Pimalai Resort and Spa, a little patch of heaven
Koh Lanta is a popular tourist island off the Southern Thailand’s Andaman Coast. For those who seek this island’s beautiful beaches and open skies but don’t want to bother with touristy hustle and bustle, the Pimalai Resort and Spa is a great choice. This hidden gem is extremely private; it is only accessible by boat. With a hundred acres of tropical flora and fauna and nine hundred meters of white sandy beaches, this resort is a great way to get away from the craziness of life and simply enjoy nature.
An Elegant Place to Rest
All of the Pimalai rooms, suites, and villas are furnished with vibrant cotton and silk upholstered furniture, including beds covered in deluxe Thai fabrics to ensure a good night’s sleep for guests. The floors are made of richly polished teak wood and each window is covered with an authentic rattan curtain. To magnify this oriental feel, the resort’s creators handpicked Siamese artifacts to personalize each room.
The Deluxe Rooms all come with a verandah overlooking either the luscious greenery of the resort garden or the serene blue Andaman Sea. Guests of the Pavilion Suite enjoy an outdoor terrace and open air shower overlooking a private manicured garden. The Villas are the resort’s most luxurious option. These provide ample living space and privacy. Each villa also includes a personal infinity pool with a marvelous view of the Andaman Sea.
Dining in Paradise
The Pimalai Resort offers many dining options. For fans of authentic Thai food, the best eatery is Spice N’ Rice. This classy venue is located in a landscaped garden, where chefs grow the fruits, vegetables, and spices used in most of the dishes.
Some guests don’t just want to eat Thai food – they want to make it. These guests can enjoy Thai cooking lessons taught by a Head Chef. After learning many famous Thai cuisine recipes, cooking students are awarded an “Arroy Dee” cooking certificate, recipe guide book, and commemorative Pimalai cooking apron.
Pamper and Play at Pimalai
Nestled within the Koh Lanta jungle, the open air Pimalai Spa is a great way to find peace on vacation. Experienced massage therapists are always prepared to lead guests on a journey to relaxation through their exotic treatments. Incorporating natural elements into full body massages and wraps invigorate the mind and body.
Pimalai Resort also has much in store for guests who find peace among the waves. Water sports lovers can enjoy complementary windsurfing boards, paddle boards, and even sailing boats throughout their stay. Excursions can also be easily planned to snorkel or scuba in the Andaman Sea. Guests love exploring the coral reefs, watching colorful fish dart around in the crystal clear waters.
If guests want to stay on land, there are no shortage of fun activities. To get closer to nature, the resort offers trekking expeditions both on foot and on the back of an elephant. This is a great way to witness the biodiversity of the island. Many guests report seeing birds, lizards, and even monkeys on these unforgettable journeys.
