Unparalleled tropical luxury meets eco-friendly design on Thailand’s unspoiled Koh Kood Island

The Setting

When stepping off the speedboat that brings you to Soneva Kiri on Koh Kood, Thailand’s 4th largest, but least populated island, be sure to kick off your shoes, savor the talcum powdery sand and clear your mind. That is, after all,  Soneva Kiri’s mantra, “no news, no shoes.” To say this tropical resort is Kind paradise would be an understatement. Soneva has been celebrating 20 sustainable years while mitigating their carbon footprint with a target of 100 percent renewable energy by 2021. They also boast a 100 percent self-sufficient water supply, an art program using recycled waste glass materials, an on-site garden nurtured with compost created from the resort’s food waste supplying all the produce, and their own Soneva Foundation supports the development of projects that have a positive environmental, social, and economic impact. Kind heaven is more like it. 

Sleep and Sanctuary

Soneva Kiri’s dwellings are spaced throughout the property in 35 unique villas, some mere steps from powdery sand beach or perched for breathtaking views. Let’s be honest, these aren’t so much villas as they are sprawling masterpieces of sustainable design. Ranging from one-bedroom charmers to six-bedroom reserves, each offers a large private pool, immaculate outdoor bathrooms with spa tubs, beds with billowing mosquito nets, and ample deck space for yoga. Most importantly, each villa is constructed from sustainable woods. Soneva even goes as far as to visit suppliers to know first-hand how they are planted and harvested. 

Eat. Pray. Eat.

One-of-a-kind dining experiences will become routine on your stay at Soneva Kiri and local is their core value, only growing their own produce and buying from local farmers and fishermen. Your culinary highlight will be Benz’s. Helmed by respected chef Khun Benz, Benz's is a lantern-lit traditional Thai restaurant on stilts reached via a speedboat through the mangroves. There’s also The View, a stunning dinner-only outdoor space offering modern European fine dining with an Asian twist. The Dining Room, perched up high on the rocky cliffs and So Spirited, a poolside outpost with stunning sea views, are your enviable all-day-dining spots. Toss in a wine cellar boasting mostly organic wines, an ice cream parlor and a glass vault offering charcuterie and cheeses from around the world for good measure. Private destination and in-villa dining (treepod dining is a must, too) are available to you and all dietary restrictions or requirements can easily be accommodated. 

  • Benz’s - Savor traditional Thai (dinner only) at this “no-menu” concept offering a vast selection of dishes inspired by ingredients grown on Koh Kood and by the local sea’s bounty. 
  • The View - is only open for dinner and offers modern Europen fine dining with an Asian twist amid spectacular vistas. 
  • The Dining Room - This handsome restaurant perched on the rocky cliffs is open for breakfast and dinner and features weekly Asian street food and Mediterranean buffets. Start your day with organic mushrooms on toast or a morning salad with papaya, fig, avocado and coconut milk. 
  • So Spirited - Perched on a cliff poolside, you’ll find tapas and libations for lunch and dinner with vistas for days. Savor sweet juices from local Thai fruits, snack on late-afternoon bites like wild mushroom croquettes, and enjoy a wide range of cocktails and mocktails to cool off after a day in the sun.
The Art of De-stressing

Embark on a sensory journey without having to leave the resort at Six Senses Spa. Indulge in an array of locally-inspired treatments like Thai herbal baths and mud massages, all using traditional herbs and oils. The spa is also known for its wellness screenings, which is a non-invasive reading of your body’s composition and biomarkers. 

Free mind, body and soul with private Hatha yoga sessions focusing on gentle movement and effortless flow. You’ll be reaping all the benefits of stress-free living with improved flexibility and a powerful body from this practice as you’re also guided through meditative breathing practices. Om

What could be more relaxing than a day out on the surrounding pristine waters? Soneva Kiri offers a range of complimentary non-motorized water sports including kayaking, paddleboarding, and hobie cats.  

For the pint-sized Kind Travelers, Soneva offers a truly unique experience in their giant bamboo Eco Den. Suspended in the treetops, the den is a space dedicated to learning, excitement and meaningful experiences for kids five and up.

Villa Suites 

The fabulous one bedroom Bayview Pool Villa Suite is built of sustainable woods and invites you to experience life in the trees. Awaken in the soft organic cotton sheets of your master bedroom’s pillow-topped king-size bed surrounded by flowing mosquito nets. Gaze at the Thai jungle’s primeval artistry in comfort. Then, head to one of your elevated decks and pavilions or descend to your spacious private pool area. Cushioned daybeds and sun loungers await, along with spectacular sea views or the cool indulgence of a relaxing swim in forested surrounds.

The one bedroom Beach pool Villa Suite boasts direct beach access where you can plunge into white sand or sink into one of the shaded cushioned daybeds and sun loungers around your private freeform swimming pool and beachside gardens. Bathe and shower by starlight in your outdoor bathroom, a jungle hideaway of elephant ear palms and other lush green drapings. Then slip between the organic cotton sheets on the pillow-topped (chosen from pillow menu) king-sized bed of your sea-facing luxury master bedroom.

The one-bedroom Sunset View Ocean Suite is your haven perched on high. Explore its ins and outs, strolling from the master bedroom and its magnificent sea views to the walk-through dressing area, outdoor garden bathroom, living room pavilion or lower level pool. Your environmentally-friendly electric buggy awaits, saving you the hikes that led to your perch’s discovery. 

Villa Retreats 

The two-bedroom Sunset Ocean Pool Retreat will inspire visions of grandeur. Awake in your luxurious master bedroom suite, then descend to the dining area for breakfast in the intimacy of the retreat. Continue onwards to the entertainment pavilion and kick back with a leisurely game or two, work out in your own gym, or perhaps take a dip in your half-moon pool after treatments on your own private spa deck.

The two-bedroom Junior Beach Pool Retreat is just steps from the beach and trust us, there is nothing junior about this villa. You have a seperate outdoor spa area, private pool, outdoor bathroom with walk in tub and dining area, to boot. Add an upstairs TV lounge with awesome views and lush master suite and bedroom, both with dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows. 

Villa Reserves 

The three-bedroom Beach Pool Reserve is a rustic-chic reserve perfect for families, with a large master bedroom, a second bedroom, separate living room with a dining deck under the stars and the “tree house” for children – complete with bunk beds, its own shower, dressing area and a private deck from where the slide goes down to the pool. Bask in the large garden with private beach area - perfect to while away lazy afternoons.

The four-bedroom Sunset Ocean View Pool Reserve will knock your socks off. The villa’s rustic-chic escape stretches generously across the island’s tropical hillside in an endless sprawl of pavilions, decks, daybeds and sun loungers. Feast together around the outdoor dining table with family or newly made friends. All this with views that will take your breath away. The four-bedroom Bayview Pool Reserve offers you the same luxuries i.e. outdoor shower and steam room, private gym, children’s treehouse, etc with the added bonus of breathtaking bay views and your own personal wine cellar.

The five-bedroom Sunset Ocean View Pool Reserve floats over the most spectacular hillside stretch. Private and protected, this luxurious playground shelters you atop jungle slopes. Wake up in the sea-facing master bedroom or the whimsically-inspired treehouse. Bathe and shower by starlight in garden bathrooms, a contained rainforest for sensuality and serenity. Lounge on terraces, and decks amidst the jungle peaks. While the five-bedroom Bayview Pool Reserve takes your breath away with its bay views, naturally. 

The sprawling castle in the sand, otherwise known as the five-bedroom Beach Pool Reserve, towers over the sea and is embraced by jungle. The master bedroom and three additional bedrooms all feature outdoor bathrooms so you can soak in the starlight or shower in the sun’s rays. The fifth bedroom is a treehouse with bunk beds and a slide into the swimming pool. Treat your body like a temple with your personal gym overlooking the blue or the private spa deck, perfect for meditative and healing treatments.

Last but certainly not least, the six-bedroom Ocean View Pool Reserve is hidden in the privacy of the trees, so you can snuggle in the sea-facing master bedroom or bathe and shower by starlight in open-air bathrooms. Find your spot in this sustainable escape that stretches over the hilltops. Other luxuries include the gargantuan swimming pool with its own water slide, the gym, steam room, game room, outdoor dining table or the oversized cushions of an enormous day bed overlooking the water.

HOW TO GET THERE

110 Moo 4, Koh Kood Sub-District, Koh Kood District, Trat 23000, Thailand

By Plane
  • To reach Soneva Kiri from Bangkok (approx 200 mi) guests can take the resort’s private plane from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) to Koh Mai Si (Soneva Kiri’s Airport Island), with a flight time of 1 hour and 15 minutes. Then a 5 minute luxury speedboat transfer will take guests to Soneva Kiri’s jetty. Flights to Soneva Kiri operate only during the day (sunrise to sunset). The first flight from Bangkok is at 6AM and the last is around 3:40PM. The last flight from Koh Mai Si to Bangkok is at 5:30PM. There are six charter routes a day. A flight can be booked for you in accordance with your arrival flight into Bangkok. There are only 8 seats per flight. It is recommended that guests check the availability of the domestic transfer before confirming international flights. A buffer of at least 120 minutes should be kept between the arrival of international flights to Bangkok and the departure time of the flight to Soneva Kiri. 

  • Speedboat transfer from the Cambodian border: Guests can travel directly from the Yaem Border Checkpoint (also known as the Ban Hat Lek Border in Thai) to Soneva Kiri by speedboat. The speedboat ride is between 60 to 80 minutes long depending on sea conditions. The cost of this transfer is THB 30,000 nett per way. The maximum capacity on the speedboat is 18 persons.

By Automobile

Given Soneva Kiri’s island location, skip hiring a car and driving from Bangkok as you’ll need to make the final hop to the hotel by boat. Buses run from Bangkok’s Ekamai eastern terminal to Trat, where you can pick up taxis to the pier to catch the boat to Koh Kood, but be prepared, journey time is around 6 hours.
