Soneva Kiri by Six Senses has confirmed its opening date as July 1, and it will open with all the main facilities completed. This includes the Six Senses Spa, Benz Restaurant, pod dining in the tree-tops and Cinema Paradiso.
On opening, almost all accommodation categories will be available. These are Beach Villa Suites (including one with a private library and one with a personal spa); Junior Beach Retreat; Private Beach Reserve; Cliff Villa Suites (one of these also has a personal spa; and several Hill Villas). The Green House, a zero carbon emissions suite, with environmental technologies incorporated into a bio-climatically designed luxury pool villa, will also be launched.
The resort is located on the island of Kood, on the southeast coast of the Gulf of Thailand. The resort is a 60-minute flight in Soneva Kiri’s own eight-seat luxury Cessna Grand Caravan from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi to the private airstrip. Upon landing, a five-minute boat ride transports guests to the resort.
