    This place is a Honeymooners dream! Situated on the cliffs of Koh Lanta the view is just incredible. We stayed in the pool villa and our only regret was not staying longer. The infinity pools are to die for. The staff is incredible and the food delightful. We were greeted with flowers on our bed for our honeymoon and a honeymoon cake. Everything was beautiful and romantic and we would have stayed longer if we weren't broke newly weds!!

    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.

    This was the best resort ever! The resort met us at the airport, took care of us from the moment we met them until we left. The room was amazing, nice views of the ocean and trees. The place was spotless and had so many lovely personal touches it felt like home. Thank you so much for making our stay in Thailand one of the best memories I will have for the rest of my life. The Pimalai was simply beyond words.

    +: 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.

    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 HOTEL IN THAILAND ”
    This hotel surpassed all of our expectations. We arrive in Thailand every year - already 20years, so it iwas our 20th stay in this nice country. We know many 5* hotels there and most of them are great. However this hotel has something extra. My wife and I had a feeling of utter exclusivity here. Why?: - it is amazing hotel on the beach in beautiful place in Koh Lanta. - All our staff took care of us as a VIP. The all service was on 6* level. We have the same kind of service only in one very famous hotel in Bangkok( MO). - All restaurants and food we ate was very tasty and delicious. - So everthg was great here.

    Perfect, relaxing vacation spot”
    My husband and I stayed at Pimalai for three nights and had an lovely time. We arrived via ferry from Railay and didn't contact the hotel early enough for a ferry terminal pick-up so had to take a taxi. The resort reimbursed us the full cost of our taxi ride, enough though it was our error in giving them less than 24 hours notice, which was above and beyond what we expected. The resort is a little secluded, but we liked that it was easy to walk to the little town for food and drinks. The breakfast buffet is expansive, with lots of choices, the staff was extremely accommodating and helpful and gave us advice on renting motorbikes and getting around the island. Our room was light, bright, clean, quiet comfortable. We enjoyed happy hour cocktails by the beach and the pools/beach were uncrowded even though it was mid December. The transportation the resort provides made for a very easy trip back to the Krabi airport. We could not have asked for a better experience!

    A slice of paradise”
    This is not really a 'hotel', it's so much more and we feel very privileged to have stayed 4 nights in such a wonderful place. A quiet location in the South of Koh Lanta island overlooking a great stretch of beach and out to sea for sunsets. Brilliant staff which leave a lasting impression throughout the resort. We tried all restaurants and bars, and also enjoyed the Thai cooking school (paid for activity) with chef Peng which was great fun. We also made the most of free paddle boarding and sea kayaking on offer for a little holiday exercise. Our accommodation was the bayfront deluxe room which is lower in the resort with a fantastic balcony. Very roomy and plush. Our favourite breakfasts were in the upper part of the resort (Seven Seas), 268 steps up from the lower section, but you can request an electric cart for a doorstep delivery. You feel like a rock star on the hotel transfer to Krabi via the speedboat, just adds to the overall experience. Thanks Pimalai

    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.

    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

    One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at! Staff were friendly and attentive, food was lovely and the rooms were great. Only downside was a trip to Koh Ngai for snorkelling was pretty poor and the hotel shouldn't really run the trip in the green season as there is no snorkelling to be done!

    To sum up my stay in a couple of words, this hotel is heavenly. From pick up to drop off, I can’t really fault anything with the hotel. The beach is amazing along with all the free activities one can do there, the pools were sublime with amazing views, the staff were welcoming and friendly all the time (special thanks to MK on the beach for always being there to help). Our room was the deluxe balcony room which felt very spacious with a partial view of the spectacular ocean. If I want to nitpick on something, I would say that the breakfast variety needs to change daily rather than having the same food over and over. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who’s looking for a real holiday luxurious getaway!!

    Very nice resort”
    We did enjoy our time at Pimalai very much. The resort is nice and the staff super friendly. Some points to be aware of however: - we are travelling without kids and if you like that, then being overrun in the pool with screaming, playing kids may not be what you want - we had some not so fresh oysters at their seafood restaurant - the way it is built on the side of a hill means you need to take their shuttle van to go up and down Otherwise very nice, great views, starts already with a great boat ride directly to the resort etc.
