have stayed in many 5 star hotels over the years and this one (so far) is the winner for me. Right from the start (when you arrive) you are made to feel very welcome. The place is very silent and peaceful, yet very close to the Lamai village where alternative restaurants are and of course the hotel is right on the beach. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very generously sized. The views (we had a sea view villa) are breathtaking ... But I think all of the 18 villas offer great views. The breakfast menu and selection was great too. The staff were very helpful (during our full 8 day stay) ... and I would like to personally thank the residential manager (Arijit), "Table" (Thai name Toh, bar supervisor) and Krit (food and beverage supervisor) for making our stay so special here. You could say that the location is only 95% perfect (small steep hill from Lamai village to the hotel) ... but there are 2 perfect solutions to get round this: 1) you walk 5-10 minutes along the beach and you are there (the romantic way!) or 2) The hotel runs a "tuk tuk" (open thai taxi) service where they will take you to any place in Lamai and pick you up from any place in Lamai (the convenient / lazy way). This "tuk tuk" service is 100% free of charge, and there are no waiting times as they will pick you up or drop you off at whatever time you want want them to. Now that's what I call going the extra mile. And also, I would say it is good that there is a small hill there ... as this shields the hotel from any potential noise that could be coming from Lamai village. Perfect! Get ready to be spoilt at the Ammatara hotel in Lamai, in every way immaginable. The staff will go out of their way to make your stay special. I could not fault it, even if I tried to. PS I love the different sweets they put on your bed every night - nice touch too.
