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 its 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.

My Dream Villa!

Perth, Australia

One of the dreamiest places I've been to. This resort leaves you feeling 100%. I stayed here with a friend for 5 days and it was definitely not long enough. What a magical resort! It has everything you need from relaxation by your villa pool, massages to snorkelling, sunset cruises, waterfall explorations, stand up paddle boarding, stargazing, treetop dining, and so much more. We loved every minute of our stay. We stayed in the 4 bed residence (villa 18 to be exact) which had the best views over the beach. At low tide you could walk further out and watch the sunset over the resort which was so beautiful. We had our own waterslide which we used every single day. So much fun for kids and adults! The villa was so beautifully designed into the natural surrounds with the most impressive outdoor bathroom. The bed was quite possibly the most comfortable I've ever slept in. At your villa you will find your very own buggy that you can drive around the resort, which we absolutely loved. It allowed us to get up and go whenever we wanted. And if you don't feel like driving, your lovely host will be there promptly to escort you wherever you want to go. There were so many amazing dining options, all with beautiful views and unique experiences. We loved the high tea in the treetops. Having our food delivered via a zip line was so incredible. The view over the ocean as you dine amongst the trees was so peaceful. And Soneva always know how to do food. They cater to every dietary need. As a vegan they always had something delicious for me to enjoy. The chef would personally create meals for me if the menu didn't have an option that I wanted. Each day we headed to the pier just a short buggy ride away, took the Soneva boat over to North beach for lunch, for stand up paddle boarding, for some mermaid time relaxing in the ocean hammocks. This was the most relaxing moment of my trip. Imagine laying in a hammock with the water just covering you enough to keep you cool, while the most gentle waves sway you back and forth. It's like being rocked like a baby. It was so soothing and I could have spent my entire day in that hammock. This spot also has badminton, table tennis, kayaks, board games, skim boards, swings and so much more. We spent many days relaxing and exploring here with the beautiful white sand and turquoise water views. Some other highlights were the sunset cruise. Thailand always has such lovely sunsets, so it was very relaxing to slow down and cruise around the island enjoying some champagne. Overall I can not fault this resort at all. They really know what they are doing and set a standard for all luxury resorts that is hard to compete with. Their sustainability initiatives alone put them well ahead of any other place I've been to. I highly recommend a stay here and I know you won't be disappointed.

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, 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.

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