Anantara Resort Koh Samui Wins Wine Spectator Award

01 Oct 2006

The 2006 Wine Spectator Dining Guide lists nearly 4000 restaurants around the world, 14 of which are in Thailand. With a selection of 120 wines, Full Moon restaurant makes it the only award-winning restaurant in Koh Samui.

Wine Spectator magazine is recognized worldwide as a leading guide to the world's best wines. This year, the Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards program celebrates its 25th anniversary of recognizing restaurants that show passion and commitment when it comes to wine. Award winning restaurant are chosen for the quality and depth of their wine lists.

"We research the latest trends and the most popular selections every year, and update our wine lists to ensure that we provide a wide variety of new and old world wines, offering guests quality and variety" said Poonchai Poolruang, Wine Guru at Anantara Resort Koh Samui.

When it comes to Full Moon restaurant, fine Italian cuisine and wine are not the only appeal. Designed by Bensley, the restaurant is cantilevered over the edge of the swimming pool giving diners the sensation of hovering between the deep blue sea and a dramatic torchère-lit waterway which runs the length of the gardens.

The restaurant's three interlocking terraces start with the pool bar on the lowest level and ascend over two floors of dining, all of which are connected by a void space in which a huge full moon globe hangs suspended. Polished concrete beams with copper edgings, teak and copper-trimmed furniture, custom-made ceramic tableware and a menu of contemporary Italian cuisine finish off a chic restaurant, which since its opening, has become a highly-sought after venue.

Opened in November 2004 on the Thai island of Koh Samui, Anantara is a boutique-sized resort of just 106 rooms and suites, all of which look out over the azure-waters and white sands of Bophut Bay towards the island of Koh Phangan. Anantara Resort, set on 11 acres of beachfront land next to the laid-back haven of Fisherman's Village on the north coast of Samui is less than 10-minutes' drive from the airport. 

Anantara is taken from an ancient Sanskrit word that means 'borderless water', a name chosen for this element's association in many Asian cultures with wealth and good fortune. Inspired by local architecture and sensitive to the indigenous culture, Anantara Resorts are currently located in the seaside town of Hua Hin (220kms south of Bangkok), on Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand and in the Golden Triangle in the country's north. Anantara Resort Maldives opened in September 2006.
