The Six Senses Soneva Kiri resort on the Thai island of Koh Kood now offers ‘tree-pod’ dining for its more adventurous guests. The remote luxury resort (accessible only by the resort’s private plane) is nestled in a tropical rainforest and promotes the use of sustainable and renewable sources in its design and architecture; ‘tree-pod’ dining is just the latest addition to the resort’s encouragement of ‘the fusion of nature with guest experiences.’
To begin their tree-top dining experience, guests step into a woven rattan pod that looks like something akin to a giant bird nest. They are then hoisted to a height of 16 feet, where they are treated to panoramic views of the Gulf of Siam below. Waiters fly in via ziplines, and perch on small platforms next to the pods to serve the guests a meal made from the resort’s organic gardens.
Up to four guests can enjoy the tree-pod dining experience at a time, which is offered at no additional cost at the all-inclusive resort.
