Beautiful resort and fabulously empty during low season (Mid May). Felt like we had the entire place to ourselves with the exception of a few other couples. Rooms were spotless, service was friendly, food was awesome, daily free breakfast top notch! Special shout out to the night time pool area bartender, he was awesome and returned our snorkeling masks to the front desk so we didn't have to climb the stairs.
oh that...stairs. There are a LOT of stairs at the resort. Not exactly wheel chair accessible.
the spa - was OK, not exactly what i'd call top notch or 5star resort worthy, but decent. save your money, enjoy the pool and private beach instead!
Thing to note - Most of the employees at the Jamahkiri are from Burma/Myanmar and are paid very low wages, work at least 10 hour shifts and the worst? They get TWO days off a month. Thus, the term "weekend" does not exist for them. The resort is taking advantage of them.
