Welcome to CHI Ayurveda Spa at Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa, Sri Lanka. Inspired by the mystical Shangri-La legend, the spa is a place of personal peace, enchantment and well-being.
CHI Ayurveda Spa at Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa, Sri Lanka, has partnered with the Siddhalepa Group, South East Asia’s most famous provider of Ayurveda healing centres. The owners, the Hettigoda family, offer traditional and authentic Ayurveda treatments using remedies and therapies handed down unchanged through generations of practitioners.
We are proud to be working exclusively with them, as they have developed award-winning Ayurveda programmes at some of the world’s most famous resorts and locations. Authentic Ayurveda treatments penetrate and cleanse the entire body and remove deeply embedded toxins while bringing balance to the whole body. Benefits include detoxification, destressing, weight control, deep relaxation and general well-being. A comprehensive treatment from a genuine Ayurveda spa such as ours, can literally add years to your life. The spa also offers traditional massages and body treatments.
Located in a secluded area of the resort, CHI, The Ayurveda Spa offers twelve treatment rooms decorated in Shangri-La’s signature CHI style that are complimented by local design elements. 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 Ayurveda 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.
