“Beautiful and romantic”
Reviewed 23 May 2011

We stayed for 2nights in the sunset fantasy deluxe room
it was gorgeous

we got picked up in sairee and taken to the resort which is a little up in the hills with an AMAZING view from one of the pools, we then had our bags taken to our rooms and greeted with green tea

the room was huuuge with a gorgeous bed and large bathoom with a private dip pool in our outdoor bathroom which could fit more than 2 people in! it was beautifully decorated with robes and slippers provided, there was also a HUGE flatscreen tv and dvd player in the room with loads of channels to keep everyone entertained
our room was cleaned everyday and bedding and towels changed when we were at the pool
it had a small balcony at our front door with large comfy chairs and a table which we ate at in the evenings as they can bring your meals to your room

the food was good, the thai green curry was amazing

you can borrow a little net book laptop as well for free
there were 2 pools if a good size and loungers to relax on

we did have to keep our curtains closed on the side where the pool was as even though we were at the top you could still see into the room from the pool but this didnt bother us keeping them closed

thank you it was a lovely short stay to refresh ourselves it was lovely

My husband and I stayed at Amanjirah in May in the Sunset Penthouse. The room is quite large and truly stunning. The decor and design of the room was also done beautifully. We found the staff to be very nice and helpful. A couple of the staff did not speak English but the ladies at the reception and the server at the restaurant spoke it very well, so we never had any issues.

The pools areas were nice and relaxing the back pool has an amazing view! It was very nice to sunbathe there. Our favorite part of Amanjirah though was definitely the tree top terrace where food and drinks are served. The atmosphere is so chill and relaxed with hammoks, good music and triangle pillows to lounge on. It was very romantic having dinner as the sun began to set.

Our only complaint was that the bed was very hard and it didn't make for the best sleep. I'm sure with time though that Amanjirah will improve on this. Other than that this was truly a beautiful place to stay and probably the best accomodation on Koh Tao.

This hotel has the most wonderful view on the koh tao sea from the second pool (smallest one). The sunset is not to be missed as it is very romantic and photogenic.
The room is decorated with taste, the only comment is that the pool view room's bathroom doesn't have a sealed roof which means that mosquitoes and geckos can get in anytime. During the night, going to the bathroom was like an expedition to us.
The restaurant is very charming, the Pad Thai is one of the best i've ever tasted in thailand.
The staff are polite and helpful. The pick-up from the pier service is really good too in a luxurious 4X4.
There's no access to the beach from the hotel since it's located on the hillside of koh tao. More transfers from the hotel to saree beach would be really appreciated as there were only two transfers back to the hotel, 11:15am and 17:00 which are not sufficient.
Other than that, we enjoyed our stay in this charming hotel with a beautiful view. The garden view and main pool are great too.
The free wifi is really a plus, we enjoyed this service very much during our stay.

Right from the get go Amanjirah excelled at making my stay the most rewarding and comfortable. Lovely smiles, great service - a real family feeling.

My room was immaculately designed with many neat little touches and the pools were a joy.

Wouldn't hesitate for a second go be back.

Thank you for your kind words. We do our best every day to improve. Our resort is very small as we always planned to keep it like a small family retreat with a range of rooms to cater for different budgets.

I've been to Koh Tao a bunch of times, always staying in different places. This has been my all time favourite though. The view is amazing, the pool is nice, the food os great and you will never experience a more beautiful sunset. The staff could be better at speaking English, but they're nice and welcoming.

I would stay at Amanjirah Resort any day!

Amanjirah is such a cool place. We were picked up at the pear and after a short ride , we saw Amanjirah. Just looking made a lot of promisses . The inchecking was fast and the service was in top all our stay. My room was clean and so nice. I really liked the style of decorating. Amanjirah is built on the cliffs up high and the wiew is astonishing. Every where you look around its grean and there is a lot of flowers. They have two pools and you can just enjoy yourself and relaxe. If you want to go to the small town, you can just ask for the car to take you. I have been coming to Koh Tao for ten years now, and this place " Amanjirah " is excellent, maybe the best resort i have stayed on. And i forgot to mention the food , the chef is really good.
If you want to visit Koh Tao, you have to choose Amanjirah for your stay.

It is a beautiful and quiet place for stay. Nice and clean room with good facility for staying. People in hotel are nice.

However, the location is too far from core area. It causes inconveniency. By the way, price of menu is a little expensive.

Thank you for your fair review. Our location is on purpose a little a way from everything. Still it is possible to walk down to Sairee beach comfortably in about 10 minutes and taxis can take you back nearly all day and night or you can use our scheduled shuttles in our luxury car. We do disclose the location clearly on our website including with a map.
