Pioneering and transformative wellness destination Chiva-Som Hua Hin in Thailand invites guests to welcome a new year with peaceful living, joy, and hope. Its Natural Renewal retreat takes a holistic and all-encompassing approach to restoring balance to life, as well as to mind, body, and spirit.

Daily life can be stressful, whether due to work, family responsibilities, or unforeseen circumstances and mishaps. Stress induces higher cortisol levels, and over the long term negatively affects the immune and cardiovascular systems, cognitive function, sleep, and overall health. By creating a peaceful environment for ourselves and taking a few moments each day to relax and practise mindfulness, we can counter these effects, and invite joy and hope into our lives.

With a peaceful setting of manicured gardens that front the ocean, Chiva-Som Hua Hin is a natural ‘Haven of Life’. For those looking for tangible methods to lower stress levels, its Natural Renewal retreat addresses all aspects of well-being. Beginning with a holistic consultation to uncover the root causes of an individual’s stress, a personalised programme will then be drawn up that teaches stress management techniques and how to incorporate them into daily life. 

Relaxing treatments included in the retreat are drawn from Asia’s great healing traditions. Guests may select from acupuncture, acupressure, or reflexology, each addressing energy blockages in the body which may manifest as pain, digestive troubles, insomnia, or chronic immune dysfunction. The Chi Nei Tsang massage, a Chiva-Som specialty, concentrates on the abdominal area where tension and negative emotion are stored, releasing it and restoring the flow of healthy energy. Those looking for a lighter touch may enjoy Reiki, crystal healing, or Shirobhyanga. A back, neck, and shoulder massage, meanwhile, directly addresses office syndrome.

All Chiva-Som retreats include unlimited access to the Water Therapy Suites, with a steam room, sauna, plunge pool, Jacuzzi, and Kneipp reflexology path. Guests also enjoy up to a dozen complimentary group classes a day, with meditation, relaxing arts such as fruit carving and floral arranging, and gentle yoga sessions that cultivate mindfulness.

“Getting away, even if only for a few days, and surrounding ourselves with peace is vital for recharging the mind, body, and spirit”, says Chanyapak Suwankantha, Chiva-Som’s Wellness Director. “As well as relaxing our bodies, we create space within ourselves for gratitude, joy and hope. While joy brings positivity into our lives, leading to lower stress levels and an improved mood, hope helps us build resilience, making it easier to navigate life’s challenges”.

The Natural Renewal retreat is available for five, seven, 10, or 14 nights, inclusive of accommodation, three wellness meals per night of stay, individual consultations, a complimentary daily treatment, and the retreat-specific inclusions. Rates begin at THB 34,000 ++ (approx GBP752++) per person per night for double occupancy and 45,000++ (approx GBP995.29++) per person per night for single occupancy.
