Ahead of the Pack: Shangri-La’s Chi Spa
posted by The Gypsetters Net in Indulgences
Though rainy season is upon us in the Philippines, there is always sunny news to be heard. Agoda.com just recently named Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa’s CHI SPA as a standout luxury spa in its annual list of world class hotel spas!
Everyone loves a good pampering now and then, especially while traveling. With Chi Spa’s rejuvenating whole body massage and hydrotherapy sessions, you will feel energized and ready to explore the rest of Boracay island.
In Chinese medicine, the word “chi” means a balance of ones’ energies and a day at the spa can rejuvenate one with lots of positive energy! Use one of your weekends to detoxify at Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa and you’ll come home like a new person.
Chi Spa is its own village with 10 villas overlooking a private bay, so you can have much needed “me time” without any disturbances. The only sounds you’ll hear are the water falling on smooth stones, the occasional bird chirp and the wind rustling the leaves on the canopy. There aren’t too many spas like this in the country (Agoda featured Dusit Thani’s Deverana Spa in 2014, and Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan in Cebu in 2013) and this makes Chi stand out. Another good reason to book a massage at the Chi Spa is that you’ll get the best in Philippine traditional health sessions using local products such as coconut oil, indigenous flora and more.
Other notable spas around the world on Agoda’s short list are Bali’s Komaneka at Tanggayuda, Paris’ Royal Monceau Raffles, India’s The Oberoi Amarvilas Agra Hotel, Munich’s Bayerischer Hof, New Zealand’s The Langham Auckland, Malaysia’s The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur and Chiang Mai’s Rarinjinda Wellness Spa Resort.
