Located on one of Thailand’s most pristine islands, noted for its clear waters and sublime white sand beaches, the Soneva Kiri is up there with the world's very finest hotels. It offers an exclusive retreat for the most discerning travellers. Enormous private villas are well spaced out to guarantee true seclusion. They were built using locally-sourced, sustainable timber and all have an open, airy, beachside aesthetic, featuring lots of bare wood and chic furnishings.
Private pools (how did we ever live without them?!), a private butler service and a private airport are the order of the day, not to mention the decadent chocolate room and ice-cream parlour which are all included (the diet starts on Monday…) Dine anywhere you like, including on the beach, at your villa, or even in a remarkable tree-top pod overlooking the island's ancient rainforest. For all water lovers, windsurfing, kayaking and sailing are amongst the many activities to dive into. Bliss from every angle.

Discover what to expect from staying at Soneva Kiri
Uber luxury and exclusivity often go hand in hand with a slight air of pretentiousness, but not at Soneva Kiri. Here, you’re made to feel special as soon as you set foot on their pristine beaches, surrounded by opulence and genuine heartfelt hospitality. Enjoy attention to detail and personalised butler service without anything feeling like it's too much trouble. Their ‘no news, no shoes’ mantra is designed to encourage guests to relax and disconnect from the stresses of everyday life, and your butler is always available to help. The perfect balance - it's a big thumbs up from us.
Food glorious food! When you’re not dining at one of the resort's impressive range of restaurants, serving international cuisine ranging from traditional Thai inspired by locally grown ingredients and seafood caught by local fishermen, to Japanese and Peruvian fusion. Enjoy a customised private dinner in a setting of your choice to celebrate a special occasion. Loosen your belt in the indulgent chocolate room, grab a slice of brie in the cheese deli or cool off in the ice-cream parlour. Soneva Kiri really is a food lover's dream.
Diving, water sports, cooking classes with a master chef, and fishing excursions are amongst the many activities on offer for those able to tear themselves away from their sumptuous villas. The world-renowned Six Senses Spa is also on site for the ultimate wellness and pampering experience. Drop the kids off at The Den, arguably the world's greatest kids club, with a focus of creativity and the environment.
A key philosophy of the Soneva group is the Slowlife (sustainable, local, organic, wellness, learning, inspired, fun, experiences) approach, which is evident throughout in the way they work. Being environmentally aware and responsible is an area close to their hearts, so we are always thrilled when resorts we work with recycle, conserve and preserve as well as grow organic food and buy produce from local farmers and fishermen. Soneva also works with community organisations, including the Plant a Tree Today forest restoration project in Thailand.
