Chiva-Som International Health Resort is the Grande Dame of destination spas, it has been purging and cleansing its guests for 20 years, and still remains triumphantly at the top of its game. Nestled amongst acres of lush tropical gardens in Hua Hin, a mere two hours by road from Bangkok, Chiva-Som is the perfect spa for everyone. It caters in equal measures for the solo traveller, couples, or a group of friends.

Asia is brimming with snazzy health spas, minimalist and cool, but Chiva-Som is a world away from this sort of offering, its aim is to deliver long-term health benefits by changing the way you live. During your stay at Chiva-Som, you will follow a fluid schedule advised by the experts who will ensure you enjoy a balance of treatments and relaxation. Think Tai Chi at sunrise, followed by a nice stretch, with kickboxing, Pilates, yoga and meditation all on the list. With all classes scrupulously chosen by their team - tried and tested, and you can be positive that you will be challenged to the limit by the very best instructors. Chiva-Som boasts an extensive range of spa and alternative treatments. As well as the range of massages and facials, there are colonic irrigation therapies and flotation, scrubs, body polishes, iridology and seaweed treatments, milk baths and acupuncture. Treatments cover everything from chakra balancing to physiotherapy. You can be sure you will also have the access to the world’s top visiting experts, as this is the place they all want to come to.

Food has always been delectable at Chiva-Som, saintly yet scrumptious. The menu features contemporary Thai cuisine with international influences’, food that is low in fat, salt and sugar, and big on flavour. You can still have chocolate brownies, although it will only have just over 200 calories. You can learn how to cook healthily, with daily classes to teach you the art of preparing and cooking the Chiva-Som way. It’s all about education, learning and understanding about food, and ultimately helping you to eat healthier.

With elegant rooms that have been recently renovated, there are countless reasons why people may choose to visit Chiva-Som, but it is undeniable that the main thing that keeps enthusiasts returning year after year are the results. After a week here you will feel brand new, and more importantly, you will take a wealth of knowledge with you on how to live your life better.

"Karen who helped book the holiday was fantastic, very efficient and there were no issues making additions to the holiday a few days before the check in date.
The transfer we booked via Healing Holidays on the arrival pick up was great, again very pleasant and no problems however on the return we decided to cancel direct with the company as we no longer needed it. We didn't want a refund just called the gentleman to say we didn't want it, on the phone call he was rude, aggressive and refused to cancel still showing up at 2:55am in the hotel lobby in the morning making trouble with the reception staff. Terrible transfer company!!"
