The Metropolitan London has just unveiled the new COMO Shambhala Urban Escape. Joining world-renown spas at Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos and COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali, the new location shares the company’s holistic approach. In the tradition of COMO Shambhala, it will offer key Asian-inspired therapies as well as a resident acupuncturist. Among the treatments on offer are the Dr. Perricone facials. The spa is also offering COMO Shambhala PURIFY facials, suitable for men and women. Body therapies include the signature COMO Shambhala Massage, a nurturing massage using COMO Shambhala’s own blended massage oil to calm the mind and rejuvenate the body. In response to the hotel’s male clientele, COMO Shambhala Urban Escape offers dedicated treatments for men including facials and massages. The Complete Man treatment includes a back cleanse followed by a mask application to the back teamed with a scalp massage. Tension is then released with a Deep Tissue Massage before concluding with an Express Men’s Facial and a hand scrub. In the future, COMO Shambhala Urban Escape will also welcome regular visits by expert therapists who have trained at the group’s other spas worldwide. They might include osteopaths, nutritionists and reflexologists. The spa is open to guests, locals, and visitors. The sleek, minimalist interior of the Metropolitan London is reflected in the design of the new spa Linzi Coppick of Forme UK created a clean-lined, peaceful sanctuary for those looking to escape the pressures of city life. There are six treatment rooms, two of which are doubles. The double treatment rooms feature steam rooms, and the new spa also incorporates expanded gym and yoga facilities.
