  • Superbly located in unspoilt natural beauty where ancient rainforest and jungle meets turquoise blue water and pristine beaches

From the moment that you arrive you will feel at home with a host of surprises on each corner to enlighten, entertain and energise. Or simply have the ultimate luxury of doing absolutely nothing – sit back and embrace a slower pace of life in a wonderland of peace and tranquility.


Fill your sun-kissed days with invigorating pursuits from sunrise breakfast at your villa or on top of trees, morning yoga, snorkelling with a marine biologist to world-class diving just beyond. Cool down with water sports such as sailing, windsurfing, and kayaking, pack a picnic and discover the island or trek through the jungle. As the day winds down, sip champagne on a sunset cruise, wine taste barefoot, or count Saturn’s rings from the observatory. Watch the stars on and off the big screen at the onsite Cinema Paradiso, a jungle-enshrouded auditorium of cascading cushions over the waters of the lagoon.

Drive your own electric buggy or your own bicycle to make getting around the resort easier. That might be to drop off the children into their own private fantasy world overseen by experienced child-minders, to visit the Treepod for out-of-this-world dining. Treat yourself to locally inspired treatments and healing therapies of Asia and beyond including mud massages, Thai herbal baths, silk facials, warm oils of Ayurveda and a rich selection of wellness rituals.

Slowlife and sustainability are both key elements of the philosophy at Soneva, providing a complete and unique experience while improving the lives of the local communities. The group grows organic, uses local produce, encourages wellness learning and inspires fun experiences in a harmonious, laid-back environment. Soneva also works with community organisations worldwide, including the Plant a Tree Today forest restoration project in Thailand.


Benefitting from an abundance of natural light, lush foliage and picturesque views, the 1 to 6-bedroom villas comprise detached living areas joined by walkways offering privacy, comfort and space. All villas come complete with fantastic outdoor living space; vast gardens, infinity-edged swimming pools and terraces with sun loungers.

Sumptuous accommodation tastefully decorated with rustic charm includes an elegant master bedroom suite, guest suites, prestigious dining areas, comfortable seating and relaxation corners, steam room, spa suite, gym, pool with water slide, fully-fitted ultramodern kitchens, and spacious indoor and outdoor rustic bathrooms. Bose sound systems are installed throughout, WiFi and state-of-the-art technology provides excellent communications and satellite TV.

The larger residences include: a wine cellar, library, gym, children’s playroom and water slide.

What’s more, residences can be customised to suit individual family requirements with additional facilities and amenities from enlarged swimming pools, further bedrooms and widened entertainment decks, to a private spa suite, a steam bath/sauna, a kitchen, sunken dining decks and a private observatory.


Double rooms from £619.33 ($905) including accommodation with butler service, buffet breakfast, and free chocolate and ice-cream.

(Rates exclude tax at 21.7%).



Dine in a suspended Treepod, on a private beach, on a cliff, next to waterfalls or amidst mangroves - whatever your mood, you can be sure that the settings will be as memorable and exceptional as the cuisine itself.

Experienced chefs prepare mouth-watering, healthy and balanced dishes using only the freshest produce, much of which is grown in Soneva's own organic fruit and vegetable gardens.

The Treepod Dining experience invites you to take fine dining to new heights. Climb high up into a leafy canopy set amidst tropical rainforest and gaze out across the shoreline as you savour gourmet delights and your chosen wines, delivered via the zip-line acrobatics of your personal waiter.

Perched atop rocky cliffs and sheltered amidst verdant tree canopy is the Dining Room, dine cliffside at The View and visit Benz's, an open-air lantern-lit eatery on stilts.

Gaze at the ocean as you catch the delicious drips from your choice of over sixty constantly changing flavours of homemade ice creams and sorbets at So Chilled, no ordinary pool bar.

Inside the insanely cool So Chocoholic, indulge in every child’s dream of never-ending chocolate. Freshly made passion fruit, honey and salted caramel infused truffles line up alongside warm pots of creamy mousse and luscious fondue.

Your Soneva experience begins the moment you disembark at Bangkok International Airport, where you will be greeted by Soneva Kiri’s dedicated airport representative. You will then be escorted through to VIP fast track immigration and assisted in luggage collection, before being collected and taken to a private airstrip approximately 55 minutes away.

There, the Soneva Kiri private plane awaits you for the 50 minute trip to their private airport at Koh Mai Si, a two minute speedboat ride away from Soneva Kiri.

Situated on the east coast of Thailand in the Koh Chang Marine National Park, Koh Kood is Thailand’s fourth largest island.

Renowned for its pure waterfalls, crystal clear waters and traditional village life, Koh Kood lies within the protected waters of the Gulf of Thailand and features spectacular landscapes and lush tropical rainforests fringed with white sandy beaches, leading into turquoise waters and unspoiled coral reefs beyond.

This luxury resort is a minute's walk from the Gulf of Thailand and 11 km from Laem Sok Pier.
