Large 4 bed villa with private pool in Kirikayan luxury Villa resort, Maenam
About Monique Webb
We are a British couple who love to travel and we fell in love with the beautiful Thai island of Ko Samui over 15 years ago when we travelled with our young family around Thailand.
Monique Webb purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Monique Webb chose Mae Nam
We discovered this brand new resort when it was still in it's construction stage so were able to choose the plot and style of villa which best suited our family. We also loved the fact that we were part of a beautiful resort in the hills behind the village of Maenam so we could enjoy all the facilities here in this tranquil setting. We feel that we are in the jungle listening to the birds and the geckos but only a 10 min stroll to the stunning Maenam beach.
What makes this Villa unique
We feel very secure due to the fact that the resort provide 24hr security with a guard who sits directly outside our villa. A short stroll next door to reception (also open 24hrs) allows us to book taxis, day trips, scooters etc and room service can be provided from the resort restaurant, together with stunning Thai buffet nights around the resort pool. Whether you prefer a private villa to spend time with your friends and family or to be part of a resort with all the benefits that has to offer, here you have the choice of both. If you like to be able to walk to local restaurants and bars in the evening, Maenam village is just a 15 min walk away. If you prefer the bright lights and crowds in Chaweng, a 20 min taxi or tuk tuk ride will take you here. We are also just a short drive away from the brand new Wharf centre in Fisherman's Village, for the most popular beachfront dining experiences in Samui.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
A beautiful villa just far enough away from the main beach road for race and quiet. The villa was ideal for two families of 4, with a lovely separate kitchen and lounge building. Private pool was lovely as was hotels larger pool. Staff were wonderful, particularly the security lady just outside the villa. Would recommend renting a car for a couple of days to see the whole island, but loads of restaurants and a great beach within 10 mins stroll.
Family 2 adults 3 children
Private and very spacious. Lovely private pool. We also used the resort pool, good depth and size surrounded by trees.
Rooms are huge! Many bathrooms.
We really enjoyed staying at Mae Nam Beach.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review, it is great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay both in Maenam beach and in our villa ! It would be a pleasure to welcome you back one day Regards, Monique
Secluded villa on the outskirts of Mae Nam
We had a marvelous stay in this Kirikayan Villa which consisted of 4 bedrooms and separate living areas. Private pool was sensational and kept clean by the twice weekly cleaning. Our host Monique was very helpful with her lists of places to eat, visit and many other helpful hints. The property is slightly out of Mae Nam and a car or scooter rental is a bonus but definitely not essential. We walked regularly into the main eating areas and back again. Highly recommend this property and the quieter vibe of this beautiful area of Koh Samui.
Thank you for this lovely review Chris, we are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your stay in our villa. It was a pleasure speaking with you and hearing how all 8 of you had such a memorable stay in Samui. I am glad my recommendations lists were of use to you all :) Best wishes, Monique
Lovely villa for a family holiday
Our Kirikayan villa was a great place to spend a fortnight with 3 generations of the family.There was plenty of space for the nine of us (6 adults and 3 small boys) The bedroms are spacious and airy and the bathrooms are well appointed.We used the living room to cool down when outside became too hot! The air conditioning works really well throughout the villa.
We made good use of the villa pool and also the beautiful big pool belonging to the hotel next door, which has tremendous views across to the forest. We also ate at the hotel restaurant a few times and ordered excellent takeaways from a small road side cafe nearby.
The villa is well placed for Maenam Beach, very clean, with lovely warm water and splendid sunsets.
Monique provided all sorts of useful information regarding facilities within the villa and in the area, and answered our queries very promptly. We would certainly recommend Kirikayan villa for a family holiday!
Dear Hilary, Thank you for this lovely review, it was so nice to hear how much your large family enjoyed their holiday in our villa. I know you had 2 extremely hot weeks so it is good to hear the air conditioning kept up to speed and kept you all cool. Thank you for choosing our villa for your vacation, we would love to welcome you back one day. Monique
Kirikayan Villa Review
We really enjoyed our stay at this Villa. The owner was fabulous and offered valuable assistance on places to go and things to do on the island. The villa itself was clean and very spacious, perfect for two families. Location is great to with the added advantage of being able to use the resort facilities.
Thank you Candice for your kind review. So happy to hear how much you all enjoyed your stay in our villa and that you also enjoyed using the Kirikayan resort facilities. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back one day.
Very functionable for groups
Wonderful Villa! Very functionable with the living area away from the bedrooms. Any issues were dealt with in a timely matter. The hotel restaurant was nice, but expensive. Happy hour (12-2 & 4-6) is 2 for 1 and a nice time to go, but the service was extremely slow. Tons of restaurants in the area and the kitchen is also very functionable for cooking when you get sick of restaurant food. The only con was that the shower upstairs kept going from cold to hot to cold etc. We stopped using it and just used the downstairs shower. It wasn’t a problem and I never mentioned it to Monique while I was there. She is in England, but the Villa takes care of the issues. We were a group of 3 people in their early 20’s and 4 in their 50’s and everyone had a blast. Definitely recommended!
Thank you Bruce for taking the time to write this review, I am pleased you all found the villa worked so well for your party and that you found plenty of choice for eating out within walking distance.
So pleased you all enjoyed your stay and you are welcome back anytime .
