We spent eight days at Soneva Kiri. The journey itself is fantastic, as you arrive in Bangkok Airport to take the small plane and then a boat to the hotel. If you want to go to the north beach you can take a five minute boat trip. Really one of the best places we have visited.

We drove around the island in our private golf buggy which was a lot of fun and it was a very easy way to get to everything fabulous. The Cinema Paradisio – the outdoor cinema serving hot popcorn - was a highlight, as well as the Six Senses Spa where I had a really nurturing massage followed by a steam room relaxation session. Soneva Kiri is a luxury resort with a conscience. Just book it.

This is far more than a luxury resort. Every detail is considered, from landscape to housekeeping to food. The really impressive part was the eco centre. We appreciated the guided tour to discover the beauty of the Koh Kood island and the visit to the waterfall. As we left, the staff lined up waving goodbye. It was the perfect holiday.

I did a yoga package with massages at the Six Senses Spa which was lovely. Wonderful yoga with Dr Dinesh and relaxing massages at the Spa wonderfully managed by Mark. The staff at Soneva always call you by name so it seems like home. Thank you for sharing your island with me. I have gone back with a suitcase full of memories.
