Reviewed 15 May 2013

I travel pretty well none stop and am in hotels for half my life but this one is special.

We have just returned from a totally relaxing and eye opening five days here.

Firstly to reiterate the point made by other reviewers, Anjit and his staff are masters of their craft.Never to obtrusive but always available and happy to deal with any requirement that will make your stay better.In terms of accommodation the suite we had was stunning.The room huge,the layout well thought out and the outside good size plunge pool a blessing.The room was immaculate throughout and one of those few rooms where you look forward to getting back to your retreat as it really is more akin to a luxury apartment than a mere room.

The grounds and pool area also are very hard to fault ,Beautifully maintained,a sublime pool layout excellent lunch and dinner dining outside with a setting to die for.

Even on venturing out of the hotel they cannot do enough to help.Mention that you are venturing out and immediately you are offered the free hotel transport into town and asked to call when you are done and you will be collected all included and again operated perfectly.

The food in the restaurant was fabulous every time and on two occasions when we were due to shop we ended up having one quick drink at the beach bar and staying at the hotel for the evening instead to drink overlooking the stunning beach and eat under the stars.

In house massage was great as was pretty well everything else....Its rare that a place lives up to the hype but this one deserves to....thanks again and we will be back!!

Room Tip: all rooms here are stunning but if you want it all go for the beach front

It was amassing day in Ammatara Pura Pool Villa. We stayed only for one night to selebrate birthday and pretty sure that will back really soon.
The resident manager Arijit was very kind, service was also excellent. We had a surprise as a couple of glasses of sparkling wine and cake for birthday dinner.
Our room had a beautiful view on the ocean and a nice private pool.
Design of this villa gives the filling that you are in a unique and original place where Raj lives. This Paradise located only in 5 minutes by foot from the small Lamai center!
If you are in Samui- go to Lamai in Ammatara Pura for having real relax and feeling that you are special!)

We stayed for 7 nights at the Ammatarapura Hotel, at a Sea View Pool Villa.
Location: Near (5 min walking distance) the Lamai Beach central street but very quiet at the same time.
The room was excellent: A lot of space, a very nice view, clean, we enjoyed very much the really private pool (protected our neighbors had no visual contact), very large terrace (as shown in the photos). Fast internet access also provided free of charge.
The service was also excellent; the people at the reception were very helpful.
We booked also the Thai cooking event: We cooked a Papaya salad (Somtam Thai) and a Spicy Soup with prawns (Tom Yam Goong) and learned how to carve vegetables to create the typical Thai plate decorations. We asked them if we could buy the ingredients together with the chef and we went together to a local market, highly recommended if you are interested in the local cuisine.
Facilities of the hotel: The restaurant at the beach was very good; they also offer a 24h room service. The breakfast had a lot of choices.
There are a few umbrellas at the beach (enough since there are only 18 rooms). The beach itself is sandy, quiet and there is no tide.
They have also a small gym – it is “hidden” nearby the reception – ask if you would like to use it.
What they could improve?
Restaurant: The Thai food was excellent. However the focus seems to be on European dishes, why not offering more Thai gastronomy selection?
Activities: At the reception they offer some standard activities. Why not expending the offer to some more individualistic activities beyond the standard ones (like offering a local guide to give insights to the Thai culture etc.?)
Overall we spent some very nice days there. Highly recommended!!

have stayed in many 5 star hotels over the years and this one (so far) is the winner for me. Right from the start (when you arrive) you are made to feel very welcome. The place is very silent and peaceful, yet very close to the Lamai village where alternative restaurants are and of course the hotel is right on the beach. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very generously sized. The views (we had a sea view villa) are breathtaking ... But I think all of the 18 villas offer great views. The breakfast menu and selection was great too. The staff were very helpful (during our full 8 day stay) ... and I would like to personally thank the residential manager (Arijit), "Table" (Thai name Toh, bar supervisor) and Krit (food and beverage supervisor) for making our stay so special here. You could say that the location is only 95% perfect (small steep hill from Lamai village to the hotel) ... but there are 2 perfect solutions to get round this: 1) you walk 5-10 minutes along the beach and you are there (the romantic way!) or 2) The hotel runs a "tuk tuk" (open thai taxi) service where they will take you to any place in Lamai and pick you up from any place in Lamai (the convenient / lazy way). This "tuk tuk" service is 100% free of charge, and there are no waiting times as they will pick you up or drop you off at whatever time you want want them to. Now that's what I call going the extra mile. And also, I would say it is good that there is a small hill there ... as this shields the hotel from any potential noise that could be coming from Lamai village. Perfect! Get ready to be spoilt at the Ammatara hotel in Lamai, in every way immaginable. The staff will go out of their way to make your stay special. I could not fault it, even if I tried to. PS I love the different sweets they put on your bed every night - nice touch too.

Room Tip: There are only 18 (very beautiful!) villas here ... all offer very good views, private rooms and all...

It's not even fair to call this place a hotel, it is far more than that. Ammatarra Pura is amazing, it's the perfect location, near to shops and restaurants (but no noise) and also close to the sea. It could not have been better, we will definitely be returning...and may be bringing some friends so we can show off this jewel.

The staff were very attentive, an army of them dropped in everyday to polish the window and make everything look brand new!

Food was good, swimming pool was extravagant, but well used by us, and the overall feel to the place was very special...I still can't think how we can top it, if we go somewhere else, no joke!

Room Tip: Ask for the sea view villa, we had room 305 and the one next to us also had a great view.
