Boasting 134 sq km of stunning waters, untouched islands, marine life, coastlines in southern Thailand’s Krabi province, as well as lush jungles blessed with flora and fauna, Mu Ko Lanta National Park is closed for half the year so that its delicate ecology can rejuvenate.
The five-star sanctuary on this incredible space, Pimalai Resort & Spa, supports this closure and even goes the extra mile by working with local experts and authorities to preserve the different species in Mu Ko Lanta.
“At Pimalai, we feel a deep connection with Mu Ko Lanta National Park — and a deep responsibility to preserve it for future generations,” says Pimalai’s owner representative, Charintip Tiyaphorn.
“That’s why we conduct regular coastal cleaning activities, do not allow motorised water sports and permit only small-scale, eco-sensitive excursions in the area. We are delighted to invite our conscientious guests to explore this pristine paradise when it reopens this October. Following five months of replenishing rains and no human interference, this idyllic area will look more breathtaking than ever.”
To celebrate its reopening to visitors on Oct 15, Pimalai Resort & Spa has launched immersive excursions on two islands, Koh Haa and Koh Rok. At the former, guests can experience the Koh Haa Snorkelling & Sunset adventure, which includes exploring limestone islets that enclose an aquamarine lagoon, witnessing colourful coral reefs, and lounging on a white sandy beach. This experience also features a boat ride back to Pimalai with views of the sunset, made luxurious with canapés and drinks.
The Koh Rok tour includes a one-hour boat trip that takes guests to two stunning islands with soft sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. Swimming and snorkelling are on the schedule, as well as lunch on board and a sightseeing cruise around Koh Rok.
