The World’s Best

Chiva-Som further cements its position as the world’s leading wellness destination after receiving three of the highest accolades at the 2020 World Spa Awards.

A pioneer in global wellness, Chiva-Som keeps standards high having received three accolades at the 2020 World Spa Awards. The flagship property in Thailand, Chiva-Som Hua Hin, was crowned Asia’s Best Wellness Retreat and Thailand’s Best Wellness Retreat at the award ceremony, while its first venture outside Thailand, Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som in Qatar, was named the World’s Best New Wellness Resort.

The World Spa Awards aims to drive up standards in spa and wellness tourism and to foster growth by rewarding the leading organisations in their respective fields. Award categories cover the entire spectrum of the spa and wellness industry, ranging from hotel spas, detox programmes and aromatherapy brands, to wellness apps, spa destinations and wellness retreats. Announced on 28 October 2020 at a digital celebration, the World Spa Awards recorded a phenomenal show of support from spa and wellness professionals, as well as spa consumers, this year with an outstanding number of nominations.

Chiva-Som was recognised as a leader in wellness, and its flagship resort, located on the shores of Hua Hin, Thailand, since 1995 is highly regarded for its world-class facilities and the wellness team’s unparalleled skill and depth of knowledge in inspiring optimal health and wellbeing. Offering a holistic approach to health and wellness that blends Eastern and Western philosophies, Chiva-Som Hua Hin is renowned for the quality of its therapies as well as its delicious, healthy wellness cuisine. A host of cutting-edge physiotherapy and spa treatments further enhance an already encyclopaedic wellness offering, cementing the brand’s longstanding position as a pioneer in the wellness industry.

“We are deeply touched and proud to receive worldwide recognition for our continuous efforts within the spa and wellness industry. With both Chiva-Som in Hua Hin and Zulal Wellness Resort in Qatar being recognised in the awards, this is a wonderful testament to our brand promise of supporting and delivering exceptional health and wellbeing experiences for our guests. We are excited to have created something completely new with Zulal Wellness Resort, whilst ensuring the much loved Chiva-Som DNA runs through every element of the offering, and we only hope to elevate our benchmarks of excellence in the years to come,” said Krip Rojanastien, Chairman and CEO of Chiva-Som.
