Description

Chiva Som is set in seven acres of beachside land in the seaside resort of Hua Hin. International consultants in the fields of health and leisure from England and France created Chiva Som, which translates as “Haven of Life”, as a health and wellness retreat. On arrival guests are given a health and wellness consultation where short and long term needs are addressed and appropriate activities are recommended whether it is for stress relief, weight reduction, physiotherapy or a general detoxification.

At the heart of Chiva Som is the ultra-modern spa with an impressive array of facilities: 21 treatment rooms, face and body massages, scrubs, wraps, reflexology, aromatherapy, body reshaping and toning treatments. There is also a hydrotherapy suite with computerized spa massage baths, a unique floatation chamber for de-stressing, and colon hydrotherapy.

Delicious fresh spa cuisine is served to complement wellness activities and the traditional Thai style rooms are all elegantly designed and furnished with high quality Thai silks and many have spectacular views of the Gulf of Thailand.
