The Inner Circle Interview Series

Sarah Morrissey 

Founder & CEO, Cocoon Mode De Vie

In our Inner Circle interview series, we speak to The Circle Business members, to find out what inspires them, how their brands are differentiated and what we can expect to see in the not-too-distant future.

As our thoughts are turning towards shorter nights and warmer days, we thought it would be fitting to commence our series learning from Sarah Morrissey, Founder & CEO of Cocoon Mode De Vie – an exceptional global luxury lifestyle, travel and wellness service.

Q: What inspired your transition from finance to wellness? 

My passion for fitness clashed with the demands of my finance job, leading to a pivotal moment when a car accident highlighted the toll of my relentless schedule. Despite the accident not being my fault, it made me realise that prioritising essential personal commitments shouldn’t be a luxury. This life-altering event prompted me to reassess my career path, ultimately steering me towards the world of wellness where I could align my values with my profession.

Q: What’s the concept behind CMDV?  

Cocoon Mode De Vie (CMDV) is built on the belief that living a stress-free, healthy, and mentally robust life is the cornerstone of happiness and success. 

Our platform offers a holistic approach to lifestyle management, seamlessly integrating nutrition, movement, and therapy into a personalised experience. 

Unlike traditional approaches that focus on these elements individually, CMDV bridges the gap by providing a comprehensive solution tailored to each member’s unique needs.


Q: What benefits do CMDV members receive? 

CMDV members enjoy a multitude of benefits designed to enhance their well-being and elevate their lifestyle.

From personalised programs and therapy sessions to access to top-tier fitness facilities and exclusive retreats, our members are empowered to prioritise their health and happiness. 

Additionally, they receive preferential bookings, upgrades, and exclusive offers from our esteemed brand partners, ensuring a truly luxurious experience.

Q: Can you share a memorable achievement? 

One of my proudest moments on this journey has been witnessing the evolution of CMDV from concept to reality. Seeing the positive reception from leading hospitality brands and practitioners who share our vision has been incredibly gratifying. Collaborations with esteemed partners like Soneva have reaffirmed our commitment to excellence and innovation in the wellness industry.


Q: Where do you see CMDV in 5 years? 

In the next five years, I envision CMDV transforming into a pioneering tech wellness platform, leveraging advancements in AI to enhance the member experience. Additionally, we are exploring the integration of NFTs into our private members club, with a focus on longevity and sustainability. By staying at the forefront of innovation and continuing to prioritise our members’ well-being, CMDV aims to redefine luxury lifestyle management in the digital age.
