We stayed at Amanjirah for a week in March, sadly it was just before the flooding so the weather was very unseasonal , I think we had 1 day of sunshine.
The resort is small, well laid out, but it is small, I could even say that they might have tried to fit too many rooms in. Doing away with one room could have made the others bigger. Whilst we were there it was quiet, but as most of the rooms are situated round the pool and on top of each other, during high season I would expect it to be noisy.
We chose a superior room @2500THB, which is enough to pay for Koh Tao. When we booked, the website was being created/changed regularly as the resort is new so there were no photos of our room type (and still aren’t)
It was tiny with only one side of the bed accessible. I would say that it’s only really suitable for 1 person. One window looking out on to the pool terrace, which literally was a stones throw away. We had to keep the curtains closed all the time as you could see right in to our room. (Sitting on our balcony I could clearly read the magazine of a sunbather, it was that close!)
We were under the impression that it would be bigger and better appointed that the standard garden room, but as these rooms were next to each other, we could see little difference apart from the small balcony.
However having said all this, the room itself was immaculately presented with top quality fixtures and fittings. It was also spotlessly clean. Little extras like kettle, fridge and free wifi were a nice touch. Would have been nice to have a shelf in the bathroom and hooks for towels/robes etc.
The resort is in a good location away from the noise of Sairee, but only 5 mins by scooter to the bars and restaurants. Staff at the resort were very friendly and courteous and the manager speaks very good English. Our included breakfast was very nice and served on our balcony.
A nice resort, I would kind of recommend it but if you want a reasonable size room then you will have to pay a bit more than we did, even though I think we paid enough by Thailand standards.
