2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

An outstanding resort. From the gardens, to the facilities, from the large pool on the hill to the small pool on the beach this resort was truly outstanding. Also, it was super quiet. No dogs, no roosters, no traffic noise. And a great stretch of beachfront. Every detail was attended to, the service was great, the food was fantastic, the views were absolutely stunning. Personalized service from the GM, right on down to the buggy boys. Everything was immaculate and you could tell that the management has a lot of pride in this resort, as they keep it in tip-top shape. We will be coming back and I highly recommend this resort for vacation. It was a very special four days that we spent there.

HOTEL EXPERIENCE AND SERVICE: Breathtaking property its a splurge that is worth it! The Spa is GORGEOUS every detail is maintained well - that did not slack on the landscaping at all! The staff makes you feel at ease and everything is right at your finger tips! This is a great sign of integrity in service that is upheld despite the hardships from the pandemic. ROOM AND AMENITIES: Very comfortable and nicely renovated with up to date features. The bath room is very comfortably laid out and bath amenities were great! The bed sheets were crisp and clean. I couldn’t have asked for more. NOTABLE MENTIONS: There’s no hotel quite like Pimalai on Lanta Island the breath taking sunset views from the big tree pool and dining room. The private beach is also super epic, with plenty of activities. Dining room staff ‘YING’ took great care of me and she paid attention to all my dietary needs and was very accommodating. HOW I DID IT: Focus on the room, I am a very active traveler so I need a nice bed to sleep. Check for SPA promotions, I dont usually use hotel SPAs because I find them generally overpriced but Pimalai Spa is worth the experience and quality. I don’t ever fail to catch the sunset or a morning swim in the sea!

We stayed at the hotel for a week to escape Bangkok, we were basically the only guests for 90% of our stay and had the entire place to ourselves! The hotel, grounds and facilities were kept in immaculate condition and the staff were fantastic!

Room is pretty clean and has nice views. Ocean view is pretty nice because of the sunset and sunrise. Bathroom is spacious and beautiful. Staffs are super friendly and helpful. The lady who cleaned our room is always complimenting us which is super cute. The hotel is close to everything. We will definitely stay in this hotel again and hopefully the same room. 11/10 for Pimalai Resort and Spa in Koh Lanta.
