Kirikayan Boutique Resort
Ranked #43 of 103 Hotels in Chaweng
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 7, 2010

We have just returned from a week here and would love to go back in the future. If you like a small boutique hotel in a perfect setting, you will love this hotel. It is brand new and has the best location in Chaweng at the far south end of the beach which is quiet with easy access to all the action. The hotel's service and marketing are very good and they have promotion such as happy hour for both drinks and massages in the open air cabanas near the beach with prices comparable with those on the beach. The rooms are modern and have all you need and we particularly liked the shower/wet room. The only pitfall would be if you end up staying on the right hand side of the hotel (building 1) as there is some construction next door, but we stayed on the left hand side (building 2) which is perfect. We have also stayed at the Buri Rasa which is another boutique hotel and now we would be spoilt for choice if we went back as to which to stay at again as both are very good. In conclusion, loved it and only sorry to have to leave.

Pros
Fabulous, modern, quirky room with big comfy bed
Great TV
Funky bathroom
Great position on Chaweng beach
Clean white beach with crystal clear water
Lots of beach lounges and umbrellas
Friendly, attentive staff
Free transfer service to their other hotel (we stayed in Kirikayan Mae Nam also)
Cons
The room decoration was over the top - fun for one night but would have driven us crazy if we had stayed too long - eg bed only accessible from one side, bathroom long and skinny, way too much stuff and cushions everywhere, tiny verandah not really big enough to sit out on.
Restaurant view over garden is beautiful but looking out onto the building site or busy road was not.
Building work next door is a bit annoying when you are trying to realx around the pool.
Pool looked cloudy and uninviting so only swam at the beach
Kirikayan was the most expensive of the 7 hotels we stayed in at Ko Samui A $165 per night including breakfast whick was just ok.
I think we would return because of the beach and position in Chaweng - plenty of restaurants and shops close by but not too noisy or busy :)

We stayed here for three nights at the end of July and had an amazing time. The staff we're helpful, considerate and welcoming. We were upgraded for free to a room with a bath and we're given champagne and fruit on arrival...a fantastic way to start our honeymoon.

The pool was warm with a relaxed vibe, happy hour drinks were delicious and the beach was just beautiful.

We had breakfast each morning and had dinner there twice (once at the restaurant and once on the beach)...both times it was only us and one other couple. We thought the food was delicious and prices reasonable. The coconut creme brule was devine!

We hired a scooter across the road and found the guy to be very nice, honest and reliable.

Would recommend this resort to anyone and will be coming back for our first year anniversay!

My husband and I stayed for 8 nights at the Kirikayan Boutique resort.
From the moment we were collected from the airport the staff were brilliant. Bringing us cold towels in the car trip- and then on arrival at the hotel welcoming us with wonderful hospitality- fresh coconuts and flower laes.
The recently opened resort has lush gardens- beautifully lit at night too.
Our room was extremely spacious- and the bathroom divine!

The infinity pool looked out over the crystal clear Chaweng beach south- amazing!
There was happy hour twice a day- with beautiful cocktails to be sipped ;))
We LOVED sitting on the sun lounges by the pool facing the Ocean and just simply relaxing!

The staff were very polite and friendly. Always courteous and took extra care to remember what we liked etc....

The bathroom soaps/lotions etc... were just divine. Luxurious spa products with amazing smells.
Every night at turn down the housekeeper would light a scented burner- mainly to deter mossies- but it made the room smell so inviting.

The free wireless in the rooms always worked briliiantly too!

Whilst the Breakfast was plentiful- and if I had to pick a fault on this glorious hotel- it would be that it lacked the finesse of the rest of the hotel. We certainly ate like kings every day- so I am not by any means leaving a negative comment- as the food was overall beautiful.

There was a DVD station to borrow DVD's from for your in room home theatre.

Having never previously been to Koh Samui- I was apprehensive about staying in a hotel in Chaweng- as Chaweng itself had been likened to Patong in Phuket. I was after a relaxing holiday without the hustle and bustle- this hotel was tucked away at the south end of Chaweng- close to plenty of restaurants/shops etc... but out of the Thick of the crowds.

We also took the free shuttle up to the other Kirikayan in the hills of Maenam- while also very beautiful- I am glad (for location reasons) that we chose The Chaweng property.

Kirikayan was purely and blissfully amazing. I look forward to returning again soon!

Just returned from a ten night stay and have to say what a wonderful hotel. We stayed at the Sheraton Grande in Bangkok prior to going to Kirikayan and the level of service was every bit as good as the Sheraton.

Staff go the extra mile to ensure you have a good holiday. We arrived to be welcomed with ice cold towels, flowers and an ice cold coconut. One night we returned at midnight and had a problem with the air con, it was fixed immediately. The reception staff were excellent booking trips for us ect. King the pool boy was very attentive making sure you always had drinks ect.

The spa has a happy hour where the massages ect are discounted making them just about the same price as the beach, they were very good. The happy hour applies to the pool bar as well, make sure you try the mango, honey and ice cream smoothie, it's delicious.

When we arrived, we were given 25% off vouchers for the hotel's restaurant. We tried it one night. The food was on par with all the other restaurants we tried, it just lacks the spectacular beach setting.

The rooms are well equipped, cutting edge design, candles are even supplied for that romantic atmoshere. The location of the hotel is perfect, way down the south end of Chaweng. There are 7/11s, laundries and pharmacies ect just outside the hotel.
For really cheap and delicious thai food there is a restaurant across the road to the right of the hotel, it's opposite the Rose and Crown, no name just a sign with Thai Food, the food was lovely. Poppies is only a couple of doors down from the hotel, we ate there one night and have to agree with all other posters that this is the best restaurant on the island.

I can't think of any negatives regarding the hotel. It was just perfect.
