Pioneering transformative wellness destination Chiva-Som Hua Hin in Thailand invites guests to retreat and reset after a busy year, restoring mental and emotional balance to their lives with its holistic Spa Wellbeing and Natural Renewal retreats.

With a tranquil beachfront setting overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, the globally acclaimed, multi-award-winning Chiva-Som Hua Hin welcomes guests looking to end their year on a restful note. Its all-encompassing retreats are carefully designed to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit, with each programme personalised to the needs and goals of the individual.

The Spa Wellbeing retreat offers the perfect balance of relaxation and renewal. Many treatments are indulgent - including the traditional Ayurvedic abhyanga oil massage and Chiva-Som’s signature body cocoon, which journeys from invigorating to soothing - while some are also therapeutic, relieving deep-seated tension stored in both the body and the mind.

For those seeking full renewal - a “rebirth” when their current path in life has depleted their physical, emotional, and spiritual resources - the Natural Renewal retreat delves deeper to uncover the sources of mental and emotional imbalance. Working with the resort’s wellness experts, guests will learn how to let go of stress, improve their mindset, and make positive lifestyle changes - a holistic approach that incorporates healthy lifestyle habits and restorative treatments.

Those staying during the festive season will also enjoy exclusive workshops with some of the world’s leading wellness practitioners, complimentary for in-house guests. On 31 December, traditional Thai medicine practitioner Chananchida Banyeam will demonstrate how to promote inner harmony with the Tibetan Singing Bowl. Sound has been a staple of Buddhist meditation practices for centuries, with vibrations from the singing bowl influencing the body’s flow of energy while promoting balance and alignment in the mind.

On 1 January, guests will be invited to begin the new year as they mean to continue it, with a Loving-Kindness Meditation session led by 'Metta Healer' David Stojanovic. By taking the time to still the mind, and bestow loving kindness on both the self and others, guests can free themselves from the negativity that disturbs their mental and emotional balance.

The festivities themselves at Chiva-Som will be simple yet joyful, at what is typically a time of overindulgence instead of balance. On Christmas Eve, guests will enjoy healthy sangrias, a Christmas buffet, and carols; while on New Year’s Eve, a 1960’s theme of 'Peace & Love' will reign at the dinner and beach countdown, with lively entertainment throughout the night.

“A Chiva-Som retreat is much more than just a beach getaway”, says Chiva-Som Wellness Director Chanyapak Suwankantha. “Our all-encompassing approach to wellness targets mind, body, and spirit all at once; offering profound relief from the stresses of everyday life and the opportunity to transform from within and restore balance”.

Chiva-Som’s wide range of retreats include accommodation, three wellness meals per night of stay, personal consultations, daily treatment, complimentary group activities, and full use of world-class wellness facilities. Rates during the festive season begin from THB 42,000++ per person per night.
