Chiva-Som International Health Resort in Hua Hin will reopen its doors on October 15, 2019, ahead of the originally planned date of November 1, 2019, after a top-to-toe renovation – the first major works since its inauguration 24 years ago.
The first three stages of the refurbishment project, which is undertaken by architecture firm Designrealization Siam, involved the reworking of the accommodation and many of its facilities and public areas, while the current final chapter will see improvements to the health & wellness area, bathing pavilion, Niranlada Medi-Spa, and seaside restaurant Taste of Siam.
During the current phase of works, the health & wellness area is being uplifted with more natural light. Also, the spa and physiotherapy treatment rooms will see the addition of a new hydrotherapy suite and flotation chamber, whilst the bathing pavilion will incorporate a sunbed area, separate male and female changing rooms and a hydro pool delivering new hydrotherapy functions. The Niranlada Medi-Spa will also house a facial analysis room, various treatment rooms and a make-up room.
Lastly, the Taste of Siam restaurant is being reconfigured to accommodate additional seaside tables for up to 100 guests. The open kitchen will be brought indoors to create a casual, interactive dining experience, whilst an improved layout will offer guests uninterrupted sea views, come rain or shine.
