HEALTH & LEISURE...
Villingili Maldives Spa Resort enjoys ample space and provides many possibilities for a healthy start to the day. Take a walk through the resort's jungle, dive in the lagoon, jog along the beach, follow one of the marked jogging trails or exercise at the well-equipped gym. By day, energetic guests, able to drag themselves away from the beach can enjoy waterborne activities like surfing, scuba-diving, kayaking, sailing, deep-sea fishing, or a cruise on a luxury yacht for lunch on the equator.
CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, a place of personal peace, enchantment and well-being.
This secluded sanctuary is located in its own spa village within the resort, with spacious individual treatment villas offering "spa-within-a-spa" environments. There is also a unique yoga pavilion overlooking the Indian Ocean, and individual treatment villas with private gardens and steam rooms, a changing room and a shower. The spa menu offers a selection of Asian massages and Indian Ayurvedic treatments, alongside locally inspired treatments and specific well-being programmes.
In traditional Chinese philosophy, "chi" or "Qi" is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. For people to maintain good health, it is believed that "chi" must flow freely within the body and, when blocked, "dis-ease" and illness follow. Movement is therefore a key element in releasing blockages. Body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and movement of the mind through relaxation and meditation combine to assist the body's natural renewal and form the basis of the CHI spa philosophy.
