Luxury Swiss Family Robinson Island – Thailand

Brought to you by Mirus Extraordinary Journeys

We love to bring you new and exciting places for you and your family to visit and have found a place on the Mirus Extraordinary Journeys site that we just had to share it with you; the Soneva Kiri resort on the Thai island of Koh Kood. (We bucket listed this place on a post earlier this year – Caz)

Although this is a very exclusive resort we thought it was worth a peek.

Soneva Kiri Resort, Koh Kood, Thailand

Located just 80km off the Thai mainland is the second largest island of the Koh Chiang archipelago; Koh Kood.

Described as ‘Thailand’s last unspoilt island,’ it’s a secluded paradise home to around 2,000 villagers and remains largely undeveloped, with no landline phones, limited internet access and few cars.

The ecologically constructed resort of Soneva Kiri blends in beautifully with the unspoilt island.

Getting there is an experience in itself, due to its relative remoteness; an internal flight or train from Bangkok, followed by an hour’s boat ride from the mainland.

Thai Luxury suited to family travel

Snorkelling turned AWESOME

It’s detachment from the hectic lands around offers families a relaxing beach paradise. It’s great for parents to relax and unwind, while still offering plenty of other activities either the children or the whole family can get involved in.

The crystal clear waters make the ideal setting for snorkeling and diving, placing you and your family in front of some of the most exotic sea creatures in the world.

Koh Chang National Park offers over 20 dive sites taking you from colourful coral thrives close to the surface, to around 30 metres below to experience the deep blue sea.

The Den

Unlike many luxury resorts, Soneva Kiri Koh Kood welcomes families and has some amazing facilities including ‘The Den’.

If the location doesn’t get the young ones imagination firing then The Den definitely will.

With its draw bridge entrance shaped like a huge manta ray, this bamboo built structure is an amazing place complete with music room, games room, library and art room where children can let their imagination run riot under the supervision of the resorts professional child-minders.

The Chocolate Factory

The resort also has its own Willy Wonka style chocolate factory, ‘Ever Soneva So Chocoholic’ – a child’s and chocolate lovers favourite.

Here guests can choose from a selection of chocolates, truffles and drinking chocolates all prepared from scratch on the island.

If this isn’t enough the resort also boasts the ‘Ever Soneva So Chilled’ outdoor ice cream parlour where guests can choose from over sixty ice cream and sorbet flavours.

The only problem you could have with taking your kids here is that they’ll never want to leave. Then again, you probably won’t want to either!

Outdoor cinema

The Soneva Kiri resort on Koh Kood is host to the island’s only cinema; ‘Cinema Paradiso’ where the family can relax after a hard days adventuring and watch a classic or contemporary film under the clear nights sky.

This paradise island outdoor cinema experience is accompanied by a menu of American inspired burgers, homemade popcorn and chocolates making it the most luxurious movie experience we’ve ever come across.

The Dining Pod

For a dining experience out of this world the resort has The Dining Pod, which is an experience the whole family will never forget.

A bamboo-made dining pod is lifted 16 feet into the air giving diners a fantastic view of the coastline from within the canopy of the surrounding forest, with food served by a harnessed ‘flying waiter’ delivering gourmet meals on a zip-line.

This is the luxury Swiss Family Robinson experience.

Which feature of the Soneva Kiri resort do you like the sound of most?

    • I can imagine a lot of people would get lost in the chocolate factory! Thailand really knows how to do luxury and it’s much cheaper than you’ll find it most other countries

  4. Love the chocolate factory and outdoor cinema! We just stayed on a secluded and hard to reach Thai island that sounds similar and it was fab! Scenes from the movie The Beach were filmed in the marine park. It was gorgeous.
