The Pimalai is an ever popular resort, receiving acclaim for its combination of quality and style, in a romantic secluded setting, tremendous value and particularly recommended for those wanting to experience a top class resort in a spectacular out of the way location on 900 metres of pure white sandy beach.
The resort is set on a hillside, overlooking a quiet bay, with dense tropical forest on three sides, and a glorious beachfront. Lanta Yai is reached by a 60 minute flight from Bangkok to Krabi, followed by approximately 90 minutes to two hour transfer by road and either ferry or the resort’s speedboat (depending on the time of day/year).
The 82 rooms, suites and beach villas are dotted around the property, equipped with king or twin size beds and are built in traditional style, using local woods and fabrics. The majority are Deluxe Rooms, located on the hillside, with sea facing balcony or patio and satellite TV. In addition there are four bay front deluxe rooms which are larger and enjoy a prestigious location - early booking is essential. Also available are a selection of one and two bedroom pavilion suites that are ideal for families with extra living room. In addition there are seven private beach villas, offering one, two and three bedrooms. The one bedroom villas share a pool, and the two and three bedroom villas have private pool.
It has a secluded and rather stunning location, with some alternative nightlife or activity close by, dotted with a few bars, restaurants and shops. As the resort enjoys a totally natural setting, you do have to be comfortable with the sight and sounds of nature, and be prepared for a few steep steps linking the rooms and facilities.
