Soneva Kiri is located on the island of Koh Kood, 350km southeast of Bangkok and 80km off the Thai mainland. Easily accessible from Bangkok, it feels like a ancient land untouched by time. Despite being the fourth largest island in the country, it remains remarkably undeveloped; wild interiors and immaculate beaches compose its raw glamour. The island’s charms inspired the rustic-chic design of the resort, sustainably crafted with recycled wood like the poles that bring to mind the stilts of the local fishing villages.

Koh Chang National Park offers two-dozen dive sites down to 30 metres though much of the more colourful coral thrives closer to the surface, around 12 metres.
