|Summary of 16 reviews :||
Pimalai Resort & Spa is a luxury beach resort occupies 100 acres of tropical vegetation with direct access to a 900 meters stretch of pristine sandy beach.
Peace, Serenity, Solitude. These are the words that come to mind for Pimalai. Add to that luxury, elegance, natural surroundings and genuine friendly service. Be it for a honeymoon, a diving experience, a break from it all or even for a business meeting in Krabi then Pimalai, nestled in a lush tropical forest, is the Andaman destination to set your sights on. This exclusive beach resort combines all the right ingredients - subtle five star comforts, natural beauty and lots of space. Located well distant from crowded beaches and resorts, the only sound is that of the waves sliding in and out and slowly breaking onto the sandy shore.
Most likely the best hotel on Ko Lanta island. The hotel blends well with its natural surroundings. We stayed in a deluxe room. Both the room and bathroom were very spacious. The hotel has two beautiful infinity pools as well as a very beautiful private beach. We also used the hotel s dive center for our scuba diving. We had the best dive instructor, Avanka. We highly recommend this hotel for its accommodations and service.
We have used sawadee.com many times and would trust this site again. The hotel we booked had our (2) reservations exactly as we expected.
Best hotel on Ko Lanta. The understated elegance of this hotel makes it blend seamlessly with the beauty of its surrounding environment. The hotel offers many restaurant options and a very good breakfast as well. There are also other beach restaurants in walking distance nearby. Friendly and knowledgeable staff with very good English-speaking skills. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is a very peaceful place that makes you feel very relaxed...pure paradise.
I have a lot of confidence in sawadee.com and I would use them again.
This is a great hotel: excellent design, friendly staff and comfortable romm. There are two beautiful swimming pools, one is on the hill the other is close to the beath. You could have a very good view from the hill.
A beautiful and serene location, perfect for honeymoon couples. Service was excellent in all aspects. Staff friendly, efficient and always smiling. Excellent and varietal buffet breakfast. Rooms cleaned every day with plenty of amenities given, turn down service in the evening. If you want to eat out of the resort a walk along the beach has restaurants to choose from at very reasonable prices and good food. Very, very pleased with our stay at Pimalai.
Fantastic and reliable service as always.
Pimalai was fantastic. The place and service was in world class.
very good, 10 out of 10!!!
Absolutely fantastic, would like to go back NOW!
Easy and very helpful!
Fantastic. everything was perfect. Food at the hotel is very good and not so expensive compare to what other were saying on the different forum. Of course if you want to pay 3 USD for your meal do not go there but otherwise very reasonable.
Everything went well we just give the voucher and that was done! I will book again through this site as it is one of the cheapest one... I was scare to get the less good room but it was not the case we had what we requested ie upper room non smoking not to far from reception.
beautifull hotel, great service ,special place to visit, but very expensive. for Thiland
We stayed 5 nights at Pimalai in deluxe room which was comfortable but furniture was somewhat outdated. Not much of a cosiness factor around the hotel - this is a big complex and you are transported from one end to the other by a golf car (if you are too lazy to walk uphill). Breakfast is really good, service as well (professional but not very personal). There are a few restaurants in the complex with different food concepts - great if you want to vary thai food with fries or pasta. Also at European prices. We ate mostly at the local places around the hotel, offering 5 times cheaper good thai food. A restaurant called Same same but different at the local beach offers the best food on Kantiang Beach. The hotel pool situated high up on the hill is very nice and offers a splendind view. Overall, a nice hotel, but a bit overpriced in terms of room design -I´ve been to better 4 star hotels. This is however compensated by professional service and good range of hotel amenities.
efficient as usual
Beautiful hotel and exceptional staff. Wonderful experience. Good food and selection. Nice activities. All great except room smelled a little moldy. Housekeeping sprayed, but smell never went away. We borrowed an essential oil burner from the spa and it helped a lot. Some noise from longtails and little hotel trucks, but generally very quiet. Great diving.
Good service. Everything worked. I was surprised/disappointed that full payment was due in advance.
