Chiva-Som re-opens after six-month renovation
POSTED 07 Nov 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
Thai wellness destination Chiva-Som reopened on 1 November after a six-month closure to complete the third of four stages of the resort’s first major renovation since its opening 23 years ago.

The latest aesthetic and hardware developments include a complete overhaul of the Thai Pavilions, Emerald Room, Orchid Lounge, Library, Fitness Centre and Niranlada Medi-Spa.

The refurbishment is being overseen by Krip Rojanastien, chair and CEO of Chiva-Som International Health Resort, who together with architecture firm Designrealization Siam Co. Ltd, has developed a modern and fresh take on the wellness destination.

In line with the resort master plan, the hallmarks of which are contemporary and comfortable interiors, the new look is realised with materials such as local sustainable teak, silk and bamboo.

The Fitness Centre has increased 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 and two fully renovated dance and Pilates studios.

The Kinesis Room has been 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 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.

Chiva-Som’s ‘Total Golf Enhancement’ retreat also launched 1 November, aimed at developing guests’ overall game. This new retreat is suitable for players of all levels and provides expertise in specialist areas, such as Golf Fitness Training and Golf Biomechanics. In addition to golf-specific inclusions, guests will also enjoy related treatments in essential areas, such as post-game muscle recovery, relaxation and skincare.

The Niranlada Medi-Spa has evolved from its original clinical design to become warm and tranquil. The consultation room will provide greater privacy during body assessments and a new makeup room has been added.

The Thai Pavilions have been made brighter, lighter and more spacious, creating a serene, calming space which reflects the tranquility of the resort. A new room category, the Thai Pavilion Suite, features an outdoor pantry and its own outdoor private glass-walled sala, a private space for around six guests set amid the tranquil gardens for private meals, meditation or relaxing.

The Orchid Lounge has undergone a complete makeover to become an inviting and sociable spot in which guests can enjoy afternoon-tea, interact, welcoming also a piano, pond-side seating and an open juice bar. The Library has also become airier and the new home of the retail shop, whilst the Guest Relations Desk has moved to a more private part of the resort.
