We travelled to villa 101 from KL, Malaysia to spend Christmas and New Year.
The villa as a perfect size for the family and a great layout. My 2 young kids slept upstairs in twin beds, in the room opposite, through the HUGE bathroom area, slept a friend. Upstairs has a little fridge so you don't have to faff about getting downstairs and through into the kitchen area at night.
We were in the master bedroom which was downstairs which had a ensuite and my mother in law was in the other room with her ensuite.
The living area and kitchen are in a separate area (sala) which is great as everyone can clatter about it you're having a lie in - you hear nada!
Fully equipped kitchen, internet, AC, lounge area, eating area, Tv and DVD and a cleaner every 3 days - what else could you ask for?!
The pool is fab! Many an afternoon was spent at the villa pool, lounging about and sitting in the little eating area. Super amount of carp swimming about.
Wonderful butterflies and dragonflies and it's so quiet.
We used the complex DVDs (just hired them out for no fee) when it rained for 1 day - the only day. And we used the gym and the swimming pool which makes a nice change. The food was ok at the complex, quite pricey but for the first night and first morning it was ideal. I jumped in a cab and went to Tesco and got a 2 weeks supply of stuff.
We kind of hung out at the pool and then walked down to the beach, which is just a 10 min walk down hill. Super easy.(and theres is a family mart with an ATM) The beach is great. We spent most of our days at Moonhut beach (Maenam beach) as it was very quiet and not too touristy. The view is amazing.
There's a little orange cafe just down from the villa which we spent a lot of time in. The food is GREAT. So tasty!
If we go back to Koh Samui, we'll certainly be hiring from Monique again.
We stayed at the villa for 10 days in August. The villa is fantastically equipped for all of your needs – a real home from home. The outside area is spacious and landscaped beautifully and the private pool is a real treat. The villa provides total privacy but within the setting of the very impressive Kirikayan boutique resort. The use of the main pool was great as its quite large, has a stunning backdrop and perfect for lengths. Monique, the owner was so helpful and always available if needed. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the island and left loads of recommends for places to see and do and where the best beaches could be found. We discovered quite a few of these and all were great, particularly Mae Nam that is 5 min drive away. We hired a car which was cheap and easy to do and driving around was a great way to experience everything that the island has to offer. We were a family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers. The villa was really spacious for us and I would also recommend the villa for 2 families as the is perfectly set up for this arrangement. We had such a great time staying at the villa and discovering beautiful Samui - can’t wait to go again!!
We were a party of seven aged from 2 to 70 years and stayed at the villa for two weeks in August/September 2016. We found the villa and resort more than met our expectations and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner and the staff of the resort went out of their way to help our holiday and nothing was too much trouble. We found a hire car an advantage in exploring the island and for major food replenishment. It was a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday and we look forward to returning next year.
A beautiful villa that was a perfect setup for our 2 families of 4. The villa is very private to lounge around the pool, but has the resort access if that is what you want. It is very convenient to go to the lobby to have them arrange a driver/taxi for anything that you want to do and there was a handful of good restaurants that we walked to. The beach is reachable by walking, but be prepared for a longer walk, which we didn't mind. It was also nice to jump back in the pool after the walk back. The kitchen was well stocked and the rooms were also very comfortable. The owner is very nice and shared many great recommendations for restaurants/sites to visit and quick to reach out to ensure that the accommodations are good. It was the perfect balance of privacy, but ability to go out to the busier places around the island with ease. Definitely recommended
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.
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 brand new 'Wharf' centre at Fishermans Village is Samui's newest venue with exclusive beach front dining and fabulous shopping opportunities. Samui's most popular night market is held here every Friday evening and is not to be missed.Just a short tuk tuk drive away !
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.
