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.

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 heard a lot about Chivasom-Som in 15 Years so was exited to be able to visit for the first time. Well, long drive (3hours with a booked chauffeur) after a 15 hours flight. The place is very nice although you feel that it would need some sort of makeover when you suddenly see the bill at the end. Staff... More

If you need time to un-wind, de-stress, or just relax (Healthily)… then treat yourself to a Wellness Break at Chiva-Som – as we have just done…FIRSTLY… don’t be put off by the fact that it is primarily a Wellness Resort & Spa, Chiva-Som is your “Haven of Life” on the Gulf of Thailand. Chiva-Som is about learning to live, enjoy... More

I have had the good fortune to visit Chiva Som since 2007. It was the reason the I managed to stop smoking. To renew myself physically, mentally and emotionally. If you can afford the time and the cost, highly recommended, but only if you go for at least two weeks.
