CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney has elevated its status as Sydney's ultimate inner city relaxation escape with a refreshed décor and pool area and a new menu featuring a host of luxuriant treatments from Australian company Sodashi.
CHI, The Spa's new menu now offers 20 specialised facial and body treatments thoughtfully designed around Asian philosophies of wellness to create transformative relaxation, anti-ageing and rejuvenation experiences.
Founded by Megan Larsen, Sodashi products are 100% natural – unparalleled in performance and purity, they employ only therapeutic-grade, ethically-sourced essential oils and plant actives to effectively heal and nurture the skin. Sodashi products and spa therapies are found only in the world's top spas and CHI, The Spa is one of only four exclusive spa stockists in New South Wales.
An exhilarating new addition to the CHI, The Spa menu is Sodashi's premium Samadara Ultimate Age-Defying Facial, which harnesses Sodashi's most powerful anti-ageing formulas to transform and reawaken the skin. At the heart of the treatment is Sodashi's transformative Samadara Ultimate Age-Defying Crème, a unique alchemy of pure plant ingredients and rose quartz crystal water that promotes the skin's natural healing abilities.
The indulgent and generous 1 hour, 45 minute sequence of anti-aging techniques rooted in Ayurvedic healing traditions uses a Rose Quartz crystal massage to enable the rich Samadara to penetrate deeply into the skin – a delicious treat that forms the definitive CHI, The Spa experience.
For guests in need of a quick rejuvenation, Sodashi's Stop and Relax express facial is ideal. This 30-minute intensive facial is a highly effective, decadent treat for executives and travellers seeking to unwind and restore a sense of harmony.
The three Sense of Place treatments provide a taste of the Australian wilderness before even leaving the spa. Powerful and fragrant native ingredients, including pink clay and essential oils of eucalyptus and wattle seed, are applied in an indulgent massage to provide guests a truly refreshing and restorative Australian experience.
The only one of its kind in the world, the new Crystalus Body Massage is a sumptuous and uplifting relaxation journey. It uses West Australia-sourced Tiger's Eye crystals for their healing properties as part of an indulgent full body massage.
“CHI, The Spa has long been recognised as one of Sydney's top hotel spas and is adored for its peaceful and tranquil environment and its spacious and calming treatment rooms,” said Spa Manager Chaniele Erasmuson.
“The menu has really matured and grown with our client base, while still retaining some of our most iconic treatments like the Executive Jetlag Recovery and the Chakra Healing.”
“The spa is a beautiful and calm sanctuary amid the shopping and sights of the city,” Chaniele said. “Our therapists have had extensive training in the Sodashi treatment philosophy and practise to take guests on a moving journey towards relaxation and rejuvenation.”
