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.
