A stay at Pimalai, meaning "a little patch of heaven" in ancient Sanskrit, will rekindle a love of nature.

Amidst 100 acres of vegetation, and with direct access to over 900 metres of pristine beach, the sights and sounds of nature are all around this elegant beach resort.

Close to the Lanta Marine National Park and nestled within the serenity of surrounding mountains, this is one of Koh Lanta’s best kept secrets. The hour long speedboat journey to Koh Lanta from Krabi reveals stunning views of Thailand’s smaller islands, and is the perfect introduction to this off-the-beaten-track destination.
