Chiva Som

Bangkok, Thailand

The first of Chiva-Som’s international city retreats. The gardens are located on the tenth and eleventh floors of a former office block. The gardens are set over three levels and form an integral part of the spa experience.


A sanctuary from the bustling city below, created to allow rest, repose and relaxation. The entrance to the spa is through the atrium with open views of the roof garden above. The carefully orchestrated planting of bamboo, tropical trees, provides shelter and shade, while the water lily pools and orchid garden are traditional Thai garden elements.
