Soneva Kiri, en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly lux­ury

Avion Luxury International Airport Magazine - - HOTELS -

Far from the frenzy of the con­ti­nent, Soneva Kiri is found in the Gulf of Siam on the is­land of Koh Kood, the fourth largest in Thai­land but the least pop­u­lated. Sur­rounded by lux­u­ri­ant trop­i­cal veg­e­ta­tion of in­tense colours and gleam­ing white beaches, and nes­tled among palm trees and crys­tal-clear wa­ter, the Re­sort is el­e­gantly in­te­grated into the land­scape, clev­erly blend­ing in with the in­cred­i­ble nat­u­ral beauty of the place. Soneva Kiri ex­em­pli­fies the con­cept of “in­tel­li­gent lux­ury” that in­spires the Soneva brand. Ac­ces­si­ble by pri­vate plane with a flight of 80 min­utes from Dong Muang Air­port of Bangkok, the Re­sort, in­stead, seems like it is a mil­lion miles from the real world. The sense of tran­quil­lity of this se­cluded place and its per­fect har­mony with na­ture are un­ri­valled. Well off the usual beaten track of tourists, here you can en­joy the authenticity of the Thai­land of long ago. The 29 vil­las and 8 pri­vate res­i­dences, which are lo­cated on the beach or on the gen­tly slopes of the rain for­est and over­look­ing the splen­did sea, have all been built ac­cord­ing to the prin­ci­ples of en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly de­sign us­ing se­lected lo­cal and nat­u­ral raw ma­te­ri­als. The rooms guar­an­tee com­plete pri­vacy and all the com­fort and lux­ury of a 5-star ho­tel, and are among the most spa­cious of south-east Asia. They are equipped with large in­fin­ity pools and gen­er­ous ar­eas for read­ing, re­lax­ing, sun­bathing and watch­ing the sea. Some vil­las have pri­vate spa ar­eas and each has a ded­i­cated but­ler. Each villa has an elec­tric cart to get around the Re­sort, mak­ing it easy to reach the Six Senses spa and be pam­pered with well­ness, holis­tic, re­gen­er­at­ing and re­lax­ing treat­ments. The white sandy beaches are with­out equal, and of­fer guests the op­por­tu­nity to go snorkelling, scuba div­ing, sail­ing and wind­surf­ing or or­gan­ise boat trips on
