CHI, The Spa, at Shangri-La draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, which describes a place of personal peace, enchantment and well-being. Guests can have a private consultation with nutritionists and ayurvedic doctors that will develop a personalized wellness programme just for them.
Located in a secluded area of the resort, CHI, The Spa offers twelve treatment rooms decorated in Shangri-La’s signature CHI style that are complimented by local design elements.
The spa menu includes Chinese and Ayurvedic treatments, a specialty of Sri Lanka, and our therapists use 100% natural spa products.
In traditional Chinese philosophy, "ch'i ", or "qi", is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. For good health to be maintained, it is believed that ch’i must flow freely within the body. On the other hand, when ch'i is blocked, disease and illness follow.
Movement is therefore a key element of our signature therapies. Forming the basis of the CHI, The Spa philosophy, body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and moving the mind through relaxation practices and meditation combine to assist the body’s natural renewal process.
