Oh where to start. I guess positives: the staff there - & I'm citing the native Thai men that cleaned, particularly the ones that worked in the restaurant, were the sweetest people. They were friendly & always spoke to us & inquired about our food- even if they didn't speak fluent English. They had smiles on their faces & greeted... More

Dear Sistasmurf, I have thought long and hard on how to reply to your review, as it was deeply hurtful to myself and our employees that were all involved in the incident which you describe. I decided that the best way was to simply lay out the facts as they happened, but before doing so I would like to respond... More

Me and my friends stayed here for 7 nights, and since then we have arrived at another hotel on another island. From now on I can only dream about revisiting aminjirah.

We came here as our booked place wasn't as expected and the Aminjirah is really nice. The view is spectacular and it's a perfect place to drink cold beer in the pool while watching an amazing sunset. The room was big and clean, the staff was friendly and they provide a shuttle down to the village for free. The only... More

I loved staying at the Aminjirah. It is a bit farther away but perfect for couples and friends who want to get away and relax. Service was great and I was in love with the infinity pool, too! While the food prices are a bit higher, they have great (cheap) lunch specials with a delicious selection of Thai food. We... More

Granted, we tend to be budget travelers without the most luxurious tastes. However, Aminjirah is an objectively fantastic hotel. We dreaded the thought of leaving at the end of our stay.

We stayed 5 nights at Aminjirah and loved it. We tried three rooms, Old school, infinity view and green view.
