Pros: Beautiful, relaxing environment. Staff fantastic. Cons: Dinner menu diverse/ a little spendy but need more vegetarian options. There are plenty of stairs to ensure you don't take your vacation eating back home with you.

The only downside to Jamahkiri was the parrot they have on display in reception area. Sad to see. Everything else was perfect..... free taxi boat to nearby beach, free shuttle into town, spacious rooms, private lounge areas for guests, and top-notch service.

          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

          HEAVEN ”
          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!!!

          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.

          Great view, nice hotel, be careful from the steps”
          We stayed for 3 nights as a couple in honeymoon. At first we got a room right by the sea (the hotel is on a cliff) so it is a very long way up and down each time you need to get out the room (more than 200 steps). On the second day we were transferred to a much higher room and it was perfect. The hotel is quite secluded so we didn’t leave much. The hotel restaurant is very good but a little expensive for Thailand. We recommend the hotel but ask for a higher room of the pavilion kind.

          Feel like kings hotel - but no directly acces to beach”
          We got at very good price for a nice room. The hole hotel is luxury - clean and maintained. The hotel looks like the pictures. Everythings works. Yes there are steps - but what did you expect. the hotel is very smoothly build in/on the hillside and between rocks. Very nice pool, where you can eat and relax. great view. Nice little gym - (hardly ever been used) Good snorkling directly from the hotel (depending on the weather)- saw sharks and turtles. Great breakfast. The resurant is expensive - but we dident try it. cant say if it worth it, We used the very close nearby resturant "eagle view" several times - good thaifood to good prices. - very good view. If anything could be better, it is the location af the hotel. You have to sail to the nearst beach. (100 bath pr. person) and besides the Eagle View, their nothing. If you want just to relax, and stay at the hotel this is a very good place - we would come back, if we should onley be their for 3-4 days, but not for a week.

          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.

          The Best Resort for Honeymoon”
          Just incredible. The best resort ever. It's located at the south tip of Koh Tao. They pick you up from the pier as soon as you arrive. The drive from the pier to the resort is around 10 minutes and it's very pleasant. I'm glad it's not at a very touristy area, the resort is well-kept and super super nice. Breakfast is phenomenal. I already miss it. Ocean beach access. They have boats that take you for snorkeling and scuba diving for a very reasonable price. You can even get your hours counted in their pool because it's deep enough. Massages are a great price. It's just simply fantastic. The only thing I wasn't expecting was the amount of stairs there are. But it's great because it tones up your ass while you're on vacation and eating lots. They thought of everything. There are shuttles that take you to town everyday at set times. Taxi rides are 400 baht. I would stay here again.

We extended our stay because we loved it so much! It’s a bit off from the city center but they have a shuttle! Antoine (guest relations) recommended us to rent a motorbike from a place down the road and they were so nice and helpful. Thank you to all the staff that was so nice to us and made our stay amazing! Defenitly a five star hotel! Will defenitly come back!

          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.

          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....

          Lovely hotel with an amazing dive center ”
          Dive center, Pool area, and the staff
          We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it was never noisy and the staff are really polite and happy to help, they are also excellent with children. We never had a bad meal at the hotel and the pool area was lovely to relax by. For us the real great thing about this hotel is the dive center, all the staff were amazing and has a real passion for diving, they are not like a big dive school who care mostly about numbers. The dive center focuses on small groups (no more than 2 ppl) and made it a really enjoyable experience for the beginners and advanced divers in our group. Our stay at the hotel was overall lovely and relaxing, apart from the hundreds of stairs. Our room did stink of smoke at first, and they never supplied a baby cot (at first) which seemed to be an issued as "housekeeping had finished." After I explained it was not my issue, they supplied the cot. Another downside to the hotel is the access, there are hundreds of stairs and no way to avoid them which made it very difficult at times. The "beach" area of the hotel, is not a beach you want to go to but all you do is take the free boat to the beach 1 minute away. Even with the negative things about the hotel we would stay here again on the basis we are not in a hotel room but a bungalow near the pool!

          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 !!!

          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.
