Chi Spa - Shangri La's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa (Penang, Malaysia)


The next agenda on my list after dining in Spice Market Cafe? Some time of mine idled away before heading to Chi Spa (Rasa Sayang Foot Reflexology) located within the huge outdoor garden. Me taking a 10 minutes leisure walk through nature at its best and via the pathway leading into Chi Spa which sort of indicated that I am going to be the queen of hearts for the next one and a half hours. Furthermore, once I was already seated in this cozy, rustic, spacious and a traditional standing by its strength hut. Honestly, I felt as though I am in nature untouched world before hot tea coming to my way and prior to the masseur paying her utmost attention to me.   






How did it start in Chi Spa? Masseur being seated beside me and asking me some questions about my health after I had filled up the form. Thereafter, she explaining the meaning to "Chi, Ying and Yang". Did I understand what she was trying to tell me? To a certain extent. But to tell you the truth, I was more interested in the treatment which of course took off subsequently. To the treatment room. Ohlalalla!! Just so amazing. Really. Really. The package I had already prior confirmed? "Rasa Asmaradan" and "Lotus and Milk Indulgence". 

My things into the locker and of course I had to change. Towel wrapping and being seated on the chair for feet pampering. Feet soaked in warm water, and then scrubbed and wiped.

Subsequently? My beauty bath. Outdoor beauty bath and me getting into the bathtub. Water gushing from the corners of bathtub and rose petal and milk concoction. 20 minutes of my moment for relaxation and unwinding my stress, and trust me, I really felt I am Cleopatra. 20 minutes in fact flew by like 20 seconds and before I knew, my Cleopatra time halted. Damn! Wish I could have still be soaking in the bathtub and staring at the sky. Not possible. Time out indeed. I went like? Oh-no. Can I have more please at which the masseur couldn't help grinning.


Up next? Shower and wiping my body for receiving the pouch bundled up with a concoction of local herbs.  Pressed all over my body while I was floating in cloud 9 or even 100. Wonder pleasure.

The last draw? Oil massage. Nutmeg-sandalwood oil on my body and an hour of solid sincerely appreciated massage. God! Heaven. An hour flying by like within seconds and me still yearning for more. Can't be right? I know. With a heavy heart, I got dressed and returned to the reception to settle my bill (RM514.00). Expensive but you know what, worth every penny. Simply the best. Hopefully, if I return to Rasa Sayang again, I must treat myself again in Chi Spa. Thank you ladies for making me day.
