My husband and I stayed at the resort for five days and we loved every minute at Soneva Kiri. The resort is stunning, the service impeccable and the food delicious.
Before we arrived at the resort we were truly impressed by the smooth, comfortable transfer from BKK airport to Soneva Kiri Airport and from there to the resort. Hassle-free traveling all the way.
Our beach villa was stunning, we loved the design, comfort and privacy.
The food was delicious in all of the outlets but "The View" and "Benz" were outstanding. We took part in the "Thai cooking class" with Chef Benz and can highly recommend it. If you plan to eat at Benz make sure that you are really hungry. It's a set menu of 8 or 9 courses and we were full half way through the menu. Breakfast was also fantastic, the location of the restaurant was great and so was the selection of food and beverages.
We read that some guests had problems with mosquitoes but we didn't experience any. The staff makes sure that mosquito repellent liquid is available in all the restaurants, they burn mosquito repellant incenses everywhere: bedroom, bathroom, restaurants, even under the tables.... and the turn down service prepares the mosquito net over your bed. We didn't get bitten once during our stay.
The only excursion we were a little disappointed with was the snorkeling trip. It was a fun day out but the actual snorkeling spot has been exploited. There are hardly any fish and the area is overcrowded with tourists.
Our Friday (Mrs. Note) was very sweet and she was always there for us. She went the extra mile and - together with the entire Soneva Kiri team - really made our stay special.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Remote yet accessible, Soneva Kiri sits on Thailand's fourth largest but least populated island, Koh Kood, in the Gulf of Siam. Surrounded by lush, vibrant tropical vegetation and white beaches, fringed with palm trees, the resort has been tastefully and cleverly designed to complement the landscape and blends seamlessly into the outstanding natural beauty. Soneva Kiri epitomises the Soneva concept of 'intelligent luxury'. Only an hour's flight in the resort's private plane from Bangkok, it feels a million miles from the real world. The sense of tranquillity, seclusion and harmony with nature is second to none. Far away from the beaten track and well-trodden tourist attractions this is Thailand as it used to be thirty or even fifty years ago, genteel and untainted. And also just one hour by boat from the wonders of Cambodia. The 35 pool villa resort is perfect for groups or families, as it provides villas with up to 6 bedrooms. It also has a unique children's den in the form of a manta ray, and a newly launched Intrepid Explorer's Club for the children under 5 years old. It was recently awarded with The Smith Award "Best for Families" from Mr. & Mrs. Smith. ... more less
