Reopening to visitors on October 15 is Mu Ko Lanta National Park, a 134km² tropical wonderland that protects 16 islands in the Ko Lanta group on the coastlines of Krabi in southern Thailand, with lush jungles and abundance of marine life.
Pimalai Resort & Spa works with local authorities to protect and preserve the area, which is closed yearly for six months to allow its delicate ecology to be refreshed and replenished. To celebrate the park’s reopening, the resort is offering its guests the choice of two excursions.
The Koh Haa Snorkelling & Sunset adventure transports travellers to Koh Haa, aka Five Islands, where limestone islets enclosing an aquamarine lagoon, coral reef and white beach awaits – perfect for an afternoon of swimming and snorkelling. On the boat ride back, guests can enjoy canapés and cool drinks while watching 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 islands boasting powder-soft sandy beaches and warm, crystal clear waters. Following an hour of swimming and snorkelling, guests will be treated to an onboard lunch before embarking on a sightseeing cruise around Koh Rok.
Rates start from 6,652 baht (US$185) per night and include daily breakfast and a roundtrip Krabi Airport transfer for two. Book in advance to enjoy up to 30 per cent discount.
