Health enthusiasts may also choose to ease into wholeness at the Water Garden Pavilion. The exclusive villa features an infinity edge vitality pool, body scrub salas, a water shiatsu pool and a tea pavilion with organic fare and refreshing drinks.

Travelers and vacationers seeking to rejuvenate their senses will find sanctuary at CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu.

Tucked in 13 hectares of lush tropical gardens, CHI sprawls across 10,000 square meters of wellness in deluxe villas, tranquil terraces, private pools and refreshing baths.

Originally practiced by the Chinese, the universal life force or chi is believed to govern one’s well-being and vitality. To ensure good health, one’s chi must flow freely within the body.

CHI draws inspiration from ancient healing traditions, philosophies and rituals. The spa village’s extensive treatment menu highlights indigenous ingredients, such as virgin coconut oil, barako coffee, sampaguita flowers, pito-pito herbs, banana leaves, mango, papaya and Philippine lime.

Signature therapies include the award-winning Hilot, a healing massage based on time‑honored Filipino folk medicine, the Herbal Harmony Massage, the Mountain Tsampa Rub and Watsu (CHI Water Shiatsu).

Step into CHI for blissful journeys enriched with holistic elements. Private pavilions offer the luxury of personal space and timelessness, while water flowing through from a large sculptural brick serves as a soothing welcome.
A tasteful boutique with hues of gold and tangerine, and a magnificent glass leaf sculpture streaming down from the sunlit ceiling grace the wood-embellished lounge of the Sanctum, CHI’s reception area.

CHI was voted as Asia’s Best Spa in the 2010 Asiamoney Travel Poll and has garnered recognition from such publication greats Time magazine, Travel Weekly and Zagat.
