Beautiful Honeymoon Getaway

Posted Jul 27, 2015
Deluxe Sea View room was amazing, staff are incredibly capable and helpful, the facilities are excellent, perfect for a couple on a getaway. The pool and beach are so accessible and the setting is stunning. There is kayaking and paddleboarding, and free scheduled activities daily. The food is fantastic, a variety of thai, seafood, italian, western and snack food. We were very fortunate with the weather, but there are movie sessions and room service for even the rainiest days. We loved our stay!

Tolle Anlage an einem Traumstrand

Posted Jul 18, 2015
Pros: die tolle Lage und das alles da ist, was man für einen gelungenen Urlaub braucht
Cons: da müsste ich jetzt ein Haar in der Suppe suchen :-)
Location: in einer schönen Bucht direkt am Strand, die Anlage befindet sich an einem relativ steilen Hang
Ich bin mit meinen Kindern, 2 und 6 Jahre, im Resort gewesen. Wir hatten ein Deluxe-Zimmer mit Meerblick. Vor fünf Jahren war ich zum ersten Mal im Pimalai und von dieser Anlage begeistert. Alles ist sehr weitläufig, ursprünglich und ruhig, das Personal sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Der Strand ist feinsandig, ideal zum spielen für Kinder. Einige hundert Meter am Strand entlang trifft man auf kleine Restaurants, Geschäfte usw. Da es im Hotel mehrere Restaurants gibt (eines davon direkt am Strand), haben wir immer dort gegessen, ohne das Eintönigkeit aufgekommen wäre. Was schön für Eltern mit kleineren Kindern ist, dass es auch eine Kinderbetreuung gibt.

Pimalai Paradise!

Posted Jul 17, 2015
Pros: The staff, customer service, friendliness, and the resort design integrates with its surrounding nature beautifully. One of the best places i've been
Cons: Some of the FF&E could be updated, it's a bit dated but really not a big deal, we loved our stay!
Location: Location is remote, but near a convenience store and other hotels/restaurants to diversify your dining & tourism options.
Stayed there for our honeymoon for a week. Despite the rainy weather during monsoon season, our stay at Pimalai more than made up for it. It is a stunning eco-resort with exceptional staff service. Everyone is very professional and friendly, and there is someone at your service ready to help whenever needed, without ever being pushy. Our room was fantastic, although on the third day we did discover a gecko and a little cockroach, and the concierge immediately upgraded us to a really nice suite. We felt very taken care of and pampered at the resort. Two infiniti pools, amazing dining options, sensational spa, and the resort is huge and integrated perfectly into the surrounding rainforest & mountain. The beach is ok, we went during monsoon season so the water was choppy and a muddier color, but I suspect during peak season it's much smoother and clear. The resort is remote - there are other options in the "new town" which is not that nice, just more things to do, but it's location away from it all is why we chose Koh Lanta as a destination, and Pimalai's individual bungalows ensured our experience was very unique and isolated from other guests when needed. Had such an Excellent stay and want to thank all the Pimalai staff!

Amazing, you will not want to leave

Posted Jun 27, 2015
We had a great time at Pimalai everything was fantastic from the moment we were collected at the airport to when we were dropped off at our next place on our trip. The beach is great this time of year with waves for bodyboarding ( body boards are provided). There are daily activities and on one of the days we did a Thai boxing class which was great fun albeit a bit sweaty! I have no words to describe the breakfast, my expectations of breakfast have at least tripled. On top of everything else what really makes this place great is the staff they are all so friendly and helpful and sometimes seem to know what you want just before you do even! Stay here and have a fantastic holiday!

Everything you could want in an island escape

Posted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: Very friendly staff and excellent amenities. We visited in the low season and were pleasantly surprised how quiet the resort was.
Cons: The resort prices were reasonable, but not after the 17% tax was included on all services! We ended up eating at other restaurants nearby.
Location: Great location! Due to the meal prices post tax, we ate at several restaurants nearby. Can definitely recommend Why Not Bar and Alama.
We absolutely loved our stay at Pimalai and can't wait to return. The resort has everything you could want and more! The buffet breakfast was incredible and the staff were so friendly! The rooms are nicely appointed, and the turn down service with biscuits every night was very nice. The shuttle carts to and from the restaurant were great, and made getting across the resort much easier, although we did enjoy the walk up in the mornings to the gym as a great warm-up. The pools are a nice temperature, as we found the bay a little too warm. Just a really great place to relax and unwind!

Bel hôtel, mais manque d'activités.

Posted Jun 14, 2015
Pros: La piscine dans la villa. Le cadre "Jungle". Le SPA et le bar de la plage
Cons: Plus d'activités. Des systèmes anti-moustiques plus efficaces.
Location: Au milieu de la jungle. A 1/2 heure à pieds d'un petit village. Attention au réveil matinal par le minaret.
Belle villa avec grande piscine. Mais besoin d'un rafraichissement. Petit déjeuné buffet pas assez varié. Deçu de ne pas pouvoir faire certaines activités (Expédition en bateau, volley sur la plage...)

By far best hotel in Thailand

Posted May 25, 2015
Pros: Everything from the staff, the room to hotel grounds and food.m 5 star all around.
Cons: Nothing, it is a perfect place to stay.
Location: It's private but has lots to do. We rode mopeds to the national park right by property and saw lots of monkeys. Also snorkeling is best in the world
Incredible hotel. Rooms are large, clean, grounds are beautiful and private, food is delicious and the staff treats you like royalty. From the moment they pick you up at the pier it is constant pampering and luxury. The spa was wonderful in the juggle setting with private huts for your selected treatment, the pools are cool and refreshing and the staff is always there with cool water and towels to make you comfortable at all times. We loved it so much we booked an extra night. There isn't one thing we could complain about. Top notch, hands down, best hotel for our entire month long stay in Thailand. The beach is also breath taking, private and clean.
