Soneva Kiri is comprised of 42 resort villas and 21 spectacular private residences that sit on 150 acres of lush tropical rainforest and beaches. In addition to being absolutely gorgeous, the resort prides itself on its environmentally conscious practices. Strategies like passive cooling, daylighting [5], recycling rainwater catchment and natural filtration and green roofs [6] help the resort achieve its green goals, Guests are also offered the option to ride in electric carts and bicycles on their way to the beaches instead of in cars.
