Chiva-Som International Health Resort in Hua Hin, Thailand, is hosting its first ‘Wellness Journey Fundraising Gala Dinner’ to raise funds for Krailart Niwate, a mangrove preservation and environmental wellness project to protect Hua Hin’s last remaining mangrove forest.
The event will be held on 1 December 2019 at the resort, with tickets priced at THB 10,000 (USD 328.84) per person – the price includes an eight-course wellness-inspired cuisine dinner with a selection of four wine pairings or wellness drinks.
Chiva-Som’s executive chef Sinchai Srivipa will collaborate with Michelin star chef Dan Bark from Upstairs Mikkeller Restaurant in Bangkok to present an exclusive culinary display for this dinner. The gastronomic journey will feature premium and nutritious locally sourced ingredients that the chefs will transform with their distinctive taste and signature cooking techniques.
In addition to the gala dinner, chef Dan will also create a complimentary bespoke wellness menu for the guests of Chiva-Som on 2 December 2019.
“Innovative wellness cuisine.”
“This charity gala dinner also celebrates the final phase of Chiva-Som’s two-year refurbishment. Guests of our resort will not only experience the innovative wellness cuisine of Chef Sinchai and Chef Dan but will also witness the new look of the refreshed Taste of Siam restaurant which will be completed in October 2019. This will mark the final piece of our entire resort renovation,” said Vaipanya Kongkwanyuen, general manager of Chiva-Som.
Krailart Niwate mangrove preservation project, which has started since 2013, is one of the environmental wellness project under Preserve Hua Hin Foundation spearheaded by Krip Rojanastien, CEO and chairman of Chiva-Som and the Preserve Hua Hin Group under the royal patronage of Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. Located in the area of Khao Krailart temple, the Krailart Niwate mangrove is the last remaining mangrove in Hua Hin.
