Discover Thailand’s Most Beautiful Beaches at Soneva Kiri

The Seven Days, Seven Beaches experience sets sail on a traditional fishing boat that transforms into a private beach club

Soneva Kiri has unveiled its latest one-of-a-kind experience. Seven Days, Seven Beaches invites guests to explore some of Thailand’s most breath-taking beaches on the island of Koh Kood, the country’s fourth largest but least populated island, and nearby Koh Rang, a National Marine Park. With Thailand’s borders set to reopen to fully vaccinated visitors from low-risk countries from November 1, 2021, the unforgettable experience is a wonderful way to rediscover the joys of travel while reconnecting with the beauty of nature, surrounded by some of the country’s mostremarkable scenery.

Setting sail from the Soneva Kiri jetty, the traditional wooden fishing boat cruises along the coastline to a curated selection of pristine beaches, secluded bays and hidden coves, far from the usual tourist trail. Each has been chosen for its exquisite natural beauty, soft white sands fringed with palms, and clear, sparkling sea. With each day dedicated to a different beach, the itinerary includes: Klong Chao Beach, Ao Kluai, Koh Rang’s Blue Lagoon, Klong Han Beach, Ao Tapao, Klong Ngamko Beach and Takhian Beach.

In a unique twist, the fishing boat transforms into a private beach club once it drops anchor, complete with a cushioned top deck and bean bags for lounging, kayaks and paddleboards for exploring, and an onboard kitchen where the private chef crafts a mouth-watering selection of gourmet meals. Guests can swim ashore to sunbathe on the sands, snorkel over colourful corals, paddle along the coastline or simply stretch out and relax in the sunshine on deck.

The Seven Days, Seven Beaches experience can be tailored to guests’ desires, offering the freedom to choose from a one-day, one-beach cruise to the full seven-day adventure, with a new beach every day. The boat departs at 10.00 in the morning and returns to the resort at 18:30, taking in the spectacular sunset.

Priced at USD 200 per adult per day and USD 75 per child (5-12 years old) per day, the Seven Days, Seven Beaches experience includes a gourmet lunch with selected beverages and complimentary non-motorised water sports. A shorter, Three Days, Three Beaches experience is also available, priced at USD 500 per person. Each voyage is for a minimum of two guests and a maximum of eight – additional guests can arrive via speedboat once the fishing boat has anchored.
