Chiva-Som Experience

Start your trip

The First Three Days...

Your unique goals will shape your retreat, but because a stay at Chiva-Som is different from anywhere else, we'd like to paint you a picture of what to expect from your first three days.


You arrive at the resort after a long journey in our chauffeured limousine and are greeted by a member of staff who presents you with a garland of fresh jasmine and rose flowers. Our signature iced lemongrass tea and a cold towel are served to you in the open-air lounge area overlooking the lake. On the buggy ride to your room, you'll pass mature trees and fragrant flowers, whilst getting a sense of the orientation of the resort.


Once settled in and refreshed, you'll meet a Health and Wellness Advisor for a consultation. Your Advisor will review your medical history and help identify and prioritise your goals for the visit, and then work with you to fine tune your treatment programme. Your treatments are booked and a dietary programme is established and communicated to the Chiva-Som kitchen, with special care taken to share information about allergies, intolerances or special diets.

Daily Treatment

In addition to your scheduled retreat treatments, on each day of your retreat you can select a complimentary treatment of your choice from the daily menu. These include: Thai Massage, Chiva-Som Massage, Invigorating Massage, Relaxing Foot Massage, Oriental Scalp Massage and Chiva-Som Skin Haven Body Polish.

And finally... you can relax

Consultations, Assessments and Analyses

Doctors, Naturopaths and other wellness experts, both residents and visiting consultants, are available to assess your health and provide advice and information. Our approach is less about being prescriptive, and more about knowledge-sharing, enabling you to apply it.


Feel free to enjoy a number of our facilities, including Steam, Sauna and Jacuzzi. Then once ready, end the day with a delicious meal at one of our restaurants. If staying at the resort on a Saturday, join a themed, evening BBQ buffet at our Taste of Siam restaurant.
