The Shangri-La, with over six kilometres of coastline and nearly two kilometres of beach, is the perfect resort for people that like to keep active.

The Shangri-La is certainly an island for the active at heart. It has so much to do that it would be difficult to get through even half over a week.

Must Do: For a massage, you cannot go past the Chi Balance Signature Massage designed to balance our inner Yin and Yang. For a treatment, the Harmonising Chi Signature Journey leaves you feeling like a new person.
The Shangri-La's Spa is called 'Chi' which in traditional Chinese philosophy, is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. The Chi Spa is exactly that. A Spa offering a completely holistic approach to your health and well-being. It is set in beautiful private grounds and from the moment you walk into the reception area, you feel as if you have been transported to somewhere in central China.
