Restaurants inspired by the splendor of Koh Samui


Koh Samui is known for its fish and shellfish, spices, jasmine rice, rice noodles, rich curries and pungent dips, brought together with intriguing influences from China, Malaysia and even India. Each of the restaurants and bars at Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui celebrates this wonderful culinary heritage. At our thatched roof Pool Bar just steps from the beach, your cocktail can be infused with one of the famed local Thai rums, or you can order a freshly made dish of a Koh Samui favorite like khao phad, Thai fried rice. Visit the Lobby Lounge for an unforgettable view of the Gulf of Thailand while enjoying afternoon tea or crafted cocktails. For a change of pace, sample the home-style bistro cooking at Kiree The Bistro restaurant, with our chefs preparing a selected menu of European and Asian-inspired dishes, presented in the elegant dining room with beach and sea views or outside amongst the sea breezes on the terrace.
