Pimalai is a sneakily luxurious place... not over the top, not in-your-face, but really, really nice. The spa is one of the most lovely I have ever seen in Asia, and the facial I had was superb, the Thai massage another of our party had was just as good. The two pools have fantastic views, the beach is well managed with lots of fun equipment -- boogie boards, catamarans, kayaks etc and plenty of lounge chairs. The gym is really incredible for a resort, huge and wonderfully equipped, and there are 2 tennis courts. The fancy European restaurant was a bit too fancy and stiff for us, the others were very good. We stayed in the lower half, in my opinion vastly preferable to staying up on the mountain. The golf carts that take you up to the higher restaurants are fun, it is less fun to go in a black SUV, I wish they didn't use them, it spoils the atmosphere. If you are looking for an exotic very Thai experience this is not it... there is some of that feeling but not a lot, except perhaps in the spa.
