Chiva-Som has been honoured in this year’s Condé Nast Traveller Spa Awards, winning the top award for Best Destination Spa 2020. The awards, sponsored by the wellness travel specialists Healing Holidays, recognise the top-level retreats, the most-results-driven health centres and the hottest spas around the world, with winners chosen by the magazine’s editorial team and a panel of industry experts.
The announcement, presented at a prestigious awards ceremony at London’s Lanesborough Hotel on 28th January, comes as the resort prepares to celebrate 25 years of operation in April this year. Comprehensively renewed and re-energised after a phased five-year, top-to-toe refurbishment, the ‘new’ Chiva-Som reopened for business in October 2019.
The past quarter-century has seen Chiva-Som build an enviable reputation as a world leader in inspiring optimal health and wellbeing. Guests are motivated and supported throughout their journey by knowledgeable, caring staff who address their goals with Chiva-Som’s inimitable heartfelt hospitality. To complement the new redesign, which is defined by light, space and understated, contemporary comfort, the resort has introduced a host of enhancements, including improved post-stay aftercare, ensuring guests have further access to Chiva-Som’s renowned wellness team.
Chairman and CEO of Chiva-Som International Health Resort, Mr. Krip Rojanastien, said of the award: “We are honored to have been recognised by Condé Nast Traveller, and this accolade is particularly special, awarded to us 25 years after opening. Over this time we have witnessed a rapid and continuous evolution in wellness and lifestyle habits, seen health trends come and go, and experienced a sea change in the way people travel for their health and wellness. We are proud to have always evolved in response to our guests’ feedback, whilst remaining committed to our core principles of delivering holistic, sustainable wellness programmes which provide lasting transformation of mind, body and spirit. As the resort embarks on its 25th anniversary year, we hope it will continue to inspire wellness for clients old and new for many years to come.”
