Remote but accessible aptly describes the Thai island of Kood, on which Soneva Kiri is set amidst the lush tropical rainforest, off the south-east coast of the Gulf of Siam. International guests are personally met on arrival at Bangkok’s airport and transferred to the resort’s own airplane for the one-hour flight to the Soneva Kiri airfield. From the air, the beauty of untouched Thailand and Koh Kood, with its white sandy beaches is immediately evident.
Soneva Kiri- Treepod Dining
Dining at Soneva Kiri by Six Senses is anything but ordinary and has now been taken to new heights, with the recently launched Treepod Dining experience. The Treepod is situated at one of the best vantage points the resort offers; a few yards along the coastal path from the resort’s main facilities on the west facing side of the island. Guests board the rattan, bird’s nest at ground level and are taken to new heights. With sumptuous, cushioned seating for up to four diners, guests fasten their leather seatbelts and are gently hoisted 16 feet into the tall, native massang trees.
Soneva Kiri by Six Senses
Soneva Kiri is set on a lush tropical island off the south-east coast of the Gulf of Thailand. International guests are met and escorted to the resort’s own airplane for the one-hour flight from Bangkok to the private airfield, then a five-minute powerboat trip. Guests travel in their personal electric buggy to one of the 29 oversized pool villas on the beachfront or hillside and within the resort. There is also an innovative Eco Villa.
Dining includes menus created by 3-Michelin-Star Chef Jaume, and authentic Thai cuisine from Khun Benz. There is a tree-top dining pod and a well-stocked wine cellar, an ice-cream parlor and chocolate room. Brown and White bars offer alternative drinks locations.
