Pimalai, nestled in a lush tropical forest with direct access to 900 meters of pristine sandy beach, is the Andaman destination to set your sights on. The beach resort combines all the right ingredients - subtle five star comforts, natural beauty, far from the crowds, with no noise except the sound of the waves sliding in and out and slowly breaking onto the sand.

Probably the nicest resort I've stayed at anywhere in the world. Maybe I've stayed at fancier hotel properties in certain cities, but never a resort as nice as this one. Yes, it takes some time to get to, but it's worth it, especially if you can stay more than two nights. The service is excellent, the rooms are great, the resort grounds are absolutely gorgeous. The infinity pools are wonderful, the beach is pleasant. Anee, Ying, Kaew, Noy, Nam, and RZ get special shout outs for treating my family so well. My little girl adored some of the staff (and vice versa). We came in the middle of Tropical Storm Noul, so it rained two of the three full days there. Didn't matter. We still had a great time. Make sure you check out the monkeys at the beach at dusk (just keep your distance). Cannot recommend this resort more. Truly one of the top resorts anywhere.

I went to Pimalai for few days with a friend and we had the best time. The staff remembered our names right away and it gave the tone of the perfect service we received the entire time. The rooms are beautiful, gardens are perfectly well-maintained and the food selection was great. I highly recommend this destination in Kho Lanta.

The most insane hotel I’ve ever stayed. Everything is indeed flawless from the service, the breathtaking views, the food, and amenities. Hands down the best place to stay in Koh Lanta! They have several pools, a really nice beach with free paddle boarding, great food and golf carts to drive you around whenever you need. The staff will bring you freshly cut fruit to the pool and the beach - it’s delicious! We did a Muay Thai class that was a lot of fun and a great workout. The instructor was very friendly and worked with all different levels. Please stay here, you won’t regret it!

Vast villas dotting the hills down to the beach, preserving your privacy while offering you a fantastic view. Flawless service. Delicious food at the restaurants. And two glorious swimming pools to add to the villas' and the sea (great beach). You appreciate the private boat transfer during weekends, when the queue to access the ferry can last hours. GM very present, to add to the sense of welcome and responsibility.

Beautiful beach!! Excellent breakfast food, There are international menus and Asian for you to select. I recommend egg Benedict. For drink you can start your day with Latte coffee and after you finish your breakfast you can enjoy TWG tea.!! There are many selections. Love it In room Housekeeper will give you a lot of bottles of water and around 6:30pm they will come to ask if you allow them to turn down again. So lovely Recommend to you who really want to relax and stay close to the nature. Friendly staff and helpful.
