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)
