100 acres of tropical vegetation, 900 metres of white sands– Pimalai’s stats really do impress. However, dig a little deeper and you’ll find that this luxury resort is about more than padding the numbers. From the award-winning spa to the flawlessly welcoming service of the staff, you’ll be looked after with that signature Thai hospitality.

In more detail

 Other than direct access to its pristine beach, Pimalai’s secluded setting on Koh Lanta’s southern tip showcases the best of Thai island life. Although delightfully remote, short sandy strolls will bring you to beach-hut restaurants and bars where live music caps relaxed evenings. There are even sea gypsy villages where 100-year-old shacks are built on stilts over the water.

However, you won’t have to wander far for some excitement. Pimalai puts on a full range of complimentary water sports, including kayaking, windsurfing, paddle boarding and sailing. Or, head out on island-hopping cruises for some superb snorkelling and diving.

Back at base it’s an altogether more refined affair. Each room is carefully styled in dark-wood accents and comes with its own private balcony for pretty views over the lush greenery and the sea beyond. And, while even the standard options are 48 square metres in size, you can upgrade to pavilions and villas that feature the likes of private gardens and pools. Those set right on the beach are the most impressive.

Pimalai also features a superb spa. As the winner of Condé Nast accolades and the World Luxury Spa Award, a blend of contemporary and traditional techniques makes for truly soothing treatments. You might want to take your massage in the comfort of your villa.

But it’s not just the spa that Condé Nast fell for. The resort’s infinity pool was selected by the magazine as having one of the world’s finest views, host to a 180° panorama over the glittering Andaman Sea. Its 50-metre length is also ideal for those all-important fitness laps. Dining is equally considered, with three options spanning from beachside relaxation to Thai delicacies and Western fine dining. The private dining – whether in-villa or on the beach – is particularly good. Feeling inspired? Book onto a cooking course.
