You can put this on the top of your travel bucket list. At the Soneva Kiri resort located on the Koh Kood island in Thailand, a treetop restaurant brings guests 26 feet high for a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience.
Koh Kood is Thailand’s fourth largest but the least populated island, according to the resort. That means you’ll have sandy beaches, idyllic ocean views, and lush rainforests all to yourself.
The resort allows guests to book reservations at the Treepod, a bamboo pod that ascends to the height of tree canopies, with unobstructed views of the surrounding rainforest and ocean. Waitstaff perform an incredible balancing act by ziplining with your dishes to deliver them to your table.
The whole experience is one of unwinding and relaxing in seclusion. In order to get to Koh Kood, one takes a private plane at the Bangkok airport. The 70-minute flight takes you to an island off Koh Kood. From there, the resort sends a speedboat to pick you up and bring you to a jetty off the coast of Koh Kood.
The resort offers spa treatments, outdoor movie screenings, and water sports activities, but otherwise, you are all alone in the beauty and calm of nature.
