Email

Pimalai Resort & Spa, the natural five-star sanctuary on Koh Lanta, is inviting Thai nationals and expats to take a break from the stress and strain of city life with an island escape that promises the perfect blend of serenity, seclusion and personal space in a choice of spectacular villas.Ever since the start of the global pandemic, this iconic luxury resort has proven to be a popular choice for domestic residents who wanted to relocate their life and work. Koh Lanta is blissfully off the beaten track, with a laid-back vibe and no busy beaches or congested streets. At Pimalai, just 121 spacious rooms, suites and villas are scattered among 100 acres of lush forested hillside, all separated by at least two metres, so social distancing is guaranteed. Surrounded by native plants such as coconut palms, banyan trees and bird of paradise flowers, and wildlife such as eagles, hornbills and dolphins, this is an eco-friendly haven of tranquility.

Throughout their stay, guests can take part in an array of immersive activities – either on their own or in the company of close friends or family. The resort’s private 900-metre-long stretch of sand at Kantiang Bay sets the stage for beach games and non-motorised water sports, such as kayaking, windsurfing, sailing and body boarding, all of which can be enjoyed free-of-charge.

Visitors can stay fit and healthy at Pimalai’s tennis or badminton courts, fitness centre, Muay Thai ring, lakeside running track or cycling paths, while yoga classes promote mindfulness, which is so important during these times of elevated anxiety. The multi-award-winning Pimalai Spa will also help to ease tension with a wide range of soothing therapies*. Private beachfront dining creates a sense of romance while also ensuring social distancing, while Thai cooking classes are a wonderful way to relax and reconnect with your loved ones.
