My last short trip to Thailand was an unprecedented immersion in slowness and peace. My journey led me to Hua Hin, south of Bangkok, the first beach resort area born in Thailand, in the 1920s a stop over for wealthy Thais in search of charm and beauty. Its popularity among foreigners was instantaneous, also confirmed by the healthiness of the climate, the wonder of the beaches, the atmosphere appreciated even by the Thai royals who made it their buen retiro contributing to transforming it into a very trendy location. Despite this allure Hua Hin has known and still knows how to manage itself in order to avoid the excesses of other seaside resort areas in the country, remaining a calm and relaxing place punctuated by small family boutique hotels with old style charme, but with an excellent level for worship of the Wellness as confirmed by the “Chiva-Som” pioneer structure and wellness oasis without comparisons. With its seven-acre garden stretching to the beach, this sanctuary of peace has been created in harmony with the natural environment where stress, excess, noise are banned in favor of tranquility and balance. A true “Paradise of Life” – this is the meaning of Chiva-Som – where to discover or rediscover the art of living and enjoying every moment of the day, grasping personal strength and tracing a personal path of self-discovery. A wellness consultant welcomes the guest in this Thai energy retreat, ready to listen to the visitor’s needs, to understand their deepest needs, to guide him on his regeneration journey entrusted to treatments that lead to the sublime meeting of body and spirit. For this reason we have made Hua Hin a “My Ideal Traveling” destination, because it marries our philosophy of “pacification” and bliss.
