COMO Hotels and Resorts
Each of the COMO Hotels and Resorts properties is a personal expression of its founder, fashion icon Christina Ong, and the specific brand of organic, effortless chic that she nails every time. The eight properties are in enviable destinations. Parrot Cay is its own private island in Turks & Caicos, as is Cocoa Island in the Maldives. The Halkin, one of the first-ever design-led boutique hotels, is tucked into a discreet street in London’s tony Belgravia neighborhood. The Metropolitan London overlooks Hyde Park from its Mayfair location, and the Metropolitan Bangkok is the chic Asian counterpart to its hip sister hotel in London. COMO Shambhala Estate is a true retreat hidden away in the Balinese jungle, while Uma Ubud lies in Bali’s cultural center of Ubud. In Bhutan, Uma Paro is set on a hilltop in the Himalayas. Part of COMO’s special gift for hospitality lies in allowing each location to speak for itself, while featuring a strikingly minimalist design, accented by wholly authentic details.
The cleansing and healing power of COMO is as much a draw for travelers in the know as the cool-factor that permeates each resort. Whether in a city or a far-off land, COMO focuses on providing a private oasis. Each property is deeply infused with the essence of COMO Shambhala – the brand’s spa concept is the last word in total relaxation and revitalization of mind, body, and soul.
In the COMO universe, yoga and Pilates classes are complimentary, breakfasts are healthful spreads of just-pressed juices, Bircher muesli, and fresh eggs, and beds are pure white heaven. One night can inspire cultish devotion. After a few days, devotees begin to crave the scent of the brand’s Invigorate line of bath and body products that are scented with essential oils of eucalyptus and peppermint – a combination that enhances mental clarity and physical energy.
