In allen Belangen beste Voraussetzungen für einen erholsamen und schönen UrlaubComment of V. Günter, Germany the 2015-09-02
"Great resort but could be better for the prices they charge."
If you are the kind of person who likes to go to a resort and stay there for your entire holiday, then Pimalai is your kind of place. There are several restaurants to choose from, the beach is quite nice (although difficult to swim sometimes due to the current) and there are two nice pool areas. My main issue with Pimalai was that not only are the rooms extremely pricey, so is everything else such as the Spa and any other excursions. I was staying there with my parents (would never be able to afford it otherwise) and the three of us paid less for the 3 of us at a different Spa than what Pimalai wanted for one person. The same thing goes for their boat trips. One of the other main issues I have with the resort is the lack of English speaking staff which lead to a lot of misunderstanding and confusion. I understand that I am in their country and do not expect people at restaurants and shops to always speak English but when it comes to a 5-star luxury resort, I do. I believe that a place like this should be able to invest in an English teacher for their staff. Another thing, which was quite disappointing, is how companies outside the hotel were treated. I booked a dive with Flip Flop divers and was meant to be picked up at 6:45am. The owner of the dive centre, Ady, was on time, however the guard made him wait in the parking and did not let him drive into the hotel. It was only when I told reception about this, that he was allowed to drive into the resort, making us slightly behind schedule. I believe that making someone wait for half an hour without a word is extremely unprofessional, especially if that is someone doing business with your guests. Overall, it was a very nice stay but a few things definitely need tweaking to make the hotel live up to its luxury 5-star name.
"Beautiful hotel on a beautiful island"
We stayed in one of the pool villas up on the hillside. The room was lovely and the views are fantastic. The service at the hotel was very good. We went on the boat trip to Ko Ha, which was excellent. We had been diving at the same location the previous day but the snorkelling was equally good. Only an hour from the hotel and even though it was busy when we arrived (boats from Phuket etc), after 20-30 minutes we were the only boat there and it was beautiful to see in that serenity. We visited the Spa at the hotel on a few occasions, the treatments were excellent (pimalai signature and Thai massage) We dined at all 3 restaurants, which were all good. The setting at the beach restaurant was probably our favourite. Ko Lanta is a beautiful island as it is still relatively unspoiled and quiet. I would certainly recommend visiting and this hotel is excellent.
"Perfect Christmas in Paradise"
Stayed in Pavilion Suite right on the beach. Perfect for family with children staying in one room and parents having our own space. Everything about Pimalai was magical. The staff were so helpful, the food was magnificent and there were endless activities on site. We took 2 trips from Pimalai: - snorkelling on Christmas Day. Again fantastic w great guides hotel. - elephant riding. Unique brilliant experience. Would give Pimalai 100% recommendation.
"Honeymoon paradise "
We stayed in one of the pool villas as part of our Honeymoon, without a doubt the most amazing place we have ever stayed! Incredible villa, stunning views, gorgeous private beach. We are in Spice and Rice a couple of times, it is amazing Thai food - probably the best we ate in our 3 weeks travelling around Thailand. The one negative I would have...we had to leave!
We spent a week over New Year at the Pimalai. The resort is really very pretty, with rooms and villas set in lovely tropical gardens. It it a resort of two halves - literally, as it is split by a local public road . We were able to get around easily using the resort's buggy service, for which we never had a wait. Our rooms overlooking the garden (with a glimpse of the sea) were in excellent condition, totally clean, not in any way tired or faded and not lacking in space. There was a balcony with two chairs, plenty of storage and hanging space and the bathroom had a separate shower and toilet. Dining: breakfast in the Rice 'n Spice (lower) restaurant was a very good, fairly typical resort buffet. We didn't eat at the Seven Seas but did spend a happy hour (or two) there, where the sunset views are every bit as spectacular as the photos suggest and the cocktails are delicious. We enjoyed dinner a couple of times at the Rak Ralay on the beach - very casual, with a tasty cafe-style menu. The Pimalai team made a great effort for the New Year event at the beach restaurant, with a big buffet and in particular, fabulously fresh seafood. Mainly we ate outside the resort just for variety. The restaurants at Pimalai are indeed expensive compared to local restaurants, but it's hardly a reasonable or fair comparison. Price-wise we found the Rak Ralay comparable to similar establishments in the UK. What bumps up the bill are the drinks prices, but that's pretty typical of 5-star hotels too. We took one of the resort's boat trips to Koh Rok, where the beaches were pristine, the snorkelling good and the picnic a delicious BBQ cooked on the boat while we splashed about. A great trip and a bit of an adventure in the choppy seas and absolutely torrential rain which drenched us on the return leg! The service throughout the resort is charming and well-intentioned, though a bit hit and miss. Our luggage took around 25 mins to get to our room, because it was on a buggy with others being delivered to the rooms/villa furthest from reception first, yet we were only 50m from the lower reception. And we experienced a few misunderstandings on food/drinks orders due to the staff's lack of understanding of English (it could have been our fault, but other guests we spoke to had similar experiences). The beach activities are OK, but while there appeared to be a number of Laser dinghies available (only one, during our stay, was rigged up), there was a sole lonely Hobie Cat and both boats were often released to people who didn't appear to know much about sailing as they spent a lot of the time capsized (in very light winds). This meant long waits for a boat for my husband (a very experienced sailor). In my view, there are two absolute stand-out facilities at the Pimalai: the upper pool - huge, never crowded, with super-comfortable sun loungers and day beds and with world-class sunset views; and the Spa, stunningly located in small Thai salas set within the tropical gardens, which had some of the best treatments - massages, facials, body scrubs - we have ever had. All in all, the Pimalai provided a lovely way to see in 2017.
