The currently closed wellness resort Chiva-Som International Health Resort in Hua Hin, Thailand, has announced it will reopen its doors on 15 October 2019, ahead of the originally planned date of 1 November 2019 due to the excellent progress of renovation. This date will mark the completion of the fourth and final stage of a top-to-toe renovation – the first major works since its 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 and 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 much loved resort.
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 and 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, whilst 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 Niranlada Medi-Spa will welcome a warm, luxurious and relaxing atmosphere, home to the very discreet facial analysis room, various treatment rooms and a make-up room for guests requiring a little extra pampering.
This highly anticipated refurbishment is being overseen by chairman and CEO of Chiva-Som International Health Resort, Krip Rojanastien, who together with architecture firm Designrealization Siam, has developed a new take on Asia’s much-loved classic architecture.
