Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have had a very comfortable stay here, and I am very happy to have spent my Songkran festival here. The butlers and staff are all very attentive, the food quality is also very high, especially the Indian breakfast is delicious. There are also special shows to watch. I believe that next time, I will firmly choose this hotel again. This is a hotel that you want to return to after visiting.

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I came here for our honeymoon last week and could not have been happier with our choice. This resort has it all! Amazing food (seriously, I don't know what our favorite meal was), gorgeous views, comfortable and spacious villas, and the BEST guardian, Fon. Fon was lovely and attended to our every need. We were very impressed by Soneva's emphasis on environmental impact. As a tip, we'd recommend going with the full board meal option. It's worth the expense and eliminates the need to worry about what each meal or drink will cost. It also secured us better locations at the restaurants and remarkable service. The observatory is a must and we can't recommend the cinema enough. There isn't a single negative thing to to say about this resort!

Amazing, surprising, great. Have never visited such a spacious resort. You have to be an extremely fit walking enthusiast without a golf cart. Good that families and couples are separated locally. The restaurants all offer excellent food for every gourmet. Better not to check your weight after your vacation. I would like to emphasize the outstanding friendliness of the staff, whereby I would like to highlight NUI from the reservations department and our personal supervisor FERN. We would love to come back. Hans Robert

Soneva Kiri was excellent. Staff were incredible. Our "guardian" was always there for what ever was needed. She would pop up out of nowhere to help carry out items or make sure we were taken care of. Felt unbelievably spoiled. Food was excellent. Went to the View Restaurant twice. First time was not able to eat all food provided. 2nd time went better prepared, hungry. One of the items was a fish that came with a smoked glass cover. Service people raise the cover in a circular motion letting out the aroma and smoke. I am not a fish eater but ate this. There was a buffet one night. First thought was a buffet for this stay. Food was excellent. Was able to try different foods. Be careful as food here can be quite hot. One of the cooks told me not to take a skewer of chicken/pork as it would be too hot. He cooked up new ones at medium hot still was pretty hot(spicy). Went to a restaurant were a boat takes you there. Food was very good. Not being a fish eater and eating the fish to me says a lot of the food. A different experience as the restaurant is located in a back area. We went to the tree house for dinner. What a unique experience having your waiter zip line in the food. Food was excellent and again they did not skimp on the amount of food given. Cons: Our first impression was that the facilities were not being kept up. Some of the areas do need some upgrading or repairs. Our hut (#1 ) area was huge for two people. Very private. we were in a bay area and unable to view the ocean from there. Unable to comment on South Beach area as went on dives for the days we were present, appeared to be nice.

A solo visit as work related and pleasure. I couldn’t speak higher of both service and facilities. My host Best was amazing and could nt do anything more for me . All the restaurants were of exceptional quality and so diverse and amazing choices . Breakfast was a perfect start then onto South beach for wonderful food then the evening at the View (amazing modern cuisine) or with a Guest chef or at Tuks kitchen(the best Thai food I have ever eaten ) plus loads of other personal choices . The resort was busy but quiet and the team was so happy and smiley , honestly it was perfect . Thank you all at Soneva Kiri I hope to be back soon .

Thailand is a favorite destination of ours, and Soneva Kiri is now our favorite resort there! We flew there from Bangkok International Airport to what is apparently the smallest airport in Thailand. Landing in this bare-bones jungle airfield immediately conjured up feelings of yesteryear air-travel to far flung lands. And being then whisked off to a waiting launch to take us to the resort only added to that feeling. Staff lined up to meet guests on arrival where our butler introduced himself. We were given our own buggies to get around with and so we toured the resort, which turned out to be quite large. It really wasn’t until the third day before we stopped making wrong turns when getting around. They have several restaurants within the resort, as well as one just outside which can be accessed by road or boat. All serve excellent food, with many ingredients home grown. They have an all-you-can-eat vegan chocolate room and ice-cream bar, which I often stopped by at. Most memorable moments for us were a dinner at their restaurant on the mangrove, which we took the boat to just at sunset, and the Treepod Dining where we were lifted above the jungle canopy for a meal overlooking the sea. Our accommodations were gorgeous with our villa having not only its own pool but also a private beach. Nice touches with a Smeg fridge and other cute amenities. The outdoor bathroom was beautifully designed and comfortable. Usually you’d worry about mosquitoes in such a jungle setting in Thailand, but we didn’t notice much of them here. If you’re looking for great selfie moments, this is the place! I couldn’t stop taking pictures of our villa and the way the sunlight played on it. And the sea here is crystal-clear blue. Beachside dining, clifftop dining, and the aforementioned treepod and mangrove dining all lend to amazing moments. I found myself constantly eating so though there’s a nice gym with organized programs of yoga and taichi, I never went to them. Haha. I did use their spa though, which was great. If you’re looking for a totally relaxing luxury getaway destination, this is the place!

Dear Antonyszeto, The review of your recent stay at Soneva Kiri is a great way for all of us to end 2023! I am happy to read that you enjoyed the different restaurants and dining experiences - arriving to Tuks restaurant by boat through the mangroves is one of my favourite experiences at Soneva Kiri! The boat ride at sunset and then enjoying Chef Tuk's special meal is always a good way to end the day. It is good to know that you enjoyed the beach, spa and the crystal clear water of Thailand. I hope that we can welcome you back soon - Chef Chris has created a few new ice cream flavours you should taste....... Kind regards and may 2024 be a wonderul year filled with lovely surprises, including a return visit to Soneva Kiri! Karin

Back to Soneva Kiri for a week before the Christmas holidays to soak up the special vibes of this fantastic place. Don't trust the pictures, reality is different. No bling bling here, no concrete but serious efforts towards sustainability and fantastic software. Outstanding staff (lovely Fon to get a special mention), faboulous food (exceptional head chef Christ Fernandes) and lovely and comfortable villas. Ok they do not correspond to your high-end urban luxury hotel but everything is well maintained. If you don't feel relaxed and pampered here then this type of approach is not meant for you. For all other discerning and experienced travelers please go there at least once. This type of hotel is one of the last "genuine luxury hotels" left in this material world which now focuses on "instagrammable disortions of reality" . Put off your shoes for the stay (yes it does work), check your phone for the essential minimum or turn it off and let the magic of this place take over. The amount of privacy offered is awesome, even with a lot of families around. South beach is one of the best beaches we have seen in Thailand in the 45 years we have been visiting this fantastic country. finally: expensive? yes / worth it: yes every penny see you soon and thank you to the whole team for another awesome stay

I have to mention that I did not stay in the hotel, although I hesitated between Thailand, Soneva Kiri (I would go to Thailand for the first time) and the Maldives (I feel at home here), this time I decided on the Maldives. However, the customer service, professionalism and kindness I experienced from the Soneva Kiri team during email and whats app communication is something I have never experienced, especially towards new potential clients. So I'm in Soneva Kiri for sure on my next trip. And then I will write a full review of the resort. So far, a fantastic rating for the clienting.

We just recently got back from a 3-night stay at Soneva Kiri and our experience was nothing short of magical. Where do I even begin? The whole experience was absolutely incredible from start to finish. Kicking off our holiday with a private plane flight was really unique, and we were absolutely blown away by the stunning location of the resort. We stayed at the Beach Pool Villa Suite, which exceeded all our expectations. Our barefoot guardian, Fon, was really lovely and she helped us craft a perfect itinerary for our stay, filled with many experiences and dining options. One of my favorites was the treepod dining - you definitely have to try this unique experience at the resort! I've never seen anything like that before and dining in a suspended bamboo pod was truly memorable. We really loved the snorkeling trip and the Koh Kood Discovery experience too. When it comes to food, you have a myriad of options to choose from. Being a huge foodie, we tried to experience as many dining options as possible and let me tell you, they did not disappoint! Having dinner at The View at sunset was my absolute favorite and we also really loved the Thai cuisine at Tuk's Kitchen. The staff was another highlight: everyone was really friendly and attentive, and they truly made our stay even more memorable. I really loved that we were always addressed by our names, so it truly felt like being in a home away from home! All in all, I can't recommend this resort enough! Whether you're looking for a honeymoon destination, a romantic getaway, or a family vacation, you have to give this place a try. Trust me, you're going to love it!

This's my 2nd times here, all entire experience at Soneva Kiri was unforgettable. Our barefoot, K. Fern is so amazing. She made everything possible for us. The villa was comfortable, super spacious with breathtaking view .All food is fantastic from the daily breakfast to the dinners at the View. I really love North beach but it has already closed then we had to go to South beach instead.
