Iconic wellness resort to reopen ahead of schedule
Popular wellness resort Chiva-Som in Hua Hin, Thailand has announced that the resort will reopen its doors ahead of schedule on 15 October 2019 due to the excellent progress of renovation work.
The date – ahead of the originally planned date of 1 November 2019 – will mark the completion of the fourth and final stage of a top-to-toe renovation of Chiva-Som International Health Resort, which is the first major work to take place since the resort’s inauguration 24 years ago.
Having received excellent feedback in response to the first three stages, which have seen the accommodation and many of the facilities and public areas reworked, this final chapter will see improvements to the Health & Wellness area, the Bathing Pavilion, Niranlada Medi-Spa, and the resort’s seaside restaurant, Taste of Siam.
This will complete the refurbishment project and see Chiva-Som welcoming guests again year-round, introducing a brand new era of wellness for the resort.
Considered a pioneer of the wellness industry, Chiva-Som offers world-class facilities as well as a wellness team with unparalleled skill and depth of knowledge. The enhanced ‘hardware’ offering is set to seal its status as a global leader.
During the current phase of works, the remaining facilities are being reimagined with Chiva-Som’s new signature interiors, which use teak, Thai silk and bamboo, complemented by a light and airy, calming and contemporary colour palette.
The latest work includes changes to the Health & Wellness area, which is being uplifted with more natural light. The Spa and Physiotherapy treatment rooms will be refined and refreshed, including the addition of a new hydrotherapy suite and flotation chamber, while the Bathing Pavilion will now incorporate a sunbed area at one end under a glass roof, separate male and female changing rooms plus a brand new hydro pool delivering new hydrotherapy functions.
The last of the public areas, the popular Taste of Siam restaurant, is being reconfigured to accommodate additional seaside tables for up to 100 guests. The open kitchen will be brought indoors to create a casual, interactive dining experience, whilst an improved layout ensures guests will always enjoy uninterrupted sea views, regardless of the weather.
The refurbishment is being overseen by Krip Rojanastien, chairman and CEO of Chiva-Som International Health Resort, who together with Designrealization Siam Co. Ltd, one of the world’s most respected architecture firms, has developed a new take on Asia’s much-loved classic architecture.
