Great place to chill out and relaxPosted Mar 12, 2014
Pros: The location, it is a big resort but did not feel big or crowded .... it is one of the best resorts that we have stayed in across Asia
Cons: Not a lot to be honest, the airport transfers are expensive at 3,800 thai baht per person round trip
Location: There is nothing to do near by, so this is a resort you go to to chill out, enjoy the beach and do basic water sports in the bay
The Pimalai is an amazing resort set in a stunning location. It is beautifully laid out blending in with the natural surrounds. The beach is very clean and quiet and there are two amazing pools with spectacular views of the beach and the sunset. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts and food at the resort are first class. The WiFi coverage across the resort is amazing, with it working well in the rooms and by the two pools! If you want a place to getaway and relax then this resort is for you. If you want a resort with easy access to night life, shopping and a choice in good restaurants then I would recommend that you look elsewhere. Aside from the resort there is very little infrastructure in close proximity. The only other downside is the 2 hours it takes to get from Krabi Airport to the resort.

Nice hotel right on beachPosted Dec 24, 2013
Pros: Hotel is right on beach and provides equipment for water sports free of charge. Pimalai Spa is great but take advantage of their specials.
Cons: Need to update the bathroom.
Location: Several restaurants and bars along the beach. Also near a small town that have more restaurants, shops, convenient stores and pharmacies.
Beautiful hotel that is right on beach and has 2 infinity pools. Hotel rooms are spacious and each has its own terrace. Also located near a small town with several restaurants and bars.

Miss it alreadyPosted Nov 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Spent 10 nights as part of honeymoon. Booked deluxe room but got upgraded to Pavillion villa suite which was stunning. Everything about the Pimalai was top notch as far as we were concerned. Great service, lovely staff, beautiful pools, lovely beach, stunning setting, delicious breakfasts, the place never felt busy even though it apparently was almost full. A proper 5 star experience. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. Only thing I would say is that the restaurants at the resort are very pricey.

BreathtakingPosted Nov 7, 2013
Pimalai resort is truly a 5 star resort. If you visit Koh Lanta, you must stay at Pimalaia. Its the nicest resort on the island by far. Splurge and get the Pool Villas, well worth it. The staff is awesome, they memorize your name, they go above and beyond. We went Elephant trekking thru the jungle, kayaking, island hopping.. Theres just so much to see and do. The hotel grounds are remarkable, we were in awe everyday.

Amazing!Posted Oct 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Pimalai is a hotel experience like no other. The service team was extremely helpful with the coordination of logistics as we requested a pick up at the Koh Lanta ferry dock and at the back end of our stay, we requested transportation to Aonang. Along the way, the service team communicated everything clearly and made us feel very welcome. The resort itself is quiet, extremely well maintained, and gorgeous. The beach is a quiet and beautiful and you can do any activity you want! I absolutely recommend this resort for a couples vacation! It's a beautiful place to relax and rejuvenate.

Perfect place to spend relaxing holidayPosted Oct 22, 2013
Fantastic private beach and beautiful sunset, great architecture with the hotel hidden in the nature and not the other way around, great service and smiling staff ... Everything was just great. You can do many things just in the resort (kayaking, surf, spa, etc ...) or on the island with the hotel taking care of everything for you.
