I can highly recommend the Kirikayan, the staff are fantastic, the rooms luxurious and the restaurant delicious.
Word of warning, if arriving by ferry, the taxi mafia are shocking on Koh Samui, and will not turn on their meters; Nonetheless, don't get the cheaper Songthow for 70-baht per person to the resort: They will drop you in the main road with all your luggage, and an uphill 10 minute walk in the scorching sun will not do a lot for your mood, go with the taxi.
When we arrived, hot sweating and irritated, we were greeted with a cool drink and cold handtowels, and the staff checked us in as we sat down in the breeze of the fans.
Ask about recommended things to do in the area, we were only in Koh Samui 2 nights, the first night we just ordered room service and watched their free in-house dvds (a collection of about 200 movies). We did a Thai Cooking Course with Siam Kitchen cooking school, Khun Sont showed us the market and we cooked our 4 dishes, un-missable.
Second night we were driven in for free by the hotel to Chaweng, dropping us off at the requested 'Bar Ice' ice bar, then walked down to the main strip, had delcicious mexican for tea, then saw 'Starz Caberet', a free ladyboy caberet show... Do read the reviews on TA, it's a daunting idea but it's not to be missed, brilliant! We missed out on Soi Green Mango and the scene there, by then we were spent :)
I'd highly recommend the Kirikayan, for your own self contained apartment, a home away from home.
