Stunning views!”

Stunning views, a nice sea breeze and friendly staff.

I very much enjoyed my stay at Amaresa. I have only been staying in the new bungalows, which are beautiful and really makes the most of the surrounding views. Everything is nice and clean, and because of the breeze not too many mosquitos. The resort is only 10 min walking from Haad Rin and on some nights you can hear the music from the parties, depending on the direction of the wind and location of your cabin. Mainly it will be the sound of the ocean that you hear. The food is very tasty and reasonably priced and the family who runs the resort is pleasent and helpful. If you like myself prefer unpretentious resorts rather than fancy ones, this place is highly recommended.

Amazing views, good food, nice rooms.”

Food and Comfort.

The resort is lovely with a very friendly staff and outstanding food. There are great views of the sea from bungalow porches, and the place is a short walk from Haad Rin. The rooms were very comfortable with a built in bathroom, unlike some other bungalows. Great place to stay wether a solo traveler, couple, or family. If you expect to wake up and walk right onto the beach this is not the place to stay, but if you do not mind the walk, Amaresa appeared to be the best option compared to some of the places along the beach. Great value.

Best vacation ever”

Garden

Wonderful place with incredible sea views , beautiful gardens and a super bar. We booked for 2 nights because it was our first visit of Koh Phangan and we planned to search for something else , but after searching decided to stay, because the place is really wonderful . The hotel grounds are very well appointed, with light and romantic corners, very cozy. Far from the beach , but every two hours there are free transportation from the hotel. Bathed several times on the rocks at the bottom of the hotel - fun, but can be scratched when you come out of the sea. Probably one of the best places on the island .

Arrived in Ko Phangan without really knowing how to get to this place. We called their number and they were really helpful on the phone. Amaresa is a bit far off, the road leading up to the hotel is pretty bumpy, but they have a driver who takes you up and down that bumpy bit and drops you off at the city center in Haad Rin. We stayed there 2 nights and they didn't clean our room during this period. However the staff was really helpful and the food up there was good. It is quite high up on a hill so you get a beautiful view to wake up to every morning.

what a view”

the view and the bungalows

The view here is sensational. It is on a pinacle and you can watch both the sunrise and sunset from this resort. We loved the little bungalows. Only complaints are that the hot water didn't work and when we asked about it a young fellow came down and we were scared for his life as he shoved a screwdriver into a power point. The hot water worked for a moment but failed again. Also the hammock on the balcony was a bit rotton and I wouldn't trust it. There were some adorable swing seats around the place for relaxing and admiring the view. It was a ten minute walk to haad rin but we didn't mind this as it was nice to be able to get away from the party town if we chose. We would stay here again.

Lovely hotel, we stayed in the more expensive rooms, the view was amazing and the room was lovely, very big! Food here is outstanding - mostly Thai menu. The only thing is the walk up the hill, it is only 10mins into haad Rin which for us was great as we didn't want to stay on the beach as it is so noisy.

Nice big room & view but bad road to the hotel”

Magnificent balcony view overlooking the sea.

Overall the hotel with ocean view bungalow air con is nice. My friend & i enjoyed our stay there. The bungalow is new, clean room & since that the hotel is on the hill, it has magnificent view. The staff is friendly & helpful accept for the room during my time of stay, we can only use the TV to watch DVD, no satellite TV. The hotel is quite secluded from Haad Rin town, the road to the hotel is really bad, it is like going for an off road. You can only commute to the hotel by walking or 4wd car & if you were to rent a motorcycle be very careful & make sure you know how to ride one properly cause a friend of mine fell down from the bike going down the hill from the hotel. For girls that wants to stay there, i recommend for you guys to go in a group, cause the road to the hotel is quite dark at night & there's only light on certain stretch of the road.

We had the best Christmas ever at Ameresa,they were so polite and accommodating. The room was small but very clean and in a tree house-which was so beautiful! It was pretty quiet BUT 5 minutes walk from Had Rins full moon party-and easy enough to stumble home from! If that wasn't perfect enough,down the Jill (5 minutes was a quiet,secluded paradise beach (Leila) with hammocks in the trees,crystal clear waters. I didn't want to leave.

On top of the hill a pretty resort. A bit of a heavy walk to reach the hotel, though. The staff was amazing. But the huts are simple & in need of renovation. Just a 15-minute-walk to fool moon party and plenty of bars, clubs, shops & local restaurantes there. Close to Haad Rin parties, but fairly quiet.

Peaceful hilltop bungalow ”

Quiet, convenient to town and beautiful rooms.

This is a small family run resort which sits atop a hill, beautifully overlooking sunrise beach. Clean modern rooms with hot water, small refrigerator and television. There is a free shuttle provided to and from hotel to town every 2 hours from 7am - 7pm. It is a steep walk, but only takes 15 minutes to walk into town. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Last but not least, the included breakfast options are vast and delicious! I would certainly recommend staying here if you would like to experience full moon atmosphere, but want to return to your peaceful room at the end of the night.

I enjoyed my stay at the Amaresa. I booked a room with a beautiful view of the ocean. Watching the sunrise from my room was breathtaking. Relaxing on the dock was awesome and private. There is also snorkeling right by the large rocks where the dock is. No beach though. The room had large windows that filled the room with natural light. High ceilings and cold a/c. The hotel is accessible by a long dirt road. Renting a scooter is highly recommended otherwise it is a long way to and from town.

the view from the rooms, breakfast, access to the beach

I was disappointed with this hotel as the ocean view bungalows are beautiful in the photos but the photos to do not show that the bathrooms are not completed and are old, not tiled and in urgent need of renovation. The beds in my room were hard. I mean hard as a board hard. I normally do not write negative things but for the price of these rooms compared to others in Haad Rin there should be a level of comfort in these rooms. The beds make that impossible. The staff were friendly but forgetful and I had difficulties with my room being cleaned. It wasn't done by 4pm and when I asked for it to be cleaned the cleaner did so but failed to leave tea, coffee, water or sugar. There is also a free car ride to the towen of Haad Rin but when I wanted to take it the driver was nowhere to be found. I opted to walk as it was 10 minutes down the hill to the beach. The hotel does not offer at least a one way ride back to he port Tong Sala which many other hotels do. Overall not worth the money.

Dear Samantha, Thanks for your review. We feel bad that you suffered from hardness of the mattress of the bed in your room. We very rarely get complaints about our beds and mattresses which are at par with the standards of the hospitality industry. We will carefully monitor the situation and if more guests complain, we will not hesitate to change to a more softer type of mattress. We can inform you that the bathrooms have undergone a renovation and new tiling since your visit. We are constantly training and sharpening our staff and improving our services. We will definitely take up your comments and incorporate them in our staff training program to make sure that these incidents do not happen again. the management

good location, but simple and old huts”

friendly staff, walking distance to haad rin bars and beaches, price

The owner is very helpful and friendly. You need to walk/drive up a pretty steep dirt road to get to the hotel, but you will have a great and peaceful view on the ocean up there. The hotel does not have a beach, its a 5min walk to beautiful and quiet leela beach. The hotel is in 15min walking distance to all the bars and beaches of haad rin. So if you want to go out there but still return to a quiet hotel this is the place to stay. We had the cheapest hut and it was full of termites - we were too scared to use the balcony even, because it was all eaten up by them. The bathroom is very simple and smelly. The more expensive huts looked alot better, so it might make sense to upgrade.
