Chiva-Som celebrates the festive period with an inspiring and uplifting range of holiday experiences, from fundraising dinners supporting the resort’s commitment to sustainability, to welcoming the arrival of the Year of the Rabbit with a rock n’ roll-themed New Year extravaganza.
Kicking off celebrations on 12th December, the resort will welcome back acclaimed Michelin-starred Chef Dan Bark, of renowned Bangkok restaurant Cadence, for an exclusive collaboration with the resort’s Executive Chef Sinchai Srivipa. The eight-course dinner promises to be an unforgettable night of gastronomy, featuring premium and locally sourced ingredients, and showcasing the two master chefs’ distinct cooking techniques, while maintaining the resort’s signature of both nutritious and delicious wellness cuisine.
The proceeds from the evening will go towards Chiva-Som’s Krailart Niwate Mangrove Ecosystem Preservation Project, Hua Hin’s only mangrove ecosystem. Spearheaded by Krip Rojanastien, CEO and Chairman of Chiva-Som and the Preserve Hua Hin Group, the project has seen over 11,000 mangrove trees planted since 2007, and has supported the construction of a 1,000-metre elevated boardwalk along which visitors can explore the reserve while surrounding themselves with the healing qualities of nature.
On 24th December, guests are invited to join a barbecue dinner at the beachfront Taste of Siam, accompanied by carol singing by local hilltribe children, before waking up on Christmas morning to a delectable festive brunch.
On 31st December, welcoming the arrival of the Year of the Rabbit, Chiva-Som guests will then be treated to a ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll-themed New Year party. Celebrations begin with a curated cocktail at the Orchid Lounge courtyard, followed by an indulgent yet healthy poolside dinner with live music and fun activities. These include costume contests and portrait drawing as well as a glass-blowing workshop, where a beautiful glass rabbit is created for each guest to take home. To mark the end of 2022 and bring blessings for the year ahead, guests are invited to join the resort in giving alms to local monks the next morning.
For those looking to give the gift of wellness this Christmas, the online Chiva-Som Boutique offers a selection of beautifully crafted lifestyle gifts and wellness sets, with delivery worldwide. A favourite is a set of 100% natural tai chi pyjamas and sleep spray.
Chiva-Som’s fundraising gala is priced at THB 10,000 net per person, the Christmas barbecue at THB 2,500++ per person, and the New Year’s Eve gala at THB 15,000++ per person.
