My wife and I are off to The Peace Resort in early January 18.
We are looking for recommendations for nice restaurants to enjoy.
We stayed at Peace resort last December and found many nice places to eat in the nearby Fisherman's Village. A short 5 minute walk along the beach (take a right out of the hotel onto the beach) will take you to the walking street in the Fisherman's Village and there are numerous options, some high end and others more local Thai cuisine. Our favourites were:
Cafe 69 - Thai fusion, located on the main road outside the front of the hotel
The Hut Cafe - the other end of the Fisherman's Village, great Thai food and wonderful value
Red Moon - Thai/French fusion, again in the Fishermans Village
K-Siri - Next door to Peace Resort on the main road, great for a Thai lunch
Dear Ollie G
Thanks for replying, and of course your recommendations.
May I ask you if there’re any other tips with regards to Peace Resort as we are looking forward to some sun, wine and getting away from this horrible weather in the UK
Have a look at TA's restaurant reviews.
Take a 5 min taxi ride to supatra. You won’t go anywhere else
We only stayed here for six nights last December but thoroughly enjoyed our time at the hotel. There was no need to eat at the hotel restaurant in the evenings as there are so many decent eateries on your doorstep, but we often used the hotel bar for a pre-dinner cocktail on the way to the Fishermans Village and they were very good, often stopping in here at the end of the night too.
There is also a lovely bar on the beach called Cocotams, this is in the same direction from the hotel as if you are walking to the Fishermans Village (you can't really miss it if walking along the beach) and has seats, beanbags and even swings to relax on while sipping cocktails and watching the sun go down.
Another recommendation with the hotel was a private half day tour of the Island which included a tour of the Big Buddha and nearby temples, a waterfall and others areas you can choose on the day. This was great value and really enjoyable.
Have a great holiday!
Thanks and best regards
We loved Barracuda at Fishermans village. Expensive, but a very nice restaurant. We also had a few meals at Krua Thai in Fishersmans village. Tables in the sand with twinkling lights in the trees. very romantic, although the food and service could have been a bit better. Also recommend a drink on a bean bag at Coco Tam´s bathing the fire show.
The restaurant at Peace resort is really bad, so I would avoid that one - even for lunch. The resort itself is wonderful. Especially after the refurb.
If you fancy something other than Thai food, there’s a great Tapas restaurant on the side street in a Fishermans next to Karma Sutra. Ran by a Spanish guy it’s amazing.
Coco Tams has also recently opened a restaurant which I’m looking forward to trying too.
There’s plenty to choose from down there though, just take a stroll and take your pick.
Might see you there!
There are plenty of nice restaurants along the beach in Fishermans Village. Coming from the Peace Resort, one of the first restaurant is Sabienglae, a relatively inexpensive Thai seafood restaurant, on the right, then the already mentioned Barracuda, one of the best restaurants Thailand, featured on CNN, further along the walking street, Happy Elephant, Gusto, a very good Italian restaurant and Starfish & Coffee, another restaurant recommended by CNN Insider. Happy Elephant, Gusto, Starfish & Coffee and many other restaurants have tables directly on the beach.
+1 for Starfish & Coffee and if you fancy a nice stake try Churrasco. That one is on the Ring Road to the left of your hotel.
