Eco Den

The Den at Soneva Kiri is a haven for our younger guests, where their imagination and creativity are encouraged to run free. The children will be properly cared for in a safe environment with top class facilities. The Den is an extraordinary over-ground bamboo-framed structure in the shape of a gigantic manta ray, which hovers amongst the tree tops. Internationally acclaimed eco-focused Dutch architect “Olav Bruin” was chosen as the designer. There are four dedicated rooms set within the free-flowing auditorium. These include the Art Room, Music Room, Games Room and Library which has a catamaran style netting floor. A pièce de résistance is the entrance, which features a drawbridge leading up to a wave of stairs, creating a feeling of excitement and anticipation on arrival.

Benz’s Thai Cooking Class

We would like to invite all Thai food lovers to meet and learn to cook with Khun Benz – where you will discover the best Thai food recipes. Start the day by joining the lovely Khun Benz (named after her father’s car!) as she heads to the local fishing village at Ao Salad to choose the catch of the day, whether its squid, crab, scallops or any number of local fish. Khun Benz will then teach you how to prepare your very first delicious Thai dish the local way. Moreover, our desire is for you to take your favourite culinary delights and recreate them at home to share with your family and friends.

Private Picnic and Snorkeling

Jet over to Koh Rang National Marine Park on one of our speed boats to discover the vast variety of tropical fish. Once you have finished your underwater discovery our team will take you to your very own private beach for a picnic on the white sands.

Mountain Bike Tour

Mountain biking is an invigorating way to discover Koh Kood. Imagine cycling along a quiet road, in the shade of the rubber trees and coconut groves, with the sound of the birds and the insects filling the fresh air. Though quiet, the Mountain Bike Tour comes recommended as an active activity. The hills are as bountiful as the Koh Kood itself is peaceful.

Sunset Cocktail Cruise

The most romantic way to enjoy the passing of yet another day in paradise. Cruise along around the west side of Koh Kood and quietly wander the waters, while sipping wine and nibbling on our chef’s gourmet canapés and enjoy as the sun dips into the sea.

Private Boat Outings

We offer tailor-made cruises where you can discover the great sights and sounds of Koh Kood island. Our speed boats offer the flexibility to choose those perfect hideaways and snorkelling sites away from the crowds. Cruise the islands around Koh Kood to discover hidden beauties in the Gulf of Siam. We meet and greet with the fish, kiss the sun and swim in crystal blue waters.

Yai Ki Trek & Paddle

This popular activity combines the best of Koh Kood in a hiking and kayaking adventure. Begin the day with an easy hike to a nearby waterfall where you can cool off in the natural spring waters, passing by local villages. After this, there is plenty of time to explore the area, with the resort’s Tropical Ecologist giving you an introduction to flora and fauna. Finish the experience with a relaxing kayak around Khlong Yai Ki, near the renowned Benz restaurant, before heading back to the resort.

Rainforest Adventure

An 8 km drive from Soneva Kiri Resort brings you to Klong Nam Sai. The trek will introduce you to much of Koh Kood’s wildlife. The nature of the jungle is a viewing paradise with an incredible diversity of flora and fauna. After trekking for 45 minutes, we visit a local family’s jungle house and organic farm. From there, we slowly move down the ravine to Koh Kood’s secret waterfall. The return route takes us to the majestic and enormous 600 year old Makka (Rosewood) tree. Consider requesting the resort’s biologist to enrich your experience. The peace and quiet of this wonderful trek is inspirational.

PADI diving courses

Benz Restaurant 1 by Antonina Gern


The creation of this signature Thai gourmet restaurant allowed us to exhibit one of our greatest finds. Discovered by Sonu and Eva many moons ago, Chef Benz was the perfect choice to helm this Thai kitchen. With a ‘no-menu’ dining concept, Chef Benz’ vast selection of dishes is inspired by ingredients grown here on Koh Kood and neighbouring Koh Chang and seafood that comes from local fishermen. Cruise through the mangroves of Klong Yai Kee to this open-air lantern-lit eatery on stilts. Continue your soulful trip, discovering the delicacies of a nine-course menu that changes nightly.

The View deck by Richard Waite

The View Restaurant

As we designed the naturally luxurious playground that is Soneva Kiri, we took great delight in the spectacular vistas we discovered. The View takes its name from its unparalleled outlook. Intimate yet dramatic, The View thrusts you into the infinite horizon. Dine over the cliff and savour your selection of creations made in the slow food tradition – lovingly prepared with locally sourced produce and Western cooking techniques, making the most of the season and each day’s harvest.

Treepod Dining

Tree Pod Dining could be the most innovative dining aloft since inflight silver service was introduced at 35,000 feet, half a century ago. Although in this case the dining is just 16 feet, or around 5 metres, off terra firma. The Tree Pod, engineered with a rigid frame swathed in woven rattan, is not unlike a cocoon with an open panorama window. Up to four diners board the pod, and are then elevated to the lofty height by a system of safety winches. Food courses arrive courtesy of a flying waiter – harnessed to a zip line – as do beverage replenishments. However, unlike the other form of first class dining aloft, this experience enjoys the ultimate exclusivity, and very little turbulence.
