Stayed here last December but only just got round to the review.
We had a really relaxed and chilled out 2 weeks at the Pimalai.
Hotel was loverly, great rooms and grounds, though beware of the steep paths and stairs if you have mobility issues.... a good work out. Staff generally very pleasant and helpful. Food was pretty good but not as high a quality as I would have expected from a hotel that pitches itself at this level.
As mentioned by many others on this site, the hotel is a tad on the expensive side, both to stay at and for drinks and anything extra. Another thing to watch out for is at checkout time. Make sure you pay in local currency if using a credit card as the exchange rate used by the hotel to British pounds is very poor. I explicitly asked to pay in local currency but the credit card was charged in £.....this cost me over £100 extra.
