Very nice resort with spacious rooms directly facing the sea. Very clean and nice facilities. You can rent snorkeling equipment and kayaks for a small fee which is very nice. Wifi is very poor and needs to be improved. Breakfast was okay but we expected a bit more. The on-site restaurant is very good but also quite expensive. All in all a nice experience.
Good quality hotel”
Clean, staffs are kind. Good sea view. Bad location for having something. You need to take shuttles bus or taxi to go sairee beach. Maybe taxi price is 500baht? We always took free shuttle bus. Maybe 8am, 1pm, 3pm,6pm. Its next to shark bay. Its good to go snorkeling. We saw turtle. Overall, I recommend this hotel.
My partner and I decided to splurge one night in your stay at Koh Tao. We didn’t realize we would be in HEAVEN! Everything was absolutely perfect. The view was like nothing I’ve ever seen. The room was fantastic. The bathroom is GORGEOUS. Our spa visit was incredible. We literally didn’t leave the resort until we had to. Staff was super friendly. There’s a free shuttle that can take you to the city. I had a motorbike, but the hill is very steep so make sure you are comfortable driving. The shuttle and friendly staff are the more than able to accommodate you though. That room, and that view. If you are even slightly considering this place, DO IT. You will not regret it!!!
Great view and awesome snorkeling”
The view from the rooms is perfect. The sea near the hotel is very beautiful. We got to see turtles and sharks. Hotel provides snorkeling equipment for a small fee. Free shuttle to Shark bay beach and pier. Tours arrange with depart from the dock in the hotel. Many stairs, but it was easier than what we thought. Antoine was very nice.
Great luxury all-inclusive hotel”
Jamahkiri was everything that I wanted and more. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who comes. The whole place screams luxury and beach resort vacation. You have a private beach, spa, equipment rental, dive shop, restaurant and more! And the rooms are phenomenal too. Breakfast was amazing as well. There were only a couple critiques: -If you are looking for authentic Thai food, this restaurant is not for you (it is quite bland and caters in my opinion too much to the western palate) - remember this is my opinion -The hotel is actually located very high up on a hill and is very difficult to walk to the nearest inhabited area (around a 25 minute hike if you are fit). The only other ways are if you are comfortable renting a motorbike or paying for an overly inflated taxi (400 baht to ride 5 minutes down the hill - there are no other taxi services on the island). Overall though, I would definitely stay here again on my next trip even with the minor critiques.
Time for reflection and diving”
The place is quite remote at Ko Tao, however the hotel has all needed facilities and a great restaurant. The divecenter had an amazing crew and was using top-quality equipment, which was quite a change from the usual.
Perfect för relaxed snorkeling”
Jamahkiri is a wonderful hotel for us keen snorkellers. In the eleven days we spent here, we came across (and photographed) big turtles, reef sharks and -- when going on a trip with the resort's boat -- a whale shark, which was close to us and slowly cruising along. The restaurant is excellent, with a great variety of international and Thai food, which means that there are few gastronomical reasons to go to other places of Koh Tao. Very friendly and helpful staff. This is really one of the best hotel stays we have ever experienced.
Absolutely loved it”
We had a fabulous time at the Jamahkiri, we did not feel the need to leave the hotel at all. What a view and what a beautiful hotel. We loved our rooms, the boys had adjoining rooms. The wifi was great. We did snorkelling every day. Our only regret is we should have done the scuba diving course and taken a snorkelling trip as well. Breakfast was not extensive but was very enjoyable, it had everything we needed or wanted. We are in Krabi now and the boys are really wishing they were back at Jamahkiri, now every other hotel will seem lacking. Thank you, we hope we will get another opportunity to come again. It was a soul soothing experience.
Too many stairs”
This hotel got too much stairs to climb it is definitely NOT suitable for children and old folks! The room service food is cheaper and nicer compare to hotel Resturant food! The Resturant is too expensive, 3times the price compare to the Resturant in town and worst is food is not good at all. Location is the worst, there is nothing nearby and you need to hotel shuttle to the town and the timing is not good, the management should provide shuttle once every 2hrs
Amazing hotel. The room is big and comfortable, the pool is clean and have amazing view. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The food is very good. Not cheap hotel and services but totally worth it
Great hotel n food”
We re fine with all the stairs but location is too far away when travel daily to dive shop Great just to stay in hotel pool n beach Great breakfast n all food perfect if they have reusable chopsticks
Views from the hotel was just breathtaking...As it is in the hill top , yes there are a lot of steps but the views completely compesnate for that...service and facilities are great and free shuttle bus is very helpful.Jist two things - 1. They should mention about the charge for the beach. 2. In Breakfast name should be displayed for the items. All in all the best views I have enjoyed among all resorts that I have stayed so far.
Amazing resort... a little far from anything else.”
This is really a five star resort. As long as cost is not your concern, you will love this place. Nice rooms, great views, amazing staff, and excellent breakfast. There are a lot of stairs so the less able should be aware. This was a great end to our holiday. It is a little far away from anything else but the hotel offers a free shuttle several times a day to the town at the pier. Great stay.
Great vacation Spot”
This Hotel is very unique. Architecturally brilliantly built into the mountain side. Awesome views of the surrounding ocean. Yes, many steps so be prepared. I counted 155 from our ocean villa no. 1 to the restaurant. Rented motorbike (300 bhatt/day) from location near hotel on the mountain. They don't require deposit of passport and claim not to hassle you for any minor scratches and staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel restaurant was included and had great breakfast. Loved happy hour drinks at pool from 5pm to 8 pm for 130 bhatt plus 17%. Found other meals were good but check out Eagle View located across parking lot and up hillside. Family run and great reviews for food. Only disappointment was we signed up for the 4 hr. boat trip around the island with 4 snorkeling stops and only ended up doing only a 1/4 of the island and 4 stops near hotel due to weather. Thank you to Mary (front desk manager) and hotel staff for making trip very special.
We had wonderful stay in this hotel. Location is a bit far from main street but if you can drive motor bike it is no problem at all. Room is located just front of orcean which is fantastic view!! You can do snorkeling from private beach and meet a lot of colorful fishs and even turtle sometimes. Only one I was disappointing is no hot water at all. Our room had bath tub but we couldn't use it. I hope that hotel will fix this problem.
Best location and facility, staff are confused and not performing.”
This is one of the best hotel in Island - it is super exotic, a must see. Food is OK, its about 4 star quality. But staff are not even Thai and act strange - very indifference and stone faced, unlike any Thai resort you stay. Its too bad - they are all Myanmar/Cambodians or something, it hey work in Thai resort, they should adapt Thai style hospitality na....
Had the most wonderful time there that we will surely repeat. Just about everything was great, snorkeling in front of the hotel, nice restaurant with good food, fantastic views from the room in a nicely designed place. Actually remembering it all now, I feel like going back today. Going to Koh Tao and back I did not like very much……The wonderful standard of this hotel and there are a few more around now a days should get their own boat going to Samui…..in my humble opinion….will come back !!!
A few days in paradise”
Such a wonderful place! Quite isolated so not good for people that want to walk into town however they do provide shuttle buses and boats free of charge. The staff were so organized and super friendly to us. We weren't too lucky with the weather but there was still plenty to do at the hotel. I was quite happy sitting on our balcony admiring the amazing views. Next time I am on Koh Tao I would definitely stay here again.
Stunning hotel/resort. ”
Stayed here a year or two ago and was pleasantly surprised to be offered a free bottle of sparkling wine in an ice bucket on arrival. Great touch. Pool area is fabulous, although on this occasion, there wasn't a free sun lounger in sight. It appears the resort has new policy for allowing anyone in who's not staying at the hotel. After a complaint, I was soon offered (and rightly so) a couple of sun loungers, after staff acted quickly on customers behalf. Wifi again, was hit and miss. Enjoyed the collection from pier in the new/plush resort minivan. Would stay here again.
Beautiful hotel on Koh Tao!”
Beautiful hotel in Koh tao, near the water, there is a beach near too, you can go there with their boat for free. The landscape, swimming pool and view are amazing. Good restaurant but expensive. Professional staff, free transfer to pier. Will be back for sure, very nice hotel. Rooms are nice, just the wifi does not always work in the room. I was also surprised not to find a water spray by the toilet like you see everywhere in thailand, it's useful. They built a really nice hotel on this cliff so be aware there are stairs to climb too but it is worth it when you are there. Great snorkeling in front of the hotel.
