The Jamahkiri Resort & Spa Koh Tao In Thailand Is Worth Checking Out
After checking out all the websites we could find of places on Koh Tao, there was one place that we really liked the look of, and that was the Jamahkiri Resort & Spa, but what clinched it for us, was a friend of a friend who had stayed there, and said it was fabulous.
What we found was a very plush resort, with everything you could ask for in a bigger resort, just kind of scaled down.
It overlooks the beautiful Shark Bay, and the Jamahkiri could best be described as a treasure. It is totally isolated and the bay it is itself in, is quite unspoilt. The room was everything we hoped it would be, in a pavilion style, with Thai décor, with spa-bath, flat screen TV, DVD player, safe, and neat balcony overlooking the bay.
Most importantly the bed was comfortable, with the kind of linen sheets that just feels quality!!
Although there is no beach as such, there is a pier, and you can snorkel here, the snorkelling isn’t bad at all, or take a kayak and go exploring.
If you want to go diving, then a short walk along the shore to the next cove will bring you to three or four diving schools.
The food in the restaurant was excellent, if a little limited, and the service from the staff extremely good indeed,.
The spa with good reason is rated the best on the island, so altogether a very relaxing place, but your leg muscles will need to be good, because of the walking up and down you will do.
We would certainly recommend the Jamhakiri Resort & Spa as a honeymoon destination, and for couples but not enough for families with small children.
Please however be aware that The Jamahkiri Resort & Spa is only really accessible why four wheel drive vehicles, and if you want to eat out in town, then it’s free to get there but the last free lift back is 8.30pm, and it is a very bumpy twenty minute ride down what is no more than a track.
This isolation, whilst it is attractive, you do need to escape in the evenings because the dinner menu becomes repetitive.
