Chiva-Som Hua Hin is Asia’s first comprehensive wellness resort, providing proven transformations toward optimal wellness. Nestled in seven acres of tranquil grounds, Chiva-Som is a beachfront resort dedicated to revitalizing the mind, body and spirit (represented by its tri-part logo). Western practices and Eastern philosophies are brought together in a wellness resort that provides services for guests to develop healthy habits and find a lifestyle transformation. The resort has been given recognition by readers and industry experts alike as one of the most outstanding wellness resorts in the world since its launch 22 years ago.
The beachfront resort is located in the town of Hua Hin, which lies about 115 miles south of the capital, Bangkok. It can be reached by car in under three hours, by private plane in 25 minutes from Bangkok or by chartered helicopter in 40 minutes from Bangkok.
Chiva-Som International Health Resort, which enjoys a reputation as a pioneer in global wellness, is proud to unveil the first mock-up images of the renovated Thai Pavilion room and the brand new Thai Pavilion Suite which will open in November 2018. Along with the updates to the accommodations, the resort plans to unveil renovations to the Fitness area, the Emerald Room, and the Orchid Lounge, also in November of this year. These enhancements to the resort’s offering follow the launch of the new Ocean Rooms and Suites in January 2017 and is part of the resort-wide renovation plan. After short periods of closure from May 1 to Oct. 31, 2018 (and the same period in 2019), guests will see the resort relaunched into a new era of wellness.
The style of the new interior is contemporary Thai, utilizing materials such as local teak, silk and bamboo. With an outdoor terrace, the aesthetic of the Thai Pavilion Suite is light and serene, creating a calming effect and reflecting the tranquility of the resort. The enlarged space makes the surrounding greenery much more relevant to the guest’s experience. The Thai Pavilion Suite comprises a bedroom and en-suite bathroom encompassing approximately818 square feet. Space has been maximized to give guests an expanded bedroom and living area, including a larger bathroom (now with two vanity counters, a new makeup counter and more connecting space for the shower and bathtub) and a larger dressing room with floor-to-ceiling wall mirrors to reflect even more light. For more relaxation and well-being, the ceiling has been raised to give an airy feel.
The Thai Pavilion Suite is approximately 1,151 square feet and includes an outdoor pantry and its own outdoor private sala, its most unique feature. The glass-walled private space is set amidst tranquil gardens and is suitable for private breakfast, lunch and dinner, meditation, or for simply relaxing. Glass doors, automatic blinds and insect screens in the sala can be kept open or closed — in either case offering beautiful views of the surrounding lake and gardens.
The wellness resort’s multifaceted renovation will be implemented under the direction of Krip Rojanastien, Chairman and CEO of Chiva-Som International Health Resort, together with Designrealization Siam Co., Ltd., a distinguished design company, allowing for innovations in Chiva-Som’s unique wellness experience for guests throughout their stay.
Chiva-Som is Asia’s first comprehensive wellness retreat and destination spa, providing an integrated and personalized approach to transformations of mind, body and spirit for optimal well-being.
