Maybe it’s the natural setting — or it might be the world-class team of wellness professionals — but there’s definitely a pervading sense of tranquility for family travelers at Chiva-Som International Health Resort in Hua Hin, Thailand. If busy schedules and work obligations have kept you and your siblings from spending quality time together, the resort’s three- or five-night Nature’s Embrace getaway may be just the ticket to enhanced wellbeing and deeper family connections.

A contemplative, guided forest walk along the paths in the Krailart Niwate mangrove preservation project leads to the temple of Wat Khao Krailart on a sacred hilltop, where participants can gaze across the Gulf of Thailand during the Hilltop Meditation session.


Each night of the retreat, guests can select from a menu of therapies. During the day, activities include HIIT (high-intensity interval training), low-impact yoga, gyrokinesis and Bosu ballast ball classes. Try an energetic aerobattle class, or enjoy a serene Kneipp Therapy walk through the Bathing Pavilion. Cycling and kayaking are available, along with a private cooking class and a tour of the property’s own organic gardens.

Local herbs and botanicals feature in treatments such as the traditional Thai herbal massage, while the bamboo massage includes elements from traditional Swedish deep tissue massage therapy, skillfully combined with bamboo sticks and soothing oils to relieve muscle tension. All during the getaway, you and your siblings will dine on the resort’s delicious wellness cuisine, created with flavorful, healthy ingredients — many sourced directly from the property’s gardens of fresh vegetables, therapeutic herbs and mushrooms.
