IHG Hotels & Resorts has confirmed a second Kimpton hotel in Thailand, with the new property set to rise in Koh Samui later this year.
The 138-key Kimpton Koh Samui on Choengmon Beach will feature the brand’s signature playfulness, immersive guest experiences and innovative approach to restaurants and bars. Accommodation options materialise in the form of suites and villas, with pool villas granting unique direct access to the beach.
Four distinctive restaurants and bars as well as a pool, spa, fitness centre, Kids Club and a 124m2 multi-purpose meetings and events space are in the plan.
Serena Lim, vice president, development, South East Asia and Korea, 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.
“The strength of IHG’s brand portfolio has led to some exciting growth opportunities here in Thailand and this signing is a great example of that. There’s an appetite from owners to join the IHG family of brands and benefit from the power of our enterprise, as the strength and resilience of our brands come to the fore in the current environment.”
The latest signing reflects IHG’s continued expansion of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in Asia since its debut in October 2020. There are now Kimpton hotels in Taipei, Bangkok and Tokyo, and more properties are lined up for Bali, Suzhou, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Nanjing, Sanya and Kuala Lumpur.
