chiva som

7 night programmes from £4,135 chiva som hua hin

This is a highly professional destination spa set on a long stretch of sandy beach with excellent tailored health programmes and international visiting consultants.

The grounds are peppered with squares of lawn and huge banyan trees, and Thai-style accommodation includes rooms overlooking the sea and private inland pavilions. The beachside Taste of Siam restaurant serves delicious traditional thai food, while the main restaurant is the place to go for more western-style and detoxifying fusion foods.

Facilities are numerous and slickly organised. There’s a lovely, large outdoor pool with lots of loungers, an indoor pool for lengths next to a giant, traditionally-styled hammam and an array of exercise rooms. Male and female water suites have steam rooms, saunas and hot tubs, and Thai staff are always on hand to pass you whatever you need.

Whatever your health goal, there are results-focused themed retreats to help you reach it, from detox, de-stress and weight loss programmes to special weeks devised for insomniacs and people with chronic injuries or back pain. Personalised nutrition programmes are available, the complimentary exercise classes change daily and the spa treatment list is vast (and there are 70 treatment rooms). For pampering, delicious signature facials and cocoons using their own naturally-derived products. If you’re so inclined, there’s even a large cosmetic-orientated medical centre.

Programmes:  All programmes are priced the same, making it very easy for the experts looking after you to adapt and amend programmes during your stay in order to achieve optimal results.  View all programme options

Healthy Traveller Tip

Chiva Som excels at detoxing - their therapists are some of the best we’ve encountered for safe, properly supervised colonic irrigation and the Thai abdominal massage, Chi Nei Tsang.
