Children: Children of any ages are welcome providing they don’t mind walking uphill or using the hotel buggy to reach the villas and some facilities

Our Opinion: Due to the time taken to reach Pimalai Resort and the fact that it offers a wider range of sporting facilities than most other beach hotels in Thailand, it is more suitable for longer beach stays. Although relatively large, it is a well-designed, exclusive resort spread over a steep hillside location yet with a wonderful 900m long white sand beach. Ideal for families of mixed age groups or couples wanting activities and facilities whilst being in a remote location.
