One of the best hotels I have stayed in!!

Posted Dec 16, 2013
Pros: Amazing original Thai design (like a temple), cleanliness of whole resort, location and great staff
As someone who has stayed in quite a few resorts and hotels I can say that very few reach the standards of service, cleanliness and quality of Ammatara Pura. It is an oasis of beauty and tranquillity right on the beach front and a stones throw from Lamai main street. We stayed in a beachside room, which was massive with our own private pool. The finishing detail of the whole property and inside the rooms are fantastic. Across the board from check in to check out all the staff were extremely efficient, friendly and couldn't have done more for myself and my girlfriend. The location is right by the main street but once inside the property with its unique design, palm trees and seclusion you really would have no idea The only negative for me was getting to the main street considering the hotel is practically on it. The easiest way is to walk on to the beach and cut back in through one of the other hotels, otherwise you have to walk up a particularly steep hill and down the other side (but it is hardly a deal breaker). Early December the hotel was quiet and lacked a bit of atmosphere but with the main street with lots of bars and restaurants close by it is not really a problem. I got my flight times mixed up and had it not been for quick action and organisation by staff I would have missed it. This is by far the best hotel on the beach. There are some other nice hotels in Lamai but none are close to the main street. If I am back in Samui again I will definitely be staying here

Pros: The view, the service and the location...and the room
Cons: Didn't have warm water for a couple of days...but it's so hot in Thailand, it didn't really matter. Showers were refreshing!
Location: Near the sea and shops/restaurants
It's not even fair to call this place a hotel, it is far more than that. Ammatarra Pura is amazing, it's the perfect location, near to shops and restaurants (but no noise) and also close to the sea. It could not have been better, we will definitely be returning...and may be bringing some friends so we can show off this jewel. The staff were very attentive, an army of them dropped in everyday to polish the window and make everything look brand new! Food was good, swimming pool was extravagant, but well used by us, and the overall feel to the place was very special...I still can't think how we can top it, if we go somewhere else, no joke!

Idyllic hotel, brilliant for families and couples

Posted Aug 9, 2012
Pros: The attention to detail
Location: The feel is more 'resort' than hotel. It feels very relaxed, and people between the ages of 16 to 30 may find it too quiet if not on honeymoon.
The Ammatara Pura Pool Villas is absolutely beautiful, and a brilliant place to stay. We would primarily recommend it to families with young children, honeymooners, romantic couples and people who want a quiet, relaxing stay in attractive surroundings. Each of the rooms has an extensive list of facilities, including a well appointed kitchen with an electric cooking hob, microwave, washing machine, fridge with freezer compartment (partly stocked with 'mini-bar' type contents, plus plates and cutlery for two and kitchen utensils, bottle opener, cooking knives, spatulas etc BIG bath with Jacuzzi function, separate shower, writing desk complete with a desktop PC with internet access, wi-fi, dining table for two, LCD TV complete with a DVD player with USB connection
