In allen Belangen beste Voraussetzungen für einen erholsamen und schönen UrlaubComment of V. Günter, Germany the 2015-09-02
The 6th stay in Pimalai and it won´t be the last. It is an outstanding experience. Rooms/Villas/Suites offer everything you expect in a 5* Resort. The quality of food in the restaurants is on a high level. Having breakfast in the SevenSeas Restaurant uphill, is a perfect start in the day. With a spectacular view. But most of all, it is the staff which make the stay there perfect. Attentive, personal, polite, always doing their best to make the stay as comfortable as possible. It is like heaven, and almost home.
I have stayed in many great resorts but The Pimalai Resort & Spa take it to the next level. The service is next to none. I stayed in one of The Hillside Villas (worth the money) The view is fantastic. The infinity pool in the villa is amazing. Great facilities throughout the resort. I will definitely be coming back to this wonderful resort.
After a busy trip to Bangkok, this was the first Thai island we had been to. Pimalai is the best resort we have ever been to! The service was outstanding, the food was amazing, there are staff on hand at any time of day to help you with anything. They are incredibly polite (we felt like celebrities!!), incredibly friendly and immaculately dressed. The resort itself is beautiful, spotless, well kept and just paradise!! We were given a bottle of champagne, a cake and a bowl of fruit as a welcoming honeymoon present. The Swimming Pool was amazing but the pool at the top of tbe resort really is luxury. We spent hours there gazing at the view and were reluctant to say goodbye. There were activities arranged one day when it rained - I got to cook soup, make herbal remedies and paint a Thai umbrella!! The staff were also very helpful when my husband was ill. We will never forget the experience of staying here, we hope to come back one day and thank everyone at Pimalai for everything!
"A One of a Kind Diamond in Koh Lanta "
We loved everything about the resort! Can't wait to come back next year! The private speed boat to the island is unforgettable and breathtaking! The atmosphere was great! The staff was more than kind, prompt and went out of they're way for anything needed! The beach is fabulous! The views are gorgeous and one of a kind! The lush landscape was truly beautiful! And finally the best breakfast buffet ever! And the BEST server/attended EVER Sukanya! Thank you Sukanya for the recipe for Spicy Chicken with Holy Basil, I actually made it a few days after we sadly had to leave the resort when we got home! We will be back to that little piece of heaven! Thank you for the great time and thank you Pimalai staff for your graciousness!
We were looking for a spot by the beach in Southern Thailand, away from everything to relax. During our research of the region, we came across Ko Lanta; an island about 30 minutes boat ride (or by ferry) from Krabi on the Andaman coast. Pimalai was one of the resorts we were considering to book for a week. The correspondence via email with the resort management was very responsive and helpful. We really wanted to stay at one of the villas closer to the beach, which is located on the lower section of the compound. They have pool villas on the mountain side, nestled beautifully into the hills. We asked them if they could email us a site plan to possibly pin point the location of the room at the time of booking. They replied immediately and confirmed our preferred villa on the same day. The other resorts on the island did not seem to care with our inquiries. The choice was very clear for us; it was our first good impression of Pimalai. We flew into Krabi after a 3 night stay in Bangkok, which was a short 1 hr and 20 minutes flight. We were greeted by Pimalai’s staff at Krabi Int’l who immediately tagged our bags with the resort's badges. We took one of the Pimalai’s vans into the marina, about 45 minutes from the airport before hoping into their private jetty for a 35 minute scenic boat ride into Ko Lanta. Another van was waiting for us as we got off the boat, another 30 minutes ride before we arrived at Pimalai’s lobby. The entire transfer process was very swift and professional. We did not have to worry about our luggage since the staff handled it post arrival at the airport. The operation of the guests transfer alone from the mainland into Ko Lanta was impressive. Once we checked in, the staff informed us that the room we previously assigned to 4 months prior was undergoing construction. She smiled at us and assured us that we would be happy with our new/villa assignment. She drove us into our villa using one of the golf buggies, through Pimalai’s beautifully manicured ground. What she forgot to mention was that we were upgraded into a 2-bedroom villa with a private pool, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, and two fish ponds overlooking the ocean (504-505). We were pleasantly surprised and we could not be happier. Our luggage was delivered into our villa shorty after. Bed was very comfortable and we used the outdoor shower frequently throughout our stay. As if we did not have enough outdoor spaces to enjoy the ocean and the sun, there is a large terrace off the bedroom as well. The beach is less than a 3 minute walk through the path down from our villa. Our villa offered a total privacy. We decided to try Spice N’ Rice Restaurant for dinner on our first night. The Thai food selection was very good and service was top notch. Adda and Pan, made several great recommendations and all the dishes were presented beautifully and prepared very well. They also have good wine selections and we purchased a bottle with dinner. We told them that we would return the following night for dinner and Pan took the initiative to reserve one of the best tables in the dining room. It was a small detail and gesture but they really know how to treat their guests very well. One evening, we were craving for a panna cotta from room service. We decided to order it with a side order of gelato. Both orders arrived in 10 minutes flat via the resort’s buggy! It was impressive given the distance from the main restaurant down to our villa. Breakfast is served at the Seven Seas Restaurant up on the hill; beautifully set overlooking the resort, the pool, and the ocean beyond. The selection of breakfast was one of the greatest we experienced in SE Asia. While we were enjoying our coffee, we were approached by Pimalai’s General Manager, Franck De Lestapis. He greeted us and welcomed us into the resort and wished us a very pleasant stay after a quick chat. The breakfast staffs were very friendly and they remembered our names and how we took our coffee and teas by the second day. Keaw and her team were just simply brilliant. She checked on our table often to make sure if we were satisfied and it was simply delightful to come to breakfast every morning. Our favorite dish was the spicy eggs with chicken sausages and a touch of sweet soy sauce. The selection of pastries was fresh and there were plenty of it. They had variety of bread along with exotic tropica fruits from rambutan, dragon fruit (not my personal favorite), longans and sweet papayas. The crispy french toasts were excellent and we tried their beef meatball soups at the same time. It was an unusual combo for breakfast but we could not resist. There were plenty more to choose from of course. Mirko, one of the managers stopped by our table at breakfast the following day and gave us some recommendations on snorkeling spots/trips, sites to see and a local boat tour through the mangroves forest. Safe from concierge, arranged a local tour guide with a private car to take us around and explore the island for 5 hours. We also arranged a snorkeling tour visiting the neighboring islands few days after, which included a barbeque lunch on Pimalai’s private boat and about a half hour side trip to roam around the Old Town afterward. There was not much to see in Old Town in my opinion, and we could not wait to return to our villa and jumped into the pool. However, the snorkeling trip is highly recommended. The boat ride took us through several rock formations; simply beautiful. You can also do some sea kayaking around the boat and into secluded beaches. We really enjoyed the mangrove tour where we had amazing fresh seafood cooked by locals; we caught the fish alive and brought it literally into the pan in the kitchen. We then took a boat ride to tour the mangrove forest and fed adorable wild grey monkeys! Both excursions were the highlights of our trip. One morning, we got caught in a thunderstorm at breakfast and we decided to visit the library before we walked back to our villa; waiting for the rain to pass. The library offers collections of books and movies and it was such a cozy atmosphere to spend time in. We were watching the tropical rain passing by with the backdrop of the sea , holding a magazine while sipping a glass of freshly squeezes sweet limeade and freshly baked cookies from the library’s windows. It was very calming. We visited the spa for a couple’s massage one day. The spa is beautifully designed with local ambiance and decors. The session was very relaxing and we were enjoying a cup of ginger tea at the spa's open air lounge afterward; just before we were heading down to the private beach to take naps. Luckily, we visited the island in September during their low season and the whole place was rather quiet. We had the beach to ourselves.The beach staff prepped our lounge chairs with towels and cold water shortly after we arrived. You can explore a small town down the hill from Pimalai where they have several bars, restaurants and some shops. The town is also accessible from the beach; a quick stroll away. We had such a wonderful visit at Pimalai and we highly recommend it for a relaxing retreat with your significant others and families. If you were looking to party and explore the nightlife, this is not the spot for you. For everyone else looking for serenity with genuine services in a private paradise, book your stay! Even after a week-long visit, we were very sad to leave. The hospitality of Pimalai simply made us feel very special. Every single staff we encountered throughout the resort greeted us with smiles. Franck and his teams run such an amazing operation and it truly shows.We will return!
