Soneva Kiri is located in the east of Thailand on the remote island of Koh Kood, famed for its tropical rainforest, dramatic waterfalls and traditional village life. Set eitherside of the hill, cliff or beachfront of this one-hundred-and-two-acre location, the resort’s charming, rustic-style guest villas all overlook the beautiful turquoise waters and white-sand beaches of the Gulf of Thailand. Dining venues range from the exciting and unique treetop dining pod and next to a gushing waterfall, to intimate moonlit dinners on a private stretch of beach, with all cuisine made from organic produce and freshly selected from Soneva Kiri's kitchen garden. A collection of exciting activities that make the most of the spectacular location includes snorkelling and scuba-diving, sunset cruising and fishing trips with a local fisherman. For families, the options are equally as varied and include cookery classes at the demonstration kitchen, mother and daughter spa treatments, and father and son fishing adventures. Additionally, there's the recently launched Intrepid Explorers Club, for youngsters up to five years old, which offers age-specific facilities and activities for little ones, including a delightful playroom filled with lots of toys and games. Rustic, laid-back and incredibly chic, Soneva Kiri is an idyllic, peaceful retreat just begging to be discovered.

The Den is a uniquely overground, bamboo-framed structure, built to appear like a gigantic manta ray hovering above the forest, which is an innovative play area, offering a wide range of creative experiences to ensure youngsters are kept fully entertained. Entry to the free-flowing auditorium is via a drawbridge that leads young guests up a wave of stairs. Within The Den are four distinct rooms - the Art Room, the Music Room, the Fashion Room and a Library with catamaran-style netting floor and overstuffed cushions - where activities such as nature printing, playing music with glasses, making things from recycled items and coconut leaf folding take place.

Intrepid Explorers Club is an age-specific club for children from 1 to 5 years old, operating out of the unique and natural space the Eco Den, which comes with its own swimming pool, plenty of shaded areas on the decking for outside play, a green finger garden, a sleep and relaxation room for when they need to recharge the batteries and the main Discovery Room where they can explore. Overseen by a staff of fully qualified carers, Intrepid Explorers Club is just the thing for inquisitive minds and little ones with bags of energy to use up (charges apply).

Chocolate Parlour
Children and adults will revel in Soneva Kiri's exclusive Chocolate Parlour. Delivering chocolate treats in all shapes and sizes, from handmade truffles, cookies, mousse and fondue, to delicious hot chocolate drinks, the parlour is a super-indulgent chocolate sanctuary. The Master Chocolatier will demonstrate how chocolate is produced while inviting children to enjoy a unique hands-on experience.

In addition to the age-specific kids' Clubs and the Chocolate Parlour, Soneva Kiri offers a range of inspiring, family-friendly activities that aim to educate, entertain and promote a bonding experience within the family group. Included in the programme of activities  are father and son fishing trips, mother and daughter spa treatments, family cookery classes, sunset cruises and a private viewing at Cinema Paradiso, including dinner.

In Addition

Quite possibly the most unique way to dine out, Soneva Kiri offers treetop 'dining pods' for guests who might like to experience dining al fresco, high up in the canopy of the trees. Situated sixteen feet off the ground, pods are constructed from a complex frame of woven rattan with food and beverages taken to and from by a waiter via zip-wire. An elevator lift, situated on the forest floor, will transport you to the treetops, where the pod hangs gracefully, with superb panoramic views serving as a backdrop.

Cinema Paradiso plays classical films on a huge outdoor screen, accompanied by cocktails, popcorn and gourmet cuisine.

Excursion wise, Soneva Kiri offers an excellent tailor-made trip to Cambodia's Angkor Wat temple complex (the ancient Khmer capital in Siem Reap and a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Take the hotel's very own private plane and enjoy a two-hour flight to the iconic location, where you can spend as much or as little time as you please exploring this formidable landmark.
