Hotels with swimming pools, in the middle of the nature, with a ton of activities for young and old in breathtaking surroundings, here is Little Guest’s selection of the most incredible luxury hotels!

 

The Soneva Kiri ***** (Thailand)

The first jewel of our selection is located in the heart of the Gulf of Thailand, and more precisely in the private Thai bay of Koh Kood.

It is on this island (« Koh » means « island » in Thai), far from the big cities and tourist circuits that the exceptional Soneva Kiri is built, a real tropical paradise that perfectly combines serenity and luxury.

The hotel’s 36 high-end villas are bordered by lush jungle on one side and a white sandy beach on the other. These two ecosystems are home to a wide variety of flora and fauna that you can discover through the multitude of activities offered by the hotel.
