    Shangrala ”

    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

    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.

    Amazing resort with a quiet beach”

    We are a family of five with three kids and stayed in one of the two bedroom villas. The transport from the airport is extremely helpful and requires around 1.5 hours to navigate the distance from Krabi. Given the seclusion, it is well worth the transport and distance. We dined at each of the restaurants on the resort with meals ranging from 180-600 baht per person. Kids meals were in the 180-240 baht range. The prices were more than surrounding restaurants. The breakfasts were excellent while the lunch and dinner foods were at or above average. All prices were subject to the 10% resort fee plus 7% VAT. We found the 10% resort fee on everything to be frustrating when the prices are already more than double, almost triple, typical prices in Thailand. The spa has excellent workers who have expert knowledge of muscles and physiology. the prices were about 10 times more than services outside the resort (2000-4000 baht +10%/7% fees and taxes). Overall, we highly recommend this resort.

    This was my family’s 3rd trip to this resort, and each time we come we realize we aren’t interested in trying anywhere else. The best part might be the amazing breakfast and Outstanding service, including transportation to and from the airport. Harris was especially helpful when we were at the beach. In Room dining service is great! Very prompt and the clean up afterwards which is good for families who don’t want to haul the kids to a restaurant. Patrons of those restaurants should be grateful!

    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!

    Pimalai Perfection!”

    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!

    perfect hideaway”

    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.
