2nd Best Resort In SE Asia
Pimalai Resort & Spa, the natural five-star retreat on Koh Lanta, is celebrating after it was named as the 2nd best resort in SE Asia in Travel + Leisure’s annual “World’s Best Awards”, which honour the finest travel experiences on the planet.
Selected by Travel + Leisure’s discerning readers, who voted for their favourite hotels, resorts, islands, cities, cruise lines, airports and more over the course of four months earlier in the year, the World’s Best Awards really do represent the “crème de la crème” of the global travel and hospitality industry.

With just 121 stylish rooms, spacious suites and spectacular villas with up to three bedrooms and private pools, all set apart from each other, every visitor – including couples, families, friends and solo travellers – can find their personal home-away-from-home. With award-winning therapies at the Pimalai Spa and world-class cuisine at a choice of restaurants, Pimalai stimulates all the senses.
Meanwhile, Kantiang Bay sets the stage for water sports, such as kayaking, windsurfing, sailing and paddle-boarding, while the Sports Centre features full-size tennis and badminton courts, a well-equipped fitness centre and a Muay Thai boxing ring. Guests can also hire bikes and cycle out to explore the surrounding area.
Pimalai’s fleet of private boats offers idyllic offshore excursions. Paradise seekers can head out into Mu Ko Lanta National Park and visit pristine islands like Koh Haa and Koh Rok, swim in crystal clear waters and uncover the colourful underwater world with a snorkelling adventure. When back on dry land, Koh Lanta is home to a wealth of wonders, such as beautiful beaches, breath-taking viewpoints, untouched jungle and the heritage-rich old town.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have been voted as Southeast Asia’s second best resort by the readers of Travel + Leisure, who are known for their deep knowledge and appreciation of quality. This honour is even more pleasing as it comes after a such a difficult period for the tourism and hospitality industry,” said Patrice Landrein, Pimalai’s General Manager.
“The global pandemic has allowed us all to take a step back and appreciate what really matters in life, and we have been delighted to provide our guests with a serene sanctuary – somewhere they can come, leave their troubles behind and reconnect with their loved ones, or themselves. We have also been able to re-evaluate our business and develop a series of exciting new offerings, including fresh dining concepts, which we expect to unveil before the end of the year, so stay tuned!” he added.
