The hotel is nestled in an amazing location...in the middle of huge granite boulders overlooking sharks' bay....the architecture of the complex is incredible and in my view close to perfection. I can understand that for people with limited mobility it can be difficult to move around the different areas; also, for the very lazy travelers I would suggest a Club-Med style beach resort :)... leave Jamahkiri to us alone!
During our stay there were very few guests so we've been literally pampered by the wonderful staff, very skilled and friendly, 5* service not impersonal nor intrusive (the general manager deserves all the good comments). Additionally, every little detail in the hotel represents unpretentious luxury, from the reception welcome to the little goodbye gifts.
The Swimming pool is fantastic, the Spa is top notch and full of character, the restaurant very good and in my view not expensive at all given the quality of ingredients and size of the portions.
For nature lovers you can swim with reef sharks every morning before breakfast and we saw one swimming in the water from our balcony (also, we spotted a baby crocodile in the rocks)
Overall Jamahkiri is a magnificent place, and possible the most relaxed and relaxing 5* hotel I've ever stayed.
(PS we were supposted to stay 2 nights but we extended to 5...and not more only because we had to take our flight back home from Samui)
