If you’re looking for a relaxing, tropical getaway, we highly recommend you make the trip out to Pimalai Resort and Spa in Koh Lanta, Thailand. Over the last few years, Thailand has been booming as a popular vacation destination. Instagram models can be seen flying regularly to Bangkok. While Bangkok is great, why not get away to your own little secluded island paradise? That’s what you’ll find at Pimalai Resort and Spa. Their property sits in a breathtaking location where tropical rainforest meets the ocean, and you will always feel at home with their friendly and helpful staff who will be ready to provide you with whatever you may need. Plus, they are the only hotel in Koh Lanta that is a member of the “Small Luxury Hotels of the World” brand, so you can be rest assured you are getting a luxury vacation with them.
The accommodations at Pimalai Resort and Spa are well-planned out and range from spacious pool villas that overlook the bay and sea to beachfront villas to hillside villas that overlook the rainforest. All accommodations have A/C, a satellite TV, free wifi, a large bathroom with a bathtub and separate shower, bathrobes and slippers, a coffee and tea maker, a mini bar, a hairdryer, beach towels, and more. And the style of the room is designed to put you at ease.
Pimalai Resort and Spa’s perfect location allows for an array of exciting amenities and activities. Onsite, there are two infinity pools, both of which offer spectacular views. There are conference facilities if you need to conduct business while onsite. Their award-winning spa is integrated into their tropical vegetation, so you can get lost in the rainforest as you are pampered. There are multiple restaurants on site, so you will always have a great variety of food options to choose from. They also offer Thai cooking classes onsite, spa classes, and they have tennis courts up in their lush rainforest environment. How exciting for those who like to stay active on their vacation! Our favorite part, perhaps, is that the have an on-site library! Who doesn’t want to get immersed in a good book at such a truly special location? Excursions also include private boat rentals, a mangrove eco-tour, a forest walk, Lanta Sightseeing Tours, and free sailing boats and canoes.
For the adventure lovers out there, you can schedule an excursion to the small, unspoiled islands of Koh Kradan, Koh Ngai, Koh Muk (which features a natural cave and mangrove cruising), Koh Haa (which has a beautiful sunset cruise excursion), and Koh Rok; some of those sites offer a great location to go snorkeling, too. Diving is always a possibility, as their dive center is open all year round.
And, of course, the real reason you would want to go to a lush, tropical resort- their beach front is incredible! There is 900 meters of beach on the resort, and you’ll almost never see more than 200 people on the beach at a time.
Getting to the resort is made as easy as possible, so there’s no headache involved. It takes roughly 2 hours to get to the resort from Krabi airport. Your travel will consist of 55 minutes of driving followed by a 50-minute boat ride.
