Chi, The Spa at Shangri-La Fijian Resort & Spa
Chi is the name of the Shangri-la Fijian Resort’s spa and is located near the adults-only reef wing of the resort. The beauty of the Shangri-la Fiji is that the resort site is so big and well laid out, when you go to the resort’s spa, you truly feel a world away from the rest of the resort. This spa is designed as a “mini village” and consists of four ocean view and rainforest treatment bures which overlook the ocean or a rainforest.
Chi’s massages and treatments are based on authentic natural healing methods found in traditional wellness practices by local and Asian cultures. Chi’s selection of treatments showcases Fiji’s natural botanical products and therapeutic properties. For the full spa experience, the ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ package will truly leave you feeling refreshed. Starting at dusk, your treatment begins with a water therapy bath, skin polish, herbal steam and traditional Fijian Bobo Massage. Stay overnight in your private spa bure and wake to a customised facial before you depart.
Spa InterContinental combines Asian, Eastern and Western treatment methods to balance the mind, body and soul. The spa has a lengthy menu with a long list of treatments to choose from.
For a truly unique spa experience, the Natadola Bay Honey Treatment will leave you feeling quite literally brand-new.

Spa at the Gate Fiji Airways Premier Lounge
When people think of airports they tend to think stress, panic and running through the departures terminal as the airline calls your name for final boarding. They don’t tend to think, relaxation and spa treatments. But, what better way to prepare for a flight then a spa treatment at the airport on your way out? Just make sure you leave yourself enough time.
The Fiji Airways Premier Lounge at Nadi International Airport has its very own spa, Spa at the Gate with a menu of massages, facials and pedicures.
If you’re not quite ready to give up the spa treatments and return to your daily life, a pre-flight massage will help combat the post holiday blues. If you’re transiting through Nadi for a long-haul flight, a cheeky facial can help combat your skin drying out whilst up in the air.
