Chiva-som Em­barks On Third Stage Of Ren­o­va­tions

Re­sort will re­open on 1st Novem­ber this year


Chiva-som In­ter­na­tional Health Re­sort has closed its doors for a six-month pe­riod to em­bark on its next phase of ren­o­va­tions. The re­sort, which will re­open in Novem­ber, be­gins the third of four phases of its ex­ten­sive re­mod­elling, the lat­est de­vel­op­ments will com­prise a com­plete over­haul to the Thai Pav­il­ions, Emer­ald Room, Orchid Lounge, Li­brary, Fit­ness Cen­tre and Ni­ran­lada Medispa. In line with the new re­sort mas­ter plan, the hall­marks of which are con­tem­po­rary and supremely com­fort­able in­te­ri­ors, the new look is re­alised with ma­te­ri­als such as lo­cal teak, silk and bam­boo. Keep­ing their quin­tes­sen­tial Thai spirit in­tact, the Thai Pav­il­ions will be brighter, lighter and more spa­cious, cre­at­ing a serene, calm­ing space which re­flects the tran­quil­lity of the re­sort. A new room cat­e­gory, the Thai Pav­il­ion Suite, will feature an out­door pantry and its own out­door pri­vate glass­walled sala, a pri­vate space for around six guests set amidst the tran­quil gar­dens and is suit­able for pri­vate meals, med­i­ta­tion or just for re­lax­ing.

The ad­di­tion of a glass wall in the Emer­ald Room will cre­ate a fresh, con­tem­po­rary and re­lax­ing space, flooded with nat­u­ral light, where guests can en­joy break­fast, lunch and din­ner. The Orchid Lounge will un­dergo a com­plete makeover to be­come an invit­ing and so­cia­ble spot in which guests can in­ter­act, wel­com­ing also a pi­ano and pond-side seat­ing new open juice bar. The Li­brary will also

be­come airier and the new home of the re­tail shop, whilst the Guest Relations Desk will be moved to a more pri­vate and dis­creet part of the re­sort.

The Fit­ness Cen­tre will in­crease in size to in­cor­po­rate a larger gym area and a sep­a­rate stretch­ing space with an ar­ray of new car­dio equip­ment, func­tional and non-func­tional train­ing equip­ment as well as a pri­vate train­ing room. The Ki­ne­sis Room will be re­named the Re-func­tional Stu­dio, home to a pri­vate Neu­rac Room, Func­tional As­sess­ment room and boast­ing brand new equip­ment in­clud­ing a BIODEX 4 PRO Isoki­netic Dy­namome­ter to help with re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, leg mo­bil­ity and bal­ance, as well as pre­par­ing the body for more stren­u­ous ex­er­cise. Fur­ther ad­di­tions are the highly versatile and space-ef­fi­cient Queenax func­tional train­ing equip­ment; a unique sus­pended body weight train­ing sys­tem and an Elec­tri­cal Mus­cle Stim­u­la­tion sys­tem (Vi­sion Body) to help re­duce ex­er­cise-in­duced joint dam­age and aid re­cov­ery. The Ni­ran­lada Medi-spa will evolve from its orig­i­nal clin­i­cal de­sign to be­come a warm, homely and re­lax­ing oa­sis. The con­sul­ta­tion room will pro­vide greater pri­vacy dur­ing body as­sess­ments and a brand new makeup room will be added for guests re­quir­ing a lit­tle fur­ther in­dul­gence.

This highly an­tic­i­pated re­fur­bish­ment is be­ing over­seen by Chair­man and CEO of Chiva-som In­ter­na­tional Health Re­sort, Mr. Krip Ro­janas­tien, who to­gether with De­sign­re­al­iza­tion Siam co. ltd, one of the world’s most re­spected ar­chi­tec­ture forms, has de­vel­oped a mod­ern and fresh take on Asia’s much loved clas­sic. Reser­va­tions are avail­able through­out 1st Novem­ber 2018 to 30th April 2019. www.chiva­
