Location & Directions

Koh Kood, Thailand

Soneva Kiri is located on Koh Kood, a remote island situated in the east coast of Thailand. Koh Kood is located at the very end of the Thai eastern maritime territory bordering Cambodia. Covering 105 square kilometers, it is the second biggest island of the province of Trat, after Koh Chang.

When to go

The best time for a visit to Koh Kood is between beginning of November and the end of February, when it is relatively cool, dry and mostly sunny. Even during monsoon season, Koh Kood is worth visiting for it doesn't rain every day and all day long.
