"luxurious resort with the most amazingly friendly staff!!!"
From the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out we were made to feel very special, we stayed in one of the luxury villas, simply spectacular, very clean, everything you need, pool was amazing, well stocked fridge with reasonably priced drinks. The staff really make the difference here, very attentive without being over powering, just the right balance, we stayed over Christmas and new year and attended the New Year's Eve bash (meal and entertainment free and cocktails on arrival) what an event, professionally organised but again staff couldn't do enough, my wife and daughter are both vegetarian and though there were many buffet options, the staff still prepared a separate meal when this was determined. A fantastic place in a beautiful resort ideal if you want to kick back and relax.. thrice daily shuttle buses to the sister boutique hotel are laid on free of charge and reasonably priced taxis available to bophut beach can be easily organised.. I would recommend this villa and will likely return
"A wonderfully refreshing family hols"
Stayed at the 3 bedroom villa with pool from 10-15 dec with 3 teenaged children. 2 wings - living/dining n bedrooms. Villa was large, clean and tidy. Bedrooms were spacious and super comfy, with a good size family room for tv and games too! The pool provided much dipping fun for us, while the larger hotel pool brought us some exercise and Swimming joys. The hotel’s staff were helpful, friendly and smiley always, adding the special welcoming and homely touch to our stay. Thank you to all!! Tried both the Thai and oil massage at their in house Kirin Spa - skillful and recommended. A half hour free was given when we booked for 1 hour, so we had 90mins all in. Breakfast menu had a good standard simple mix of local and western fare. Hotel is located on a slight uphill, and some 10mins walk away from the main road. So it’s quiet and quaint within the premises and that’s one big attraction point for us! There r some food choices on the walk to the main road and along it too. A weekly Thursday walking street at Maneum Road (opened 5pm-11pm) offered much to snack too! Used the complimentary shuttle service provided to get to Chaweng beach, and 2.5hours is just enough time for us to look around and have our lunch there. Glad the hotel provided this shuttle! Overall We had an excellent relaxing, refreshing and filling (food, fun, family time, laughs etc) stay, mostly within the hotel/villa premises! Thank you, kirikayan! We’d love to return for another holiday!
"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.
