We stayed for 4 nights. First off, the view is probably the best I will ever have on a hotel, ever! However a view doesn't make a hotel, lots of things combined does and while most things where good with our stay, we left with a weird feeling and an almost bitter after taste, without having been mistreated. We had... More

Dear Guest, Whoa! It's been a long time since we have been accused of a weird feeling. You booked the Mystery Room last minute, which normally works out very cheap and gives you a taste of awesome room(s) for a much smaller price. Many guests have commented how smart they thought this was as it is a win win situation:... More

This place is AMAZING. The garden of the Aminjihrah Resort is wonderful with lots of lovely chill-areas, plants and flowers. The infinity pool next to the restaurant is sooo nice and very clean...also the view from the pool. You can see a wonderful bay. The staff is very kind and helpful. It's a very peace and quiet resort...perfect for a... More

Our stay in this hotel was really pleasant. The staff is the most friendly and helpfull that we have got in Thailand for the moment. The situation of the hotel is perfect. 15 minutes by walk from the city, and a fantastic view on the sea. The hotel is clean and quiet as there is not that many bedrooms. That's... More

Dear Florian, Thank you for commenting on our location as a plus !!! We are so happy with our location: close enough to the fun but not so close as to hear it all night as some resorts closer to Sairee Village have to. As we write on our website: It is a 15 - 20 minute walk at a... More

Very nice pool with the best view ever. We stayed at the Aminjirah for 3 nights at the end of our trip in Thailand. This place is gorgeous but not everything was as good is I would have hoped. - Food is really not great, had lunch there and was planning to have dinner to watch the sunset but we... More

Dear Guest, We are sorry to have disappointed you, yet pleased you liked part of the experience. Your review reads a little has perhaps having expected too much from our small resort and our small team of staff, especially considering the descriptions most guests have of our staff. We often find that guests, who haven't thoroughly studied our website fail... More

This boutique hotel is not only gorgeous in its layout, the staff are equally fabulous. We were upgraded to a sea view room upon arrival. The staff speaks impeccable English (not that I expect that while traveling abroad) but it has been a very nice and unexpected luxury during my travels across Thailand to be able to communicate effectively with...

We stayed at the Aminjirah for 4 nights over the New Years break. The view, the hotel itself and the staff were lovely with just a few flaws. However, the staff didn't speak much english and due to this was very hard to get anything across. From asking for Ketchup, salt and pepper to advice on the places to visit... More

Dear Guest Thanks for posting such awesome pictures. We are sorry that the English skills of some of our staff were a let down. It's unfortunately a common problem on Koh Tao, that English is not well spoken. Still, most of our guests seem to think it is adequate and usually things can be worked out with a smile and... More

The aminjirah is a very nice resort build directly in the rocks. You have no dirct access to a beach but a very nice infinity pool which pays off. We stayed 3 nights and beyond rain issues we had with the roof (it rained a lot the day before and drops got into the room the day after) all was... More

I booked a simple garden view room at the Aminjirah. I'm not sure why, but when I checked in I was told that my room has been upgraded. My new room was absolutely fantastic, a much bigger space, a private deck with chairs, and right beside the pool and restaurant. The best part of it was the breathtaking view...it must... More

We stayed at the Aminjirah for almost one week in January, 2015, and have had a great experience. It is up on the hillside, overlooking the Gulf, with stunning views from both the rooms we had. The first two nights we were in a room next to the infinity pool, and then we were moved to a separate 'villa', with... More

Having children myself I love places that love my children and we haven't needed to instill that in our staff !! They spoil all children that visit. I am happy to say that most of our rooms are spacious enough for extra beds and that we charge nothing if children sleep with their parents. More
