I've been meaning to write a review, but only just getting around to it (having recommended to several people already). Excellent service in a beautiful setting. The staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast delicious, and we were very impressed with the Seven Seas restaurant. We stayed in a deluxe room which was beautiful and immaculately clean.

As a recommendation from andaman adventuures, this was our second destination. Let's start with the hospitality. The hospitality of this resort was second to none. The staff are ever ready to help you with your every single need and always with a smile and it all felt very genuine too. The food in all their restaurants are fantastic and the... More

Wow, what a resort, top marks for Frank’s team at Pimalai for another great stay. We booked this as part of our second tour of the region with Andaman sky adventures, who again got us one of the best Deluxe rooms (there is a big difference between the best and the rest) at a nice price. This was our second... More

Easily one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff were so friendly and helpful, their customer service skills are outstanding. The food, rooms and activities are all great. The view takes your breath away and you soon find yourself never wanting to leave. The free airport transfer makes it accessible and is also an added bonus... More

Without doubt, Pimilai is an outstanding resort and one that I would absolutely return to for future holidays. Although quite a distance from Krabi, Pimalai staff meet you at the airport and whisk you away in air conditioned luxury transport to the resort. Our "budget" room was large, clean, modern and had a view of the ocean. Although we visited... More

An amazing hotel on a lovely island. The hotel grounds are fantastic like having a hotel in the middle of a tropical rainforest. The staff are discrete but excellent. The infinity pool has a view of the sunset that is so picturesque. The dive company on site operate to a high standard. The spa is beautiful with a waterfall running... More

This is a very exclusive resort like for the Vip!!! The personal could speak English so that was very helpful since in Thailand it is sometimes hard to find.

Spent three nights a few years back in this amazing resort on the beautiful koh lanta, which is much less commercial than other islands in Thailand like Phuket or Koh samui. It took some efforts to get there by car+boat trip (arranged by the resort) after I landed at Krabi airport. But the boat trip was stunning as you would... More

It would be unfair to compare Pimalai to any other hotel in Thailand, because it's truly one of a kind. Our 5 days included breakfasts overlooking the breathtaking Andaman, and long strolls off the pristine beach. To top it off, I proposed to my now-fiancée on our airy balcony, where the staff graciously set up with a unforgettable surprise, above... More
