I stayed for a week here, in one of the 3 bedroom homes with a private pool. We were with 2 other families with kids, and the kids loved it! The "house" itself was amazing, very beautiful, with views out to the indian ocean. Food was great, especially the green curry, cheapest on the menu but most authentic and really... More

Check in was efficient and the staff at reception were very friendly. We stayed in a sea view villa, which had all the mod cons one would... More

Family of 4 with teenagers, stayed at the Pimali for two weeks with a night in Bankok at either end. The trip from Bankok is long but if you plan to do it in daylight very enjoyable. The hotel is fantastic, the food was wonderful, the beach is quiet, one of the most relaxing holidays ever

We stayed at the Pimiai on the 4th leg of our 5 week Thai holiday. We are avid Thai travelers and love trying out new places to stay for the heck of it...for the location and just to enjoy. The Pimilai Resort came to us with all the bells and whistles of a first class resort. From the start, nothing... More

I stayed in this hotel in April 2007, my husband and I also got married there. We booked thru the hotel, and had to fax over credit info which is a bit of a hassle, when you can book most hotels online, but no matter. We thought the resort was absolutely beautiful and the staff couldn't have been nicer. The... More

My girlfriend and i stayed at the Pimalai for 10 nights in June. We loved the resort and did not want to leave at the end of our stay! We stayed in a superior room for 4 nights and upgraded to a bigger suite for the remaining nights. The resort was very quiet for almost all of our holiday. Ideal... More

From the time we arrived to the time we left , we loved this great resort. The room was very stylish, with great art, nice furnishings and a great outdoor shower. We arrived on a Tuesday and that evening they had a Thai buffet, which was well worth the B1200, highly recommend it. Our room was close to the beach,... More

We’ve stayed at Pimlai for a week in November 2006. We choose the hotel because of the PADI dive center, which turned to be the only great thing in this hotel (David and Gersine, you are the best!!!). The hotel property looked impressive from the boat and the gardens was very well kept, but….. We’ve took the simplest double room... More
