Pimalai Resort and Spa

"Koh Lanta’s best kept secret."

The Pimalai Resort and Spa sits in a beautiful location on the southwestern edge of Koh Lanta. Nestled in a lush rainforest above a long, wide beach, the resort decisively commands centre stage for anyone romantically inclined. The location just north of the Equator needs no striking architectural statements to detract from the natural appeal of the gardens, rainforest, and beach. It is enough that the spacious villas radiate contemporary warmth and space with floor-to-ceiling windows, wraparound balconies, and private pools.

Location:Approximately a 2-hour drive from Krabi Airport. The resort provides a complimentary round trip airport transfer.
Perfect for:Privacy and seclusion.
Why we love it:Quiet luxury, direct beach access, and complimentary spa classes.

Food & Drink

Villas, both bay view and beachfront, are light, airy havens to which guests will be dawn in the languid daylight hours. In the morning, guests can hit the beach or the central infinity pool to shake off their dreams with a swim, a beach walk, or snorkelling. Then they can tuck into a joyous breakfast. Idle away the day in their own lounge-worthy space where the nearest thing to effort might be lifting the cradle of the telephone to summon room service.

Guests might find the energy to breeze along to the spa to luxuriate in the perfect clutch of open-air salas, all interconnected by waterfalls, ponds, and riotous tropical gardens.

At cocktail hour, there are divine choices to be made. Wherever guests decide to celebrate the end of languorous day, the chic bar and dining venues make website images look amateur. Couple all of this with a manager and staff who know how to sustain the romantic in all of us and the result is a resort with latitude!
