Kimpton Kitalay Samui

Feel the Samui Flow at this Seafront Resort

An Island Resort with Breezy Beachside Appeal

Teasing sparkling sea views over Choeng Mon Beach, Kimpton Kitalay Samui channels the island’s tropical charm with 138 rooms, suites and villas. In this village-like island enclave, we invite you to embrace the spirit of a community inspired by the sea.

Feel revitalized by five bold and inventive restaurants and bars, a spa influenced by Thai wellness with a welcomed modern twist, and our relaxing, palm-shaded pools. Explore the island on a fat-tire bicycle, and listen to island lore in the Lanai Coves. After all, Kita means ‘song’ in Thai, and lay is a reference to the seafaring Chao Lay people of Thailand. Together, Kitalay conveys the meaning of ‘the song of the Lay people’ – a tribute to the community spirit native to the milieu.

It is this easy balance of nonchalance and detail that we call island living, the Kimpton Kitalay Samui way.

Koh Samui’s Only Village-style Oceanfront Resort

After a day of sunning, swimming, or strolling the island, retreat to our village-style resort. A charming landscape dotted with sparkling pools, inventive food and drink, exhilarating activities and superb service. Each of our 138 rooms, suites, and villas invite the outdoors in with designs that flow, a perfect blend of sensory contrasts drawing guests a little further into a tropical dream. Ease into our enchanting fusion of contemporary design and traditional accents, Kimpton Kitalay Samui is refined by our unique eye for texture and detail, from oversized bathtubs surrounded by intriguing Thai tiles to seemingly endless water views that merge with its stunning, unbroken shoreline. An elegant whimsy arrives through handcrafted, Thai-accented styling, where a discreetly unassuming landscape unfurls into understated beauty. All of this is nestled beside an unspoiled beach that can be seen from nearly all parts of the resort as well as easy access to our unparalleled pools. Kimpton Kitalay Samui offers the perfect base in Koh Samui, with select spots for sunsets, storytelling, s’mores – and, of course, a deep, restful sleep.

Beachside Villas in the tropical paradise of Koh Samui

Our 21 stunning oceanfront villas offer direct and private access to our unspoiled stretch of sand on Choeng Mon Beach. Curl up with a good book on daybeds and loungers beside your private pool, or slip into a relaxing bath in deep, custom tubs surrounded by rustic Thai tiles.

Winding the Sands of Time

We couldn’t agree more with the saying, ‘A picture speaks a thousand words. Descriptions like ‘crashing waves’ and ‘delightfully fresh seafood’ are all well and good – but it’s the photographs that make mouths water and toes curl for the fine sand of our beach. Here, we have collected a selection of images that truly portray the Kimpton Kitalay Samui experience.
