The Den is our pride and joy. When we envisioned Soneva Kiri, we knew wanted to do something special for children. Incredibly special. If we wanted to rekindle a childlike wonder in adults, then we had to go profusely over the edge in our children's offering. A giant moulded bamboo playground shaped like a manta ray, The Den is dedicated to learning, to excitement, to meaningful experiences. Professional child minders pique your children's imaginations, teaching them to play Thai instruments, unleashing their creative talents with painting and the visual arts, and carefully watching them at play in the wonderous world of moulded bamboo spaces up, down and around.
Recently launching the Intrepid Explorers Club, aimed specifically at one to five year olds, we are the only resort that offer such comprehensive, age-specific facilities.
At the Explorers Club, the younger group play in the ‘Eco Den’. Here the children get to play with toys and take part in activities, both meeting Soneva’s stringent standards of social and environmental responsibility. Throughout the children are looked after by qualified childcare experts, supported by local child carers.
Beyond the manta, the inrepid explorer's club, child-friendly excursions and cultural exchanges immerse them in the destination. Rainforest walks and local school visits leave lasting impressions. And activities to be shared as a family abound, from dinners amidst the wilds to stolen chocolates from the free and endless supply in the chocolate room.
Some recommended experiences for families at Soneva Kiri:
- Father and Son Fishing Trip with Mother and Daughter Spa
- Cinema Paradiso Private Viewing with dinner
- Gourmet Tasting Experience - including a chocolate and wine tasting for adults with children sampling mocktails and a separate meat & cheese tasting with red wines with children sampling chocolates and ice cream
