The 281-room hotel is located in the prime area of Chang Klan Road, a few steps from the famous night bazaar. It is situated within nearly seven acres of green lawns, frangipani, bamboo, ginger and lotus ponds. The decoration is influenced by the city’s 700-year history and Northern Thailand “Lanna” cultural heritage, with a generous use of teak and open, light-filled spaces filled with local artefacts and rich fabrics in regal colours.
CHI, The Spa debuts at Shangri-La Hotel, Chiang Mai and is the 12th CHI to open within the Shangri-La group. Nestled within 4,600 square metres of landscaped, tropical gardens yet conveniently located in the city, CHI, The Spa offers nine spacious, Thai-inspired villas all incorporating the signature CHI “spa within a spa” concept.
The main features of the spa include a pool-facing yoga pavilion and a commanding structure called “The Sanctum,” where guests begin their spa experience by discovering their Chinese five-element type. All CHI therapies are based on the Asian philosophy of the traditional five elements, in which metal, water, wood, fire and earth should be in balance with the positive yang and negative yin energy to restore balance and re-energize the mind and the body. The CHI concept was developed in collaboration with a team of recognized experts in traditional Chinese medicine and Asian therapies.
In addition to the CHI signature treatments CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La Hotel, Chiang Mai will also offer unique therapies, exclusive to this location incorporating local healing practices and ingredients, giving guests experiences distinct to Thailand’s north. Known as the “Rose of the North” for its setting amid rice fields and jungles, Chiang Mai is the centre of the Northern Thai people known as Lanna.
