Singapore’s first CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La officially opened at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore in December 2012. Nestled amidst 15 acres of lush tropical greenery, CHI draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, a place of personal peace and well-being. Unique treatments that define Singapore’s CHI include the Singapore Wave and Tropical Retreat, inspired by the local blend of energy and multicultural 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.
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. You can choose from a Chinese foot massage in CHI Reflexology, a full body massage in CHI Balance, a muscle-tension relieving massage in CHI Rescue Release or the thermotherapy benefits of CHI Hot Stones.
The unique Sense of Place treatments reflect a true sense of Singapore, using local ingredients combined with massage techniques that can be performed indoors or outdoors amongst the hotel’s lush gardens. The Singapore Wave is inspired by the multicultural influences of the garden city and combines traditional Asian massage and therapeutic massage techniques for an uplifting Singaporean experience.
The Wellness Massage offers popular massage techniques from different regions. If you prefer deep tissue massage you can enjoy the traditional Chinese Tui Na or the Thai Therapy. For medium and lighter pressure, you can also choose between Balinese or Swedish massage.
Body Therapies are treatments that nourish the skin and promote cell regeneration with powerful ingredients. The Bio Mud Wrap activates the dormant cells to aid in circulation. The Marine Flora Wrap uses sea marine ingredients to detoxify the body from impurities. You can also choose a customised body exfoliation with hand‑picked ingredients to fulfil skin concerns with the Customised Body Polish.
The Facial series is a collection of treatments focusing on inner light and nourishing the skin. You will feel pampered in the Rainforest Rejuvenation with Ila Facial using natural elements of the rainforest for regeneration of skin cells. The Customised Facial treatment addresses areas of concern from anti-aging, acne or detox. Specifically designed for men, the Gentleman’s Facial will improve skin texture and tone as well as focus on areas of deep-seated tension.
If you desire a more elaborated experience, you can choose a treatment from CHI Journeys. The CHI Retreat is a two-hour CHI body scrub and relaxation massage, while the CHI Enchanted Journey offers 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, The Spa comprises nine treatment rooms, including three rooms for couples. Both female and male locker rooms feature individual shower rooms; some of the shower rooms can be converted into steam rooms. The spa also features a reception lounge as well as a relaxation lounge, where guests will be served welcome tea during the pre-treatment consultation.
