Koh Kood, Thailand

Why You Will Love It

Soneva Kiri is the trifecta in luxury resorts with lush, wild jungles, pristine beaches, and unparalleled, authentic service. Immerse yourself in this gem hidden amongst Thailand’s least populated island. Perfect for those seeking cultural immersion with a side of relaxation, the resort offers a broad appeal to travelers who come from near and far to experience this environmentally-friendly slice of paradise.

Defining Factor

The outdoors! With verdant jungles on one side and the Gulf of Siam on the other, you’re never without a view. Each of the resort’s villas are situated with views of either the rainforest or the beach and offer private and spacious accommodations, while still leaving modest environmental footprint.

Don't Leave Without

Dining in the treetops! Enjoy a gourmet meal while seated in your own, private bamboo pod amongst the jungle’s trees and overlooking the beautiful beach below. Your drinks and food are sent via zipline to your pod, from your waiter on the ground below. Dinner with a view taken to a whole new level!


The island is teeming with local fishing villages, and the resort provides fresh, authentic food at each of its dining venues.

  • Kruuae Mae Tuk is located in a classic, wooden Thai structure amongst the mangroves and has a “no menu” dining concept. The chef selects each day’s meals based on the fresh ingredients received from the local fisherman
  • So Spirited is perched atop a cliff and is the spot to enjoy an aperitif al fresco
  • The Dining Room serves up Thai and Mediterranean-inspired breakfast and dinner
  • The View is a more modern bistro that uses locally-sourced ingredients prepared with Western cooking techniques. The menu changes daily so you’ll never tire of this casual, yet delicious spot for dinner.
