About Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort

Shangri La's Tanjung Aru is a large resort, with 495 recently renovated rooms, 7 restaurants and plenty of facilities and activities making it ideal for families.

The convenient location close to town and the airport makes Shangri La Tanjung Aru Resort ideal as a pre or post tour hotel, as well as being a lovely resort in itself.

CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La Hotel, Tanjung Aru offers a unique spa design concept - a stand-alone ‘Spa village’ sits on an ‘island’ connected to the hotel via a private causeway.

Each of the eight villas at Chi Spa has its own herbal steam room, spacious relaxation area and private changing room.  A private yoga pavilion with a deck extending out over the South China Sea offers spectacular sunset views.

Traditional Borneo treatments on the spa menu are plant-based in nature, energy aware and reflect the multi-cultural heritage of the region.  CHI, The Spa at Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa has been voted ‘Best Spa in Malaysia’ by Spa Finder.

In traditional Chinese philosophy, ‘Chi’ or ‘Qi’ is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality.  For people to maintain good health, it is believed that ‘Chi’ must flow freely within the body and, when blocked, ‘dis-ease’ and illness follow.  Movement is therefore a key element in releasing blockages.

Body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and movement of the mind through relaxation and meditation combine to assist the body's natural renewal and form the basis of the CHI spa philosophy.
