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.

My girldfriend and i stayed a one bedroom pool villa in August for a week. Well the only think to say is the place is fantastic, the room was amazing, the view is just breathtaking ! Everything was perfectly orchestrated from the arrival at the airport, the transfer by mini van and boat to the hotel, the room check in, the departure to the airport. It s obviously the most beautiful hotel in Koh Lanta The resort is amazingly maintained, the staff is fantastic, speaks very good english, very friendly, always available and professional. Great room service! The restaurants offers a very raffined Thai and western cuisine with always an attention to details. I would like to thank particularly their GM, Mr Franck De Lestapis who gave us a lot of advices about what to do on in the resort and on the island. He is a great professional who will make his best to make sure you have an amazing stay. Thanks again to all the the Pimalai team, thanks to all all of you we ve had a unforgettable stay in this stunning place. At Pimalai everything is beauty , peace and luxury. We will for sure come back in this ... Heaven on earth !

I’m sitting here with my new wife, looking over the stunning bay for a bittersweet final breakfast before we leave for a new locale. This is the second trip we’ve made to Pimalai... We loved the first so much that we decided to bring forty of our favourite people back here to celebrate our marriage with us! More than a few will be coming back here to make new memories of their own. This place... It’s a wonderful experience. The location is superb, the view from the seven seas is stunning. Beautiful jungle envelops the back and sides and the bay with its glance towards the back of Phi Phi Don through the Oriental roofs marking the hilltops is something to behold. The second stay has been no less captivating than the first. It’s been markedly better! The restaurants are fantastic. Breakfast is well appointed and caters for a variety of cultural leanings and we found ourselves up and out of bed early every day to tuck into it. Happy hour at the seven seas for sunset was a highlight. The kids swam for hours by the beach pool and we were looked after at every turn by the beautiful staff. Our experience was a little different in that we also got married here. Mirko and his team were extremely helpful. Every guest felt like a vip, the cocktails and the food were as we hoped of course but there were so many little things that every guest experienced that made us feel as though management could see the world through our eyes and cater for what we might need or want and deliver it without us having to ask. I actually don’t want to divulge too much about the service we received here because it would spoil the surprise! The general manager Franck is a regular at breakfast and he stops by every table to keep tabs on how everyone is going. It’s a very welcome sight. The staff new all our names by heart and high fives the kids in the morning and shared a warm hug with us when some of our family left. The grounds are simply beautiful. We’ve had beautiful sunshine here for many of the days but also some pretty epic storms on others.... there is an army of staff who attend to the grounds keeping them meticulous despite some of the aftermath of heavy winds. Koh Lanta itself is a beautiful little island. Old town is worth a trip. We hired scooters and trekked around the island. Got massages and took day trips from Saladin pier, checked out some of the National Park to the south. We’ve visited the cave on the way to old town which was an experience all it’s own! We’ve had a beautiful resort experience and a beautiful time in local conditions all in the same place. Phi phi is close... a little closer than it is to Phuket by boat it seemed to us. We booked everything we needed trip wise either from the hotel or from a little travel agent located up the beach behind Why Not Bar (which we also became regulars at!) Really and truly, this is a special place. We’ll be back. Our friends will be back. Thank you for making one of the most special weeks of our lives all the more perfect!

It took us a while to wait for the hotel airport transfer to pick us up from Krabi airport as our flight arrived 2 hours earlier than expected (nearly 3.20am in the morning to wait for the airport transfer at 8am). However, once we were picked up by the hotel staff, the whole trip just got smooth and relaxing. It took an hour to drive to the hotel's private pier, then another 30ish mins by speed jetty (which btw was an amazing boat trip!!) and another 30 mins or so to drive to hotel once arriving in Lanta. For sure hotel staff were very friendly, nice and attentive. Amazing views either from the two restaurants on the hill top or the one just at the beach. Very nice pools too... Overall we had a great stay with the hotel and if you are looking for somewhere away from the crowds, this is absolutely a good choice. The only downside is probably that, it is close to nowhere so you need to do more homework for more activities outside of the hotel.

I don't think it get's much better. Unfortunately I think Thailand can occasionally catch a bad wrap for the tourist hoards of Phuket and the Phi Phi Islands - but Ko Lanta is not the case. The island is a bit "out there" in order to access the hotel, but that is part of the adventure. You won't see lady boys running around or streets of brothels - what'll you see is a small fishing villages and smiling locals abound. Pimalai is the quintessential island resort, isolated and pure natural beauty. From the beach to the hotel grounds everything is pristine. The food is exceptional. We ate a different type of curry every night and had no complaints. The breakfast was also delicious on so many levels. Book the Ko Ha sunset trip. It was such a great experience. The snorkeling is excellent and when our boat pulled up, the last of the boats were gone and it was our own snorkeling oasis. Drinking a beer with new friends while watching the sunset on the boat ride back, is about the best way to cap off a good trip. Oh yeah, go to the spa and get a massage. You wont regret it

When arriving from Krabi (instead of being directly in Lanta), the journey to the Pimalai is already taking you into another world… The hotel arranges a private speed boat to take you from their private pier to the hotel and the boat travels through the east coast of Ko Lanta. The journey is beautiful, you pass by a number of small islands and that puts you in a true peaceful holiday type of mindset! The hotel itself is located on the south side of Ko Lanta and is nested on the hill overlooking the ocean, straight in front of the sunset. From a location point of view, I would say that it is ideal if you are looking to relax and enjoy peace and serenity. All in all, Lanta is not a very big island and you can easily drive to Lanta main town with a motorbike (although be careful as the roads have a number of potholes that can be tricky at night or when it pours). If you are looking to eat/drink outside the hotel, there is a small village at the end of the beach with some food and drink options that should suit the most. We stayed in a pool villa on the high side of the resort. The villa was really really nice with a large plunge pool overlooking the ocean. The view was a true beauty. The outdoor space was super nice, with a flat lie bed underneath some wooden hut so you could stay there during the hottest hours. The villas are actually the villas, as you have 2 houses on each side of the pool, so if you are looking to stay there with 2 kids, it is kind of perfect – for a couple it’s kind of useless. The room was nicely decorated, mostly wood. The blackspot is the bathroom which is very outdated and would deserve a full renovation. Breakfast was exactly what you can expect, top breakfast with everything you can dream of. I made a separate review of the main restaurant, Seven Seas, which were such a great discovery, with top notch food and top notch service! We used quite extensively the spa of the hotel which is located close to the beach. The spa menu was great and the design of the spa area was very nice, with lots of flowers, water and small houses where you have your treatments. Although we enjoyed our spa treatments, we were a bit disappointed because not all therapists were equally good and we had the impression that some therapists were kind of “junior”, which is fine, as long as you are informed, which was not the case. Compared to some other hotels nested on hills (such as FS Samui), the transportation at the Pimalai is a bit more cumbersome as you go from one area to the other with cars while FS uses golf cars, which are more pleasant. But the Pimalai is in an area that is steeper, so maybe this explains that. Also, the finishing details are a bit less manicured than at FS Samui, but Pimalai remains a top spot!! All the staff was very friendly and always nice, and this point is always a huge plus during any stay in such paradisiac location! All in all, we had a very good experience at the Pimalai, but it was one notch below some other top luxury hotels in Thailand. We would certainly recommend it to anyone looking to spend some time in Lanta.
