Pimalai Resort & Spa in Ko Lanta, Thailand

Pimalai Resort & Spa is located on the southern tip of Koh Lanta, far from the north’s commercial buzz. Here the buzz comes from cicadas inhabiting dense tropical vegetation, where contemporary Thai-style rooms and villas nestle into the hillside. Rich orange, pink and lime green Thai fabrics complement dark teakwood flooring and rattan curtains, and throughout the property, pagodas and infinity pools conjure tranquility. At the base of the hills, a wide swath of white-sand beach leads to the Andaman Sea.

Lounge on a daybed on the shores of an azure bay and work up an appetite for lunch, a chicken salad sandwich with an Asian twist of pakchoy, lime and sweet chili dressing. Board a boat bound for Koh Lanta National Marine Park, whose rocky cliffs are home to mammoth monitor lizards and curious macaques. Hike in undisturbed wilderness. Return to the resort for a sundowner perched high above Ba Kantiang Bay.

What an amazing experience this resort offers! I'm so excited to write my review as there are so many things travelers should know :) We booked 4 nights for relaxing in a private pool villa (villa 603) located at the highest part of the resort. The holiday starts at the arrival at Krabi airport where the resort arranged the private transportation till their place. It includes a private car or shared minivan - depending on number of customers - till their private Jetty boat - around 45 minutes; once there with a private boat we reached the resort - other 45 minutes. The hospitality of Pimalai team was super, flowers and welcome drink on the beach and at the check in lobby and a complementary bottle of wine with fresh fruits was ready in our villa. The villa is furnished of everything with complementary water and coffee, the view is amazing on sea and jungle. Complementary pick up service for any transfer inside the resort cause it's located on a jungle hill so would be quite hard going up & down without it! Breakfast for villas customers is served at Seven Seas, the highest restaurant of the resort where the view is incredible and unforgettable with blue sea & sky and their infinity pool .. it seems to be in paradise touching the sky with fingers. Service is excellent with a great buffet including hot and cold sweet & salty ingredients, a noodle soup corner and an eggs one too. Actually we expected something more considering the level of the place as the quality of the food is not that high like this 5 starts resort. Other restaurants are available in the resort and I will review them properly. The SPA is in the middle of the jungle and the quality of massages is very high. I also had a free class of Thai massage basic lesson. There are also few sport activities available on the beach. We would not going back to the reality.. but we did! Pimalai organized the transfer to the airport in order to arrive there around 1 hour before the departure enjoying a late check out and few hours more in our villa. We live in Thailand and we know very well what kind of service the country offers, here A M A Z I N G is the right word for describe it.

We stayed in the Pimalai by chance as we had booked another hotel on the Island of Koh Lanta however when we arrived at that one it wasn’t what we expected. We frantically were searching for another hotel on the island and came across the Pimalai. It said on the website there were no rooms however we rang up and luckily they had one spare. We were collected from the previous hotel and drove to the Pimalai and from the moment we got out of the car we were in heaven. We were greeted with a lemon grass drink and shown to our room which was amazing. The food was incredible, the atmosphere was incredible and the sunsets were INCREDIBLE. Pure luxury. We will definitely be returning to this hotel if we ever return to Thailand. Thank you Pimalai for transforming our stay on the island of Koh Lanta.

We have chosen Pimalai for our wedding location and so happy that we did - it was an amazing experience, they have outdone themselves not just on our special day but also during our 4 night stay. Pimalai is really worth all the money you are paying for it. Rooms: The rooms have a modern clean design and are cleaned 2x a day. AC works well and is quiet so you get a good night sleep in their comfy beds Property: Very large and well looked after estate. The property is right by the beach and offers several restaurants and bars with great views, along with the gym, library and several pools. Beach: Clean sandy stretch with sun beds and umbrellas, the seabed is sandy unlike some other beaches on the island which are quire rocky Spa: The spa makes you feel like you are miles away from any civilization, one of the best spa experiences I have in Thailand. The masseuses are very professional. If you are staying at the resort, you have to try the spa! Wedding: Last but not least - Pimalai can create an amazing wedding experience, so if you are considering them for you wedding or vow renewal location, don't hesitate. They have though of every detail and made our wedding a very smooth event. All the guests were amazed at the beautiful wedding location and the quality of the food provided during the wedding dinner. Couldn't have wished for a better place to hold out wedding. Thank you!

We stayed in a one bedroom villa for two nights and wished we had booked for longer. The room is very large...we didn't really even go into our 'lounge area'. The swimming pool was a bit colder than the main pool, but that was because it only got into the full sunshine around 8 am. The view was to die for! I know that the rooms at the hotel are being upgraded, but I couldn't see any issue with the rooms other than a bit of rust in the pool (wouldn't have noticed it if it weren't for another review) and a slightly odd choice of colour for the bathroom tiles (yellow?). I was a bit scared of booking a room that I knew would need a buggy to get to and from (we have had issues with waiting 15 min for a buggy in other hotels), but they turned up really fast! We had room service twice, as we wanted to make the most of the room. The price of the food was good considering you are in a 5 star hotel. We ate out of the hotel the rest of the time. Tip, the 711 down in the town does a pretty good bottle of bubbly to enjoy in your private pool while watching the sunset! The staff we met were lovely at the hotel, especially those at breakfast in the seven seas (worth getting a hillside villa just for this breakfast view every morning). The breakfast was great, the only niggles being there should be a la carte eggs, there are just too many people waiting around for them...for the price of the hotel I don't want to wait 5 min in a queue! Also there should be a glass of bubbly served with the breakfast, as most of the other top hotels in the area in Thailand are now doing this. We were taken by 'private' speed boat (no other guests were leaving at the same time as us) to the airport, and it was the most smooth journey ever. Next time we will stay at the Pimalai the whole stay, not having to get the ferry is worth it! Also, as the top swimming pool is gorgeous, and anyone can sit around it (i.e. you don't need to be in the top part of the resort), we are going to book a deluxe room, and save some money for the happy hour cocktails!

What a wonderful place. Rooms are beautifully appointed and subtlety blended into natural surroundings. Two incredible infinity pools and immaculate service. We ate dinner in the seven seas and it was exceptional - very reasonable value for the location and quality of food. More hit and miss at the rak talay. My wife had a very good crab, but my squid was more of a miss. Cocktails hit the spot and we enjoyed a go at paddle boarding. Several fun bars a short walk away. We will definitely be back!
