Leading food delivery service foodpanda Singapore has announced the launch of a new wellness retreat called ‘The Pandanctuary’.
The Pandanctuary retreat aims to provide stressed out Singaporeans the chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city – by living like a panda for the weekend.
The retreat has been created by foodpanda following research in the UK that estimates over 10,000 people who enjoy dressing up as animals to escape from the pressures of modern living.
The food delivery company has subsequently identified the benefits of dressing up as a panda, an animal that is renowned for its leisurely behavior, as a way to help people reduce stress and increase feelings of wellbeing.
To launch the Pandanctuary retreat, foodpanda has teamed up with Studio M Hotel on Nanson Road to provide guests with the ultimate panda experience, by decking out bespoke ‘panda rooms’ with bamboo plants, play ropes and large water bowls.
For the in-room dining experience no detail has been spared, with foodpanda joining forces with world-renowned restaurant group Jamie’s Italian to curate special bamboo-inspired menu with dishes and drinks from Bamboo Shoot Risotto to a Bamboo Sling.
For guests booking the experience for a birthday or celebration, cakes can also be arranged with bamboo flavours and candles.
According to Aspa Lekka, Managing Director, foodpanda Singapore:, “With studies showing that dressing up like an animal is scientifically proven to reduce stress levels, we wanted to give our busy customers the opportunity to see what it’s like to live like our ‘chilled out’ mascot for the weekend – the beloved panda”.
The retreats will start from April, 1 onwards.
