Activities and Experiences at Soneva Kiri ($)
The Den is the pride and joy of Soneva Kiri. Incredibly special. If we wanted to rekindle a childlike wonder in adults, then we had to go profusely over the edge in our children’s offering. A giant molded bamboo playground shaped like a manta ray, The Den is dedicated to learning, to excitement, to meaningful experiences. Professional child minders pique your children’s imaginations, teaching them to play Thai instruments, unleashing their creative talents with painting and the visual arts, and carefully watching them play in the wonderous world of molded bamboo spaces up, down and around.
The Eco Den is a special program aimed specifically at one to five year-olds, making Soneva Kiri the only resort that offers such comprehensive, age-specific facilities. Here the children get to play with toys and take part in activities that meet Soneva's stringent standards of social and environmental responsibility. All children are looked after by qualified childcare experts, supported by local child carers.
Those fascinated by astronomy can explore the glimmering galaxies from the resort's state-of-the-art observatory, far from the obscuring lights of civilization. Visiting astronomers show guests the constellations, the moons of Jupiter and the halo of Saturn's translucent ring.
Guests can discover the captivating UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat. Catch a speedboat to transfer at Ban Hat Lek, the Cambodian border town, before boarding your very own private helicopter to enjoy breathtaking views as you fly over the Cardamom Mountain Range National Park.
