It was the best spa! Not that I go to spas a lot, but I've been to a few in the Philippines. It's the best and perhaps most luxurious spa experience I've had so far. From the assistance I received while first inquiring, to arriving at Chi and to the massage itself, I give everything a 5! I first inquired... More

Went here last week to have the CHI Balance Massage. I have always been curious about the Chi Spa in Cebu Shangri-la Mactan (for the longest time) and was lucky to have had the opportunity to finally see the place for myself. The facilities are great and I found it more personalized as compared to The Farm in San Benito.... More

We were newly weds staying at the Shangri-la Mactan and have heard so much about the Chi spa so I decided to make a booking for a couples massage for 10am. We arrived on time, but was told to wait so they could prepare (even tho we were the first booking). After around 15 minutes, the therapist told us to... More

Chi Spa in Cebu welcomes us for a variety of relaxing, zen activities. We were 3 to experience, my 2 daughters 25 y.o. & 16 y.o. and I, 2 of us leave in Japan and we are all travelling a lot in Asia and love massages... The area, separate from the hotel is calm and elegantly decorated, asian style, but... More

Chi is a great place to escape and relax. 1. The facilities are above average -- serene, not musty or degraded by the salty air. Treatments are done in private villas, and come with access to common areas for steam, sauna and open air pool swimming/jacuzzi. 2. The staff is polite -- not too chatty, never snooty. They just take... More

I never had body massages so efficient and relaxing anywhere else. After such experience, you fell rested like after a good night sleep and full of energy. Of course there is also the very beautiful garden, very nice spa facilities and the friendly staff but the best is really their massage technique. I could book this hotel just for the... More

My partner and I had a couple of massages here. We arrived a little earlier to use the facilities but I can't say I was overly impressed with the luke warm jacuzzi and instead wish I'd stayed at the pool a little longer instead. One of our massages was not so good (the after sun wrap) as we ended up... More

The CHI Spa at the Shangri-La Mactan Resort and Spa is well worth the visit. The staff are attentive to your treatment preference and the treatment rooms are first rate. While the facility is aging, it is by far the best in the area and is capable of meeting demand when the hotel is fully booked. The only negative is... More
