Good to Know

To maintain a restful and relaxing atmosphere, electronics and cameras can only be used in guest rooms and in the library but not in public areas. Chiva-Som’s healthy environment has been created to give everyone the best possible benefits so alcoholic drinks are limited to champagne and wine in the evening only and smoking is permitted in designated areas only.


Hua Hin, a heritage destination on the Gulf of Thailand, is 185 kilometres south of Bangkok. Still the most desirable ocean-front destination in the Southern province of Prachuap Khiri Khan. Hua Hin first gained popularity in the 1920s when the Thai royal family established a collection of summer palaces there, and today, it attracts discerning, like-minded travellers from around the world.
