About CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver
The Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver opened its doors in 2009, marking the Shangri-La brand's entry into North America. The property, located in downtown Vancouver, encompasses the first 15 floors of a 61-story skyscraper, which holds the title of the city's tallest building. Hotel interiors are modern with Asian-influenced decor, with stylish amenities including well-appointed accommodations, many of which provide magnificent skyline views, and MARKET by Jean-Georges restaurant, where guests can enjoy regional cuisine.
Signature treatments at CHI, The Spa are based upon the Asian five elements of metal, water, wood, fire, and earth; upon arrival, guests answer a questionnaire designed to establish their own element, allowing their therapist to best personalize treatments based on the guests' needs. Ample meeting and event space is available, and the hotel's prime downtown location is within close proximity to much of the city's shopping, nightlife, and sightseeing spots.

With six private treatment suites and a menu of ancient Asian holistic rituals, CHI, The Spa has created an intimate oasis for guests to unwind and rebalance their "chi." Exotic spa treatments like the Yin Yang Harmonizing Massage utilize tai chi techniques, and signature therapies are inspired by CHI's five elements—metal, water, wood, fire, and earth.
The CHI Balance Massage is the spa's hallmark service; the 70-minute treatment includes a steam shower and welcoming foot ritual. Other highlights include the Pure Silk & Cashmere Body Wrap, combining the benefits of silk protein, aloe vera and lotus extract and commencing with a full-body glow and a dry peeling with silk gloves that primes skin for the cashmere and silk set. Also featured is the spa's exclusive Pearl Radiance Facial.
The six suites come furnished with a shower, fireplace, and bathroom, allowing guests to create their own private and relaxing space. The five-element spa cuisine is available to be paired up with any treatment for total wellbeing.
