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.

Wow, what a place. This is the top of the food chain. The lush natural landscape and hardly a notice of that fact that you are surrounded by a massive Hotel, property. It blends in so well. The service is the best I've ever come across in my travel. They are there to assist you with anything they can that comes with your stay here. And beyond. So ask. Went to the spa. Worth every penny. Again the best spa treatments I've ever recieved. The breakfast is off the chart. Daily it is one of the best meals at any hotel I've been too. Lunch by the pool or beach was amazing. Room service meals. Fantastic. We had pizza and pasta Carbonara one night. It turned our room into a Iltalian deli on The Spanish Steps. The preparation. The quality was amazing. I'm really disappointed we did not have dinner at the main room as I know the Chef's are some of the best money can hire. Of course our room was a treat beyond belief. Like you would dream having when on a vacation. Top notch twice a day cleani
Nothing Short of Amazing”
Everything about this hotel is amazing. The room (deluxe) was secluded and beautiful, all facilities were top notch, the breakfast was great, and the staff were so helpful and friendly. I couldn't recommend this hotel enough, especially for a honeymoon. We were so sad leaving!
True 5-Star Luxury”
We spent 5 wonderful nights here. Our room was the upper half of a town house and felt huge and luxurious. The grounds are beautiful with a private beach and bar/restaurant from where we watched the sunset every night. The gym was great, the infinity pools were amazing (and surprisingly big), and they had plenty of activities to offer.
The most incredible experience I have ever had. Highly recommend this hotel and I have booked again to visit. The service and facilities are of the highest standards. Truly relaxing and peaceful. Amazing place
We had the most amazing stay at this resort. It was our honeymoon and we were very happy we chose Pimalai! Everything was wonderful - from the beautifully designed room, to the right-temperature infinity pools, restaurants serving great food and wine (we tried all 4), to amazingly courteous, helpful and caring staff. They must have incredible management behind the scenes because everything functions so smoothly and efficiently - yet so effortlessly! We loved this place and we will be back!
Exceeding every expectation”
Simply wonderful. The resort, the staff, the amenities, it's all superb. Surrounded by the jungle this resort does everything not to stand out. Understated luxury at it's finest. We loved every second of our stay and will no doubt return.
Amazing hotel with amazing service”
We stayed at 2 bedroom pool villa for 3 nights. It is the best hotel stay I have ever had. Amazing view, and service. All the staff members are very polite and helpful. The view is breathtaking. Our rooms are cleaned twice daily. The breakfast is delicious and has tons of stuff. 5 star facility and service, we just loved it.
Great resort on a beautiful island ”
The Pimalai is a beautiful resort set on a beautiful island. The room was nicely appointed and the grounds were gorgeous. All the staff were so helpful and nice. We enjoyed many meals at the hotel and also walked down the beach to other great local bars and restaurants. The only thing that could have made it better would have been some additional complimentary activities.
My husband and I loved this hotel. Everyone was so friendly, breakfast buffet was great and all the amenities were excellent! The deluxe room was spacious and there was free bottled water. I can’t wait to go back!
Good location, Good service, excellent staff
A wonderful retreat from the busy world. Staff were wonderful. Beach, sun,thai food ”
Would like to hv tried spa but sg prices....too expensive. Boat trip to & from ko lanta amazing . Also heard from other guests sunset cruise excellent. M thai boxing and thai cooking classes were vry professional. We stayed put cause need to hire transport to get around island. Tge thai food at resort resturant were excellent.
Staff is so friendly and amiable. Everything went very well during our stay. Made our trip unforgettable and enjoyable. The view is marvellous and tranquil. Must be back there if i had a trip of Lanta.
Outstanding setting but poor service left us cold”
We wanted to love Pimalai but our experience was tempered by poor communication. We were travelling elsewhere in Thailand so we wanted to meet at the jetty instead of the airport (it was explained in their intro email that this was possible). We exchanged many emails and had several phone calls and ended up being sent to an incorrect location an hour away. It was really stressful and we arrived pretty grumpy having forked out for an expensive taxi in a rush to meet the boat. When we complained they did upgrade us to a villa, however, which was beautiful. The views were amazing and the breakfast was great. The spa was sensational for the couples package we did and the spa setting and service was generally amazing - but I also had a facial that was not so good. The service was great for mechanical things like room service but it wasn't great for non-routine things like questions about laundry. We have stayed at other similar places for similar money which impressed us more.
+: Wonderful resort with great seaview, I booked villa with swimming pool it has a living room, a small pool and two bedrooms, it was really lovely. Couldn't expect more in this price range. -: Only default was before the visit, I wrote several e-mails to confirm the transportation but each reply offers something different and provided lots of irrelevant information, hopefully when staff replied they could be more care with what information they copied to the client.
We had a wonderful newly renovated Deluxe room with a sea view - they are spacious and comfortable and easy to hang out in at any time of day. The walk to the beach thru the jungle is heavenly and peaceful and the rolling waves provide a great source of entertainment. Multiple food and beverage operations onsite at AUD $ dining prices but cheaper options at either end of the beach. We tried them all to vary the experience. The staff are highly trained and engaging and every interaction is a positive experience. Thank you Pimalai, we will be returning!
To stay at Pimalai you have to be able to endure two long car rides (quite pleasant actually) and a very short boat ride (5 min) to reach the island. The hotel has their own little pier and we were warmly greeted by the hotel staff, both at the airport and the pier. The moment we stepped into Pimalai we were so enthralled by the beauty of the place and it made up for those car rides ( a total of around 1 hour and 45 minutes). Our cottage was fronting the sea and the whole environment was so peaceful and restful. Luckily for us we were there after the Golden week holiday in China, so the hotel was not experiencing full occupancy. All the staff were just superb and courteous. The receptionist was from the Philippines and spoke good English, was helpful and always ready with a smile. We went to the hotel's spa as well and it was full of greenery and very tranquil. The massage was good as well. Will recommend Pimalai to anyone going to Krabi.
Amazing palace with the best staff”
Pimalai is a little far to get to but really worth the time. The facility is beautiful, with one of the best sunset view anywhere. The staff is very friendly and courteous, well-trained by the management. The food is good but more like Western/US price. The sea is a little rough in August, but I heard the best is around January. We had a scooter accident so unfortunately had to cut short one day. The staff was very helpful, including Mikai the director, and we even met the general manager. Highly recommended, very impressed with Thai people.
Absolutely amazing ”
Everything perfect; it is the best resort I have ever stayed in and would recommend it to anyone without a doubt. Every single detail is made to make the guest experience absolutely unforgettable! Staff really well trained and helpful.... we even got dropped to Krabi airport included in the price of the room which I found very handy.... a must!
Could be better”
This resort is stunning but loses a lot of points on key areas. The main problem is the cleaning staff who simply do not do a good enough job. I found their cleaning of the room to be nothing short of sloppy. There was visible blood spots on my bed sheet and one of the pillows that was not changed for at least 2 days. The toiletries were often not topped up and the floor was sticky for several days in a row. One day one of the cleaning staff left a filthy cleaning cloth on my clean clothes in my open suitcase which is simply not acceptable. It left my clothes damp and obviously unwearable since the cloth in question was extremely dirty. The flip side of this though, is the staff in the rest of the resort are outstanding. Notably the breakfast and restaurant staff were simply amazing. Several reviewers have said that the manager was visible and affable. I can quite honestly say we and anyone else we spoke to, did not see him, not even once. This has to be a first in such a high end reso
