My husband I got married in krabi, Thailand and we chose Pimalai as our Honeymoon destination. We booked through Andaman Sky where we got the best deal and great service. We where not disappointed! Its a long haul from Ao Nang town by Ferry and then a further 40 min drive by taxi from the port to the hotel. If I had to book again, I would book the speed boat through Pimalai. Its worth it. Great welcome from very friendly staff with welcome drinks and a free room upgrade. Our room was beautiful. It was tastfully decorated "Thai" style with a gorgeous bathroom and outdoor shower and direct beach access. Great honeymoon deocrations, free champagne (thank you!) and a gorgeous cake! It was love at first sight! The resort is massive and you will need to catch on the tuk tuks to get around. They are fun though and they also advertise their specials inside everyday. We booked a 2 hour couples massage at the spa and this was great, albeit a little expensive. We also hired motor bikes and explored the whole of Ko Lanta (This takes a day max!) and we found a gorgeous waterfall and cave to explore about 5 minutes from the hotel. The pool at the seven seas is out of this world! Lizzards are everywhere! Very cool to see. Cocktails and food at the pool was extremely over priced compared to the local areas and tasted exactly the same, but when on honeymoon you dont mind a little splurge. Sunsets where amazing! We had dinner at the seven seas for my birthday and although the food and service was great, I have to admit that it was insanely over priced for the amount of food one received and we did feel cheated. Especially because it was my birthday and the restruant manager didnt even do anything special for us. There was a devine cake in our fridge when we got back to our room though that made me smile :) Breakfasts at the seven seas was INCREDIBLE! Food = amazing. Staff = a little slow, although very helpful, we had to ask for coffee 3 times every morning before we actually got it. The view and food makes up for it though. We loved the morning newsletters - great touch! Frank (The manager) came past and chatted for a while. He was very pleasant and a great host. Other food places nearby where the WHY NOT bar (great fun!) and the SAME SAME (Really good thai food but service was lacking) To sum up our trip = Its a quiet paradise. We would come back but we will have to save up A LOT of money again. Thank you for having us.
