The Pavana Chiang Mai Resort

(Mae Rim, Thailand)

The Pavana refers to themselves as a health resort and we couldn’t agree more. With over 100,000 square meters of countryside, The Pavana uses a “holistic approach for an inner and outer transformation.” They do this by sharing The Five Habits to Longevity (cleansing, proper eating, breathing, exercising and mind-purification.) Every guest who stays at the Pavana will experience a bit of each of these five habits. Yoga classes, detox juices, learning about raw food diets, hiking, cycling and daily meditation periods are just a fraction of what you can expect from the Pavana. If you need a reset, this is the spot for you. http://thepavanachiangmairesort.com/
