Samui Wining & Dining
A Special Beach Dining Experience

Dining by the the sea - at The Sea !

 

12-13It’s funny living on an island and seeing signs for the sea. Why would they need signs when the sea is all around? Look a bit closer and you’ll notice it is written ‘The Sea’.

      Yes, in Bang Po on a quiet stretch of white sandy beach with picturesque views of Koh Pha-Ngan, lies the boutique resort The Sea Samui. Consisting of 25 villas and suites nestled between lush tropical plants, right on the beach. Each villa has been specifically designed to feel like a home away from home, and the friendly staff will ensure that guests are comfortable throughout their stay.

      The 20 metre long beachside pool is surrounded by loungers and tables for you to make the most of Thailand’s sunshine. If it gets too hot, simply sink into the pool and order an iced-cold drink or an exotic cocktail from their poolside bar, Breeze. Open daily from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, they can conjure up a whole host of delightful holiday drinks or if you prefer something simpler, enjoy a glass of wine or beer or even a mocktail. They have music playing at a comfortable level because this spot is all about relaxing not partying.

      It’s all well and good drinking by the pool, you might say, but what if I get hungry? Fair enough, but perhaps we need to take a step back and talk about what you had for breakfast this morning …

      Opening as early as 7:00 am, Café Lebay offers a buffet breakfast or an a la carte menu with Western and Thai dishes. A great way to start your day. If you are travelling back home and are leaving too early for breakfast, for your convenience they offer a breakfast box to take on your journey so there is no need to go without the most important meal of the day. Just make sure you ask at reception the day before.

       The dish’s decoration deserves a special mention here. A chunky stick of galangal has been used to create a tree made with chillies and garlic and topped with flowers carved out of turnips. The craftsmanship is incredible.

      Café Lebay is a modern style air-conditioned restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers a great selection of international cuisine with steak, ribs, lamb, duck and seafood all featuring. The restaurant is a pleasant sight being the first thing you see when you arrive at the resort. The contrasting white walls and dark wood give the area a smart, upmarket feel and the black slate wall creates a striking entrance feature.

         Now, don’t be put off that there isn’t a restaurant here at the pool. Café Lebay is more than able to take orders from the pool area. And since it’s such a short distance between the two, your meal can be with you before you’re even halfway through your cocktail. Feel free to eat while relaxing on your sun lounger or sit at one of the many tables that have been laid out around the pool or on the beach. If you fancy something a little different, opt for the light lunch served in picnic baskets for a unique outdoor dining experience.

         Maybe you want to pop that ‘special question” or celebrate a special anniversary. A romantic beach dinner can be arranged for you amidst candles and lanterns. Lie back and enjoy a ‘Kantoke’ style dinner - a selection of Thai dishes served on a small pedestal tray. You will be treated to two glasses of complimentary sparkling wine and a unique, personalised romantic beach set up.

         Barbecues at The Sea are very popular and you have a choice of on the beach, beside the pool or outside your villa. Every Saturday is the ‘Beach BBQ Buffet’ which runs from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Choose from a selection of fresh seafood such as king prawns, rock lobster, squid, blue crabs, chicken, pork and vegetables. You could even combine the two - barbecue and romantic dinner!

         The Sea provides you with so many different opportunities to experience your beach dining with a special touch. A nice quiet beach, someone special, great food and the Gulf of Thailand - sounds like a perfect evening.
