We stayed at Pimalai Resort and Spa, an experience that truly took our breath away. We splurged and stayed in a Pool Villa Suite. The suite was fully self contained and we also had our own private pool. Our room overlooked the beautiful Andaman Sea The customer service was exceptional. The onsite restaurants catered to a variety of tastes. I... More

Pimalai is a fantastic resort. I had initially booked the laguna but once I saw how deserted long beach was we decided to cancel our booking and relocate to katiang bay. Very glad we did this. The resort was beautiful and the pools and beach were great. The service was amazing, every stuff member we came across was very friendly... More

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... More

There is absolutely nothing that I could thing of that needs improvement. We stayed in a 3 br pool villa which was perfect by all means. All praise goes to the staff of the Pimalai. Anything we ever wanted was taken care of. Thank you, everyone at Pimalai, for making this a great holiday for everyone in the family.

Pimalai was arranged for us by our travel planners from andaman adventures, who came up with a great price for our stay and got us what must be the best-situated pool villa in the resort - highest point up the hill giving dreamlike ocean sunrises and complete privacy. I bet thats worth mentioning too :) We learned that this resort... More

Staying in room 228,brilliant view of sea, sitting on balcony among the trees and wildlife. Staff always helpful especially the breakfast staff. Room cleaning excellent. Food very high quality but a shame restaurants add on 17 percent to your bill. The surrounding gardens are stunning and very well cared for. Transfer from Krabi by speedboat a brilliant start to our... More

We spent 2 weeks at Pimalai for our honeymoon. It is truly paradise- the setting is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in a standard room for the first week and were upgraded for the second week. Service is excellent- we were greeted at the airport with cool towels and ice cold water, and from that moment on everything was taken care... More

What a wonderful resort. We stayed in a ground floor room. Th upper swimming pool is fantastic. The food is great. They have a Thai food buffet once a week at Spice N Rice restaurant. It was so good that the family spent 2.5 hours eating and listening to local music. Try all the Thai salads, then move your way... More
