Discover the ultimate family getaway at Soneva Kiri resort in Kood Island
Twenty years ago, Sonu and Eva Shivdasani pioneered the concept of barefoot luxury on their private island resort, Soneva Fushi in the Maldives. It was a fabulous idea: exemplary service in beautiful surroundings, with a focus on sustainable yet ultra-luxurious accommodation.
Two decades on, the resort still operates on this Robinson Crusoe ethos. Returning guests expect – and nd – luxurious simplicity and intuitive service, facilitated by Mr and Ms Friday butlers.
Unforgettable, authentic Thai experiences Soneva Kiri is Soneva’s Thai based award winning property and is located on Koh Kood – just one hour by private plane southeast of Bangkok. It offers an unrivalled combination of luxury, sustainability, authentic Thai experiences and mouthwatering organic food. The resort’s 36 vast pool villas (ranging in size from one to six bedrooms), all overlook the Gulf of Thailand.
Highlights include the open air Cinema Paradiso (which screens modern and classic movies), an Observatory, some of the best beaches in Thailand, and spectacular dining options. The complimentary chocolate and ice cream parlours are also popular favourites!
A giant moulded bamboo playground shaped like a manta ray and hanging high in the treetops, Soneva Kiri’s Children’s Den is dedicated to learning, to excitement, and to meaningful experiences. Professional childminders teach the younger Soneva guests how to play Thai instruments, and unleash their creative talents with painting, music, and the visual arts. A special programme is also offered speci cally for children aged one to ve years old at Soneva’s ‘Eco Den’.
