HERO Thailand Sonevia Kiri

LOCATION

Nearly fifty miles off the Thai mainland, near the Cambodian border, lies the island of Koh Kood. A quintessential Thai island with palm-fringed white sand beaches and turquoise shallows that seem to never end, it’s the ideal home for the ultra-luxe Soneva Kiri. 

The resort’s abodes run the gamut from romantic suites with direct access to private beaches to palatial six-bed clifftop villas with spa facilities and games rooms. All share a calm minimalist aesthetic warmed up with splashes of vibrant color and natural materials, with the latter helping the resort merge with the jungle backdrop. All accommodation options are airy, spacious, and equipped with private pools to sink into as the tropical sun hits its zenith.

WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?

It’s the only top-tier resort on the island and is tidily secreted on its own peninsula in the north. Its selection of excursions and activities it can arrange are as bottomless as the resort bars: dive into the Gulf of Thailand’s rich coral gardens, take a nature walk into the island’s forested hinterland, or picnic on that island you’ve been admiring from your private pool.

You’d rather stay in the resort? Well, who can blame you. There’s the world-class Six Senses Spa, outdoor films at candlelit Cinema Paradiso (with cocktails served as you watch), and next-level Thai food at Benz’s.
