Amazing views and service. We thought it good value within the luxury range. Beach was amazing. We brought our 6 and 8 year old boys and they loved it. Not sure if there was a kids club though we didn't need it. Good range if restaurants. Koh Lanta is quite tucked away though and secluded. Takes about 2 hours by...

This was our second stay at this outstanding resort and once again it was hard to leave. We stayed in the 3 bedroom villa which I wanted to move into! Stunning in a word.

The service at this resort, even in low season (when most resorts are understaffed), was incredible. The view from the different infinity pools are to die for. The dive shop (Scubafish) is an added bonus!

Once in a lifetime everyone should have the privilege of visiting the Pimalai, for truly outstanding luxury, impeccable service and gorgeous dining. Nothing but nothing was too much trouble for the staff who took care of every need, whim and fancy. Constantly topping up ice cold water, constantly providing lovely fresh towels, wet facecloths, etc., all part of the amazing...

So let's start at the beginning; we were met at Krabi by staff in (what became the all familiar Pimalai uniform) they were easy to see and labelled our bags and escorted us to our transfer vehicle - the vehicles were luxurious, spacious, comfortable and clean - water was also provided. Next stop the powerboat dock - another fabulously organised...
