Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

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.

Be warned – you will find it hard to find another hotel to match the wonderfulness of Soneva Kiri once you've stayed here!

 This place is truly lovely.  Setting the stage with an attentive dedicated airport staff in Bangkok, one already feels the luxury vibe before climbing onto their charter plane.  The property itself is somewhat akin to a movie set- a perfectly clean version of a tropical paradise retreat.  The rooms are spacious, private, and really well designed self-contained little compounds.  The family units offer a separate kids room with a foosball table, bunk beds, and a water slide into the private pool.  We cant imagine a kid who wouldnt love it.  They also have a well-stocked kids club near the main living room area of the property.  The rooms' outdoor bath areas are spacious and smartly designed.  The beds are beyond comfortable.  The provided golf carts make for a fun way to get around the easily navigable roads.  The breakfast selection is an endless cornucopia, and indeed every meal to be had on site is extremely well executed.  A visit to the spa, run by Six Senses, comes with a thorough but never invasive health consultation and outstanding massage.  The tea service in their tree top basket is a unique and memorable addition that really stands out.  In short, this is one of the most distinct and impressive properties in Thailand.  A true gem!

Soneva Kiri offers Robinson Crusoe type villas on a remarkable island. This five-star barefoot luxury resort offers complete relaxation. This resort really is second to none and has some of the best dining options, including Benz, where you hop on a boat for a beautiful ride past mangrove trees before you arrive and enjoy delicious Thai cuisine. The staff are wonderful and will ensure that your stay is one you'll always remember - you won't want to leave!


Jules Maury (Staff)

Soneva Kiri is not a hotel, it's a world apart from all others. The Villas are more like individual tree houses and having lunch in the Tree Pod high above the bay was indeed a unique experience. Riding around in my buggy, exploring the island and ending up on a bay with the whitest sand at their beach bar, flanked by a perfect crescent of emerald green coconut palms was absolute heaven, what a perfect place to stop and as Soneva Kiri preaches get used to life in the slow lane! This is a heavenly resort.


Sophie Jones (Staff)

Arriving at Soneva Kiri after a very luxurious 8 seater charter flight from Bangkok felt like I had been let in on a very special secret tropical paradise. There was nothing that you could possibly want that could not be provided at the hotel from an all day chocolate tasting room, tree-pod dining, an incredible stretch of white sand beach and an amazing dining experience nestled within the mangroves. Soneva Kiri truly does tick every imaginable box - just amazing!


Clare Barratt (Staff)

Lives up to and exceeds expectations. Your journey starts with a flight in the 8 seater plane across to Koh Kood, so you know you are going somewhere really special. My favourite part of the hotel was the barefoot style of it, walking around barefoot outside really seemed like a treat and gave the resort a very relaxed atmosphere. Head to Benz for some delicious Thai food, try to time your reservation so you can get the boat out at sunset and then indulge in a surprise set Thai menu of yumminess. The freedom of having your own personal buggy is also really handy as many other resorts don't allow this.


Evi-Elli La Valle (Staff)

I had never been on a private plane before so I was pretty excited about the flight to Soneva Kiri. On arrival in Bangkok, you are met by a Soneva Kiri representative and taken to the Thai Airways first class lounge to wait until your flight to Koh Kood. The Cessna Grand Caravan is so luxurious and they have converted a 12-seater plane to eight seats, so it is really comfortable. The hour or so flight is great and we were able to see the beautiful scenery and islands as we flew. Nothing could prepare me for the first glimpse of Soneva Kiri, with the white roofs dotted amongst the palm trees, you could not have a better arrival experience!
