Treepod Dining at Soneva Kiri by Six Senses - Thailand
Dining at Soneva Kiri by Six Senses is anything but ordinary and has now been taken to new heights, with the recently launched Treepod Dining experience. With sumptuous, cushioned seating for up to four diners, guests fasten their leather seatbelts in the rattan bird’s nest at ground level, and are gently hoisted 16 feet into the tall, native massang trees. As the pod slowly climbs into the trees, and the rocky shores slowly descend, your host will fly through the air on a zip line to serve your meal.
Remote but accessible aptly describes the Thai island of Kood, on which Soneva Kiri is set amidst the lush tropical rainforest, off the south-east coast of the Gulf of Siam. International guests are personally met on arrival at Bangkok’s airport and transferred to the resort’s own airplane for the one-hour flight to the Soneva Kiri airfield. From the air, the beauty of untouched Thailand and Koh Kood, with its white sandy beaches is immediately evident.
