We went here for the first week of our honeymoon. Overall, the resort was exactly right - a mixture of the exotic, the secluded and the ambient, supported by a diverse range of experiences and activities. The arrival and departure procedures were smooth and very comfortable. The villas were stunning, so it was quite tempting to spend considerable time 'at home'. The 'Friday' attendants very attentive and helpful. Foodwise, the diversity is impressive - indeed, we were overloaded with choice at every meal and in between meals (the ice creams and the chocolate venues, as well as the treetop dining, were fun additions). In particular, we loved the Khun Benz restaurant - the ambience and the food. The only quibbles would be (i) that in trying to provide such a diverse array of exotic international and local foods, and yet catering largely to a Western palate, while food quality remained high, the tastes and flavours were sometimes a little bland (with the noted exception of Khun Benz which was exceptional food); (ii) that the aircon in the villa was not as powerful as was required and it remained very hot on some nights.
- 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
