Chiva-Som closes for six-month renovation

by Jane Kitchen | 30 May 2018

Thailand's famous 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 on 1 November 2018, begins the third of four phases of its extensive remodelling, following the launch of the new Ocean Rooms and Suites in January 2017. A fourth and final phase of works will take place at the same time next year.

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

The latest developments will comprise a complete overhaul to the resort's Thai Pavilions, Emerald Room, Orchid Lounge, Library, Fitness Centre and Niranlada Medi-Spa.

In line with the new resort master plan, the new look is realised with materials such as local teak, silk and bamboo. The Thai Pavilions will be brighter, lighter and more spacious, and a new room category, the Thai Pavilion Suite, will feature an outdoor pantry and its own outdoor private glass-walled sala, a private space for around six guests set amidst the gardens and suitable for private meals or meditation.

The Emerald Room will get a new glass wall, and the Orchid Lounge will undergo a complete makeover to become a sociable spot in which guests can interact. 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 Niranlada Medi-Spa will evolve from its original clinical design to become warmer and more relaxing, with more private spaces and a new makeup room. 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.
