Tree pod dining, Thailand


You don’t need to climb any trees or swing through the foliage to eat amid a rainforest canopy.

Tree pod waiters at the Six Senses’ Soneva Kiri Resort on the Thai island of Kood will take care of all that monkey business for you.

Here, a rattan dining pod is hoisted up about 5m (16 feet) into the treetops from sea level, with up to four diners already inside.

‘Flying’ hosts bring food and drink to the table via a zip wire through the canopy, while the diners sit back, enjoy beach and treetop views, and try not to think about bathroom break protocol.
