Just wonderful, a small boutique resort for people who don't like resorts. Gorgeous villa style rooms, straight onto the grassy gardens and down to the beach. Lots of heavy wood paneling, huge outdoor bathroom and comfortable day beds on large verandah. As we visited in the rainy season the sea water was often cloudy (apparently it's also cloudy during a... More

wow. We made mistake of staying at one of the other resorts claiming to be luxury on other side of island that is surprisingly and in our opinion a disgusting and horrible dump. We believe all reviews are bribed just like they tried to bribe us. But we bolted out of there and went to a real luxury resort ---... More

If you want to relax and take a breath from other crowded islands in Thailand, this is without any doubt the right place. This hotel has one of the most astonishing views I have ever seen. The rooms are confortable and big, but as they are in the middle of nature I think they should be better cleaned (there were... More

My family and I have been to many island hotels in Thailand, and have been dissatisfied with the accommodation, KIR however is NOT one of them. These beach front individual bungalows are top notch! They are romantic, and tastefully furnished, and all have stunning sea views.The beds are very comfortable, and the bathroom is inside/outside! I highly recommend staying here.... More

We really loved the open air villa with view. Amazing experience: huge open air shower/bath area, really beautiful porch facing ocean with table/chairs and daybed, loved the mosquito net covered bed. What we didn't like was the lousy service - most employees (except for main desk..) acted like they were annoyed and irritated with the guests. Also, we spent about... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our villas are built in the original Andaman Sea - gypsy style which is optimal for comfort and for the environment. We have used unique local resources with a traditional background while still maintaining, if not surpassing, all modern standards. The mangrove palm leaf roofs of our villas breathe and do not store heat, and air conditioners are definitely not needed.All villas have an undisturbed, spectacular sea view of the famous Phang Nga Bay and can be opened up to the stars at night - and in the morning the rising sun shines onto the beds. ... more   less
