The trip was all started at the Suvarnabhumi airport.
A flight by Soneva Kiri was to catch at Suvarnabhumi Airport. We rushed right to the D24 check-in counter to turn our electronic ticket to the actual ticket there.

The exclusiveness began when we stepped right into the private plane owned by Soneva Kiri. This was my first time flying in this kind of plane, as I realized that the plane was so tiny that it could only fit 8 people at a time. Due to its size, the plane has to fly pretty slow (slower than the ones we used to be on). As it is being so small, it has to fly at a low level, so we all got to enjoy the view down there.

The flight was about an hour and a half. We landed on Koh Mai Si,  Soneva’s private airport next to Koh Kood. From there, we took a short boat ride to Koh Kood, where Soneva is. The boat ride was so much fun. On the ride, we got to enjoy freshly made watermelon juice as well as a glimpse of what the sea looks like.

The concept here is No news, no shoes, therefore everyone here is encouraged to leave your worries at home, but instead take off their shoes and stay connected to the earth, kick back and relax. This place is where the positive energy as well as the gentle, warm breeze are.

Right after exploring our villa, we were all starving. Our Mr. Friday gave us the best advice and brought us to a small boat ride to another side of the beach for food. It took us about 3 minutes to reach the North Beach (pretty long with these starving stomach), but as soon as we saw the beach, it was amazingly beautiful that we forgot that we were hungry. The color of the sea, sky, sand and the trees are so vivid. The yellow sunbeds and umbrellas dramatically contrasted with the color of the sky in the background. The water is crystal clear, warm and calm, as it’s in a bay. On the beach, we were served with light snacks and cocktails / drinks, hamburgers,  as well as barbeques. Other than the striking view, the food was very impressive, due to its  freshness of the ingredients.

After we were all stuffed with the quality food, we  were craving for adventures. Here, all kinds of activities were available. Thrill seekers can indulge in adventures such as snorkelling in nearby reefs, fishing in local fishing boats, visiting the Khlong Chao waterfall, jungle trekking, astronomy classes and much more. Most importantly, most of them can be done without any extra charge.

Benz’s Sovena authentic Thai restaurant is located outside Soneva’s territory. We had to take a short boat ride in order to experience this renowned restaurant is located in a classic wooden Thai structure stilted amongst the mangroves encircling Klong Yai Kee waterfall. With a ‘no-menu’ dining concept, Chef Benz’ vast selection of Thai dishes is inspired by ingredients produced either on Koh Kood or nearby Koh Chang and seafood that comes from local fishermen or is island grown.

At night, we were going to watch a movie outdoor at Cinema Paradiso, an overwater outdoor cinema where gourmet popcorn, the full-service bar were served. However, we were all more interested in wandering back to our villa for the island’s most spectacular show: a star-studded sky, miles and miles away from any worry.
