This hotel is magical. The beach is stunning. If you come here you will not be disappointed. Only two reasons why you should not come here (1) if you want to party until 4.00am in the morning because you will the only ones awake or (2) if you are scared of real wildlife because you will see plenty of it....

Dear Gufcfootballfan, You are very kind indeed…I am happy to know that you and your family enjoyed the stay with us. Regarding our resort location, you are absolutely correct. The Andaman is further away from the main touristic areas…and because so many of the trees and fauna were protected and maintained from the very start, the wildlife had no reason... More

A friend and I spent ten days at the Andaman Hotel in mid-July. We both thought the hotel was excellent in almost every respect. The staff were very welcoming and courteous. The setting of the hotel – amongst dense rainforest and on a beautiful beach – was outstanding; and even better than we had imagined from looking at pictures and... More

We stayed for 5 nights on an all inclusive package. We loved the hotel and the beach was stunning. Our sea view room had the best view in the hotel (better than the suites) and we spent each day relaxing, drinking and eating. However, the rooms were not serviced well. Housekeeping comes in at least 3 bursts through the day.... More

The one thing I loved about the hotel was the Coral Nursery, where it provided a free snorkeling experience in their very own coral nursery which has crabs, lobsters, fishes, and corals. The water is outsourced from the sea, so its salty, and a experienced trainer brings you down with gear into the snorkeling area, which was an unforgetable experience.... More

How can people actually complain? Got all the best wildlife, crabs and coral, monkeys and lizards. To say it's in the rainforest and all the corridors and public areas are open, it's incredibly clean. Definitely recommend the sea view rooms, the view is just wow.

We returned to the Andaman after 2 years and rediscovered why we found it so memorable in the first place. The forest around the hotel has matured since and wildlife abounds. This is a resort truly within the rain forest. Rooms all overlook the sea or rain forest and with small step out balconies. Never open the doors for that... More

Fantastic customer service, an awesome beach and great, secluded location. The food is expensive for Malaysian standard, and not necessarily value for money, but I can understand why the hotel would increase the rates (there aren't many alternatives!). Overall, highly recommended.
