Kirikayan Luxury Pool Villas & Spa Hotel, Maenam

The Kirikayan Luxury Pool Villas & Spa Hotel, Maenam has only 29 rooms, but the smallest room or rather villa starts at 100 square meters, the Kirikayan Villa. With 600 square meters, the Honeymoon Pool villa does a god job as well with being spacious.

The resort is the sister hotel of the Kirikayan Boutique Resort in Chaweng, with twice a day free shuttles between the two resorts.

The Maenam Villas are not near the ocean but the Chaweng boutique resort is. The first shuttle departs at 11am. At Maenam Villas you're a little bit away from the village of Maenam but it's well worth checking out, especially the Thursday evening walking street event or the many restaurants available.

Very good value for a 4 star hotel, well worth checking out.

Villa Nalinnadda, Lamai

The Villa Nalinnadda, Lamai is located a bit South of Lamai and is a small, very friendly and family run hotel. With only 9 rooms and the quality they deliver, it's by all means a real boutique hotel.
The rooms are comfortable and have relaxing furnished terrace areas. With two walls consisting almost completely of glass, the rooms are bright and and nice a great view over the ocean, just in front of the hotel.
The beach in front of the hotel is not that great for swimming but there's a lovely pool to enjoy and lay back at.
For outside food options, you will have to make your way to Lamai itself, where there are plenty of options, the Villa Nalinnadda, Lamai is relatively isolated and not many food or shopping options are nearby. It makes for a great relaxing time though.

Dara Samui Beach Resort & Spa Villa in Chaweng

The Dara Samui Beach Resort & Spa Villa in Chaweng is a fairly new Resort, being build in 2005 and 2006 and it was opened in 2007 for the middle luxury market segment. It was built in a 'Lanna' Northern Thai style with authentic details such as real gold leaf layer pictures on doors and wall murals. With great eye for detail, the result of all of this is a resort that uniquely represents the best of ancient Siam with all modern conveniences integrated to a harmonious concept.

Besides this, it's 70 rooms are located near all the hustle and bustle of downtown Chaweng, with all the shopping, dining and night time conveniences, whilst still being able to offer a quiet environment once you are inside the resort premises.

The resort offers two dining options with the Dara Serene, near the sea front and the Lanna Restaurant facing the lively Chaweng Beach road.

Dara means star and I can recommend staying in this comfortable resort and enjoy the beautiful Chaweng Beach.
