Ammatara Pura Pool Villa is definitely the best hotel for people who want to relax and to stay in a true paradise. The location is very convenient : just a few meters away from the ocean and twenty meters from the nearest restaurant. If you wish, you can go to the town in a tuc-tuc (very small carriage) in five minutes. The staff is friendly and nice, their smiles made us enjoy the holiday even more! The rooms have unique and unusual design with Thai atmosphere and a private pool. The breakfast is very tasty, there is an enormous choice of both Thai and European dishes. We visited Ammatara Pura in November, and we will never forget this tropical paradise. If you doubt if you should visit this place or not, just think about colorful flowers, warm ocean, tasty food, tropical rains, big pools, beautiful rooms, and all the experiences that you will receive and make the right decision.

If it has to be Thailand and it has to be Koh Samui then it has to be Ammatara Pura!! The resort felt vey exclusive, I think there are 18 villas altogether and even at full occupancy the pool area was always fairly quiet. There are an abundance of sun loungers in different locations around the pool area, it's very easy to get your choice of sun lounger. We opted for a Garden View villa and were amazed at how much space there was. The outside shower takes a bit of getting used to but after a while you wouldn't have it any other way, it's very private. The outside space was very impressive, a private plunge pool and covered dinning/sitting area. The location of the resort is the best spot on Lamai beach. We walked the length of Lamai beach several times and always found the resort end the least busy.

We ate out every night on the main Had Lamai Road, this is about 1 mile away. But didn't have to pay for taxis since the resort will drop you off and pick you up in their Tut Tut free of charge. We'd recommend Bondi Aussie Bar & Grill if you want a break from Thai food.

There's also a Tesco nearby where you can pick up supplies, again Tut Tut to and from was free of charge.

The only improvement I can suggest is the breakfast. The continental selection, pastries, coffee, tea, fresh fruit smoothies etc were always very good but I did miss not having a Full English breakfast which was not explicitly available on the menu.

I'd like to give a special mention to the following staff members:

Praew and Tle for giving exceptional service around the pool area.
Steven and Jason for providing excellent front of house services i.e. where to eat, what to see etc.
Ten for providing first class Tut Tut service to and from Had Lamai road.

We stayed here on March and it was AMAZING! Fortunately, we have travelled all around the world and we had never been in a place like this one. It´s simply SPECTACULAR. Once you arrive to the apartment, you realize that you are in a different place. All the resort is like a thai palace and you feel like if you were a king or a queen. All the decoration and the gardens are so nice and everyhting is extraordinary. We had a private pool at our villa but the main pool was most of the day really quiet so it was perfect for a very relaxing holiday!
All the staff that we met was so nice and helpful, specially a waitress at the pool area working in the afternoon (from 13h, I think) and also a waiter at the breakfast. Sorry, I don´t remember the names...
My only little complaint is that the lounges and the sunshades at the beach were not in a very good condition, but this was a minor "problem".
We would go back to this amazing beautiful resort for sure!

Room Tip: I think all the apartments must be great!

The Ammatura Pura is an amazing hotel, so beautifully styled. The duplex type villas with there own pool are a real treat for those who long for something more traditional feeling than the usual run if the mill, glass and steel Hiltons and Sheratons. Peace and serenity are the watchwords here. The villas are huge although only accomodate one Thai sized, King bed but have there own mini kitchens and Fiji style outside showers. I huge spa bath is also provided. Service is very good although a little short of excellent during my stay and the management are extremely helpful and accomodating. The beach is very good and the water my clearer than even closer to Lamai, which is an easy beach walk away. This really is a resort for those that value privacy whilst still requiring all the amenities of a first class hotel. I strongly recommend it to singles, couples and families with well behaved children.
