Soneva Kiri is located on Koh Kood, a remote island situated on the East coast of Thailand, known for its pure waterfalls, crystal clear waters and traditional village life. Flights from Bangkok’s Don Muang Domestic Airport to Soneva Kiri Airport take 90 minutes by private plane, and from there it is just 5 minutes by speedboat to the resort’s arrival pier.
Soneva Kiri is the latest Soneva, offering Intelligent Luxury of the highest international standard in a remote environment that nurtures the indigenous feel in design, architecture and service.
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 past. Soneva Kiri is developed with the principles of ecologically sustainable design and materials selection, and with construction methods adapted to protect the environment. Personal electric buggies, together with bicycles are the mode of transport within the resort. The simple, yet sophisticated villas are enhanced by continually embracing innovations that result in the creation of unique experiences.
Soneva Kiri is part of the Soneva Group, a world leading sustainable luxury resort operator. The Soneva Group is also made up of Soneva Fushi in the Maldives. Soneva in Aqua, a new yacht experience, will be launched in the Maldives in 2014. The Soneva Group came into being following the decision by Sonu Shivdasani, the founder of Six Senses Resorts & Spas, to sell the Six Senses and Evason branded resorts in February 2012.
