A favorite among A-listers, this spectacular five-star island retreat allows guests to get away from the stress of the city, reconnect with nature and rediscover their inner selves
Pimalai Resort & Spa, the luxury resort surrounded by nature on Koh Lanta, is inviting guests to escape the stress and strain of everyday life and enjoy an exclusive and luxurious hideaway on the pure shores of the Andaman Sea.
Located on a stunning 900-meter-long stretch of sandy beach and surrounded by 100 acres of lush tropical forest, Pimalai is a favorite among A-listers and high-end visitors seeking a natural retreat. Blissfully secluded, away from the tourist bustle of southern Thailand’s better-known islands, this award-winning resort provides a unique opportunity to detox your mind, declutter your thoughts and break free of your daily routine.
Guests can spend endless days relaxing in Pimalai’s exotic surroundings or enjoying the five-star facilities. For example, the Pimalai Spa offers a wide range of rejuvenating treatments, including massages, scrubs, and wraps, plus an outdoor jacuzzi and steam room. Alternatively, more active visitors can revive their senses with a workout in the fitness center or Muay Thai boxing ring, work up a sweat on the tennis court, or plunge into a choice of two infinity pools.
For urban escapees in search of truly other-worldly experience, the PADI-certified Gold Palm Dive Center is open all-year-round and allows guests to discover a dazzling diversity of tropical marine life, including manta rays, sea turtles and even whale sharks. Mangrove tours, sea kayaking, and island excursions also showcase Koh Lanta’s magical marine environment.
Gliding across the ocean waves on a private boat, an island-hopping adventure is an ideal way to refresh one’s mind and spirit. The Talabeng Scenic Cruise & Koh Ngai Fun Day visits a collection of island gems in the Andaman Sea, including Koh Talabeang, Koh Ngai and Koh Chueak, with plenty of opportunities to swim in the crystal clear waters, snorkel over colorful coral reefs or sunbathe on secluded sandy shores.
Back on dry land, a series of activities, including forest walks, cultural tours, cooking classes and bicycle adventures around Koh Lanta, allows visitors to delve deeper into this exquisite island’s rich local heritage.
Finally, peace and privacy seekers can unwind in Pimalai’s luxurious accommodation, which includes a choice of Beachside Villas and Hillside Pool Villas with multiple bedrooms. These spectacular living spaces come fully fitted with every home comfort and high-tech amenity one could desire, creating cozy sanctuaries for guests to cuddle up with their loved ones, recapture their creative inspiration, or simply take refuge from the outside world.
“Modern life can be stressful, so we all need to get away from it all from time to time. Pimalai has welcomed celebrities for many years, providing them with a haven of peace and seclusion, away from the spotlight. But it’s not just the rich and famous who need to relax and recalibrate; everyone should take the time to escape the heat of the city and reconnect with nature – and themselves. Whether you’re in search of a solo sojourn, a couple’s retreat or a rejuvenating break with family or friends, Pimalai will help you find your perfect hideaway,” said Franck de Lestapis, Pimalai’s long-serving general manager.
