Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Remote yet accessible, Soneva Kiri sits on Thailand's fourth largest but least populated island, Koh Kood, in the Gulf of Siam. Surrounded by lush, vibrant tropical vegetation and white beaches, fringed with palm trees, the resort has been tastefully and cleverly designed to complement the landscape and blends seamlessly into the outstanding natural beauty. Soneva Kiri epitomises the Soneva concept of 'intelligent luxury'. Only an hour's flight in the resort's private plane from Bangkok, it feels a million miles from the real world. The sense of tranquillity, seclusion and harmony with nature is second to none. Far away from the beaten track and well-trodden tourist attractions this is Thailand as it used to be thirty or even fifty years ago, genteel and untainted. And also just one hour by boat from the wonders of Cambodia. The 35 pool villa resort is perfect for groups or families, as it provides villas with up to 6 bedrooms. It also has a unique children's den in the form of a manta ray, and a newly launched Intrepid Explorer's Club for the children under 5 years old. It was recently awarded with The Smith Award "Best for Families" from Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Soneva Kiri offered an experience not many can compete with. During our family vacation the paradise grew more and more into my heart. I decided to visit Soneva Kiri because I have been to Soneva Fushi in the Maldives already and loved it. You feel the life of luxury from the

We had the pleasure of staying at Soneva Kiri over Christmas this year and we are already planning our return trip in 2019. The private plane transfer to the resort was scenic and so comfortable. Our 5 bedroom villa was hands down the most spacious, well appointed, gorgeous

I remember coming here years back...maybe 8? Nothing has changed. Still beautiful. Staff are still nice. The resort is still a hidden gem away from the hustling cities. Glad to be back to recharge my batteries. Even if it’s for a weekend getaway.

Dear moshimoshi80 Greetings from Soneva Kiri. Thank you for your lovely comments about your stay, means a lot to us that you have found our resort as beautiful as it was 8 years ago. It is island life as it was 40 years ago, surrounded by jungle, perfect for a Soneva. We are adding new dining areas, new beach facilities but will keep the same concept as that is the core of who we are as a company. We hope to see you soon! Happy 2019! Best regards Francisca R. Antunes

This was my third time back at Soneva Kiri and I have to say it was my favourite out of the three trips. We stayed in a sprawling cliff top, five bedroom villa with a water slide with views out across the ocean. The staff were all so friendly, warm and helpful, it was nice to

Dear Alex T Greetings from Soneva Kiri. Thank you for your lovely comments. The 5 bedroom villa is pretty special, has an incredible view and it is like a home away from home. Koh Raet is magical, we are looking into new sites for snorkeling, hopefully on your next visit you will see some new wondrous things. Chef David and team are masters at creating ice-creams that mix flavours that are at first glance weird combinations but then taste amazing. We are adding new flavours every month, in combination with our Festival of Colours. We hope to see you soon on your 4th visit. May you and your loved ones have a great festive season and a fantastic new year. Warm regards Francisca R. Antunes

Dear khebbs, All Inclusive package is definitely recommended as it allows you to choose from a myriad of daily dining options available in the resort. All resort restaurants are covered under All Inclusive package including Khun Benz Restaurant. There are no additional charges for using Ice Cream Parlour and Chocolate Room. Please feel free to write to us at Soneva Reservation and the team will be delighted to send across all the details. Best regards, Francisca Antunes

Food choices are extensive and there are enough private dining experiences so that dining should not be remotely a concern. If you are looking for nightlife though 10 days would be too long in my opinion. Maybe consider a couple of nights in Bangkok instead? We really enjoyed the street markets, temples, floating markets and shows in Bangkok as a family.

Dear merlamer Greetings from Soneva Kiri. The way the resort was designed, the level of privacy is entirely up to our guests. There is so much space between the villas, our beach has so many secluded spots and with some very creative dining areas, you can decide how much solitude you want. Hope this helps Best regards Francisca Antunes Soneva Kiri

"Check the floorplans on the website before booking a room but the beach view villas certainly offer space, views and luxurious amenities."
"We were beachfront villa number 5 and loved everything about this villa."
