Koh Lanta is by far one of the best all-rounders among Thailand’s islands. The most visited of several (52#) little islands, Koh Lanta is an hour’s boatride from Krabi. A friendly and relaxing destination, its sunny coral lined beaches on the western shores are clean, flat and soft; while there are some beach spots where you may not even see another soul! Enjoy stretches of mangrove, robust hills, nature reserves like Koh Lanta Marine National Park with amazing beaches, caves and camp sites. Accommodations here suit all pockets…from spare to super-swanky! Suited for everyone, Koh Lanta runs the gamut of activities like world-class diving, mangrove forest kayaking, beach bar fun, savoring seafood delights with locals, etc.
Tucked away in a lush tropical forest on the tiny island of Koh Lanta, Krabi (1hr by boat from the mainland), the luxurious Pimalai Resort and Spa is a secluded paradise facing blue waters of the Andaman Sea.
