5-Star X-Factors

This is Thailand as it used to be - untamed jungle and pristine beaches with vast villas and superb service

Soneva Kiri

The island of Koh Kood is Thailand's least populated island and far away from the tourist trail, 80 km off the Thai mainland. Easily accessible from Bangkok, staying here allows you to experience Thailand as it used to be.

Koh Kood is Thailand's fourth largest island, but it remains remarkably undeveloped. Untouched slopes, wild interiors and immaculate beaches compose its raw glamour. The isle's charms inspired the rustic-chic design of the resort, sustainably crafted with recycled wood like the poles that bring to mind the stilts of the local fishing villages.

With more than twenty of the largest resort villas in the world, and eleven vast private residences, this is a 5-star luxury resort with a difference. Located on the idyllic beach or sunny slopes in the rainforest, all have stunning infinity pools, chic furnishings, personal electric buggies to get around the resort and impeccable service courtesy of Mr./Ms. Friday private butlers.

Highlights include the open air Cinema Paradiso, Benz’ mangrove restaurant, the Chocolate and Ice cream parlour, the Observatory, The Den and the spectacular Treetop Dining Pod as well as beautiful North Beach which is regarded as one of the best private beaches in Thailand. Now that the construction of the new beach bar is complete, there can be no denying that Soneva Kiri's position as CNN's number one in the list of "World's most beautiful beachfront hotels" is thoroughly well deserved.

Soneva Kiri has also recently been awarded top spot in Conde Nast Traveller UK's 'Best Family Hotel in the World' list, plus third place in the World's Best Beach Hotel category in the 2017 AFAR Traveller's Choice Awards.

We are visiting Soneva Kiri in the autumn with a full review coming soon.
