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.

Top class resort, with all conforts in a phantastic position of the island. immersed in a tropical garden hosting all kinds of exotic trees. Total quietness only broken by birds and frogs singing. Perfect services: transfer to the resort , rooms and restaurant services, everything is accurate. All staff is taking care of guests with the tipical oriental attitude and kindness, reserving to everyone a smile. Proposed excursions to the nearby islands are a " must do". Good level of restaurants, with a preference for the thai one. Great breakfast, both in quality and in variety. Prices adequate to the top level of the structure.

If you can visit and enjoy this remarkable place and enjoy the company of the fantastic people of Kan Tiang Beach. The combination of understated luxury and exquisite natural beauty make Pimalai quite extraordinary. Everyone in the team who we encountered was extremely kind and helpful. We had so many marvellous experiences, to mention a few; watching hermit crabs on the beach, diving with the professional and knowledgeable people of Scubafish, sailing/windsurfing across the bay, enjoying the company of geckos,frogs and monitor lizards,the songs of the birds, cicadas and frogs. The sunsets painting the sky in amazing palettes, watching a small troop of Dusky leaf monkeys in the National Park, beginning each day with the delights of The Tide Times and eating the truly wonderful breakfasts with the eagles soaring in the sky. A huge thank you to the entire team for making our time with you so exceptional!

We have just returned from (sadly only) a weeks stay at the Pimalai resort, and had the most perfect and relaxing break. All of the staff, from front of house to the gardeners, go out of their way to be friendly and helpful and are always courteous when you meet them. We were given flower garlands, fruit, rose petals on the bed, and a huge cake in recognition of a special occasion we were celebrating whilst there. The breakfast spread was extensive with choices to cater for all tastes and cultures and the views were wonderful. The food in all of the restaurants was tasty with a huge variety of options between the three depending on what you fancy. A special mention to Daew at the seven seas restaurant who went out of her way during our dinner service and remembered our names each time we saw her around the resort. Watching the amazing sunset at one of the bars during happy hour was a highlight each evening! The prices are similar to London but there is a small village at the other end of the bay where there are restaurants and bars if you ever do feel you want a change or cheaper options. Although the resort seemed large we never once felt we were in a crowd, the beach was beautifully clean and always quiet, and we never struggled to get a bed by the super relaxing pools. Finally, unfortunately, I was unwell during our stay, (I must say nothing to do with resort) and the most helpful nurse came to our room late in the evening, and gave me remedies to help - a surprisingly free service but most valued to prevent our holiday being ruined, so thank you!

We returned to Pimalai resort three years after our first stay, and the resort and its beautiful surroundings were as relaxing, welcoming and luxurious as we remembered. We were given the same room (Deluxe double room on the upper level of a bungalow) and some very nice welcome-back surprises. Even though the room is not any more the latest in 5 star hotel design, the style of the decor still remains traditional and very welcoming, so we would not mark our overall experience down due to the room condition. The hotel is divided in two parts by the local road: the lower part on the beach and the upper part on the hill with a beautiful infinity pool and breathtaking views, best enjoyed at beautiful sunset. What is so wonderful about Pimalai is that you can experience in one resort so many different and extremly beautiful settings - so make sure you do move and don't settle in the first spot you like - there are many more to be discovered! For us, the highlight of Pimalai is the beautiful 900m long beach, which feels like a private beach. Even though the hotel was fully booked during our stay, there was plenty of choice for the best spots on the beach - whether it was a sun lounger or a super comfortable sofa unter the palm trees. Also the sports centre has a great choice and plenty of equipment (paddle boards, canoes, catamarans, petong, buggy boards etc.), everything always available and free of charge, we never needed to wait for any of them. At last, we would like to specially mention the very kind and polite staff - exceptionally friendly and welcoming people who ensured that our stay at Pimalai was so relaxing and pleasant.

We've just returned from a perfect 7 day stay at this spectacular resort. Luggage is collected at the airport, with your room number tags applied and then a mind-blowing speedboat transfer to the most scenic hotel that can be imagined. The beach is out of this world with the purest sand and gentle slope into the sea.The hotel grounds are perfectly tended and it is a true pleasure to wander around them. The food is pricey but worth it.......our celebration meal and views at the Seven Seas restaurant will be talked about for a long time. Coupled with all this luxury, are the most charming staff that could be imagined. We stayed at the Layana Hotel on Koh Lanta a couple of years back, but, we feel that the Pimalai Resort is truly the No 1 in south Thailand and maybe in all Thailand. Tips :1. Change your currency on arrival at Krabi airport ( a better exchange than either the UK or the exchange in Gulf airports). 2. All rooms are perfect and all views from these rooms are fantastic. 3. Expect stunning sunsets and have your camera ready for the boat trip out to the hotel.
