Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta Introduces CHI, The Spa

CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta

Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta reintroduces its Health Club and Spa as Health Club and CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La.  CHI, The Spa is the signature spa brand of Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts worldwide.

CHI draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, a place of personal peace and well-being.  Unique treatments that define the new CHI in Jakarta include the Indonesian Treasures and Balinese Massage, inspired by the local blend of energy and traditional heritage.

In traditional Chinese philosophy, chi is the universal life force that governs well being and personal vitality.  It is believed that chi must flow freely within the body to maintain good health.  CHI presents a personal sanctuary where holistic treatments are based on time-honoured methods shared by many Asian cultures.  At CHI, guests will find tranquillity, sincerity and something a great deal rarer – the Shangri-La hospitality delivered from the heart.

A spectrum of massages, facials and treatments is available under different categories.  CHI Signature Massages are developed to provide complete relaxation of the mind and to revitalise the body.  Guests can choose from a Chinese foot massage with CHI Reflexology, a full body massage with CHI Balance, a muscle-tension-relieving massage with CHI Rescue Release or the thermotherapy benefits of CHI Hot Stones.

The Sense of Place treatments reflect a true sense of Indonesia by using local ingredients combined with massage techniques.  The Indonesian Treasures with energising ginger oil offers a combination of world-famous massages, complemented with steamed Indonesian herbal poultices to soothe the muscles.  The well-known Balinese Massage is based on ancient Balinese techniques using wing thumb and palm pressure to stimulate circulation and improve well-being.

The European-inspired full body Wellness Massage is a Swedish-style massage that uses a combination of long strokes, kneading and circular strokes to improve circulation.  The light pressure is suitable for total relaxation.

Body Therapies are treatments that nourish the skin and promote cell regeneration with powerful ingredients.  Royal Javanese Lulur uses natural body scrub made of turmeric blended with traditional spices and roots, followed by the application of fresh yogurt.  Meanwhile, Organic Detox uses soothing body scrub made from fine corn powder and kaolin clay mixed with fresh yogurt to detoxify and eliminate dead skin.

The Facial series is a collection of treatments focusing on inner light and nourishing the skin.  The Perfect Hydration is an ideal treatment for dry skin using moisturiser plus concentrate, followed by a rock crystal massage over a pure collagen sheet.  The Aroma Natural Relax is a restorative aromatic break with deep relaxing facial massage that calms and eases facial expression muscles.  Specifically designed for men, the Gentleman’s Facial improves skin texture and tone, and focused on areas of deep seated tension.

Guests who desire a more elaborate experience can choose a treatment from CHI Journeys.  CHI Retreat is a two-hour relaxation massage, while CHI Enchanted Journey is a three-hour head-to-toe treatment with a foot ritual, a balance massage and a customised facial to conclude the face and body indulgence.

CHI comprises eight treatment rooms, including two rooms for couples.  The spa also features a spa consultation lounge where guests will be served welcome tea during the pre-treatment consultation.  The new spa complements Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta’s extensive health and leisure facilities, such as the state-of-the-art gymnasium, outdoor lagoon-shaped swimming pool and floodlit outdoor tennis courts.
