For years, the Chiva Som destination spa in Hua Hin has been "the" place to go for the ultimate in pampering, especially if you needed to drop a few pounds. There have been a few challengers over the years, but none have succeeded. Well, until now.

Times Online has put Chiva Som to the test, up against upstart challenger, the latest Six Senses spa that opened late last year on Phuket. It’s a running battle based on style, services, food, etc. The spoiler: Six Senses wins, but not decisively.
