Pimalai Earth & Social Care – Airport Transfer Project

Whenever you are planning to book a stay at Pimalai, we HIGHLYrecommend you to book a flight landing at Krabi airport, either in the morning or early afternoon, that will get you to meet our day time scheduled boat transfers and enjoy then a very scenic boat ride to the island of Lanta.There are far too much risks in running the boats after 6.00pm, and from that time onwards we will use the normal public ferries.

For the past couple of years, we have implemented a boat transfer schedule as following:

Depending on the season / Depending on weather & sea conditions

  • A) 10:30AM – Resort Boat departs from Pimalai boat base at Bahuahin Jetty on the mainland to bring arriving guests to Pimalai resort's front floating jetty or Amphur Kao Old Town Jetty on the East coast of Lanta island

  • B) 16:00PM – Resort Boat departs from Pimalai boat base at Bahuahin Jetty on the mainland to bring arriving guests to Pimalai resort's front floating jetty or Amphur Kao Old Town Jetty on the east coast of Lanta island

  • C) 7:00AM – Resort Boat departs from Pimalai resort's front floating jetty or Amphur Kao Old Town Jetty on the East coast of Lanta island to take departing guests to the Pimalai boat base at Bahuahin Jetty on the mainland

  • D) 12:00PM – Resort Boat departs from Pimalai resort's front floating jetty or Amphur Kao Old Town Jetty on the East coast of Lanta island to take departing guests to the Pimalai boat base at Bahuahin Jetty on the mainland

  • Krabi Airport to Pimalai is priced at THB. 1,900 net per person in each direction (joint boat & van transportation). In each case, the journey to or from Pimalai takes approximately 1hr 45mins up to 2hr 15mins depending on the season and the route selected by the resort to handle the transfer. Transfers INTO & OUT of the resort are subject to weather and sea conditions.


  • Flight from Bangkok - TG 241 - arriving Krabi Airport @ 9:20AM
  • Flight from Bangkok - TG 245 - arriving Krabi Airport @ 14:50PM
  • Departing flight from Krabi Airport for Bangkok - TG 242 - departing @ 10.10AM
  • Departing flight from Krabi Airport for Bangkok - TG 246 - departing @ 15.35PM

  • When arriving at our mainland boat base outside the above mentioned departing time A) & B), WE CAN ALWAYS get you to the resort by using the normal public ferries. Similarly if the sea conditions are too rough then we will use the public ferry system both for arriving or departing guests.

    Transportation to PIMALAI RESORT & SPA - by PIMALAI

    Currently, flight connections to Krabi International Airport are made through Suvarnabhumi International airport. Depending on the season, Thai Airways operates 3 to 5 daily flights (1hr 20min). Other no-frills airlines - such as ThaiAirAsia have also daily flights from Bangkok. Tiger Airways from Singapore lands three times a week at Krabi airport.

    At Krabi International Airport our representative will be pleased to greet you and arrange for your further transportation to the resort. The resort can also be reached by flying to Trang airport where Thai Airways flies daily from Bangkok.

    Transportation by road from Krabi, Phuket or Trang airports can be arranged by the resort; it consists of about 50 minutes drive from Krabi Airport, 3hr from Phuket Airport and 1hr 30min from Trang Airport. In each case this takes you to Banhuahin pier where, adjacent to the public pier, the resort maintains a private jetty and convenience station. Transportation from Banhuahin to Pimalai Resort depends on the season; comprehensive details are outlined below. Note that restrooms are available at our private base.

    Transportation all year around (We highly recommend you to book a flight that lands at Krabi airport in the morning or early afternoon). Transportation from Krabi airport is a journey of approximately 2 hours - or less - on mini van & speed boat operated by the resort, for its guests exclusively.


    Please note:
    During daytime, and on rare occasions, we may have to cancel the boat trip at any time if it is determined that there are adverse weather or sea conditions. We will then use the two public ferries to get you to the resort; the transfer may then take a 30 minutes additional travel time.

    Very unfortunately & essentially for safety reasons we are not able to operate the resort boat transportation during darkness - mainly from 6.00 pm to 6.00 am. For a very late arrival, you should know that WE CAN ALWAYS get you to the resort as we are able to rent the use of the public ferries even after normal ferry operating times (the ferries normally stops regular service at 10.00 pm.)

     

    Departing from the resort; we use the same route as on arrival, though we allocate extra travelling time to ensure that you are well on time to catch your flight home.
