“Great Property”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Felt obliged to sign up for tripadvisor to post a review of this fantastic property I happened to stumble upon while diving in Koh Tao. Went there for a couple of cocktails with friends as I already had basic accommodation through a dive center. The property was so fantastic and the view so sublime that I decided to stay on the island a few more nights and luckily they had a vacant room.

The view really is phenomenal and the staff couldn't do enough for you in a non-luxury way. It's not stuffy or 5 star - just friendly and warm.

Will be back for next diving trip!

Stayed here for 2 nights and it is incredible. We had a large room with balcony and a perfect view of the sunset over the ocean. The pool and restaurant on site is fantastic and the staff were very helpful.

My wife and I stayed in aminjirah earlier in the year and it was simply an experience we want to forget. We came here on our delayed honeymoon and were expecting a far more satisfying experience. We arrived at the port of koh Tao and were met by a representative of the hotel. He informed us that he only had room in the car for 4 passengers so my wife and I had to sit in the baking sun while he took the rest to the resort-you must be aware of how many guests you are to pick up so account for that and arrange two cars!! Terrible start. We eventually arrived and were escorted to our room. We had a stunning view and were so taken aback by it that the appearance of the room only hit us soon after. It was extremely basic for the money we paid and we soon discovered we were not alone. My wife has quite a distinct fear of bugs-
which I admit isn't conducive to a holiday in Thailand-but we spent a week in a luxury resort in koh samui and had no indoor
encounters! We stumbled upon dead cockroaches and ants in our room and requested a room transfer. No equal-standard rooms were available so we requested our money back. We got our money back but with a struggle. The hotel is a long walk from the town centre and any taxi is at least 300 baht if you're lucky. I cannot comment on the food as we did not stay long enough. The infinity pool is lovely and very romantic at sunset but this is sadly spoilt by the intrusion of non-residents and no rules to prevent them taking all of the beds around
the pool. This place has potential but changes are necessary and the owners attitude must change. I wish to conclude my review by praising the attitude of the manager.... He was friendly, as helpful as he could be and endeavoured to rectify our situation but was limited by the owners attitude. I would never consider this hotel unless the manager took absolute control.

I stayed here for a week with my boyfriend, it was out of the main town which was what we wanted. The hotel was nice enough although when we arrived we were put in a bugdet room for a couple of days as we had changed our plans at the last minute and this was the only one available. We were then moved to a slightly larger room, which was better but I felt for what we were paying it was not what I had expected plus the bathroom had a straw roof which was slightly uplifted and open at the edges, being in the jungle this was not great with all the insects so I asked to move again. We were then moved to a much better room which over looked the sea, we were much happier here. The owner was very helpful and friendly. This was a nice place to stay with a lovely view and pool, the rooms were clean too which is important.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the pool.

This was our first time on Koh Tao and we enjoyed the stay from beginning to end. The hotel picked up promptly upon arrival and after receiving a nice welcome and a tour we were quickly settled in to our room. Most of the reviews here are dead on and we could not fault the hotel in anyway, except of course for the no beach, but we knew that from browsing the website.

All in all, an amazing stay and many great memories of sunsets and sunny afternoons.

I stayed in in April 2013, and as nice as it was it really wasnt for me.

The positives were that there were stunning views, as the hotel is on a cliff-top, and breakfast each morning was very nice, and the man on reception was as helpful as he could be.

However, if you're travelling with friends or alone, this probably isn't the place for you. It seemed more geared towards romantic getaways. The hotel is quite far from the beach, and even further away from the dive shop we were booked into. It was a 300 baht cab journey each time.

The room I stayed in was quite spacious but very, very dark. The one my friend was in had a lot of bugs, although thankfully I didnt experience this. The power also went out a few times.

For less money, my friend and I got our own deluxe suite each in Koh Samui. So, at least for us, we felt we could probably have gotten something better for our money.
