Seven acres of gardens, wellness programs, rooms with private balconies and butler service. This is Chiva Som, a luxury health resort facing the Gulf of Thailand, just south of Bangkok. In addition to 3, 5, 7, 10, 14, and 21 Day wellness retreats like Inner Wellness, Art of Detox, Weight Management, Natural Healing, and Yoga For Life, they combine classes on everything from daily massages and yoga to spa cuisine meals, meditation, aqua therapy, and holistic health. In short, they’re considered one of the best holistic spas in the world and we can’t wait to try them out to offer our personal review.
Hydrotherapy treatments include aqua skin polish with spearmint and apricot to exfoliate the skin and a food philosophy that means “healthy cuisine but with so many flavours you will never notice it’s good for you!” Think: the freshest produce delicately mixed with fresh herbs and spices.
Chiva-Som chefs create daily menus to offer the widest range of dishes to suit a healthy lifestyle while satisfying your appetite. So, you won’t be deprived if you don’t want to be deprived, but you will have clean, delicious fulfilling healthy fare. They claim to have the tenderest steaks, the tastiest lamb, the softest chicken, the most delicate fish and the freshest vegetables combined with local herbs and spices to produce great tasting dishes.
We believe it. If Forbes says they’re top notch, we won’t be doubters this time.
Retreats from 3, 5, 7, 10, 14, and 21 days
