Everyone has the desire to leave their life behind from time to time and get away from it all. At Kimpton Kitalay, we get it. We’ve designed our surroundings to let you appreciate the natural beauty of Thailand, forget about the stress you left behind and enjoy the days you spend with us.
People take vacations for different reasons. Some use it as a chance to get work done away from the office, whilst others use it as an opportunity for a digital detox, some like to spend time with loved ones, while others enjoy solo retreats. Whatever your reason, the truth is that taking time off from your regular life can be incredibly therapeutic. It can lower your blood pressure and improve your mood and overall outlook on life. It’s even been proven by science. Basking in the sun raises your serotonin level, and a high level of serotonin reduces symptoms of depression. So, lying beside a pool surrounded by tropical flowers and the traditional beauty of Thai art and design while on vacation is actually good for you!
Surround Yourself with Thai Beauty
The team at Kimpton Kitalay works hard to create a serene environment for you to relax in, drawing on the tropical charm of the island and the unrivalled beauty of Thai culture.
The attention we devote to the rooms, restaurants and general ambiance at The Kimpton is all designed to transport you to another level of relaxation as you enjoy a much-needed break.
Everything in Thai design is based on the form of the lotus flower. From the rooflines of traditional buildings to the textile design in a piece of silk-woven cloth. As soon as you enter the resort you’ll be captivated this Thai style and merging of the exterior and the interior. The Thai aesthetic embodies a love of the outdoors that’s reflected in their art, architecture, and textiles, just as it is in our resort.
Explore Our Resort
Once you begin to notice and appreciate the simple and elegant beauty of the Thai design aesthetic, you’ll see it everywhere at The Kimpton. This aesthetic will lighten your mood and open your eyes, along with the rest of your senses, to all the delightful amenities that go along with our slower pace of life.
Start your day by taking a leisurely bike ride around the property past the many swimming pools and weathered, tropical-wood buildings and along the beach. Catch the aroma from the Lanai Bar & Lounge and stop in to sample the latest delicious creations from the nearby HOM Baking Company, washed down with a fresh cup of coffee.
Later, meet up with friends or family and set out on a photographic exploration of Koh Samui by bicycle. When you get back, the kids can head off to play at Junio, the kid’s club. Now it’s time for an utterly unforgettable Thai seafood lunch at the FishHouse Restaurant & Bar. Gaze out at the ocean horizon as you dine on the chef’s delicious creations. Then it’s time for a swim and a nap beside the pool while the gentle breeze provides relief to the afternoon heat.
As evening draws in, it’s time to take your furry friend for a walk along the beach to enjoy one of Samui’s famous sunsets. Next up, it’s the Kimpton Social Hour; a chance for a cocktail and catch up with friends new and old. After another amazing dinner at the FishHouse, retire to your room, and take time to reflect on another perfect day in paradise.
