COMO Shambhala Estate), incorporates local stone, wood, and traditional alang-alang roofing. In the interiors, the uncomplicated, succint approach of designer Koichiro Ikebuchi is evident.
COMO Shambhala Massage, the spa's signature treatment, is gentle and soothing, with comforting massage strokes and wave-like body-rocking motions. Conducive to instilling a sense of peace, it is an ideal choice to relieve jet lag or normal daily stress.
