New to Daios Cove for 2022 is the anticipated opening of KEPOS by Goco Hospitality. KEPOS embarks on a whole new wellness world which blurs the lines between a clinic, a studio and a spa, the first-of-its-kind in the hotel space. Even the most seasoned health enthusiasts will be in utter awe of the space Goco has curated with KEPOS, state-of-the-art facilities and technology will take your experience to new heights.

It’s a prime example of a full 360-degree well-being experience that looks at health from every dimension with experts from each corner of the industry on hand to help.

If you’re in need of a health MOT, KEPOS facilities diagnostics run by Pnoē. Taking an integrative approach to health optimisation, a series of synergistic programs are designed to analyse various areas of your health.

Following all diagnostics, KEPOS in-house doctors and wellness specialists will analyse the results alongside you to give a better understanding of how to optimise your health going forward, you’ll also receive email copies of your results from Pnoē which are explained easily.
