Breakfast at the Oriental Spoon Grill & Bar is a
western-style buffet - patisserie, fruit, Bircher muesli, fresh
juices and cold cuts - with hot food cooked to order by a brigade
of pleasantly chatty chefs. If you’re there on a Sunday, save
yourself for the incredibly popular brunch, which features a
huge range of fresh seafood. Join Phuket’s ex-pat business
community and regular visitors to graze on smoked salmon, roasts,
cheeses and seafood. Finish off with berries, chocolate fondue and
In the evening, the restaurant morphs into a sophisticated, back-lit eatery serving imported seafood (such as Sydney rock oysters) alongside indigenous black and blue crab, tiger prawns and white snapper. You’ll also find some beef and chicken dishes on the Asian-inspired menu. If you need to rest your taste buds, resort to familiar pasta and pizza options.
The pool bar is open throughout the day and features a menu of international and Thai lunches and light snacks which are served up by super-friendly staff. If you're into your wine then you're in luck, as the Wine Room has over 200 labels and 3,000 bottles available to sample, and it won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 2006, 2007 and 2008.

There’s also a chilled out wooden shack, otherwise known as the Bongo Rum Bar which, as the name would suggest, serves a range of rums. If you’d rather unwind somewhere a little livelier, head to Bimi Beach Club, Phuket’s only all day beach club (open 10am-7pm) to sip cocktails.

Even vegetarians will be spoilt for choice.
