GRAZIA Address Book: Como Shambhala Singapore

An oasis of calm and relaxation in the heart of Orchard Road

If you thought the bustling heart of Orchard Road could not possibly be home to an oasis of calm and relaxation, think again. The newly opened Como Shambhala Singapore is just that: a one‑stop wellness destination spanning 9,000 square feet on the fourth floor of Como Orchard that promises to soothe your stress as well as strengthen the body and mind.

Designed by Milan‑based architect Paola Navone, who also masterminded the sophisticated interiors of the Como Group’s Point Yamu property, Como Shambhala Singapore boasts one of the widest wellness offerings on the island, ranging from Pilates to physiotherapy, traditional massages and cutting‑edge, science‑backed treatments. Fun fact: it is the only one of its kind in Singapore that offers medical‑grade hyperbaric oxygen chambers in a wellness setting—we’re told that regular sessions in these can alleviate fatigue, help one to overcome jet lag and even enhance the body’s natural healing process.

Of course, Como Shambhala’s signature massages and facials are also available here. The Como Shambhala Massage remains a hot favourite among stalwart clients, alongside others such as the prenatal massage and the classic Thai massage. For those looking to pamper their skin, we recommend the Como Shambhala Microbiome Facial, which incorporates prebiotics and postbiotics to help restore your skin’s health as well as lend it that glass skin glow.

GRAZIA Tip: Give the Contrast Therapy a go if you dare. Employing a combination of heat and cold therapies, it calls for you to alternate between spending time in a personal infrared sauna and a dip in an ice‑cold bath with the water temperature kept between 0°C and 10°C—definitely not for the faint‑hearted. The push to putting yourself through this? The treatment has been designed with various health benefits in mind, including promoting muscle recovery, fat and inflammation reduction, and collagen production. Blowing hot and cold has never sounded better.
