I am usually someone who prefers to stay in hotels but the tripadvisor reviews of this villa convinced me to give it a try. I was really glad that we chose to stay here. The villa is stunning, the location is great as Mae Nam beach is way less overrun and dodgy as Cha Weng is.

The villa totally met our expectations and more. We were 2 families (4 adults, 3 kids) and the house layout was ideal. Having the resort facilities (pool, gym, restaurant, taxi service, dvd library etc) in 1 min walking distance was great. The big resort pool is set in the most beautiful jungle setting, overlooking the green hills and palm trees. Lovely morning swim! Monique took good care of us, responding quickly by email to any questions that arose during our stay. Walking distance to the beach is 20 min, but we mostly took a cab (5 min). Cab ride to Chaweng is about 30-40 min in rush hour. 20 min at night. We have to recommend the small family restaurant 300m down the road. Delicious food and super cheap. We did a lot of takeaways from that place. Try the golden bags! We can definitely recommend this villa for the big family or for 2 families. We would love to come back!
We spent 5 nights at this villa on our way back from a very busy trip to Australia and it was just what the doctor ordered. Lots of space with 4 huge bedrooms (there were 6 of us so no arguments about who got the best room) and a lovely private pool. The location is really peaceful and just a 10 minute walk from Maenam village and the beach.
The Kirikayan resort itself is beautiful and we spent a lot of our time just lazing by the big communal pool which has amazing views, and most of the time we seemed to have it all to ourselves !
I would recommend hiring a car if you are staying for longer than 5 days but we were just happy to relax here, having visited Samui and all the busy tourist spots before. There are some great places to eat in Maenam, either on the main street that leads down to the beach or on the beach itself (which is all lit up with fairy lights at night), and a 24 hr Family Mart at the bottom of the lane to pick up everyday supplies. The resort restaurant is just a few steps from the villa and ideal if you're feeling lazy with a mix of both thai and Italian food. They also serve breakfast here for all the resort guests although we preferred to make our own in the villa which has a full kitchen and all the equipment you need to self cater.
The owner sent the cleaners over twice during our stay and they spent at least 2 hours cleaning up after my very messy family making the place look spotless again , and that was not an easy job !
We had the perfect chill out here and I would recommend it for any families looking for a quiet villa with plenty of space to hang out with family or friends, but still close enough to the beach and bars etc.
Arrived in brilliant sunshine at Kirikayane The photos do no Justis to the wonderful tranquil atmosphere we found, The villa its self was striking, Beautifully decorated with everything you could need and more, Surrounded by a tropical forest we were swimming above the treetops in the adjoining hotel pool listening to the birds and monkeys calling to each other, Oh to be back there now, It is close to everywhere shops temples restaurants and not one bad meal,I want the banana and honey pancakes from the street sellers yum,Cant wait to return,What an adventure.
We chose this villa as it is part of a resort that had excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and it totally lived up to our high expectations. So many of the private villas are situated in isolated locations on dirt tracks, whereas this resort is a short walk from the beach and is set in beautiful tropical gardens with great views of the hills behind.
The villa itself is modern and tastefully decorated and the set up worked really well for our family. The staff at the resort were all eager to please and it was a big bonus being able to use the fabulous main pool which has the best view I have ever seen whilst swimming , and a daily happy hour at the swim up bar !
The extra upstairs lounge was great for the kids to have their own area for watching dvds from the free dvd library in reception next door, leaving the main lounge free for the adults.It was also very reassuring to have a 24 hr security guard sitting just outside the villa.
We decided to hire a car but there was a shuttle service operated by the hotel to Maenam beach where there are also some great little bars and restaurants.
Chaweng is about a 15 min drive away and is great to visit, but it was always good to come back to the peace and tranquillity of Kirikayan. We will definitely go back if we have the chance.
My family and I travelled to Thailand in October 2008 for our annual holiday. Having never experienced Thailand before I did not really know what to expect. I have to say that this Villa is amazing!! The Accomodation and facilities are nothing short of out of this world! The Villa itself is clean, tastefully decorated and with beautiful views from every window or balcony. It is located within a community of villas up in the hills about 1/2 a mile off the main road in Maenam with 24 hour security, Gym, Health Spa and a superb Restaurant. The villa has it's very own infinity pool which is cleaned every other day by the staff at Kirikayan who quite frankly can't do enough for you. We loved Kirikayan and cant wait to go back.
Our stay at Kirikayan was exactly as we expected, spacious, clean and beautifully decorated throughout, with outstanding views of the forest behind the villa.
The owners did warn us that the resort is not complete but this did not interfere with our stay.We were told by the staff at the resort that the main pool area and appartments will be complete by this summer.
The staff were extremely friendly, and having 24 hour security just a few feet from the villa meant that we could rest assure that our valubles were safe without the need of a safe deposit box.
Clean linen and towels were provided weekly and staff visited the grounds to maintain the pool and ground areas.
There is also a Kirikyan Beach club 2 minutes drive to Maenam beach where the staff provide a minibus service from the resort, beach towels ,and there's a great restaurant next to the beach hut which we highly recommend you try.
We spent most of our trip exploring different beaches but it was also lovely to spend time at the villa relaxing by the pool and ordering room service.
I have no hesitation in recommending this resort to our family and friends....
Located a short walk from Maenam beach, the villa is situated in an exclusive resort set amidst coconut palms in the hills above the village. There are numerous bars and restaurants nearby and the lively resort of Fishermans village and Chaweng are 5 mins and 15 mins drive away respectively.
The beach here is much quiter than Chaweng and is perfect for families, with breathtaking views of Ko Phangnan.
There is a large Tesco/Lotus supermarket 10 mins drive away,and numerous 7/11s within walking distance,
There are spectacular boat trips available to the marine park and neighbouring islands from Maenam and Bophut piers, offering kayaking and diving/snorkling opportunities.
Santiburi golf course is approximately 5 mins drive away .
There are a wealth of amenities in Kirikayan itself such as huge infinity pool, 'Sankala' restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner (room service and in villa dining available), gym, complimentary wifi, dvd library, business centre and full reception.
