I am coming to KIR every 2-3 months over the last 5 years, so can say have seen several generations of staff and management. Still the atmosphere is great and once there you feel that all troubles are far away and you can concentrate on something “serious” , like checking what kind of bird is waking you up every morning,...

We had six laid back days at this gentle, spacious resort and it was an idyllic experience. The staff are welcoming, attentive to guests' requirements and kind. We stayed in Villa 5 - very comfortable, cooled by ceiling fans and open to a beautiful vista of lawns, banyan trees, palms and the pristine beach. The view of the islands of... More

What a perfect place - great atmosphere, great style and all very 'un fussed'. An extremely relaxing place with the best view I have ever enjoyed from any hotel pool.

The location and the beach is first class. We spent a week there. The villas are obviously constantly kept updated and renovated and we got a recently renovated one (# 2). Since the buildings are "open" you have frequent animal visitors but the mosquito net keeps them away and this is part of the island experience. Room quality and service... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our villas are built in the original Andaman Sea - gypsy style which is optimal for comfort and for the environment. We have used unique local resources with a traditional background while still maintaining, if not surpassing, all modern standards. The mangrove palm leaf roofs of our villas breathe and do not store heat, and air conditioners are definitely not needed.All villas have an undisturbed, spectacular sea view of the famous Phang Nga Bay and can be opened up to the stars at night - and in the morning the rising sun shines onto the beds. ... more   less
