Koh Kood is Thailand as it was years ago. Untamed jungle, pristine beaches, fishermen going about their business. Ancient Siam, at peace with itself. Soneva Kiri by Six Senses is proof that Thailand will never get old. The resort’s organic type of luxury that seems to just grow up out of the ground.
This “six star” eco-resort with 24 villas and 11 private residences is dream location, specialy with its main atraction – the 16ft suspended tree dining pod, Soneva Kiri’s exclusive eating experience. Robinson Crusoe dining pods are perched in the trees above the mangroves like nests, giving diners a bird’s-eye view of white sands and sunsets. Then there’s the Den, a hut-like structure where younger guests are entertained and supervised while their parents enjoy some adult time. Other highlight of this gem are state-of-the-art Observatory, the open air Cinema Paradiso, Benz’ mangrove restaurant and the Chocolate and Ice cream parlour.
If you’re interested to indulge authentic Thai experiences, you should notice that there’re no roads. That means ou’re flown in the resort’s private plane from Bangkok’s international airport to its private airstrip, from which point you are taken to the resort via speedboat and then driven to your villa. Rates range from around $1,400 a night to $9,500 for the six bedroom villa.
