Soneva Kiri

Soneva - the original barefoot luxury brand

Ancient Siam, at peace with itself.

Nestled on the unspoiled island of Koh Kood, far beyond Thailand’s tourist trail, Soneva Kiri offers unforgettable, authentic Thai experiences. Located only 60 minutes flight by private plane from Bangkok, Soneva Kiri’s 35 ultra-spacious pool villas, which range in size from one to six bedrooms, offer the ultimate in luxury and privacy.

Hike through the lush jungle, relax at our private beach, swim in nearby waterfalls or snorkel in crystal clear waters bursting with coral and reef fish. Unwind at the renowned Six Senses Spa with a range of wellness therapies to choose from. Savour candlelit dinners at Benz, arguably the best Thai restaurant in Thailand. Dine in the canopy with the Treepod Dining experience and feast on Michelin star gourmet delights and fine wines, delivered via the zip-line acrobatics of the personal waiter. The subterranean Wine Cellar features more than 350 labels presented in a climate-controlled cave, with more than 50% being organic or biodynamic wines. Delights await for our youngest Soneva guests too, with our complimentary ice cream and chocolate parlours, as well as the Childrens' Den shaped like a giant manta-ray hanging high in the treetops.  

Soneva Kiri is barefoot luxury at its finest.

Exclusive Sanctuary

After a 90 minute plane ride from Bangkok we arrive with the luxury resort’s own private plane to Koh Kood Island. What strikes you is how green the island is. Upon arrival you are greeted by the attentive staff and taken to your villa in a buggy. The villas are truly exquisite and we stayed in a pool villa, just a quick stroll from the beach. This "No Shoes" sanctuary is truly relaxing. In case you want activities there is a lot to choose from. We did the rainforest tour to look at the nearby waterfall, the massage and the Eco Centro tour to learn more about the luxury resort’s commitment to sustainability. They have an amazing circular program you wish all resorts would have. A lot of the food served in the restaurants is grown here, the flowers in the villas comes from the plant nursery, wastewater is recycled and there is a circular thinking surrounding everything they do. Keep up the good work. Soneva Kiri is truly one of its kind. The food we ate was unforgettable - especially at The View restaurant and we also enjoyed afternoon tea in a treepod served by a waiter arriving with zipline. We left Soneva Kiri with fond memories and extraordinary experiences - don’t miss!

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 at Soneva Kiri

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 where 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 it's name from it's dramatic outlook; gaze out into the horizon while 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 organise an intimate meal anywhere. A picnic by a waterfall, on a private island or anywhere in fact that catches your eye. Every dining experience is fun and oh so romantic.

Benz

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 while deciding which of the 60 flavours of homemade ice cream or sorbets you would like to try.

Family Friendly Facilities

The Den

The Den is a unique bamboo-framed structure built to appear like a gigantic manta ray hovering above the forest. This innovative play area offers a wide range of creative experiences to ensure youngsters are kept fully entertained. Entry is via a drawbridge that leads young guests up a wave of stairs. 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. 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 one are welcome.
