Santiburi Samui Beach Resort commands centre stage on a magnificent stretch of Maenam Beach, with endless idyllic sand in either direction. It was one of the first top class resorts to establish itself on Samui. And after 25 years, it continues to delight the discerning guest who appreciates a fine blend of beauty and sophistication amidst an ambiance of romantic seclusion. The accommodation and the restaurant facilities are equally exquisite, and everyone, not only hotel guests, are welcome to enjoy the mystique and culinary delights of The Beach House restaurant.
The Beach House is not merely a culinary experience; it has also become a hotbed of themed night festivities. At the recent New Year’s Eve gala and Russian Orthodox Christmas celebration, guests were thrilled by a fire show, traditional dance and other dynamic, eclectic performances. The Carnival de Samui on the 10th of February, Valentine’s Day on the 14th, Chinese New Year on the 16th, International Women’s Day (March 8th), St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) and Easter are but a few of the spectacular evenings and events being planned. Romance, costumes, a carnival, an egg hunt, a Russian dance troupe, poolside fireworks, Chinese acrobats, dancing dragons and a lion show … well, that’s just some of what The Beach House has in store, as colour, energy, culture, and fun will surely abound. Experience it all while savouring a buffet of delectable Chinese fare, oysters, chilli and chocolate ‘aphrodisiacs’ for the romantic or any of the countless other special culinary delights The Beach House will have on the menu.
The events are vibrant, creatively planned and the food presentation is impeccable. The entertainment is provocative and memorable. Place your order, enjoy the live cooking stations and let the friendly, attentive staff ensure that your dining and sensory experience is more than you could have ever imagined.
Don’t despair if you cannot make one of the upcoming themed nights. Two or three a month is about the norm. You can always enjoy a lunch or dinner at The Beach House which highlights surf & turf variations as its culinary signature. Even on an ordinary day (though there really is nothing ordinary about The Beach House) it’s just a great laid-back setting. You can opt to sit indoors in the simply-styled yet chic dining room, sit on the terrace or take off your shoes and eat with your feet in the sand. Wherever you choose, you’ll see and hear the waves and feel the sea breeze on your face.
Swiss Chef Adrian Hauenstein has worldwide experience, and is at the helm to ensure your culinary satisfaction. You can savour a variety of treats from the impressive à la carte menu while enjoying the magical seascape vista of nearby Koh Pha-Ngan. There’s a range of fare from delectable shared platters, imported meats, locally-caught seafood to a medley of unbeatable dishes for vegetarians. There are traditional favourites and few surprising, creative twists. The crab cake with sweetcorn appears as an entire crab served up with legs, claws and all, but you’ll be surprised to see that it’s composed entirely of crab meat that’s been cleverly presented to resemble the original crab. And if you’re a film buff, you should definitely not miss out on Adrian’s ‘Pixar-Style Inspired Ratatouille’. It definitely lives up to the film that inspired it.
The Beach House effortlessly blends haute dining experiences with stunningly memorable events. It is a destination for one-off evenings that is definitely worth a detour.
