The cross-cultural camp offers a fascinating exercise for parents in watching how 10 days spent exploring, learning about the environment, Thai culture, wellness, marine biology and studying local crafts in a safe and fun environment can open their children’s eyes and enrich their development.
The Soneva resorts have forged a reputation for doing things differently and their children’s activities, run closely along their signature SLOW LIFE philosophy – Sustainable, Local, Organic, Wellness – Learning, Inspiring, Fun, Experiences.

An equally inspirational Den is being built at Soneva Fushi in the Maldives and will open later this year but meanwhile, its Summer Camp will embrace all features that have placed Soneva’s Dens in a class of their own.
