Following the recent closure of Koh Lanta island in Thailand’s Krabi province, Pimalai Resort & Spa will be using this downtime to renovate 20 of its hillside ocean-view villas.

As well, the 20-year-old resort is also conceptualising the first wedding chapel on the island, which will be designed by Habita, which has previously taken on projects for Six Senses and Soneva.

To keep team morale up during this temporary closure, the resort is also offering staff training for professional development, such as regular English classes, folk-design tutorials, and music lessons.

In addition, a full deep-cleaning and maintenance programme is in progress across all 48ha of the resort including accommodation, public areas, restaurants, spa and gardens. Alternative energy programmes, composting and organic growing are all in full swing.

Meanwhile, to ensure they stay top of mind with guests, Pimalai is offering free online yoga classes three to four times a week.
