Koh Kood Island – Koh Chang Archipelago
One of the last Thailand paradise…
Mountains and craggy peaks between waterfalls and lush tropical vegetation. Landscapes surrounded by the cliffs of hard granite rock or porous volcanic lava, a mirror of bays and pristine lagoons. Beaches of white sand and crystal clear sea. Reef and coral full of colorful tropical fish. Where to find it ? Of course in Thailand, in the marvellous island of Koh Kood.
Fourth largest island in Thailand (after Phuket, Koh Chang and Koh Samui) the wonderful Koh Kood is in fact the last place of Thailand to have developed for tourist. Because of its proximity to the border Cambodian border, the island has been neglected for many years by the Thai government, but by the early 2000s, Koh Kood has new life, and began to develop a timid tourism.
Koh Kood Island now
With the passage of time, the number of hotels and Resort has been gradually increasing, albeit in a completely different way than most of the tourist resorts of Thailand. Both because of the nature of the island, characterized by a mountainous interior full of waterfalls and wild tropical vegetation, and the absence of traffic (there is only one paved road that connects a small part of the island) Koh Kood has been chosen by the most exclusive hotel chains and therefore boasts a selection of resort that is unequalled in the whole country!
These include the Soneva Kiri, a 6 Star resort that boasts a breathtaking lagoon and a small private airport ( located on a small island ) where daily land small jet and helicopter from Bangkok only for the exclusive property of the resort.

However, aside from the exclusive offer of Soneva Kiri, the island of Koh Kood offers the opportunity to all inclusive holidays inside beautiful Beach Resorts and facilities.
