Southern Thailand’s Mu Ko Lanta National Park will reopen to visitors on 15 October 2022 following its annual restoration with Pimalai Resort & Spa conducting immersive small-scale excursions to two of the region’s most idyllic islands – Koh Haa and Koh Rok.
Every year, this tropical wonderland is closed for six months to allow its delicate ecology to be refreshed and replenished.
Pimalai Resort & Spa fully supports the closure and works with local authorities to protect and preserve the area.
Mu Ko Lanta National Park is a breathtaking natural paradise – 134 square kilometres of turquoise waters, unspoiled islands, hidden coves and captivating coastlines in southern Thailand’s Krabi province, blessed with an abundance of flora and fauna, including lush jungles and vibrant marine life.
The Koh Haa Snorkelling & Sunset adventure transports travellers to Koh Haa (Five Islands) – a captivating collection of limestone islets that enclose a dazzling aquamarine lagoon, a technicolour coral reef and a pure white beach. This provides the perfect spot for an afternoon of swimming and snorkelling. The leisurely boat ride back to Pimalai will be enhanced with onboard canapés and cool drinks, including wine and beer, as the sun sets over the Andaman Sea.
The Fabulous Koh Rok tour is a scenic one-hour boat trip to Koh Rok, a pair of paradise islands lined with powder-soft sandy beaches and lapped by warm, crystal-clear waters. Following an hour of swimming and snorkelling, guests will be treated to a delicious onboard lunch before embarking on a sightseeing cruise around Koh Rok, with even more opportunities to plunge into the sparkling sea and uncover the enthralling underwater world.
Pimalai’s fleet of seven boats are all skippered by professional captains who have a deep knowledge of the local area.
With 121 stylish rooms, spacious suites and spectacular villas, all nestled in 40 hectares of nature and cascading down to a 900-metre-long soft sandy beach, Pimalai is a haven of tranquillity.
When guests are not discovering the wonders of Mu Ko Lanta National Park, they can enjoy a range of low-impact activities such as non-motorised water sports, Thai cooking classes, muay Thai boxing lessons, yoga sessions, soothing treatments at Pimalai Spa and trekking along jungle trails.
This heavenly hideaway also features a kids’ club, fabulous restaurants, a Sports Centre with tennis, badminton and basketball courts, a running track, cycling trails and two infinity pools that appear suspended in the forest canopy, overlooking the ocean.
Pimalai is featuring Early Bird Promotions with discounts of 10 to 30 percent on bookings through to 31 October 2023.
Rates commence at THB6652 (approximately AUD270) per night including daily breakfast and a roundtrip Krabi Airport transfer for two people.

“At Pimalai, we feel a deep connection with Mu Ko Lanta National Park and a deep responsibility to preserve it for future generations. That’s why we conduct regular coastal cleaning activities, do not allow motorised water sports and only permit small-scale, eco-sensitive excursions in the area. We are delighted to invite our conscientious guests to explore this pristine paradise when it reopens this October. Following five months of replenishing rains and no human interference, this idyllic area will be looking more breath-taking than ever,” said Charintip Tiyaphorn, Pimalai’s Owner Representative.
