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. CHI, The Spa is a sanctuary where holistic treatments that are based on time-honoured methods shared
by many Asian cultures are practiced.
CHI, The Spa made its North American debut at Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver, in 2009. It offers a "spa within a spa" environment. Each suite comes with its own fireplace, private bath, shower, relaxation lounge, changing room and vanity area.
Chinese philosophy, “chi” or “qi” is the universal life force that governs
well-being and personal vitality. For people to maintain good health, it is
believed that “chi” must flow freely within the body.
Movement is a key element in releasing energy blockages. Body massages, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy and mental relaxation and meditation practices are combined to assist the body's natural renewal and form the basis of CHI, The Spa's philosophy.
