Award-winning luxury resort Soneva Kiri is located on Thailand’s fourth largest but least populated island, Koh Kood – just one hour by private plane south-east of Bangkok. It offers an unrivalled combination of luxury, an integral environmental approach, authentic Thai experiences and mouth-watering organic food.
Koh Kood is Thailand as it was years ago. Untamed jungle, pristine beaches, fishermen going about their business. Ancient Siam, at peace with itself.
Twenty-four of the largest resort villas in the world and eleven private residences, are vast in scale. Located on the idyllic beach or sunny slopes in the rain forest, all overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, boasting stunning infinity pools, impossibly chic furnishings, personal electric buggies and impeccable service courtesy of Mr./Ms. Friday private butlers.
Highlights include the open air Cinema Paradiso, Benz’ mangrove restaurant, the Chocolate and Ice cream parlour, the Observatory, The Den and the spectacular Treetop Dining Pod.
Join Chef Benz as she sources ingredients from the local village of Ao Salad, before learning how to prepare your first authentic Thai dish or indulge in Treepod Dining, taking fine dining to new heights, with gourmet delights and wines delivered via the zip-line acrobatics of your waiter. Savour a five-course meal made with mushrooms grown in Soneva Kiri’s Mushroom Hut – all within a natural cave tucked away in the jungle.
Sample treatments from the Six Senses spa menu, embarking on sensory journeys without leaving the enclave of Soneva Kiri Resort and uncover the mysteries of the universe with the resident Astronomers, gazing upon the surface of the moon or the rings of Saturn.
Films screen nightly in the open-air theatre, a jungle-enshrouded auditorium of cascading cushions over the lagoon waters.
Marvel at a secret waterfall before getting acquainted with the 100 species of butterflies on the island or visit North Beach, a stretch of pure white sands and crystal clear waters, rivaling the best beaches of the Maldives and enjoy an authentic discovery of the local way of life, experiencing villages, a mangrove forest, and a stunning waterfall.
A range of complimentary waters sports including kayaking, paddleboarding, and hobie cats are on offer while you discover the fascinating marine life that lives beneath the waves by diving in the Gulf of Thailand’s tropical waters under the highest international standards with our Scuba or Open Water Diving courses or snorkel the pristine coral reef at Koh Rang Yai National Marine Park.
Barefoot Intelligent Luxury at its best. No news, no shoes, Thai style. Soneva Kiri is committed to the Soneva Group’s slow life philosophy: Sustainable-Local-Organic-Wellness Learning-Inspiring-Fun-Experiences.
