Hooray that I selected Koh Tao for my diving course. Had a splendid time but didnt' forego the chance to splash out a bit on accommodation even though my padi actually included it. One night in a small room among young scuba divers was enough, so I luckily found amamjirah on the internet and called them. The setting was just mind blowing with an amazing view of the sunset and nature all around. Cicadas was buzzing in the late afternoon and it was a delight to relax on my terrace after a hard day of learning to scuba. It really is a stunning place to stay for a few days as long as you don't expect a five star resort. The resort staff are absolutely amazing, always smiling and happy to help. One day I had a problem with my train ticket as I had booked it for the wrong day and the girl in the reception immediately got on the phone and sorted it out. I am coming back next year to dive again and will definitively stay here again...

Living in Bangkok it is often difficult to select where to go with the family. Many places don't cater to families or are TOO family friendly, i.e. large an impersonal. Therefore it was very refreshing to, during our trip to Koh Tao, find a small resort that even though it's not on the beach, just were a perfect choice for a small family with spacious rooms, excellent and helpful service and a shallow pool where the young ones could play. Plus with few rooms, you get a very special and family atmosphere. We stayed at the family suite and enjoyed the sunset from our balcony and the sun during the day at the pool and restaurant terrace. Much has to be said for the staff, although some of them had not too much English, they were all just big smiles and happy to help.

Don't choose this place if you are looking for a perfect 5 star vacation though, as I don't think that's even what the resort aims to be.

Best Regards

A Swedish Dude Living in Bangkok !!!

Our stay at Amanjirah was an absolute delight. We stayed in the Seaview Fantasy room for 3 nights and was not disappointed. The view was spectacular from Sunrise to Sunset...we had our privacy as it is a small resort...and that was exactly what we wanted. The service was impecable, and the food was one of the best on the island.(especially the Chicken Pad Thai, and Tom Kai Ghai) delivered to our room or you can enjoy their delightful outdoor restaurant...
This place is a must stay and well priced

As time passes, memories linger but great experiences never fade. Our short honeymoon at The Amanjirah was one of those experiences. My husband and I lodged in Seaview Suite and enjoyed a large balcony with an absolutely fantastic view and easy access to the small but refreshing dipping pool, which overlooks the sea. Overall Amanjirah is not a typical resort, it is very small and intimate with great little touches and very friendly staff. Nothing is ever a bother for Ms. Farida and her team. Granted, the language barrier can sometime cause some funny situations, but if you are prepared to go with a smile, then you simply won't be disappointed. We would come back in heartbeat if we had the chance.

I would highly recommend this holiday resort as it is perfectly situated, away from the hustle and bustle of the popular Sairee beach bars and restaurants, but only a couple of minutes away using the resort’s taxi service. It is ideal for perfect views of the sunset over the ocean from the restaurant . We found this to be the perfect location as it was so peaceful and tranquil. The rooms are absolutely stunning and the décor is exquisite. They are exceptionally clean and well maintained. The staff are lovely, really friendly and very helpful. We could not have asked for anything else from a resort. We may consider this place for our honeymoon!
