Thailand: Pimalai invites guests to discover Thailand via local experiences and island excursions
KOH LANTA, THAILAND – Pimalai Resort & Spa, the natural five-star retreat in Koh Lanta, is inviting guests to return to paradise this winter with an extended escape at one of Southeast Asia’s finest resorts. Amid the breath-taking scenery of Southern Thailand, travellers can reconnect with nature and rediscover the wonders of the Kingdom, far away from the tourist crowds.
Pimalai understands that the upheaval of the last two years has caused many people to experience elevated levels of anxiety and stress. During this period however, the closure of Thailand’s borders enabled the country’s tropical flora and fauna to flourish, without the negative impact of humans. Now, with Thailand having reopened to overseas visitors on 1st November 2021, Pimalai is ready to welcome international travellers back to Koh Lanta’s pure shores for small-scale, low-impact vacations that help them to restore their personal equilibrium.
To celebrate the return of its cherished international guests, Pimalai has unveiled its “Back to Paradise” package, which lets couples and families unwind for even longer at this iconic resort. This new six-night package includes outstanding accommodation in a choice of luxurious rooms, suites or pool villas, plus daily breakfast in the sea-facing restaurant, one exquisite à la carte Thai dinner by the beach, a 60-minute aromatic massage, and a shorter direct speedboat transfer from the mainland.
To fully immerse guests in this island paradise, this package also includes two newly relaunched excursions to the idyllic islets in Mu Ko Lanta National Park, which reopened on 15th October following a six-month rejuvenation. The “Koh Haa Sunset” tour transports visitors to Koh Haa, a gorgeous group of limestone karsts that enclose a turquoise lagoon, technicolour coral reef and pure white beach. Meanwhile, the “Fabulous Koh Rok” adventure takes travellers across the sparkling sea to a pair of islands lined with powder-soft sands and lapped by warm, shallow seas. With plenty of time for swimming, snorkelling and chilling out on empty beaches, these dreamy day trips will soothe the soul and inspire the senses.
Nestled within 100 acres of lush jungle, cascading gently down to a 900-metre stretch of white sand at Kantiang Bay, Pimalai is a haven of tranquility. Exotic plants and flowers blossom, native wildlife thrives and every aspect of the property is integrated with the environment. Surrounded by the wonders of nature, experience-seeking travellers can enjoy soothing therapies at the award-winning Pimalai Spa, savour world-class cuisine, or take part in a wealth of low-impact activities such as kayaking, windsurfing and paddle-boarding, along with beach games, yoga sessions, Thai boxing, fitness classes, tennis, badminton, bicycle hire and more. No motorised water sports are permitted at Pimalai.
Pimalai recently embarked upon an ambitious 10-year plan to protect the environment and establish Koh Lanta as a leading ecotourism destination. Launched in collaboration with Green Globe, these new goals include a 15% drop in electricity use, a 10% reduction of water usage, a 5% decline in waste consumption, a 5% increase in its use of responsibly-sourced items, and most importantly of all, a 20% reduction of its carbon footprint.
Pimalai is one of only 26 properties worldwide to form part of Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s (SLH) Considerate Collection, an exclusive community of socially responsible and environmentally conscious luxury hotels. With such a strong focus on sustainability and a dedication to delivering world-class hospitality, it is little surprise that Pimalai was recently named as the second-best resort in Southeast Asia in Travel + Leisure’s annual “World’s Best Awards”, which honour the finest travel experiences on the planet.
“With our blissful blend of seclusion, serenity and sustainability, Pimalai has always been popular with foreigners who want to relax in luxury, away from the crowds. Now, following the reopening of Thailand to international visitors, we want to let guests rediscover the magic of Koh Lanta and restore their own inner peace. The global pandemic was like a reset button for the planet, allowing ecosystems to be replenished. Following two years of lockdowns, we want to give individuals, couples and families the chance to achieve the same sense of personal rejuvenation with an eco-friendly escape in our island paradise,” said Patrice Landrein, Pimalai’s General Manager.
The Back to Paradise package is available from now until 31st October 2022, starting from just THB 72,545 net for six nights (based on Deluxe Room accommodation from now until 20th December 2021). Rates may fluctuate based on the room type or dates of stay. To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +66 (0) 2 320 5500.
