Every aspect of the experience was well thought out - from the pick up at Krabi airport to the ride to the port to the boat ride to the resort....

This resort is very special indeed, it's a secluded paradise facing the Andaman sea on Koh Lanta Island. It's nestled in a tropical forest. Offering unrivalled ocean views and magical sunsets. The beach is the most beautiful I have ever seen. The spacious and elegant guest rooms and villas designed in a contemporary Thai style with polished wooden floors, bamboo...

Dear madamswanlondon Thank you for the great review; indeed we had a bit more French clients than usual; probably running away from the dreadful political time back home!. Other wise the nationality mix is very good almost all year around. Sunny regards from all @ Pimalai.

The Resort itself is in a beautiful location - very private; the rooms are also private without looking onto other guests. However, it seems that it is a bit rainy and because it's so isolated, there's nothing to do when that happens. While the service is impeccable, the resort gouges you on food,beverage costs and excursions. If you were closer...

Dear Marlenetoronto At our resort we appreciate those of our guests who have taken the time to post their experiences and opinions on Trip Advisor. It is only through this feedback that we can (quoting Robert Burns) “see ourselves as others see us” and learn of what we do right and what requires improvement. By far the majority of the...
