Dining at Soneva Kiri

Discover all of our dining destinations and experiences available at Soneva Kiri and on the untouched island of Koh Kood down below. Our Hosts are happy to customise each experience for a special occasion, celebration, or just because.

Is there a meal that sticks out as the most memorable? There’s a restaurant on Koh Kood Island in Thailand called Benz’s. You get on a boat and go up a river to get there. It is the most exquisite, spicy Thai food I’ve ever had. The flavors were incredible.

Traditional Thai
Open for dinner
The creation of this signature Thai gourmet restaurant allowed Chef Benz, discovered by Sonu and Eva many moons ago, to helm this kitchen. With a 'no-menu' dining concept, Chef Benz' vast selection of dishes is inspired by ingredients grown here on Koh Kood and neighbouring Koh Chang, and seafood caught by local fishermen.

The View

Modern European fine dining with an Asian twist
Open for dinner
As we designed the naturally luxurious playground that is Soneva Kiri, we took great delight in the spectacular vistas we discovered. The View takes its name from its unparalleled outlook.

Dining Room

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Perched atop rocky cliffs, the Dining Room entreats you to share in these moments. At breakfast, bask in a leisurely ambiance as you choose from an array of enticing morning delights. From the dedicated cheese and charcuterie room, to a wealth of global flavours including creative Thai and Mediterranean fare from the Cooking Hut.

So Spirited

Tapas and beverages

In-Villa Dining

Midnight desserts in the lunar glow? A family lunch where the children plan the menu and have it served by the pool – or perhaps in the tree house? A romantic gathering of sensual flavours on a private terrace for two? Take advantage of your tropical living spaces with breakfast, lunch, dinner or late-night treats in the intimacy of your villa.

This is far more than a luxury resort I liked the wide range of foods available at breakfast. We tried The View, which is the restaurant overlooking the beach, and the food was great. We also tried the food in Benz, which serves authentic Thai dishes which were really delicious. This is by far our favourite and most memorable vacation.

Food plays a big part in any holiday of ours and everything here was delicious. The amazing breakfast has everything you could ever want and sets you up for the day. The View restaurant provided top notch gourmet western cuisine against the backdrop of stunning sunsets. The Living Room was more casual with an extensive all day menu of both Thai and European food. This really is a very special place.

This was my second stay at Soneva Kiri. The food and beverages are always really good. Benz is an authentic Thai market kitchen serving lots of sea bass. The Soneva restaurant/villa dining is really good and very extensive.

What a fabulous once in a lifetime dining experience. To be able to say you ate in a Treepod overlooking Koh Kut beach while feeling like you are one with nature, how amazing? The pod gives you that jungle feel. I loved it. Everything was perfect.
