Eco Chic | Soneva Kiri, Koh Kood, Thailand

October 3, 2011

Soneva Kiri Eco Resort by Six Senses is an absolute gem of a resort. Not merely because of how it looks amid the natural setting overlooking the bay, but because of the revolutionary promise of what an eco-conscious resort can look like. From the organic flow of bamboo and how it coils into shape at the resort’s Children Center, to the unusual option for guests to dine in a lofty woven Tree Pod perched 16 feet off the ground. And as if that wasn’t already cool enough, all of the food and beverages arrive courtesy of a flying waiter via a zip line.

Soneva Kiri is located on Koh Kood, a pristine and untouched island on the east coast of Thailand. It comprises 42 pool villas along the beach front and on the hillside, overlooking the Gulf of Thailand. Each pool villa offers living areas and air-conditioned bedrooms surrounded by water features. Several villas feature private spa suites. Three restaurants present a range of dining experiences. In addition to many leisure facilities, the resort will feature a Six Senses Spa village and a celebration pavilion. Honeymooners will be pampered with a complimentary Soneva honeymooner benefits.

Flights from Bangkok take 60 minutes by the resort’s own lightplane, then 2 kilometres by motor boat. Round trip BKK airport transfer (land/boat) from USD380 per person, excluding. tax & service charge. Prices are subject to change.
