Great place, directly at the beach at Choeng Mon.
Friendly staff. Nothing is to much to ask.
We stayed in a wonderful bungalow.
Very spacious and clean. Ac and fridge at the room. Everyday free water supplied. Breakfast is available.
Diner is great.

Super service!

AVOID' DO NOT BOOK THIS PLACE !!
You are welcomed by a pack of scabby dogs that bark all night and chase the wild cats.
The staff are incompetent with poor or no English spoken and there seems to be no leadership or manager.
The whole place is old and tied with very little or no maintenance and it smells.
There are far better and newer places to stay.
MOST IMPORTANTLY we had money STOLEN from our safety deposit box on the last night of our stay. A large amount of euros !!!! This had to have been done by a member of staff because the room was entered with a key and they used the override key for the safe (or they new my code). The cash was inside an envelope in a wallet that contained passports and credit cards amongst other things but nothing else was stolen. ( very clever).
I did not realise until I was 340km away. It has been reported to the police.
Do not booked this place, it was a horrible place to stay with nothing to offer after some off the other places we had stayed in so our travels.
Being robbed at this most substandard resort was horrible ..

We waited a bit too long with making booking and we were left with limited choice so Kirati seemed a good option. It is ok but think twice before booking it.
1. If you are not a family with very small children do not go there- Kirati is in Choeng Mon and generally dead - nothing to do there. Consider if it is worth going to Chaweng or Lamai each time you want to do something or see nightlife in the evening.
2. If the tide is high the beach is disappearing and what's left is taken by restaurants or other tourists or is in shadow because of the trees. We were there in December and the tide were high almost every day and was only widening after dark..
3. There is no swimming pool or a ground when you can rest if the beach is too crowded/windy/ in shadow because of the trees - the only little space is usually taken by the staff who dries towels there.
4. If you don't ask you will never know that the hotel has beach towels(although they have seen better days)
5. Rooms are nice and spacious although cleanliness is inconsistent- we have accidentally spilled tea on the bed and in the evening the quilt's cover was just turned on the other side..
6. We ended up buying our own soap as when the one provided run out it was not replaced until the day before we were leaving. Coffee and tea were replaced daily
7. Cleaning the room takes ages- usually the room was not cleaned till 3-4pm
8. The air condition is placed on the wall next to the bed so if you turn it on it blows the cold air on you and it is very loud
9. The safe box is very small- nothing bigger than the tablet won't fit plus it is not fixed so if there is a robbery thieve could just take it.
10. Internet is VERY bad.
11. Do not use their restaurant- it is overpriced, portions are small and not tasty. We had once breakfast there- each set costs 220BHT.Even though in the menu it was saying that it would be accompanied by glass of juice and 2 cups of coffee/tea we had to specifically ask for it. First we were given the coffee with nicely warmed milk, for the other cup(after asking) we were firstly not given milk and the they brought cold one. Juice was from the box- the worst I've ever drunk( in Thailand the juice in boxes are usually not good at all- taste is very artificial). Strange as the fruits are very cheap and available everywhere. portions was small(I had porridge with fruits)The second time we went for lunch - as we were tired of Thai food we ordered spaghetti and each of us had a drink. Spaghetti was served cold and the sauce(tomato) was disgusting- not sure what it was it is the dish that is usually quite hard to go wrong. Portions were tiny. For the drink juices from the box were used- the worst one I had in Samui. For food use different restaurants in town or go to the Captain's cabin- also placed on the beach but food is tasty and much cheaper.
12. No fitness center- it is not something I can't live without but the only one cross trainer was standing in the reception..
13. There is nobody at the reception after 10pm - not even security...we felt generally safe there but if you have question or need assistance- it would have to wait till next day.
14. Doors to our room(we stayed in main building) were very difficult to close as the dumpiness caused them not too fit to well to the frame.

Generally it is not a bad place- rooms are quite nice but annoyingly there are plenty of little things that are missed(some I've mentioned above) that are spoiling the pleasure of staying there. Staff is nice and generally helpful and you can get a nice massage just at the beach but think twice. We are young couple and we weren't expecting luxury but just consider everything. We will be booking a different hotel next time.

Clean and luxurious room in the hotel, was the biggest room in our stay in the islands. The beach is also the most beautiful with warm shallow waters. Had no bad experiences here. Only peaceful bliss at a very good price. About 50 steps on to the private beach.

We did not stay here but ate at the restaurant, the food was unremarkable, overpriced and portion size was small and did not match the description, management more interested in chatting amongst themselves than dealing with customers, much better options on the beach available.

To be noted, we came during the "low season".
1- We were received by a herd of sick mongrel dogs who pooped everywhere in the hallway, and barked at night.
2- Extremely poor service and almost no attention given to the guests in the beach or at the bar.
3- We were woken up on the first morning by the garbage being burnt in the "garden". Our swimsuits were drying in the balcony and still have a smell of grilled trash.
4- The beach is nice in a general way but quite polluted, very shallow and swampy at touch when you walk on the shore (lots of dead jelly fishes, rocks, busted shells underneath the sand). It is quite a deception because you can't really enjoy swimming in it.
5- Rooms are ok but the hotel in general is in an austere condition. Isn't worth the shot, there are much better places on the Island.

We have stayed in Choeng Mon several times and wanted to stay there at the start and end of our visit to Koh Samui and surrounding islands.We tried all the hotels on the beach and either they would not let a family of 4 stay in one room or the price was hugely inflated. We found the Kirati via the internet and they confirmed they had family rooms. The rooms were huge and had one double and two single beds, the rooms were very clean and just set back from the beach. The top floor rooms have a view of the bay. We had breakfast included. All food was excellent. You can have your meals with a seaview or actually on the beach, bliss! We lost my son's cuddly toy of which they have found and are sending back to us.
The Kirati was difficult find via the web and to book directly. I suggest they update their website because they are a little gem waiting to be discovered.

Room Tip: Family Room are huge and excelleny value.
