Our holiday at Pimalai resort and spa was fantastic. We were there on 22-26Aug during the low season and we stayed at the one-bedroom pool villa. Transportation We were met at the airport by the resort representative who promptly brought us to a waiting van. He explained to us the route that will be taken and the estimated time taken... More

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

Love going 'home' here. You can't imagine the trip you are in for. It has been a few years since I was last here but I'm sure it is still absolutely amazing as always :) :) I will be back one day when I have the money (and all my vaccinations) Love crawling on the beach here in the night.

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
