Beautiful Resort with amazingly supportive staff
Chiva Som is more than just a beautiful wellness resort. It is a health retreat with staff that guide you with as much or as little as you want to do. Delicious food. A transformative stay. The holistic health team identify injuries of guests and squeeze every last ounce of energy from you in classes that run from physio to kinesiology.
Checking into Chiva Som has been on the bucket list for a while, once I finally made time for the trip it delivered everything it committed to be:- a highly personalized wellness journey focused on complete lifestyle transformation. For 5 days I was able to fully recharge, reflect and seek out the best solutions for my personal goals. I have been fortunate to visit Health Retreats all over the World and Chiva Som is World Class. Timeless in its design and a very comfortable experience across all touchpoints of the Resort. The menu offering was incredible and reinforced the benefits of eating nutritious and light meals as the foundations of health and wellness. All staff delivered, attentive, personalized service and the experience of all the one on one training was outstanding. Renee Grandi the Clinical Nutritionist & Naturopath was exceptional in her knowledge to create the right health and healing pathways. The Shirobhyanga treatment is a must try! I sincerely can’t wait to return to this haven 3 hours south of Bangkok.
Chiva Som is a flawless health resort
Everything about Chiva Som is perfect. I was there for a 5 night “Art of Detox”, which is a fasting program, and it was wonderful. On this program they serve you meals but it is just a soup broth. I felt really great by the 3rd and 4th day, much healthier than when I arrived, and now I see great benefit in doing a program like this once to twice per year. I intend to go back to Chiva Som annually. Although I only ate regular food for my first and last meal, the food was very healthy and delicious. They don’t even have unhealthy options available. There is a very extensive range of daily activities like various kinds of yoga, stretching, Tai Chi, etc (much more than I could do in my 5 night stay). Each guest has a health consultant and they consult with you to develop a daily schedule of activities, which for me ended up to be quite full. The facilities are perfect, all with the latest equipment – well-equipped fitness center, steam baths and sauna, extensive massage facilities (by masseurs who are highly trained), flotation tank, etc. All facilities, including the rooms are perfectly maintained. I think it would be impossible to find anything not working at Chiva Som. The quality of the staff is outstanding, and the service quality is incomparable. If you make any kind of request, they get what you are requesting, and it reliably happens. The staff are super friendly. Every customer-facing staff knows who you are and what room you are staying in. The service level is on par with Four Seasons or St. Regis but somehow even better as there are many more customer touchpoints at Chiva Som compared to a typical 5-star hotel or resort. Overall, this is as well managed as a resort can be, and for anyone who wants to spend a week being super healthy, I highly recommend Chiva Som.
Time to relax and eat healthy
A beautiful wellness resort on the beach. Top rated instructors in their field look after you. I know it sounds like their commercial, but it is true. The Japanese doctor gives you acupuncture to relieve you from pain and stress. Thai and other types of messages done professionally. Yoga, Tai chi, stretching and so many other things you can do. The food that is served is healthy and the calories mentioned. Your privacy is protected as no cameras or phones allowed in public.
World class health resort
Located in Southern Thailand, Chiva Som is a world class health resort in the mold of Canyon Ranch and Miraval, only better. The facilities, the rooms, the service, the food was all outstanding. We stayed on a five day package in a very nice garden suite. It took me a day or two to get into the flow of things, but once I did, I didn't want to leave. Honestly wish I done the seven day package.
