I was planning my honeymoon and Thailand was our first choice of destinations, due to being in the same time zone and less than 10 hours flight from Perth. I spent days looking at various resorts(on Tripadvisor) around Thailand, and a friend recommended the Pimalai. As soon as I saw the website, I knew it was right up there with...

Thank you GLEN H - great review and thank you also for mentioning that we are not that overly priced in food & beverage, in relation to some previous statement . Indeed wine remains expensive as tax at 350% when entering the Kingdom ; we still manage to sell cheaper that in the high end hotels in Bangkok. Thank you...

The resort is built on a relatively steep hill and sprawls down to the beach in the form of lodgings with different sizes and amenities inside a well maintained landscape. We stayed in a private villa that had a spectacular sea view and a very practical layout with a private infinity pool. The overall condition of the buildings calls for...

Thank you Lone Z - great to read and thank you for mentioning the fantastic service and the staff being so friendly; apparently they were being quoted as being "very cold throughout the resort lately"... and were quite concerned about it.

I can't think of a single way the place could be improved. The service from the minute we got there was brilliant. The food, the views, the room, the beach, the pools, the activities, the calm atmosphere.....everything was brilliant, and made the whole trip. I know Thailand is known for the friendly people and smiling faces, but this place took...
