Between jungle and beach, this secluded resort offers treetop dining, alfresco movies and private infinity pools
Wedged between jungle and beach on the secluded island of Kood, a 90-minute private plane ride from Bangkok, Soneva Kiri has a best-of-both-worlds location. But while celebrity-style amenities abound (private butlers, refined Thai cuisine served in an overwater shack or treetop dining pod, private infinity pools in every villa), the resort has a barefoot-chic vibe that keeps things luxuriously simple. Built from teak, bamboo, and acacia, the 28 vast villas blend into their rain forest setting. Each one is spread over two floors of open-air platforms, with separate self-contained rooms for sleeping, bathing, showering and dressing. And much of the living space—dining table, kitchen, deck shower, private infinity pool—is outdoors. The list of activities goes on and on: diving, snorkeling, sailing, yoga and meditation classes in the spa. Movies are shown in a pop-up cinema over a lake, where staff hand out popcorn and Thai beer. There’s even a chocolate room, an ice cream parlor, and an observatory—all just for the resort’s handful of guests. And while this is honeymoon heaven, children are discreetly catered to in the extraordinary Den, a soaring teak building that looks like something out of a Tim Burton movie with slides, games, activity rooms, and a staff that knows how to keep kids of all ages happy. Be sure to book a night at Benz, a gourmet Thai restaurant in an overwater shack, and in the treetop dining pod, where waiters zipline in to serve you.
