Travellers can contribute to the Guestbook to win one of four 10-night ‘Ultimate Kimpton Experiences’
Singapore, 2022-Feb-17 — /Travel PR News/ — Today (14 February 2022), when human connections matter more than ever, IHG Hotels & Resorts’ boutique luxury brand, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants launches the Kimpton Digital Guestbook in Australia, South East Asia and Korea – breathing new life into the art of storytelling. The platform sparks creative expression through visuals and video, inviting travellers to share and exchange stories all bound together by the love of connection. For a limited time, travellers can also win one of four ‘Ultimate Kimpton Experiences’ to reconnect in real time with unforgettable 10-night stays including Kimpton’s signature perks.
The Kimpton legacy is built on the ethos of delivering heartfelt human connections, believing that these connections make people’s lives better and that commonalities and connections exist between all people. And while international travel may be on hold for some right now, others are returning to travel, or getting ready to pick up their suitcases and seek out new destinations once again. The Digital Guestbook encapsulates this community of stories and allows people to uncover what cherished moments look like, what connections means to one another now, or simply a promise for the future ahead.
The collection launches with Kimpton stories from guest Creators – a selection of artists, travellers, creators and explorers – from Sydney to South Korea. With colourful tales of togetherness from across the globe, the Kimpton Creators’ stories are available in the Guestbook and include Singapore’s DJ and producer, MYRNE and experimental illustrator, Andre Wee; Australia’s entrepreneur, Alyce Tran fashion and lifestyle influencer, Jasmin Howell photographer, Jarrad Seng and model and presenter, Christian Wilkins and in South Korea, artist Novo and fashion illustrator, Jaesuk Kim share their stories.
To celebrate brand new Kimpton hotels around the world and help create new human connection stories, the brand is giving away ‘Ultimate Kimpton Experiences’ to four lucky winners: an unforgettable 10-night adventure at participating Kimpton hotels in Sydney, Bali, Bangkok, Koh Samui or Paris, including a tailored itinerary* and all the signature Kimpton perks. From 14 February to 13 March 2022, participants are invited to share about their most cherished heartfelt human connection moment on Instagram with the hashtag #KimptonStories.
Exciting new Kimpton hotels – from dreamy resorts to heritage icons
Since the brand was created by Bill Kimpton in San Francisco in 1981, Kimpton has created a hotel culture that stripped the barrier between guest and staff, creating a personable, thoughtful and sociable vibe that is well-loved by guests. Today, Kimpton’s unique brand of service and style can be found in over 75 hotels across the world.
2022 continues to be a year of exciting growth for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, with seven properties set to open in new city and resort locations. Today, 14 February, marks the Australian debut of the brand with Kimpton Margot Sydney: a magnificent heritage-listed Art Deco hotel offering guests a treasure-trove of history, art, pop-up events and even an underground cellar. In January 2022, Kimpton Kitalay Samui opened as Thailand’s first Kimpton resort in Koh Samui, complete with its breezy beachside appeal, breath-taking beauty and village-living inspired by the Samui way of life.
In 2020, the first Kimpton hotel opened in South East Asia with the edgy Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok in the creative district of Langsuan. An insider’s pass to the City of Angels, the 362-room hotel including 131 serviced residences, emulates the vibrant pulse of the city, contrasted with the uplifting greenery inspired by the adjacent Lumpini Park. Kimpton St Honore Paris opened its Art Nouveau doors in August 2021 as the brand’s debut in France, a stunning transformation of the former 1900s “Samaritaine de Luxe” department store with 149 guestrooms in the Opera district. Looking ahead, the all-villa boutique luxury resort, Kimpton Naranta Bali will open as the perfect gateway to the Island of the Gods with an unforgettable take on barefoot luxury.
