My partner and I went to Koh Tao for 12 nights in total, spending 7 nights here in the sunset fantasy (one with giant outdoor bath) and then 5 nights at Haad Tien. Despite other peoples negative comments about location we felt it was excellent, easy and pleasant walk to the action in Sairee for any normal fit person if you fancy a boozy night but also far enough away to be tranquil and relaxing. Wouldnt recc walking the dark road back at night though.
Nicely furnished clean spacious room and lovely private terrace, fun outside bathroom with giant bath to float naked in and have a cocktail!. Friendly attentive reception staff, very attentive and freindly waiter who was always super keen to please and smiley. The lady Thai chef/cook who's name I cannot remember (i think it was Boo!) is a HUGE asset to Amanjirah and the highlight of our stay..... we had several meals there and all where outstanding .... most delicious curries on the island, western food also excellent.... and the banana fritters where "the best ever" (we also stayed at Haad Tien resort which as a resort is triple the price but Amanjirah food was much better). Views were beautiful and the pools whilst quite small very nice & refreshing ..... the only negative of our stay was unfortunatley something went wrong with the main pool and it turned green and murky overnight and had to be drained / fixed / re-filled so was out of action for 3 days of our trip which was a shame as our room over looked this pool. But hey it couldnt be helped, they tried to fix as soon as they could considering they were carting the new water in on a truck ...... and the other smaller pool was working fine.
The smaller cheaper rooms looked much smaller/darker and not in the best location but then you get what you pay for and we felt Amanjirah was overall good value for money and would def reccommend. I just hope the cook is appreciated/rewarded by the owners as she will get poached by a bigger expensive resort with all the compliments she's getting on tripadvisor!!
