A Sample of Our Menu
Koh Samui didn't receive the name of a Tropical Paradise just because of
its beautiful beaches. The diversity of cooking styles and the quality of the
fare itself makes the island a veritable "gourmet's paradise" too.
Beach side dining
Our eating habits have changed over the years and we all try to eat smarter
and healthier in this day and age. With this in mind, we have tried to create
a menu using organic vegetables, organic flours, wheat free and gluten free
products and light oils where possible. A selection of vegetarian and spa options
are available through out the menu but if you wish for something different please
let us know and we will try our up-most to create a dish to suit your needs.
(V)- Vegetarian dishes, there are well balanced dishes fusing the myriad
of modern and local ingredients that are available to us here in Samui.
(S)- Spa cuisine, we have worked closely with Chef Wally, spa manager and
yoga teacher, to bring the Asian love for food and attention to well being together
in each of our spa dishes.

ROMANCE IN PARADISE - BUDDHIST THAI WEDDING
A traditional Thai-Buddhist ceremony is performed by three Buddhist monks.
First, the monks chant and then bless the bride and the groom by linking their
heads with joined loops of Sai Mongkon. The meaning of this is that the individual
identity of the two people is kept but destinies are linked. The Head-Monk pours
blessed water over the heads of the bride and the groom; the water is collected
in a bowl of ornately arranged flowers. The guests of the bride and the groom
also bless the couple on a water-blessing altar.
