Eat Your Fill
SIAM SUPPER CLUB
One of my favourite local spots is the Siam Supper Club. The wonderful owner, Sean, often keeps us entertained with his fabulous stories. I love enjoying glass of wine while taking in the friendly ambiance — this place ticks all the boxes for me. I feel very at home here!
For a splurge I highly recommend cocktails and tapas at Trisara. It is a stunning resort and is always a special experience. Looking out to sea and watching the sunset, it doesn’t get much better than this. They also have the best Sunday brunch on the island in my books.
Taste is a wonderful restaurant on Surin Beach, owned by a delightful couple who really care about your dinning experience. The chef Martin is always in the kitchen doing what he does best and Jade out front makes sure everyone is happy. The menu offers delicious starters and mains. We always walk away with a smile on our faces. Taste is also family friendly.
THE REGGAE BAR
Another favourite spot out for my family is the Reggae Bar on Layan Beach. The owner is so kind and extremely easy going.
Kids can enjoy paddle boards, while parents enjoy drinks and wiggling their feet in the sand.
Shop Your Heart Out
Surin is a also great area for a spot of shopping. First (of course!) you have my shop Island Bliss for a true boho chic experience. You’ll find island fashion, elegant jewelry, fashionable home decor and more!
Down the road a little you have Surin Plaza, with the very popular Lola and its beautiful kaftans. Next door you’ll find Ginger for fun, colourful and fabulous kids accessories, as well as gorgeous bags and cushions. You’ll find divine homewars at Lamont, but start saving you pennies! And finally head upstairs to Soul of Asia for unique pieces of art.
