Como Launches New Urban Escape in Perth, Western Australia

April, 2016

The cosmopolitan state capital gets a wellness boost from the renowned COMO Shambhala brand

COMO Hotels and Resorts is pleased to announce the opening of a new COMO Shambhala Urban Escape in Perth, Western Australia, solely dedicated to yoga, clinical Pilates and personal training. Named COMO Shambhala Urban Escape, State Buildings, it is located steps from St Georges Terrace.

The new development is found within the Kerry Hill-designed State Buildings — 19th century government buildings that have been re-invigorated as a vibrant hub of retail, dining, hotel and lifestyle offerings within the Cathedral Square precinct.

On offer are two types of yoga, Vinyasa and Yin, led by a team of experts. One-on-one clinical Pilates, as well as group sessions, are also available.

Classes can be complemented with hands-on massage and healing treatments at the wellness centre’s sister facility, COMO Shambhala Urban Escape, COMO The Treasury, which is located in the hotel. Post restaurant, also at COMO The Treasury, offers delicious COMO Shambhala Cuisine, with dishes designed to maximise energy and wellbeing.

Stephanie Johnson, manager of the new Urban Escape, is a Perth native who has been practicing yoga for over a decade. She said: “Our vision is to provide the ideal urban escape for Perth city dwellers. A sanctuary that allows people the capability to switch off and be nurtured.”

Anneke Brown, general manager of COMO The Treasury, added: “Our wellness offering is truly holistic, encompassing treatments, fitness, yoga and Pilates and of course our world-class COMO Shambhala Cuisine.”

Perth’s two COMO Shambhala Urban Escapes join COMO Shambhala’s global network of wellness facilities including Urban Escapes in London, Miami, Bangkok and Singapore, as well as Retreats in Bali, Thailand, the Maldives, Bhutan and the Turks and Caicos. COMO Shambhala’s flagship, COMO Shambhala Estate, is also located in Bali. COMO Shambhala experts employ an individualised approach to each client’s wellness journey, combining evidence-based modern science with traditional wellness modalities.
