We visited the Pimalai Resort and Spa in March this year and had an incredible time. From start to finish every aspect of the trip was wonderful. The speed boat journey and arrival at Pimalai makes an exciting fun start. Once at the resort we were instantly brought to our accommodation by the lovely and charmingly named Beatle (her dad...

Having stayed at four 5 star hotels in Thailand on our trip the Pimalai was by far the beat all rounder. Set on an idyllic beach remote and vast yet still managed to maintain an atmosphere in the hotel. It was a perfect mix of stillness and the feeling of been peaceful yet the hotel provided great restaurants and various... More

Sawasdee Sophie P from Leeds ; thank you for your very nice review; The name “Pimalai’ is a derivation of the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit and translates, appropriately, as “A little patch of Heaven”; this is a reflection of the stunning natural beauty and tranquility that are found both within the resort and also in its surroundings. So i... More

We have just returned from 12 wonderful nights at Pimalai. This was our third visit and once again we had a fabulous time there. While it is a bit of a journey from Canada, it is well worth the trip. Other locations that North Americans typically go to in the Caribbean, Mexico or Hawaii just don't compare. We highly recommend... More

We just arrived back from our trip to Thailand. Our stay at Pimalai was the highlight!! Beautiful! Everything was wonderful. The service was personal and excellent. The rooms are very nice, roomy, clean and quiet. The view was really lovely from the balcony. The grounds are beautiful with many nice touches and lots of flowers. While walking around, there was...

This was the best place we stayed at on our trip round the region with Andaman Sky, who got us one of the best rooms at the resort at a significantly lower price than we could have booked elsewhere. We also visited 2 other destinations on our tour, but we enjoyed Lanta the best, particularly as Pimalai is so out... More

We stayed for a week at this lovely hotel .The rooms were very good and breakfasts were superb. We had two wonderful massages in the spa best I have ever had.

Having just spent a week at the Pimalai Resort and Spa I would highly recommend going. We genuinely like more boutique hotels and although the resort was large it did have a boutique feel.

Beautiful hotel, room and grounds, wonderful staff and great food. Loved the individual character of this resort. I am glad the rooms were not a carbon copy of every other 'international' hotel one stays at. The showers had hot water whenever needed and the bed was very comfortable. Everything was scrupulously clean. The downside? The steps. But in reality as... More
