CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La, draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, a place of personal peace, enchantment and well-being.
The jewel for relaxation of Shangri-La's Boracay Resort and Spa is the 5,714 sqm CHI, The Spa. Located on a rocky peninsula looking out over a private bay, the detached spa village complex is designed to be a sanctuary within the resort.
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 and, when blocked, "dis-ease" and illness follow. Movement is therefore a key element in releasing blockages.
Body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and movement of the mind through relaxation and meditation combine to assist the body's natural renewal and form the basis of the CHI spa philosophy.
