Hotel Description

Thailand is a place whose hedonistic spirit is at least as big a draw as its natural beauty. Chiva-Som Luxury Health Resort, then, is a slight departure from the conventional travel wisdom about Thailand. As you might suspect from the name, Chiva-Som is anything but a debauched pleasure palace. Guests check in here to clean up and dry out, to relax and de-stress, to make major lifestyle adjustments.

Here the spa treatments and the health programs are the main attractions, with the beaches and restaurants playing second fiddle, and your fellow travelers out by the pool are more likely sipping carrot juice than cocktails. Despite the difference in purpose, however, Chiva-Som is every bit as stunning as the traditional resorts. The location is the seaside town of Hua Hin, traditional getaway of Thai royalty, two hours south of the capital on the mainland—not as removed from Bangkok’s bustle as Phuket, for example, but still anything but urban.

The resort sprawls over the rolling hills between the town and the coast, a collection of bungalows and pavilions nestled amid landscaped gardens. Guest rooms are handsomely minimal, with a heavy traditional Thai influence, and all the expected charms, like hardwood floors, hefty modern beds and spacious showers, separate from the slightly incongruous marble baths. Guest rooms in the main building have private balconies or terraces, and the pavilions scattered across the grounds offer an added measure of privacy.

As for the treatments, they range widely, from the encyclopedic menu of traditional spa and wellness treatments to the holistic and Ayurvedic programs to the medical or pseudo-scientific. Have your irises examined, if that’s your bag, but it doesn’t take a wellness specialist to point out that eating well, sleeping well and the occasional massage are bound to do some good.

How to get there: Chiva-Som is a 3 hour drive from Bangkok Airport. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers.
