TV presenter and world adventurer
Did you enjoy Soneva Kiri? What did you love about it?
I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was better than I could possibly have imagined, the most beautiful villas with their own swimming pools. I loved the attention to detail and genuine kindness of the people there which is what truly made it a wonderful place to stay and a pure piece of paradise.
Is it a resort you would recommend for families and why?
I would definitely recommend it 100% to families; it’s a very kid friendly place. When we were there, there were loads of kids and there are tons of things for kids to do.
Did you think Soneva Kiri and the surrounding island Koh Kood are good for adventurous activities (eg kayaking on mangroves)?
There’s a lot to do, as well as sailing and diving there are also plenty of staff on hand to help you with canoes and explore the neighbouring island, with its stunning white sand palm clad beach.
Did you meet any interesting people at Soneva Kiri and how did that make you feel?
We met a couple of families while we were there who had the same age children as ours which was fantastic but as well as that I had the honour of having dinner with Buzz Aldrin, the pilot of the first spacecraft to land on the moon. He was fascinating. There’s definitely something for everybody on the island!
