Thailand Yoga Spa – Shangri-La Hotel Chiang Mai ****

This Thailand yoga spa sets a new standard. Truth be told, most luxury hotels include spas as something of an afterthought; just one more service on a long list that includes gyms, pools, 24-hour room service and the like. Rarely does a spa actually take on a life of its own, or better yet, extend the philosophy of the hotel behind it. But that is exactly what the Shangri-La group has done with its acclaimed CHI, The Spa.

 

Taking a page from the hotel's own inspiration, namely the hidden Himalayan utopia of James Hilton's epic novel Lost Horizon, all of the CHI spas incorporate ancient Chinese and Himalayan practices into their full-service spa offerings, allowing modern-day travellers to enjoy the natural remedies and the time-tested massage techniques of another age. Adding to CHI's appeal is its unique 'spa within a spa' concept, which makes every treatment suite a private island by equipping each with a range of facilities such as soaking tubs with 'eternity light' colour therapy, herbal steam showers, relaxation lounges and en-suite bathrooms.

 

Four years after that first groundbreaking launch in Bangkok, Thailand would receive another CHl, The Spa outlet at the luxurious Shangri-La Hotel, Chiang Mai. A tranquil oasis within the busy centre of Chiang Mai (just five minutes away from the well-known Night Market), the new CH retains the original Himalayan influences in its design but pays tribute to the history of the area by including elements that originate from the Thai Lanna kingdom; this move has produced a distinctly different – but no less beautiful – aesthetic. The nine villas that comprise the spa compound are decorated with Thai silks and built with the finest local materials.

 

Fully embracing local traditions in pursuit of the best possible spa experience, this CHI outlet even offers a Thai massage and a Lanna Blend Massage not available anywhere else. Dubbed the King of Massages, the latter combines Thai techniques with Himalayan hot stone healing to stretch tired muscles.
