Jamahkiri Resort & Spa
Ranked #4 of 49 Hotels in Koh Tao
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The hotel is beautifully embedded in the rock slope, with a very impressive view at the sea. The staff is very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast buffet was very varied. The beach on the south side is paradise on earth, simply amazing. They provide a free shuttle which takes you to one of the nearby beaches, but you’d have to take a taxi on the way back. The only downside was the bathroom which was very sterile and rather disappointing for a hotel of this price range. I did love the breakfast buffet and the prompt service. My wife also tried the massage at the spa and she was very pleased with their services. I recommend it gladly, you’ll have a good stay there if you decide to book this hotel.

This place was marvelous! We had a great time here, living in paradise for a week or so. The white sand, the beautiful view of the sea and the beach from our suite, the great service, the beautiful environment and the delicious meals -- everything was perfect! We really had a great time, me and my boyfriend and friends. We went to the spa and really had a great time with the massage and the facial. We went snorkeling with the different types of fish, then we went on to go kayaking. We had lunch by the pool side, which was overlooking the sea. It was marvelous, and the weather was awesome when we got there. We were lucky because it wasn't the summer months, but the heat was immense -- which is good for us. There was not one moment or one penny of this trip that went to waste! I love every minute of it!

I took my wife to this resort for her 50th birthday, we stayed 4 days and 3 nights ( i live on the island) and it really was a fantastic time away, the rooms are fantastic and so is the food, the poolside and surrounding areas are fantastic, there is a dive school on site and try dives in the pool, just ask for Derek, and happy hour at the poolside bar is a great way to have a few cocktails before you eat, the food is amazing and we were looked after totally , we had the 3 hour spar treatment which again fantastic, thai massage and steam room, body wrap and a facial, the whole 4 days were magical, so make sure you spend some time at Jamahkiri, i know we will be back

This is a beautiful hotel to stay at. Some of the negative comments about steep steps etc are true but unjustified. Its on the beach in a quiet, lovely part of the island and the views, rooms and amenities are worth the steps... also, think of it as a workout without having to actually workout.

The staff are really friendly and I found them very helpful with all my requests. Yes, some of them do not have great English (some almost none) BUT they are still better than most other places and they are more than happy to try work through what you want and there was a western manager there when I stayed who was able to step in when needed. The room I stayed in was brilliant. The bed was the softest one I slept on in Thailand which was a lovely change. The showers, water pressure etc were all top notch. The food was savage, especially the breakfast.

this place is lovely to stay for a couple or people wanting peace and quiet. If you want lively, go somewhere else. Also, the roads to get to it are steep, especially the last part. Do NOT rent a bike unless you are confident on them as the road is not for beginners. However, it isnt as bad as some negative customers have said. There are quads for rent if you do want to get around and they are safer and more comfortable if you do want to drive yourself and not rely on the shuttle (be mobile yourself and dont rely on their transport is my advice as you will be limited with where and what time you can move around if you do)...but thats not a complaint, its just a fact.

Would definitely go back!

We stayed in one of the deluxe pavillons which have a huge window front to the sea and an awesome view over the bay, the beach and the sea. You can lay down in your kingsize bed and just enjoy this amazing perspective while the air condition is cooling your room.
The service was very good and the employees have always been very helpful and polite.
The breakfast also was excellent for Thailand, you've a great choice of Thai and western food.
Jamhakiri offers several facilities like a gym, spa, snorkeling and diving, free boat transfer to the beach and also free taxi transportation several times a day to the center Mae Had. The pool is great and the view from the sunchairs over the sea is so amazing
The private beach is quite small but as already mentioned you will be transported to the awesome shark bay beach for free in a minute.

We can recommend this resort without restrictions.
Just be aware that the resort is build at the hillside and you've to take lots of stairs when going to the beach, restaurant etc.

Many thanks to all the employees who did a perfect job to make this stay unforgettable.
