IHG Hotels & Resorts has announced the expansion of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants with the signing of Kimpton Koh Samui, the second Kimpton hotel in Thailand following the brand’s debut in October 2020.
The 138-key luxury boutique beachfront property on Choengmon Beach will open later this year where guests will enjoy Kimpton’s signature heartfelt service and locally-inspired design features. A short drive to Chaweng Beach, Fisherman’s Village walking street and Koh Samui International Airport, domestic and international travellers alike will benefit from its convenient location and proximity to major tourist attractions.
Tranquility and privacy will be easy to find at Kimpton Koh Samui as it will offer stunning luxury pool villas with unique direct access to the beach. Two-thirds of the guest accommodation will be suites or villas and the vast majority of the hotel inventory offering spectacular views over the Gulf of Thailand.
Capturing the Kimpton brand’s playful and sophisticated design, innovative approach to restaurants and bars, and immersive guest experiences that foster genuine human connections, this luxury boutique hotel will infuse local culture, textures and colours with every touchpoint of the guest experience and speak to the location’s story for an authentic and meaningful stay. It will feature four distinctive restaurants and bars as well as a pool, spa, fitness centre, Kids Club and a 124 sqm multi-purpose meetings and events space. With thoughtful service, perks and amenities, guests and their pets can expect a warm welcome and memorable stay.
Serena Lim, vice president of development in South East Asia and Korea at IHG said: “We are excited to continue our long-standing partnership with NYE Estate whom we share a common vision of elevating and growing the hospitality sector in Thailand, as well as new partners Multiply Partners and Capstone Asset to bring Kimpton’s heartfelt approach to hospitality to Koh Samui as we continue to expand the brand across the region as well as globally.”
