We had a wonderful experience at Pimalai. From the moment we were greeted at the airport the service was seamless. The management really lead by example and are very present. In fact we wondered if Franck (the GM) had cloned himself. Unusually for a resort of this calibre they offer an array of free activities of which the wine tasting...

If you are looking for an idyllic, relaxing vacation in paradise, look no further than Pimalai. I traveled about 30 hours to get there (including 3 planes, a van ride, and the Pimalai speed boat), but the journey was totally worth it. I have been fortunate to travel throughout the Caribbean and Europe, and have been to many beautiful beaches,...
