A giant moulded bamboo playground shaped like a manta ray hovering high amidst the treetops, the Den at Soneva Kiri is dedicated to Learning, Inspiring and Fun Experiences (LIFE). Designed by internationally acclaimed Dutch architect Olav Bruin, the Den was built using locally sourced bamboo from the north of Trat. In its belly are dedicated rooms for arts and crafts, music and games – each distinct and featuring natural finishes – as well as a library with a catamaran-style netting floor with overstuffed cushions. Windows in the flooring peek down to the forest floor below, however, its pièce de resistance is the entrance, which features a drawbridge that leads up to a wave of stairs, creating a feeling of excitement and anticipation on arrival. Professional childcarers are on hand to pique children’s imaginations, teaching them to play Thai instruments, unleashing their creative talents with painting and more.
The Den is complimentary for children aged 5-12 years old.
Children under the age of five are also welcome to join if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Alternatively, babysitting services can be booked with prior notice 24 hours (one day) in advance and subject to a charge of THB 850 per child, per hour.

The Eco Den at Soneva Kiri
A prototype zero carbon emissions villa, the Eco Den was built by a local team of Thai craftsmen with expertise in mud brick construction, terracotta, carpentry and stonemasonry, and using locally sourced materials. With a roof made from recycled newspapers, heat-stop glass windows and one-metre-thick walls, the Eco Den stays at a cool, comfortable temperature throughout the day and provides a unique, natural environment for young children to safely explore their surroundings. Children can play for hours in this haven, with plenty of shaded areas on our decking for outside play, a green finger garden, a sleep and relaxation room for when they need to recharge their batteries, and a main discovery room where they can explore – all while under the watchful eyes of our expert childminder.

Soneva Kiri’s Solar reef garden, a man-made Eco solar powered reef. An artificial structure with coral transplantation grafted to it. This naturally attracts numerous species of fish which will settle and then choose it as a place for reproduction. The sculpture garden just off Koh Raet’s south coast is definitely one of the most unique dive sites around Koh Kood.
Koh Raet, just 5 minutes from Soneva Kiri by boat, is one of Koh Kood’s most unique dive and snorkelling sites – with a dense natural reef, teeming with fish and crustacea, and a sunken sculpture garden, where you can spot an elephant, tiger, horse, cow and a dog on the sandy seabed.
