Highlights include the open-air Cinema Paradiso, a home-made chocolate and ice cream parlour, a high-tech Observatory, a manta ray shaped children’s Den and the spectacular Treetop Dining Pod.
Soneva Kiri has also recently began offering a twice weekly flight by private plane to Siem Reap in Cambodia, home to the captivating world heritage wonders of Angkor Wat.
Soneva Kiri has a sister resort Soneva Fushi (1995), in the Maldives and forms part of the Soneva Group. The Group is steadfast in leading the hospitality industry in environmentally responsible tourism.

We’ve always been fascinated by the night sky. Its thick, impenetrable darkness scattered with glimmering specks of light.Here, on remote Koh Kood, we felt a sense of wonder as we stared into its open sky, far from the obscuring lights of civilization. That’s why we were inspired to build a state-of-the-art observatory. With the infectious passion of our visiting astronomers, you’ll soon be identifying constellations, counting the moons of Jupiter and peering at the graceful halo of Saturn’s translucent ring.
