But the package ain't cheap.
When Bangkok’s dollar millionaires have a weekend with an empty schedule, they check into Koh Kood’s hidden-away all-villa resort, Soneva Kiri, where rates start from B30,000 a night even in the down season.
While their new two-night Thai residents’ package is no sabai deal at B89,000, we do reckon it nets you a saving of about B45,000.
Mostly because it includes round-trip private flights between Bangkok and the island, which usually go for B13,500 each way. Otherwise, a drive from Bangkok to the island plus ferry transfer usually takes up to 5 hours.
On top of that, you get dinner for two (that’s another B7,000), 50-minute spa treatments, and if you have a kid under 12, they can come along for free as well.
If you’re lucky and the super luxurious Beach Pool Villa Suite’s not booked out, they’ll even bump you up to that—usual nightly rate, B62,500.
Set within the lush rainforest on the most exclusive and private part of Koh Kood, Soneva Kiri features jungle-luxe pool villas, an open-air auditorium called Cinema Paradiso and private dining pods nestled in treetops. Best of all, the Gulf of Thailand still enjoys plenty of sunny days all the way through August.
