Koh Kood, Thailand
Take the concept of an all-inclusive five-star in an impossibly beautiful, remote location but remodel it with upcycled materials, and you’ll have something close to Soneva Kiri. Transfer is by light aircraft or speedboat.
You’re met at the jetty by your own private butler carrying a bag for your footwear with “No News, No Shoes” written on it. The pool villas are vast, with über-luxurious, rustic-chic interiors and their own private plunge pools.
