Maxx-M - - WHAT TO DO -

I of­ten go to Surabaya for busi­ness and plea­sure. But one thing I had al­ways dreaded was try­ing to find a good spa in the city. But those days are gone since I dis­cov­ered Chi Spa at Shangri-La Ho­tel, Surabaya. Con­sid­ered by many, in­clud­ing this writer, to be the best ho­tel spa in Surabaya, Chi Spa at Shangri-La is the place to re­ju­ve­nate the body, re­fresh the mind and re­store the senses. The first time I stepped into the spa, I was im­pressed. Cre­ated as an ex­clu­sive luxury retreat, the con­tem­po­rary de­sign is car­ried through to the re­cep­tion, con­sul­ta­tion area, re­lax­ation lounge and the four sin­gle treat­ment rooms and one cou­ple’s room. Fo­cused on over­all well-be­ing, Chi Spa is a lux­u­ri­ous, spa­cious and pro­fes­sion­ally equipped haven where you can re­lax and re­vi­tal­ize. Look­ing through the spa menu, I saw that the treat­ments in­cor­po­rate tra­di­tional In­done­sian heal­ing ther­a­pies and beauty rit­u­als, with in­dige­nous herbs and in­gre­di­ents passed down from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion. I de­cided to try one of the spa’s sig­na­ture treat­ments, Madu­ranese Har­mony. The treat­ment is said to re­store vi­tal­ity and en­ergy and to be a stress re­leaser for busi­ness trav­ellers. Be­ing in Surabaya for busi­ness and in need of an en­ergy boost, I was ea­ger to try the treat­ment. As I en­tered the treat­ment room, I was very im­pressed. Wood and gran­ite set the tone, while lo­cal arte­facts and mo­tifs cre­ate a warm, rich am­bi­ence. The treat­ment starts with a foot wash, dur­ing which my ther­a­pist ex­plains the treat­ment. A body scrub is next. Us­ing nat­u­ral plants and herbs, the scrub re­moves dead skin and washes away the dull­ness af­ter a long busi­ness trip. Then it is time to soak in a nat­u­ral min­eral bath and just re­lax with a glass of gin­ger tea. The treat­ment concludes with the Madu­ranese mas­sage us­ing aro­matic es­sen­tial oils. As I sur­ren­der to the ex­pert hands of my ther­a­pist, it feels like I am be­ing trans­ported to sev­enth heaven. I have to say that Chi Spa at Shangri-La Ho­tel, Surabaya re­ally ex­ceeded my ex­pec­ta­tions. Al­low your­self to be pam­pered from head to toe and en­joy a jour­ney of phys­i­cal and spir­i­tual re­lax­ation un­der the ex­pert hands of the Shangri-La Ho­tel, Surabaya’s trained ther­a­pists.
