An impressive 70 treatment rooms serve just 54 guest rooms allowing great flexibility on treatment timings. Guests have use of indoor and outdoor pools, a Tai Chi platform, yoga sala, gym and library. The spa also offers steam rooms, saunas, Jacuzzis and relaxation areas.
Your stay at Chiva Som will begin with an initial consultation with your naturopath who will go through a detailed health questionnaire with you and help you to identify what you would like to work on. The large in-house team is supported by visiting practitioners operating in a variety of specialisms.
The rooms located in the two main buildings, overlooking the sea, are all in the process of being renovated in light woods and modern style, giving them a refreshed look. Guests preferring something more Thai in style will like the traditionally-designed villas located towards the back of the resort with shared courtyards.
The two restaurants serve a variety of Asian and European dishes à la carte, with mainly Thai or Italian influences. Taste of Siam is located by the beach and overlooks the sea while Emerald has an air-conditioned dining room as well as a covered terraced.
