Holidays can be tough. A day laying by the beach (or pool, if the mood takes you) and taking in the stunning blue skies and glimmering oceans of Koh Samui can be exhausting. With all that hard work, you’re bound to work up an appetite, and there’s an easy way to satisfy your tastebuds - Anantara Bophut’s award-winning Full Moon restaurant is the perfect way to satisfy your senses.
Executive Chef Marty Kindleysides is originally from Australia, but his work has taken him around the world - including India, South Korea and the Philippines - and it’s offered a great source of inspiration for the new menu he’s just launched at Full Moon.
Whether blending Laos cuisine with the beef tartar or putting an Indian twist on spatchcock by firing up the tandoor, Chef Marty’s ingenious infusions are as visually impressive as they are mouth-wateringly succulent. The grill menu also offers a tempting range of seafood, steak cuts, lamb, pork and chicken, cooked to perfection to your specification.
Chef Marty’s emphasis is on the freshest and tastiest produce, and trying to find ingredients with a local touch. “It was a project that we took on board here at the resort, that we wanted to lower our carbon footprint,” Chef Marty explains. “Our last menu, we were flying in a lot of imported products, but we realised here in Thailand there’s a lot of passionate producers and growers that have these amazing products right here. This inspired us to put it on our menus, and cut our carbon footprint for the resort.”
In a tropical paradise like Koh Samui, a meal at Full Moon is a delectable feast. Experience the unique flavours and stunning setting of Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort. Dine on divine dishes, knowing it’s not only fresh and locally sourced, but unequivocally appetising at the same time.
