I just returned from a fab 5 night stay at Amanjirah Resort and I can truly say that it was one of the most relaxing stays I have ever had at a hotel. From the moment you enter the reception until the time you check out again, all the staff are so friendly and smiling that it's nearly too much.
We stayed in room 7 which I believe is one of the standard rooms and had booked this directly through the resort's home page. I can not recognise a single point of the previous reviewer's complaints. Especially considering the price was less than 40 USD per night. Yes, it's one of the cheaper rooms and you get what you pay for. In this case that means a small but comfortable room with nice beds, nice furnishings, a quirky bathroom (but works just fine), tv and airconditioning. We were planning to spend our time outdoors in any case and loved the tranquility of both the pools. Especially the smaller pool has such an amazing sea view that must be seen.
The treetop terrace is where we had our meals and boy were they yummi + lounging in the hammock in the night time is just an amazing feeling with the ocean view and the cicadas humming. Fantastic. Absolutely.
The staff, as previously mentioned, were excellent - not the best English, but very very friendly and dropping what they were doing to help with our bags when we arrived. Lovely people.
So to conclude: If you're high maintenance and require 5 star posh surroundings then you should not come here, infact you should probably not come to Koh Tao at all, but if you're looking for beautiful surrondings, atmospheric rooms and a family atmosphere then Amanjirah is for you.
