About Pimalai Resort & Spa

Description

This award-winning resort, nestled in a tropical forest facing a pristine white sand beach, is one of Koh Lanta’s finest. Pimalai Resort & Spa is set on 100 acres of lush greenery and directly on a stretch of unspoiled beach. The only sound you will hear is that of the rolling waves and the birds chirping. The luxurious guestrooms and villas are dotted along the gradually cascading hills, culminating in the Seven Seas Wine Bar and Restaurant and an infinity swimming pool at the top, giving guests a sweeping panoramic view of the sun setting over the bay and surrounding mountains. For those wanting to explore the island, a 10-minute walk from the hotel will take you to a local village with a handful of restaurants and bars. The Same Same But Different Restaurant, a 10-minute walk down the beach, is a hot spot with visitors here. Reservations at Pimalai Resort & Spa are simple via our secure online booking form.

Peace and relaxation
From being met at the arrivals hall at Krabi airport, to the boat transfer and through to leaving Pimalai the staff members were all welcoming and very attentive. Constant refilling of water at the poolside showed how attentive the staff were but we're never intrusive. Breakfast was wonderful with plentiful supply of wonderfully succulent fruits, fresh pastries and cooked foods. View from the hillside villas was fantastic Ovelooking Ba Kantiang bay with equally good views from the Seven Seas restaurant looking back up the hillside. Overall a wonderful stay with excellent memories.

Overrated for sure
We were delighted to head here after reading all the reviews but we were quickly disappointed after checking in. The beach wasn't as clean and there were some construction going on. The spa was definitely over priced and Their spa voucher is just a show piece. The food was awesome and reasonably priced for a 5 star resort. The staff was very strict worth their policies for example, I can't drop my pregnant wife at the lobby with the rented bike, and she was supposed to walk all the way in to the lobby. At the end of the day, we expected a lot of of this place but was disappointed. Do find alternatives if you can,

Amazing hotel that I would reccommend to anyone
Very freindly and accommodating staff and a beautiful hotel. Breakfast was one of the highlights of our stay each morning. Food was excellent and view was even better. The rooms are spacious and very nice. Great hotel on a beautiful island.

Heavenly place
Bliss bliss bliss! Beautiful beach villa and pool residence! We stayed in both. Loved the pool residence even more than the beach one but both were wonderful! One thing that Pimalai could improve on is the quality of the coffee/ cappuccino/ latte. It's pathetic. Otherwise- it's a wonderful place and would definitely go back in a heartbeat!

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING
I stayed with my partner & we could not fault a single thing. From the moment we landed in Krabi airport the service was 5 star attention to detail. Even when we returned to Krabi airport to fly home an attendant from Pimalai helped us all the way through to immigration. The grounds and accommodation was stunning, the food was to die for and the people who work there were the most lovely people we've ever met. We ate at Seven Seas & Spice n Rice which are very deserving of their status (the other restaurant was undergoing renovations) We even ordered room service a couple of nights when we were tired - but it was still just as good - the spaghetti bolognaise tasted like it came from Italy - it was beautiful! We went on a island tour organised via the resort and the guys who worked on the boat and took us snorkeling and through the emerald cave were awesome - we felt safe the entire time and having only a small group of 8 felt very personalized. We stayed in a deluxe room for 7 nights and the last night we stayed in a pool villa. The deluxe room was beautiful and comfortable - couldn't fault it. Moving up to the pool villa was another level completely - photos dont do it justice - it definitely feels like celebrity living - absolutely beautiful - only wish we had longer :) every morning breakfast was amazing - anything and everything you could want - the general manager is lovely and most mornings you will see him around greeting guests - he has done a great job with this place. Will definitely be back if we can! Will recommend to all my friends and family :) Thanks guys :)
