Had amazing sunset cocktails at they recently opened beach bar and...

We only stayed for 1 night, but it was 100% worth it. When staying in the lower level, make sure to request a 2nd-floor room to ensure sea views. We found the food at the nearby Drunken Sailor much tastier (and 1/3 the cost) of the Rice N Spice on-site restaurant. Both pools were stunning and we highly recommend using...

Let me get the bad out of the way first, and then focus on the good... VERY BAD: We chose to spend the money on Pimalai instead of the cheaper "beach hut hotels" on the island for one reason...to avoid the bugs. As avid travelers, we understand that in tropical destinations, one can expect bugs everywhere. However, I woke up...

Pimalai in Koh Lanta is a resort that lives up to the hype. My husband and I stayed for 3 nights during our honeymoon. The property is stunning, masterfully built into the hillside overlooking a picture perfect beach. Unlike many other resorts in Thailand, the beach is private to the few hotels and low key beach bars. The staff is...

We stayed 6 nights is this wonderful resort. The experience is magical from the very moment you arrive in the resorts bay on the private jetty of the hotel. The service is exceptional by every single member of the staff. We cannot think of a better and more relaxing holiday: several dining options, diving, activities, beautiful swimming pools... we cannot...

Stayed at Pimalai for just 2 nights as a short break off work. That was a great decision. Beautifully appointed beach villa with view to die for, and soft sound of the waves to relax you. Excellent dinner at the seafood restaurant. Above all the staff we interacted with was extremely helpful and polite, from the gardener to the management.

This has to go down as the best hotel we've ever stayed in, absolutely beautiful setting and surroundings. Staff are incredibly helpful and take time out for you all the time. Breakfast was stunning each morning and the pools and beach are superb. I cannot recommend this hotel enough if you're considering staying in Thailand, I really hope we can...

Absolutely wonderful resort - it's like paradise. Everything about the place is beautiful. It's expensive but well worth it. The staff are all very polite and all the restaurants are good, particularly the one at the top of the hotel. Have been back 3 times!

From the gorgeous views, beautiful resort, and amazing staff this is one of the best resorts we have ever been to. If you are ever thinking of visiting Ko Lanta this is the place to stay. The staff are attentive, the resort is perfectly maintained and their amenities are top notch.

Amazing hotel on a wonderful island. I could write a long essay about the hotel but I will focus on some items. The beach is awesome and roughly for 70% (more or less) exclusive to the hotel. When you go two beaches further to the South (Bamboo Beach) you see the direct difference between a beach (Bakantiang Beach, the one...
