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. "

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.

imgimgimg

Built within the rainforest as it meets the silver ocean strand, you would hardly know Pimalai was there. The luxury beach resort occupies 100 acres of tropical vegetation with direct access to a 900 meters stretch of pristine sandy beach and offers 121 accommodation units - Deluxe, Bayfront Deluxe, Pavilion Suite, Beach Villa and Pool Villa - all very elegantly appointed.

imgimgimg

From the mainland, it takes about 1 hour by the resort boat to reach Lanta and Pimalai but it is worth bearing this "hard strip" in order to find such a unique lost paradise in tourist Thailand. Visit once and you will return again and again.

We try to operate the transfer boats as near as possible to the following schedule. If there is a delay it is most likely due to interference by mother nature. We ask for your patience and assure you it is our intention to transfer you both to and from the resort safely and with minimum delay.

Most unfortunately & essentially for safety reasons we are not able to operate the resort boat transportation during darkness - mainly from 6.00 pm to 6.00 am.
