Inspiring a lifetime of rare experiences

At Soneva, our creativity is driven by our understanding of what true luxury is for our guests; many of which spend most of their time in urban environments. It is about understanding their daily lives and offering them experiences that are both ‘new’ - in that they are rare, unusual and exceptional, but at the same time ‘true’ in that they are highly desired and cherished.

With our team, we continue to question and challenge what is rare, and hence a real luxury. We have curated the following rare and authentic experiences to help create precious, life-enriching stories and memories.


Soneva Kiri offers unforgettable, authentic Thai experiences. With untamed jungle, pristine beaches and fishing villages, Koh Kood is an island truly at peace with itself. 

Inspire your imagination with one-of-a-kind excursions and prepare to discover the island by spending your days hiking through the verdant jungle, swimming in nearby waterfalls or snorkelling in crystal clear waters. Wherever you turn, Soneva Kiri inspires and excites.
