Soneva - the original barefoot luxury brand

Soneva Kiri has a no news, no shoes attitude, where you are encouraged to make the most of each glorious moment. Located on Koh Kood, one of Thailands most pristine and untouched islands, it is the perfect place to experience a slice of Southeast Asian paradise.
Surrounded by sandy beaches and lush rainforests, this is the perfect place for those who want to feel a million miles away from everything else and simply bask in the restorative benefits of nature.

Prepare to be amazed – this resort offers uber-luxuries in spades. Vast private villas await, each with its own pool, but rather than glossy furnishings, these rooms are imaginative, extremely comfortable and exude authenticity. Each room has its own golf buggy for you to use to get around the resort with ease when it's time to explore.

Families are especially welcome at Soneva Kiri, not only is there a wonderful beach, offshore islands to explore, ancient rainforests to trek through, water sports galore and an outdoor Cinema Paradiso, but Soneva Kiri’s team will even give the children a few star gazing lessons before bedtime! The kids club – The Den – really has to be seen to be believed.

Your Soneva experience begins at Bangkok International Airport. You will be greeted by Soneva Kiri’s private airport representative at the gate, escorted through immigration and checked in at the Soneva Kiri Counter. After a 70 minute flight to Koh Mai Si our private airport island, you will be taken by a luxury speed boat to the resort’s jetty where the Soneva team will welcome you.

Top Tips from our Experts


Destination Specialist

"Although Koh Kood is a Thai Island, it is really close to Cambodia. Soneva Kiri operates a flight between the island and Siem Reap. This is a great way to make your trip into a multi-centre holiday, and see how different the two countries are"

Thank you

Hurstbourne Tarrant, United Kingdom

We'd just like to thank Dimitri for your kind hospitality. Very much appreciated! It's a lovely peaceful spot with great views. Fantastic architecture, pool, food and a lovely island to be on. Please keep the island so undeveloped and natural, this is why we went to visit Ko Kut

Heaven on Earth...

We do not know where to begin, this being our second time to Soneva Kiri, we have had the same wonderful and memorable experience at this property yet again!!We have traveled to many resorts/hotels worldwide but nothing compared to our experience in Soneva Kiri. Right from the arrival at Bangkok everything was seamlessly organised and executed. The Soneva's private 8 seater Cessna Grand Caravan was exciting but not for the faint of heart so come prepared for it! The resort is everything as described, beautiful and sparsely populated yet without making you feel uncomfortable. Two key highlights during our stay at Soneva Kiri which epitomizes the quality of the resort (1)the warmth of the people and hence the quality of service. Every request was taken care of and our expectation was exceeded at every step.A special mention to our Ms. Friday Kun Tida who tirelessly took care of our requests with a smile.Also a special mention to Kun Ting who took care of all our dietary needs and developed a very special bond with our 5 year old daughter. Last but not the least, Kun Ann from "The Den" not only for teaching our daughter interesting activities but also for being very creative and artistic herself. Secondly, the effort the team put in to keep the children occupied was outstanding compared to any other resort we have visited in the past. For a start, The Den and Eco Den are very intricately and tastefully designed and constructed and staffed by very friendly and artistic people with plenty of creative ideas and activities to keep the kids busy. Here too our little girl developed a bond with Kun Ann who is so wonderful with the little ones. As a relatively remote island, we would expect some constraints around the availability and quality of food. Nevertheless, here too our expectations were exceeded. Our special mention to Kun Benz, the eponymous chef of the Benz who prepared an outstanding vegetarian dinner for us on two occasions. Lastly, the telescope, the free supply of a wide variety of ice creams and freshly prepared chocolates and the buggy for each villa are the special perks to look forward to. Thankyou Godfrey and your team for the sensational stay. We apologies if we missed out anyone in your team. All of them were well trained, very professional and friendly and we enjoyed our stay. Our daughter still treasures the beautiful hand made departure gift. We look forward to coming back again in the future.

Food & Drink

The Dining Room

The resorts main restaurant is a rustic yet chic eatery, nestled into a rocky cliff, surrounded by majestic trees and looking out over stunning sunsets. The cuisine here is Thai and Mediterranean, with twists of Indian and other flavours to complement the extensive menu. There is even a dedicated ham and cheese room! Breakfast is a particular crowd favourite at this restaurant.

So Chocoholic

This will be the favorite place for anyone with even a hint of a sweet tooth. A refrigerated room, packed with complimentary chocolate.

Treepod Dining

A "must-do" while at The Soneva Kiri is to experience Tree Pod Dining - taking fine dining to new heights. Luxuriously chilled-out in a bamboo pod, you will be hoisted six metres into the trees, you will savour a fine range of courses, gazing out across the boulder-covered shoreline in total peace and comfort. Your gourmet delights and beverages are delivered via the zip-line acrobatics of your personal waiter.

The View

The View takes its name from it dramatic outlook; gaze out to the horizon whilst you dine on modern bistro food. Created with locally sourced ingredients, but cooked with western techniques. The menu will change daily to ensure that the freshest, most in-season items are used.

Destination Private Dining

The resort prides itself on being able to organize an intimate meal anywhere. A picnic by a waterfall, on a private island or anywhere infact that catches your eye. Every dining experience is unique, fun and oh so romantic.


This exceptional restaurant is next to the Klong Yai Kee Waterfall. A wooden structure sitting on stilts and lit by lanterns, and accessed only by boat through the mangroves. Each evening, there is a new nine-course Thai tasting menu aimed at surprising and delighting guests. Each course is inspired by ingredients which are grown and sourced locally.

So Spirited

Perched on top of a cliff, gaze out to the ocean and the rainforest whilst deciding which of the 60 flavours of homemade ice cream or sorbets you would like to try.

Within The Den are four distinct rooms - the Art Room, the Music Room, the Fashion Room and a Library with catamaran-style netting floor and overstuffed cushions - where activities such as nature printing, playing music with glasses, making things from recycled items and coconut leaf folding take place. In addition to the Den there are also child-friendly excursions and cultural exchanges. Rainforest walks and local school visits leave lasting impressions. And activities to be shared as a family abound, from dinners amidst the wilds to stolen chocolates from the free and endless supply in the chocolate room. Children from the age of 1 are welcome.
