"Friendly people and luxury place"
One week spent in the spacious apartment of the hotel near the pool with our family. The hotel is very nice with high standards, modern and clean, peaceful place surrounded by palme trees, you are in a nature and green, all you need to relax. The hotel provides free transport to the beach. The food is excellent, also the breakfast. We have appreciated very much the kindly staff, the service level is excellent. We can also recommend the wellness and massage services.
We booked 5nights at the Kirikayan. On our arrival we were welcomed and taken to our room which was very comfortable and large. The bed was hard and on our second day whilst having breakfast we were asked by management if our bed was comfortable, we said it was hard and they arranged for a mattress topper which helped immensely. We had a spa bath in our room but it didn't seem to work and when house keeping came in to make up our room we asked "how to turn it on" they checked and said it wasn't working and apologised. Before finishing making our bed she had arranged a technician to come in and 20mins later the spa was working. There is a large swimming pool and swim up bar, the daily breakfast is alright but not a large choice however, it does change a little day to day. It is about a 15min walk to get to Mae Nam beach but nothing to rave about. If your wanting a beach experience the resort provides a shuttle several times a day to their sister resort in Chaweng which also has the main strip of shopping, restaurants, bars and night clubs. This is a great resort for couples. Dinner at the restaurant was a nice experience but if you are looking for an absolutely fabulous dinning experience, The Boudouir French Restaurant is within walking distance they are closed Sunday and Monday and you must book in alternatively, the Fishermans Village is approximately 5klms east towards Chaweng. Full of great restaurants and markets.
"Enormous, amazing room with a beautiful view "
We hired a penthouse suite on our vacation in Koh Samui. We accidentally got dropped at the wrong hotel by the airport taxi so make sure if you stay here you tell them which kirikayan you are staying at as there are 2. We had our own private rooftop jacuzzi which had an amazing view of the hills. The room was huge and was more than enough room. The hotel staff are very polite and friendly. It is quite far from chaweng but has a shuttle that goes back and forth from its sister hotel there 4 times a day. We also hired a motorbike from the hotel for 500 baht including insurance and this was a great way to get around as taxis here are very expensive. All round great place to stay and would happily come back.
"Nice and Quiet Resort"
Stayed in two bed room pool villa. Far from tourist attractions. Free shutter service can transfer to their sister hotel by the sea. Local tours can be arranged within the resort. Breakfast is good but limited choice. Overall, good experience.
"No pride and dodgy electrics"
Well we stayed in a villa here and all seemed fine but then it rained, the power tripped but the company wasn't fussed. Later that day it rained some more and when my son walked up the steps to the pool he got a big electric shock. Turns out one of the maintenance guys had left a live wire unattached, we are just glad/lucky that it was 110v and not British 240v or we might have had a worse outcome. To top it off when we spoke to the manager he wasn't fussed as it was a private villa on their complex and not directly owned by them... note the maintenance was by their guy. View from the main pool was great but if you care about your kids I'd recommend you go to the Mantra Samui Which is where we went when we escaped.
