Located on Koh Kood, a pristine island off the coast of the Gulf of Thailand, Soneva Kiri is only about 1 hour south of Bangkok, but it may as well be worlds away; it requires a small plane and subsequent boat ride to get there. It also features one of the most unusual amenities that I've ever seen at a resort: tree pod dining.
The dining pod, a rigid frame of woven rattan formed into a cocoon-like shape, is attached to a tree 16 feet in the air -- and it takes the concept of in-air dining to new heights. You can look out onto panoramic views of the white sand beach and turquoise waters.
So how the heck do you get up there? Well, up to four people board the pod and then it is raised up with a safety winch system, which is basically a tension rope device.

Soneva Kiri has 42 pool villas and 20 private residences, including a zero-carbon-emissions bio-climatically designed Eco Villa. Some of the villas even come with an electric car and charging
