For a weekend getaway, a spa day at Chi, The Spa is a luxurious pampering that leaves you so relaxed that you can’t drive home. So stay the night at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Batu Ferringhi and relax into a deep sleep.

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, “disease” 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.

INDIVIDUAL SPA VILLAS

My spacious villa at the Chi Spa is named “Timu” and my therapist is the lovely Lynda.

Each of the spacious villas is equipped with a private changing room, a treatment room, and a private garden, all surrounded by 30 acres of lush gardens. “Timu” has an outdoor rain shower and a huge circular tub!

A sight to behold. The changing room complete with WC and shower is to the right and treatment room on the left.

FOOT SCRUB

I quickly changed and slip on a luxuriously thick and heavy bathrobe and padded into the treatment room for my foot scrub and massage.

A nice hot cup of ginger tea to expel wind. Scrub ready on the footstool for my foot spa. Lynda explained that the bathwater is enriched with a truffle bath cake with essential lavender oil ready for my soak after the foot spa massage.

The soak in the bath was invigorating. The water felt soft, warm and relaxing.

MASSAGE

The next treatment was a luxurious massage. Needless to say, I happily dozed off as my therapist uses long, smooth strokes and kneading to relax the muscles of my limbs, back and neck, feeling for muscle knots to release restrictions in the tissue.

A warmth goes through my body as the circulation is restored with good chi flow.

GLOWING FACIAL

My facial with Kerstin Florian product was a wonderful testament to finding a product that works for sensitive skin. I enjoyed the cleansing, mask, and massage by my therapist who has cool hands that work wonders. Her facial massage is just wonderful and comforting.

After my facial, I was glowing. I couldn’t miss a chance for a selfie with my therapist Lynda!

It is easy to know that the aptest moniker to perfectly describe Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa would be ‘Paradise on earth’.
