Travelled with 4 families, the beautiful resort, excellent rooms, excellent facilities, amazing spa, the wonderful beach and the beach bar and restaurant. The resort is child friendly, we had forgotten our baby's bottle steriliser (yes i know, how could we!), and the hotel provided us one. Three kids in our group and they all had a blast. It was an...

Thank you NadavST - great review . and yes we are set within the natural tropical forrest; and surely we have a few wildlife animals and insect; by all means we are alway here when asked to remove a bug, a small lizard when one gets into an accommodation.

I cannot say enough good things about this resort. We were treated like royalty and so spoiled! We had done our own transportation on the way in from Railay beach via ferry. That was a mistake. The transportation that pimalai provided us back to the airport was infinitely better and seamless. I highly recommend taking them up on that. We...

My husband and I have just returned from 3 nights here as part of a 2 week holiday in Thailand. We couldn't recommend this resort enough - it is absolutely stunning, has fantastic buffet breakfasts and the service was the best we experienced in Thailand. Our room was one of two that had just been refurbished which made it extra...

This resort is really the most beautiful I have ever been to and everything was purely fantastic! The breakfast and the western restaurant was super good. The service was perfect and it was amazing to have three choices between outside areas where to take a sun bath. I loved the private beach for the mornings and the upper pool in...

Pimalai is heaven. It's absolutely beautiful and serene, and never crowded. The grounds are immaculate, and the villas stunning. We had a beach villa where we shared a private pool with 3 other villas, and were on the beach. I can tell you, this is the way to go. The happy hour at the beach bar during sunset is also...

A decent spa in the middle of the rainforest, watching sunset while swiming in the infinity pool, exploring the nearby village for local flavors in the evening within walking distance, starry starry night with buy one get one free Mai Thai, complimentary airport transportation... We had it all. The service could be better, esp. the lobby to lobby shuttle service....
