Staying in room 228,brilliant view of sea, sitting on balcony among the trees and wildlife. Staff always helpful especially the breakfast staff. Room cleaning excellent. Food very high quality but a shame restaurants add on 17 percent to your bill. The surrounding gardens are stunning and very well cared for. Transfer from Krabi by speedboat a brilliant start to our...

We spent 2 weeks at Pimalai for our honeymoon. It is truly paradise- the setting is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in a standard room for the first week and were upgraded for the second week. Service is excellent- we were greeted at the airport with cool towels and ice cold water, and from that moment on everything was taken care...

What a wonderful resort. We stayed in a ground floor room. Th upper swimming pool is fantastic. The food is great. They have a Thai food buffet once a week at Spice N Rice restaurant. It was so good that the family spent 2.5 hours eating and listening to local music. Try all the Thai salads, then move your way...

We stayed at Pimalai in the green season. I would highly recommend this. The prices are low because of a little rain! We enjoyed the little rain we had and we had a wonderful beach and two glorious swimming pools virtually to ourselves. The staff are amazing. Nothing was too much for them. I stubbed my toe on a rock...

My sister and I booked the Pimalai Resort last minute low season without even seeing a review. It is an absolutely fantastic resort with a conscience for the environment which is very important to me, especially with the waste these resorts can leave on the beautiful surroundings. From the moment we were welcomed with an iced drink and cool scented...

Our six night stay at the Pimalai was our best hotel experience ever. All the staff were excellent and friendly and the hotel restaurants were spot on. Even though resorts are usually not our favourite the Pimalai did not have the resort feel. Nothing to complaint about.

Our second stop with andaman adventurees was the Pimalai. Pimalai is the exact definition of true Thai hospitality. It all started when we landed at the airport in Krabi. There was a minivan waiting with staff welcoming us. We felt like royalty right away. The minivan took us to their very own private boat that took us to our resort....
