INSPIRING AND INNOVATIVE DISHES CREATED JUST FOR YOU

Food is at the very heart of Thai culture – a good meal should not only taste incredible, but be beautifully presented and above all shared. Khun Seree, the excellent chef, plates Thai and international cuisine with equal skill and creativity. From the intricate flavours of Thai Green Curry or Steamed Fish with Garlic, Chilly & Lime to a fresh Greek Salad or a delicate Scandinavian Salmon Soup, you will amazed by the experience. A daily chat with Khun Mem or Khun Nok to decide on your menus gives a very personal touch to your dining experience.

How it Works

The Chef and the villa managers liaise with the guests during the day to create the menu for the next day’s lunch and dinner. A variety of 4-5 different dishes is selected for every day. A lovely dining tradition at Villa Kalyana focuses on the concept of ‘family sharing’ where various dishes are put on the table to help yourself and pass along. Don’t worry there is always plenty of food to go around so those greedy relations will get a second helping! A buffet breakfast with fresh fruits and juices is served every morning to suit both early and late risers.

A galley kitchen is available for guests to make snacks and drinks throughout the day.

Places to Dine

Villa Kalyana has a fine variety of dining areas that will complement your menu choices whatever the time of day. The main ‘long table’ dining room is designed for large ‘family and friends’ groups with seating for up to twenty-four guests. The large covered terrace of the Lotus wing offers space for over 50 guests on different table setups. For some greater intimacy and white sand between your toes, enjoy a candlelight dinner out on the beach, or have an undisturbed private meal on your own terrace deck. Try dining in the lush garden or on the pool deck under the soft lights and swaying palms while enjoying the cool breezes and sounds of the sea.

One of the highlights is a beach BBQ, set up from the staff directly on the beach, with a life BBQ station at the table!

Culinary Experiences

Our Chefs can prepare any Thai dish and most Western dishes. Speciality kitchens dishes are also available on request. Lunch and dinner are based on the ‘family sharing’ concept where the dishes are set on the table for everyone to help themselves. For food connoisseurs, cooking fans, or just the plain curious, the chef will be delighted to show you how the kitchen turns out such amazing food. He might whisk up some Pan Fried Scallops with Asparagus or a Grilled Beef Tenderloin with Penang Curry Sauce – mouth-watering!

Overview of Thai Food

Thai cuisine is mouth-watering, more than just exquisite taste, it is also texture, colour and the striking presentation that make it so enjoyable. Dishes from all regions of Thailand have been fused to create a remarkable depth of quality and variety of dishes.

There is a magical chemistry of tastes in Thai dishes; salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and spicy chilly. Cucumber is your best bet to cool the mouth if you dare to try any particularly spicy dishes.

Thai food is a delicious adventure for the palate and with the added use of aromatic herbs like ginger, lemon grass and tamarind it makes for an exciting journey.
