Pimalai Resort and Spa was a luxurious get away where we spent an enjoyable week. Probably 4-5 days would suffice as it is a quiet place and rather isolated. Some advise - there is a small shop which doesn't stock much so don't forget anything. This was being revamped whilst we were there so perhaps this has improved.
The accommodation was absolutely fabulous with it's own plunge pool, a separate lounge with mini kitchen, and two separate large bedrooms. The views were glorious looking down to the sea with a national park to the side. This did mean there were some naughty monkeys who visited which you need to be cautious about.
There were a number of restaurants to choose from and all were good. You can even do a cooking class as we did with the friendly chef's. There were a number of other activities on offer both in the resort and just outside. The spa was in a perfect setting and we visited this a number of times. There's a gym, tennis court, pools, and of course beach. The beach itself is average. So it's worth taking the boat out and do some snorkelling to see the marine life. Other guests went to an elephant sanctuary nearby and they seem to have enjoyed themselves.
The staff were fantastic and welcoming. They got the balance between discretion and friendliness just right and always looked happy as they went about their work. They were very helpful with my husband's dietary requirements.
All together highly recommendable.
