Spa Services

The Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok's CHI, The Spa is modelled on a Tibetan temple and draws inspiration from the origins of Shangri-La legend.

At 10,700 square feet (994 square meters) and with 12 treatment rooms, it is one of the largest spa facilities in Bangkok. The spa has views of the river, and houses 4 "couples suites," 2 single suites, 3 suites with private facilities, a spa pool, an outdoor spa tub, and a boutique. Some 30 treatments include Himalayan bath therapy, milk-honey wraps, deep tissue massages, hot stone massages, and mud baths. A variety of Asian and Thai options using pressure points, Thai sen or meridian lines, salts, clay, oils and herbs are also available.

In traditional Chinese philosophy, ch'i is the life force that governs well-being and vitality. It is believed that ch'i must flow freely; if blocked, illness and disease will follow.
