The Spa: Chi at the Shangri-La Dubai

Rest and rejuvenation is but a stone's throw away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai's busy Sheikh Zayed Road

Spa aficionados will say you need regular treatments to feel the full stress-busting benefits of a massage. The problem is, with treatments often upwards of 60 minutes – not to mention the time it takes to get changed, and the like – the time spent out the office may add to your overall stress, not take away from it.

Indeed, if regular treatments are the answer, then only spas that are centrally-located will do. Fortunately, there is one such haven of tranquillity adjacent to Sheikh Zayed Road, and but a stone's throw away from both Dubai's International Financial Centre as well as the Downtown district.

Chi, the Spa at the Shangri-La Dubai, embraces the fundamentals of vitality and fitness, to achieve a balance between luxury and good health. It pairs holistic spa rituals with the finest European skincare products, and each treatment is customised to your personal health or stress-busting goals.

There are six treatment rooms, along with whirlpool facilities, an outdoor pool and sun terrace, along with health club facilities – including a gym, swash court and fitness classes. While it's most popular treatment – the Hot Lava Shell massage – involves placing naturally warming shells over your body, the Asian Blend massage is the most straightforward. And if time is tight, you can be in and out in under an hour.
