My partner and I vacationed in Koh Tao, for our second time, this past June. After scouring the internet and TripAdvisor, we chose Aminjirah Resort for our week long stay. This was clearly a step up from the last time we were in Koh Tao (we were backpackers then!). I was impressed before we even arrived, just from the e-mail contact we had. I emailed them a few times before arrival asking some general questions, and always had a reply within a day or two.

Upon arrival (note: took a taxi from pier to Amanjirah as I was informed before arrival that they no longer offer pick-up service) we were greeted with cool drinks and friendly smiles, and an unexpected but welcome upgrade due to an administrative error (we originally booked the Seaview Fantasy suite, and ended up with the Royal Seaview suite, which was twice the size!). The photos on the website don't lie - the place is stunning, and the views are seriously the best you will find in Koh Tao. Our room had a large balcony overlooking the ocean and direct access to the second (more private) pool.There was a bit of construction going on while we were there, but the noise didn't bother us that much.

Yes, the resort is up on a hill (hence the incredible views), but IS walkable to Sairee beach and town - just be prepared to sweat a lot, and if doing it in the night, it's dark so I recommend a torch. After a couple of days, we ended up renting a scooter and the 10 min walk turned into a 2 min scooter ride.

There was some problems with water pressure a few days - but was always corrected within a few minutes of the pressure being low and its probably something that happens at every resort on the island. The free wifi was a great bonus and was surprisingly very reliable and the complimentary water each day was great. There is also a little shop just across the road where you can get waters, snacks and beer if you don't want to venture down into the main town.

All in all, we had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed staying at Amanjirah. Hopefully we will get the pleasure of returning! (oh - and Pinky, the resident dog, is such a sweetheart!)

Room Tip: Recommend the Sea View Rooms - you won't regret it

Dear Jtann,

It was a pleasure meeting you guys and I am happy you enjoyed your stay. The good news is that it's been raining loads since then, so water problems are no longer an issue on the island :-)

Hope to see you again...

If you are looking for a peaceful place to relax and not too far away from night life, Amanjirah Resort is the right place to go to. It is located almost on the highest level of Sairee beach. We used to walk down to the village and the beach and walk back up to the resort, temperature around 35 degree celcius, about 30 minutes walk. We took it as our daily exercise, so we can enjoy the very good food at the resort again!
We booked the Seaview Fantasy and we loved it. The room is tastefully decorated and spacious, this goes the same with the bathroom. The balcony was big and the view is breathtaking! We had our meals at our balcony as we were not use to eating in the traditional Thai style, which is sitting on cushions. We did tried on the first evening. We had all our meals in the resort and they were all delicious. For the quality you get, it is worth the price.
A good snorkeling spot is to walk down the hill through the hotel below. Ask the receptionist for the direction. The staffs are all very friendly and hardworking. Some of the guys are a bit shy. The resort is very well kept and clean. Oh, yes, if the pools were to be a little bit bigger, then it would be more then perfect! We did experience a couple times with electricity or water supply breakdown, it was not a problem at all for us. We were on holiday and we had TIME.
Our stay at Amanjirah was very pleasant and we will definitely recommend it to our friends.

This was my 4th trip to Thailand and I am aware of the superior Thai hospitality. But experience at Aminjirah has raised my expectation. It was one of the best trip to thailand out of all the holidays I have spent in Thailand and I would give complete credit to Aminjirah to make my stay memorable and amazing.

During our two week stay in koh tao we learned to snorkel, to dive and to drive a motorbike + we learned to love this resort. Actually we loved it from the first time we saw pictures that some of our friend took when they stayed in the summer time.

Having booked the family suite since we are a an old guy and lady and two teenagers, we enjoyed being away from it all but close enough to scooter down on a couple of motorbikes to the beaches and bays around the island. No matter where you stay on koh tao you really need a motorbike anyway to see the whole island, especially if staying for a longer period.

The suite was just perfect with three rooms and a large balcony where one can actually see the ocean and also walk to one of the pools directly. The beds were very comfortable and beautiful furniture and decoration topped it off.

There is just such a unique atmosphere of friends and family at aminjirah that you forget you are staying in a resort. We came as strangers and left at friends, both of aminjirah but also koh tao.

Room Tip: the family suite is super if you are more than 2 persons. Just super.
