Pimalai Invites Thai Residents To Escape To A “Place Of Purity” In Koh Lanta


Iconic luxury Koh Lanta retreat, Pimalai Resort & Spa is inviting Thai residents to take a fresh look at their home country by taking a staycation in total privacy on the pristine shores of southern Thailand, with a three-night package starting from just THB 16,445 net.While Thai nationals and expats might be familiar with the more popular beach resorts of Phuket or Krabi provinces, the paradise island of Koh Lanta remains blissfully off-the-beaten-track. Set amid 100 acres of unspoiled jungle which cascades down to a 900 metre-long beach, Pimalai is a haven of tranquillity and privacy where guests can escape the hustle and bustle of the city and reconnect with nature. And yet, it is also easily accessible, less than two hours by car and boat from Krabi Airport.

Derived from the Sanskrit words “pimon” (which means purity or light), and “alai” (a place or location), Pimalai literally means a “Place of Purity”. This name has influenced all areas of the resort, from its setting surrounded by nature, its restaurants, which use fresh and organic produce, to the indoor-outdoor spa, which blends seamlessly into the lush gardens.

Guests can spend endless days exploring the spectacular Andaman Sea with island cruises, diving excursions and encounters with sharks, discovering the local area with bike rides to traditional Thai villages and markets, or invigorating their bodies with yoga, fitness, and Muay Thai sessions. The impressive Sports Centre also features two full-sized tennis courts, basketball courts and other activities to helps guests stay fit and healthy. They can also pamper themselves at the resort’s award-winning spa that offers a combination of traditional and contemporary techniques that rejuvenate body, mind and soul.

Then at the end of the day, couples and families can come together and reflect on their experiences over a sunset cocktail, a beachfront barbecue or a romantic dinner under the stars. Simply heavenly!

Pimalai is now inviting Thai residents to experience this beautiful beachfront retreat with a special Thai Resident Package starting from THB 16,445 net, based on double occupancy. Valid for stays from 9 July 2020 to 30 April 2021, this three-night package includes daily breakfast, return airport transfers, a one-hour spa treatment per person, one sumptuous surf & turf set dinner, and one exotic Thai set dinner. The value of both dinners and the spa sessions for two included in this package totals to THB 10,116. Accommodation ranges from Deluxe Rooms, Pavilion Suites to one-, two- and three-bedroom Hillside Villas with sea views and private pools.

“At Pimalai, we pride ourselves on being out of the ordinary. Guests come to us because they want to escape, whether they’re A-listers who live in the public eye, executives who have non-stop schedules, or simply those people who like to escape the crowds and enjoy the finer things in total privacy. Koh Lanta has a wonderfully laid-back vibe which reflects a more traditional era of Thai island life. As this becomes harder to find, we are delighted to invite Thai residents to discover Pimalai’s perfect blend of seclusion, serenity and five-star services,” said Patrice Landrein, Pimalai’s General Manager.

Pimalai Resort & Spa has enhanced its hygiene and safety protocols. Called “PImalai Care”, this programme is in line with the “new normal” of travel and hospitality. This initiative includes innovative measures such as 24-hour vacancy periods between bookings, three disinfection tunnels, ozone sanitisation in the guest rooms and heat cleaning in the kitchens. Privacy and social distancing are already guaranteed at Pimalai, thanks to the location and layout of the resort. Accommodation is spread throughout the estate and villas are separated by lush vegetation and spaced by at least two metres. There are no corridors or elevators, all public areas, pools and F&B outlets are in the open-air, and outdoor activities can be organised in total safety on the private beach.
