We specifically look for properties that are unpretentious, natural and that exude an innate individual personality of their own and the Pimalai fulfills this criteria in all respects
Thailand (PRWEB) September 2, 2008
Officially opened at the end of 2001, Pimalai sits resplendent on Koh Lanta, one of a collection of pretty isles in the southern Andaman Sea and arguably Thailand's best kept secret. With nearly half a mile of white sandy beach, the Pimalai pioneered the introduction of up-market hospitality on Koh Lanta, liberating a small piece of paradise from what had become the reserve of backpackers.
Today, Koh Lanta remains reasonably underdeveloped which is a key factor in Thailand in Style's decision to include the Pimalai within its portfolio. Guests at the Pimalai are guaranteed an oasis far from the maddening crowds.
"The Pimalai was an obvious choice for Thailand in Style", says Miguel Cunat, CEO of the In Style Travel Group, "We specifically look for properties that are unpretentious, natural and that exude an innate individual personality of their own and the Pimalai fulfills this criteria in all respects".
The Pimalai consists of a 100 acre estate with 121 accommodation units spanning nine categories, six of which are private villas. With four one-bedroom beach villas that share a swimming pool, this is perfect for small groups who can live in complete self-contained privacy with private dinner parties a daily option.
The Pimalai's Pool Villas enjoy an exclusive hill-side location above the Pimalai's lesser accommodation:
"Piamalai's Pool Villas, which opened in January 2006 (are) sixty metres above sea level with bay views so wide they're practically convex, each unit boasts a private infinity pool, sundeck and sala, sexy lighting and plenty of space." (Lifestyle & Travel, Jane Teeling).
In 2006, the UK's Independent Newspaper voted Pimalai in its Top 50 Best Wedding Sites and the Pimalai is wholly deserving of this accolade with a breathtaking location that lends itself to weddings, honeymoons and renewal of vows and an utterly seamless service; a combination that was a clincher where Thailand In Style's selection process was concerned.
Pimalai's Thai wedding ceremony takes place near the beach under a small gazebo decorated with tropical flowers. The wedding formula includes flower decorations, Buddhist monks to conduct the ceremony, bouquet and corsage, sparkling wine for the toast and a wedding cake. The recommended stay is 9-nights; the number 9 being an auspicious number in Thailand.
With a staff to guest ratio of 3:1, three superb restaurants, a world-class spa and a location within a marine national park, clients are not subjected to the continual drone of marine engines or have to involuntarily subscribe to the "might-is-right" theory and swim frantically to avoid incoming speed boats and these are fundamental factors that are taken into account by Thailand In Style when it selects properties for portfolio inclusion.
In 2007 the Wall Street Journal hailed the Pimalai as Thailand's leading resort in their World Travel Awards (the "Travel Industry's equivalent to the Oscars"). Thailand In Style concurs unreservedly and welcomes the Pimalai to its collection of boutique hotels and villas in Thailand; a destination for clients seeking an idyllic beach in Thailand with high levels of privacy and low levels of crowd for a honeymoon, wedding or pure relaxation.
