Struggling to nod off at night? You might want to book yourself into a new London luxury wellness retreat where the bedrooms are designed to mimic the safety and snugness of the womb.
is a collaboration between (whose smart mattresses are simply dreamy) and design-led serviced-apartments .
Both know just how important quality sleep is to our wellbeing, that's why they teamed up to create a collection of innovative apartments that provide the optimum environment for shut eye. And the womb-shaped bed is just the start, because we all enjoyed the most REM-rich sleep in the final two weeks before our birth.
Experts spent nine months meticulously developing the state-of-the-art apartments which feature a ‘Woom’ bedroom, with a cocoon-like bed, inspired by the safety and snugness of the womb.
With muted lighting, soft pink walls and high-tech , each ‘Woom’ bedroom within The Zed Rooms has been designed to encourage positivity, relaxation and REM-rich sleep – the type of slumber which promotes learning and creates dreams.
There's also 'an entire ecosystem that helps you to sleep from the moment you step through the door'. That means furniture with soft edges, rocking chairs to help you nod off, restorative scents and colours, serotonin and melatonin rich foods, and a built-in meditation app.
Psychologist Hope Bastine, Simba's resident sleep expert, says many of us struggle to sleep well in hotel rooms.
'If you’ve ever noticed that you don’t sleep as well in a hotel, you’re not alone,' she says.
'Scientists recognised the "first night effect" over a decade ago, where one half of the brain unconsciously acts as a "night watchman" staying more alert when in unfamiliar surroundings,' she explains.
'With this in mind, tapping into the emotional and physical, no stone has been left unturned trying to soothe the effects of this in the design architecture of our new cutting-edge sleep retreat.'
