At the end of a two week backpacking trip, we decided to splurge and stay at the Jamahkiri Boutique Resort and Spa and we were very pleased! This is not your regular resort. It is just Beautiful! The whole resort is built into the side of a cliff so it would be wise to assume that you will have to climb some stairs. This only adds to the charm of the resort. While there are little bunglows to stay in, we stayed in one of the new rooms in the main hotel building. This building is a new buildning and the room was extremely clean and beautiful. We had an amazing view right off our balcony as well. The restaurant offers a wide selection of both traditional thai and western food. There is also a wine cellar which offers a wide selection of wines. Breakfast is included and it offers all that you could ever want with fresh juices and fruit etc. There is a pool which is very relaxing and there is a little bar off the pool where you can get drinks and lunch. The spa also has one of the best menus that I've seen in Thailand. Overall, this is a quiet and relaxing resort. If you are looking for nightlife, this is not the place for you. We came here looking for relaxation and peace and we were very happy with what we found. We also were able to rent a longtail boat for the day to go out snorkelling. They even packed us a little picnic! The staff here were very nice and accomodating. While you will have to take a pickup truck ride to the resort over rough roads, this is a small price to pay for such relaxation and quiet. We had a wonderful time here and we would reccomend it to others who want to relax and take in the breathtaking views of the ocean and surrouinding hills.
