This is the first time I have submitted a review on anywhere we have stayed. We had two nights in a beach side villa to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We had been to Kim's about 23 years before. Our stay was just fantastic with a wonderful bottle of sparking wine in our villa to gret us. All the staff were... More

Kim's is the ultimate treat for a special getaway with a loved one. Glorious accommodation, amazing food and friendly but unobtrusive staff. This time we stayed in a treetop bungalow, having stayed in a garden spa villa the first time, and we weren't disappointed. Big deck with a spa looking over the treeline, lovely furnishings (especially the comfy bed) and... More

We stayed in a Beachfront Bungalow and would highly recommend it as the view was spectacular. It was wonderful being able to step straight out of your room onto the beach and listen to the waves at night. The rooms were very comfortable. The bungalows are well decorated with lovely timber floors, classic rattan furniture and beautiful Persian rugs. The... More

Very attentive and welcoming staff . Our spa bungalow could only be faulted by the fact we were only staying 1 night . The buffet meals haven't changed a lot since my last visit 40 years ago ( when children were allowed ) but still fresh , plentiful and delicious . It's a great location with Towoon Bay Beach only...

We had a special memory of Kim's, as we got engaged there 20 years prior. So we were nervous if it still met our well traveled palate after so many years. We spend a lovely 3 anniversary days there.

We have been meaning for years to visit Kim's having heard so much about it from friends. We could only stay one night as we had to visit family the next night. As we had to leave early the next day, they recommended we have lunch on our arrival, dinner, breakfast then depart. Perfect. We arrived on a gorgeous day,... More

We spent 2 nights at Kims and loved it. Great food, fabulous accommodation, all evocative of a style of hospitality that has been proven to succeed over time. The weather was poor but it didn't matter at all. Well done Kim's. We'll be back!
