Soneva Kiri is an elegant tropical paradise bordered by white sand beaches, crystal blue waters and the lush jungle. Hidden on Kood Island in the Gulf of Thailand, this Six Senses resort delights guests with a mix of adventurous excursions, peaceful suites and unmatched luxury.
Several room options are available at the Soneva Kiri, from quiet suites up to stately private homes. Each of the impressive suites is appointed with a spacious open-plan deck, a dedicated butler, outdoor shower and bathtub, private swimming pool and a personal motorized golf cart for navigating the sprawling resort. Accents of bamboo and rich woods compliment the airy linens and mosquito netting, while the deck’s colorful cushions are ideal for lounging in the tropical breezes.
Beach Villas are available in many floorplans that include an additional spa or library area. The stunning Hill and Cliff Villas also include open-air terraces throughout the suite, creating more opportunity to enjoy the exotic sunshine. For premium pampering, the Junior Beach Retreat and Private Beach Reserve are amazing options. Both include extra bedrooms and entertainment areas plus a private gym and spa area. The Private Beach Reserve provides a touch of tropical whimsy with a waterslide to the pool and separate treehouse suite. “Green” guests may prefer to stay in the exclusive Eco Villa, a completely self-sustaining, LEED-certified suite with rainwater harvesting and biological filtration systems, plus a natural pool which is kept clean by the plants who share the water.
The resort’s island location is ideal for amazing watersports. Sail a Catamaran to smaller nearby islands for a mid-day picnic, or venture forth with PADI instructors and dive through the impressive coral formations. Wakeboarding, water skiing and fishing are also available on the water. After a day of excitement, find relaxation on the beach in your own reserved beach chair or luxuriate in the spa. In the spa, local and international therapists rise to the challenge of providing exceptional service by joining a variety of techniques with top-notch skin and body products. When night falls, take in a classic film at “mother Nature’s amphitheatre,” the Cinema Paradiso, or gaze into the sky at the resort’s observatory, complete with a telescope powerful enough to view the planet Saturn.
With the wide range of exciting activities and well-appointed accommodations it’s no wonder that Soneva Kiri was named to Conde Nast’s 2010 Hot List of hotels. Like the activities, the dining options at the resort are endless with 12 options for cuisine and cocktails. In-room dining is available 24 hours a day, and for guests wishing to indulge their sweet tooth the decadent chocolate room and ice cream parlor is open day and night. Dine at Benz’s, named for accomplished Thai chef Khun Benz, and taste her amazing creations using ingredients sourced from Kood and other local islands. Find yourself in a cocoon-like pod at Tree Pod, with service provided by a “flying” waiter. Sample a selection from over 500 labels in the subterranean wine cellar, climate controlled in a grotto-like cave. Close your day in paradise with a beachside barbecue of fresh seafood over an open flame, taking in the starry night and soft sounds of the sea.Request Information
