Krabi Holiday At The Pimalai Resort And Spa, Koh Lanta, Thailand

Oct 17, 2007
A Krabi Holiday at the Pimalai Resort and Spa Koh Lanta, Krabi really begins at Krabi pier after your long international flight when you catch the hotel's cruiser that will take you to Lanta Yai.

After a short but comfortable trip of around 50 minutes you will arrive to find a waiting buggy at the pier. This will gently wind its way up the hill, stopping to allow you to enjoy the view.

Pimalai is spectacular and the view of Ba Kan Tiang Bay is simply amazing, and you will already be glad you have picked this hotel in Krabi for your Thai Holidays, and that will be even before properly arriving!!.

Reception at the Pimalai is behind a small lilly filled pool with fountains, you will find reception and a cold towel, a cool refreshing drink and a garland of jasmine will greet you, before you will be escorted to your accommodation

Luxury is the keyword here which is why the Pimalai has a reputation as one of the top resorts and spas to be found in Thailand, and absolutely right for a Thailand Honeymoon.

There is a variety of accommodation available from the superior rooms in sixteen clusters of two storey buildings, each room has 48 square metres of living space, followed by the Deluxe Rooms with views of Ba Kan Tiang Bay and has more than 70 square metres of living space.

There are a number of one bedroom suites, and these Pavilion Suites have 110 square metres of living space, and then there are the two bedroom Pavilion Suites measuring 170 square metres.

Finally the luxury extends to one, two, and three bedroomed Beach Villas , the two and three bedroom villas having their own infinity pool.

All accommodation units are beautifully furnished with the TV/DVD/CD systems you would expect in a world class resort.

When it comes to eating the main restaurant the Ban Pimalai offrers breakfast lunch and dinner overlooking the infinity pool and the bay, and you can choose Thai or western.

Spice and Rice restaurant is very elegant and air-conditioned, offering Thai cuisine.

The Rak Talay Bar & restaurant is open from before lunch to almost midnight and offers everything from snacks, pizzas, to grilled seafood.

As you would expect there is a pool bar and a lobby bar, and food in the restaurants is good, plus the fact there is enough variety not to let you get bored

It is fair to say that the prices for food and drink in the hotel are high, but then you expect that when you are in a top five star Thai hotel. If this is a problem to you there is a nearby solution in the beach restaurant Same Same but Different, or the Baan Lanta, and the laid back Why Not Bar all within walking distance of the hotel.

The Spa is a great experience, not to be missed and is especially geared to couples which is one of the reasons it is such a great place for a Thailand Honeymoon.

Some people might find the Pimalai too isolated, but it really is a Thai Krabi Holiday Paradise. The staff are helpful, and friendly if you are friendly. Some people seem to get a status attack when they go to luxury hotels, and then complain the staff are not obliging, and wonder why!!
