The iconic Pimalai Resort & Spa on Koh Lanta has always been a place where guests come to escape. Whether they’re A-listers who want to unwind away from public eye, executives seeking a break from their hectic schedules, or simply people who appreciate the finer things in life, Pimalai’s and Koh Lanta’s timeless blend of seclusion, serenity and luxury makes it the idyllic island hideaway.
But getting away from it all doesn’t have to mean sitting on the beach and reading a book; at Pimalai, stressed-out city-dwellers can do as much or as little as they choose. Surrounded by 100 acres of jungle with a 900-metre-long sandy beach, this is a haven of tranquility where couples and families can indulge in luxurious accommodation, world-class cuisine and personal pampering. It also provides a wonderful base to explore the charms of southern Thailand, with an extensive array of immersive adventures.
Curious explorers can soak up the spectacular Andaman seascapes with a choice of offshore excursions and activities. Discover mangrove forests by long-tail boat, take an enchanting and eco-friendly gondola trip at sunrise, or try sea kayaking, body-boarding windsurfing and sailing from Pimalai’s private beach. Back on dry land, guests can play beach games, such as football, volleyball and pétanque. Koh Lanta also has a wealth of wonders just waiting to be uncovered; experience traditional island life with a visit to the old town and local markets, trek to caves, waterfalls and viewpoints, or find your own personal slice of paradise with a trip to remote beaches, where warm, shallow seas gently lap the soft sand.
This exotic island is also a captivating spot for craft lovers and culture seekers. Visitors who want to learn a new skill can master the art of batik painting on Koh Lanta Noi, Thai cooking class with professional chefs at Pimalai, or even Muay Thai boxing with daily classes. Alternatively, visitors can simply relax and enjoy the resort’s recreational facilities, including the award-winning spa, fitness centre, tennis courts, water sports, sailing and more.

“Pimalai is an outstanding island retreat where peace and privacy are guaranteed. Our guests come to us because they want to get away from it all, but they don’t want to be bored. Our visitors also want interesting activities that can’t be found on some of Thailand’s more touristy islands. The beauty of Koh Lanta is that it retains a sense of authenticity, with unspoiled landscapes, traditional villages and time-honoured arts and crafts. In this new era of travel, exclusivity and experiences are more important than ever. Pimalai lets you recapture the heritage of Thailand’s stunning southern islands,” said Patrice Landrein, Pimalai’s General Manager.
To ensure that all guests are kept completely safe during their stay, the resort has introduced “Pimalai Care” – a comprehensive and innovative new programme of health and hygiene measures. These include 24-hour vacancy periods between bookings, ozone sanitisation in guest rooms and heat cleaning in the kitchens, and even three disinfection tunnels. And of course, social distancing is guaranteed at Pimalai thanks to the location and layout of the resort.
