Enjoy a summer break at Kimpton Kitalay Samui.


From the moment you arrive and step inside Kimpton Kitalay Samui you’ll be immersed in the exotic ambience of Thailand’s ‘Coconut Island’. A refreshing cold towel scented with sea salt and patchouli and a revitalising welcome drink, ‘Where’s the Coconut’ – a blissful blend of local coconut water, palm sugar juice and lime soda – will revive your senses after a long journey and set you up for an amazing vacation.


Then, simply say the ‘secret’ summer social password at check-in and you’ll instantly receive an exclusive surprise. (Hint: you may find the ‘not-so-secret social passwordhere.)


Every morning throughout summer, you can start your day in style with a special edition of the Kimpton Kickstart concept. Elevating the regular morning selection of complimentary coffee tea and snacks, Kimpton Kitalay Samui will present revitalising drinks such as cold brew coffee and infused water, and light summertime bites like freshly baked blueberry & ginger muffins and golden raisin & rosemary scones with mixed berry jam. A great way to start any day of fun in the sun.
