In Thailand, You Can Dine In A Hanging Pod

The Tree Pod at Soneva Kiri, Thailand

How are you with heights? Good? Keep reading.

Located on the remote Thai island of Ko Kood and set amid the lush tropical rainforests off the coast of the Gulf of Siam is Soneva Kiri. The luxe holiday destination offers grandeur, seclusion and one hell of a dining experience.

The Tree Pod at Soneva Kiri, Thailand

Set high among the native masang trees is the Tree Pod, a dining experience that lets diners feast on gourmet cuisine 5m above the ground. Constructed from woven bamboo, the framed pod can accommodate up to four diners.

From above, guests enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding sandy beaches while food and drinks are delivered by a flying waiter who’s strapped into a zip-line. Let me just repeat that: A flying waiter will zip through the air to serve you food and drinks.

The food is equally as impressive. There’s one dish called Canapé in the Canopy, with marinated white fish spiked with red fruits, and another called the Forager’s Basket, with young coconut prawn, scallop escabeche and pomegranate.

And, I know what you’re going to ask, and no, sadly the zip-line is only for waiters. But, according to Express, the designers are looking making it work for guests. Yes please!
