Chiva-Som International Health Resort

73/4 Petchkasem Rd.
Hua-Hin , Thailand http://www.chivasom.com/
66 3253-6536

Given that its setting is near the King of Thailand’s summer palace, it’s only fitting that this destination spa—hidden within seven acres of banyan- and frangipani-filled gardens on the beach of Hua Hin—makes you feel like royalty. After a welcoming lemongrass tea, a personal adviser will help you plan your program of classes, lectures, and treatments, which include holistic approaches from around the world, such as a detoxifying Chi Nei Tsang abdominal organ massage and Australian bush flower stress-relief elixirs. With a 7-to-1 staff-to-guest ratio, as many ultramodern treatment rooms as there are guest rooms (57), and butlers, Chiva-Som takes service seriously.
