Afternoon Tea is Served at CHIVA-SOM


International Health Resort, a pioneer in global wellness destination Chiva-Som has introduced a complimentary Afternoon Tea being offered to guests in The Orchid Lounge from 2.30 pm – 5.00 pm each day.

Guests are invited to relax and enjoy a beautiful selection of treats including Mochi with Sweet Red Bean Paste, Tropical Fruits with Savour Almond Balls and Mango Sticky Rice.

The array of herbal teas being offered include Rooibos, Lemongrass, Ginger, Scent of Forest, Peppermint, Safflower, Rosella, Spice, Moringa, Dandelion and Turmeric.

The Orchid Lounge has undergone a complete makeover to become an inviting and sociable spot in which guests can enjoy afternoon tea and interact, welcoming also a piano, pond-side seating and an open juice bar.

This stunning setting formed part of Chiva-Som’s 6-month refurbishment program last year which also included a complete overhaul of the Thai Pavilions, Emerald Room, Library, Fitness Centre and Niranlada Medi-Spa during which the resort was closed from May and re-opened 1 November 2018.

From 1 May – 31 October 2019, Chiva-Som will be closed for completion of its extensive refurbishment program.
