Soneva Kiri, the luxury resort located on the Thai island of Koh Kood, is now offering its guests the chance to fly to Angkor Wat.
From 16 November 2014, the property will operate twice weekly flights to Siem Reap using its private plane. The Sunday and Wednesday services include brief stops on the ground at Trat Airport to clear Thai customs and immigration.
“This adds an enticing new dimension to holidays at Soneva Kiri,” said Soneva Kiri’s new general manager, Graham Grant. “It is also our aim to attract customers, who are doing their ‘Cultural Grand Indo China Tour’ too – the ‘trip of a lifetime’ types who are doing Luang Prabang, Angkor Wat, and perhaps onto Vietnam or Burma.
“This way, they can treat themselves to a few days after their grand tour or come to Soneva Kiri beforehand to revitalise energy levels before embarking on the full immersions of amazing antiquities and temple ruins.”
The private plane will fly at a lower altitude than regular commercial flights, offering passengers views of the Cambodian jungle and landmark temples like Bayon, Tha Phrom and Angkor Wat itself.
