What could be better and more rewarding for the mind and body than spending six days at Thailand's world renown Chiva Som Spa. Located 150 miles south of Bangkok on the Gulf of Thailand at the royal beach town of Hua Hin, this gem of a sanctuary packs an amazing array of holistic treatments and health services in seven acres of lush tropical greenery. Complete with a lake and an expanse of sandy beachfront, its design is complemented by accommodations that blend the best of Eastern styles and Western comfort. During your stay you will be given an individual health and wellness consultation, daily massages, physical and skin analysis, a facial therapy, a body cocoon, an Ayurvedic treatment, a deep cleansing back treatment, accelerated body shaping therapy, a pedicure and much more. And you will also enjoy three healthy spa cuisine meals a day.
On arrival at Bangkok you will be met at the airport or picked up from your hotel for your luxury transfer to Chiva Som Spa. You will be able to arrange your timetable of massages and facial therapies on arrival with your health and wellness consultant. But a good way to start is with a special jet lag therapy that will help you get over the long flight. Then, after a healthy and nutritious dinner, spend the first of five relaxing nights in your ocean side room. To help guests maintain a nutritious diet, Chiva-Som offers cooking classes and has produced two spa cookbooks so you can recreate your favourites.
Your first full day to relax and fully appreciate all that this luxurious spa has to offer and experience the pleasures of pampering in the expert hands of Chiva Som. Established in 1995, this "haven of life" was among the first Asian spas to meld the wealth of traditional Asian therapies with a Western approach to health and wellness. Although the East/West fusion spa style is prevalent today, Chiva-Som continues to distinguish itself from other resorts by carving out its own niche as an all-in-one luxury destination and health-care retreat.
Another day to experience the pleasures of Chiva Som. Holistic health lies at the core of the spa's approach that emphasises preventive health education and provides practical yet innovative lifestyle recommendations against the ravages of ageing and poor health. A qualified naturopath provides a consultation and will discuss your personal goals in terms of the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health results you wish to achieve and a programme will be devised combining medical, holistic, spa, fitness and nutrition making sure that you leave the resort happier and healthier.
Every day you can have unlimited use of the water therapy suites, and access to all the activities. Those who come with more specific goals in mind can choose from De-stress, Physical Remedy, Anti-ageing, Ultimate Detox, Fitness, and Weight Management Packages, which have recommended treatments and activities to help you achieve your objectives. With 59 treatment rooms to match 57 guestrooms, and more than 150 spa, fitness, holistic and medical technology treatments, you will be spoilt for choice. Chiva Som is supported by a corps of certified doctors, nutritionists, fitness instructors, therapists, and visiting world-class health and wellness consultants.
To help you relax Chiva-Som has a dizzying array of spa treatments to choose from, which include assorted scrubs, wraps, masks, and oils to slim, invigorate, refine, detoxify, smooth and soften the face, body, hands and feet. The heavenly selection of spa massages include Geothermal Massage which harness the benefits of volcanic stones and marbles and warm oil applied along the body's meridian points, and an indulgent three therapist South Indian body massage. Ancient Ayurvedic methods treat migraines, sinusitis and insomnia.
Make the most of today as it is your last at Chiva Som. Possibly try one final relaxing treatment or just chill out in one of the pool areas before you are collected and driven back to your hotel in Bangkok or to the airport to catch an onward flight or begin your journey home. This pampering break makes an ideal add on to any holiday in Thailand or a great 'stop over' when travelling to Australia, New Zealand or the Far East.
