Treepod dining

The Treepod at Soneva Kiri Resort on the island of Koh Kood in the Gulf of Thailand lets you dine like the birds do, ensconced in homey intimacy high in the rain forest canopy. The pod, constructed of a strong frame covered in woven bamboo, offers panoramic bird’s-eye views of the rocky shoreline and crystal-clear aquamarine waters below. Diners climb aboard the comfy aerie-like capsule and are lofted into the foliage where they enjoy gourmet food and wine flown in with avian style by a waiter harnessed to a zip line.
