16 days off, 16 days more than 9,000 km away from home. After having >> two stunning nights in Bangkok we are off to Krabi (Ko Lanta) – just to come down and start to recover from a stressful year.

Welcome to Pimalai Resort & SPA

We – let me say my wife 😉 – choose the >>Pimaiai Resort & SPA to stay far away from the popular tourist destinations such as Koh Samui, Phuket or Koh Phi Phi – back to nature, back to recovery. After a 90minutes flight from Bangkok, another 45 minutes by shuttle, we arrived at the peer to get lifted to the hotel resort with a speedboat.

This beachfront resort on Koh Lanta has Thai-styled villas snuggled into a hillside jungle, panoramic views of the Andaman Sea, and a dreamy, secluded vibe. It’s the perfect choice for us.

 #THEBEACH At Pimalai

A highlight was, of course, the beach itself! Ba Kantieng Beach, with its crescent-shaped bay, was not only gorgeous to look at while swimming in the infinity pools, but absolutely lovely to walk along. It’s effortless to have a relaxing beach day because Pimalai provides umbrellas, lounge chairs, and beach towels free to its guests. Weather you go left or right you find several small beach bars where you can spend hours and hours just watching the ocean or enjoying the nice sunsets.

#POOLS At Pimalai

Once you are at Pimalai Hotel & SPA you have to discover the whole resort area. Especially the infinity pool area at the top of the hill is a place for your best recovery.

#Rooms At Pimalai

We spent 6 nights in a Deluxe Room (48 qm) with a partial sea view and froa view of the gardens. The bathroom, featuring a bathtub and a separate walk-in shower, open up into the bedroom.


The Pimalai Resort & SPA has also an array of activities you can book, including diving, snorkeling, island exploration f.ex. to Koh Haa, cooking classes, and TENNIS. Of course it did not take a day and I visited the courts. To be honest, the demands must not be set too high, because who expects a hardcourt “a la US Open style” in the jungles of Thailand?

Two courts – paved like the main roads through Koh Lanta – are as fast as a ice rink, but with a colour inspired by the US Open in New York 😉 No matter who just wants to hit a ball on holiday or wants to play some “endless balls” at the 30-meter-long ball wall, you are exactly right here.
