THAILAND WELLNESS PROPERTY REFRESHED
Chiva-Som in Hua Hin has recently reopened after six months of extensive renovations, the property’s first refresh since opening in 1995. Works have focussed on the Thai Pavilions, Emerald Room, Orchid Lounge and the inclusion of an all-new golf retreat on site. A new room category, the Thai Pavilion Suite, allows guests to relax on their own private outdoor sala, a private room with space for six guests. The ‘Total Golf Enhancement’ retreat is suitable for players of all skill levels. For those that need a nudge from a pro, in-house professionals can monitor players’ golfing techniques and provide feedback and assessment. Operating with high environmental standards, the property has implemented several initiatives to reduce energy consumption, treat and reuse water and minimise waste. Chiva-Som can be reached by a 25-minute private plane trip from Bangkok.
