Asia Wellness Retreats Re-Opening Dates
Coronavirus lockdown has taken its toll on our mind, body, and soul, so we’re very pleased to see a slow awakening of luxury wellness retreats in Asia, for local business at least. Here, we’re listing Thai Wellness Retreat re-opening dates and outlining some of the health retreats which will be available to restore health, wellness, and balance post isolation.
To date, Thai borders are currently closed for international travel due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Chiva Som, Hua Hin is open
Chiva Som has re-opened its door now to welcome back guests with an exclusive one-time offer ‘Thai Wellness Tourism’ promotion. Although it may take a little longer to welcome international guests, if you’re a Thai resident you can take full advantage of this leading health resort’s fantastic health and wellness programs at a snip of the usual price. These mini-retreats include a ‘Two-Night Wellness Getaway’ and both full and half day ‘Wellness Experiences’. Starts at only THB12,000 (USD$385) per night for a newly renovated, stunning Ocean Room.
If you’re planning your post isolation recovery, Chiva Som Wellness Retreats to consider are:

Because of COVID it’s so difficult to travel the world and experience what we love. Don’t know when all this will end.
Yes, it’s true, since this blog went to print, dates for international re-opening of borders in Asia are constantly changing and it’s looking more likely that travel will not resume until nearer the end of 2020. Gratitude for health and wellness at home and faith that wellness travel will resume is all we can hope for right now. Stay safe and well.
