Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

Like allot of the islands good hotels, this one is also located on the Mt. So there is allot of steps going up and down from the pool to the beach and reception... But the view is unforgettable , staff were nice and the food at the hotel was on of the best on the island . We stayed at the deluxe bungalow which has the panoramic view to shark bay. Amazing .

Beautiful hotel, great food, great service,amazing view....I can't say enough good things about this resort. The pool is beautiful, and the perfect temperature. It is a bit secluded, but easy to get taxis both to and from the resort at any time, or rent an ATV to get you up the hills. Lots of stairs throughout this cliffside resort, so it's great for keeping in shape with all the delicious thai food as well :)
We also did a 3-hr spa treatment which was one of the highlights; the spa is far back on the resort so it's very quiet and relaxing, and the facial was a really awesome experience. The sauna/salt bath was very refreshing.

I also started and finished my Open Water diving certification through Jamahkiri, and had Derek Hanna as my instructor. He was amazing and squashed any fears I had about the ocean and diving - he was fun, patient, very experienced and my entire group had a really great time diving with him and the rest of the Jamahkiri team. If you are thinking about any diving course while on Koh Tao, I really recommend using Jamahkiri!

Staying at Jamahkiri on Koh Tao was my favorite part of our 3.5-week trip to Thailand. Highly recommend this resort!!

I have stayed in the new hotel once and in the bungalow No.6 ONCE. if you wanna stay closer to the swimming pool which is the best hill side pool on Koh Tao, then choose Bungalows.
Don't get me wrong, the hotel is great, new, awesome view, spacious clean rooms - but i prefer bungalow :)
Pool bar have great drinks and excellent service.
I would also recommend the spa, superb packages with sauna, aloe vera body wrap, facial and body massage - TOP CHOICE.

Room Tip: No.6 BUNGALOW is very close to the pool bar.

A wonderful resort, clean, large rooms, all with balconies facing the ocean. Very well run, spotless gardens and pool area. There are two restaurants at the hotel, one barbeque restaurant and one thai/western food restaurant. Both with delicious food and great service. The breakfast buffet had great choices of both hot/cold food, western and thai. The resort has its own private beach area, but this area is mostly rock (only a small sand beach), but there is a nice sandy beach just minutes way with a small boat. The hotel gives a free shuttle to the beach. We did not use this service, as we stayed at the hotel property, they have sun beds just by the sea. The snorkeling just outside the hotel is good, and swimming is great with calm sea and warm waters. The hotel is situated approximately 10 minutes driving from the closest city, but the hotel offers a free shuttle service three times a day, the last one returning at 1830. If you want to have dinner in town, you need to take a taxi back (500 baht). We had all our meals at the resort, the food was delicious. we stayed for a week, and it was perfect, but quiet. The resort has its own spa and exercise room. But this is not the place to stay if you have problems walking, the resort is situated in a very hilly terrain and has a lot of stairs to walk from the hotel building to the restaurant and down to the sea. But you get free excersise! We stayed from 26.Dec 2012 to 02. Jan 2013, the only drawback was the price, quite expensive for Thailand. But worth it.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view.

We only stayed for one night however it's the best experience. The hotel has its own pier we can go snorkeling directly from the hotel. We booked a normal room with decent sea view. My parents love it so much. The hotel is built on mountain and well maintained. Luxury hotel with decent price. Highly recommend. However the restaurant sucks! Too sour and only western food no Thai food. Location is very bad as it's on the mountain. Luckily it has its own pier.

Excellent resort if looking for romantic break but not great for a group of friends looking to party. There was a bus waiting to take us to the resort when we arrived off the boat which was a welcome surprise. Check in was smooth and efficient and our bags were waiting in our room when we arrived. Rooms were excellent with a balcony overlooking shark bay. Pool area was nice and clean with a bar. Staff were are friendly and very helpful when it came to recommending restaurants, bars, etc. Breakfast was gorgeous and we ate at the pool bar which was nice too. No wifi in the rooms which I found really annoying, it's free at the pool area and in reception. There is a lot of steps especially if going down to beach area so be warned! I hated the steps so they would put me off returning. They were hard work with a hangover!!! A taxi to Sairee beach is roughly 1000 baht. There are no shops around the resort so you are dependant on taxis.

I loved this hotel. Phenomenal vista meant that every morning waking up here was a pleasure. Panoramic water views from every room we stayed in (we moved 3 times as we kept extending our stay), nice food, great service, lovely pool, snorkelling with sharks, cocktail happy hour, patient staff, longtail boat shuttle to beach...it was hard to leave.
The endless steps were hard-going but a great workout for the buns!
