Chiva-Som's Mangrove Restoration Project


Award-winning beachfront resort and spa Chiva-Som has begun the process to preserve the delicate mangrove ecosystem in Hua Hin, Thailand. Since becoming “steward” of the mangrove in 2007, Chiva-Som has helped to plant over 2,000 trees for reforestation, cleared rubbish from the area and led rehabilitation projects, which has improved municipal wastewater quality. The team has also created a Junior Ambassadors programme, in which students gain first-hand knowledge of mangrove ecosystems and environmental issues. The students specifically learn about climate change and environmental degradation, while gaining respect for nature.

Chiva-Som has collaborated with local scientists and academics from Silpakorn University to create the first ‘green’ ecotourism education centre in the region, named ‘Krailart Niwate’ or The Mangrove Ecosystem Preservation & Science Education Centre. The structure, designed by the Silpakorn University Faculty of Architecture, is carbon neutral and will serve as a leading example of sustainable design and construction. The Science Education Centre will invite students to promote science learning at a young edge and will be open to the general public in 2017.

"Healing Holidays do exactly what it says on the tin. They helped me plan and organise a wonderful escape that helped us all to do a major reboot. We enjoyed luxury pampering, fantastic gourmet macrobiotic food, and excellent advice from health care providers and trainers. As our flight departure time meant that we had to leave a few hours prior to check-out, Healing Holidays arranged for us to arrive early on the day we checked-in. They also arranged a car to collect us and take us to our spa and back to the airport at the end. All questions were answered promptly and advice was given when requested. An excellent service."
