Iconic luxury Koh Lanta retreat, Pimalai Resort & Spa is inviting Thai residents to take a fresh look at their home country by taking a spectacular staycation on the pristine shores of southern Thailand.
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 40 acres of unspoiled jungle which cascades down to a 900 metre-long stretch of soft sandy beach, Pimalai is a haven of tranquillity 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.
Even the resort’s name exudes a sense of calm; 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 influences all areas of the resort, from the 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 seascape with island cruises and diving excursions, invigorating their bodies with yoga, fitness, Muay Thai sessions, or discovering the local area with bike rides to traditional Thai villages and markets. The impressive Sports Centre also features two full-sized tennis courts, basketball courts and other activities to helps guests stay fit and healthy. Then at the end of the day, couples and families and 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 Staycation Package starting from THB 18,840 net, based on double occupancy. Guests booking three-night stays from now until 20th December 2020 can enjoy attractive rates with 20% off, plus daily breakfast, return airport transfers, a one-hour spa treatment, a sumptuous surf & turf buffet dinner or a 3-course A La Carte dinner at Seven Seas, the hillside Western fine-dining restaurant, and a Thai set dinner at Spice and Rice, the resort’s signature Thai restaurant. A choice of accommodation is available, including Deluxe Rooms, Pavilion Suites, and one-, and 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 life. 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 has become a favoured place to stay for celebrities and repeat visitors alike. It is also considered one of Thailand’s top dining destinations; its two fine-dining restaurants – Rak Talay and Seven Seas – are both ranked in the top three in the whole of Krabi province, according to TripAdvisor, and Pimalai hosts regular “Gastronomic Journeys” with Michelin-starred chefs.
