Why Stay At Soneva Kiri
Soneva Kiri, on Thailand's dramatic Koh Kood, is a luxe, remote-island getaway with unexpected amenities, from a treehouse dining area to open-air movie screenings.
To reach Soneva Kiri, on the Gulf of Thailand's Koh Kood, guests board the resort's private jet in Bangkok for a one-hour flight to the hotel's private airstrip, or a take a one-hour speedboat ride from Trat, in southeast Thailand. Upon arrival, it's a castaway fantasy: an ivory-sand beach fronts the resort's free-form private pools, tented day beds, and rainforest spa. Personal butlers race around the property's 29 villas in golf carts, though the ultimate dinner-with-a-view uses transportation of a different kind: the hotel's four-person Treetop Dining Pod is located 20 feet up a massang tree, and servers deliver seafood curries via zip line.
Movie fiends will love this special service: for a fee, staffers set up an inflatable movie screen on a small lake near the resort's main building.
Ask your butler to set up an outdoor day bed, suspended like a hammock between bamboo trees.
Arrive at Bangkok International Airport (BKK) where you will be picked up by a resort representative. Travel time via private plane ride to Koh Kood Island takes approximately 60 minutes. Furthermore, upon arrival at the island airport there is a 5-minute speedboat ride to the resort.110 Moo 4, Trat, Thailand

Why We Love Koh Kood
Serene Koh Kood, a 63-square-mile Thai island near the Cambodian border, is without the taxis, late-night parties, and tourist centers of better-known Phuket and Koh Samui. Instead, there are dramatic waterfalls and dozens of secluded beaches to explore.
Day trip for two $195.
Best Beach: Soneva Kiri is home to Koh Kood's most exclusive beaches, but for an off-property excursion with great people-watching, head to the island's southern beaches at Bang Bao Bay.
Where to Eat: Four miles south of Soneva Kiri, Pizza & Pasta serves the Italian owner's family recipes, including truffle-parmesan pasta topped with mushrooms and mozzarella.
119/2 Klong Chao.
Dinner for two $30.
Where to Drink: The open-air Sunset Bar, on stilts above a protected inlet off the Gulf of Thailand, is the best place to watch the sunset.
1 km south of Klong Chao.
Drinks for two $15.
