Lamai romantic dinner

The majority of the Koh Samui holiday resorts and boutique hotels are located on the northeast coast. In a clockwise direction the main beaches are Maenam, Bophut, Plai Laem, Cheng Mon, Chaweng and Lamai. Each beach has its own inimitable charms and draws. Chaweng is the raucous big brother and Lamai is an altogether more chilled out location.

Lamai is where couples and families are made to feel right at home and singles come to get away from it all. Lamai’s collection of boutique resorts and villa complexes are welcoming and enhance the sensation of arriving in paradise. There are lots of eateries where couples can enjoy a Lamai romantic dinner.

Resorts on the beachfront at Lamai have their own restaurants and outdoor terraces. These patio restaurants face the pristine waters of Lamai Bay and are ideal for a romantic dinner. Dining on delectable Thai seafood delights while sharing a bottle of wine under a starlit sky is heaven as far as those in love are concerned.

Lamai’s beach is long and sandy and perfect for romantic moonlight strolls. A wander along the beach has the added bonus of being able to check out other restaurants suitable for a romantic dinner in Lamai. A firm favourite with those in love is the Romantic Bamboo Restaurant. As its name implies, this rustic restaurant is made out of bamboo.

The Romantic Bamboo only has a few tables and with a position right next to the beach offers a great venue to enjoy a cosy meal. The staff and chef are very attentive and are willing to adapt their dishes to taste. The menu is a fusion of Thai and Italian. Diners can choose from items that include green curries with seafood, pasta and prawns, and garlic bruschetta. Home-made ice cream provides a fitting grand finale to dinner at the Romantic Bamboo.

The Patio Restaurant is another recommended destination for a special occasion. This eatery is close to one of Lamai’s fine boutique resorts. The well-laid terrace at this eatery leaves couples far enough apart to carry on intimate conversations. Those who really want a Lamai romantic dinner for two can opt for a private awning. Prosecco sparkling wine is the ultimate accompaniment to the fresh seafood and international dishes served here. 

The final restaurant that holidaymakers in Lamai choose for a splurge on a romantic meal is Rocky’s Dining Room. Rocky’s is attached to a resort and a short walk from the central tourism zone. Diners can opt to dine on the terrace or on a rock patio. A romantic dinner here is truly exotic and among the dishes on offer are sea bass garnished with black truffle and hazelnut, and duck foie gras.
