Travel Thailand: Pimalai

Pimalai is centered around the idea that peace with nature leads to peace on the estate. As such, every detail from its location, to the construction of the resort facilities, was planned and executed with the goal of complementing, not competing with the original environment. Pimalai stay true to this belief so that they will always be able to offer guests natural comfort and solace from the hustle and bustle of life.

Fall asleep to the whispers of the waves and wake up each morning to nature’s calming breeze. Away from the traffic and vendors, the sun, sea, and sky is all yours. It’s the reason Pimalai is Koh Lanta’s best kept secret, one that’s just too tempting not to share.

With 100 acres of tropical vegetation, direct access to 900 meters of pristine sandy beach, Pimalai brings you the closest you will ever be to nature’s glorious splendor. Located away from other resorts and the hectic buzz of tourism on Koh Lanta, guests are free to relax and rejuvenate in their rooms and villas, right within the heart of nature.

From location to interior design, every aspect of the resort was hand-picked by the Pimalai’s owners and their business partners. They traveled to their favorite hotels in Bali in search of design inspiration that integrated exotic luxury with earthy appeal, incorporating the highlights of each location, and just a touch of Southern Thai elements, to the design of Pimalai.

Perched on the slope of a hill, above the bay and lush grounds, the owners trekked up in search of the best viewpoint for each location and facility, selecting unique spots and positions which would best contribute to the Pimalai experience.

With a wide array of well developed facilities, you’ll always be spoiled for choice. Experience Pimalai’s 35-meter long fresh water infinity swimming pool at the resort, equipped with Jacuzzi jets at the attached pavilion, perfect for a refreshing swim. Or try out the stunning in”inity pool at the pool villa’s estate. Located 50 meters above sea level, the pool offers guests a breathtaking 180-degree view of the bay below.

There are many dining options at Pimalai, with three restaurants specializing in different kinds of cuisines, as well as relaxing bars providing guests with breathtaking view of the bay. Guests are also free to keep healthy at our fitness center with high quality equipment, and tennis courts. Or perhaps choose indulgence with some of Pimalai Spa’s relaxing treatments. Many have also enjoyed unique diving experiences at our on-site Gold Palm PADI dive center (operating all year round) or embarked on island discovery cruises with privately run boats. Guests are also free to pick up some signature Thai souvenirs for their friends and family back home at the resort shop.

Enjoy a wide selection of books, newspapers DVDs and CDs at our Library & Internet Lounges, one located adjacent to the resort, and the other at the Pool Villa’s estate. Stay in touch with family and friends with free internet service at the Library Lounge or in the comfort of your own room. Pimalai is also equipped with a conference room which provides ease and convenience to business visitors.
