Soneva Kiri
Ranked #2 of 14 Hotels in Ko Kut
Reviewed 31 January 2012

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.

Upon arriving by the Soneva private plane and speedboat started a wonderful stay at this incredible place surrounded by jungle. Our beach villa was amazing, the whole location is unique and the food excellent. The whole thing was topped by a discrete and excellent service. We felt like in paradise, this place can be addictive.

From start to finish the experience was just amazing.
From the second we arrived at Bangkok airport and where greeted by one of Soneva Kiri's charming staff we knew we where going to love our holiday.We boarded the Sonveva 8 seater airplane with the luxurious leather seats and off we flew to paradise.
We were greated at the landing strip of Soneva Kiri by our private butler and we were then whisked off to the resort on a stunning day boat.
Once we arrived at the resort we were greated by the manager and given a welcome drink of our choice; then take to our stunning huge cliff villa to unpack and chill out.
The beach is without doubt the best we have ever seen it Thailand and the food was of a standard that I have never experienced in a hotel before. While it is true this is an expensive option, the luxury accommodation and service of this resort have to be experienced to appreciate why something's are worth the price!.

Room Tip: Beach villas are amazing

This resort has everything it takes (and more) for the perfect family /friends experience. A huge range of facilities ~ beautiful pools, superb trips, tennis courts, private beach, your own electric buggy, amazing childrens playden, the most surreal 'chocolate shop' where you can help yourself to Willy Wonka type goodies (choc and lemongrass milk was my particular favourite),the futuristic dining pod experience, amazing spa, great gym, outdoor cinema surrounded by jungle......the list is endless. And yet the resort never seems busy, crowded or rushed. Chilled but active (if you choose to be) with the most discreet but efficient staff in the world.Five star luxury with five star memories. Absolutely Amazing!

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
