Welcome to Pimalai Resort & Spa, Koh Lanta

Peace, Serenity, Solitude. These are the words that come to mind for Pimalai. Add to that luxury, elegance, natural surroundings and genuine friendly service.

Be it for a honeymoon, a diving experience, a break from it all or even for a business meeting in Krabi then Pimalai, nestled in a lush tropical forest, is the Andaman destination to set your sights on. This exclusive beach resort combines all the right ingredients - subtle five star comforts, natural beauty and lots of space. Located well distant from crowded beaches and resorts, the only sound is that of the waves sliding in and out and slowly breaking onto the sandy shore.

Pimalai Resort & Spa Overview

Built within the rainforest as it meets the silver ocean strand, you would hardly know Pimalai was there. The luxury beach resort occupies 100 acres of tropical vegetation with direct access to a 900 meters stretch of pristine sandy beach and offers 121 accommodation units - Deluxe, Bayfront Deluxe, Pavillion Suite, Beach Villa and Pool Villa - all very elegantly appointed.

From the mainland, it takes about 1 hour by the resort boat to reach Koh Lanta and Pimalai but it is worth bearing this hardstrip in order to find such a unique lost paradise in tourist Thailand...

Visit once and you will return again and again...
