“Excellent service, friendly staff, nice facilities”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We stayed in Kirikayan Luxury Pool Villas and Spa first time in year 2009. We liked the hotel that time very much (stayed at the Honeymoon villa) and decided that next time we visit Thailand , we will surely choose this hotel again for staying at the end of our trip in Thailand (it seems to become as a tradition to finish the vacation in Kirikayan  ) But next time we could visit Thailand after long 4 years because of our daughter birth,etc..
Second time we stayed in this hotel in Sep'2013 and I really appreciate the patience and kindness of the hotel staff, especially Mr. Naruebet Tipsawet. We were planning to go to Thai with our friends (family couple), so I booked and paid in advance to the hotel directly for one 3-bed room villa. Later on we decided to change for 2 separate villas and the hotel did it for us and even re-calculate the prices (that time the prices decreased at sawadee and other booking systems). Before the trip itself, our friends informed that they could not go with us because of some sudden problems with health, so I wrote to the hotel and they kindly agreed to cancel one villa booking with return of full amount of balanced payment after our trip without any penalties, etc.. (we agreed that I can use this balance for SPA,etc.. if I want and the balance will be returned to me. By the way, I’m in my country already and the hotel already remitted the balance to my credit card as they promised). At the last stage I again decided to changed the type of villa from one bed room to Honeymoon and the hotel again did it for us without any additional charges (Mr. Naruebet Tipsawet whom I bothered all this time with correspondence and all these requests for changes was very kind and patient )
Now about the hotel, facilities itself and what has changed since our last visit.
a) Before you could go to hotel part of the beach at Maenam and the beach was rather good. Now the guest can go (by free hotel shuttle bus) to their parent hotel Kirikayan Boutique hotel located at Chaweng (but the beach their not so good to be honest if you are with the small children/ The best part of the beach for children is between Al’s resort and Chaweng Bury) .
b) Now guests staying at villas can not get the breakfast delivered to the villa itself, you should go to the hotel restaurant for buffet style breakfast though for us it’s not a problem actually.
c) The SPA , restaurant, reception, all other staff is very friendly and attentive (as well as all other hotel staff) . Our small daughter enjoyed the great attention and kindness to her by the hotel staff and felt herself as a Hollywood star 
d) Villas still looks nice and good (but within 1-2 years might need some light renovation)
e) Price for mini-bar is not so high for the hotel of such type.

Overall , we liked it again. I think main reason is not only the nice facilities, private pool at your villa (their big swimming pool outside is very good also and I think one of the best I’ve saw at Samui (the views are somehow like from “Paradise Park” swimming pool)

The small things we are not so much impressed by : variety of food for the breakfast, daughter hotel beach (but most people who choose Kirikayan for stay, I think wants some quiet and relaxing atmosphere which you will not get if going to the beach, so for us it’s not a problem at all even if the hotel will have only good swimming pool)

Our family, two adults and two children (11 and 14 years) stayed at the Kirikayan in early to mid May 2013. We are from New Zealand. We all enjoyed our stay at this resort and would certainly return.

The resort is slightly out of the way, which means It is peaceful, quiet and very relaxing. There is a free daily shuttle from the hotel which goes to its sister hotel in Chaeweng beach. This is a good service and worth utilising. The local beach-about 1km down the road-is nice. There are a number of local shops-but they are no where as good as the ones in Chaeweng.

The resort restaurant is excellent and reasonably priced. We had dinner there most nights The free breakfasts are great.

The family unit is well sized and comfortable. It contains all the amenities you may require. It is serviced each day-if you wish. The staff do little extra things ike turn our beds back at night and put on the mozzie coils. We did not encounter any problems with the mosquitoes.

The pool is great and our children spent plenty of in it.

The staff are a great asset to the resort. They are friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. Apple provides outstanding service. Her English is excellent and she is always willing to talk and answer any questions. Staff are a good source of local information and will book tours and attractions for you.

We all enjoyed our 8 days at the Kirikayan and would recommend it to any other families.

The breakfast served is fresh and plenty of choice and the service of the staff is high. Is not located near the sea. but the hotel has a car driving guests free of charge several times a day between there´s hotell. Their second hotel is right on the beach

Great service and beautiful place. We was there in early this year. We stayed both in Maenam and Chaweng.
In Chaweng is closed to shopping center and the beautiful beach.
In Maenam nice and quiet with mountain view. We love it and will go back there again next time. Thank you.

We stayed at this resort during the last leg of our trip to Koh Samui in January 2013. Its set in between a green expanse and throws light on the other side of Koh Samui which most people miss out on. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite with a private Jacuzzi on the roof. If you are a couple and want to get away from the crowd then this is the place i would recommend. The rooms are huge and very comfortable with your own kitchen. The only downside is that you need to walk down about 15 min to get to the main road to get supplies. The hotel does have frequent shuttles going to its other property at Chaweng through out the day which is very helpful. Other plus points: Nice collection of dvds and books, superb service and a well maintained property.

The penthouse suite is a must for any couple on this beautiful island paradise. Private, quiet and spacious duplexes with private indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis. Your own balcony to soak in the sun and beautiful weather. I'd recommend this to any one that had already been or is planning to go for the first time.

Arriving hotel at Kirikayan made us utter.. wow.. this is a real hideaway from Samui as we just moved from a resort in Chaweng which is quite a flashy, untidy zone.
So, the tranquil atmosphere with the gorgeous coconut tree views before the pool and lush landscape surrounded the resort just absolutely impressed us.

In fact, the driver and the guy at the reception was our first impression.

The room we stayed was Penthouse Jacuzzi Suite which was very new and spacious. I would say a bit too spacious to walk around. Well, the design somehow looked plain. However, at this price, it was reasonable, although I wish they were more meticulous in interior design.

Anyway, our 2 nights should have been called perfect, but their JACUZZI's screwed up everything. Note that we booked Jacuzzi Suite so we came here for the jacuzzi!

First of all, the idea of open-air Jacuzzi might sound wonderful, until we saw the thick dust that made it hard for us to use. That was, actually, okay in exchange of such idyllic scenery.
So, our second hope, the jacuzzi in the bathroom... that was the worst thing when the water that we tried to prepare for a bath had came out all mud yellow. We suddenly called the reception.. guess what they said...

"It's the normal thing here. All safe. Every room is the same"

Okay then, the yellow water might have come from the ground water, the sand... but is really coldplay yellow.. we were not gonna use it.. Our 2 night stays have become staying in the Penthouse Shower Suite.
Just popped up while I'm writing here that the water from the sink and the shower didn't look yellow at all... Possibly, it's their method to save water from the guest using Jacuzzi..

Good luck everyone.

Being aware of such a good deal price, fantastic natural surrounding, nice pool and friendly people, I was happy most of the time at this boutique resort. And so, I will keep the picture of that jacuzzi filled out with yellow water in my pocket. Hope they fix it soon.

Tips:
- There are rounds of shuttle bus going to another of their resort in Chaweng
- Let's take advantage of relaxing ourselves admiring the beach at their beachfront boutique resort too (It's really nice!!)
- 10-20 minutes walk from the villas to the main road and another 5-10 minutes just across from the main road to the Maenam beach. (See the photos) There's a restaurant there, too.

Remind
- Yup, yellow water jacuzzi
