An unforgettable holiday”

We had the best time at Pimalai. Everything from the airport transfer experience, dining options, resort facilities are top-notch. We stayed at a 2BR pool villa. The monkeys came to play in our pool in the morning and it was quite a sight! I must applaud the hospitality staff who are absolutely professional, warm and forward thinking. This is truly the beat resort experience we have had so far!

The best resort I have ever been to! ”

This trip was to celebrate the end of my chemotherapy. (I have a cancer) I requested the little surprise event before when I and my husband arrived at the resort. The staff of Pimalai had perfectly prepared a big screen and romantic decoration on the beach, which I requested. We made an unforgettable memory at night. All the staffs of Pimalai Resort were wonderfully perfect. Everyone was friendly and generous. I felt a real happiness and joy. Thank you Pimalai and I am sure I will come back soon.

Instead of wishing I could stay longer, I actually did.”

Beautifully maintained property. Quite more expansively laid out than imagined. Yet still felt intimate. Staff was very well trained. Almost too much. If that makes sense. Ideal location. Very clean and safe beach front. Food was good. Would recommend to keep it as local and authentic as possible and not adjusted to foreigners. Their papaya salad was most excellent. Breakfast was plentiful. Didn't mind walking up the hill to it for that incredible view. They also offer shuttle service. Didn't take as it felt less organic. Their pools are a wonderful. The view onto the Andaman Sea is spectacular. But this is where a detail was missing. Being at the edge of those pools (especially the hillside pool) and immersed beyond beauty you're reminded of reality by seeing an unkept and poorly landscaped section of the property. Some details could be sorted out but during this time of Covid hesitant travellers, Pimalai went above expectations. Offering as much possible during this economically challenging times for the travel industry. A challenge is to create this balance between a barefoot chill resort with the formality that comes with standards at the same time. Thank you Pimalai! Was absolutely divine. xxo

Can’t find any fault”

We stayed for 5 nights and the resort ticked all the right boxes. All the staff are polite and helpful. Room is spacious and clean. Fabulous restaurants. The beach is not as calm and turquoise as what you get at Phi Phi but it is quiet and peaceful. I observed the staff laying out the beach towels so carefully that they should all be aligned and straight as to be aesthetically pleasing. I could easily recommend the resort. I’ve stayed in many in Thailand and this one is up there with the Amans and the Six Senses in terms of service.
