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 stay at the Pimalai - the staff and views created memories for life! The resort is just fantastic - very hilly, but a bus service that takes you from room to destination and back whenever - with nothing more than a 3 minute wait - it’s a necessity, but works like clock work. We stayed 10 nights B&B, weather in March could not be faulted. Breakfast is a must, we used the seven seas restaurant and even if you are not a breakfast person, the greeting from Ying and Kaew was so genuine it would make anyone’s morning. The food was also Devine, all fresh, would suit all nationalities. The hotel has plenty of restaurants, but we did visit ‘same same’ several times, the food was great and good value, lunch and dinner. It’s just to the left of the hotel -on the beach - (if you face the sea) However, we ate in the Pimalai at least once a day and always pleased with our choices, I guess it’s expensive for Thailand, but only the equivalent to an average UK restaurant - wine is limited and expensive. The Rak Talay became our favourite, - on the beach - Mai and her team treated us so well. Very relaxed and a sense of humour that made our stay. We had a two bed pool villa - breath taking, and completely secluded as was all the accommodation. Only the Marques Monkeys overlooked us!!! It also had a big separate lounge with a bathroom, perfect for children if you needed more space. Sunsets, relaxation, food, and most of all the people. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you Pimalai, we needed you and you delivered.

What an amazing experience from start to finish. The service provided is second to none, with all staff going out of the way to make sure we were happy and always had what we needed. We stayed in a hillside villa which was fantastic, the private infinity pool had incredible views out into the ocean. The beach itself is also beautiful, as well as the breakfast! The only negative is that we could only stay for 2 nights.

First we were amazed,about how perfect the transfers were aranged.As soon as you step on board of the speedboat, the label of your roomnumber is already on your suitcase.As soon as you arrive, you already know that your holiday is gone be exceptional. And exceptional it was! Ofcourse we can not say anything about other rooms, but our hilltop villa nr. 603 was outstanding. The people working there were so friendly and correct. My husband and I had our 40 years wedding celebration and they made up the bed very special and there was a tastefull cake in the refrigerator.We spent 4 nights there, but we wish we could have stay longer. We will come back for sure!! We would like to thank all the people working there for there kindness. The restaurant spice & rice was our favorite, also because of the people working there. A special thanks for the lady serving us most of the time( even gave me a pillow for the back in my chair.). Her name was 'Kan' ( hope I pronounced it right).She was very very friendly. The area was also very beautiful, we crossed the island and think, it's the nicest part of the island. I can not stop saying a lot of positive things about Pimalai, just check out yourself, you will not be disappointed.

We stayed for 4 nights at the Pimalai as a family with an 18 month old child. Overall our experience was great. The service from this resort is just fantastic and couldn’t be faulted. From the transfers in/out which was professionally arranged for us to organising fixing issues with our room, the resort were always on hand and responded immediately. Breakfast is fantastic and the staff helping were lovely (special mention to Namphong who really is incredible, goes the extra mile and should certainly be given more responsibility than just waiting tables). The infinity pools on both levels are fantastic. The upper level infinity pool has incredible views and is the perfect place to watch the stunning sunset with a cocktail. Our room was a lower level garden view room which although was a bit dated and tired did the job in a very comfortable way. The gym is great and usually quiet. My main reservation with the resort is simply the cost of food and drink within the resort. I would head up or down the beach to some of the local places for lunch/supper. The Pimalai is a beautiful, very experienced, luxury resort with fantastic service, location, amenities.
