COMO Hotels and Resorts Launches COMO Journeys

Luxury lifestyle brand COMO Hotels and Resorts is introducing COMO Journeys, a collection of one-off getaways, enabling guests to pick up a new skill or further expand their existing knowledge base under the watchful eye of leading experts and professionals. 

COMO Journeys comprises active, adventure, creative and culinary experiences, aiming to bring together like-minded individuals. Seamless logistics ensure the focus is on discovery, connection and personal growth. In collaboration with COMO Shambhala, COMO Journeys additionally features deep-focused Wellness Journeys with access to top yoga, qigong and Pilates instructors.

As part of the initial launch, COMO Hotels debuted three unique COMO Journeys throughout the summer in Maldives, Thailand and Australia, with more escapes to be announced throughout the year.
