We stayed there in June in a Pavilion Suite on the beach and it was simply amazing. We got lucky and except for the very first day, we only had sunny days. It was our second stay, the first one being in November 2011. Of course, June being the green season, the atmosphere was a bit different as it was... More

After lots of planning we finally arrived at Pimalai resort and could not have been happier. The surrounds are beautiful, the grounds immaculate, the rooms clean. Our view is to die for. The swimming pools are just perfect - clean, well maintained. Staff are smiling and attentively friendly at all times. The General Manager is a master at public relations.... More

Pimalai is one of the best resorts my wife and i have travelled to, especially in South East Asia. once you get there (its a 90 min drive from the airport or a 30 min speed boat ride away), you get lost in the natural surroundings, the lush greenery, the lovely private beach, and the superb accomodation available. we stayed...

From the moment the smiling young man in the smart Pimalai Resort and Spa uniform met us at Krabi Airport we had a good feeling about our short resort break. The near new Toyota transporter was roomy and immaculately clean, and the chilled water and comfortable leather seats made the 45 minute journey to the wharf seem much shorter. We... More

The hotel is a perfect place to stay in the tropical island. The hotel staff are very helpful. The food is also in good quality and service. The hotel can arrange pick-up at the airport. Very good spa package for honeymoon couple.

My husband and I visited the Pimalai as our final destination on our honeymoon and wow were we impressed! It was recommended by my travel agent who's friend had recently stayed there and raved about it. When we arrived there had been a little mix up with our booking room choice (this was not the fault of Pimalai), after getting... More

Nothing about this place can be faulted by anybody, except maybe if you're an arabian princess. The location is stunning, the service as friendly as we could want, yummy food and wine (the wine was a bit pricey). Breakfasts are sublime, best hotel breakfast I’ve ever eaten and I’ve stayed at dozens of 5* resorts in previous years. The spa... More

My husband and I visited Pimalai at the end of May and stayed 4 nights. We picked this resort because it was less "touristy". Transportation: It takes about 2 hours to the resort from the airport but you won't dread it as it's a wonderful experience. Our favorite part was the speedboat across the island - you'll feel like you... More
