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.

Dear travelchannelpolska Greetings from Soneva Kiri! Thank you for your lovely words about your experience with us. It was such a pleasure to have you in Soneva Kiri, its always so interesting to look at the resort through a professional film crew’s eyes, you notice and highlight things we take for granted, making us appreciate areas/views we consider normal. We are all very excited to see the program once its out. We hope to see you back soon, Chef Benz says she will cook something special for you when you return! Best regards Francisca R Antunes General Manager

Dear camila y It was a pleasure to share your feedback from your recent stay at Soneva Kiri with all the hosts, and as I have said in previous responses all the hosts get immensely motivated when they read such positive feedback. Our Mr and Ms Fridays are an outstanding team and I am delighted your Ms Friday Khun Chompoo made your stay even more memorable. They are also supported by a dedicated team to ensure our guests are taken exceptionally good care of. It is also great to read that the experiences you had met with your expectations from 'start to finish' and it was rewarding to read of your recognition of the environmental and social stewardship focus we have at Soneva Kiri. It is true that in all our approaches to both product and service we never fail to consider the relevance of our actions to the environment and if indeed these reflect our SLOW LIFE culture. As I write this note I am looking out of my office at wonderful blue skies and across the calm bay to our stunning North Beach and can’t stop appreciating the wonders of this beautiful island. I do hope your journey home was comfortable and again thank you for taking the time to review us. Best regards Manjit

Dear SunGoddess911, How very kind of you to take the time to write a review and both I and all the hosts were delighted that you had such a 'complete' stay. I was also very pleased, if I may say so, that you managed to enjoy the healthy, fresh and delicious food while also finding time to indulge in our Chocolate room and Ice Cream parlour! I was so encouraged to note how you recognized the work that the team does in supporting our sustainable approach which is one of the underpinning values of our company. Intelligent luxury coupled with caring and intuitive service is what we strive to achieve at all times and I am pleased we did so for you during your stay. These attributes combined with the environment of the resort gave you a very memorable experience, which we hope will stay with you for many years to come, or until your next visit..... Best regards Manjit

Dear Fernanda S Thank you for joining our long list of Soneva Enthusiasts. It is always exciting to read when guests are able to explore the true depth of ‘Rare Experiences’ and adventures the resort offers and you have painted a wonderful picture whether it was to explore the diverse marine life at Koh Rang National Marine Park, hike to the stunning waterfall or simply the seclusion and luxury of your villa. The creation of our Thai gourmet restaurant, Benz, allowed us to exhibit one of our greatest finds. Discovered by Sonu and Eva, many moons ago in Phang-Nga, chef Khun Benz was our only choice when it came to finding a talented culinary artist to helm this open Thai kitchen, using ingredients grown here on Koh Kood and neighbouring Trat province. Thank you for your kind words particularly toward our hosts at Soneva Kiri. Khun Chompoo & Khun Tida who, I know, will be very happy that they made you stay so memorable and when all is said and done it is the hosts that add to the memories that leave this island as guests return to their homes around the world. Best regards Manjit

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

"We were beachfront villa number 5 and loved everything about this villa."
"All Rooms with Ocean View."
