Koh Kood, Thailand

General information

Koh Kood is Thailand’s fourth largest and the least populated island, it is known for having some of the most vibrant natural ecology in the country. The number of different ecosystems, combined with the island’s low population and relatively unspoiled environment, mean that Koh Kood supports a large diversity of life – it has more biodiversity than the entire United Kingdom. The sea around the island teems with marine life, while the interior is home to wild animals, lush flora and an exotic butterfly population.

Untamed jungle, pristine beaches, and a local fishing village, Koh Kood is an unspoilt island far beyond Thailand’s tourist trail. Located on this island is the serene and secluded Soneva Kiri, offering an unrivalled blend of luxury, environmentally friendly design and unforgettable, authentic Thai experiences. Barefoot luxury at its best, Soneva Kiri inspires the imagination, Thai style.

Soneva Kiri comprises 36 ultra-spacious pool villas located on the idyllic beach or sunny slopes in the rain forest. The impossibly chic furnishings are made of the highest quality sustainable materials, personal electric buggies and impeccable service courtesy of Mr./Ms. Friday private butlers.

Highlights include the open-air Cinema Paradiso, Benz’ mangrove restaurant, the Chocolate and Ice cream parlor, the Observatory, The Den and the spectacular Treetop Dining Pod.
