I loved everything about Chiva Som. My "room", if you could even call it that - it was bigger than my apartment in London - was gorgeous. I had a little pagoda attached which was beside the lake and I ate dinner there a few nights. The staff were fantastic and the food was out of this world... I only... More

It is fair to say I am not overly health conscious and have never been one to exercise, so, to spend a week in a health resort partaking in a fitness programme was always going to be an interesting experience and not one I can compare to others. But I'm pleased to say that I enjoyed it thoroughly. Chiva Som... More

An awesome place where you feel rejuvenated and at peace the moment you walk in. When we first landed in Thailand we were met by two young ladies and whisked away in a buggy to immigration, through baggage claim and to a beautiful, spacious Mercedes Benz which carried us to Chiva-Som which is about 2.30 hrs drive. After making a... More

Chiva Som has been on my bucket list for many years. What I realized after this stay was that Chiva Som has a great PR machine behind it and not much else. Service from the staff was very cold and sombre. After the first few interactions my traveling partner and I had to ask ourselves if it was something we... More

Although expensive especially for Thailand it is an amazing place. Wonderful treatments, exercise classes, great staff and the healthy food is amazing! The spa area and pools, yoga pavillions and gardens great a wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommend I have been 3 times over the years and would go more often if it was a little more affordable.

This was my 8th visit to Chiva Som and most of the other guests I spoke to were repeat visitors which I guess means there is a lot of loyalty and devotion to this place. it has a certain uniqueness for being a fantastic place to retreat to when you need to destress and recharge your batteries. There are small... More

After a horrible detox at a place called New Body and Mind on Koh Samui (I usually book New Leaf Detox Resort but they were booked out) I decided to spend the money and travel to Hua Hin with my wife for a short 4 night relaxation and treatments. Chiva Som is almost 20 years old and it is very... More

I've read a lot of reviews about this place both good and not so good but the ten days I spent at Chiva Som with my husband in February 2013 were possibly the most blissful ten days I can remember. I only wish we had got into the swing of life at Chiva Som a little earlier in our stay... More

I have heard a lot about Chiva Som and finally have managed to experienced it this month. Location: -Beautiful place, beautiful surroundings ! The place is designed to help you relax, find peace, loose weight, distress or whatever your goal may be. Long drive from the airport , about 3h, but it is worth it when you get there. Staff:...
