About this property


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.
