Rediscover the Beauty of Mu Ko Lanta National Park

Pimalai invites responsible explorers to rediscover Mu Ko Lanta National Park – Southern Thailand’s Tropical Paradise as it will reopen to visitors on 15 October. 

Mu Ko Lanta National Park is a breath-taking natural paradise – 134 square kilometres of turquoise waters, unspoiled islands, hidden coves and captivating coastlines in southern Thailand’s Krabi province, blessed with an abundance of flora and fauna, including lush jungles and vibrant marine life. Every year, this tropical wonderland is closed for six months to allow its delicate ecology to be refreshed and replenished. Pimalai Resort & Spa, the five-star sanctuary on Koh Lanta, fully supports the closure and works with local authorities to protect and preserve the area. On 15 October 2022, Mu Ko Lanta National Park will reopen to visitors following its annual restoration and Pimalai’s responsible, experience-seeking clientele will be among the first to witness it! To celebrate this important occasion, the property has relaunched immersive, small-scale excursions to two of the region’s most idyllic islands: Koh Haa and Koh Rok.

The Koh Haa Snorkelling & Sunset adventure transports travellers to Koh Haa (“Five Islands”), a captivating collection of limestone islets that enclose a dazzling aquamarine lagoon, a technicolour coral reef and a pure white beach. This provides the perfect spot for an afternoon of swimming and snorkelling. The leisurely boat ride back to Pimalai will be enhanced with onboard canapés and cool drinks, including wine and beer, as the sun sets over the Andaman Sea. 

The Fabulous Koh Rok tour is a scenic one-hour boat trip to Koh Rok, a pair of paradise islands lined with powder-soft sandy beaches and lapped by warm, crystal clear waters. Following an hour of swimming and snorkelling, guests will be treated to a delicious onboard lunch before embarking on a sightseeing cruise around Koh Rok, with even more opportunities to plunge into the sparkling sea and uncover the enthralling underwater world.

Pimalai’s fleet of seven boats are all skippered by professional captains who have a deep knowledge of the local area, to ensures that all visitors enjoy adventures that lives long in the memory, in harmony with the environment.

With just 121 stylish rooms, spacious suites and spectacular villas, all nestled in 100 acres of nature and cascading down to a 900-metre-long soft sandy beach, Pimalai is a haven of tranquility. When guests are not discovering the wonders of Mu Ko Lanta National Park, they can take part in a wide range of low-impact activities such as non-motorised water sports, Thai cooking classes, muay Thai boxing lessons, yoga sessions, soothing treatments at award-winning Pimalai Spa, and trekking along jungle trails. This heavenly hideaway also features a kids’ club, world-class restaurants, a Sports Centre with tennis, badminton and basketball courts, a running track, cycling trails, and two infinity pools that appear suspended in the forest canopy, overlooking the ocean.
