Shangri-Spa is one of the major locations you will visit in Paper Mario: The Origami King. This floating paradise is filled with angelic Toads looking to relax after a hard day’s work of running the Mushroom Kingdom. However, after Bowser’s Fortress crashed into this massive spa, the Toads have put all the Koopas, Goombas, and other minions to work. Four of these workers are the Snifits, which are supposed to be running the merchant stalls in Shangri-Spa’s main courtyard.
Unfortunately, they’ve all run off and it’s your job to locate them so you can actually purchase their items. Since all of these vendors sell high-end goods, they are absolutely worth hunting down, especially before you fight the Sumo Bros guarding Bowser’s Fortress.

Shangri-Spa Snifit Locations
Green Stall Snifit
The first Snifit is very easy to access, as all you have to do is smack the umbrella over its stand. This will cause the Snifit to pop out and go back to manning the merchant booth. This vendor sells a 10 point health upgrade for 10,000 Coins. This may seem like a steep price, but I always recommend obtaining health increases whenever possible. Not only does this let you instantly kill some foes, but it will give you more survivability in battle.
Yellow Stall Snifit
This is the Accessory vendor and it can be found on a floating island just admiring the view. From the main courtyard, go up the stairs and turn immediately right. You should see a path leading to a stone wall with a convenient hole you can fit through. Step onto the moving platform to rise up to where the Snifit is and speak to it. The Snifit will then join your party for the ride back and run to the stall once you land. For around 2,000 Coins each you can purchase the Gold Heart Plus and Gold Guard Plus accessories. Snap both of these up, as they’re benefits are invaluable.
Blue Stall Snifit
There’s a high chance you already found this Snifit, as it’s lounging on the roof of the stalls to the left. Go up the hill behind these stalls and heads towards the stands Walk across the boxes and you’ll find this vendor soaking up the sunshine. Talk to it to open up the staff, which sells a Flashy Mushroom for 560 Coins and a Shangri-Spa Toad treasure for a staggering 17,360 Coins. I do recommend picking up a few Flashy Mushrooms, as they are perfect for restoring a ton of health if you’re on the verge of death.
Orange Stall Snifit
The final Snifit is stuck in the bridge on the way to the Jungle Spa. Go up the hill to the left and take the floating platform up to the jungle area. Near the end of the wooden bridge, you’ll find the Snifit stuck between the panels. Approach this Snifit and hold A to pull it free so it can run back to the orange stall. This Snifit sells the Legendary Boots and Legendary Hammer for 1,470 and 1,554 Coins respectively. This is the only place you can consistently buy the most powerful weapons in the game. If you have the cash, I strongly recommend buying a few of each. They are perfect for dealing with any troublesome foes or pouring on damage to bosses.
