Making Room for Chi

Chi, The Spa stands out from the rest with unique offerings that not only celebrate tradition and culture, but also seamlessly combine them with innovation. 

Hilot

Among its signature programs is the Traditional Philippine Hilot: an ancient massage that uses banana or tubatuba leaves to release obstructions to energy flow or chi, push out toxins, hold changes in temperature, and prevent external elements (wind or cold) from entering the body.

This treatment includes the use of virgin coconut oil with ylang ylang or lemongrass scent. It begins with a Foot Bath or Suob, followed by Head and Shoulder Massage or Hingut-an, then a gentle patting dry of the feet. Afterwards, the much-awaited hilot massage and a soothing ginger tea cap off the 120-minute relaxing respite.

Traditional and Royal Hammam Body Treatments

Chi, The Spa also serves as a sanctuary of Traditional and Royal Hammam body treatments. The old-world tradition finds a home in the spa’s carefully-curated and elegant facilities. These amenities and features include a heated marble-topped “bathing slab,” cold wall panels, bathtub, a dedicated private shower, and changing room.

Chi, The Spa’s Traditional Turkish Bath

Hammam is a traditional Turkish bathing establishment that typically uses heat or steam. Chi, The Spa offers it as a full-body treatment with a reviving body scrub and foam massage to soften muscles and relieve tension, as well as refresh the mind and soul. The scrub and foam massage also help promote blood circulation to revive the skin, drawing out deep impurities to detoxify and reinvigorate the whole body.
