Betelnut Restaurant
Located on the newly developed Chaweng Boulevard (Soi Colibri) close to Central Samui Beach Resort
Tel: (077) 413 370


It's chic, it's classy, it's fun, it's betelnut. When internationally renowned Californian chef Jeffrey Lord left the kitchen of a local 5-star resort last year, many Samui gourmets feared they'd lost his skills forever. They needn't have worried! He went off to concentrate on his new tasks as a partner in the health centre/retreat - Tamarind Springs. Although instrumental in making that venture enormously successful, he realised how much he missed his real vocation cooking. Thus the birth of his superb betelnut restaurant. Designed to accommodate a select group of people in a small space. The menu is ever- changing and you'll think each dish is your favourite - until you try the next! For reservations call 413 370.

You can do the tour within any schedule variation as long as you keep in mind that the Snake Farm has only two shows at 11:00 am and 2:00pm.

The short 20 minute trip to Koh Matsum is pleasurable and simple. Learn about the amazing science of Pearl cultivation and watch the experienced and careful technician operate on a live oyster.

Samui Aquarium
Located at Laem Set Beach
Tel: (077) 424-017
A very interesting place to visit for the entire family. Educational, and fun, The Aquarium is air-conditioned, and comfortable. The aquariums are filled with the many species of fish found in the waters around Samui. Unlike most aquariums found in the region, The Samui Aquarium is privately owned and maintain their own salt water environment and grow their own coral as well. I found one of the ponds particularly interesting in that you can actually touch some of the fish if you're careful. They do like to nibble anything that resembles food. After your tour either stop for lunch or dinner or get a photo with the special baby Asian Bengal and Leopard Tigers!

Try their Aphrodisiac Eel for a night you'll never forget . Beachfront or Patio dining available. Reasonably priced.

Vimarnmek Restaurant
 Located in the Santiburi Dusit Resort, Mae Nam
Tel : (077) 425-031-38
I was so impressed with this restaurant that I woke up the following day after our remarkable dinner thinking about it. I asked the gratious General Manager of the resort if he would allow me to say a few words about this great restaurant. Having lived on Samui for over 3 years now it is no secret that some of the best dining in all of Thailand can be found here. If it is possible for one restaurant to be considered the best in terms of quality and service Vimarnmek would be at the top of my list. From the moment you walk in to this warm and wonderfully decorated restaurant, the staff treat you as someone very special. Genuine smiles and good cheer can be found here and once you sit down they are very attractive and willing to make your experience one to always remember. I went with a well-travelled friend on a Friday, which was Italian Night here. He agreed with my sentiments that this was a special place. I couldn't seem to get enough of the Cannelloni, which was probably as good (if not better) than my mom's ( sorry mom ). My guest went for three return servings of the pancake crepes with orange and caramel sauce. This wonderful place will be culinary delight for anyone guaranteed!
Open:10:00am-22:00pm
