BEACH RESTAURANT BUZZES

Lively Chaweng Beach has seen a new fabulous

addition to its already impressive line-up with the Tent

Restaurant at Sala Chaweng. The Tent has become one

of Chaweng’s most coveted beachfront dining spot

powdery white sand. In addition to the stunning beach

setting, the Tent also boasts a perfectly manicured

cocktails and wine. With an impressive selection of

imported gin and wine, guests from around the island

A MOVIE UNDER THE STARS

A sky full of stars, plush and lush beach cushions, artisan food and drinks,

and your favourite film on the big screen. To many people this may sound

like a dream evening. W Hotel of Koh Samui makes dreams come true with

their weekly Monday beach cinema nights starting at 8pm. Each week guests

or non-guests can attend this relaxed and picturesque evening full of great

food and great films. Guests are invited to watch the films at no cost but are

required to purchase an item from the W’s beach menu. Laying back in the

comfort of 5-star seating on a white sand beach, with a beautiful backdrop of

palm trees, stars, and the sprawling sea, is a perfect way to spend a Monday

evening. Seating is limited, so booking in advance is recommended and can

be done by calling the W Hotel directly. wkohsamui.com, +66 (0) 77 915 999

SUNDAY BRUNCH & YOGA

When we fantasise about a

Sunday brunch on a beautiful

island:an unending buffet,

bottles of champagne and a DJ

spinning tunes come to mind.

For those who prefer to start

their day off with wellness as

their top priority, Wide Tribe

Superfood Café & Juice Bar

offers a special twist on the

typical Sunday. At Wild Tribe’s

Sunday Yoga Brunch, you

won’t find unending bottles

of champagne or every kind of

indulgence. What you will find is

a peaceful and gentle yoga class

followed by a healthy, organic

and nourishing meal, all for only

590 Baht. Located at the end

of Lamai Beach road, Wild Tribe

is perfectly positioned in busy

Lamai but also has the beach

right at its steps. Yoga Brunch

is held every Sunday and starts

at 10.30am, wildtribecafe.com,

SPOTLIGHT

An Oyster Bar to Remember

On the corner opposite of Karma

Sutra Bar Et Kitchen sits Art of

Life Restaurant. Known for fresh

oysters and seafood served in an

industrial décor setting, Art of

Life is making a name for itself

as one of the most coveted seats

in Fisherman’s Village. As Samui’s

first true oyster bar, Art of Life

has set the standard extremely

high. At the helm of the

restaurant is Christophe Scali,

a well-known French chef who

sources 85% of his products

from the esteemed Rungis

market in France. All seafood

is delivered fresh twice a week

or purchased daily from local

fishermen on Samui. A true

French experience can be had

at Art of Life, though the

restaurant can still cater to

the Thai palate and offer

some local fare. Diners

are are encouraged to

book on a Friday night.
