Chi The Spa

Barr al Jissah, Oman

While most of the world’s largest yachts congregate in the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, an increasing number of superyacht owners are visiting more remote destinations. But, just because some of these locations are less well-trodden, doesn't mean you need to sacrifice your luxury pampering as it is still possible to find some of the best luxury spas in the world.

Here is our guide to six of the best luxury spas in adventurous locations:

1. Chi, The Spa at Shangri-LaWith picturesque beaches and waters filled with a plethora of marine life, including yellow-fish tuna and sea turtles, this stretch of coastline is slowly being discovered by the superyacht elite ­­– recent visitors included Motor Yacht A and explorer yacht Itasca.

At the heart of this middle-eastern jewel, which includes three Shangri-La hotels, lies Chi The Spa. Set in a traditionally styled villa the central courtyard, with lush vegetation and flowing water, sets the spa’s calming atmosphere.
