          I enjoyed the friendly nature of the people

          I didn't like the pool, it was quite dirty. I found it quite hard to get a buggy to be taken to other areas of the hotel and I think the hotel lacked staff on the beach and around the pool

        • Older travelers

          The nature, the relaxing surrounding and the service

          There are not enough activities offered by "Pimalai", like private boat trips to other islands.

          The location was amazing, and the staff were EXCEPTIONAL, the service, setting. Everything was perfect.

        • Group of friends

          Great beach with clean and warm sea, good choice of dining facilities, big and convenient villas, nice spa with big outdoor territory. Surprisingly no annoying insects, even service to get rid of any insects which might by any chance appear in guest rooms (insects can be removed upon calling housekeeping). For those who prefer pools it is better to stay in upper part of the resort in pool villas, for those preffering the sea beach villas are highly recommended (only two steps from the beach).

          There are limited excursions possibilities, also there is no nightlife for coming with friends (despite this is a great place for honeymoon / couples). Still, we were not bored in 8 days despite no nightlife due to the overall comfort, big territory of the resort and nice spa.

        • Couple
          9.2

          The service is fantastic! I was pleasently surprised all their hotel staff will greet and smile at you whenever they see you. Facilities such as library and swimming pool are great! Nice landscaping and location next to the beautiful beach is a plus!

          Entrance of Pimalai is abit far away from the nearby town area. In fact we took short cut through the beach to get to the town. However, the beach will be inaccessible at night due to high tide. Another minor thing is the kettle has exposed heating coils, so there are greenish growth on it which I wont want to use.

          I loved everything about the Pimalai and can't wait to plan my next trip there

          Everything, the atmosphere, service was all terrific and couldn't be faulted. The staff were friendly and attentive to all our needs.

          8.8

          The localization is fantastic, beach is very beatiful. All the staff is very nice, efficient and make you feel special all the time. The Spa is also very good and have good price for the quality provided. At the new part of the Pool Villas the common swiming pool is really nice with a fantastic view.

          The decorationof the different bars and rooms on the older part of the resort are a litlle bit outdated.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          I loved the design of the hotel area, it was spacious, beautiful with all the little roads going here and there, and the beach and all the facilities there were great fun for our small children, I loved the bodysufing boards, I loved the food i the Rak Talay restaurant in the evenings and the breakfast was a true pleasure.

          The only thing I did not like was that the cleaning staff removed an opened can of apple juice that we had not touched from the mini bar which cost 133 TBH and that the library had very limited opening hours and very limited choice. Pimalai is a bit remote, and it is a great service to be able to watch DVDs with small children. We bought everything they had in the small village close by, ending up watching a Thai version of Madagascar III...

          Best spa ever!!!!! Great resort! nothing negative to say about it...The staff is lovely, always looking after you. The bedroom is very large, very clean, very nice. The pools, the restaurants are great. We did the elephant trekking, amazing! and a day trip 2 dives, the dive center arrange a nanny for the whole day for our young daughter (3 years) on board. Dives a little bite expensive. Expensive resort but it's worth it!!!!

        • Couple
          8.8

          Absolutely breathtaking infinity pools and views. 5* luxury at its best. Food was fresh and excellent.

          Service at breakfast was quite poor. Often had to wait too long for coffee,etc.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          I have stayed at Pimalai before. The location and hotel quality is exceptional. It has the added advantage of being on a beach, this means you are not restricted to resort only dining. The beach has the real advantage of having amazing 'toes in the water' restaurants that are locally owned. The bars are also authentic Thai.

          Loved everything about it

        • Couple
          9.2

          Beautiful place, staff were amazing and loved the iced water and fruit platters that were served on the beach.

          Seafood buffet was delicious but very expensive.

          7.8

          Excellent staff, location, good food. Clean and well maintained.

          Internet access was a bit variable in quality. It was expensive - they doubled prices for Christmas ...

          Beautiful hotel, immaculate grounds, extremely polite & helpful staff.
