GEO Information

Soneva Kiri is located on the remote island of Koh Kood, nestled by a serene and breathtakingly beautiful bay, off the east coast of Thailand. Koh Kood is the fourth largest island in Thailand, but one of the least developed. The tropical rainforests, breathtaking waterfalls and traditional village life combine with emerald waters and white sandy beaches to take guests back to the remote and untouched Thailand of time passed.

From Bangkok's International Airport, the resort's private airport can be reached within 80 minutes by Soneva Kiri's private 8-seater Cessna Grand Caravan Plane, followed by a 2km speedboat ride to the resort itself.

Atoll Paradise will ensure you transfer and all logistics are arranged upon booking.

The emphasis on local, fresh, organic produce is extended from the onsite lovingly tended gardens, to the micro herb infusions in the inventive cocktail menu. Dedicated world class food and wine experts ensure that the latest haute cuisine fashions and innovations, the most select new and old world wines, and absolutely faultless table service is delivered at all times, whether it be at one of the 13 dining and bar venues, in the privacy of your Villa, or under the stars at a romantic bespoke dinner for two. For those in search of a gastronomical wonderland and excitement, Soneva Kiri dining can be romantic, intimate, private and unique, in all ways possible.

    Dining Room

    Enjoy sumptuous Thai or Mediterranean cuisine served in a relaxed Thai style ‘Kantoke' seating - luxurious day beds and majestic water side setting with spectacular views. The uniquely-styled Cooking Hut features an expansive wood-fired rock oven, hot and cold smoke oven, and tandoor, ensuring an unforgettable gastronomic experience.

    Treepod Dining

    A unique dining experience, 16 feet elevated into the air, food courses are served by a flying waiter - harnessed to a zip line - at your service. The Treepod Dining, engineered with a rigid frame swathed in woven rattan, has an open panorama window. Up to four diners board the pod, and are then elevated to the lofty height by a system of safety winches. Unlike the other form of first class dining up in the air, this experience enjoys the ultimate exclusivity, and very little turbulence.

    So Spirited

    Situated atop a cliff overlooking the rain forest and sea beyond with unforgettable sunsets, sit back and enjoy pre dinner drinks, signature cocktails and a wide selection of wines and spirits.

    The View

    Soneva Kiri's award winning fine dining restaurant, serving contemporary Thai inspired fare, enhanced by organic, locally grown fresh produce, with a menu updated daily. The resident sommelier will assist with wine pairing to create the ideal marriage of flavors, scents and textures.

    So Spiritual

    A brown and white cliff top bar venue dedicated to world class service and a breathtaking selection of blended cocktails and creative concoctions or any refreshment imaginable. With a dramatic setting overlooking across the lagoon towards an inhabited island and spectacular sunset views, it surely is a perfect spot of pre- and post-dinner drinks.

    Benz’s

    Named after the award winning chef, Khun Benz, who has been gaining much acclaim over the past decade, this atmospheric Thai Pavilion amongst the mangroves is the place to dine on succulent sea food and Thai dishes presented in truest form of slow food. The cuisine features ingredients exclusively sourced locally. Located just off-property, arrival is by a splendid Aquasense motorboat from the Dragon Jetty.

    The Beach

    An atmospheric excursion via buggy leads to this astonishing remote beach setting with a marvelous sunken seating area, where wood fired and tandoori ovens create tempting distractions from the stunning sand and sea. From mid-morning, enjoy snacks and drinks, plus creative sandwiches and wraps, all the way through to fun themed dinners.

    Cinema Paradisio

    Snack under the stars while watching the other kind of stars on-screen at the private screening ‘room' on a reservoir where classic and contemporary films are accompanied by gourmet comfort foods off a fun American-style menu of miniature fish burgers, homemade popcorn, melt in your mouth chocolates and creative cocktails.

    Destination Dining

    Design your dream menu with the executive chef, select sips from our 4500 bottle subterranean wine cellar and enjoy it all in romantic privacy wherever your imagination takes you across our tropical property or the resort will deliver you by speedboat to their favourite deserted beach.

    In-Villa Dining

    From early morning until 2 a.m., your edible whim is the kitchen's command. Guests have been known to joke that the extensive in-villa dining menu is thicker than a telephone book (remember those?) but think of it as merely a reference guide to inspire your appetite's desires.

  • Activities & Recreation

    In terms of ‘things to do' Soneva Kiri goes further than providing the most spectacular seaside resort facilities and ambiance imaginable, in one of the most stunning location in Thailand - it aims to please a myriad of interests and tastes in a truly inspired fashion.

    The ‘slow life' and ‘no news, no shoes' mantras symbolize an approach to leisure that celebrates surroundings, the unique opportunity to slow down and experience something new, and rediscover the wonder of life at a different pace.

    Of course, if all you want to do is sit at the beach bar and sip cocktails, this will be encouraged, and rest assured the cocktails will be mixed with love, and include artisan local ingredients to keep you guessing. But if there were ever a place where you will feel compelled to try something new, it is here, as every activity offered is packaged in an enticing, in a unique and creative way, from the cinema set up in a natural amphitheatre screening art house and recently released features, to the fantastical Tree House Dining, fully equipped PADI dive center, nearby island hopping picnics and excursions, or evening star gazing and astronomy classes.

    Soneva Kiri will thrill mind, body and soul, old or young.
