My husband and I just spent a wonderful two weeks at this resort. We were here also in January 2008 and decided to return as we loved the facility and southern area of Koh Lanta so much
We had a gorgeous room and enjoyed (once again) the two lovely pools,cristal clear beach with white sands and few touristsm spa, restaurants, dive facilites and even yoga this year!
What to expect:::
-Lovely rooms, nice refreshing soaps and products ensuite
-Smiles and a willingness to help from each member of their staff from the gardeners to front desk staff
-Management keenly scoping the resort to greet guests and make sure they are confortable and hqppy...if you have any concerns you should just flag them down and they will do their absolute best to accomodate you.
The absolute best::
-Dive facility, mangement and attention to detail as it pertains to safety and equipment on board
-The most beautiful spa location I have ever been to (ps you are almost sure to see monkeys in the trees starting from 5 pm)!
What you should know:
-Its actually two facilities and a great opportunity to walk trhrough well sculpted lush tropical gardens
-Not all the staff speaks perfect english but they will do their absolute best to assist you and if you have an issue, just see a manager...this was not a problem for us (as apparently other Tripadvisor guests have pointed out) but perceived by my husband and I as part of leaving our french culture and experiencing this lovely with local flavor. I can almost guarantee that each and every employee will smile and greet you as you pass by I found this to be absolutely wonderful! Take the time to learn just a little Thai (ie hello, thank you, perhaps your room number) you will see how their faces light up :)!
Rightlfully a Small leading hotel which is how I originally found the Pimalai. This hotel offers luxury with wonderful views, nice smiles and all set in a tropical jungle...enjoy...
