After six months of renovation works, Thailand’s renowned wellness retreat Chiva Som has reopened its doors to wellness seekers from around the world, boasting freshly updated facilities and an all-new specialist golf retreat to cater to putters of all levels.

Its common areas have also been redesigned into more open and airer spaces, giving the resort a contemporary new look while ensuring that it stays true to its roots as a tranquil wellness retreat. Additionally, the resort’s lounge, spa, and dining establishment, Emerald Room, have been remodelled.
To celebrate the restaurant’s reopening, renowned chef Keisuke Matsushima served up his renowned French-Japanese fusion food – with a wellness twist – at the Emerald Room.
