Been there for one week at the end of September 2018. While it’s most of the time easier to say what’s not good than what’s good, I cannot find any bad things... Really close to perfection there.

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”
+: 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, 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!

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.

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

Our little piece of heaven!”
We stayed in the pimalai for 4 nights on our honeymoon. This is by far one of the best if not the best hotel resort we have stayed in on our travels. The place is perfect and the staff make sure your every need is met. Everything is thought of and catered for making your stay the most relaxing and enjoyable you will ever find. The food was also as amazing, with some fine local dishes and also a few from further a field (European). All taste are covered. Just when you think things can’t get any better, you head down to the beach and the amazing service continues. There are also a few free activities to take part in, my wife and I went Canoeing. Koh Lanta as an island is an amazing wonder of beauty. With incredible beaches and beautiful little villages. We cannot recommend the pimalai enough and want to say a huge thank you to the resort and staff for making our trip so memorable.

Stunning villa with a view at an amazing resort ”
From the private car pick up to their private speedboat to the resort, we knew this would be something special. The check in process flet like going to a spa. We were driven to our room to discover a two villa, infinity pool complex that was breath taken over looking the ocean. Staff was friendly is an understatement. These guys went above and beyond. Food was some of the best I’ve had at resorts in Thailand. One of the most memorable experiences from our trip. Thank you Pimalai.

Peaceful retreat ”
We stayed for 7 nights, and it was such a relaxing wonderful holiday thanks to the amazing staff at Pimalai. They really know what hospitality is all about. They all had great smile on their face and greet you in such a lovely manner - this alone made a huge impact on our day. Facility is very clean and nicely designed. Not tacky like many resorts tend to be. We took many design inspiration for our house + garden. Great infinity pool with view, and the service there is really great. Spa, although on a pricey side is very nice as well. You do get what you paid for. Only negative feedback we have is the food. Breakfast is great, but other than that food seems to be very average or below average. Seven Sea, which is their higher end restaurant, has an amazing sun set view, but the food there is very confusing. We were not happy with anything we were served for our dinner. It is a shame because everything else there is top notch!! We would recommend Pimalai to anyone.

Outstanding Service”
I, along with 2 friends, took a few days of relaxation after a hectic convention in Bangkok. It was the perfect choice! The staff couldn't be more accommodating. The food was outstanding and the resort itself was wonderful. The beach was absolutely stunning. Went on a snorkel excursion one day and enjoyed the excursion. I wish I had chosen to dive as they have quite the knowledgeable staff. I heard from others that a whale shark was spotted 2 days in a row! The only suggestion I have is to include the yoga class as part of the amenities. Everything else, with the exception of the spa services was included. As a guest, you expect to pay for massage etc. I would definitely return as a guest and would highly recommend this resort.

Paradise on earth :) (long description) ”
We had a fantastic villa quite far up in the hillside, with a stunning picture perfect view over the ocean hillside and jungle. The resort itself was a high end, 5 star resort, with its own boat jetty and boat transfer. The staff is as friendly and serviceminded as can be, and the place is stunning. There are 2 sections of the resort. The upper part houses the general reception, as well as the main restaurant and a second restaurant/cafe. There is also a great infinitypool here. Here is where the brakfast is held, and while the buffet is not huge, its still alot of very good food and beverages. There is a place to order warm, made to order dishes. The lower part has the beach, a great infinity pool, 2 restaurants, and bars. There is a free activity club, with a few options. Its a quite large area with steep hills, but they have small cars taking you arround if you dont fancy a walk. Fit for relaxation in paradise :)

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
