Fodor's Review

Pimalai's mantra is "peace, serenity and solitude," explaining why royalty and celebrities regularly favor the elegant resort, which offers seductive yet unpretentious luxury in a place where the rain forest meets the sea, fronting a stunning beach. Sleek, Thai-style accommodations (ranging from deluxe rooms to beachfront villas) are outfitted with teak floors, Thai silks, and private outdoor spaces (many also have infinity pools and outdoor showers). Nestled in a lush, delightfully cacophonous hilly jungle and overlooking stunning water vistas, the property is a paradisal world unto itself. The main areas are surrounded by hundreds of hectares of verdant land (guests can explore in buggies), which further honors the promise of privacy. Check-in to relax by the pool, play on the beach, take a yoga class, lose yourself in the fairy-tale-like tiered spa garden (complete with waterfalls and streams), and indulge in a sumptuous pampering session (booking ahead is essential).
