During your time in the spa, you'll need to visit all four hot springs, labeled here as numbers 3, 4, 6, and 7. Once you've entered all of those, make your way to the mysterious Spring of Rainbows, labeled with a question mark!

Shangri-Spa Walkthrough

Entrance and Front Desk

1 Walk north, across the bridge. The clouds will part and reveal a temple, with a sign that reads Paradise Found. Enter the temple to reach Shangri-Spa.
2 Talk to the Toad at the front desk to learn that, for the price of 1000 coins, Shangri-Spa offers "a place for you to rest, reflect, and be renewed through the power of hot springs." You will also receive a Stamp Card.

Spring of Purification

1 Enter the western entrance to the Spring of Purification (effective against rips and tears). To soak in the hot spring, simply walk into it and stay still. After soaking, get your Stamp Card stamped (red, lower right stamp). Exit through the west door.
Head to the northwest corner and hit the ? Block to get the Legendary Hammer.
2 Upon exiting, you'll meet Kamek. Follow Kamek along the path of the Green Streamer, leading to Bowser's fallen castle.
3 When you attempt to enter Bowser's fallen castle, a lightning beast will attack you. Bowser Jr. will arrive in a clown car, but will be cut up by a flying, giant pair of scissors. Return to the Spring of Purification to restore Bowser Jr. and his clown car.
4 After defeating the Chargin' Chucks in the hot spring, restore Bowser Jr. in the Spring of Purification. Bowser Jr. will need to be restored in every hot spring at Shangri-Spa. Exit west to head to the other hot springs.

Spring of Sanctuary

1 Head south of the center fountain to arrive at the Spring of Sanctuary.
2 Battle and defeat the Goombas in the hot spring. Soak in the hot spring to restore yourself and Bowser Jr. again.
3 Get your Stamp Card stamped (purple, lower left stamp).

Spring of Bliss

1 Head to the center fountain of Shangri-Spa, then head east. Cross the bridge to arrive at the Spring of Bliss.
2 Go around behind the hot spring's pool and jump over the crack on the back wall. Defeat the Hammer Bro to make blue water flow into the hot spring.
Go to the east side of the hot spring to find a ladder. You can find several 100 coins on top.
3 Soak in the Spring of Bliss to restore Bowser Jr. some more.
4 After soaking, get your Stamp Card stamped (green, upper right stamp) and exit back to the center fountain.
5 Slightly northwest of the center fountain, walk to the ledge and jump onto the floating platform. This will take you to another floating platform. Cross the bridge northward and enter the path to the Spring of Jungle Mist.

Spring of Jungle Mist Walkthrough

MAX UP Heart Location

Max UP Heart Shangri-Spa.png

In the northeast section of the main plaza, you'll find two stalls. Hit the blue parasol on the left stall to send a Snifit flying out, who will take helm at the stall. This Snifit will sell you a +10 HP MAX UP Heart for 10,000 coins. It's a bit of a steep price, but since MAX UP Hearts will boost Mario's attack as well, it's well worth it for the battles ahead!

Tips & Strategies

How to Buy Legendary Iron Boots

Shangri-Spa Legendary Iron Boots.pngEnlarge

The Legendary items booth on the southwest area of the plaza will sell only Legendary Boots at first, which cannot stomp on some enemies. However, you can unlock Legendary Iron Boots from the shop here.

To buy Legendary Iron Boots, you'll need to find the Snifit in the right booth on the top of the stand to make it return to its post. Then, you'll need to buy Treasure No. 102: Shangri-Spa Toad. After you've purchased it, the Legendary Iron Boots will appear in the shop to replace it.

Treasure No. 102 will cost 24,800 coins at full markup, so be sure to bring your Gold Membership Card to slash the price in half to 12,400 coins!

Buy Treasure No. 101 for 10,000 Coins

Shangri-Spa Buy for 20000 Coins.pngEnlarge

Although it might seem like a total rip-off, 10,000 coins is the best price you will get for this Collectible Treasure. If you initially reject the price and come back later after collecting more trophies, the price will have raised to 20,000 coins.

There doesn't seem to be any way to reduce the price back to 10,000 coins, so be sure to pick it up while it's on “sale”.
