We stayed at the Kimpton Kitalay and frequented the poolside bar on the daily. The entire staff were very friendly and attentive - they often gave great recommendations on activities to do on and off resort. The food was also delicious, we highly recommend the chicken wings and arrabiata rigatoni. We wanted to specifically call out several staff members at Shades Ocean Lounge and Bar: Aof, Eye, Aod, Chai and Saw. These staff members made us feel super welcome. Thank you for making our stay incredibly memorable!

I came to the beach of the hotel to bask in the sun and ordered a lot of food. Friends who wanted to play motorboats, we asked the service staff Aof to help me look at the food. When I came back, Aof was very enthusiastic and gave us a new coconut and kept asking us if we needed it. what's really great

The food was amazing, I ordered a Fried Squid Taco and the squid is fresh along with the sauce and vegetable which is so refreshing for the sunny afternoon. They also come with many selections of drinks, which I also ordered Chi Chi. It was so refreshing. The staffs were so friendly and attentive. Their services are top tier.

We came to hang out by the pool (not staying at the hotel). They charged us 2000 THB p.p., which we thought was too expensive. Mister Kau was really helpful and even asked the manager if he coule give us a discount, which was not possible. He then prepared a seat for us near the bar which was free to stay. He was really helpful and even provided towels. Its a nice place although very overpriced (which also applies to the drinks and food menu).

Such a beautiful hotel, great pool, great view, great weather!! Service was above and beyond! Aof looked after us by the pool for snacks and cocktails, we received them so quickly and efficiently. He always made sure we had water and cool towels as the weather was warm. He was also very funny and so nice! Guest services for our stay were outstanding, in particular Palm. She would help us instantly with any request or question small or large. Kimpton Kindalay will definitely be an annual holiday destination for us! Also to note the food at both restaurants plus breakfast were incredible. We did not leave the hotel because everything we wanted, needed and more was available!

We had a great time at shades! Best service we've had on the island so far. Aof, Chai, Jimmy and Eye provided impeccable service, making delicious cocktails and asking If we wanted our glasses refilled before we even realized they were empty. Really fantastic place to visit, friendly and great team and delicious and fresh food.

The entire resort is incredible, with the nicest people always greeting you with a smile. One of the highlights was Shades, especially our gracious bartender, Aof. He went above and beyond for us during our pool time making the trip that much more special. Can’t wait to come back!—

We have an incredible experience at Hotel Beach Bar during our honeymoon trip. The environment was delightful, boasting a perfect blend of tranquility and style. The service was nothing short of amazing, and a special shout-out to khun Aof for his delicate attention that made our experience truly memorable. Highly recommend this gem for a romantic getaway!

If you are looking to taking a break from the amazing sun and sea of Chong Mae beach, head to the Kimpton pool bar. The warm and friendly staff at the Shades will make sure you are well taken care of; Ood makes amazing drinks - highly recommend coconut crush with Malibu ! and Aaf and Saw will go extra mile to make sure those who visit feel welcome.

The service was good at the best location! The staff, AOF, also brought me a wet towel, served me with peanuts, and the customer service was also the best! I'll definitely come to the Kimpton Hotel again! Thank you very much!

Shades is a really great bar managed by great, welcoming and smiling people. The whole service team are a credit to the hotel. They truly make the stay at the hotel one to remember. Drinks are great, food is great but above all the staff are absolutely amazing. Always smiling, always ready to please, always welcoming and nothing is too much to ask.Jimmy is a fantastic bar supervisor and he is a role model for the whole team as they equally aim to provide the service he provides. I can't thank them enough for all the welcoming salutations, the humour and service and the magic they provide in ensuring our stay was very special every minute of the day. They are central to the reason I will return to the hotel. 5 Star Team and 5 Star Service. Thank you

I had a great experience at the Kimpton and the Shades Ocean Lounge. Aod, Ink, & Chai we’re awesome. Spent the day at the bar having drinks, learning Thai, and learning about their lives. These 3 will be the reason for my return. I enjoyed the hospitality and fantastic drinks. They deserve some recognition for their superior service and great customer service skills.
