Luxe new meditation concept ‘The Cocoon Room Melbourne’ Launches
25 March 2021
A luxurious new meditation and corporate wellbeing space, The Cocoon Room Melbourne has just launched in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.
As employees make a staggered return to the office, this new world-first well-being space is ready to ease the corporate community’s transition back to office life.
‘A day-spa for the mind’, The Cocoon Room Melbourne provides a private space to retreat from the city’s chaos and emerge calmer, re-energised and refocused.
While 1 in 6 Australians practice meditation, many struggle with the motivation to practice consistently, as was the case for founder and entrepreneur Linda Belli (aka Belli). Belli’s barriers to regular meditation practice were numerous: interruptions (kids, partners, pets), finding app content that resonated, a facilitator that didn’t alienate and lack of routine.
“With so much discussion around the importance and benefits of practising meditation, it was surprising to learn that the offerings were limited” says founder Linda Belli.
“We’ve created a dedicated tranquil space with great session times to help city workers incorporate meditation and downtime into their busy routines. We’re more ‘chill’ than ‘chore’ - come as you are, no Lycra required!” she says.
Blending 5-star hotel luxury with a wellness retreat, The Cocoon Room Melbourne seeks to nurture individuals within an elegant, relaxing and private space where every furnishing and detail has been thoughtfully considered. Plush décor with a soothing pink and navy palette, a custom signature scent, mini-fountains, the perfect tea and teacup, and custom-designed velour chaises encased in a soft sheer curtained space, have brought this vision to life.
Upon arrival, Guests place their mobile and devices to bed in their locker before entering The Luxe Lounge. Reminiscent of a 5-star hotel foyer with glittering chandeliers, velour sofas and brass detailing, a beverages station, bookshelves laden with reading materials and mindfulness activities – the space is a haven to spend some time decompressing before the meditation. Guests are then invited into The Cocoon Room to settle into their own sheer-curtained ‘cocoon’, kitted out with heavenly velour recliner and headset programmed with three meditation options ensuring a personalised and private experience.
“We’ve crafted a spa-like experience without the price tag,” says Belli.
“The element of privacy with individual ‘cocoons’ and the simple meditation content is essential to encourage even the most reluctant meditators, so they too can enjoy the benefits of this ancient practise.”
Sessions run every hour and each 50-minute session is spent divided equally between the two spaces. Each session is less than a day-spa treatment or massage at just $38 per casual visit, reduced further with membership.
