Serene cuisine at SALA Phuket
I count myself, like many of you reading this article, as extremely fortunate and perhaps slightly privileged to be able to say I am a resident of Phuket.
Smoke and fire at The Nai Harn’s Prime restaurant
I thought I would begin by waxing lyrical about the view from Prime, the latest restaurant from The Nai Harn stable. However, Prime is open for dinner only, so if it’s a breathtaking sunset you are after, you may equally visit Cosmo or Hansha, the hotel’s other restaurants, where the view is arguably more impressive due to the added elevation.
Sowing the seeds of change: Seedlings restaurant at Laguna Phuket is authentic in every sense
As I make my way to Laguna Phuket and my venue for lunch, Seedlings restaurant, I reflect, like many of us, on getting older and how certain desires take on more importance whilst others dwindle into insignificance. As I reach a certain stage in life, I realise that the accumulation of possessions seems slightly pointless. I am now more concerned with an exercise regime and no longer yearn for a regular gourmet three-star Michelin experience.
Tre at Banyan Tree: Chef Kreaton elevates and innovates with local produce
Banyan Tree, located in Laguna, is a truly spectacular resort with several highly- rated restaurants, beach frontage, and surrounding saltwater lakes. Tre, its flagship restaurant, will probably be less known to you and tonight, it’s my destination for dinner.
Hilltop at the Hyatt: Romantic dining with views at the Sunset Grill
Arriving at the Hyatt Regency in Kamala, I make my way into the spacious lobby and on requesting directions to the Sunset Grill, am advised that buggy transport will arrive shortly.
DeDos – Another decade of dining
My daily routine begins with sinking into my favourite armchair, macchiato conveniently at my side, reconnecting to the world of online news, social media and print. Yes, to this day I still experience a sense of comforting familiarity when turning the pages of newsprint between my thumb and forefinger.
Sam’s Steaks & Grill @ Holiday Inn Resort
Sam’s Steaks and Grill is located in the Holiday Inn Resort, Phuket. As a former globetrotting corporate employee of Intercontinental Hotels Group, the parent company of the Holiday Inn brand, I have almost certainly stayed in more Holiday Inns than most and I am struggling to recall another that offers a premium steakhouse. Sam’s Steaks and Grill is probably unique.
PRU @ Trisara wins Phuket’s first Michelin star
At the glitzy Park Hyatt in Bangkok, the culinary cognoscenti gathered for the gastronomic event of the year; the launch of the 2019 Michelin Guide to Bangkok, Phuket and Phang-Nga.
La Trattoria at Dusit Thani Laguna relaunched
’Mamma Mia” literally translated means ‘my mother’, however in Italian slang, it is an expression of exclamation and joy. As I am seated in the recently refurbished La Trattoria, I suspect I am about to enjoy truly authentic Italian cooking.
Sashimi at sunset - Hansha @ The Nai Harn
As I meander along the country lanes through Nai Harn I am reminded on this rather drizzly evening of my homeland, and the spectacular landscape that is the Mull of Kintyre. Arriving at The Nai Harn is an experience in itself; this historic lodging has been refurbished and sympathetically restored to its rightful place as a Phuket icon. Its heritage carefully preserved as a reminder of the golden age of hospitality, whilst also brought up-to-date.
